Dying Light Review

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!

The zombie infection is spreading like wildfire! Companies like Treyarch and Valve are famous for their zombie games, but now Techland is joining in on the zombie mayhem. Dying Light is no ordinary zombie shooter. In fact Dying Light is geared towards survival, and “not” killing every zombie you see. Guns are loud, resource hogs, and heavy. This makes you think “should I shoot, or should I leave with my life?” Dying Light also has another trick up its sleeve when it comes to playing the survival game. Unlike the all-famous Arma 2 Mod, DayZ, Dying Light is not just about gathering supplies to stay alive. Dying Light turns survival into a parkour adventure. You can climb poles, buildings, vehicles, etc! It’s not just about running around on the ground looking for weapons and supplies anymore. Now it’s about staying alive with the resources that you have, and the skills that you’ve learned. You can use these skills on missions. You earn XP that you can use to upgrade skills such as dodging. Zombie games have become extremely repetitive for the past few years now. Most of the zombie games are about guns, guns, and guns. The bigger the gun the easier it is to survive, but that is not always the case. Sometimes your guns cannot save you from a sticky situation, and running away is your only option. Dying Light is a fresh new game that reinvents the way we look at zombie survival. Dying Light will come out on January 27, 2015, and will be $59.99 MSRP.
