What's it about?
Set during a zombie apocalypse, INTO THE DEAD 2 casts you as a truck driver named James whose truck crashes and he has to run for his life. While he also has guns he can use on the undead, and is a really good shot, his ammo is limited. He'll be able to use a knife at times, but it's a single-use weapon. Eventually, he'll fall, either by running out of ammo, hitting an obstacle, or landing into the arms of the undead, at which point you'll have to start over.
Is it any good?
Given that the best way to survive a zombie outbreak is to run for your life, it's hardly surprising that this endless runner set during a zombie apocalypse would be instructional -- or fun. In Into the Dead 2, you have to run for your life from a bunch of flesh-eating zombies. Stopping simply isn't an option. While you can veer to the right or left to avoid being eaten or to grab a pile of ammo, you're always moving forward. But you have to watch out for those trees, which will knock you flat and turn you into a zombie snack. Also, while running and dodging the undead is your best option, you also have guns, and are a really good shot. That means you can always take out a zombie or three when necessary; just be conservative, since you don't have a lot of ammo, even after you've run over a pile of the stuff. There are also times when you'll get a knife, which you can use when a zombie does grab you, though like all knives, it's a single-use item. It's a simple idea, but an effective one, especially since the zombies seem to get in your way randomly. That said, it can get a bit repetitive after a while, and unless you have a newer tablet or phone, you'll have to bump down the graphic settings or else it'll chug and sputter on-screen like a slow train. Even so, Into the Dead 2 is still an entertaining way to kill time ... and an effective way to train for the inevitable run for your life.
