Killing Floor has to be the poor man's left 4 dead. It has a basic story behind it but no real development behind the characters or the plot aside from a short description provided in the core maps. The Characters are little more then generic reskins with a different biography typed up for each one. However the descriptions have a sense of dry British wit about it that I find amusing. For a story junkie like myself I find that killing floor completely misses the mark with the lack of a story mode. But come on... Your not going to expect much of a story after dropping 15 bucks on a team based zombie slaying game? NO! You expect mindless violence, swarms of drooling, puss dripping carcuses and scientific abominations after your flesh and whatever weapons you can get your hands on to blow their bloody heads off!
This is exactaly what you get. This game at the start takes off the gloves when you decide to stop being a pussy and go into normal mode. If you go alone, you better know the map your on and have a fully loaded clip. The monsters still even come after you after you blow their heads off! The clots will swarm all over you and hold you in place as a monstrosity with a chainsaw for an arm will gut you like a cornish game hen. Undead tarts that are invisible will try to rape you! The boomer's British and even more morbidly obese and even less hygienic cosuin will puke on you! And at the end of it all you have a showdown with the mad scientist that started this mess. A scientist so badass that he grafted a rocket launcher, minigun and a flame thrower onto ONE ARM! But... He loses some bad ass points do to the fact that he cloaks and runs like a bitch whenever you start to get him on the ropes... That and call for another swarm of minions as he licks his wounds.
About the weapons, you can eather find weapons laying around the map or you can buy them at the trader between each wave. Depending on the difficulty level you have one minuet to fifteen seconds to find the trader's hide out, shop, and get out to face the next wave of experiments. Which forces you to locate where the trader is setting up shop and fight off the hungry hoard at the same time. There is a nice selection of weapons. The standard pistols that can be duel whealed, shot guns, automadic firearms, pipe bombs, melee weapons such as reliable and noisy chainsaw and the *CHOP!* katana. All are fine choices and all depend on your play style and choice. Which leads into the purks. Purks are leveled up by using weapons in the purk set. For example, the bezerker you need to get up close and personal with the experiments and CHOP them to bits in order to become a better bezerker but you can still have the sharp shooter purk activated for the round. Purks can offer resistances to different enemies, attacks, offer discounts on certen weapons,boost damage dealt and reload time.
This game FORCES you to play well with others, offers up a lot of choices for taking on the hoard and for the price. Can't be beat if you have some spare cash give this game a go if your into slaying hoards of zombies.
