    Besides, polish is overrated. Consider Dawn of the Dead. Both of them. Zack “Justice League” Snyder’s update is polished, contemporary, and appropriately dumb. But Romero’s original is raw, uneven, and still powerful. They each have their place, but only one of them is timeless. If you want the fullest and most thorough expression of zombie mythology in a movie, you watch Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. If you want the fullest and most thorough expression of zombie mythology in a game, you play Undead Labs’ State of Decay 2.

    Microsoft and Undead Studios succeeded in delivering a good Xbox-exclusive game. The coop and loot elements are well done with smooth gameplay and upgrading mechanic. Unfortunately, the huge amount of bugs sometimes cause it to be unplayable. Apparently, due to the latest game patches, the bugs are being fixed quickly.

    State of Decay 2 is a "bigger, better and more badass" sequel, with plenty of missions and activities to engage. Playing it in co-op is a good addition, but in the long run the game loses part of its charm. The graphics are outdated and far from modern game standards.

    In State of Decay 2 we got additions that we didn’t even need, while the mechanics that called for changes (such as fighting) remained without any major interference. The game shoves in multiplayer too much, which degrades some parts of the single-player into a digital chore. Eventually, you may not even appreciate, that the game is bigger than the first one.

    The purchase is basically only worthwhile if you have not played the predecessor yet...This lack of innovation is all the more disappointing for me because the developers of Undead Labs had originally planned their game as a zombie MMO, where we were to fight with hundreds of players on a map together for survival. And now, instead, they deliver a mediocre co-op mode.

    The problem with State of Decay 2 is that it fails to go steps beyond what the first game achieved. It is a given that fans of State of Decay will surely have a good time, especially when playing with friends (and when some of the technical issues will be addressed), but overall Undead Labs’ new game fails to impress.

    State of Decay 2 looks like a totally broken remake of the original game.

    Last of us does not have the same complexity and sense of apocalypse that this game has. Graphics are great, excellent and fluid gameplay

State of Decay 2 takes almost everything from the first game and improves upon it and also expands the world that the first State of Decay created. Of course, this game isn't for everyone, and no game is or ever will be. However, if you enjoy hands on resource management games and are intrigued by the zombie apocalypse survival genre, you will find hours of enjoyment from the game. Expand

    I enjoyed playing it for 3 days on Xbox One. Played it mostly by myself, but planning on jumping in on others game soon. My base has 7 peopleI enjoyed playing it for 3 days on Xbox One. Played it mostly by myself, but planning on jumping in on others game soon. My base has 7 people and is self-sustaining. I lost all my initial members. At first I thought changing base was the worse decision but now my new base is thriving. There is trial and error to base management. Upgrades should always detail their new maintenance cost. I lost an agriculture professor because I thought the game was closed when I was in the Xbox One homepage but it was still working in the background. I found it fun, but not perfect. Looking forward to having 2 other communities in the 2 other maps. Expand

    I hate to give it only 5 but the coop really downgraded the game. Single player is fun and worth a 7.5/10, driving is smooth, character skillI hate to give it only 5 but the coop really downgraded the game. Single player is fun and worth a 7.5/10, driving is smooth, character skill is well balanced, permanent death creates excitement and consideration.is a fun RPG zombie game with the gentle atmosphere(that being said, when going to new map need to abandon the old base is really bad, why punish player to explorer the map that you work hard with???)
    but when it comes to the coop, bug, delay, disconnect and wired limitation downgraded the game .as a volunteer, u cannot use host base nor own base, the item share system is bad. I have a disconnect every 15 - 20 minutes while playing with my friends, there are some little bugs constantly too.

    #GOOD: XP when you kill zombie, upgrade attack/defense etc, 4 players online, mini-mission, good concept, but
    #BAD: can't save in the game
    #GOOD: XP when you kill zombie, upgrade attack/defense etc, 4 players online, mini-mission, good concept, but
    #BAD: can't save in the game manually, auto-save are rares, luminosity is ultra low, you will need your lamp everywhere. The only thing you will do is pick loot and go to the base all time, in same time you kill zombie.

    #NOTE - 4/10: I recommand you to rent the game before buying, Because the ratio/price could be better.

    You can't rate a Game higher than 5 if it's Microsoft Store exclusive tbh... even it it's a masterpiece, sadly this one isn't.

    Wait till

    Wait till it's out on Steam or just don't get it at all.

Além de ser extremamente bugado, é basicamente uma cópia quase idêntica do jogo anterior (que a propósito curti muito).
    O jogo se resume a adquirir novas bases e satisfazer os desejos bobos das pessoas de sua colônia com suas missões pessoais repetitivas e sem graça
