August 17, 1977
Scattered groups of zombies infiltrate remote Midwestern towns. Incapable of using tools or weapons, the invaders are resisted until they retreat back into the desert. Special elimination posses are set up to hunt down any of the surviving undead. Six weeks after the squads started their search-and-destroy mission, the last known zombie was shot and killed.

Over thirty years had passed when a truck driver traveling down a desolate Arizona road plows into a wall of undead. Before the driver's phone signal went dead, he reported some were carrying guns... They're back and now they are hunting us.

Bought this on sale, it's a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend this game if you love shooter type games,zombie hoards and weapon upgrades/other upgrades. I'm not sure if I would say it's worth it at full price but it's a really entertaining game that I plan on playing more of.

Excellent for playing with your friends online. The game concept is simple but the weapons, perks, scenarios, and bosses lend enough variety to make it interesting.

Nation Red is a top down arcade style Zombie shooter. It’s good mindless fun and immersed me for a lot longer than I expected it to (I used to come home from work during my hour lunch break just so I could play this game). Good graphics, great gameplay. I strongly recommend it.

It's crimsonland with slightly better graphics. It's fun, but definitely not the top down Killing Floor I was promised. Exp resets between games and there's zero incremental progression.
No thanks.

Killing Floor in a top down view. Excellent game and it plays well on my laptop without a graphic card. Achievements were hard but I like them because they made you play differently (learn more about the game).

Rating-9.5 / 10
Achievements-Hard but mostly fair.

Not only is Nation Red my favorite game, It offers a wealth of game play. From a brainless shooter game, to a hardcore tactical game, NR has it. Its a game that takes time to master, and as soon as you think you mastered it, theres more. From hours playing solo, to a epic coop game, the fun never ends. If you dont have this game, stop reading and go buy it now. If you have this game, what are you waiting for, go bloody the fences.

Thx

I can't fault this game for support, the devs are on the Steam forums daily checking for problems or keeping us up-to-date with what new features/changes are coming with the upcoming patch. It is the best supported indie game I've seen on the Steam forums!

The game is a top-down zombie shooter and fast-paced play but lots of fun too. I've put a lot of hours into this game and it never gets boring, the constant updates which include 4 player co-op, weapon upgrades, perk upgrades and new achievements. Keep the game fresh.

Nation Red is a really amazing zombie shooter game in third person perspective.

Pros:
+ nice design, different maps / locations
+ playable in singleplayer, coop, multiplayer
+ different modes (e. g. defending a barricade, survival, king oft he hill, free play)
+ convenient music, good sound
+ different survivors with special abilities
+ all options possible (graphic, audio and so on)
+ selectable level of difficulty
+ you can turn friendly fire on/off, collect exp together or alone
+ a ton of zombies and massive growing waves
+ many different weapons which you get by killing the zombies
+ health kits, short-term skills (also by killing zombies)
+ levelsystem (you can choose an ability with every new level)
+ players can resurrect teammates at any time
+ 140 achievements to hunt, leaderboards
+ IT MAKES FUN!

Cons:
- no story (in Singleplayer you have missions, but no profound story)

This game is for people who really enjoy using many different weapons, having action all the time, killing non stop zombies without thinking much and without a break. So hm I love the game. lol

Original price: 8,99 €
Summersale: 2,24 €
