Review: Days Gone rarely makes the case for its own existence

Days Gone is far from the worst specimen of its genre but in a year already packed with 50 hour+ endeavours, it rarely makes the case for its own existence.

  • A handsome recreation of Oregon
  • An appealing focus on the motorbike
  • Tedious mission design
  • A totally uninspiring protagonist
  • Chronic shortage of substantial new ideas
