Several years have passed since the original How to Survive events on Los Riscos’ archipelago. Now the local infection has turned into a worldwide pandemic. Everyone around the world, groups of people or lone wolves, try to survive one more day among the infected, attempting to recover a semblance of normal life.
You find yourself in Louisiana and your survival chance starts by building a safe camp and becoming a skilled survivalist. Find water, food and shelter and talk to the unconventional locals to make your way around.
Larger, funnier and much better sequel of an already great survival game. Only basics remained the same and humor too and it works as an excellent bonus. A textbook example of what a good sequel should look like.
It's not revolutionary, but the multiplayer focus makes it more enjoyable. If you liked the first one, this sequel won't disappoint you.
How to Survive 2 is a great game if you are looking for a soft and easy experience of survival... but it is very simple (in technical terms). A good choice would be to play with a friend using the cooperative mode.
How To Survive 2 is a pleasant game, especially if you play it with your friends. The game shows a more structured gameplay and well-designed crafting system. However, there is a general lack of information during the first hours, and the resources - especially food and water - sometimes are really hard to find.
How to Survive 2 could be a really good zombie slasher. Unfortunately every aspect of the game falls short or is superficial. It lacks depth, a good story, pacing – you name it. But if you have a few friends over you can overlook some of the shortcomings.
