Deadlight Review | Dealspwn

Dealspwn: "Part of the issue with Deadlight is that it just has too many competitors who've lit up the 2D side-scrolling genre before. The platforming is just too slapdash and inaccurate to survive in a pool that boasts Shadow Complex and Mirror's Edge 2D amongst its biggest fish.
