If you haven’t gotten your fill of shooting zombies — and really, who has? — then now’s the perfect time to jump into Nexon Europe’s mash-up title Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, which just went into open beta on Steam. Whew, that’s a mouthful.

CSN:Z features “unpredictable wild zombies and new game modes,” according to a press release and will launch in early October. Really, though, how many different game modes do you need? There’s the one where you kill zombies, the one where you kill more zombies, and the one where you… kill even more zombies?

If you’re skeptical about this (clearly high-quality) mod, you’re not alone: As of this writing, the absurdly brief teaser video above has the dubious distinction of being a rare YouTube video with more thumbs-downs than thumbs-up. It’s not quite as, uh, “popular” as this abomination, but hey… give it time.

So, what do you think? Does CSI:SVU, I mean, CSN:Z look like something you’ll want to try out or avoid like the (zombie) plague?

  1. better grab CS 1.6 with a player made Zombie Mod tha is around for more than 10 years or play CSS with the same mod…

    to be honest, they just took a mod that was already there, got the CS 1.6 license and release it – just a bunch of crap

  2. CSO2 or nothing they ahve cso since 2009 or something and they have made cso 2 in 2012 and they brin cso 1 to us and no cso 2? here u can play cso 1 coz no one in china playns anymore have funn whit it… no ty. they brin good games here only when they are dead or to old but never when they are at theyr peak like blade and soul is when Blade and soul will be dead there they will be here play this, but it to late it will be outaded y other mmos and no onw will like them as mutch as whed like to play them now… bad chices spiting in our faces in 2009 now u cand close that pice of shit cso down and give us blade and soul and cso2

    • dunno why you talk about cso 1 and 2 (i assume you mean Counter Strike Online?). Those are just sligthly changed versions of the original Counter Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike Source.

      So if you really want the Counter Strike game, then go to steam and buy CS:GO for 10bucks and go for it. The only stuff you can buy for real money are skins and they are sold by other players.

      They even have a complete division system in it for matchmaking ranked games.

  3. ”unpredictable wild zombies” If ”unpredictable” means ”Always just running at you after they see you”, then yes, they’re unpredictable. New gamemodes don’t do any good, if the core gameplay isn’t fun. I usually say ”beta is beta” for these kind of things, but this is just bad, even for a beta. This should be an alpha. Better yet, this shouldn’t have been made.
