Critics Consensus: World War Z lacks originality, sticking very close to the core tenents of the Zombie genre, and the gunplay is lackluster. But the game remains fun and enjoyable, and its hiccups don’t stop it from being a satisfying zombie slasher with a good group of friends.

World War Z’s lack of variety and ambition can’t stop a satisfying zombie slashing with a good group of friends.

Bland and mostly harmless, World War Z is another co-op zombie shooter that you could play.

World War Z: Aftermath is another lumbering step forward for zombie-kind, even if it doesn’t completely satisfy one’s appetite for brains.
