The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding. Expand

    A fantastic game with more than competitive graphics. Whilst slightly repetitive, it is undeniably enjoyable with teammates and the more friends you play with the more fun you will have within the game.

    Repetitive but fun, a hellish challenge or a relaxing, spectacular gore bath depending on how you approach it.

    Killing Floor 2 is a joy to play and while it is made far better with friends, it does fail to deliver a worthwhile single player experience. Call up your squad of friends however, and Killing Floor 2 is a masterpiece of chaos as you cut your way through wave after wave of the toughest zeds as they struggle to overwhelm you. Killing Floor 2 is a bloody mess, and it’s a bloody good one too.

    While it's a shame Tripwire didn't improve enemy variety or add a new co-operative mode, Killing Floor 2 has some of the most satisfying shooting around as the old formula holds up well thanks to high levels of polish, good perk variety, and solid maps.

    For the first few hours KF2 really holds your attention with dynamic gameplay and constant gore-fest. But soon it turns stale, as there’s only one mode (plus a variation of it in which other players can join as monsters), there’s only so many types of enemies, plus, maps don’t offer sufficient variety. So every battle basically follows the same scenario. If Killing Floor 2 was a cheap indie game, it would’ve been forgivable, but at $30 price point players really have a right to expect more.

    There are not many games as cruel and bloody as Killing Floor 2. Taking down waves of huge monsters was never as satisfying as in Killing Floor 2, but the gameplay is not as solid as it should be.
  7. 60
    While pretty light on new features (particularly ones that could have contributed to its co-operative nature), Killing Floor 2 is still an unrelenting deluge of mindless, entertaining violence.

A team game, a large selection of maps and modes, 10 perks (and besides, everyone is unique in both the gameplay and the role in the game. And if in the beginning there were doubts about this, then after long hours in the game, they disappeared). In 2020 we get: a full-fledged product in which there is a lot of content. The model for supporting the game for the next time is very interesting, most likely 20-21 will be the last years of the "active life of the game". The best game in its genre. Looking forward to hearing from L4D3? Expand

The repeatability is a little bit of a miss. You see every possible enemy within a game and cover most bosses in just an hour or so of playtime. However, the mechanics and gun dynamics are fantastic and keep you coming back for more. Expand

    The graphic and the sound department are okay: the zed's animations are beautiful, the way the blood stains cover up the entire map, the interaction with the surroundings (think that a siren can destroy the light bulbs with her scream, making a zone dark and forcing you to use the flashlight). I've my complaints about the voice commands, which are not as fun to hear as they were in Killing Floor, but I hope that the community and the workshop will be able to remedy to what the developers didn't feel was worth a further improvement.

    ...So far, so good.

    Things start going worse when we open the option sub-menu: very few options, missing controls from KF1, as you can't switch to "last weapon" anymore, there is a whole page dedicated to the controller, with a fancy picture of an xbox 360 controller. But that's all fine! I want to pretend that this is all okay, that the controller picture is there to make the thing pretty, that they removed controls to..... I don't know! But another reason other than "console users can't map too many buttons so let's just remove functions"!

    Then you jump in a game, and the game turns out to be blatantly console friendly; if you get hit from behind or from a side, you instantly turn in the direction the hit came from: go figure how fun is to play the berserker, or even how this can help you getting killed on HoE: Flesh Pound in front of you, stupid clot behind, 180°spin *dead*.
    I spend my 3 hours zerking, as I used to do, turns out that it's not as easy as it was to head-shot a zed, and it looks like it's more luck than skill, as I still haven't found the right angle to decapitate a clot with a katana every time I want.
    But hey, am I forgetting something? As the fact that you can sprint (!?!) now? Sprinting? That's right folks! And almost no zeds can outrun you.
    Also the difficulty is much lower than it was in Killing Floor, and while this isn't necessarily bad, if you think that it's easy without perks, I imagine that having a bunch of extra fancy abilities would make the game even easier.
    As a final note, now we have eight (8) and only eight vocal commands: we can't Thank a mate (It's triggered automatically each time a mate helps you. Cute to hear, but this way you don't understand who's actually grateful for the help and who isn't), we can't Insult our mates, we can't give directions other than Follow Me. You must be wondering why... Well... the vocal commands are now accessible through a wheel that shows up when we hit the bound key. Yep. Hooray console friendly games!

    I was very hyped for Killing Floor 2, I craved it for a long time, I couldn't wait to slay zeds with hundreds of new fancy animations, HD graphic and stuff, but now that I've tried this release, I can't hide you feel such a terrible nostalgia of Killing Floor, I want to open the app 1250, load up KF-Bedlam, pick up Foster and a nice perk, and slay zeds on Hell on Earth as we've always meant to do.

    Final Thoughts:
    Killing Floor 2 is a game that shows the full potential of the Unreal Engine 3, unfortunately, it isn't as flowing and catchy as Killing Floor used to be.

    If you need ratings:

    Graphic: 8/10
    Sound: 5/10
    Longevity: 5/10
    Gameplay: 3/10

    Overall: 5/10

    Buy it if you are a Call of Duty fan seeking for something new and more challenging, skip it if you want a Killing Floor successor: this is nothing like Killing Floor 1.

For an beginner this game is completely confusing for how to start a private game with a friend. After a half hour of searching I don't get it. I randomly joined into a group of people. After the first wave the connection broke from dont know where and the game crashed. If I try to browse the lobby the game freezes and I have to delete the process in another desktop. So after a completely wasted hour I delete the game and never will get back to it. Wasted money. Expand
