Here’s Our Vermintide 2 Review: Flawed, But Really Fun

With Fatshark having released their Vermintide sequel last week, it’s already taken the internet by storm, selling over half a million copies and getting critical acclaim. We put together a three minute Vermintide 2 review, showing off both its flaws and its far more numerous good points, so take a look!

Vermintide 2 is, of course, the sequel to the original Vermintide, which Fatshark released back in 2015. Players take on the role of four of five characters as they carve through vast hordes of ratlike Skaven and savage Norscan barbarians as they accomplish objectives.

The game is bloody fun, in every sense of both words, and the three classes that each player can use allows a good amount of both replay value and customization to the game. It also is able to so far run anywhere between 30 frames per second and 120 frames per second depending on your rig.

However, the game does have some flaws; joining a random game can leave you at a disadvantage due to party composition, and the game is rather light on story; you go into a map, do a mission, kill hundreds of enemies, and leave, and with only 13 missions there’s not really much to go on, though Fatshark will undoubtedly release more DLC later in the game’s lifetime.

You can watch our Vermintide 2 review above, and maybe get the game yourself if your PC is up for it. Vermintide 2 is currently exclusive to the PC, but will be coming to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.
