Critic Reviews for Into the Dead 2

Into the Dead 2 is an endless runner originating in the mobile gaming segment and for that, it does a decent job with its apocalyptic atmosphere and fun gameplay mechanics. If only it had been properly adapted for the Nintendo Switch, however, then perhaps the game would be something more worthy of the console's catalogue, rather than a visually enhanced version of a short experience for mobile devices. As such, it's also impossible to justify its selling price when the original version is free.

Into the Dead 2 is a pretty fun, well-made auto-run zombie survival game that arrives on Switch at a ludicrous price point that makes it very hard to justify picking up.

Into the Dead 2's transition from a heavily microtransactioned mobile game to the Nintendo Switch is not without issues.

Though it’s simple on the surface, it’s altogether plain old fun!

Someone must be crazy to ask 35'/40$ for this mobile port on Nintendo Switch.

Everyone else, however, is probably better off waiting until it’s discounted, otherwise they might feel as gone in the head as the shambling undead they’re killing time and time again.

Into the Dead 2 on the Nintendo Switch is just as addictive as the Mobile version, only with no sign of energy or in-App purchases! Despite the very simplistic controls and grindy purchase and upgrade mechanics, I found it incredibly hard to stop playing this game due to the constant progression and multitude of missions to complete. 60 levels of zombie slaughter, 300 missions to complete, 36 additional missions via three Side Stories (60 with the DLC/physical edition), and a whole host of companions, weapons, boosts, and Arcade events – this is simply the definitive edition of the game without any doubt. If you, like me, find yourself easily addicted to simple mobile games, this game will hook you and keep you playing for hours upon hours.

Into the Dead 2 is astoundingly expense for an auto-run game. There are two DLC packs, Ghostbusters and Night of the Living Dead, which look better than the base game however, these are available for an additional £4.49 each! The game’s core mechanic will most likely bore most people. It may appeal to the casual gamer and if you’re interested in the title then download the free to play mobile version as the Switch version is definitely not worth your time or money. This game needed to stay dead. I award the game a Thumb Culture Bronze Award.
