Forbes: Dying Light is a little bit like Dark Souls.
For instance, you can be invaded by other players, just like in Dark Souls—the challenging action-RPG from Japanese game developer From Software. In Dying Light, these invaders take the shape of a special, powerful zombie.
And just like in Dark Souls, your combat actions are dictated by a draining stamina bar.
As you hack and slash away at zombies in the fictional Middle-Eastern city of Harran, you’ll often find yourself out of breath, having to back away to let your stamina bar refill.
Considering the fact that zombies take quite a few hits to bring down—though perhaps not quite so many as the walking dead in Ubisoft’s Wii U exclusive ZombiU, a game that also reminded me of Dark Souls a bit—you often find yourself on the defensive, at least early on in the game.
And that, dear reader, is about as far as I’ll run with the Dark Souls comparisons.
