The best free game that I have ever invested almost 1000 hours of my time on! The concept of Zombie Panic! Source is to survive and do the objectives to win, or survive long enough to kill all the zombie lives, or until the round time is up. Once you get killed by a player zombie, you turn into a zombie and have to kill the humans. Before I started playing ZPS I wanted a game with this similar idea and was satisfied when I finally got to experience this game. Decent community, aside from the hackers, exploiters, campers, trolls.. That and the game needs an update because many players have quit playing as it is. ANYWAY, Overall, It's a pretty decent game, and if you haven't played this game, I suggest you give it a try. I'm sure everyone would enjoy it once they learned the basics of how to play.

This game is amazing!

Till this day it is still my favorite survivor/zombie game of all time.

So what makes this game so good?

It features fryingpans and chairs as melee weapons

Well, there's a bunch of reasons. For me it's mainly because the game features "traditional" zombies (somewhat slow moving, deadly in numbers etc.) unlike many modern "zombie"-games that feel more like battling aliens or mutants. I like the old traditional zombie style of the only weapon available to the zombies being their claws and teeths. This doesn't make the game boring when you play as the zombies though! You'll always have many possible ways to bring doom upon the humans. Hide in the darkness and strike when the time is right, or swarm the remaining survivors with your fellow zombies in an all-out zombie horde rush? it's all up to you!

Playing as the survivors is also great fun! The game mainly has 2 gamemodes being played: "Objective" mode where you are put in a situation where you need to complete certain objectives to get the hell out of there before every single survivor has been eaten alive!
The second gamemode is all about the survivors trying to stay alive at the location they're already at. After the survivors kill X amount of zombies, they win.... If they're not dead by then.

Another thing I really like about the game is the atmosphere and the incredibly fun skill-"curve" in the game. When you've played for a while and become a skilled player, you will likely have learned the maps and weapons so well that you can take on more zombies than ever before! An example could be the very powerful weapon: The magnum. With this gun, a skilled player can take down 6 zombies with 6 bullets unlike the regular starting pistols that won't kill with 1 bullet to the head. As you learn more about the guns you'll also learn how to properly save ammo and when to use which weapon. important thing though: Be sure to share weapons with your teammates if all they have is a baseball bat and a pistol with 2 bullets! Be sure to share both weapons & ammo.

Teamwork is very important in the game, no matter if you're human or zombie. Humans need to stay together to have a chance to survive, and zombies also need to go together in alot of situations (unless ambushing) to have a chance at killing survivors while facing large amounts of gunfire and fryingpans.

How can you not want to try out a game that lets you chair/fryingpan zombies to death?

All in all a really good game that I think any fan of survivor games should try out.

Good game, good memories, great gameplay.
One minus of this game: Most of people in this game doesnt care about teamwork. Its too hard to give me some damn bullets, when I really need em?
Its to hard to work in team and complete objectives together?
Are you playing for damn kills only, without care about your team? Well get in Church\Cabin 24\7 servers and play there...
Oh yeah, and sv_pure 1\2 abuse.

In total: This game is fine, just give a try.
