      I played the original State of Decay and that was a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse. State of Decay 2 is more of that with a multiplayer addition. The same survival mechanics of searching buildings for the five basics (food, materials, medicines, fuel and ammo) and using them to build your base is present. Of course, not all base sites can accommodate the same structures, so you will have to decide what is important to you. The addition of the plague hearts along with infestations was a bit nerve wracking, as the plague hearts can take a lot of damage. The ability to carry over your survivors as a "legacy" is also a nice touch. I have a couple of complaints that make the game frustrating. 1. Sometimes, a member of your community will have a "personal" quest. If you are using that character when the quest pops, you cannot switch characters without cancelling the mission. This is extremely frustrating as you will not be able to load up your "follower" with the correct inventory. (Think follower with a broken melee weapon. You won't be able to equip them with anything now.) 2. Sometimes your follower "disappears" during a quest. For some reason they won't get back in your vehicle. You might even seen them on the mini-map, but they will not be around. If you return to base, I've had a hard time finding the "lost" follower. Until you tell your first follower to "leave" you can't pick up another one. If you're on one of those personal quests, you can't switch off the character to the missing one to see where they are. This is very frustrating, because you really don't want to be out in the land all alone. 3. Sometimes when you are face to face with your follower (who has been missing, and sometimes they've not been missing) and you try to switch characters, the characters warp to another part of your base. So, now you will have to try to find the character that you were just using within your base in order to realease them and pick up a new follower. Overall, I like the game. I was a fan of the first, and I'm a fan of the second even with with annoying bugs. It has RPG elements along with a simplistic combat system. You can waste a lot of time with this game.

        We're glad to hear that you're enjoying outlasting the zeds in State of Decay 2. You'll be glad to know that the developers are listening to feedback and are hard at work implementing bug fixes, gameplay tune-ups, and quality of life improvements to the game. In fact, they just recently released a version 1.2 patch that may address some of your issues. For more information, go here: https://www.stateofdecay.com/patch-1-2-highlighted-changes/

      Flawed Zombie Slaying Bliss (Xbox One X)

      This sequel has a lot of great things going for it, but has some inherent flaws that consistently remove you from the otherwise amazing experience of thriving day by day in the zombie apocalypse. Starting out with the great things about this game: -Fun, fun, fun -Immersion -Challenging -Unpredictable AI This game is similar to its predecessor, but with improvements in terms of managing your base, your community's needs and wants, and the constant worry of contracting the deadly Blood Plague virus if you're consistently attacked by bloodied zombies, or infected zeds, who are far more aggressive in nature. The challenge gets bumped up as you collect more survivors, figure out how to keep all of them alive and happy, and hoping that you don't encounter some zed specialists on your next venture to retrieve daily necessities to keep it all going. You never know what is lurking around the corner in this game. Now for the cons, the negative aspects of the game that really break the immersion on “many” occasions, and inevitably causing you to reboot the game... -Buggy gameplay (getting stuck, interface disappearing, sidekick's whereabouts unknown -Unintuitive menu complexity and presentation -Graphics aren't any better than the original (enhanced) release -Music tends to cut out at random -Reboots needed to fix game-breaking errors While the game can be really fun and pull you into its amazing world of immersion, the quests do get repetitive after a long while, the music will sometimes just stop suddenly, the contextual menu system that has you managing your base is overwhelming at first, and the worst part of it all is after a good boss fight (a.k.a. the Juggernaut), your whole interface will just inexplicably disappear, preventing menu selection, base management, character progression, GPS—everything. The game will keep running, but you lose insight into what is happening around you. This happens mostly after a climactic scene after defeating a boss, for some strange reason, and the only solution is to restart the game to fix every bug that has been accumulating during your play time. That is very annoying! Hopefully these technical glitches get fixed because they almost ruin the whole game. Despite these shortcomings, when the game is running really well, it's impressively fun across the board. You play at your own pace, chart out your character growth, and grind through until you make your goals a reality. If you've enjoyed the original game, then this is a no-brainer. This is better in a lot of aspects even though the first game ran better consistently.

