For those unfamiliar, World War Z is based on the novel and 2013 blockbuster movie starring Brad Pitt as his character must do everything in his power to keep his family safe, in a world quickly plunged by vicious zombies. The game received mostly positive reviews for its fun gameplay loop, however, it can be very repetitive.
