Review 1 for Dying Light
Looks interesting... but...
There have been many zombie games in the past and only some of them have measured up to the hype. Dead Rising lost favor with 2 but regained it with its newest release, Dead Rising 3. Dead Island had a great marketing plan but failed to expectations. Even Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare did great on release but the excitement died down shortly after. Most of them fail to create the "gamers paradise" that we all search for in a game. Here is the thing, I believe this game can go either way. Now, I have been saying for a long time now that a free running zombie game would be awesome, ever since Mirror's Edge, but to blend all the elements that make a game astounding and worth at least a single gameplay is difficult. Now you can never please everyone, but you can get close. Here are what I think will either make or break this game. First, if the game wants to boast on a free running aspect then it needs to be fairly open world. Now, from the two gameplay vids we have seen, it seems this is going to be the case, but we have only seen one section and my concern is that the rest of the world won't be adequate. (Lets face it, Dead Island was pretty linear) If its anything like Far Cry 3's map then we are in for a good game. Second, the story has to be at least interesting. Most of these games have fun gameplay but lack a story and vice versa, but rarely does a game have an interesting story and fun and immersive gameplay. Let's hope the story accompanies what we have seen in the videos. Third and most important, gameplay mechanics. So far what we've seen looks good. The freeflow system we saw in Mirror's Edge and Brink and the combat from games like Bullet Run and Dead Island seem to be promising, not to mention the traps you can set up, but we will find out what this game is made of on release. I am very hopeful on this one. Please don't prove me wrong, Techland. So, grab your baseball bats, tighten your grip, and get ready to (hopefully) knock it out of the park with Dying Light.

For this game!! I love zombies, I'd rate it 5 stars and more! It may look like dead island games but in a way it obviously serves better purposes, plus the day/night change, AWESOME!

Review 4 for Dying Light

First off, I'd like to say that I was kind of disappointed by Dead Island because the trailer upstaged the game so much. It was not at all a bad game but personally I feel like it didn't hit the mark. I remembered Techland was the developer of Dead Island and when I saw Techland at the beginning of the trailer for Dying Light I felt a bit tentative. The trailer was short and sweet and after watching the gameplay video, I feel absolutely no hesitation towards buying this game. Even in pre-alpha the gameplay looks fantastic! I definitely have high hopes for Dying Light and I can't wait to actually play the game myself.
