GI: Deadlight Review

GI: Randy Wayne, the protagonist of the “flee from the zombies” game Deadlight, may be little better than the walking dead himself. Styled after early platformers like Jordan Mechner’s original Prince Of Persia, (with a bit of Limbo and Out Of This World thrown in for good measure) Deadlight portrays Randy only in silhouette as he runs across the screen. Even as he tries to escape “shadows,” as the game self-consciously calls the undead, he’s a shadow himself. The visual metaphor is a good one, but the combination of aesthetic and narrative interest doesn’t go much deeper than that. (Deadlight, Xbox 360) -
