    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.

    ok people, let me put it like this State of Decay 2 is the best game I've played and in a lot people perspective it is a ok game, but eitherok people, let me put it like this State of Decay 2 is the best game I've played and in a lot people perspective it is a ok game, but either way you can't say it sucks by just watching game. People who thinks it is way to hardcore is because they can't handle that I respect that but don't say it sucks because it's hard to play you should've done research. With that you can't say it's trash because you play PS4 because you just think PS4 is way superior, well that's your opinion same for PC players. I have seen game play of God of War and Detroit become humans and I believe the game play is great and my brother play God of War and told me it is great. A lot of people know about the new Spider man Ps4 game rant that is going on and I think people are salty because they can't play a childhood game I would too but I won't say the game sucks, I say it looks like top tier game, And the funny part I'm only 11 years old and I'm more mature. In summary just grow up. Expand

    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

    I liked the first game was hoping they would improve on it and add online gameplay , well they added on-line gameplay but made it some kind of boredom endurance simulation . I'm very disappointed in the game I was really looking forward to it and it just doesn't deliver any entertainment value at all

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
