This is arguably one of the best shooters I’ve played on a mobile platform. For some reason, World War Z reminds me of the classic Half Life series of games albeit played on a portable device.
So in this game you have your typical Earth having been ravaged by zombies where the protagonist has to venture out for some reason (in this case to save his family) and slay a whole horde of zombies by gunning them down with a whole slew of different guns and lots of gory action.
Disregard that. Nobody actually pays attention to story lines.
World War Z immediately submerges users in a super realistic and equally apocalyptic scenario where adrenaline levels are pumped up and ready for action. The game starts off slow, allowing for users to grasp the concept of game play, which is especially handy given that it’s rather hard to be an accurate shooter on the small iOS device screens.
Solid sound effects accompany the game, which itself is a real feast for the eyes.
Then you have the magnificent cut scenes that make you feel like you’re watching an actual movie unfold.
Levels expand on and on, where eventually upgrades will have to be necessary to progress. I supposed the only annoyance I have would be how hard it is to farm gold yet upgrades are so expensive. But no problem, this can easily be solved with in-app purchases.
Before long you’ll find yourself raging at the fact that you’ve completed the game when you still pine for more action.
This one is a definite must to get.
Would I Buy Again:Definitely
Learning Curve:A little complex given that it's a first person shooter
Who Is It For:FPS fans
What I Like:The excellent graphics and depth of gameplay
What I Don't Like:Game ends too quickly
Final Statement:Defintiely one of the best mobile shooters I've played
