    Gadgets 360 says: "All said and done, State of Decay 2 is a great addition to the library of any Xbox One or Windows 10 PC gamer. It might sound derivative on paper, but multiple elements come together to make a game thats well worth your time."

  • Review: State of Decay 2 - Destructoid

    9 days ago - By N4G

    From Destructoid: "Let me introduce you to The Refugees. They're a hardy bunch, ten survivors who banded together in an abandoned strip mall. Every member of their post-apocalyptic community brings a little something different to the table. Oscar, or Grouch as he likes to be called, fashions himself as a lawful sheriff, quick to lend aid to other pockets of humanity and always prepared to dish out justice. Terri is a bit of a loner; a former goth teen who's knows her way around a building's plumbing system."

  • State of Decay 2 review - The Walking Retread | Critical Hit

    9 days ago - By N4G

    State of Decay 2 isnt really about the zombies. Sure, the small towns youre trying to scavenge your way through are filled with hordes of the undead, and theyre its raison d'etre but its a game about survival. Its less about the lopping off of limbs, perfect headshots and gruesome finishing moves though theyre all present. Its all about learning how to stay alive in the face of an apocalypse.

  • State of Decay 2 Review | BacklogCritic

    9 days ago - By N4G

    BacklogCritic: "State of Decay 2 seems to follow in the footsteps of Sea of Thieves. Its a generally OK game but might not hold the mass audiences attention for long. People who love the game will absolutely love it, but I can see it dropping off just in the same way SOT did. Whether Microsoft continues to support it in the form of a games as a service model, which we anticipate they will do with Sea of Thieves also, it may have some legs. This is definitely another case for making use of the GamePass and seeing if its worth picking up of staying subbed."

    State of Decay 2's survival RPG struggle against zombies is fun thanks to strong combat and fear of permanent death but repetitive and buggy, especially in co-op.

  • State of Decay 2 Review - It's Fun but Bug-Ridden and Poorly Optimised | AusGamers

    9 days ago - By N4G

    "The most disappointing thing about State of Decay 2 isnt that its too easy or limited in the base building sense, but with the many performance issues, bugs, and technical problems that plague the release far worse than any Plague Heart could ever hope to achieve. In its current state, State of Decay 2 is best played and only recommended for PC - where the uncapped frame-rate means a smooth experience on a high-end rig. On the Xbox One X, even though the HDR implementation is often impressive, the jerkiness, stuttering, and janky animation all add-up to an experience that needed several...

  • State of Decay 2 Review - Rough, Yet Fun The Walking Dead Simulator

    9 days ago - By N4G

    State of Decay 2 is every bit as fun and rough as the first game was in 2013. It feels like a game that would have massively benefited from additional resources during development given its technical issues, but even so, its core remains unique and fun to play, especially with friends.

    Where's Our State Of Decay 2 Review?

    9 days ago - By GameInformer

    The review embargo for State of Decay 2 is up, but I'm not quite ready to provide my final evaluation of the game. It's a huge game, with three playable maps and a complex web of interconnected systems to work through. I'm not going to give a score at this time, but I can share some of my overall impressions. Much like its predecessor , it's an ambitious game hamstrung by technical issues.
    The game's biggest addition is the introduction of co-op, with up to four players working together online. One player acts as a host, while the others join the cause and help battle zombies and ransack...

    State of Decay 2 review: A journey from disappointment to mindless addiction

    9 days ago - By Windows Central

    State of Decay 2 is here, but is this game a soulless husk, or something a little more infectious?
    I was a big fan of the original State of Decay , and happily revisited it when it was re-released for Xbox One a few years ago. While the game was clunky, suffered from engine troubles, and was middling in scope, it represented something genuinely unique in a genre that continues to be saturated.
    There are tons of prominent zombie games on the market. Whether they're open world affairs like Dead Rising or Dying Light, or something more competitive/co-operative like Day Z or Left 4 Dead, each...

  • State of Decay 2 Review

    9 days ago - By IGN

    State of Decay 2's open-world battle for survival against a zombie menace is the right kind of post-apocalyptic fun. It creates plenty of high-stakes moments, punctuated by the relative calm of foraging for supplies while always looking over your shoulder. It's a potent mixture for a while, until the combination of repetitive missions and annoying bugs eventually dulls the joy of squashing heads, even when your co-op entourage rolls deep.
    Just like in 2013's original State of Decay , in State of Decay 2 you can freely switch between randomly generated survivors in your post-apocalyptic...
