**Spoilers** The new game sweeping the Internet, Dying Light is a video game that was released about a week ago. The game has a zombie survival theme with a little bit of a twist. The twist is that, like Dead Island, it is a first person brawler. Unlike Dead Island, there is a Parkour element of the game.
Parkour is a free moving system where the player gets to jump across buildings and slide under obstacles without losing any speed. This makes for some cool gameplay especially with the day/night system.
In Dying Light you play as Crane, an undercover GRE agent who has gone into Istanbul to locate some documents taken before it turned into zombie central. Upon entering the game, Crane is dropped into group of zombies, known as Biters. While unconscious and unprotected, he is saved by two runners, Amir and Jade. Now saved and at the base of operations called the Tower, Crane is thrown into a world full of monsters, human and nonhuman.
While the story lacks any surprise factor, it can sometimes throw you for a loop. Particularly, when you reveal that the zombie virus is actually from space. With the amazing Parkour feature and brawling system, in the long run you really won’t care. The game also has a customize system for its weapons allowing the player to put fire or electricity on their weapons which either set on fire or stun their enemies.
A lot of the fun comes when the night arrives. Zombies become stronger and faster. The game becomes a life or death scenario, which is supremely scary when 12 zombies are chasing you as you try to get to a safe zone. I had a lot of fun with this game and the multiplayer feature can be extra fun to play with your friends. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a different type of zombie game.
