Note: I had given this game a negative review after playing it for about 5 or 6 hours initially.
I feel this game is hit or miss as a whole; it is not for everyone. It's really important to know what kind of zombie game this is before going in a game and expecting fast paced zombie killing. It is entirely a mix of fast paced zombie shooters mixed with the occasional waiting around to hold out.
If you are the type of player who enjoy constant shoot'em ups not having to worry about an ammo count and slashing your way through thousands of zombies... then go play Left 4 Dead. This game is not for you.
However, if you enjoy games that require teamwork, conserving ammo, scavenging for supplies and using the limited resources around you then you should give this game a shot.
I have found that the community in this game is alarmingly small, but the players have been surprisingly nice. The few that do play regularly will go out of their way to help newer players to expand and enlarge the community with more people.
Every gun and melee in the game has a certain feel to it, and I guarantee there will be at least one that can cater to your liking. The zombies lack a little diversity when it comes to the aesthetics, but have pretty unique ways of moving around and sneaking up on the survivors making gameplay pretty interesting in the long run. PvP mode is available which creates an even more intense and horror-filled experience added to the gameplay.
And hey, there's free DLC coming with this game soon... so that's always a plus.
Paying $20 for this game still does seem a little pricey to me, the amount of content offered seems to fall a little short of the price. Maybe buy the game when it goes on sale. Contagion really favors a more strategic crowd when it comes to fighting zombies, includes mature players and pretty decent graphics for a HL2 modification overall.
