    Though the 12 maps will become very well-known after spending hours in the game and repetition overall will start to creep in with players, some much sooner than others. It’s a small issue though in my eyes as the core gameplay here feels and looks great and it’s a game that can be enjoyed online with friends and the online community. The harder the difficulty and more waves adding, the crazier it gets. Players looking for a great arcade online shooting experience really need to look no further. Killing Floor 2 is here to please.

    Fans of horde modes in their shooters will find plenty of reasons to keep coming back to Killing Floor 2, although the experience is substantially better with a group of like-minded friends.

    While Killing Floor 2 doesn’t offer a lot of content, especially compared to many other multiplayer shooters out this year, at the end of the day, it’s still fun to shoot some Zeds with your friends. If you’re really looking for some quick, challenging multiplayer action, Killing Floor 2’s a pretty good place to start.

    Killing Floor 2 is a very good choice if you, and your friends, are a maniac with a weird lust to kill hordes of horrible monsters. Cooperative mod is challenging but not too varied while the competitive mod is funny but unbalanced. Know this and have fun.

    Old school shooters can still deliver, even if it's all only fun in small doses. Nice upgrade system, but lacks game modes.

    Tripwire Interactive brings the FPS back to its most primal level, creating a ludicrous arcade-style bloodbath in an era of deeper, more thoughtful narrative-driven shooters. That approach ultimately proves to be refreshing; while more variety would have pushed the game over the top into "truly great" territory, what Killing Floor 2 does offer is undeniably visceral entertainment. And while the wave-based action is plenty of fun on its own, the perks system kept me coming back to upgrade my character and face even deadlier threats.

    Taking a shallow sub-mode from other games, and presenting it in a no-frills manner, might make for a competent and reliable shooter, But Killing Floor 2 also fails to be anything more than a diversion from other, better shooters as a result. It's utterly useless in singleplayer, and for multiplayer hijinks there are more creative examples out there.

I picked it up on a whim since I like co-op shooters. I thought it would be decent - what I wasn't expecting was greatness. This game is just about flawless. 60 FPS even when there is chaos on screen, great variety of weapons to choose from, good number of maps, awesome gore, a variety of enemies to kill, you can play as the monsters and the periodic slow-mo shots are pretty cool. This game is like a spiritual successor to Left for Dead 2. This is the game Evolve should have been. I will be playing this game for a long time. If you like Horde mode type games, pick this up immediately. Expand

The game though does take a bit of time to get use to, like the aiming, map such and such but once you get a hang of it, you will easily spend hours on it. The graphic looks amazing. Overall, it is an awesome game to play with friends or team up with online players, and best of all you get to create and play on custom maps! Loving it and really enjoying it! Expand

It needsThe fact that this game engages me and I actually spend time playing it makes it one of the best games. But it needs more content. It needs more bosses. There should be more features. There needs to be more interesting characters and more outlandish costumes. Most of the characters aren't interesting. I think there should be customizable weapons. I hope they make a killing floor 3 with more features and improvements. Expand

For starters, this game hasKilling Floor 2 is a fun game; however, its lack of content and repetitiveness keeps it from achieving greatness. For starters, this game has no single-player campaign, unless you count the 10-minute tutorial mission that gets you acquainted with the game's mechanics. This forces users to play only online. Unfortunately, unless you have a party of at least 3 friends to play with you, Killing Floor is quite boring. Speaking of boring, this game is either insanely easy, or controller breakingly difficult. Until you get good at the game, it is just not fun. I would say pass on this one, but it was free for PS Plus, so if you need a game to play with friends, this should suffice. Expand

The co-op horde mode is gore-filled fun and challenging (esp. on higher difficulties), but gets repetitive after a while, even with lots of character leveling up to do. There is a good variety of expansive maps, although it lacks variety in zed type (there are maybe 5 types?) and especially bosses (there are only 2). Hopefully this will be addressed in some future expansion? I've yet to be able to drum up a VS game though - every time I try it just spins trying to find a match (and the worst part is at that point there is no way to back out of the match-finding screen short of restarting the game!). Is nobody on PS4 playing this mode? Expand

    I got it for free with PS Plus. If you like survival horde shooters, it's definitely worth the download, and I'd say $15-$20.

    Just for the sake of mindless zombie slaying with friends, and the mild entertainment of perk collecting, I can see myself getting a solid 20-30 hours out of this. I wouldn't recommend for the purely solo player. The gameplay, though responsive and polished, does get repetitive. You just run backwards shooting -- that's really all there is to it. Basic crowd control techniques, nothing more.

    The graphics are decent enough and there is a ton of cool weapons to try, but the differences between how each of them play is negligible.

    For a free game it is surprisingly good. If I'd bought it for full price I'd be upset. Half price would seem about fair if you aren't expecting it to be as good as a AAA zombie shooter.

    A better zombie horde shooter for a bargain price is Zombie Army Trilogy, IMO. The graphics are more dated but it is a more solid solo experience, as well as co-op, with more gameplay hours and funner shooting mechanics.

Instead I'm sold a 1st person co-op game that needs to be played online. I was taken for a sucker as this is by far the absolute worst game I have ever played in my life. I played less than 15 minutes and wish I could have those minutes back. This game SUCKS!!! Expand
