    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.

    State of Decay 2 is a nice game and it looks good, but it has a considerable amount of errors that take away much of its brightness. It is nice that the events that happen within your game are a consequence of the actions of each player, given that feeling that each of their actions is unrepeatable. Spending most of the game looking for resources in coolers, kitchens, farms and other places, is annoying and saps much of the fun that can be as the game becomes a slow and repetitive activity.

    State of Decay 2 has a lot to love, but it’s overwhelmed by legacy issues and a slew of all-new ones that came along for the co-op ride.

    State of Decay 2 is an interesting "post zombie apocalypse life simulator" that forces the player to manage every aspect of a survivor's life. It's too bad that its story isn't very interesting. And what to say about those bugs: there are just so many of them... With better production values, State of Decay could have been a truly special game.

    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.

    The amount of negative reviews is downright BS. Everyone holding this 30 dollar game to the standards of full priced AAA studios. Ridiculous.The amount of negative reviews is downright BS. Everyone holding this 30 dollar game to the standards of full priced AAA studios. Ridiculous. SoD2 improved on every aspect of its predecessor. Period.

    Its not perfect for sure but critics and users scoring it lower than the first game are just ignorant.

Last of us não tem a mesma complexidade e sensação de apocalipse que esse jogo possui. Graficos estão otimo, jogabilidade excelente e fluida, bem melhro que tlou por exemplo, mas o que os molequinhos haters do xbox vão falar é a história. É um jogo de video game, quer história vai ler um livro, ver um filme, ou jogar os fmvs que a sony chama de jogo. Que geração maldita que temos hoje em dia, Excelente jogo; Expand

There are still some bugs but there isI found this game very enjoyable now that most of the bugs have been fixed after a 20 gigabyte update. There are still some bugs but there is a stuck? Feature that you can use if the game bugs. It seem like undead . could make something great here. Now to why i gave it an 8. The mission design it just kind of gets repetitive, not that its horrible i just think this game could benefit from a bit of variety in mission design. All in all solid game now that they have fixed the bugs. Good job undead labs. Also people this game isn't about story. Expand

It is more challenging than theState of Decay 2 has a single player that in my experience on my X1X has been fine. No game breaking bugs. It is more challenging than the first. The graphics are better than the first. Is it a graphics showcase? Of course not, but its better. Building a community is a challenge with regular citizens each with personality traits and strengths and weaknesses. Someone may be a great gardiner making growing food easier but they may be difficult to get along with making the community morale suffer. Choices like banishing this person could be tough as they may come back in a hostile group of survivors for revenge.
    Blood plague is new and adds sickness to anyone bitten by a red eyed Zombie. Needing medical staff, chemicals, plague samples to craft a cure. But the cure isn't a dime a dozen so its a tough choice when used. If you enjoyed the first State of Decay you will enjoy the second.
    But the co op, the single most asked for thing for a sequel is a broken mess. Normally I wont ding a game for MP being bad this hard but this was THE thing in terms of sales points for SoD2 and its a big FAIL. There is simply no excuse for releasing any game this broken in terms of MP when MP is the selling point over its predecessor. So in my opinion and personal experience 20 hours in, the game in SP is fine. But the co op that my buddies and I couldn't wait for is a slap in the face to fans.

I dont care for graphics too much but when we're on the XBONE and a game is looking like a PS1 port... we have problems. Now as far as gameplay goes- its glitches all over the place. This game is a complete embarrassment of the Xbox franchise. I played this, Halo 5, and Sea of Thieves. After that combination of complete dog **** i went out and purchased a Ps4. I can no longer support a library of games this mediocre. This was an abymal mess of a game. DO NOT PLAY IT. It is truly a 0. Expand
