helldivers 2 Review

The first thing that Helldivers 2 sets out to do is instantly captivate with its brutal new mix of relentless action, deep strategy, and biting satire. This game is a testament to what cooperative shooters can achieve if they dare to merge traditional underpinnings of gripping gunplay with a thought-provoking narrative. This game is a follow-up to the classic “Helldivers” which was released in 2015. Helldivers is made available to play for both PlayStation gamers and PC gamers.  Now, let’s dive a little deeper into our experience with Helldivers 2, pointing out its highlights and flaws.

A Universe Brimming with Satire

The world of Helldivers 2 is a satirical masterpiece, ribbing the militant mania of classic 90’s sci-fi with every single mission. We could not help but smile at the red-hot patriotism of members of this “managed democracy,” whose task is nothing less than the liberation of the galaxy. The thematic choice they made really did add a rich layer of humor to our play experience, making every mission feel almost as if it were part of some bigger, tongue-in-cheek critique on imperialism and militarism.

The Essence of Teamwork

At its core, Helldivers 2 champions cooperative play. Every mission calls for a strategy with teammates, and decisions at every move—which could mean life and death at the speed of light. The game further implements a Stratagem system, which allows calling in all kinds of support—from airstrikes to supply drops—that adds a very noticeable tactical layer to the operations. Mastering these tools and coordinating their use with our equally tough squad was the next step.

Diverse Combat Scenarios

The battles in Helldivers are set up as something fast-paced, from quick alien bugs to huge hulking mechanical behemoths. Each encounter with the enemy is something that bustles the player to apply a strategy different from the previous one at a given moment. The weapons here had dynamic recoil and a sense of real weight in your arms; every shot and every kill felt powerful. This level of detail down to the mechanics of the fight ensured that each and every fight was exciting.

A Rich Arsenal at Our Disposal

Helldivers 2 promises an expanded arsenal and equipment, each offering new tactical options. Much of the game was trial and error with different load-outs to see what combinations proved most useful for the different mission types. The thrill of acquiring new stratagems and weapons kept us engaged, wondering how the fortunes of war would change.

Challenges Along the Way

However, with all these strengths came some weaknesses. But, in reality, besides the times when there were connectivity problems really put a wrinkle in the gameplay, the only true downside was that, over time, it seemed like there had to be some repetition of the game’s core loop. However, the setup started becoming repetitive only after having continuous extensive hours of gameplay. With the number of missions and the types of enemies that it presents, you don’t have to worry about boredom unless you are glued to your PS5 all day. If they fix the connectivity issues and bugs in this game then this would be really a big deal.


A Stellar Cooperative Experience On the whole, Helldivers 2 represents an excellent testament to what is possible within the co-op shooter genre. The satirical story links together powerfully with issues with connectivity being the only major downside (which could be fixed anytime soon). For all game addicts expecting to play an exciting, action-packed strategic game with lots of humor, Helldivers 2 has opened its doors for one more mission. It brings so many players together, not just for a common cause but to fight through adversity with laughs and strategy; it speaks to a design and vision. Helldivers 2 is not so much a game as it is a collaborative experience that is inspiring, entertaining, and at times frustrating, yet manages to leave you insatiably yearning for that one more mission.”
