Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers has had the smoothest launch of any MMO I’ve ever seen[...]The amount of polish that we’ve seen in other aspects of this expansion also shine through with some great quality of life (QoL) adjustments.
What it really comes down to for State of Decay 2 is that unless you like games with slow resource gathering grinds, and don’t mind an odd bug here or there, this game isn’t going to be for you. The multiplayer can be enjoyable with friends, but at the end of the day, it just barely sets itself above the previous game in the series.
The amount of things to unlock certainly gives the game a vast amount of replay value, especially for players that like to collect things. However, the incredibly poor online component means that you’ll be unlocking those items through frustratingly slow online matches, or by only grinding offline battles.
