    FatShark has done a fantastic job of taking their first game and improving on every single aspect. The recurring theme of offering players a variety of tools, characters and enemies to face leads to a crescendo of unique moments that are all entirely player driven. While the difficulty spikes can be frustrating, part of the fun in Vermintide 2 is being against the odds and prevailing.

    Hop into a match, lop off a few heads, gain experience and gear, and next time, lop off stouter heads while carrying a couple of grims. Vermintide 2 is exemplary of what the genre can become, and it's an especially great reason to grab some friends, sit down, and slay a few thousand foes.

    In the end, if you fancy going for better loot, fight more powerful enemies, and unlock all kinds of cool items, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 seems like a dream come true. Even with the bugs and the slightly unbalanced system, it’s a game that still tricks me somehow into playing just one more map.

    Vermintide 2 is a stylish, engrossing avenue into the horror and hilarity of the Warhammer Fantasy universe. Despite some small hiccups which you won’t shake, this game is sure to get you and your friends working as a team to survive the onslaught of the Skaven and Chaos hordes. With a variety of playstyles and in game tactics, this experience proves it is far more than a Left 4 Dead clone, and left me eager to jump back into this game.

    If I were to compare Vermintide II to other titles, I would choose Left 4 Dead and Diablo, with Dark Messiah of Might and Magic coming in a close third place due to how combat feels. The game will eventually wear you down with its repetitiveness, because replaying scenarios is embedded in its design, but before it happens you’ll spend dozens of fun hours with it. [05/2018, p.42]

    An extremely satisfying coop combat game with a very frustrating balance and loot system.

    Even without microtransactions, loot boxes manage to spoil another potentially classic game, although the core combat and co-op atmosphere still shine through.

    Everything a sequel should be.

    Vermintide 1 was a good game that had it's flaws and this improves on all of the weak points. Combat is smoother, progression is easier to understand, and A LOT more customization in play style with the addition of careers. Even the enemy types grew by having the rats team up with the Northlanders to add to the bestiary.

    The only flaw is the campaign is way to short for how awesome this game is, but if you are willing to dive into the challenges this game has then it will offer plenty of content and good times spent with friends murdering your way through hordes of rats and Chaos Northlanders

I had to essentially turn the majority of the graphical features off, not because they didn't work but because it felt like I was looking through a window that someone had vomited on while riding a roller coaster. Once you get past that part of the game you'll find some clunky mess that really just isn't that fun to play. The game forces you along without any story and basically its a hunt for 5 books that dictate your experience and gear (which really isn't much of anything) and then you rinse and repeat. I was really confused why i wasn't having fun when i played this and I ended up roping some friends into trying it and they confirmed it as well. This is just lacking something that I cant quite but my finger on but it just "feels" bad.... Expand