      Fun game, a little buggy

      If you're looking for a zombie killfest, this is probably it. The game's mechanics are good, and the gunfights and melee combat are very good and the control are tight; however, the game has some problems with simpler things such as vehicle physics (like getting stuck on guardrails, getting stuck going off-roading in ditches and rocks, and in multiplayer if two players are driving separate cars near each other and collide the cars can catapult or destroy each other almost comically), being bogged down too many missions while you're doing other things (and thusly you can lose allies who feel neglected and leave because you've been stuck neck deep in zombies trying to navigate through the town), and slow patches because Microsoft has to go through a lengthy process of approving the patch even though the game developer's have had it ready for weeks or longer. TL;DR: I would recommend if you're looking for a zombie shoot-em-up with simpler base building aspects; with that in mind, know that some of the cars physics can be strange, the game is still a little buggy, and patches are going to be trickled in slowly.

      1 flaw, otherwise perfect

      This game is an open-world, zombie apocalypse survival game. What it has to offer (that the first SOD game did not have) is the ability to join and play with friends. If you are someone who enjoyed playing the older Left for Dead games (especially in a team of friends), you will probably enjoy playing State of Decay 2 with your buddies as well. This game keeps you busy with objectives, looting, and fighting off zombies. I would have definitely given 5 stars; however, 1 star has to be deducted based on the mechanics alone. The game has its moments of being buggy, especially when driving in a vehicle during multi-player. The graphics could be way better, considering this game was released in 2018. Also, (not 100% sure but...) you can't search and join random online players. I believe you can only play with people you know and send invites to. These issues aside, as I said before, the gameplay is so much fun. I would recommend it, especially if you intend on playing it with friends.

      The series has been revived

      State of decay 2 had brought new life into a series that started one the original Xbox. Are you into action adventure games? This is definite for you. Are you into survival games? This is for you too! Do you enjoy light simulators? This is for you as well! This game is a mash up of these three genres and it balances them very well. If you want to build your own story and survive the zombie apocalypse all why attempting to create the largest and most powerful group this will give you hours to spend time on. The action adventure loop is fun and you always find tense situations to decide whether or not you want to run, hide, or fight. The survival makes you tends to everyone’s needs in you camp and aid each persons problems, disease, medical conditions. The simulator is building your camp to be the beat it can be. I highly recommend this to anyone that was slightly interested... and it’s only 30 dollars!

      Right up front I love this game. Even though it's glitchy and co-op can be hit or miss. The fun I have with this game is immeasurable! Organizing and strategically deciding what you're going to do is a blast that sets my mind at ease. This game does sometimes try and randomly throw a lot at you, but since it's going for a more "realistic" zombie apocalypse, it fits. You're not going to be able to help everyone, you are going to have people die, you will have to scavenge for supplies. But the joy of being in this living world that has a back story that eventually brings everything together is just too much fun to miss out on in my opinion. At it's core mechanics it's a survival horror with base building in the zombie apocalypse. If that doesn't sound even kinda fun, just walk away. But with budget price and budget expectations you will find a gem here!

      I loved playing through this game even fighting through the bugs. You get 3 different story scenarios based on which type of leader you choose for your community so there is reason to play through it multiple times. Also you have 3 different areas to start and finish communities in. Once you beat one area you can jump to the next and carry over 3 of your best survivors fully stocked with whatever they can carry in their inventory. It is a way to give you benefit in a new game + type of way. The only grips I have with the game is the co-op. The person joining the game won't get much out of playing with you. If you were playing with a friend you would have to do their story arc and then do yours which can be a plus to some but I found pretty annoying. For the budget price its totally worth buying.

      To say I am disappointed is an understatement

      I really had high hopes for this game. I loved State of Decay as flawed at it was in terms of bugs. I told everyone who played xbox one to get this game. I bought on release day and was extremely disappointed. Doesn't have the same feel as the original and the storyline is very boring and slow. I feel like the original sucked you right into the action. This one almost feels like a chore to play. If I didn't buy online through Microsoft (couldn't do a review on there but wanted to do one regardless) I would have returned the game already. Sorry for those who like it. I am very underwhelmed by it.
