Reviews

"I greatly enjoyed the unending masses of aliens which I splattered all over the landscape with pistol, machine gun, and flame thrower."

- GamersWanted - 92% (full review)

"[The] developers decided to "remix" this game and release a hybrid expansion/follow-up. The result is Shadowgrounds Survivor, and it's every bit as good as the first release. Survivor, the extended remix of Shadowgrounds, is a must-have for any fans of action-horror."

- Worthplaying - 89% (full review)

"FrozenByte definitely has a winner on its hand. If you have the hankering to play an action top down shooter that looks good and has addictive gameplay, look no further than Shadowgrounds: Survivor."

- GamingTrend - 89% (full review)

"I don't know of any other top-down shooters for the PC which are done as well, or look as good or cost $20. You also receive the tools to completely mod the game and create additional maps. Generally my rule is that if I feel like replaying a game right after I finish it, that's a good enough indication of its worth, and Survivor is definitely worth it."
