What do you think of Killing Floor 2? Is it worth the time and money?

Not interested. It just lacks atmosphere. I'm sure it's going to be a fun game but it just doesn't offer the stuff I like about KFmod i. e. the horror elements.

I caved and bought it. It is pretty good, I'll say it is subjectively better than KF1. I'm not gonna lie, I think KF2 has more atmosphere than KF1 too  :D

Some things to note are:

- The new gore system is lovely. The splatterhouse effects can be turned down if need be. Consistent shots to the same area will visibly deteriorate said area. Dismemberment is a thing now!

 - The knife still makes you run faster, BUT they've also included a sprinting mechanic. From what I've noticed there's no stamina so you can sprint indefinitely, and the speed boost is negligible. It's equivalent to going from a decent walking speed to full-on Olympic running through thick molasses.

 - The trader is no longer a living breathing entity, it's a futuristic vending machine. Literally.

 - Since it's in Early Access on Steam, there are 4 classes (Berserker, Commando, Support, Medic) and 3 maps (BurningParis, Outpost, and BioticsLab) one of which is apparently a remake but I'm confident to say it is completely different.

 - There are three new zeds. Cyst which is a reskinned Clot, and Slasher which is a faster reskinned Clot. Hans Volter is the new Patriarch and is basically an old man in an exoskeleton. Yay.

Dismemberment (Morph Targets) are in UT3 so shooting vehicles bits break off.  Also available in UDK and fairly easy to do, and I agree makes the whole process of shooting up a monster more satisfying.  ;D
