Killing Floor

It’s a co-op survival horror game. Up to 6 players in online co-op mode, or just you, on your own, playing the Solo mode. The aim – cleanse each area of zombies, in waves, until you get to the last one. The Big One. The Patriarch. Then exterminate him, too. Actually, they aren’t "zombies". They are the left-over "specimens" from a cheap and dirty government program to clone soldier-monsters. The basic ones will just munch on your arm and try to disembowel you. The bigger ones were the first ones they tried arming. Nothing much. Just a chainsaw or a blade for starters. They had just got on to the chain gun and rockets when the government tried to secretly shut down their secret program. But, in the typical way these things go, the program didn’t want to be shut down. The specimens got loose. No-one was left alive to turn off the specimen-cloning equipment. And now they are running amok. Well, some of them are running amok. Others are shambling amok or even jumping amok, but you get the idea. The police were sent in, but that wasn’t even a challenge for the specimens. The first army units hadn’t been warned what to expect. The screams of its got a bloody chainsaw!" over the radios probably didn’t do much for morale, as whole units were chewed up. Quite literally, in some cases, of course. And now, there is just you. And a few friends. The few survivors from the first police and army units thrown in. Of course, you can’t tell anyone anything, because that would be a breach of the Official Secrets Act 1911, 1920, 1989. And that would be a disciplinary offense. So just get in there and do your bit for Queen and Country. Zombies. Lots of them. Big ones, little ones. Armed and Dangerous. JUST MAKE THEM ALL GO AWAY! [Tripwire]

If you’ve enjoyed zombie games of the past and want to see a different take on what cooperative zombie horror games should be like, then I think you will enjoy Killing Floor too.88AtomicGamer
I adore this game it has maintained a level of fun gameplay in groups. I will forever recommend this game to people because a night with friends drinking and playing this could never be replicated.90RoyBrewer
For the price, fun and challenging enough. Except for Patriarch. [July 2009]84Pelit (Finland)
Muito bem otimizado e divertido, diversas fases e uma infinidade de mods desenvolvidos pela comunidade.100Bruninho1997
Having spent many hours playing Killing Floor, I am delighted to report that it’s really, really enjoyable – sometimes even more so than the amazing Left 4 Dead.80AceGamez
The best Coop Shooter out there. It’s so much fun to play this with friends and it’s challenging unlike many other coop Shooters.90ImperialYama
Despite the rough edges, Killing Floor can be considered a resounding success.80Boomtown
Gran juego, y su banda sonora es una joya, me hubiera encantado que agregasen para correr, pero es entretenido.80Diegochocho
Killing Floor is a strong game in its own right. The core gameplay is rock solid and has lasting replayability. The variety and detail of weapons are outstanding.80Gamer Limit
Such a good and grand game, brings back old memories from 2009 and 2010 such nostalgia.100LightPoth

This former Unreal Tournament 2004 mod is more fun than it has any right to be.75GameSpot
A decent little title, and a testament to just how far you can take your hobby if you but try.75GameWatcher
Solid, workman-like zombie slaughter, with a strong hint of amateur mod-making love and enthusiasm. [Aug 2009, p.72]72PC Gamer UK
Quotation forthcoming.70Meristation
There are only a handful of official maps to play , although each one is substantial in size. [Aug 2009, p.77]69PC Zone UK
A simple bloodsport, and only a rudimentary level-up system affords any sense of progression. [Aug 2009, p.106]60Edge Magazine
Ironically enough, this might be one to keep your eye on as the modding community gets a hold of it. Despite the flaws, this game has enough potential to end up standing out.55Hardcore Gamer
When it comes to co-op zombie shooters this is somewhere in the middle. The 2nd one is better tho.70Chubac
