Hey, everyone today im here to bring you a full review on the new state of decay 2 which was recently released last week on the 18th of May so if your looking for the next great zombie game to play im excited to share this really fun and exciting game today so please enjoy.
About the game

The player starts the game by selecting a pre-created character each character has their own set of skills and personality traits like strength, shooting, fighting, stamina, likes and dislikes etc. gameplay is set in a fictional map setting where the zombie plague has been unleashed and it is up to you and your fellow survivors to explore the landscape and find a safe structure to renovate and build facilities like beds, an infirmary, and a workshop and create your own zombie fortress, also some homes have extra storage and upgradable storage so you can stockpile more resources.
When you’re out exploring you can find and add different mods to your facilities like a bullet press, water cooler etc. In order to keep your supplies fully stocked, you must search different areas for supplies like food, weapons, health packs and building materials.
On your search, you will come across different survivors which you can bring with you back to your base and build a community safe haven you can also create a squad of followers to go out with you on your adventures.
My Hands-On Review
This game has some similarites to the first game that was released back in 2013 on the xbox 360 the only things that have changed are the graphics are slightly better the game is set in a new location and there are a few added features like new building materials, the ability to claim any building as your own which in order to do so you must add extra mods and perform tasks like successfully clearing infested homes and doing side missions for other survivors you come across in order to get upgrade points and you must have a certain amount to claim more safe houses.
You must also collect special mods called antennas mods which will extend the range on your current safe house radio and increase the number of safe houses you can claim at a time. They also added lookout towers throughout the game to make it easier for you find resources and items for missions that you must complete to progress in the game, all in all, I would give this game a 7.5 out of 10 just because of the game’s similarities to the first game in the franchise.
Pros and cons
- improved graphics
- new features
- more areas to explore
- same ravenous zombies mame and kill
- extremely similar to the first state of decay
- Super repetitive gameplay
As you can see the pros outnumber the cons but If you were a fan of the previous game then I would definitely recommend this game to you because I can personally say that I am a fan of this game just because of the freedom it gives you to explore. If you didn’t like the last game then I would advise you not to buy this game as it is as repetitive as its predecessor. Well, that about wraps it up for my full review of the new state of decay 2. So what was your like or dislike about the game? let me know what you think in the comments below.
