About

Dying Light is a first-person action horror game with the elements of survival. It is a first part of the Dying light series followed by Dying Light 2. The game is set in the open-world environment of fictional Harran city. Players are offered to assume the role of an undercover agent Kyle Crane who has been sent in the quarantine zone. His mission is to find the rogue politician Kadir "Rais" Suleiman lost somewhere in the infected giant city. On the way to achieving the goal, Kyle will meet other survivors, who desperately try to stay alive among zombies. The chief game mechanic is running the generators and turning on streetlights throughout Harran to make another part of the map accessible and safe at nighttime. The game features day/night time cycles that change the game remarkably: the action becomes fast-paced, and all the infected people turn into dangerous zombies. Therefore, the gameplay is based on armed combat against mutants and Kyle’s sneak and parkour skill for preventing it.

Dying Light reviews and comments

The story is boring and the final boss is crap, HOWEVER this is the best zombie game out there. Traversal and combat are fantastic and the world is a joy to go through
«Blew my mind»
as someone who seeks good stories and deep characters i couldn't find them in this game but this game is so good at being a game it doesn't matter at all. it is fun, city of harran is well builded and it feels great exploring it. there is always action if you play it right. sometimes it is a hack-and-slash and sometimes it is running from stronger zombies. i would definitely recommend it.
It's is a pretty good zombie game.

At first I thought that it was going to be just another stupid, bad, cliche zombie game. But the inclusion of parkour mechanics and free running really mixed things up a bit. As well as the degradable weapons and weapon attachments. 

The combat mechanics were pretty solid. Both melee and shooting are really good. 

When you crack a head with a hammer or blow it with a bullet or curb stomp a zombie, it fells really satisfactory. (please don't call the police)

The story is a bit cliche, but cliche doesn't mean bad. It's just ok. The obvious focus of this game is the parkour and the combat. The story takes a step back to the rest of the game.

Overall, pretty nice.

«Underrated»
A very boring game that isn’t balanced well. Even after hours you spend playing it, your character isn’t strong enough to fight properly. And this really frustrated me. I can’t enjoy this piece of trash and I don’t want you to suffer like me.

Unlike many zombie games, Dying Light is focused on parkour rather than on shooting, and I think this idea is brilliant. Running and jumping here is very satisfying, really the best part of the gameplay. You also get a lot of content and free DLC - and I bet, you’ll spend many hours playing it. The variety of zombies is also great, it’s nice to fight them or sometimes human. A highly recommended game.
