In this multiplayer game, you can collaborate with up to three other survivors to combat a zombie apocalypse that has transformed the city into an icy wasteland.

Should I play After the Fall® in 2024?

The good

The game seems to have a lot of potential, with some players enjoying its arcade VR shooter experience and praising its gunplay and progression system. Some players also appreciate the game’s social aspects, such as playing with friends.

The bad

Unfortunately, the game is plagued by numerous issues, including frequent crashes, long loading screens, disconnections, and poor matchmaking. Additionally, the game’s progression system has been criticized for being grindy, and some players have reported issues with weapons and attachments.


It’s a shame that a game with so much potential is marred by these issues. Unless Vertigo Games addresses these problems, it’s hard to recommend this game. Players who value a smooth gaming experience may want to look elsewhere. However, for those who are willing to overlook these flaws and enjoy the game’s arcade shooter gameplay, there might still be some fun to be had. Just be prepared for a bumpy ride and don’t expect any major updates or patches to fix these issues. Unless the developers start fixing these problems, I would not recommend playing this game in 2024 without significant changes.
