Review: World War Z is 2019’s best game so far

New Jersey based game developer Saber Interactive has completely defied industry expectations by producing the finest video game so far in 2019. World War Z is an incredibly fun throwback to the Left 4 Dead franchise, allowing players to massacre hordes of zombies with their friends. Amazingly, the game launched with a $39.99 price tag.

The bargain-priced game somehow manages to offer more thrills and chills than this year’s Resident Evil. Quite the compliment, considering the Resident Evil 2 remake is probably the second best game of the year. World War Z is simply more entertaining than any full-priced game released so far this year.

The four player co-op campaign mode is a blast. Mowing down waves of the undead with your three comrades, as you attempt to escape to the safe zone, makes for some truly captivating gameplay. At times, the number of zombies onscreen can be quite overwhelming.

Saber Interactive didn’t skimp on the gore, either. The game features fully destructive enemies, with more lost limbs and exploding heads than you can shake a stick at. Deploying an explosive weapon against a horde of zombies results in a cascade of limbs and zombie parts erupting from the crowd.

Unlike Left 4 Dead, World War Z features a third-person point of view. Players battle against the undead in multiple stages across four real-world locations: New York, Jerusalem, Tokyo, and Moscow.  Each location features a different set of survivor characters to play as.

Players can choose between six different classes: Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Fixer, Medic, Slasher, and Exterminator. Each class has its own distinct advantage. Players can unlock new perks for each class as they progress throughout the game.

World War Z also features a wide variety of weapons. The more a player uses a specific weapon, the more opportunity they have to customize it. The customization of weapons can significantly improve their firepower against zombies.

The game has already received two free updates providing a new Tokyo stage, a new special infected zombie, the ability to host private lobbies, and the option to increase the field of view. The developers say future updates will include new game modes, weapons, and character customization options. If Saber Interactive ever decides to add a Left 4 Dead inspired “versus” mode to their online multiplayer, we will update their score to a perfect 10.
