At the time of writing this (11/2/2013 ), Contagion is still currently in beta form.
With that being said....Contagion already outperforms most triple A title retail releases. With it's addictive game modes, dead on gameplay and rock solid servers, Contagion is already putting some life back into the into the online co-op survival horror genre laid out by classics such as Left4Dead and the Killing Floor.
Running on an optimized Source engine Contagion's graphics are sharp, smooth and alive with death around every corner. From the lighting effects in the dark corridors to the reflection effects seen in mirrors, lakes and puddles the developers have created a world filled with atmosphere. Yet, the sound in Contagion is what will immediately draw you into it's world. Each echo, gunshot in the distance and glass under foot will immerse you into this adrenaline filled horror show. Each and every thing about Contagion screams instant classic!
I have never written a review while a game was still in Alpha or Beta form but, the developers created an experience that I can't get enough of and I wanted to put any questions to rest as to whether or not you should purchase this now while in Beta or after the final release.
Although I wouldn't consider this my final review, I will absolutely recommend Contagion to everyone here on the Steam platform.
If you've never been part of a Beta release and the excitement that goes along with being a part of a successful title in the making or if you always wanted to say you were there from the beginning before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon before it became a household name.....This is your opportunity!!!
I 100% recommend purchasing Contagion in Beta form or otherwise. I go as far to say you'd be crazy not to. Trust me as the title states this game is contagious!!!
Contagion Beta (V2990) review 9.2/10!!!
Buy this game!!!
