Critic Reviews for Warhammer: Vermintide 2

IGN

8 / 10.0
Tom Marks

Warhammer Vermintide 2 is a beautifully dark game, and I'm in love with its hard-hitting, meaty melee weapons. It's a gorgeous game with tons of fun play styles and customization options to uncover, even if most of the loot you earn for your efforts is a letdown. But thankfully you don't need to pay much attention to it to simply enjoy the hack-n-slash, Left 4 Dead-inspired co-op fun of bashing hordes of rats and zombies to a pulp.

A highly accomplished sequel that innovates without losing sight of what made the first one great.

Vermintide 2's combat and level design are so feverishly fun that I'll put up with its bad matchmaking and RPG progression if it means chopping more ratmen in half.

Even without microtransactions, loot boxes manage to spoil another potentially classic game, although the core combat and co-op atmosphere still shine through.

Vermintide 2 is a bucket of gory fun made even better by a solid progression and loot system.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a game that stands alone, as one of the few follow-ups to the cooperative formula that Left 4 Dead established. It also perfectly captures the feel of Warhammer fantasy: the missions are hard, with players wading into blood and fire to dispatch the hordes of Skaven and Chaos. Being a coop game, your fun will live and die on matchmaking and group composition. Unfortunately, that matchmaking is sometimes spotty and players lack tools to really manage the group. Despite that, Vermintide 2 is still the best time you can have hacking apart evil together.

Vermintide 2 is an improvement over its predecessor with more beautifully designed sprawling levels, more varied enemy types, an addicting loot system, and a whole lot of character skills to try out. The sequel is at its best when it's creating tense moments, even if it can quickly get a little bit overwhelming. I also apologize to all of those I left to die in matchmaking.

Even though Warhammer: Vermintide II has some issues with its progression system and matchmaking, it is one of the best cooperative games ever created thanks to its gameplay. Fatshark has polished all the issues that its predecessor had and delivers an amazing game.
