New Obession: Killing Floor 2

games_kf2_logoThis is why I love having a PS Plus membership, you get games like this for free! Well, sort of.

Killing Floor 2 is an FPS game that came out last year and was one of this month’s free games for those with PS Plus memberships.

In the game, Europe has been overrun by deformed clones known as Zeds. Most of the remaining survivors of the outbreak have fled or hidden, but a group of unlikely heroes have stepped up to fight the hordes.

You have three choices when it comes to how many waves you dare to take on. Your options are four waves, seven waves or ten waves. After defeating a wave, you have one minute to buy and upgrade your gear and prepare for the next wave.

After you have taken out all of the waves, you go up against a boss.

There are ten different perks to pick from. These perks determine what weapons you start off with and give you different bonuses. As you level up your perk you unlock more bonuses and skills to give you an edge. You can change your perk anytime you want, but I have stuck with Berserker for no reason at all.

The other character is Reverend Alberts. Why? Because he has answered my prayers, he is Scottish! This is a pet peeve of mine and I know it might sound silly, but I have always been annoyed by the lack of Scottish characters in games. There are a lot of English characters, but few Scots.

I started playing Killing Floor 2 a few days ago and I am now hooked. Funny thing is, I don’t exactly know why. Ever since I started slicing up Zeds the game clicked with me.

If I had to guess, it’s probably because of the rapid fire gameplay that forces you to pay attention or get ripped to shreds. The references to Shawn of the Dead and Monty Python And Holy Grail are a nice touch.

If you have a PS Plus membership, you need to play this game, its a hell of a good time!
