ow Will You Survive? The dead have risen and civilization has fallen. Not even the military could stop the zombies, and now it's up to you to gather survivors and build a community in a post-apocalyptic world – a world where every decision matters, and where you define what it means to survive. State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival game in an open world where you and up to three friends build a community of survivors. It’s up to you to establish a base, develop your characters’ abilities, and manage resources to survive as a group in a world where choices matter and every decision has lasting consequences. Every player’s experience is unique - as you play, the open world responds to your decisions, developing in real time and dynamically offering new opportunities for you to demonstrate your own personal survival priorities. These decisions also result in real consequences that affect your community. Send your best scavenger across the map to gather medicine for a sick friend... but know that they might not make it home. Help your neighbors, and you might make new allies... or you could decide that you need their food supply more than they do. In the end, how you survive might surprise you.

the best and the most near like reality when the apocalypse of risen dead came, it is really fun playing this game, like the predecessor you take control a group of survival, consist of few people, you can take charge each individual, playing long enough to develop skill and experience (this is the RPG parts) and the most best part is you can manage your home base or settlement, build the necessary base building in the open slot, the bigger the settlement the more base building you can build, but it also require a lot of survivalist and in constant thread from zombie horde, i just love this game, there's also Multiplayer parts, but it's not the selling point, the graphics.... well don't expected too much of it

Ultimately, State of Decay 2 has proven a disappointment. Undead Labs laid the groundwork with the original, but it’s failed to build upon this to any noticeable degree. It’s a much prettier, just as buggy, State of Decay 1.5. To some, just having more may be enough, but it would’ve been nice to see them push the boat out just a little bit more. Perhaps they should’ve done that MMO zombie survival game after all...
Despite being a bit of a mess, I continue to find myself entranced by it and continuously coming back for more. It’s a surprisingly deep and rich survival RPG that you’ll be hard pressed to find another like it, especially at the lowered price point. It can be a stressful and frustrating adventure through undead infested territories, but it’s loaded with a lot of charm, and the cooperative play adds a whole new level of enjoyment. With some modifications and continuous work, State of Decay 2 could be a great and meaningful experience, but in its current state, it’s far from the best zombie game out there.
State of Decay 2’s experience will boil down to how talented you are at surviving. The game challenges you to last for as long as possible. It has its moments where it can drag on, and if you’re after a game where you just want to kill mindlessly, this isn’t for you. Zombie survival simulator though? It does what it set out to achieve.
