    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.

The story definitely does fall a little by the wayside, which is a shame as the game is taking place in a universe with so much detail and lore to fill the story.
    Overall it is a very solid game and a lot of fun, but definitely not perfect.

    Game has potential to be super fun, gameplay is good, and make you able to play the same levels over and over.
    Combatsystem is easy to learn
    Game has potential to be super fun, gameplay is good, and make you able to play the same levels over and over.
    Combatsystem is easy to learn hard to master, and with time you find a deeper level of combat play once you played a class long enough.
    Sadly The developers have chosen to implement some absolutely disasterous mobs into the game, destroying the the otherwise epic fun this game is offering, theese are mobs that takes away your ability to play, and your success of a group especially on the higher difficulties are 100% boiled down to how lucky or unlucky you are with the spawning of theese mobs.
    95% of games i lost on high difficulty has been due to theese ridicilous mobs, a very unsatisfying way to loose, and leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth.
    -2 point for each fun destroying disabler mob.
    -1 for unblockable attacks.
    Other than that it could have been a truly epic game, that runs very smoothly at my system atleast.
