About This Game

** Please note: a remastered and improved edition of this game is now available in Zombie Army Trilogy.**

Experience a terrifyingly intense co-op campaign for up to four players in this gut-wrenching sequel to Steam best-seller, Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army.

With World War 2 Europe overrun by legions of the undead, you must find mankind’s salvation deep in the twisted bowels of Berlin by securing the sacred artefacts that unleashed this damnation. Every step must be paid in blood as players work together against impossible odds and descend further into the demon-infested city and the terrifying Führerbunker itself.

Tackle the campaign online in co-op for up to four players, or embark on the twisted missions alone if you’ve got the bottle.

Featuring new enemies, new environments, blood curdling surprises and the return of the infamous X-ray kill cam, Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 will satisfy even the most bloodthirsty of zombie hunters.

Great if you got friends to play this with otherwise good luck searching and waiting for a random game going on in the world now that it's apparently dead due to te triology release......and now with Sniper Elite 4 coming in the horizon, I'm guessing a quadrology will be released making this, the first and the triology a mute purchase....

Too bad I need to get the triology to continue on with the story left from here....would have been nice if they made #3 a stand alone like the first two. :( I just can't justify re-buying both 1 and 2 just to get 3 unless it's really really cheap(my ♥♥♥♥ is also very tight! :P) or I get it for free somehow.

Anyways, onto the actual review:
It basically continues on where you left off from #1 and kill zombies the old fashion way, going from point A to point B and surviving hordes, etc. Basically Left 4 Dead (L4D) like game, but this game has much better graphics and the zombie killing mechnaics is old fashion(also kill cam!), where the only way to kill them is by headshots, other means like shooting them in the arms or legs or chest, doesn't kill them, they'll fall down but after a few seconds, they'll come right back up and nawling at you! They're also slow so you should be able to easily headshot them, aside from the running suicide bomber.

There are skeletons too, but their method of death is shot through the heart in the chest and not the head....

You can solo this game, but unless you enjoy being a loner - you won't have much fun doing this by yourself...

The game has partial SLi(on default SLi doesn not work) and Optimus support. For SLi, just go to this post to find how to enable it(not sure about CrossFire as I don't use AMD cards, or maybe CrossFire works out of the box for this game?) and for Optimus, go to your Nvidia Control panel-> Manage 3D settings -> Program settings, have Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 (nza2.exe) selected, and change to *High-performance NVIDIA processor when it says "2. Select the preferred graphics processor for this program which is usually on default "Use global setting (Auto-select: Integrated)" for me. For laptops with AMD GPUs well, I don't know(maybe it already works on default?) as I don't have one so go google it or something for its equivalent changes..... :P

Playing this game on maximum graphical settings, including 4x SSAA on, will net you around 20 to 40 fps, but with SLi 770s @ 1920x1080, I was able to keep it at an almost consistent 60fps at the most part6 - I have a 144Hz monitor so naturally I would either need to turn it off or at most have it set to 2.25x so it sits around 120 to 150, sometimes lower to around 50 in some places even with SSAA off. But a single 980M, just won't cut it for 4x SSAA(and this is only at 1920x1080, think about trying to run this in 3840x2160, or lesser yet still somewhat popular resolution of 2560x1440!) in this game...hahaha, perhaps two in SLi would work....but mine only comes with one.... :P Plus laptops with SLi are like $4k+ - might as well build a stronger desktop/tower with its equivalent budget.

Music and sound has the right tone so it gives us players the immersion we're after, therefore it's well done. I think this game supports surround sound, but not sure(or can't remember) I'll need to test it out some more to find that out. If it does, that's another plus for this game, especially for a zombie horror survival game like this!

Yeah overal, I like the game so it's a thumbs up from me!
Played on "The Beast"

It's obvious now that from the beginning, Rebellion had planned to make the Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army spin-off series a trilogy. This second installment came just mere months after the first, and as such it doesn't offer up much that the first game didn't already have, save for new landscape visuals and a couple new demonic creatures. For a larger grasp of the core of the game, I'll direct you to my review of the first Nazi Zombie Army here.

Somehow this title manages to come bearing more blood and gore than its predecessor, not to mention a new fiery landscape that wasn't present previously. All of the maps have at least one area that's completely on fire, while others convey the sense of burning in surrounding areas due to thick plumes of smoke highlighted by an orange-yellow backdrop. There's also a bigger horror element to this second entry, one that is equal parts psychological, disturbing, and grisly. The amount of blood-drenched bodies, pentagrams, swastikas, gore spurts, spatters, and smears have increased dramatically, it's definitely not a game for the weak of stomach.

