Exciting Zombie Co-op GameBlackou__t | Dec. 6, 2014 | See all Blackou__t's reviews »
In my personal opinion, this zombie survival co-op game is the most entertaining of its kind. There is an interesting character leveling system available which would please any sort of apocalypse go-er be it with melee weapons, snipers, or shotguns. Eerie level designs and frightening zombies make this game a blast also, delivering enough scares to want to work together. This game is heavy on the co-op so if you're decide to stray from the group, you're as good as dead. This game is also supported by steam workshop, making this game incredibly more satisfying as you can download user-created levels from themes ranging from Lord of the Rings to Portal 2, along with interesting "escape the room" user created levels which give an entirely new gameplay experience if you're tired of just killing zombies. It is difficult to make a server to play this game online however, but once you can figure it out or if you're simply having a lan party, this game is definitely the way to go!

The game is really fun. Guns are great and classes are nicely varied. The game can be very hard if you choose it to be, but also easy. Single player is much harder than multi-player, and I think multi-player is really how you should play. The game is not perfect, but it's a fun time when just wanting to play with a group of friends.

I get bored often, and this game gives me something to do. It's simple, and that what makes it good. What do you do? You shoot zombies. usually I don't like zombie games, but this one is an exception. It's just a good shooting games to shoot the time by. My only problem with the game is that there isn't a crosshair or a marker in the middle of the screen like I've gotten used to in first-person shooters. (You'll likely memorize it very quickly if actually aim.)
A zombie shoot fest that will keep you entertained!Stardust01FTW | Oct. 24, 2014 | See all Stardust01FTW's reviews »
Killing floor is a first person shooter that takes place in a zombie apocalypse. Killing floor is a game that focuses mostly on Co op than solo. I find this game a lot more fun with friends than to play by yourself. It's a easy to learn game and not hard to play. I find myself relying on my friend to heal me while I was shooting the zombies. The game may look like a generic boring, wave based zombie game, but I assure you, it is more fun than it looks. The game kept me on my toes throughout all of the matches since you can get swarmed and surrounded so easily if you're not paying attention. The game has two game modes, objective and survival mode. The game also has a perk system with each perk specializing in their own little category. The game also has special zombies that will keep the game challenging and fun. The cons that I can think about are the fact that the really good weapons are dlc's and most of the characters are dlc. But it is still a game worth every penny that you spend.
Zombie Co-Op Shooter Done Rightcptmold | Oct. 19, 2014 | See all cptmold's reviews »
94/100. A FREAKIN' 94. I don't make that kind of rating sparingly, only for the best of the best do I rate a game in the 90's.
Well, it's like if an indie developer woke up and said "hey, I want to make a zombie shooter," except this time, it was done right. Tripwire's KF deserves every bit of praise it gets.
You've got 15 blocks of weight you can carry and a trader opens every round to sell weapons. You've got 60 seconds (on Normal) to get to the trader and buy something before it closes and the next wave begins, meaning you can't just camp in the same area the whole time.
You've got a med-syringe you can use to heal yourself and teammates, but it has to recharge every time you use it and you won't be able to shoot while using it. You've also got a welder that can keep a door shut until the zombies do enough damage to break the weld. If you keep your welder on the door, you can keep it shut for a little longer, but eventually there might be enough zeds at the door to get through your door.
Then, you've got a variety of classes that get perks related to their weapons. Sharpshooters will get more out of snipers, pistols, etc. while a Commando reloads assault rifles faster and can spray down a hallway with a lot less recoil. Aside from those classes, you've got a support, a medic, a berserker, and more.
There's plenty of wave-by-wave maps, and as of last Summer there's 3 objective-based maps as well. Combined with Steam workshop, you can download custom maps and get even more out of your purchase.
Running on Unreal Engine 2, it's well-optimized and has graphics that get the job done but can run on a netbook. Overall, this is definitely a worthwhile buy and deserves to be a PC staple title. I'm still waiting for Killing Floor 2, which has been shown to have some of the best gore and animations seen in recent games.
