A direct mobile game port and it shows in every area. Not even remotely worth the time for the price unless you can get it on sale for a dollar like I did. I have seen it on sale on different sites lately for only a dollar. Predictably it has the same feel of the first game, which is of a mobile game. No ability to jump, upgrades are minimal at best, extremely generic mobile looking effects, and so on. Reloading takes seemingly an hour per clip like in the first game and upgrading reload time to the max has really no visible decrease in reload time. Graphics and effects are awful and there is a heavy amount of film grain that just makes it look like bad static on a TV screen.

I'm voting it up though because the game is kinda fun for a dollar.

The devs have contacted me....impressed and have now worked out it's the AMD crimson drivers, which is a shame it crashes as I like Dead Effect and Dead Effect 2, would recommend if you use Cat drivers only.

Have no idea if I'm playing the same game as everyone else, but this feels like a mobile game.

It's not bad for a mobile game, but this has no business being on PC.

Weapon accuracy is terrible, menus are only accessed through NPCs, none of the stats are explained, your health and the damage you take make no sense.

The best way to play the game is just to run up to the enemy and shoot them in the head, because 100% accuracy doesn't mean "hits inside the crosshair"

This is definitely not a very good game for a PC FPS. It's clunky in every way you would expect a mobile port to be, and while it's cool to see some of the techniques and solutions they applied to a mobile platform, they do not carry over to the PC. Ultimately, that's unfortunate, because while the production values are fairly low, it's not incompetent.

To preface: This is not a complete game. It was wrapped up to technically be finished, but it isn't even close to complete due to not having an ending and Class B bugs that cripple the bulk of PC users while their Android version is performing well. (quick score: 7/10 Game engine makes it almost unplayable in how frustrating it is to deal with, but a good game if fixed)


- The RPG elements of purchasing upgrades for guns and melee weapons were well done. They are roughly the same for each weapon (Damage, Accuracy, Sockets, Clip Size for guns, and reload speed for guns) with negatives for melee weapons. The socket upgrades for gear as well as weapons helped some of the lackluster items have a use.

- It was nice seeing more scenarios for generic missions that don't relate to repeating the story missions for items or money.

- The different mini-games were enjoyable and streamlined compared to the first game

- The story was passable. I wasn't annoyed by the progression, nor with the voice acting. The plot twists were the only questionable pieces of the game, which I'll cover in the Con section as spoiler free as possible.

- I liked the variety in upgrades for character abilities, though most aren't useful in the game since only two can be equipped, leaving Bullet Time and whatever else you like to be in constant use during fights.


- The game isn't 20+ hours of gameplay. It is 7 hours with up to 8 hours of grinding generic missions for XP and gear to help complete story missions.

- The ending doesn't even setup for a cliff-hanger. It idles out of gas half way up the cliff by fighting a bad guy's sidekick and stopping the game's story right there. (and even then, it is quite clear in the story, they both aren't bad guys at all)

- The melee weapons get two upgrades when they could have supplemented melee with improved attack speed as an upgrade option amongst other melee focused upgrades. Was a missed opportunity.

- Only two mission varieties: kill stuff, and rotate valve to stop gas from killing you. Some other options like King Of The Hill or Capture The Flag would have worked well and gave some other options for the side missions.

- Almost all of the NPCs stop progressing in their story after about mission 6. When talking to a few of them, they gave bits and pieces of what they did on the ship as well as their current motivations and almost suddenly, stops for the rest of the game. Clearly was rushed.

- The graphic engine is beyond broken. The system specs on the store page are not accurate and still are absurd considering this is an Android game built in Unity and ported to PC. My computer is above the minimum specs and gets 100-115 frames in the Hub and during every encounter drops to 45 to spurt back up to 100, regardless of my video settings. I have it at 800x600 and lowest video settings with shaders off and it still does that, but it is a little more consistent. When I played with the default settings, I was getting 4 frames a second during fights with more than 8 zombies. It makes the game unplayable if you want to not be frustrated during most of the game.

- The frame stuttering caused by the game engine makes using melee weapons scary in their own right.

- There is no way to circumvent fighting the invisible foes. Most one can do is engage Bullet Time when they appear or hopefully hit them as they rush you. It is the most annoying part of the game and I hate it every time they show up. They aren't challenging.

