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" :)

Jeez, what's with all of these reviews bashing this? Sometimes it feels like people forget that these are FREE FLASH GAMES. The quality of and effort put into this series is definitely a cut above most offerings around here. Yeah, there are a few bugs but the save points are placed often enough so I never had to rage quit.

Anyways, here's what I found most effective for beating this:
- Skills level up as you use them, so focusing one character on driving and the other on shooting makes the most sense. Once you level up, reloading is much quicker than switching seats. The dude has better weapons so I let the chick drive.
- Stopping to pick up ammo/medkits/weapontune IS worth it, but you need to level up the perks to make it viable (more ammo, quicker action time)
- If you slow down enough, you can honk the horn to save people and take them to safe areas for exp.
- If you restart the story from the beginning you keep all of your perks and weapon upgrades, good if you wanna grind and get better stuff

I really enjoyed this, probably because it reminds me of my favorite arcade game as a lil kid, Lucky & Wild. Keep up the good work! YOUR GAMES ROCK!

Lots of people find this review helpful!

I really like this game, a lot of things can be done and I was like "OH FUCK" at certain parts. But I think there should be more to the game, maybe like a story line. Not sure if there is one but I went pretty far.

Goddammit. I usually don't login to Newgrounds, but this "sequel" to a series that I used to love has disappointed some very high expectations and this needs to be said.

One: This game is buggier than Daggerfall and a cheap apartment building run by the greediest of slumlords. It's not just as simple as setting storage to unlimited and setting repeat delay to very slow, you will still freeze up at certain points during the game, which brings me to-

Two: This game still has frequent lag spikes, even when setting quality to low, turning off music/sounds and turning off zombie tints. In fact, I was just toggling the quality and I see no significant difference between low/med/high. Really, what is the point of this function when the graphics are still set very close to high?

And by the way, if you don't want to read spoilers about this game, then cover up three through five and read underneath it.

Three: The first protagonist was an extremely resourceful and mechanically-inclined punk who knew that if you ran out of ammo, then you could still start swinging. (Of course, bites on his fists are also probably how he got infected.) These two new guys? "Oh hey, we're supposedly two trained soldiers packing more heat than the last guy, but we don't got the sense to carry a knife or something, in case we run out of ammunition! If we didn't have our magical infinite ammo pistol, we'd be DOOOOOOOOOMED!" Am I really supposed to believe that two trained soldiers are stupider, lazier and weaker than one mechanic?

Four: At least 35% of the time, the mouse will lag while you are shooting. It is not a case of it going off-screen, it WILL lag. The ammo also packs very little power, I think headshots might make a difference, but if it does, then I can't tell the difference. A better way to save your ammo and not waste those precious few seconds where you need to see what is on your screen is to bump into a building, which is less destructive than say, crashing into a vehicle, especially the ones that are on fire. Mailboxes and gnomes won't make a difference. If you can't find buildings because you're in a park or an alley, use benches/trees/sides of dumpsters instead.

Five: Stopping for upgrades/meds/ammo is not even worth it. "We're sitting ducks here, just go!" with three zombies right in front of you is a common occurrence in-game, you are better off abusing the steer function near clusters of military vehicles, schoolbuses, spike strips, mines, etc. so you don't catch on fire, hunting out water barrels (if you want to smash zombies fast enough so they don't mount your hood, you will not have time to shoot fire hydrants) in an OCD fashion and mostly driving fast enough to make a normal person hurl (stop near clusters of vehicles), so a zombie doesn't mount you in the first place. That way, you'll be mostly focused on avoiding vehicles, walls, spike strips, mines, etc.

Okay spoiler-avoiders, you can start reading again below this sentence.

Eventually, if you don't get frustrated with the bugs, the lags and the incompetence of your characters and just outright quit to replay the first game (the graphics for the first game, along with the zombie pet game, DID have a significant difference in graphics [and in turn, performance] when you toggled the quality.), you will eventually pass through the hordes of idiot livings, the annoying deads and all the obstacles and eventually win this game.

Please understand: I do love this series and I think the creator has talent, I would not have logged in to review otherwise.
