In scope, Dead Trigger 2 reminds me of Real Racing 3, a cross-platform real time gaming community that's ever-growing and interacting. Of course, RR3 isn't available for Windows Phone, sadly, but at least DT2 is!
I spent an exciting half hour working through the initial stages of Dead Trigger 2, I won't pretend to have scratched the surface of the game, but here's how I got on:
The FPS (First Person Shooter) aspects of Dead Trigger 2 are top notch. There are tremendous 3D visuals, seeing through gaps, lighting effects, that sort of thing, all powered by the Unity engine. And there's real excitement when the action's going on. This is where the game should stay, I reckon. If it had been £2.99 as a one-off purchase then this would be a no brainer, recommend-to-everyone title.
But it's not. In between the action are drudging freemium health and weapon power-ups, stuff to do with numbers and inventory and making medicine (and possibly over-expensive IAPs) when all you want to be doing is getting out there in the city blasting the undead into oblivion, one limb at a time. I don't doubt the game's scope and ambition, and I'm all for that. I just don't want to have to juggle stats and parameters - just give me a % health before I'm dead and I'm happy.
See if you agree with me. You can download Dead Trigger 2 here, though be warned that it's half a Gigabyte download for an installed size of over 1GB.
PS. As an extra taster, here's the official promo/trailer for the game:
