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.

Contagion is zombie game, but it's not only a zombie game, there are different game modes that add multiple layers of playability.

The game it's self is fun. It's got solid gun play, well designed maps and a few game modes that give you the feeling that you're getting your money’s worth. It's not the best zombie game. But at the price of the game you're getting great value for money.

I never encountered any bugs and all of my friends agreed that even though we didn't play the game for long, it was worth buying.

extreamly beautiful game, quite a bit like the game No More Room In Hell. No one seems to know how to do objectives but its a nice game to slay zombies if you are into that kind of thing.

I remember watching Contagion's trailer and how it looked like is was going to be an awesome game. After it released and reviews weren't that favorable, I waited and picked it up in a bundle. Its not a bad game, but the trailer made it look like something more than it is and that's disappointing. I wish it had an actual story as the trailer looked to have. The gameplay is like every other generic FPS except with zombies, but it isn't that good. The controls aren't as responsive as they should be, graphics/animations are just ok and the sounds are well, not that great either. I wish that I could recommend, but Contagion just isn't worth your time or money.

Bought this on a sale due to hype. I wish I hadn't. Get No More Room in Hell, a free mod, this one doesn't do anything that doesn't.

Review as of 8/11/2016
TL;DR Only recommending if you have friends to play with, otherwise it's boring/dead (no pun intended)

Overview
Contagion is a Zombie survival game with an emphisis on gunplay and spooky areas. The game itself plays very well, and is actually pretty fun. It contains many different modes which I will further go into detail now

Escape
Players must work together to complete all the objectives and escape. Objectives, items, and pathing are random, so each play through is different. Any survivors that lose their life along the way will return as infected and must eliminate the remaining survivors before they complete the objectives and escape. This is esentially the story mode, as there are some events that happen and much of it is scripted.

Hunted
This is a PvP game mode where the last survivor standing is the champion. Supplies are scattered throughout the map randomly. On death, much like Escape, you turn into a zombie with the goal of killing all other players.

Extraction
Players must work together to protect civilians and help them escape once the rescue vehicle arrives. Once you approach the location of the civs, zombies will start hording around the house. You must use the supplies at the location to defend yourselves from the zombies until the rescue vehicle arrives.

Escape is my favorite gamemode because it has the most story!

Pros
  • Creepy atmosphere
  • Fun gunplay (for the weapons that are there)
  • Not too easy (like L4D2)
  • Workshop

Cons
  • Devs abandoned the game
  • Workshop is mostly just phone backgrounds
  • Not many servers with people in them (not dead, but there's just not many people playing)
  • Few weapons

This game is the prime reason why 'early access' shouldn't exist...

The devs havent updated for almost a year now and they claimed that this game would be finished but it's far from that. They Post their undevloped game and got their money and dipped. This is why early access pisses me off, cause devs never stick to their word.

Bad netcode. trying to connect to other friends can take hours to figure out without the knowledge of the "connect" command in the console that disabled by default.

Lots of random crashes. after finally getting connected. people just crash for whatever reason.

Buggy game play. npcs get stuck and can't finish the current mission.

It's like they don't want us to play their game after buying it.
