    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.
  7. 40
    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

    My most played game on PS4, so I'm not going to rate it low :)
    But seriously, this is a fantastic game and the developers really make an effort of doing regular events and adding stuff to the game. Since I started playing (around July 17), two bosses have been added, 8 new maps, a few new weapons and modes.
    And the gameplay itself is very satisfying and can be tweaked to your liking and level with the difficulty and length filters.
    So I can highly recommend this game to everyone who likes FPS, a bit of gore and great gameplay:)

    - Distinct maps and zeds with even more difference every update or event that is going on ( Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Winter, Halloween, ... )
    - Many different perks to level up and specialize, especially good in teams as it is at its core still a co-op team shooter
    - One of the best gore systems out there ( still after years )

    Still have to say: You either like it or not, its still a bit of a nieche game.

    Never played the first Killing Floor, but i never say no to a good tactical coop experience.

    To be honest, i bought this game to ease my wait for Left 4 Dead 3. Unfortunatly, in many key aspects, KF2 is the opposite to that game. While good (certainly fantastic to everyone who know exactly what to expect), it lack L4D tention, atmosphere, slow paced exploration moments, and most important, its tactical yet simple gameplay. All in all, in particular when it comes to pacing, i would compare it to CoD zombie modes, which i'm not a fan of.

    Like i said, Killing Floor 2 is still a good game. The controls are responsive, the visuals great, the framerate is surprisingly stable (at least on PS4 Pro) and the amount of enemies and gore on screen provide many epic moments. If it had more maps, modes and the the ability to play singleplayer with bots, i would give KF2 a higher score.

    It's good, but not great.

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
