Great Co-opvikas8395 | Sept. 5, 2014 | See all vikas8395's reviews »
The most AND BEST zombie co-op post apocalypse game. I can't describe how UNDERRATED Killing Floor is. It keeps you on the end of your nerves as you learn more strategies (like staying together with your team the whole time). Unlike other games like Left 4 Dead 2, this is a more strategic one, and a lot of teamwork is required. Playing with voice comm is very effective. Conserve your ammo, and play on!
Is Killing Floor just another zombie game?Bombolz | Sept. 4, 2014 | See all Bombolz's reviews »
Right off the bat, the answer to that question is, possibly. Let me explain.
Killing Floor essentially has 2 game modes to choose from; Objective or Wave.
Objective mode requires the player(s) to complete several tasks to continue, with each task complete, there is a short break in between to purchase new gear from the money gained after killing the zombies. Each task will have zombies, so there aren't any puzzle tasks or such as far as I can see. This makes objective mode very much like Left 4 Dead, except it provides a much more arcade atmosphere. At the end of every objective mode there will always be a final boss(es) to kill which further emphasizes the arcade feeling.
Wave mode is essentially what it sounds like, a very basic and simple arcade mode where zombies come in waves and after each wave players are given a small times to purchase new equipment with the money made from killing the zombies.
Killing Floor is very much an arcade zombie shooter, and horror doesn't even get a say, it's not scary, the most you will get is a small jump from turning around a dark corner and see a zombie in your face.
By now I've probably mentioned arcade several times now. This game is very much an zombie shooter arcade game, now don't be mislead as this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you think about it, games nowadays are very different from arcade shooters, and Killing Floor delivers, for that matter, there were a lot of arcade zombie games in the past but they were all too old. Moving on, Killing Floor offers 2 experiences of play, Co-op and single player. Co-op is generally something that is more fun to play with friends rather than some randoms, although it still offers a nice play session. Singleplayer offers a entirely different atmosphere, and you always expect a zombie behind you as there is no one to cover your back. Over time, singleplayer gets boring extremely quick and most of the missions on normal difficulty or higher are usually to hard for a single player to win. Over time, like all arcade games, Killing Floor will get repetitive, and while I don't see myself playing this every day, it's definitely some fun whenever I hop onto the game, however often that may be.
The game's visuals are very good, especially considering how long this game has been out, although some may be frustrated with the grainy screen. The audio is usually just some instrumental metal, which fits with the arcade gameplay.
Killing floor does offer a class system which freshens things once you get bored of one class. Each class has their own benefits and experience, where each class levels up by doing different tasks. For example, the medic would level up from healing others (healing yourself with the syringe does not count making this a very difficult class to level as a solo player).
Ultimately, Killing Floor isn't something entirely new but a combination of past arcade shooters and modern day shooters. It offers great co-op gameplay, but it does get repetitive after a while. As for the price, I think it's definitely worth a pick up at $20, especially if your friends are also considering to get it as well.

This game is one of those games you never get bored of, mainly because of its social aspect. This is a game you can play with friends and have endless new experiences because it adapts to the way you want to play it. You can either form an assault team, you can take shelter and cover each other's backs, and so on and so forth. Its potential is huge, and the laughs and the thrill is just never-ending.
A great game to play with friendseduardXD | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all eduardXD's reviews »
Killing Floor is a survival game where a variety of mutants will try to kill us. The fun is concentrated in the cooperative mode, because we have to help each other unless we want monsters surround us easily. A normal game is divided into waves that progressively increase in difficulty until the final wave where we must beat the patriarch, the boss of the game. The game offers many maps, weapons and costumes to wear. It also incorporates steam workshop, so we can download a large amount of mods easily. Its graphics are acceptable, the soundtrack consists in heavy metal and its price is affordable, so you will find a lot of people playing continuously. I recommend it to people who want a fun cooperative experience.
Awesome Multiplayer gamelajvjjajajaaaa | July 31, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
Killing Floor is first-person zombie shooter game. It's more for a co oparetive gameplay than singleplayer. There are waves after waves and you have to survive all of theme. Kill as much zombies ass possible to earn cash and to open the trader to buy weapons and armor. The trader is open for a minute so so go fast. There are tons of zombies, weak ones and really strong ones which can reap you apart. There are 10 waves + 11 where is the boss Patriarch. He have rocked launcher and chain gun which takes so much damage. He can also go invisible or melee you with his stomach. You can choose from 7 perks.They have unique powers like to take bigger melee damage, to get bigger headshot damage and more fire power. And also when you hold lighter things you run faster. As for the zombies there are several the basic one clot,the second is gorefast that are really fast and crowlers which jump a lot.Sirens are nasty screamers. There is stalkers to become invisible and husks can shoot energy balls from the cannon on there hands. The last two are the strongest Scrake with big chainsaw and the Fleshpound is something big that angers and kills you in a second. Good luck with this.
