Gadgets 360 says: "All said and done, State of Decay 2 is a great addition to the library of any Xbox One or Windows 10 PC gamer. It might sound derivative on paper, but multiple elements come together to make a game that’s well worth your time."
A Microsoft title that currently has a 69 on Metacritic is one of Xbox One’s best titles? http://www.metacritic.com/g...
72 now. Slowly rising.
with the help of some questionable scores no doubt, that MS money goes along way.
Some questionable scores? It's 20+ positive scores vs. 6 negative scores. No one is claiming this is a classic but it's looking to be a solid play. Stop with the agenda. It is what it is. A solid game... No blow your mind AAA game
81BX - its another sub par game pushed to be something it's not, at best its filler between big exclusives. Much like that other mediocre dud SOT. Next up on the disappointment train CRACKDOWN 3. Cant spin it any other way, it's a dud.
It will probably drop a few or rise a few but it’s not getting higher than 75 if it’s lucky plus it’s a 68 on opencritic. Oh and where did you learn to count it has 18 positive,15 mixed and 2 straight up bad so I don’t know where you got 20 plus positive and only 6 negative
a game can be enjoyed regardless of its score and same goes for highly rated games. people really should grow up.
@oldboy: More like loyalty. Fanaticism. Gamers, and reviewers, who have been in a long term "relationship" with MS and see them doing no wrong. @bouzebbal: "a game can be enjoyed regardless of its score and same goes for highly rated games." In that same vein some really need to accept that a title that's a "7" isn't a "10", that while they like they're part of a minority, and move on.
I believe its 69 now, I also love how MC counts scores in 50s as mixed hahaha
Wow lol, this last streak of exclusives really doesnt scream buy me console wise. Come on MS show me what your working with.
@FallenAngle1984 Its now got a metacritic score of 72, not a huge rise, but a rise all the same. Plus the game currently has 18 positive reviews, 15 mixed and 2 negative. What I love at this site is that when God of War was getting a fee mixed reviews, they weren't real reviews, they were just clickbait. But when an Xbox game gets positive reviews, they are also obviously clickbait and cant be trusted.
When you have over 150 really, really positive reviews and between 5 to 10 mixed to negative reviews something is off, when out of 35 reviews 15 are mixed and 2 are negative you know that the game clearly has its issues even though it's enjoyable
N4G logic is awesome...
God of War only has good reviews on MC. Not one mixed review..
Funny how that works, at? 😂
You are so right with this one. These people can’t process in their heads that people have different taste in game when it comes to reviews.
@ Eiy & shaggy Now it’s back to 69
@FallenAngle194 A 69 on Metacritic for a game that costs £25 is pretty good, and no doubt all the little bugs will get sorted. And that's the point, this game costs £25, can we really expect AAA quality from a game that costs £25? I really doubt that Microsoft made the budget the same as something like Halo 6 or Gears 5.
The cost of a game should never be an excuse for how low its score is
he must have played another game to give a 9 to this.... A near perfect score...
There is no way in hell this mediocre game could be MS best game, because if so damn this website has some very low standards for what the best games are.
All these people claiming both sides and practically none of you have played it yet... calm yourselves with the mightier than thou attitude until real people have played it
Touchy, touchy lol
If this game is one of their best yet, then they're in more trouble than we thought. Things are not looking good for this game. I'm going to steer clear. I just Eurogamer's review and they paint an entirely different picture.
This author thinks this game is one of Xbox One’s greatest titles? 😂😂😂 28514;🤨
It's all subjective. Relax there Mr. Always right!
You're in full in defense mode bud 😂
@gamerzero bugs are bugs!
@unreal01 Defense of what? Personally the game sounds average to me. But since it's a MS title I should say it's complete crap? The guy likes the game.... so what?
Thats what humans on planet earth call an "opinion", just like eurogamer and any other website that reviews the game. To make your own "opinion", play the game and judge for yourself. Dont let a website, or a persons subjective "opinion" dictate what you do or dont play/buy. No matter how many negative/positive scores this gets. Ill still be playing it on gamepass
Sorry DJStotty, logic and reason left N4G a long time ago...
Haven’t you heard? People aren’t allowed to have good opinions around here without ton of disagrees when it comes to Xbox, Switch, and PC gaming.
Think there trying for free advertising on the accolades trailer
9 out of 10. are you kidding? this is a joke, yes? if not, this guy has to stop reviewing games, he is clueless.
He might have personally enjoyed the game, in which case his score is correct. Dont get angry, just remember its his opinion.
reviewer's job not to enjoy personally when others got screwed, your job is to review the game and give an objective picture of the game where many people could find what they are looking for.
@CP So you mean that even if he finds this game to be fun and addictive he should have just said it is a boring and repetitive game in his reviews so that he can help other people from being “screwed” for purchasing this game? Got it. N4G’s logic is awesome.
I really enjoyed the first one so hopefully this one is just as good if not better I’m gonna play it either way reviews shouldn’t matter to gamers because sometimes Z
I honestly feel like reviews like this are more insulting to Xbone over all, rather than helpful. Does the reviewer actually believe this is better than Halo 5, Gears 4, Cuphead, Ori, or any of the Forza’s? Different genres, I know, but their claim covers those.
Lol worst sales pitch EVER.
Id say the first was 6-7 what ive seen, this is going to be the same but with copop.
Not sure why some people are defending this game, surely you want better quality exclusives on your system. 1st party output should not be buggy but Micrososft have release several titles that have been in a poor state -(including Halo MMC and Sea of Thieves) from a very limited roster of exclusives. I don't hold much hope that Crackdown 3 will be any better.
maybe the same reason Sony fans are bashing the game?
Nah... they just love their brand. And the greedy company behind it... blindly!
I've read the review, and what I can tell you the author is very biast, I find it hard to trust pro MS reviewers, they give the highest scores to the game, they name numerous bugs in the game and yet the only con is the framerates, I personally can't give this guy any credit for the review. Even if the game was a 7 I am sure the guy can have an awesome time playing. But naming many cons in the review, is he BSing a 9 or being honest. idk looks to subjective to me.
Maybe people like it. I played state of decay year one on Xbox one. It is one of my favourite games, despite the bugs and has a metacritic of 72. This is scoring the same and if i like it as much as the first i will be very happy. Having said this it really should not have as many bugs. The day 1 update is 14gb ( xbox x) so i am curious if it has a better update fixing more bugs.
Well, I have Games Pass, so I download play and see for myself. Just like Sea Of Thieves which I don't play. I wanted single player mode. There is none. So I deleted it. I mean MS, should know what gamers want . Gears of War 4 and Forza3 are fantastic. I have X1X, so at least I get the best 3rd party versions of console games.
I think single player mode has just been or is being added to SOT.
Is this satire?
LOL at MS sites giving this game high scores...not even subtle
Yeah, but what really baffles me is... They are not being subtle at all with a nine... So why not give the game a 10? and call it a master piece, the greatest game ever made, a game changer! I would respect that, but this...
Great addition to Xbox one and windows 10? Tell me why I should buy Xbox one of it's also on windows 10...
most others gave it a much, much lower score. this blogger seems to be very biased :/
If this game is a 9 then god of war should be a 20 lol. Xbox got such a bad library that xbox players think this is a 9/10 game.
What's his name. Bug. what's his last name. Spray.