New enemies include a Fire Demon, who bursts with uncontrollable rage and sets any surrounding grunts on fire; turning them into speedy little bags of ignited charcoal. The other new "big" enemy is the Summoner, and you can pretty well understand his role by his name. Also included are a new skeleton model with a little bit of added armor, and remodeled grunt soldiers. The rest of the foes are ones that return from the prior title; snipers, gun-toting warriors, occultists, and regular skeletons. The story is also still split up into 5 chapters, all of which last about half an hour to an hour each. There's not a whole lot that's been added, as you can clearly tell.

All of the same gameplay elements that were present in the original title are still included here, Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 also comes with all of the annoying little quirks of its sophomore adventure as well; leaving it blatantly obvious that this game was either finished, or nearly so, long before Rebellion released it. Enemies still hit a little further than their model can reach, you still kick a little further than your model can reach, you still have to stop and press E to loot a body for ammo, and grenades are still difficult to control. There are a couple things that I ran out of room to discuss within my prior review, but I'm glad that it gives me something to talk about here.

While this spin-off series is indeed challenging, especially on higher difficulties, many of the confrontations can be completely sidestepped by backing yourself into a room with a narrow corridor; many of which are stockpiled with ammunition. In almost every instance when you're faced with a "siege" or "assault" moment where large hoards of undead Nazi's come spilling your way, there's a perfect alcove for you to funnel the enemy through, making it nearly impossible for you to get hurt. Though it can be ignored, having it there takes away a large portion of the core game mechanics, and not to mention the proposed threat. The aforementioned also negates the need for the cover system, which I personally never used in either title.

Even though Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 is clearly its predecessor dressed up with some new clothes it bought from the thrift store, it's still a fun wave-based zombie annihilation game. The new maps really help to keep the experience fresh, since they're so visually stunning and different than what came before. As for the story arc, it's lackluster at best but it serves an important purpose to what appears in Zombie Army Trilogy. As usual, the online portion of this game is dead, so if you're thinking about picking it up be prepared to play either solo or with friends. Recommended at a 75% discount, only if you want to play the original, otherwise pick up Zombie Army Trilogy instead.

Rating: 4.0/5.0 - Excellent, highly worth playing.

But, Mien Fuhrer... this is only one part of the trilogy... we need all three parts to protect us...

Right. So. Hum. Sniper Elite : Nazi Zombie Army 2. The title alone reads like the gaming equivalent of Sharknado. It probably should be the gaming equivalent of Sharknado, going so far off the hysterically ridiculous scale that it actually warps around to awesome. Let's start with what this game is not - It is not in any way to be taken seriously, it is not to be played with the kind of serious approach that one might use for say, Call of Duty. That's not to say it's easy or anything, quite the opposite, but to get the most out of this game, you need to stop, put your brain in neutral, and only then, run the game.

The opening cutscene, using the ingame engine no less, provides a rather amusing explanation to how Hitler ended up meeting his maker at the hands of the very zombies he released in a sort of last ditch attempt to protect his empire. Yes, I actually had to watch the intro twice, the first time I was too busy laughing to make much sense of it all, but it's nice to know that the developers in this case played him almost as Ren from Ren and Stimpy. I near expected him to scream "YOU STUPID EEEEEDIOT" before pummeling his lieutenant with the mcguffin.


We're talking pure B movie brilliance, it's wrong in every possible way and yet the mixture somehow results in being entertaining, and that extends to the game. These zombies are not the L4D rushing mobs of screaming gnashing teeth, but rather the zombies of old. Slow, shambling, numerous. A slow and ever advancing wave of undead flesh, many of which are still decked in their uniforms and wearing helmets - this element is important, the gun modelling has been lifted from Sniper Elite V2 and as a result, deflections from indirect hits can and will happen. Additionally simply riddling a corpse with bullets isn't a total guarantee that they will stay down, more often than not they'll resurrect a short while after and require re-killing. The only solution, as with any good/terrible zombie trope is to shoot them in the head.

Unlike Sniper Elite V2's unforgiving and often po-faced approach, this one allows you to go nuts with the entire toolbox, not bother with all the stealth malarkey and go right in for the bangbangs. The result is a significantly better game, playing to the strengths of the V2 engine, complete with wonderful moments where you see your bullet go through an X-rayed version of a zombie, causing havoc as it tumbles. Grenades, tripwires, all of the fun things are yours to use and abuse, and the result is -glorious-. Carnage and havoc and a bodycount closer to the somme - and that's just the first level.

The only real criticism is that the enemies don't change much, though the inclusion of kamikaze grenade holders and the odd Stormtrooper wielding a LMG do add some solid spice to proceedings, but let's be clear, you'll be shooting zombies. You need to like shooting zombies, a lot. This game hinges around that concept, see. It's in the Title. Nazi Zombie Army. There is an Army, of Nazi Zombies. You will be killing them. If that's not you're thing, you're in the wrong place.

For an apparently throwaway game the level of options is obscene...

