Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing.

This is the best hotseat / local co-op / splitscreen FPS zombie game out there.

If you have friends over you can play some pretty cool ESCAPE missions where you have to do objectives while killing and looting. Fun on Extreme difficulty where 2 hits (sometimes 3 if you are lucky) and you are dead. That is without having "turn into a zombie eventually after you get hit once" mode.

Recommended because headshots only kill these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, and great Local Co-op: 7.5/10.0

this game is a coop action shooter in which survivors are forced to work together or die many painful deaths. I like this game because it has what other mainstream games dont, like barricading, infection and gettin to play as the mother F in zombies son! But there is another option than this game. If you dont have any money and want a really tense, zombie HORROR game instead, I recomend no more room in hell as it has all the things I like in a zombie game and... ITS FOR FREE!

They really need to implement a ♥♥♥♥ing party system, I'm tired of recent games still using hamachi, and port forwarding as the only way to play with friends. If you're going to advertise yourself as a multiplayer game, implement a ♥♥♥♥ing party system.

This game isnt bad. In fact it is quite fun to play. Whats bad is that you are not able to host your own server. The developers promised to fix that month ago, but they never did. You can forget playing the normal multiplayer, since no one is playing and when someone is playing he tries to sabotage your game.

I made the mistake of buying this during early access thinking that one day it would be finished. This game has been abandoned by its developers and community. If you already own the game you can still squeeze a few hours of fun cause it's not terrible, but if you're thinking of buying it don't.

HA, contagion had its moments, and then here it is now, dead, devs left it, and most (99%) of servers are empty. Used to be good but no updates in 1.5 years is not good. Sleep well my little ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Pretty decent Zombie survival game,it could use some tweaking to make it more enjoyable and maybe a few more details to it could help improve the lifespan of this game. Its great to play co op but its has some side effects to it.

Overall its a great game but not for the base price it sells at, Its better to buy it on sale for around $3.00 which i think is a more suitable price for this game.

For anyone in SOUTH AFRICA:

The game has potential and I would love to recommend it as a whole, but unfortunately the lack of local servers makes lag a real factor to consider and hosting a multiplayer game seemed to just result in bugs and friends not being able to connect.

HOWEVER, for those of you in OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD:
This game has a great concept and it looks like it could be a lovely co-op game, with anyone that dies joining the zombies to try and kill you off. It really does look fun and the graphics are decent. I, unfortunately, can't say much beyond that.

Ultimately, my friends and I had to refund it because we were always 500ms behind everything always. Such a pity really, it could have been the start of a beautiful love affair...

Game Score: 5/10

Contagion is just another zombie shooter. It has a couple different game modes which could be fun if it weren't for the games god awful party and matchmaking system. I'm not sure what's so difficult about giving players the ability to party up but that's a sure sign of a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game when players can't easily play with friends.

Pros:
- Zombies, I always like zombies
- Varied game modes which allow players to fight each other while also running from zombies.
- Weapon variety

Cons:
- Garbage controls. Other than classic WASD first person shooter controls it just feels clunky
- Matchmaking
- Hitboxes are odd when dodging zombies and attacking players

The best part about this game is thefact that it has split-screen, but that is quite buggy as when one person dies you can no longer veiw the texts and verticle mode doesn't work, also the second player can only veiw the texts while the first person is veiwing the texts. I would manly recomend this game to people that have friends that come over often or friends that have this game. The graphics are not the best, but I don't expect that much from a $10 still in development game made in the source engine. The game is obviously not perfect and could probably do with a story mode or something of that like.
