    N.Y.Zombies 2 is exactly what the series needed as it expands its ideas beyond the tiny rooms it used to inhabit and places them in a much larger, and far more terrifying real world.

    With decent visuals, a great cohesiveness of thematics, and a good amount of content and replayability elements, N.Y.Zombies 2 is worth checking out for any horror fans.

    Overall, this game is a lot of fun for fans of zombie themed first-person shooter games. Unfortunately, it is so difficult that you get frustrated and wish for a med pack to help you survive, which you can only really get by paying real cash for.

    Despite intriguing new elements like free-roam, skill trees, and co-op multiplayer, there are a number of annoyances in this sequel that make us long for the simplicity of the original.

    N.Y. Zombies 2 is another example where more is not necessarily more. Adding FPS controls, and movement did add more issues than it added gameplay enhancements. Paired with dodgy collision detection, and uneven level design I have to conclude that Terminator 2 is still the big exception to the rule of sequels.

    N.Y. Zombies 2 is a standard zombie-shooting game that suffers from a couple of narrative and gameplay issues.