Seriously, one point I need to highlight. The options menu. This game delivers. In every possible way, if you want graphics customisation ohhhh boy does it deliver. Every possible option, slider and checkbox in the history of GPU tweaking exists here. Same for just about everything else, if you can change it, there's an option for it. Suffice to say, the game can be made to run on a massive spectrum of systems and will scale up to some amazing levels of pretty at the high end, whilst still managing to look good even on modest budget systems. This game set the standard for the Trilogy, and that didn't disappoint either.

You did nazi this surprise package coming did you...

The game looks fantastic, runs and scales well, and delivers on a wonderful B-movie supernatural experience. If you go in expecting that, you'll get what you paid for, and it will definitely give you your moneys worth. In shambling, stupefying, and groan inducing entertainment.


With the trilogy out, this now becomes something of a museum piece. The trilogy is now the place where all the cool kids are. This review will be held as a reference. But from now on, Sniper Nazi Zombie Army Trilogy is where people should be headed.

Verdict : It's good, but the Trilogy is here...

Well. Where to begin?
Ah yes.
Jesus Christ.
How this game isn't branded as 'Sniper Elite: 5000 for the Achievement' is beyond me. You want zombies? This game gives you zombies: thousands of zombies. And I'm not talking Left 4 Dead's hordes that cack-handedly slap you in the face in the hopes of making you feel bad, every single one of the shambling fascists is more than capable of dishing out a bucketload of damage before you're able to shoot or kick them away. And yes, this version of Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army comes with the ability to KICK. Thank God! A marked improvement over those awkward 'Oh God, it's right in front of me and slapping me with a torch, blindly noscope, blindly noscope!' moments from the previous instalments. I say instalments, since if an enemy was right in front of you in SE:V2, it turned into a frantic mess of you flipping your SMG out and randomly spraying.
Oh! That brings me to my next topic: The new weapons. Well, I say 'new' quite losely, since they were in the previous instalment of 'Hitler Forgot To Say The Lord's Prayer Before Playing With an Ouiji Board', but c'mon. What you're given is the set of DLC rifles from V2, including the good old fashioned Lee Enfield and M1 Carbine (My personal favourite), and a few other new toys including the MP44 and Webley revolver. I'm not saying they're bad weapons; By all means, use whatever you like since one rifle headshot puts down any regular shuffler with absolute ease.
But just know this: You miss a headshot, and that guy's probably gonna get right back up and smack you in the face with whatever is in his hand.
Among the hordes of normal mindless grunts, you do have a few guys to keep you on your toes.
There's undead Snipers in gasmasks, capable of leaping from perch to perch through a sheer disregard of the laws of physics.
There's Fire Gods, which are 8 foot tall burning men that supercharge other zombies if you don't stop them, and those zombies run at you like they're on fire (They really are. What a nice bloke, setting his mates on fire.)
There's everybody's favourite exploding runners, who run at you whilst screaming demonic noises that are actually marginally disturbing.
And then, of course, there's your old pal: The giant, trench-coated MG42 operator that takes a good few headshots to take down.
They never said this would be easy to play. One wrong move, you're surrounded. One missed shot, he's already back on his feet. One wasted grenade, you've only removed 2 out of the 16 that are shambling at you. But with steady nerves, you can get through it.
Of course, your nerves are unlikely to be steady when you discover the darker secrets of the game. Hitler is long gone from the Fuhrerbunker, so that's just one less problem. You wouldn't really have had time to kill him, anyway: You'll probably be discovering disturbing easter eggs, keeping an eye out behind you, and all while everything is probably plotting how to rip you to shreds. Mannequins can move themselves. Lights can change in an instant. Things can wake up without warning. And Sieges can happen at any time.
Yet, through all this, it's probably one of the best looking zombie games I've played for a while. Sure, the amount of mist and whatnot can play havoc with lesser PCs, so make sure you can run Sniper Elite V2 on at least medium before you give this one a go. Yes, there are probably more frightening zombie games. Yes, there might be games with a better co-op experience (EVERYBODY is going to be stealing grenades from each other in this one, so just get there first). And yes, there are DEFINITELY better zombie games available.
But for £10.00, this is probably one of the best available for a tenner and does come with an air of fear you just don't see in games anymore.
And what was that you just saw shifting down that hall?
Better save that grenade, it's probably just another shuffler.

✓Great game to play with friends in co op.
✓Interesting story.
✓Good graphics.
✓Good sound effects.

✖ Hard to join any game unless you have friends to play.
✖ Some maps in single player is harder on easy difficulty.

Over all if you like co op games and have some to play this is a great game.If you are fan of sniper elite and co op games you should buy this.

This stand-alone DLC to Sniper Elite:V2 is suprisingly entertaining, especially when played with friends with friendly fire enabled. While admittedy not L4D-caliber in terms of co-op, this game is still thoroughly enjoyable, particularly if you picked it up during one of the many times Steam has offered it on sale.
