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.
Summary: If you like zombies, enjoy first-person shooters, own a PC and have $19.99, there’s not much else that beats the deal presented in this tidy little package. I highly recommend “Killing Floor” to any interested gamer.
Pros: -Capable of running on old or less-powerful computers., -Shop and perk elements are an awesome addition to the game., -The Steam achievements are challenging, but not impossible and extend the replay value even more., -Cheap introductory price; $19.99 MSRP via Steam., -Always populated online., -Not much lag, even during matches hosted by people with slower connections., -Guns feel and sound powerful., -Soundtrack fits the genre perfectly.
Cons: -Visuals are a bit outdated, even if not bad.
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.
Conclusion: All things considered, Killing Floor is worth the meager $20 investment by any fan that enjoys nightmarish, co-op shooters. The offered fare might be rather basic and straightforward, but to be fair, Killing Floor never pretended to offer anything else. What is more, with the included SDK, fans are sure to take this game to all new levels of enjoyment, not to mention TripWire’s proven dedication to their games.
Pros: Wild, zombiefied action; modest rig requirements; very moddable and comes with a SDK.
Cons: Repetitive gameplay; only five official maps; various minor flaws.
Excerpt: Whilst Killing Floor will no doubt be penned as a Left 4 Dead clone it should actually be the other way round because Killing Floor was originally an Unreal Tournament Mod back in 2007 and in one way the games style of play is more attune to CounterStrike if truth be told - with all its pros and cons.
