Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army

This looks kind of cool. On sale until the end of the month:

They even have a 4-pack available that breaks down to $9/person. Nevermind I still have dozens of games on my PC that I haven't touched since Xmas. :lol: This one might be worth a try at the next LAN that I'm still trying to pin down a date/time for.

Sounds interesting. Sniping + nazi zombies == potential good time. I'm in for $9 if a few others are as well.

Previous entries in the game have so-so reviews, but I bet they didn't have nazi zombies.

4-pack purchased. Game doesn't unlock until tomorrow so it won't be playable until then. Will pass out the gifts thru Steam as people log in - don't wanna accidentally send to the wrong person.

OK, I just played this for about a half hour real quick tonight, and I think this has the potential to be a fuckload of fun.

It's basically L4D set in WW2 Germany. You are a survivor outfitted with weaponry of that era: old school sniper rifles, Thompson submachine guns, Luger and Colt pistols, etc. The awesome part is the sniping - whenever you pull off a nice shot everything slows down and the camera follows the bullet through the air and you get an x-ray of the damage your shot does to your target. You get to watch their nose cave in as the bullet tears open their skull - hilarious.

I will say the controls felt really odd to me. It's your standard 3rd-person shooter, but for some reason everything felt real sluggish. It might be my vid card (a problem I plan on remedying before the LAN), but I had to turn the settings way down to get it somewhat smooth and playable. Even then, everything felt real laggy. So I'm not sure if that's going to be a problem - hopefully not.

But I can see us having some fun with this given the 4-player co-op. I think it'll be $9 well spent.

A trailer to give you an idea:

Ok, this does looks like a shitload of fun! What's better than killing Zombies? Killing zombies as a NAZI lol.

One question...any melee weapons?

At this point the only melee I've seen thus far is a "kick" option if you start getting overrun. Would be cool if you got shit like shovels or could use your weapons as melee if you run out of ammo.

Wow, they ramp that shit up for multiplayer. I hadn't seen the "big guy" and he looked like a pain in the ass.

This will be fun.
