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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A este juego le pondria un 8.6 ya que no es perfecto pero es muy entretenido y bueno LE PONGO 10 DEBIDO A LOS ATAQUES DE LOS HATERS QUE LE PONEN 0 SIN NI SIQUIERA HABER TOCADO EL TITULO O TENER UNA PS4
    Estas personas intentan bajar la puntuacion del juego por puro odio
    Historia que te engancha en un inicio y aunque antes de la mitad tas vez se vuelve algo floja por unos minutos luego desde la mitad hasta el final es un suspenso total
    Buenas mecanicas
    Buena ambientacion
    2 errores que me tope en todo el juego, despues de eso es un muy buen juego para amantes de los zombis
    Esperando a que venda mucho para una secuela!!!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is actually a very solid one, when I read reviews from it giving it a 5, a 6 I could not understand how the same people could give a better vote to Anthem, but it happened. So I got curious. The Game has an Amazing Graphic and environment, it is a pleasure to get lost into it, there is always something to do, and while some cry "It is repetitive", well, RDR2 is repetitive, most of the Open world games are, some activities are going to be in this kind of games, but in this game your approach will change depending on the situation, it will vary a lot. It is not a Zombie game, as a matter fact the Freakers are living beings (like I am Legend with Will Smith) and their presence in the game is felt, greatly, you will be places in a situation where you know how to handle them at some point in the first few hours, only to be humbled by a change in the weather and numbers of them, and you will find out that they are very practical hunters if you do not flee or have the means to fight them. The hordes are stuff of nightmares and you will be honestly scared when you face your first one, same goes for the second and third, a small error and you will lose against it. The Day/Night cycle is amazing as the need for scavenging. The world is reach with events and missions that are not necessarily available unless you happen to walk there at the right moment. The weapons and how their quality change their damage output and performance is brilliant, you could have the best weapon in the game but have it in Junk condition, and just be able to barely use it. The crafting is also very interesting and let you stock on materials and items to use later. The bike is not just a movement asset, it does give you bonuses depending also on pieces you install on it. The bad part and reason for not giving a 10: The IA from human enemies is somewhat lacking, which makes the game enjoyable, but would have contributed better to a terror environment if they reacted a little bit more natural when finding a body (if they do that at all), I would have introduced the possibility to carry a corpse to avoid being spotted, alas, that is not in the game. Last bad thing to me is the shooting, it is not the best shooting I have ever had, it could have been better, but it does not tarnish the game. Expand

Just a few design flaws ( realism vs fun gameplay ) weights it down. Refilling gas, reparing the bike etc might be realistic, however it feels like a heavy load kind of making it less fun exploring the open world in the game.

    I just wish it would be more like FC5 or even AC Odyssey with more variety in missions, and more open world than always having to worry to break and refill your ride and guns.
