Dying Light is one of the games that kicked off 2015 and was easily one of the best AAA games to do so. The thing is, many people didn’t know what to expect from it. Coming from the studio that brought us Dead Island, we all knew it would be open world with tons of flesh-eating monstrosities. But would it be good? Dead Island wasn’t a bad game, but it did have a lot of issues. Dying Light addressed those and even ramped things up with an intense traversal system that made for some fast-paced, adrenaline-filled action. Add that to all of the customization, extensive skill trees, brutal combat, and 4 player drop-in co-op and you have one of the best zombie experiences on the market.
Dying Light included the survival aspect many missed from their zombie games and added in heart-thumping moments that made you wish you never stepped outside. If you missed it before, there is no better time than now to jump in. Just beware the night, there are things that even zombies fear.
