    Story, voice work, and animations are all still goofy, but throw in co-op multiplayer, better endgame content, and more reasons to replay it, and State of Decay 2 is the type of game with which certain players will fall in love. There's always something to do and in a classically sim style, it's hard to know when to stop. It's the most realistic zombie apocalypse simulation in the world and that's a beautiful thing.

    Too bad for a technical section that is at times really problematic, which fortunately cannot tarnish the excellent qualities of this sequel: a title that fans should play without hesitation.

    State of Decay 2 is the classic "more of the same" sequel which, however, thanks to some interesting innovations and a deep game formula, does not disappoint.

    There’s something about it that keeps you coming back, whether that’s the fun exploration or simply going on a quest to clear a few houses of infestations and then loot all the cupboards and drawers for goodies. But above all that it does nail the combat side, where headshots feel great as does getting up close with a machete. Gruesome and fun zombie-apocalypse survival, but also bug-ridden and poorly optimised.

    State of Decay was the high-water mark for open-world zombie survival, and while State of Decay 2 doesn’t top it thanks to the complete lack of storytelling, it’s a suitable upgrade. The hero system and three maps add replayability to the game, and Undead Labs’ history with the franchise suggests that they’ll get around to fixing many of these problems later. That said, it took them two years and a new platform to finally iron out the first State of Decay — let’s hope this one has a quicker turnaround time.

    Just like a new season of The Walking Dead, State of Decay 2 is just more of the same thing. Survival is exciting and makes you use your brain, but technically speaking State of Decay 2 is so bad, lots of fun gets lost.

    I was about to launch into another broken situation here, but I’m sure you get the point. The point is this: although there’s a very competent core loop and entertaining resource management sim somewhere within State of Decay 2, it’s really, really, broken. Unacceptably so. It frustrated me mightily to see a flash of a game I wanted to play, only to be immediately reminded that it’s not ready for release.

    Long story short I enjoyed my time in State of Decay 2 but knowing what i know now I think I would have been MUCH more satisfied if I waitedLong story short I enjoyed my time in State of Decay 2 but knowing what i know now I think I would have been MUCH more satisfied if I waited for the price to go down. To me this is about a $20.00 game in a perfect world. SoD 2 has some really fun and addicting mechanics but littered with physics glitches and bugs that by no means ruin the experience for me but they do tend to put a damper on the fun factor. The fact that there is a button committed to getting the player unstuck inside of walls, ladders, rocks, etc says it all. Just like the first one, SoD 2 looks good enough when there aren't any frame rate issues but if you have an Xbox one X this game might make you mad that you bought an X to begin with. For me it didn't play much better than the standard version. All in all though I guess I can't complain too much. At least it wasn't $59.99. All in all SoD 2 is a "between game releases game". The kind of game you play while you wait for another game to release. Truth be told I am more disappointed in Xbox than I am undead labs. Xbox aren't doing themselves any favors releasing exclusives like Sea of Thieves, and SoD 2. Sub-par experiences with superb/expensive hardware. Sad day to be an Xbox fan. I know it sounds like I should be giving this game a 3 or something but really it's just ok. If you loved the first one it's definitely worth your time. Expand
