Amazing Horror Game
Can't wait until this game comes out is just like the last of us a the creators of the games are the creators of dead island.
A great game overall
One of this game's mainly pointed out features before release was the day to night cycle, and the drastic changes the world would undergo after the sun went down. However I found that these transformations were not nearly as scary or drastic as some would have you believe. In fact, all you really have to do to avoid the tougher zombies that hunt you at night, is stay on the rooftops, or find a building that you can enter and shut the door behind you, as from my experience with playing the game, they can't open doors. The graphics also aren't as good as pre-release hype had me believing. There are also, as stated multiple times in Angry Joe's review of the game, many cliches. However, the tropes and cliches didn't bother me all that much since I was too distracted by how fun gameplay can be. There is a large amount of upgrades available that are extremely accessible, however, not too accessible as to make the game too easy. But if you spend your time wisely, you can pretty much kill the strongest enemies just as easily as the weakest ones about half or three quarters of the way through the game. The great part is that even though the story may be lacking excitement and inspiration or originality at any level, the extremely fun gameplay can hold up the game. If the parkour and combat, as well as weapon selections, weapon mods, and side missions weren't as well done and entertaining, this game would barely be worth one's time. Another con is the ending, in which you speak to a character after retrieving research you have just learned, through interaction with the aforementioned character, can bring a major breakthrough in curing the virus that caused the outbreak. You then tell him that you will talk about it next time you see him. This makes no sense considering the game just ends there. You'd think bringing him the research would be the first thing to do right then considering he's also in the quarantine zone, but the developers just leave you to spend the rest of your time running around killing things with the research that can save the area casually sitting in your back pocket I may be mistaken however, since I have not been to see that character since the end of the game. There could possibly be some sort of hidden dialogue that further brings the story to a resolution or a more sensible conclusion or aftermath. In conclusion This wasn't exactly the most well thought out or original new releases, but it is definitely worth one's time.
missing "MY" favorite factor ....
just like far cry dead island etc. this game in my opinion needs a 3rd person setting ! the companies are so busy trying to compete with each other now with the mighty ((( PS4 ))) being out that games are like taking forever to produce and release ... ANYWAY I sure would like a 3rd person setting , because by he looks of it they covered everything else pretty well !
they may as well name this game "kiss my butt and call it a love story" because that's about as close as it will get to my console ...
Going to be amazing!
Ok, first of all, many people dislike this beacuse it's like dead island. I don't know about you, but i had a ton loads of fun with friends in dead island and fighting off the undead. AND now, parkour with zombies!! AMAZING!! Mirrors edge was a favorite of mine,because no other game moved as smoothly. Now, combine my two favorite things, zombies and parkour= Dying Light. It's going to be a huge success, can't wait for it!
A smooth zombie slaying adventure!
When I picked up Dying Light I did not have that much hype for it, but what I found when I popped the disc in my Ps4 was a game way better than I expected. The parkour in the game is smooth and makes for some of the best first person movement I have ever experienced in a game. Combat is fast paced and well balanced with light weapons and heavy weapons with a stamina bar that limits and appropriately balances the way you attack. Story is interesting although not groundbreaking. The dangers of the night on the game are horrific and lead to some awesome/panicky situations when trying to escape the undead. All in all the game looks great, sounds great, and plays great which has been missing in a lot of AAA titles lately. In my opinion Dying Light is a must-play game this year already!
Not what I thought it was going to be
I'm going to start off saying that the idea of this game had potential. The story seemed like a great concept of trying to bring a different type of zombie game to gamers which was different from the Dead Island games. I thought the idea of being able to use the whole environment to get away from the hordes of the undead was a good idea. Then I started to play the game.
I don't know what more I can say about it other than the graphics are pretty good and there's a decent story to the game. However, the controls are just awful and seem to lag just a little bit when you sit there and press the buttons. I was really looking forward to this game and I was really let down. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it and I will be returning it for a refund.
I really wouldn't recommend this to a lot of people just based on the price. In my opinion this game really isn't worth the $60 it would be for full price. If you are really interested in playing it then wait for a price drop or borrow it from someone.
I don't know why this game got rated a 7 it shouldn't even be that low in my opinion. The graphics are brilliant and the game play is smooth. The parkour puts assassins creed to shame. And the realism is there for me. The zombies act like zombies for once in a game. They horde you try anything to go after you I love it. So if you want a good solid zombie game get this.
If you liked Dead Island...
So far, I'm really enjoying this game. It's easy to waste hours scavenging the different locations for supplies and loot. There are a lot of side missions with varying difficulty levels which makes it that much more enjoyable. The day/night cycles add a cool element to the game play also - racing against the clock to get to a safe zone before nightfall can get the adrenaline pumping. The sound engineering was done well - I have this running through a 5.1 channel surround system and frequently find myself turning around because I hear a noise behind me. The number of zombies on screen at any given time doesn't even seem to challenge the hardware, however for a next-get system, I expected a more significant improvement graphically - I believe a lot of the sample videos are from the PC version which is much more impressive than the console versions. Overall, if you enjoyed the Dead Island games, this is one I would recommend. Lots of blood; lots of gore; lots of fun.
Zombies aren't Dead yet....sort of
I understand the zombie genre has been pretty heavily exploited, however, this game plays the zombie angle while succesfully managing a great crafting system, character interactions, awesome parkour, and great combat. PROS: 1.Combat is fun and exciting.If you liked Skyrim Melee, you will love this 2. Parkour is clumsy and difficult at first by design, but eventually evolves into a great system I hope other games will look to as an example. 3. crafting system is good not great, but the weapons you get to use are pretty dang fun. 4. Side missions are awesome. I have spend hours off the main storyline (which is whatever) going off and doing quests that usually have interesting story arks reminiscent of the side missions in Skyrim CONS. 1. Voice acting is hit or miss. Some cringe worth dialogue are sprinkled throughout. 2. Story is "eh". 3. So far, dlc has been lame. Verdict: Buy this game, but wait for used. I would say 49.99 is a great value.
A great surprise to me.
I thought going into this game that its just like dead island. I was wrong. The gameplay is similar to dead island but is so much smoother and much more fun. Plus the story is actually good compared to Dead island. And all the hoards of zombies and sounds makes me feel like im in Atlanta In Season 1 of The Walking Dead. The parkour is smooth for the most part and very fun. Combat is great but only with about 2 to 3 zombies at a time. Anymore you are in trouble. And oh my goodness...... the night time is done soooooooooo well. It makes me not want to go out and dread going out like some characters. I play with the flashlight off too at night until I hear something I don't like or looking for parkour points. My play style is more avoiding the zombies but when I do get into combat its so fun and worth your time. And theres actually a goof amount of stuff to do in Harran. Overall its a very good game and you can tell that they polished it before releasing it, which last year most games failed at. Cough Unity Cough.
