Zombie Army Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch is a good fit ultimately. No, this is not the most complex or revolutionary one on the market. At its core, in fact, it is very much a linear action title that wears its heart on its sleeve. There is plenty of bombastic action and very little substance. That is not a criticism, however. This is a game that knows what it is, and does it well. It is definitely a downgrade graphically, and it takes until the third chapter to really hit its stride in terms of complexity. However, the experience comes into its own as a co-op adventure with friends, and there is certainly an awfully lot of fun to be had here.
If you’ve never played Zombie Army Trilogy before and are wanting to pop some undead skulls, you should seriously consider picking this up. Especially if you have like-minded friends to play it with. Hell, even those who have already played it before might get some kicks out of it too. Let’s face it, how often do you get to shoot a zombified Hitler in the face while sitting on the loo? This is a great game, not compromised in any way, now playable absolutely anywhere. There’s little better than that.
The only reason you should buy this game is if you’re eager to go online and blast away at zombies with others. There are worse reasons to buy a game, though, so if that’s what you’re after — and that’s literally all you’re after — it may just be worth your time.
Zombie Army Trilogy is a solid co-op shooter with a fantastically pulpy set-up that does exactly what it sets out to, pitting you and up to three other players against an almost endless army of gloriously gory undead Nazis and letting you snipe, shotgun and kick every last one of them to pieces. It may be of somewhat limited appeal when played solo, but gather together a crew or join forces with randoms online and this one springs to life, providing countless hours of admirably straightforward skull-smashing fun.
Zombie Army Trilogy feels a little less essential than other ports to the Switch, however it is technically a good port of a decent game. Firing slow-motion x-ray shots consistently is always a thrill.
Zombie Army Trilogy is a nice collection of zombie shooters, with great atmosphere and a horror movie vibe, but the games didn't age so well and the 30 fps lock on Nintendo Switch feels a bit cumbersome when it comes to controls.
The repetitiveness of Zombie Army Trilogy is what holds it back in the end. By the time the first campaign is over players will have seen everything that Zombie Army Trilogy has to offer. The only interesting mechanic that the game sports is the X-Ray visual gimmick, but that has been seen in every Sniper Elite game to date. Zombie Army Trilogy is sadly nowhere near as fun as Zombie Army 4: Dead War. With no enticing new content or features, players who don't have a friend to play online with will probably lose interest in Zombie Army Trilogy fast.
