Eurogamer - "A highly accomplished sequel that innovates without losing sight of what made the first one great" - Recommended

PC Gamer - "It's the thrill of severing Skaven limbs or surviving an all-out rush by the Rotblood horde that keeps me invested" - 80/100

We Got This Covered - "Vermintide 2 delights in its violence, a state of constant balance that makes the player feel overwhelmed but in control" - 90/100

GameCrate - "Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is an excellent evolution of the formula set out by its predecessor and offers up some of the most intense, gory, and fast-paced co-op action you can find in any genre" - 80/100

USGamer - "Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a game that still largely stands alone. There are few games that offer up this kind of cooperative experience, meaning FatShark has a chance to innovate without worrying about competition" - 4/5
