The 5 Best Zombie Games ever?!

What are the best zombie games ever to be released?

There’s a lot of them out there, so lets find the best Zombie Games ever to be made!

Yet to find that Zombie Game that hits the spot? I feel you. Don’t worry though, I have a list of solutions. I have to say, I’ve played a lot of them and can now report what I feel is the best Zombie games back to you. In no particular order, lets get into them!

Left 4 Dead 1 & 2

Left 4 Dead In-game Screenshot - One of the Best Zombie Games ever?!

Although these games are somewhat old and left 4 dead on consoles… yup, I said it. Valve really hit the spot with Left 4 Dead 1 and somehow made Left 4 Dead 2 just as good, if not better.

The aim is to get from point A (A safe room) to B (An escape) with as many of the starting survivors alive as possible. You are able to work your way through these maps creating carnage with your favourite guns and melee weapons. You can even use a frying pan!

It’s fair to say this game has aged well. If you don’t already own Left 4 Dead 1 or 2, you can buy it from G2A or get it even cheaper from Steam during the sales. Xbox one players can buy the game from the Xbox Live Store or play it through the backwards compatibility program.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Red Dead Undead Nightmares - Asbolutely classic Zombie Game

Another old-gen title makes the list! Part of me wishes I kept my Xbox 360 so I could revisit this game. Red Dead Undead Nightmare released as a Standalone DLC. The game still portrayed everything that Red Dead stood for. The only difference being the Undead. Undead Nightmare isn’t just a horde mode. It’s packed full of new weapons, zombified horses, new quests and a lot of Undead Brains.


The things I would do for an Undead Nightmare 2, With Red Dead Redemption set to release in Fall 2017. Would they revisit zombies? Unlikely. If people were to make it know, who knows what could happen.

The Last Of Us: Remastered


The Last OF Us Remastered - Best PS4 Zombie Game?

The Last Of Us hit the PS3 in 2013 and won multiple awards. It was even GamesRadar Game of The Year 2013. This Playstation exclusive may have been the best Zombie game to drop ever. If ever there was a reason to get a Playstation 4, this is it.

The game takes you on a journey with Joel and Ellie through a heavily infected United-States. Unlike other zombie games, there’s other survivors. Will they team up with you in aim to survive together? Will they heck! What version of America would be complete without Gun Crazed humans?

The Last of Us offers many different ways to play, you’re not always going to be going in loud. You’ll have to sneak around enemies that you’re not ready to take just yet while you are out scavenging. That’s not to say the game doesn’t provide enough drama and action, it really does. Just be prepared to get a complete Zombie survival experience.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare Zombies In Spaceland

I understand your hesitance. It’s a lot of money to pay for a Zombies only experience which only has 1 map. Should you opt to buy the game on ebay, it will only cost you £15. If you buy the Season Pass it will cost you another £40 but you’ll receive 4 more Zombie Maps and 16 more MP maps. For me, Call Of Duty has always been one of the Best Zombie Games out there.
Call Of Duty World At War was one of my first Zombie experiences. I feel Treyarch went a little overboard on the lore and easter eggs in Black Ops 3. Inifity Ward on the other hand have took the mode back to it’s roots. Meaning you can enjoy shooting Zombies. However only Zombies In Spaceland (Original Map) & Redwood Rave (Sabotage DLC 1) have been released. The complexity of the maps could increase as more are released.
Zombies In Spaceland takes place in a space themed amusement park set in the 80’s which has it’s very own DJ. Why is the DJ important? Infinity Ward have done a great job picking the soundtrack for the map, it really sets the mood. Don’t like a song? You can request the DJ changes it! There’s no shortage of legwarmers, bodysuits, neon and Boomboxes either.
Rave in the Redwoods is set sometime in the 1990’s at a Summer camp where a rave party took over. You’re spawned at Bear Lodge without any starting weapons but can pick up a Double sided axe if needed. The objective? The same as any other Call Of Duty Zombies experience, survive for as long as you can.
To add more, Zombies comes with Level progression and weapon customisation

State Of Decay 2

While State of Decay 2 is not yet released, it’s fair to say the first game was very fun. Although it did have some issue on the PC side of things. This game is set to release sometime in 2017 on both Xbox One and Windows 10. So all of you steam gamers, you may have to wait a while if you don’t want to use Windows DRM.

Despite the original State Of Decay being a technical mess. The game was beautiful and allowed you to follow many different survivors journeys. Where did they end? Buy the game and find out!

Undead Labs has promised a more stable open world environment for players. As well as support for up to 4 Player co-op. State of Decay 2 has the potential to be one of the best zombie games released on a Next-gen console.

Parting Thoughts:

It’s a shame that we’ve not had too many new zombie games that can stand their own against older titles such as Left 4 Dead and Undead Nightmare. While the graphics are improving, the actual gameplay, story lines and features don’t seem to be. All of the titles listed above will help you to get your zombie fix, until the next best zombie game comes a long.
