State of Decay 2
Top Critic Average
Summary: State of Decay 2 may be just as hacked together as the original, but it also retains that game's spark. Managing a camp will appeal to anyone who likes ticking off checkboxes and planning for the future.
Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
Genres: Horror, RPG
State of Decay 2's zombie-infested maps are good places to scavenge, fight, and survive in. Combat is satisfyingly brutal and the special zombies inspire some real fear of permanent death, even though the Blood Plague turns out to be more of a sniffle. But the bugs are just as persistent as the zombies, and after a dozen or so hours the repetition of both eventually take their toll, making the appeal of replaying feel more limited than I'd expected for a sandbox RPG.
