Zombie Army 4: Dead War releases today on PS4, Xbox One and PC and if you are wondering how well the reviews went then look no further. The game’s review embargo dropped last night which meant media with access to the game could share their thoughts and praises about Rebellion Development’s newest zombie Nazi shooter. So far, things are looking quite positive with higher 7s and even some 8s across gaming sites.

And, of course, even playing on your own, you could make Dead War part of a healthy nutritious diet. Much like that packet of whatever snack food you’ve been imagining this whole time, you don’t actually need to eat the whole thing at once. You could enjoy a sensible amount of its beautifully realised high-definition ultraviolence, put it down, come back later, have a few more nibbles. But you won’t, will you? You’ll always have another, and another, until you feel bloated and dizzy and a little bit sick. And fair play. January’s over now, which means we all can shed the pretence of our New Year’s resolutions and give in to the hungry zombie within. – Read the full review

IGN – 7/10
Zombie Army 4: Dead War feels largely familiar amid the horde of Left 4 Dead-style co-op shooters, but it isn’t without its clever mechanical touches and spins on the oldest of video game cliches: killing Nazi zombies. Between its varied and campy story campaign and an amusing horde mode, there are plenty of opportunities for harrowing teamwork and gory, disgusting X-ray kills. The weapon progression system doesn’t give a lot of reasons to branch out, though, so the pull of its replayability isn’t as strong as it could be. – Read the full review
