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" :)

Gotta love that one zombie type that won't die no matter how many rounds you waste trying to get it off your hood. If he jumps on, forget going any further. You might as well just park your car and whistle dixie until it goes in for the kill, and you can then try again. Otherwise, seems like a very well put together game. The voices are top-notch (dialogue's a little hokey, but it's to be expected). The animation is at least professional looking and serviceable.

Fuck this game. Nobody reloads that slowly when there's a zombie on your hood.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

From part one, I knew this would be a good game. When I played, I was impressed, but when the chopper came in to help me, I was STUNNED. Nice job guys!

It's doubtful anyone is gonna read is but whatever.

There are some rather frustrating issues I found playing the story mode of RotD2 and I'll list them in order:

My biggest complaint would be the frame rate issue. Whenever I drove pass a spot with lots of objects interacting at once (e.g. 2 zombies in my hood with various gore splattering from other bodies and some mines exploding) the frame rate would take a nosedive and I'll have around 0.5-1 second delay input in both my actions which caused 70% of my deaths. Giving more options like turning off the background or the gore would be nicer for people who have crappy laptops.

My second complaint would be the highway section. The highway sections is about 7000~ km total and it is incredibly tedious. As there are no garage/church to go too, these sections are a nightmare to drive through if you did not have sufficient upgrades in tire/engine/bumper. It doesn't help that the player can easily die around 3000~ of the 4000 km section drive because you can't heal yourself. The frame rate issue I was having didn't help and I spend several hours trying to finish that 4000km section in frustration. The best way around this would be to spawn car fixing spots and medical bays like Weapon Crate. If the devs felt the section's difficulty is 'just right', then it's probably akin to nightmare mode for players.

The player's health is too low. It is understandable if you wanted to make it realistic as possible, but even with the game divided into sections and health kits added, the player can still be killed off rather easily. This wouldn't be a problem if say, your health kit and steroids are permanent upgrades, but since it isn't we are stuck with a curious situation where you can be killed in 2 hits from a mine or a carpet bombing. Maybe I'm just bitter I got stuck at the highway with absolutely zero healing items.

Also here's some bugs I found while playing:

- when you have frame rate drop and then alt + tab while having a solider zombie on your hood, it may rarely gain nigh invincibility against your bullets repelling every shot of your gun before jumping to feast on you. Had it happen twice on my run with it bathing my bullets on it's face for a full 5 second as I spray a 5/5 damage upgraded LMG at it before it jumped on me.

- not sure what caused it, but I once got a zombie animation where it was jumping to you before a gameover stuck on the driver's side until I game over. Maybe because I hit an object at the same time as the zombie was jumping on me?

-Seems like the gun upgrades on the car isn't permanent? I brought it and it disappears when I die or when it ran out of ammo.

Overall it's still a fun game if a bit on the hard side. I'm sure you guys worked hard on it and I'm grateful for doing to for us.

PS. I'm gonna touch it again through until the frame rate dropping issue is fixed/resolved. Seriously.
