ReviewsEdit

Combat Zone was met with mixed reviews. Reviewers cited the gameplay as both a pro and a con, with the gameplay being described as "solid, but stale." A lack of variety was a common criticism. Reviewers praised the gameplay when played in short bursts, however. 

IGN

"Combat Zone isn't a bad game, it's just not a good one. While it presents fun and frantic online gameplay, it wears thin after about 45 minutes of gameplay. The different modes mask this staleness of gameplay, but it only works temporarily. I can't recommend you pick this one up at the full $14.99, but if you ever catch it on sale for $10.99 or below, it's not bad. With a few more varied game modes and some DLC to give us new weapons and maps, this would be a lot better." OVERALL SCORE: 6.5/10

GAMESPOT

"Combat Zone is a flop on several fronts, including the gameplay one. Bugs litter most maps and make it hard to figure out what's going on. Despite a fun premise, stale gameplay takes over and you find yourself angry at the game itself, rather than the enemy who just killed you. All is not bad, however. Intelligent map design and some fun moments mean this game has its moments, they're just really, really few and far between." OVERALL SCORE: 3/10

GAMETRAILERS

"Combining interesting gameplay with an online-focused premise, Combat Zone succeeds in a few areas, but falls into the average to bad area more often. While the gameplay is fun, it likely won't hold your attention, even with the variety of modes. Still, things manage to pick up in the Hold Up mode, which is a more cooperative-based experience, and pretty darn fun. Combat Zone isn't about great gameplay or amazing graphics, but it can be fun at times. I'd get it during XBLA's summer sale." OVERALL SCORE: 5/10

212Edit

212 received largely average reviews, with critics citing the new arenas as a positive addition, but the new skins as "largely useless, but sort of neat." The free price point was largely praised, however.
