Dying Light First Impression

I hate when I’m right about a game. I knew Dying Light was nothing, but another Dead Island game, but is it worth it? Read on to find out what I think of my first few hours spent in Dying Light.

Dying Light is made by the same company that brought us the Dead Island games. As soon as I started playing the game it felt just like Dead Island with better controls and really, really good graphics. I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed because I was hoping for something different than another Dead Island game.

Dying Light is different than Dead Island, but so far it’s really not different enough to be called anything other than another Dead Island game with a touch of Mirrors Edge. I played Dying Light on the PC at max settings and the game is absolutely beautiful. The zombies look great, and environments are gorgeous.

If you’ve played any Dead Island game than you’ll be right at home with the gameplay of Dying Light. They are completely identical in almost every way. The way you open a door or loot a container is the exact same way that you do it in Dead Island.

I honestly don’t care too much for the story. The voice acting is dreadful and I’m already skipping dialogue just so I can get back to the good part of the game and start killing shit.

Scavenging for goods is a lot of fun and running from zombies at night is probably the best part of this game right now. Dying Light is a good game, but I’m not completely sold on it yet.

I haven’t touched the multiplayer yet, but I’ll most likely get to that later tonight. If you like gaming with friends and killing zombies than go ahead and get Dying Light. You’ll have a blast and will most likely love the game. If you’re looking for a survival horror game don’t buy the game because that’s not what this is. It’s an action game with a lot of zombies.

Traversing the rooftops is a lot fun. I like how I can level up my abilities in three different categories, but I haven’t really checked out the skill tree yet. I’ve spent most of my time completing quest and exploring the city.

Hopefully I’ll my review of Dying Light up soon, but this seems like it’s a really long game so I doubt I’ll be done with it any time soon.
