Review: Dying Light 2 is an uninspiring zombie-adventure saved by excellent parkour

What starts off as a tense fight for survival in a compelling game world quickly turns into a fairly generic open-world game

Review: Dying Light 2 is an uninspiring zombie-adventure saved by excellent parkour

Dying Light 2: Stay Human feels like it lost its direction somewhere along the way. It begins as an interesting zombie game wherein the threat feels tangible, your character feels weak, and the world feels primed for a dynamic story. However, the further you get into the game, a lot of its early ideas feel sidelined for a generic zombie plot, uninspiring combat, and the absence of any kind of danger.

  • Great parkour mechanics
  • Traversing the city is always fun
  • Poor combat
  • The illusion of choice
  • Mediocre writing
