The game takes place two years following a global pandemic which has wiped out just about everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and rapidly evolving. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, seemingly as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough? [Bend Studios] Expand

    Superb zombie-slaying combat and enjoyable motorcycle gameplay are integrated perfectly with a well-paced story. But the game’s major highlights are the terrifying zombie hordes which are unlike anything seen in a videogame so far.

    Days Gone offers fun open-world exploration and survival-horror gameplay elevated by a compelling post apocalypse narrative and top-notch presentation.

    Days Gone is a grim, beautiful B-movie; its action and writing are full of pulpy thrills, and by the end of it, I found myself liking a character called Deacon St. John – an achievement in itself.

    Although Days Gone is suffering from tons of technical issues and, of course, unbelievably weak AI, it still manages to make up for them by offering solid, diverse gameplay, wonderful atmosphere and world design, and great music and sound design. Let's just hope that Sony gives Bend Studio another chance.

    Days Gone has a couple of fantastic ideas, including the blockbuster horde battles that offer some of the most heart-pounding zombie spectacles I’ve seen yet. Unfortunately, these fantastic moments are fleeting, with generic missions, a messy story, and a plague of technical bugs holding back Days Gone from becoming a zombie-slaying classic.

    Days Gone has moments where it reveals its brilliance, but they’re buried under a litany of uninteresting and repetitive missions and numerous technical issues.

    The game meets the baseline level of quality we might expect from a big-budgeted joint, yet it remains a tiresome, empty experience.

    DAYS GONE – a breath of fresh air in its genre. I have long wanted to plunge into the World as the plot of the series the Walking dead. SoDAYS GONE – a breath of fresh air in its genre. I have long wanted to plunge into the World as the plot of the series the Walking dead. So far, only the first hours of the game, and I'm absolutely delighted. The plot unfolds without haste, the hero is interesting, he wants to empathize. You want to live with him this way. And of course his bike! This is a separate topic for discussion. Thank you Sony for another interesting plot game. Expand

    Good game, great mechanics, great graphics, interresting story, i don´t see why a lot of people mention so many bugs and bad framerate, imGood game, great mechanics, great graphics, interresting story, i don´t see why a lot of people mention so many bugs and bad framerate, im playing in ps4 pro with the 1.07 patch aplied and woks alright, yes, it has some bugs here and there... like almos every other open world game, incluiding red dead redemtion 2, and far less than witcher 3 (on console at least), the game can be repetitive and slow paced at times... like every other open world games ( i fall asleep while playing red dead 2 and witcher a couple of times while traveling to a far location or doing a task that i was doing 10 times before), is not perfect, that´s why im giving it a solid 8.0/10, the game tends to be too easy even in the hard difficult, and afther played sekiro every game end up too easy, you know what i mean, but even then, try this up, it deserved it Expand
