Dying Light Review

dying light

You can purchase Dying Light at amazon.com

Finally! It is in my possession! Dying Light is by far one of the greatest games I have played in a long time. It has great features that make it fun, energizing, and a good ZOMGIE game. Good games are hard to come by, and good Zombie games are even harder to come by. My standards for a zombie game are pretty high, but this game passed all of my tests with flying colors. So where do I start?
Lets start with the gameplay. I am using my Alienware PC to play this game. My PC has an Intel i7 Core CPU, I have 8 GB of RAM, and I have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card. With all of this being said the game still lags a bit during intense cut scenes or hectic fight scenes. This is not a huge problem because the lag is minor, and it doesn’t really interfere with much of the gameplay. At most I’ve had a 1 – 2 second lag, and it was only during a cut scene so its not like I was getting pulverized by a zombie horde or anything. So, out of all the gameplay I’ve gone through this is the only major issue I could find. Everything else runs smoothly. Scaling walls, beating a zombie’s head in with a pipe, or just talking to other CPUs are flawless. Overall, the gameplay is smooth, and crisp.
But what about actually playing the game? Slow down their cowboy! I was just about to get there. The gameplay is… uh… well… I’d say… IT’S FREAKING AMAZING! Parkour + zombie apocalypse = SUPER FUN! Having the ability to scale walls, and evade zombies’ makes so much more sense to me than spraying and praying. Trying to kill every zombie you see would take too much time and effort. Plus, at night the zombies turn into… well I’ll just let you figure that out for yourself! And to top it all off the time used to kill zombies could be used to find supplies, or get to safety. In Dying Light you can use the time spent on not killing zombies to craft weapons, search for resources, completing missions, and so much more. All of your hard work will pay off once you level up and earn skill points to level up your character. You can learn crazy skills like dodge. This will help you evade zombies, all the more reason not to kill them all. In Dying Light you have the ability to scale walls with ease, jump over walls, or any parkour trick you can imagine. Zombie survival is all about evading, and not about killing. Staying alive is your priority, not killing everything that moves. Overall, I give Dying Light a 9 out of 10. It has great game mechanics, the game runs smoothly, and it’s NOT all about shooting. I have a feeling that this game is going to dominate most of my free time from now until I finish it. So, my recommendation is get the game! It is a great new game for all you zombie lovers, and you also have the option of playing Co-op with your friends. Surviving the zombie apocalypse just got a lot more intense!

Battlefield 4

On October 25, 2011 my video gaming experience was changed forever! For those of that do not remember October 25, 2011 was the day Battlefield 3 was released. This game blew my mind! The frostbite 2 engine in Battlefield 3 opened my eyes to the potential of first person shooters. From the indestructible environment to each gun having its own recoil, Battlefield 3 changed the way I looked at first person shooters. Now Battlefield 4 is going to be released! Hopefully Battlefield 4 will continue to bring in new and entertaining gameplay, but for now we are all stuck at the edges of our seat waiting for this game to be released! Luckily, we have the comfort of the Battlefield 4 demo. By watching the demo I am happy to say that Battlefield 4 will still have amazing graphics, gameplay, and a destroyable environment! Even though the demo is fantastic some questions are still unanswered. For instance what new weapons will be featured? Will the multiplayer be different from Battlefield 3? Will Battlefield 4 fix all of the problems that Battlefield 3 presented? For now we will have to wait, but from the looks of things the wait will be worth while!

    Dead Space 3

    It has been a while since Electronic Arts has announced the release date of Dead Space 3! Coming out on February 5, 2013 and retailing for $59.99, Dead Space 3 will add on to the already fantastic Dead Space series! In general I have never really been a fan of horror games. I usually stick to my first person shooters or my third person RPG games, but about a year ago a friend let me borrow Dead Space 2, and I have to admit it was spectacular! The game kept me at the edge of my seat and I never let go of the controller! I remember one of the intense scenes in the game when then main character Isaac Clarke went into a room and a vision appeared in his head of people in chambers on the wall freaking out! The scene was super intense and got me to spring out of my seat! Dead Space 2 is a very unique game, and is probably the only horror game up to date that I have really enjoyed. Hopefully Dead Space 3 will continue the epic shoot outs and the intense scenes to give the game a feel that no other game can produce! The Dead Space games have tons of action and horror to entertain any Dead Space fan and hopefully the new game modes like co-op will add more fun with your friends!
