It had been a while since I played a zombie shooter. Although the game was free for review purposes, its $4.99 price for consumers is a surprise given the low cost and large amount of content. The price is well worth it especially since no more money needs to be spent. Out of curiosity, I looked at the game on iTunes and was taken aback at the cost to buy credits and gold bars. With all the features, including two special abilities, the ability to upgrade your character as well as weapons, and high attention to detail, it's a fantastic game to play. The replay value and various game modes kept me coming back for more. I do caution on the violence, gore, and sound effects, however. It is not for the faint of heart. Nevertheless you may want to play the game with the lights on in the room.

IGN Italia (Feb 12, 2015)
Dead Effect bada al sodo e propone livelli molto lineari, fatti di stanze e corridoi, con pochissimo spazio per l’esplorazione e con un gameplay decisamente vecchio stile, nel quale contano solo il sangue freddo di fronte alle orde di zombi, la mira (ma non sempre gli headshot vanno a segno) e la forza d’urto delle armi. Il lavoro fatto sull’ambientazione è tutt’altro che disprezzabile per gli amanti del genere (chi ha detto Alien: Isolation?) e anche a livello grafico, considerando il tipo di produzione, non ci si può lamentare. Gli zombi sono presenti in quantità enorme e anche come arsenale siamo messi piuttosto bene (c’è persino una specie di arco sci-fi). Il difetto principale di Dead Effect è più che altro la grande ripetitività che si incontra in questi livelli fin troppo simili tra loro, senza impennate o invenzioni di sorta che possano risollevare il gioco da una classica (seppur solida e divertente) routine fatta di zombi, corridoi e porte da sbloccare.

Vandal Online (Jan 12, 2015)
Dead Effect es ahora una versión más completa, ajustada y técnicamente pulida, que la que pudimos disfrutar hace algo más de un año en sistemas Android e iOS. Aprovecha sabiamente su cambio de control, añade contenido en forma de armas, niveles y modos de juego y saca partido -aunque sea mínimamente- a la potencia de la nueva plataforma en la que se estrena. Pese a que tiene una herencia y lacra free-to-play que no termina de cuajar -el sistema de desbloqueo de armas, en base a lingotes de oros y demás-, y no destaca en casi ningún apartado con respecto a sus competidores, Dead Effect, sigue resultando ciertamente entretenido y desenfadado. Y eso es bueno.

Hey Poor Player (Oct 07, 2016)
It’s a decent game that, while nothing revolutionary, will satisfy those with a sci-fi/shooter itch. Imagine a lighter, more streamlined version of Doom 3, with just a sprinkle of Dead Space, and you have an idea of what you’re getting into. And for such a small price, it’s one of the cheapest thrills Steam has to offer.

Dead Effect si užijete jako béčkovou akční jednohubku, která je hloupá, ale v tom v podstatě tkví její kouzlo. Bezvýhradně doporučit se nedá. Zavrhnout ale také určitě ne. A tak nezbývá, než najít odpovědět na otázku, zda je namíchaná na míru zrovna vám.

Банальный и незатейливый зомби-боевик, вобравший в себя уйму фантастических штампов последних лет.

For eight bucks you could find hundreds of games on Steam that are better, and several of them are almost certainly about shooting zombies in space, leaving Dead Effect as one of the many games that only exists for genre enthusiasts who must play everything; everyone else can safely click “Not Interested” and miss nothing.
