Hi guys! Today I will talk about Dying Light Enhanced Edition. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The first thing I have to say is about the story of Dying Light is that it’s a good one. The voice acting is amazing, and the protagonist’s character is interesting, and he makes the story that much more enjoyable.
Dying Light’s story takes place in Harran where a mysterious viral outbreak turns most of the citizens in zombies like creatures that are very aggressive and attack humans.
You play as Kyle Crane, an agent who is hired by an organization called GRE and his mission is to infiltrate Harran and retrieve a sensitive file stolen by an individual named Kadir Suleiman.
I won’t say anything more about the story. I think that’s enough for you to understand the premise of the game.
Now let’s talk about the game’s mechanics.
First, I have to say that the game is in first-person view. Dying Light introduces a very exciting parkour system that helps you traverse through the city without having to walk through the streets since the streets are filled with zombies.
The parkour system is truly amazing, one of the best parkour systems I have seen and on par with Assassin Creed’s parkour system.
Traversing the city using parkour is one of the best experiences I have had in a game.
Now that the parkour is out of the way let’s talk about the combat.
In this game, every weapon that you use can be crafted and it has a level of durability, the higher the level the longer it takes for the weapon to get destroyed.
You have to fix the weapons that are destroyed to be able to use them again and that makes you think if it’s worth fighting in certain scenarios because each weapon can be repaired a limited number of times.
Once you use all the repairs you won’t be able to use that weapon again, except if you do some tasks in the game that will give you more repairs to your weapons if your number of repairs is 0 (I have never done those tasks).
The combat is well thought, and it takes skill to master the combat of Dying Light.
There are also skills that you unlock using points that you gain through playing the game and surviving, fighting, or traversing through the map, meaning that the more you do these things the more points you will get and you will be able to unlock abilities.
The game has co-op mode for up to 4 players co-op. I played the game with a friend and I recommend you do the same, not because the game is extremely difficult (by the way the game is indeed challenging, I played it in nightmare difficulty which is the hardest possible) but because it’s more fun that way.
I personally believe that survival games aren’t fun to play solo, that is my opinion and honestly, when I don’t play with a friend, I don’t feel like playing these kinds of games.
The graphics of Dying Light are outstanding, even after 4 years the graphics are on par with games released this year.
Harran looks beautiful during the day and during the night you feel the danger in every corner, which is something that is a must for a survival horror game.
There are a lot of outfits you can choose from, some are unlockable through playing the game and some you must buy separately using real money, not that you see much of your character, so outfits are more meaningful when you play with
Dying Light Enhanced Edition is a very good game for those that like survival horror games and I am sure you won’t regret buying it.
I have to say that I recommend buying the game when it is on sale since in a year Dying Light 2 will be released and I don’t think it’s a good idea to pay full price for a 4-year game.
I also recommend playing the game with a friend, but if you have no problem playing alone then who am I to get in the way.
General Rating: 8.9
