Helldivers 2

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Helldivers II roars onto the scene with impressive gunplay, a hilariously chaotic co-op experience, and satisfying moment-to-moment action. While some critics note initial technical troubles and limited content, most agree it’s a blast with friends, offering strategic depth and enough laughs (and explosions) to make you feel like a true Starship Trooper. Just be sure you have a squad ready to dive into the mayhem because public matchmaking needs further polish.

8/10

A game that has more bugs than it intended but still produces a standout experience. Helldivers 2 gives scale and gravitas to alien warfare in good old-fashioned multiplayer fun.

Recommended

Impeccable action and clever details make this a rare breed of live service co-op shooter, where the focus lies squarely on laughter instead of racking up loot.

8/10

Helldivers 2 is the third-person Starship Troopers title that never was, which means that if you’ve been looking for an excuse to get into a bug fight, it’s absolutely worth picking up the title so you can do your part to stop the alien menace.
