Excerpt: Killing Floor was originally an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod that was later released in 2009 by Tripwire Interactive for download on PC. Killing Floor continued its initial success by releasing additional DLC and bonus content over last few years, and now, you can purchase Killing Floor Gold Edition containing the game, all previously released DLC and a new female character as part of a milestone commemorating the millionth copy of the game having sold.
Conclusion: Priced at around Ł15, Killing Floor is just about worth its weight. The extra content and support provided by Tripwire, as well as the modding community will help add extra value to that. Those of you who are happy with L4D might enjoy a change of pace with this title, then again you may not. There really is very ‘little’ to this game in terms of depth, and it still feels a little bit like a mod.
Excerpt: The Good : Nearly endless zombie-killin’ action The Bad : Also mindless and pointless The Ugly : And highly repetitive Comparisons between Killing Floor and Left 4 Dead are inevitable. Both FPS games featuring zombie hoards even have several types of similar zombies in common: the ordinary zombie, the fat zombie who spews toxic gunk, the weapon-wielding zombie.

Excerpt: You know, there was a point where I was very seriously considering a 3 out of 10. Even now, I could happily pen a sizeable list of Things I Hate About Killing Floor , and mount a convincing argument as to why they completely ruin any semblance of an entertaining game.
Summary: To be honest, I wasn’t really entirely interested in Killing Floor before its release. I know a handful of people considered it an anticipated title, but I was hesitant. I only really became interested in it when my Left 4 Dead CAL clan all decided to purchase it. I gained a little bit more interest when I realized that this was actually the retail release of the UT mod of the same name. I love a good mods-to-riches story, who doesn’t?