Overall Verdict: 7/10 would not recommend to buy due to game engine making it almost unplayable. The rest of the game itself is a decent experience I would recommend for about $10.

- Every maps feels the same, they are boring and uninteresting.
UI isn't controller friendly. The store page says "Full controller support", but you'll end up using both, your mouse and controller to navigate through menus, in-game inventory, since there's too much mobile leftover.
The "story" is highly forgettable.

+ Performance are good, graphics looks good.

Overall experience is negative.
To sum up, this game is overpriced, no online servers, barely no story, clunky controls, bad UI, maps all feels the same.
If you want to try this game, download the free mobile version.

(bought this game from early access, made suggestions, reported bugs)

Dead Effect 2 or Random Space Shooter No.891245 with Zombies

This Game is mediocore at its best. Everything does not feel "right". The Controls are clunky, the game has the most annoying enemies ever seen in videogame history and the RPG-elements are not worth mentioning.

To put it shortly:

  • Graphics are decent - nothing spectacular, nothing bad
  • The core-gameplay is okay - you shoot stuff and level up
  • The characters in the game are (even if they are totally stereotypicall) somewhat funny

  • The performance of the game is terrible. Everything lags and does not run smoothly - at least on my rig - not mentioning the online mode, wich for some reasons does not run smoothly for me and my friends as well.
  • The enemies - they are a pain in the a**. Some of them are invisible until they attack you, some use hit and run tactics and most of them are bullet-sponges too.
  • The feel of progression is not given in this game - everything takes ages. Level ups take a lot of grinding and even if you find a legendary weapon you do not feel this "itch" what happens in every hack and slay rpg, because they nearly feel the same as the old weapon you used.


This game could be good, but in the end, the game fails at being fun. As said, everything feels clunky, uninspired and allready seen like a hundred times. For the asking price the game is just bad.

My guess is, that if you and a friend would get it for 5€ it can be fun for maybe 2-3 hours. After that time you will feel that something is not right and regret that you bought this piece of boring software.

The fact that this is a mobile game and the frame rate changes so much is just awful.

Edit : Just recently learned that this game was in Early Access. They shouldn't have released a game with awful frame rate problems. Also the developer commented on this review saying that they don't deserve negative reviews just for it being a mobile port. Most people aren't reviewing negatively because it's a mobile port. They do this because it's a awful mobile port. When my computer that can run Fallout 4 at the highest setting, which is a recent AAA game, yet a port of a mobile game goes below 50 fps on the lowest settings, there is a problem. You should have fixed these issues in Early Access.

REally well done until you run into a stupid guy named Minikin.

Then the story gors to crap, and the gameplay pretty much stops.

Looked really promising at first, but the un-needed story really ruins the ambiance.

I got it for 75 cents on a bundle, and I feel like it was too much still. They really screwed this game up bad.

I can only barely recomend this game. I enjoyed the first game. This second game is just as good. The fighting is fun. The enemies are varied and level up with you. But... The game feels incomplete and kind of a rip off because you never fight your big enemy at the only fight your enemy's biggest henchman and then "TO BE CONTINUED". W.... T.... F.... When I saw that I instinctively felt like this game was a complete cash grab and nothing else. On the other hand, it was a fun game. The game lasted quite a bit and had a lot of side missions divided into many sub-groups. Just that the TO BE CONTINUED leaves a sour taste and makes the game feel inadequite and incomplete.

Get the game on sale when it is heavily discounted and you will not feel so bad. If you pay full price that stupid ending will make you feel like you just got robbed.

The actual gameplay is very good, theres a bit of stuff to do. Multiplayer is VERY VERY rare you can never find a server.The final boss if freaking hard, especially in hell mode. I'm maxed level 20 and I STILL get one shoted my the robot ninjas. The actual boss is broken because he can deploy mines, and tag you with an explosive arrow that also one shots you.I mean this gaem is only over a year old so they might fix stuff and make the game better, but this is just my opinion

A fun FPS-RPG mix. The graphics are nice, and so long as you're not concerned with the story I say go for it, it's surprisingly entertaining to shoot zombies in space with a bow.
