Dead Nation Review

 

When Dead Nation shuffled onto my review schedule, my first thought was: “Another day, another zombie game, yadda yadda yadda.” A visit to the Dead Nation website did little to convince me that there was anything different about this downloadable...

Dead Nation is a zombie game that abandons the third dimension in favor of providing a more arcadey experience. The game looks and plays great, providing lots of action as well as crap-your-pants moments when hordes of zombies suddenly race onto the...

Another zombie game? Wait, this one is actually good. I think it's safe to say this generation was all about the zombies. Every game you can imagine has had some...

Beautiful visuals ; Fun gameplay ; Co-op mode is a blast ; Great presentation

No voice chat online (for now)

I think it’s safe to say this generation was all about the zombies. Every game you can imagine has had some type of mode or gameplay feature that has you fighting against the zombie hoard. Not all of them were good, but some stick out as decent if not...

The easiest way to describeDead Nation is as Smash TV, set during the zombie apocalypse. Part of what makes it so easy is that it isn't actually true.

This is not a singleplayer game and it's not a twitch shooter. Dead Nation is a long, somewhat overpriced co-op dungeon crawler, and within that extremely narrow niche, it's a good time. Do not play it alone, as its solo campaign is one of the single...

The originality of releasing a game based of zombie survival has long passed and developers really have to bring something original to the table these days to make their mark on the genre. The developer, Housemarque, released the very well reviewed...

Mind-Numbingly Simple, in a Good Way

Gorgeous graphics and lighting create great atmosphere

Lack of any save feature and uneven checkpoints makes playing some levels more of a chore than fun

Where Dead Nation really begins to shine is the graphics. Played from a top-down isometric view, the visuals really push the envelope, and while the overall story may leave something to be desired, the real atmosphere is created by the environments...

Engrossing gameplay and rich environments make Dead Nation an enjoyable romp through the zombie apocalypse.

Dark, oppressive atmosphere ; Richly detailed environments ; Powerful, upgradable arsenal

Doesn't actively encourage replay ; Price point is a bit high

For all of its murderous thrills, Dead Nation doesn't exactly demand to be replayed. You can strive to get hit less often, thus preserving your multiplier and upping your score, or you can take on a tougher challenge at a higher difficulty level. Yet...

The zombie craze / infatuation is one genre that just will not go away. Sure, “zombies” have been around for a long, long time, but the past 10 years or so has resulted in an unprecedented flood of zombie-based media including comics, movies, and...

Dead Nation is a remarkable game and easily one of the best PSN titles available. The game stands shoulder to shoulder with the Left 4 Dead series as the pinnacle titles of the zombie-game genre. If you even remotely enjoy slaying zombies, do not...

Does another top-down zombie shooter sound like fun? Well, Dead Nation might be right for you.

In spite of the moments where I lost my mind over a cheap death, I enjoyed Dead Nation. It's a thing of beauty to sit in a chokepoint and tear apart an army of zombies or watch a maxed out landmine go off several times and clear out dozens of roamers....

It may not bring anything new or exciting to the table, but the game packs a solid amount of content in a competent package. At the end of the day, though, Dead Nation is not quite a must-play experience, just a satisfying and enjoyable one.

Two things used to be quite common at one time in the industry: zombies and top-down adventures. Zombies continue to hang on thanks to their inclusion in so many multiplayer FPSs and of course, they'll always be around in the venerable Resident Evil...
