Game contains nudity

Game is very fun, excellent sniping opportunities. Has quite a few glitches and it has nudity. There is one inappropriate statue in Village of the Dead, not too bad. But once you get to The Gates of Hell in the second stage there are MANY nude statues and a giant painting in the room you grab the relic in that has a bunch of nude people in it as well. So overall the game is quite fun in coop mode, but it would be so much better if it didn't have the nudity.

Though it's yet another game where you're gunning for Nazi zombies, this third-person shooter manages to distinguish itself by letting you take them out from a distance. In Zombie Army Trilogy, you play as your choice of eight Allied soldiers who have to survive when Hitler raises an army of the undead in hopes of winning World War II. But because the first two of this collection's three episodes were made as add-ons for the game Sniper Elite V2, this doesn't just have you using pistols, shotguns, and machine guns. You can also use sniper rifles to pick off the undead from afar. That's highly recommended, since while the undead are mostly slow moving, especially when they're just skeletons, there's always a lot of them, and they'll swarm from all sides given the chance.

But it's also a good idea to rely on your sniper rifle because the game's controls are not ideal. Admittedly, this is partially because the Switch's native controllers aren't built for this kind of thing -- doubly so when you play this in handheld mode -- though the game's own code is also to be blame. That's why you're advised to pick off as many zombies as you can from a distance, when you can take your time (relatively speaking) and line up your shots. Well, unless you're up against one of the more creative and frightening types, such as the fast-running suicide bombers who strike Christ-like poses before going "POP!" If you play this co-op with some pals instead of on your own, that helps in eliminating the masses of undead too. Either way, Zombie Army Trilogy is a challenging and engaging chance to once again stop Hitler and his undead friends, if you're willing to put up with a few gameplay issues.
