State Of Decay 2 (SoD2) has got to be the biggest joke released this year!
I have been playing this for 1 week now, I was pumped to get online and do this game some justice.......BUT!
I cant get past the bugs! ... This is the worst game release I have EVER owned!....Ever!
Jeff Strain is a business man, he paid INTERNS to develop this then promptly sold the rights to Microsoft for a huge profit, showing his true colors as a business man, not caring about the end product or customer.
Its not just the bugs, its the engine as well, the biggest issue I have is, the GPU still runs full speed when the game is minimized to the taskbar! I still get 75-99% GPU usage.
All the 'Patches and Updates' that dont resolve anything, I'm really not to sure if there is anything in the scrips that fix's anything.

I'm not going to criticize the game play, everyone likes a different flavor and to each their own.
What I will criticize is the unpolished/finished release that was thrown out into the market.
I guess we pay to be the BETA testers and the returned telemetry/data helps them develop the game.
BS Business Model! ... And updates that don't really fix anything.


So here is my list of Bugs .... (Add your own experience and bugs to the post please).
> Wont release the GPU when minimized to the taskbar. (Can't really 'Pause' the game to do other stuff)
> Invisible Bloaters on the road, killed 4 players sofar.
> Followers vanishing, going back to camp. (Watched one return to me on the world map)
> Walk up to a door or gate that has a car parked on the other side, open the door and flip the car 30 ft into the air to 50 ft away.
> Followers or player falling ? way into the ground and getting stuck there. (Workaround provided in the menu, but not for in car)
> Vehicles getting stuck on invisible barriers.
> Mouse movement goes wonky, have to draw a weapon to get it sorted out. (This is truly bad during an attack by zombies).
> Climb over a fence or onto a surface mechanics ... This is pooched, totally wrong and bad.
> Missions get stuck and cant change, have to exit game and restart.

So that's why I don't buy any games before I read those reviews or intro videos.
Hope you can still have fun from other games :D

Where did I mention I bought the game ... I'm not saying I pirated it, it may have been a gift.

Anyways, here are some more bugs, I'm going to keep adding to the list here.
> Doors that appear open and are actually closed, resulting in a faceplant when attempting to run thru the doorway.
> When entering a vehicle, the sidearm attachments (Clip and silencer) remain suspended in the air outside of the vehicle.
> Wave after wave of zombie attacks and they never despawn, knee deep in the dead until you exit the game and restart.
> Vehicle bodies disappearing, or flickering in and out depending on the angle viewed.
> Honk the horn when driving to attract zombies to run them over, the truck stalls, you get overwhelmed by 20 zombies....Your player dies.

My final opinion on State Of Decay 2 on the MSI GT75 8RF Titan.
Ultra setting, minimum solid 60 FPS, GPU averaged 60?C, CPU averaged 55?C.
Game play was smooth, mouse action well defined ans aiming was a breeze.

As for the game itself, a huge disappointment, this is reflected in Amazons decision to discount it for $19.99 USD.
3 Maps you progress through, completed 2, then the game sent back to the first .... I quit the game.
It truly is a 20 dollar game, directed to the online teams that want to shoot up and splat, chop, blast and squish some zombies.
Bugs, more bugs, stupid bugs that should have NEVER been released in the final version. Sloppy craftsmanship, uncaring for the final product, no effective updates.
Some game breaking bugs still exists.
But who cares if all you want to do is go splat and hack some zombies, its all good fun, RIGHT!?
And I bought the GT75 just to play SoD2 (Came from W7).

What you don't get in Fallout 4 ....
