What Gamespot Users have to say about Space Pirates and Zombies

  • User Rating 8.5

    Despite its simplification of space and obvious sources of inspiration, SPAZ is a sophisticated strategy/RPG title.

    INTRO: The runaway success of the Space Rangers franchise had inspired the creation of more than a few similar games. Space Pirates and Zombies, or "SPAZ", to use the official acronym of the game, ...

    A game that completely took my by surprise. I have spent countless nights sacrificing sleep because of this game!

    Wow! Where to begin? First off, I was caught completely by surprise, seeing this game announced on a small forum some time ago. It was sold as a hybrid strategy / space rpg, and I figured I had nothin...

    What do you get after a hot threesome where Space Rangers 2, Darkstar One and GalCiv II hookup? S.P.A.Z!

    Space Pirates and Zombies is a wonderful blend of a top-down space sim, RPG, and shooter.. very similar to Space Rangers 2. It has quite a number of RPG-like elements to the gameplay, where upgrading...

    Great 'old school' Sci Fi / Zombies shoot 'em up with space ships

    SPAZ keeps it simple by sticking to 2D, a top down view, of the battlefield. It's a very addictive game, because you need to get your hands on new tech be to be able to win encounters. But you can alw...

    SPaZ brings a challenging, and long lasting game for a cheap price.

    First let me start by saying I haven't beaten this game yet. 34 hours play time according to Steam and I've barely completed 10% of the galaxy which currently I have set to 150 of a possible 300 solar...

    SPAZ is old school space shooting, combined with every modern gameplay element that can possibly be combined with it.

    Rated on December 12, 2011 by LtReviews

    ies, or SPAZ, is a unique combination of genres, as much as it is a unique combination of elements in the title. You are Pirates in Space who fight Zombies. But this odd combination doesn't do jus...

    The future of space shooters has finally arrived.

    Rated on January 30, 2012 by Devil_Man_X

    This game was such a surprise for me. At release I immediately wrote the game off simply because it had "zombies" in the title. I am quite honestly just tired of the lazy way that zombies are getting ...

    Saw this on Steam for $3.99, and thought "what the heck". I never even heard of this game until it popped up on a Steam advertisement. I quickly turned off the ad, as I always do, yet I caught a gl...

    A whole lot of fun in a simple package.

    Rated on October 28, 2013 by Brendissimo35

    SPAZ reminds me why Escape Velocity excited me when I was a kid. It's an all out blast of a top down space shooter, and has a cool sense of humor as well. There are a solid variety of balanced ship t...
