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.

Great game with many Coop and PvP modes. Ammo is scarce, teamplay essential and the atmosphere is often very tense! You can play on public servers or host your own server. Mods allow new maps, weapon skins and other things. It has a lot in common with "No more room in hell" which is good and free but Contagion is a much, much more polished game while "No more room in hell" more feels like a mod.

I first played Contagion way back in Early Access, and while it was a decent game then, it definitely needed work. I then went a very long time without playing it, and recently decided to try it out again. I came back not expecting much to have changed. However, it has become a very enjoyable game, with several different and fun gamemodes, splitscreen multiplayer, and steam workshop integration. While I rarely buy games that are not on sale, this is one that I can actually say is worth the full price.

Wasnt expecting much after reading the negative reviews, but it was actually a fun game to play on co-op. I would definitely recommend friends to get it.

This game has potential, but i would suggest anyone not to buy it since it gets quite boring after a while, not many maps to play and not many people play this game..

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.

I bought this game for the sake of a break from zombie panic. And its true the multiplayer games are dead. BUT if you and some friends want to kill zombies just for fun with good graphics and some challenge then get this game. i understand when people give this a bad review because it was hot a year and a half ago. but i play this game by myself and find it enjoyible for a little session at a time. plus it has workshop in case you wanted an anime cell phone and nicholas cage flashlight in a zombie invasion.

so in all fairness should you get the game. on sale sure like 80% or 95% but not full price. and its a good game to play by yourself. because im lonely :P

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.

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.

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...

Played this game for a bit, and I can say it's fun and challenging. Also, damn, that soundtrack adds a lot of creepy feeling into it. Nice job!
