The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps - or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living. You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.

    YOUR CHOICES, YOUR WORLD
    You must make tough decisions and hard sacrifices as you decide the fate of a society on the brink of collapse. The effect of the choices you make will have a huge impact on entire regions of the city, uncovering new land masses and areas to explore. Play the entire campaign in up to four-player co-op. Host your own games or join other players' and see how their choices have played out differently to your own.

    EXCEPTIONAL AGILITY AND BRUTAL COMBAT
    On your journey from humble beginnings to a person of great power, you have unprecedented freedom of movement across the city, seamlessly integrated with brutal first person combat.

    A MODERN DARK AGE
    In a desperate city, where resources and power are scarce, unstable, and trust in ruling bodies is all but eroded; humankind has reverted to a dark age. Civilization is gone but the relics are still there. This is a violent, primal & unforgiving world - and so are its inhabitants.

    THE INFECTION HAS EVOLVED
    The infection has evolved and become more sensitive to UV light. Society exists in the relative safety of sunlight, while the infected hide in the shadows of buildings. At night the infected roam the streets freely searching for prey, presenting opportunities for you to explore areas of the city inaccessible by day.

    My final thoughts on my overall experience with Dying Light 2: Stay Human remains positive. Seeing some coverage come out and be turned off by the bugs and issues that were pre-release was expected, but disappointing since I had faith that Techland would stay true to the fans and make sure the experience is covered top to bottom with prime support for the players and community. I commend the entire development team including Lead Designer Tymon Smektala for being engaged with the community leading to the release and listening to what they all have to say. It shows in the final release and look forward to spending even more hours in Villedor for years to come.

    Dying Light 2 is a bigger and bolder sequel that improves upon the original in every way. Not only does it have one of the most enjoyable traversal systems in any game ever, but it also provides players with interesting characters and quests to break up all the running.

    Dying Light 2: Stay Human isn't a revolution as the first game, but it is a solid entry with hours and hours of content, although probably not as long as 500 hours. It has everything it needs to become a game that fans are going to love.

    With a significantly improved movement system, an engrossing, branching narrative, and an open world that's consistently engaging, Dying Light 2 was well worth the extended wait.

    It's been a long time coming, but finally the Dying Light sequel is here. The parkour is refined, the combat is great and the city is lively enough to keep you entertained for a long time. There is also plenty to do in the game, but at the same time it is mainly more of the same without really big innovative steps forward. The first few hours are also disappointing and the visual modes do not offer a best of both worlds standard. A fine sequel, but perhaps a victim of too high expectations.

    As with the original game, Dying Light 2 Stay Human will find its share of audience, while the teams at Techland will continue to expand their vision. The solid base is already there, and it would be interesting to see how the game will turn out in 5 years time.

    If you’ve played a zombie game in the past decade, this mishmash of tattered post-apocalyptic stereotypes will feel all too familiar.

    While not being a flawless masterpiece, the game is just a ton of fun, plot and content that makes you stick to the screen for hours on andWhile not being a flawless masterpiece, the game is just a ton of fun, plot and content that makes you stick to the screen for hours on and on.

    I have to admit at first I was quite disappointed. While in PS5 I have encountered relatively few bugs (none game breaking) I missed the tense and claustrofobic feel of DL1. I am a huge fan of survival horror jaunra, and DL2 bright, unreal setting didn't really sit well with me. But after being nearly half of the story into, I do have to say that new mechanics and the world eventually wore me down. Further into game the original zombie horror vibes are being brought back (VNC tower mission my favourite so far!) and the games mechanics like parkour and combat are feeling great again just like they used to DL1 Music is a small masterpiece on its own.

    By that I wish to say : if You did not like the game in the first few hours - I get it, it takes some time getting used to - but when it sticks the landing, it sticks hard. I myself have been mostly frustrated for the first few hours (despite being a huge DL1 fan) now I am writing this review at 5.30 in the morning because I got so invested in the story and parkouring around the city. Eeven despite it obvious flaws (however surprisingly the story and characters are quite entertaining and believable in my opinion so far :) )

    I would have given game an 8 but I give it one extra point to balance out a bit the review bombing concerning certain language. Shame on You guys, seriously giving game an 0 because it lacks dubbing in your language?

    This is a fairly fun first person parkour open world game. The story wasn’t very gripping though and the combat felt pretty one dimensional.

    Really feels like a downgrade from the first game and even the Dead Island series. The lack of co-op progression is major let down. Cut scenesReally feels like a downgrade from the first game and even the Dead Island series. The lack of co-op progression is major let down. Cut scenes are very glitchy and the voice acting is very bad, you can tell everything was read off a sheet and the voice actor was not watching what was happening on screen also the accents are all over the place and it feels like English was not the native language of a lot of the voice actors. Overall really let down with this game so far. Expand
