LAG ISSUE: If the game lags, you can try a few things, lower the graphics quality and disable zombie tints in the options. You can also right-click on the game, click on settings, go to the far left tab and uncheck hardware acceleration, some people said it fixed all lag. Don't forget to recheck it later for other games.

SAVING BUG: Set unlimited save data, to do so, right click the game screen, click on settings, and click on the middle icon. From there, drag the arrow to the furthest notch on the right, so it says unlimited.

CONTROL FREEZE BUG: To help with this bug, Go into your Control Panel, open up the Keyboard settings set Repeat Delay to long and the Repeat Rate to slow. Just don’t forget to set them back to normal when you want to type something like "meeeeeeeeeh" :)

Rated 5 / 5 stars

great game, i just save 90 people but i killed 182 people because i always hit them, but it is awesome!!!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I do NOT write about these bugs, cuz people already done it. But even if I not mention these bugs, I still can`t give five stars to the game. Why?
Because I compare it with the Road of the Dead 1. Yeah, all people who produced sequels for different stuff, including games, always had problems with oldfags and first-part-fans. So, I am just a problem, but I cannot do anything with myself.

===Bad Things===

1. Where, oh, where is that thrill of speed and hardcore? When you know that you`re doomed, doesn`t matter how much time you will hold on, but you still fight for you liffe... It`s a great feeling.
But now, you can just crawl through all game at low speed, stopping at weapon crates, churches and garages to refill your ammo, repair your car and restore your health. And this long stupid survival that follow after nearly all of your actions... It makes the game just borng!
Also, all the game turned into zombie RPG-survival from an unusual kind of racing. I like racing and don`t like zombie survivals. SBT.

2. Characters! It`s a good idea to set two main heroes in the game. (I play for the red-haired Diane and my girl plays for that brutal man, just for lulz)
But only look at them! Why I must play for that green Dart Vaider aka Cocheta? Or for a girl... Ok, ok, the girl is nice, but that Cocheta makes me fear.
Why a professional military unit reloads the weapon SO LONG??? Yes, traditions of RPG require constant repeating of an action to make the hero do it well... But it is ridicolous!

===Good Things===

1. I still can pass the game at the speed-haardcore style, not stopping at all.

2. That "survival guide'. It is brilliant. Interesting and helpful!

3. I can play with my girl or my gay friend. Me for Diane and the girl/gay for Cocheta. Soooo much lulz :D

4. Just two words: Control Settings. Nothing moar 2 say.

5. And, overall, it is a good RPG! It is an unexpected RPG, and I don`t like this genre of games very much, but I can say that this RPG is great.

Pfffffff. 2093 letters and other written language characters. I hope that anybody can read it all ;D

A great game, marred by technical issues.

The game is solid overall. But a few things hold it back from 5-star quality.

As has been stated by nearly everyone. These bugs are simply unacceptable. The control freezing bug has led to several rather cheap deaths on my end. The end-user shouldn't have to make changes on his/her end to get this game to function properly. Get on that.

Second, but almost as egregious as the bugs, this game is a resource hog. While I enjoy and applaud the level of detail and sheer number of interactive objects and entities in the game, the fact remains that this game reaches untenable frame-rates very, very quickly, even on a decent mid-grade machine like mine. Again, this has led to some frustrating deaths when the game is rendered near-unresponsive due to the sheer amount of things going on on-screen.

When I *finally* finished the campaign, the ending cinematic was running like a slideshow run by a narcoleptic! That is just as unacceptable as the bugs!

Bottom Line: Top-notch quality, seriously marred by a couple of particularly nasty bugs, and the amount of horsepower needed to run it for almost any amount of time.

Evil-Dog responds:

I agree, sadly I can't, for the life of me, fix them. The invincible zombies I've never had myself and checked the code a million times to see how it would happen and couldn't find it. And the control freeze bug, everytime we've had them and outputting the input values, everything was in order, it's just flash getting queued up on his inputs and nothing I can do about that. The game is at the line where it's taking that much juice from flash that flash sometimes cannot handle it. We're preparing a kickstarter to redo both games in Unity3D, with all redone HD graphics, HD audio and top performance (not being flash and GPU accelerated in Unity3D), as a bundle with the 2 games on Steam.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

the game isn't really that great compared to the first one, and the bugs are horrendous, even with your suggested fixes.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Honestly if they made another Road of the Dead then these people are amazing at making these games and I will enjoy these games for long times to come.
