There’s very little to be said for the audio as there’s nothing really special here. The sound design of the guns is satisfying especially when you land some brutal shots that dismember zombies. As for the soundtrack, it’s practically non-existent.
There’s so much diversity on offer, as each episode takes you on a tour across different parts of the world. There’s never a dull moment when exploring the environment despite the story being rather pedestrian. There is the odd moment where the visuals take a massive nosedive and look like something from a last-gen title, but these moments are so rare that it doesn’t ruin the overall look of the game.
If you’ve played Left 4 Dead or even just any FPS title then you’ll find the mechanics and controls of World War Z to be as straightforward as straightforward can be. It’s very easy to jump into and get going, requiring very little in terms of a tutorial.
While one of the bigger selling points of World War Z is the online matchmaking with its PvPvZ modes, it’s this aspect that’s the most disappointing. It’s actually the main co-op campaign that will entice players to come back for more. Each chapter and episode can be tackled in a variety of ways with a range of different classes and weapon customisation options. Despite the story itself being completely forgettable but fun, it’s still enormously repetitive.
Although there are some very basic achievements, which just require you to finish the missions and the campaign, there are also some fun challenging ones that add an extra level to the overall game. There are also a few achievements that encourage players to rank up further in the game and continue building up each character class, adding more longevity to the game for achievement hunters.
