very interesting, a bit short though

A pretty interesting side scroller. They had me guessing to the end of it. the way they have puzzles set up with zombies coming at you increases the intensity of it The first time around. The highlights of what you can use to jump on interact with are very obscure, so you have to definitely pay attention to your surroundings....especially with zombies coming after you. I just think that the story could be longer and more deep, its just short. But for the price is not too bad.

For $10, Why Not

I got it at a $10 discount for owning it on the 360. While it's still one of my favorite zombie games in terms of story, I feel that the platforming didn't hold up, and some jumping portions were extremely tedious. There's still a sense of danger with the zombies, because two or three can be too much to handlem which is a big plus.

Sequel please.

This game is a work of art, very atmospheric and fun to play. I desperately hope the developers are working on an even better, deeper, and tighter sequel.

Mildly Enjoyable, Not Worth More Than $5

Although a decent amout of fun, Deadlight culminates to a midly enjoyable game that feels more like a demo than a full game. In the end, the horrible controls, short story, unrewarding exploration (and lack thereoff), and glitchy gameplay make Deadlight a disapointment. However, it is a wonderful concept that I hope to see improved upon and polished for a future game.

oh boy......

There are game Ruining glitches in this I encountered. Let's just start with that. At one point somewhere early on. About 20 minutes in. I hit a checkpoint And suddenly I start falling through the floor Endlessly. Upon a full restart of Xbox The checkpoint always loaded in like that, so I had to restart the game for the beginning. The voice acting Is Absolutely horrible at times And mediocre at best. The story is beyond cliched and very rushed. The controls are sluggish like a Prince of persia game, there are parts that require very quick movements Resulting in death after death. With the $20 price point. A 3 hour campaign And half hearted Survival modes thrown in, plus the game breaking bugs I can't recommend this game in AnyWay shape or form. There's very little to enjoy aside from the occasional nice view.
