"Dying Light is a new franchise from Techland. The new release holds many strong resemblances to Techland's other major franchise, Dead Island, though Dying Light seems to purposely take itself much more serious in both gameplay and narrative. This results in less comic book style fights and gives players more reasons to fear waves of enemies and night time exploration. On the other hand, the dark toned storyline falls laughably flat early on and makes sitting through cutscenes more a chore than a pleasurable experience. Dying Light is still a fun game to play, but it definitely has some issues."
