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.

    Even with all the promotion we're seeing now, Days Gone still carries the aura of a title that could be miscast and possibly overlooked at a glance, like it was for me a few years ago. You don't know until you play, and this stands as one the more pleasant and satisfying surprises of the year for me. It's been a long road to this game, but the ride is worth it.

    Days Gone is a blend of multiple open-world and zombie games. Even though the gameplay stays pretty much the same throughout the entire game, the acting, riding your motorcycle and the survival bits make this game worth while.

    The game has weak shooting systems and some bad weapons, much like Red Dead Redemption II. But while the other games have been highly rated, Days Gone has had its legs cut out by the bugs.

    The zombie apocalypse is well-trodden territory and the open-world spin of Days Gone can only differentiate it so much. There's a strong narrative focus, but Deacon St. John doesn't carry that weight as deftly as he could. There are highlights and fun tools available within, but the game doesn't push those forward initially, leaving the players to deal with some tedium first. Days Gone is a great foundation for something better though, so hopefully Bend gets the chance to improve upon it.

    Days Gone is an above average open-world game that is brought down by a weak first act, poor shooting, and a lot of 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.

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

    Did not know this game would be this great. thought it was gonna be another Zombie game which I was wrong Because they are all alive but infected.

    I like the graphics, plus the wolves I am very scared of when riding on the road lol

    All 10/10 here from me.

A long non-trivial story and a memorable ending. I've played a lot of games and this is the first one I wanted to rate on Metacritic. I sincerely don't understand why the game didn't become popular, because it's not inferior to competitors. Expand
