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" :)

I really hate giving a mediocre score to a game that clearly had so much time and effort spent on it, but man, Road of the Dead 2 just disappointed the hell out of me. I was already nervous when I saw it on the front page, as I thought that the first game was so great that nothing could possibly improve on it. Sadly, I was proven right: plenty of content is added to this sequel, but all of it only detracts from everything that made the original so fantastic.

On the one hand, I do have a certain appreciation for the game's premise, as the protagonists being soldiers allows for some fun minor callbacks to the first game, like the same radio conversations reappearing. But the soldier premise also, unfortunately, undermines the feeling of desperation and terror that the first game had. One single man driving a haphazardly-upgraded civilian car feels much more vulnerable than two soldiers driving an army Jeep with a whole horde of weapons in tow. The voice acting here is basically on par with the original, in terms of sound and acting quality, but I liked the first character a lot more. Sure, he had a lot of goofy lines and was totally flat (I'll confess I've completely forgotten his name), but his solitude and desperation still shone through, and you really got the sense that you were totally alone and had nobody to fall back on. It seems like this game's trying to give you that same sense, seeing as the sound design is just as chaotic and freaky, but you really can't feel scared when you have backup and loads of spare ammo.

The gameplay upgrades only make the game feel unfocused. The original's design was properly focused on the car, the title being "Road of the Dead" and all; you had barely any weapons and only used them as a last resort, with your true main weapon being the car itself as it plowed down zombies and soldiers at breakneck speeds. That was my favorite part of the game: Gathering up a ton of speed and getting into a long combo chain of demolished undead! But in the sequel, you can never go above 20 MPH (at least, it feels that slow) because you're always stopping every few feet. And once you do, you have to wait for your partner to slooooooooowly go to work at repairing the car or gathering ammo (how long could that possibly take, anyway?) while you shoot at zombies that are too damn hard to kill. If I had a penny for every time I got devoured by a zombie jumping into my car, I'd have a thousand dollars, and I only played the game for less than an hour.

At first, I figured that I'd only need to stop if I was running especially low on ammo or if the car was especially damaged, but I soon came to realize that happened ALL THE TIME! You basically need to stop at every single building, because if you don't, you will almost immediately run out of ammo, and since it's so hard to get up to an acceptable speed, you won't be able to kill enemies with your bumper and you WILL get eaten.

Like I said, there was clearly a lot of love poured into this game, and the presentation - music, graphics, voice acting, features - is absolutely top-notch. I do like that you've included a level creator mode, which if you ask me, is something nearly every game should carry by now! I regret that I'm judging it primarily based on its predecessor, but regardless of my reservations, Road of the Dead 2 just doesn't come together.

Lots of people find this review helpful!

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

My game kept freezing almost every 10 seconds and I don't know why, but it is anowying and it pisses me off and it causes me to fail and worst of all, it dosen,t keep my upgrades when I die. It only keeps my upgrades when I reach a checkpoint


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Love the game, it has great voices. And its a cool continuation of the previous game. The gameplay is also spot on.
The only thing that bugged me was the lag at times. When the guncursor got stuck or didn't move fast enough. This killed me many of times. Yet the game was so good it got me hooked on it until I saw the endcredits roll over the screen.
Can't wait for road of the dead 3
