Low production values, somewhat buggy at times and quite honestly there are other games that do this trope better. Recommend to avoid. Uninstalling and banishing it to my poop category on Steam.

I didn't saw a game at the same time buggy and heavy to handle for standard rigs in many years, and i thought there wouldn't be more games like that, but i seem to be wrong...

Even at the lowest graphic's details, that makes the game somewhat near of a bunch of pixels if not worse, this game can still suck half of my computer's CPU... and i play far more heavier games, that my PC handle a lot better than this.

For the in game issue, there isn't much to complain about: the reload function is one of the most interesting things i found here, but, finding other weapons (other than the pistol) from the floating space above killed zombies (over the scrap, another interesting thing of this game, which is the resource of building towers and stuff), doesn't sound really right for me... i mean, a zombie that drops a bazooka?

Next, the game is insanely hard even on normal difficult, because of the bugs i'm gonna explain, which need you to be costantly concentrated on it.
If you are on a higher height than the zombies, you can't aim your gun down to shoot them.
The camera is in third person, very badly modeled, since you can't see from upper and lower the incoming zombies, expecially when the camera zooms, and you have very few chance to react on time because of that.
Every level also have the same encounters, so just knowing what's next is enough to win the game, if you got problems on progressing.
And, to end, there isn't a way to heal yourself from taken damage, as i seen.

I had more fun playing Dead Horde instead of this. This MUST have a lot of fixes, because, as the game is now, it's worse than an Early Access.

I love top-down alien/zombie shooters even the not so good ones but this one is bad. An MP oriented shooter, only its unplayable.

Here's the problems:
Your basic weapon is a pistol, weak and slow. For every weapon pick up you gain two clip with it, after that you drop back to pistol. There is no weapon select even if you take that one extra weapon. The two clip is a joke especially for the railgun and the rocket launcher as these clips consist of 1 shot!.

The reload minigame is a nice feature but not in a game where millions of zombies running towards you.

The shop system is broken as time not stops not even in the SP campaign. The upgrades are even more fun as you have to go deeper in the shop's menu in real time. For your hard earned money (scrap-metal) the bought turrets last only a few seconds on normal difficulty (haven't tried harder).

The screen is too small. The charging type enemies are nearly impossible to avoid as you don't have that small reaction. The poison bomb fatty's poison area is annoyingly high and unavoidable.
The best thing that there are two enemies that can and will ATTACK FROM OUTSIDE THE SCREEN (at least on 16: 9 resolution) giving you no chance to do anything. The spitters and the megaannoying pullers are just terrible. The best happens when 2 pullers come, one pulls you out and the second pulls from the first, than the first pulls from the second and they start ping-ponging with me and i cannot do a f@@@@ing thing.

Sure it's an MP game but they were nice enough to put in an SP campaign THAT HAS 6 LEVELS! These: 1 is a training defense mission, easy / 2 you are invincible and must drive a car and kill zombies / 3 you must defense a cabin (!) that you abandon when a helicopter comes. If you wait enough and don't take the copter, you can see the bosses too and dies very fast. 4 The only mission that is good, must go through a sewer. 5 Again invincible in the copter shooting helpless zombies down there. 6 Defense mission so hard had to try it 6 times on easy difficulty. The winning screen is just an offense. Seems like a new level but it's not, it's the end.

For a real MP top-down shooter choose Nation Red, for SP choose Nation Red (yes, that's SP is very good though there is no real campaign) or Dead Horde.

Not bad. A great concept and fun, but some of the details make it really frustrating, at least in the single player mode. After your inevitable death, you have to start at the very beginning of the level, often going through (awkwardly slow) cutscenes again. You can't hold more than one weapon at once, and when you do have a decent weapon, it's use it or lose it. You can't switch back to your infinite-ammo pistol to save the better gun for something later. I gave up on one of the single player missions because I'm convinced it's not supposed to be possible.

Still, the game manages to be fun, and the multiplayer probably has a lot to offer when you're playing with four friends.
