What’s to Like


The detailed world with awesome graphics

As I played Dying light 2, I noticed how detailed the game world looks.  From the trees in the forest, the rocks on cliffs, to the city buildings and clouds in the sky. 


Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Good leveling and character progression system.


The graphics and texture of the game look great. even the NPCs of the game look good.  Overall, Dying Light 2 has some awesome graphics. 


Fast gameplay

The combat system looks quite brutal but is simple to execute.  You can slash or wound enemies with melee weapons such as axes. katanas, baseball bats, machetes, etc. You can block, dodge, jump over enemies to attack other enemies, parry attacks, and execute finishing maneuvers. All this with a limited stamina gauge.  The performance mode works best with framerates up to 60fps. 


Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Explore a vast city with different environments.


In short, you will have so much fun with the combat in the game.  Great animations.  Your character executes great combat moves.  definitely one of the best reasons you must play Dying Light 2.


Long hours of game time

This game has tons of missions and even more side quests to keep you going.  On average you are looking at up to 80 hours of game time.       



What’s not to Like


Not-so-good storyline

The story is well-acted.  The characters are well-voiced and have some good action scenes and sequences. 


Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Challenging but scary enemies await.


The story though is the least good aspect of the game.  The main storyline is not very interesting.  The story decisions you make are not as impactful, and the character you play is not very interesting. So if you looking for a captivating story, you won’t find it here. 


Bugs & glitches

When you get Dying Light 2 Stay Human, make sure you download the update or patch, otherwise, you’ll be playing a game with a lot of glitches, bugs and game crashes.  After installing the update, the game is a lot better to play. 


Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Chase down enemies as you run and jump on rooftops.


There are some minor issues like the character getting stuck, but the game is still fun.  So before you play the game, download the update.    





Dying Light 2 Stay Human is a great game. It has good graphics, a great combat system, a great leveling, and progression system, and long hours of gaming.  What more do you want from a zombie, open-world, action-adventure game?  


Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Choose your support factions wisely, or they become your enemies.


With the dull storyline and the occasional glitches, it won’t make it to the best game awards.  But it’s still fun to play.  So yes.  I do recommend you get Dying Light 2 Stay Human. That’s it for the Dying Light 2 Stay Human review. If you have any questions, comments, or opinions of the game, you can leave them here below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.  Stay Safe.
