Well unfortunately this game's stock appearance is kind of dull, and bad, but that can be overcome a bit by steam workshop content, SweetFX, and things like that so much as you can with things like that. (There aren't hd texture mods for this) This game is fun if you have friends to team with, and in my opinion, if you aren't doing the same map over and over.
There isn't really much of a learning curve to this, so anybody can pick up and play this. You kill things, basically, go to a trader between rounds, rinse and repeat until you make it to a boss at the end. Hopefully you survive.

While generally, Killing Floor receives an overall average score, it is actually unjustified without truly embracing what the developers desired.
The moment you play Killing Floor, you find yourself easily swarmed, easily surrounded, easily annihilated. Why? The reason is simple. Killing Floor beyond beginner mode was geared for teamwork. There is, without a doubt, no way you can start this game and be good without a team.
Killing Floor has a unique spawning system where the zombies will always spawn local to the players. They will specifically target areas that are not covered and work to surround you relentlessly. Unless you are a professional, have around a hundred hours on your belt, a level 5 minimal (out of 6 levels) character, you will not survive solo.
To break it down, the classes are divided into Field Medic, Support Specialist, Sharpshooter, Commando, Berserker, Firebug and Demolition.
Those who love to play support roles, Field Medic and obviously Support Specialist are for you. You will either heal your allies while killing what they can't, or wielding doors shut strategically as the Support Specialist.
Sharpshooters and Commando have their own specialized targets. These two make a good pair in taking out the strongest zombies together. What a Sharpshooter sniper cannot kill in a single blow, you can count on the Commando to finish off with their ability to see invisible targets and the zombie health bars.
In addition, Support Specialist is also the shotgun spray king. Along with Firebug that causes damage over time, and the destructive Demolition's firepower, you will have the perfect selection of crowd controllers who take out all the weak ones as the second line of defense.
As for your first line, who else can do a better job than the Berserker? Well... except for the unexpected tank, the Field Medic. While the Berserker is an excellent melee unit that cannot be pinned down easily, the medic, when armored, can resist death from even the boss for a good 10-15 seconds head on while your ally may be mowed down in a second.
Killing Floor still does seasonal events, gives special unlocks, and continually adds new maps and game modes. You will not be disappointed.
Be warned, Killing Floor is not a game to be played alone. Personally, I highly recommend a team of at least 4 individuals. By mid levels, you can go with 3. Later on, you can even solo. But as a team, you can take on even the most biggest, baddest of zombies on the worst difficulties.
Can you ditch your soloing habits from the world of FPS and adapt to the teamwork requirements of Killing Floor? Or will you be the first one eaten alive...

A good game i'll probably never get tired of playing.It's really good and playing with friends is very fun.When you start a game you are dropped off in a map and you have to fight zombies and specimens which are tougher infected that are hard to kill.There are also these almost invisible specimens that will probably get you at some point in a match.In a match you have to kill these zombies and specimens to get money and buy new weapons, there are different waves of zombies and every new one gets tougher and harder than the previous ones.If you are looking for a good MP game to play this one is for you.You won't regret it.

This game is very unique and fun... for multiplayer. You're thrust into a world of zombies and death and you and a few others must battle to survive. It's a very fun multiplayer experience with various maps and weapons. However, this game lacks decent graphics, stability, and can seem a bit stiff at times. It can also get repetitive and boring, and your level doesn't seem to really matter or effect you in a large way. But if you're willing to cooperate and use teamwork with friends, you'll have a fun time.

If you like to shoot wave after wave of zombies, this is the game for you. If you like to shoot wave after wave of zombies with a group of friends, this is the game for you and your friends. Teams go up to 8 (I think? It’s a lot) and the name of the game is zombie survival for 10 waves. Zombies get progressively harder and more aggressive and there are abundant classes to choose from as a character. Burn the zombies to a crisp as a pryo or be the hero and keep your team’s health up as a medic. The controls work as any FPS would work, although the game motion feels kind of slow. There is no running, you’re default set to be running and even then it seems pretty slow. There IS NO CROSSHAIR, you’ve been warned. Straight up, looking down the barrel through the iron sights so it is something you have to get used to and adapt. No campaign mode, just straight survival either solo or with a team. Great fun if you’ve got a bunch of mates to play with but if not, there are a bunch of servers online with random, friendly public servers anyways. Pick it up on sale if you see it, probably next Halloween for sure.
