STORY: The story of Dying Light is kinda like your typical zombie stories where it begins with an infection of a unknown virus or pathogen but Dying Light made a good version of their own with their story presentation. You start as a man named Kyle Crane who`s mission is to retrieve a stolen file inside a zombie or should I say "Infected" filled city called Harran where in a mysterious pathogen infected most of the population. Sounds boring on paper but the real fun starts when you get to meet the cast of Dying Light and as well as the part where you do the parkour stuff which is really fun. Believe me, the story is really good and interesting but somewhat predictable for some people who plays zombie games or watch zombie related movies and stuff. GAMEPLAY: The gameplay of dying light is rather similar to Dead Island but with alot more tweaks and new stuff like the game`s famous feature: parkour. As Kyle Crane, you travel throughout the city of Harran with your awesome stunts, slides, jumps, rolls and climbs but that`s not where the exciting stuff happens. The game has a system (Not completely new to the gamers eyes but... ) called Day/ Night System where in at day, you are the hunter. The zombies walk slow and they seem to be quite inactive most of the times (unless you made a sound which attracts them) but when night falls, that`s where those crazy things happen. At night, the zombies become much more formidable, the are faster, they can climb, they can run, they can call the others to help them eat you. Not only the regular biters become stronger, certain zombies also appear at night and one perfect example is the "Volatile" or Nightmares which the locals call them. These "Volatiles" are much more stronger than your regular ones and once they spot you at night, prepare for a run for your lives. Dying Light also implements an RPG styled mechanics such as the Skill Tree System where in you can invest points earned through three categories (Survivor, Agility and Power) to enhance Kyle`s abilities. The game also features a crafting (weapons have durability...) and weapon ranking system where in you can craft your own items and equipment as long as you have the materials to spare. The controls are tight and it might take a while before you get used to it but it`s worth every second since you`ll be enjoying your time in Harran with all the things you can do such as Side Quests, Challenges and Co-op. MUSIC: Dying Light`s music is one of the best in my opinion. It really fits the theme and it gives you that atmosphere you need to feel in certain events and locations. FUN FACTOR: Running, jumping and climbing for your lives solo or with a friend is truly an enjoyable experience especially if you attracted those "Volatiles" at night just to have some fun. Dying Light is a really fun experienece whether you`re playing solo or with a friend (Which doubles or triples the fun) with all those zombie bashing, hacking, kicking and punching. The Open world city of Harran is also fun to explore and there are alot of easter eggs to discover. The "Be The Zombie" mode (thank God they added it to all the game copies) is another fun experience but also frustrating at some points since it is competitive and challenging. In "Be The Zombie" mode, you play as a super powered spider man like zombie and you invade other people`s games (when their game is at night time) and try to kill them (10 times, doesn`t matter who) before they destroy 5 of your hives. And if you`re playing as the humans and someone invaded your game, you need to destroy the hives and prevent the "Night Hunter: (The super powered spider man like zombie) from killing you or your co-op buddies to win. So far, Dying Light is FUN in some ways and also frustrating at times but so far a very good game especially with friends~ REPLAYABILITY: Dying Light offers 50+ hours of gameplay (If you did all the challenges, side quests, collectibles and exploration) but the fun does not stop when you cleared everything. You can either do the "New Game+" mode where in you start over with all your items and skills intact but the zombies are now much uhhh.. healthier... (more HP) to challenge yourself or do some co-op modes such as the "Be The Zombie" mode or those random co-op objectives that pops out if you`re playing with your co-op buddies in Harran. DLC`s can also extend the experience (which I hate because some important things on the DLC should be included in the game in the first place...) like the upcoming 3 DLCs which is bundled into one Season Pass. SCORE: 8 Cats out of 10 Pros -Parkour~ -Zombie bashing is fun -Smooth gamplay and tight controls -Decent Open World Size (Harran is quite big) -Day and Night changes the game`s atmosphere effectively -Cool weapon upgrades and crafts Cons -Predictable outcomes -Some missions are frustratingly hard -The Zombies/ Infected seem to act quite weird on some points -Weapon Durability, once your fully upgraded uber powered weapon breaks. It`s goodbye weapon...
