Review scores for State of Decay 2 are now in and it seems like there’s mixed opinions. The game is currently sitting at a 66 on Metacritic with more reviews yet to come in, but so far, reviewers seem to be praising it for its fun combat, yet expressing disappointment in the amount of bugs.
We gave it a 7/10 and said: State of Decay 2 is just as good as the original but fails to make good on its major promises. There’s some great quality of life improvements here and there, but the repetitive goals to work towards and cursory co-op options stop it from being any better than the original. Despite all this, State of Decay 2’s gameplay loop is strangely alluring, but many won’t put up with its technical shortcomings.
IGN gave it a 7.5/10 and said: 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.
