    Besides, polish is overrated. Consider Dawn of the Dead. Both of them. Zack “Justice League” Snyder’s update is polished, contemporary, and appropriately dumb. But Romero’s original is raw, uneven, and still powerful. They each have their place, but only one of them is timeless. If you want the fullest and most thorough expression of zombie mythology in a movie, you watch Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. If you want the fullest and most thorough expression of zombie mythology in a game, you play Undead Labs’ State of Decay 2.

    Microsoft and Undead Studios succeeded in delivering a good Xbox-exclusive game. The coop and loot elements are well done with smooth gameplay and upgrading mechanic. Unfortunately, the huge amount of bugs sometimes cause it to be unplayable. Apparently, due to the latest game patches, the bugs are being fixed quickly.

    State of Decay 2 is a "bigger, better and more badass" sequel, with plenty of missions and activities to engage. Playing it in co-op is a good addition, but in the long run the game loses part of its charm. The graphics are outdated and far from modern game standards.

    In State of Decay 2 we got additions that we didn’t even need, while the mechanics that called for changes (such as fighting) remained without any major interference. The game shoves in multiplayer too much, which degrades some parts of the single-player into a digital chore. Eventually, you may not even appreciate, that the game is bigger than the first one.

    The purchase is basically only worthwhile if you have not played the predecessor yet...This lack of innovation is all the more disappointing for me because the developers of Undead Labs had originally planned their game as a zombie MMO, where we were to fight with hundreds of players on a map together for survival. And now, instead, they deliver a mediocre co-op mode.

    The problem with State of Decay 2 is that it fails to go steps beyond what the first game achieved. It is a given that fans of State of Decay will surely have a good time, especially when playing with friends (and when some of the technical issues will be addressed), but overall Undead Labs’ new game fails to impress.

    State of Decay 2 looks like a totally broken remake of the original game.

    Last of us does not have the same complexity and sense of apocalypse that this game has. Graphics are great, excellent and fluid gameplay

O jogo está muito melhor do que quando foi lançado, só não leva 10 por conta dos pequenos bugs que ainda não foram corrigidos e por não ter uma opção de troca rápida de arma para uma arma secundária (sidearm)!

I watched a review about this game that kind of summed up everything: this game seems to be half of many game styles. Half arcade... half coop... half survival... and so on.
    Since the beginning of the game, I felt like it lacks the "feeling" a survival game should bring. I felt like I am limited by the game story and can't (or shouldn't) be free to do whatever I want to survive, as I do in other survival games.
    The multiplayer is garbage... if you are the host, your friends' purpose is just to serve you. Not to mention that you can't find other players around. To the point: you won't feel that chill down your spine when you hear a shot nearby, thinking "someone is around!". You don't have to worry if you accidentally shoot your teammate, since no friendly fire is available... I mean, these are things that give an immersion in the game.
    Looting just takes too long... like seriously? That makes the game boring and for some people like me, not a pleasure to play.

    I understand that some people might like this game... and I don't think it is bad at all... but overrated by many for sure.

It actually looks worse than the first but has none of the depth, character or gameplay. To say the graphics are xbox 360 standard is an insult to the 360.
    I can only imagine that they got rid of the people who lovingly crafted the original because this is terrible. It doesn't matter how many patches or updates thi thing gets it will still be rubbish so deserves neither your time or your money. I'm glad I tried it out on xbox game pass first. Very disappointing.

    En papel se ve interesante, lo compre con mucho hype , dado que el primero me gusto mucho, pero lastimosamente este no ofrece evolucion algunaEn papel se ve interesante, lo compre con mucho hype , dado que el primero me gusto mucho, pero lastimosamente este no ofrece evolucion alguna sobre el primero en lineas generales no hay un cambio muy sensible en las mecanicas de juego, movilidad de los personajes, dinamismo en los combates, en un tema personal no recomiendo la compra ni siquiera en ofertas, hace un rato lo termine desinstalando, pense que con los parches que lanzaron hubiera mejorado algo, pero nuevamente nada de nada, este es uno de los casos donde mucho ruido y pocas nueces, hazte un favor, ve y compra un juego que realmente sea divertido e interesante, este lo tendras de adorno en tu biblioteca ya que yo como muchos esperabamos el juego tras haber jugado el primero y con el tiempo de desarrollo se esperaria un juego con muchas mejoras, pero pues no pasa eso aqui, Este juego no es desastroso, sino lo siguiente, es que no se ha inventado palabra para describir algo tan tremendamente mal ejecutado, si quisieras buscarle algo bueno, podrias tardarte un muy buen rato y eso es que si le encuentras, es una lastima, esperemos que un desarrollador logre tomar esta idea y hacerla bien o al menos algo decente porque MS , sinceramente ha desperdiciado mucho en esto, , si lo compras buscalo cuando tenga algo de 60% o mas en descuento, mas de eso no vale la pena, puedes bajar una "demo" Expand
