Dead on Arrival 2 is the archetypal free-to-play twin-stick zombie shooter, save for one important addition.
It plays as you'd expect, with a grind-heavy emphasis on grabbing and spending coins, and an arsenal ranging from a dirt-cheap pistol to a re-mortgage requiring rocket launcher.
But there's an extra level of fun added by the inclusion of multiplayer. Even by-the-books zombie murder is more entertaining when you're doing it with another human being.
The obsession with currency still grates, but there are some nice touches to the co-op blasting that just about raise Dead on Arrival 2 above the horde.
Despite a bland single-player experience, Dead on Arrival 2's multiplayer is just enough to make it worth a look
