    Another game that helped redefine 2D gaming.

    What did we have so far? Braid,Limbo, Trine, Bionic Commando, and perhaps a few others I failed to mention. The game takes place in 1986 during the world zombie outbreak. This game has it all, zombies, an intensive... Read Full Review

    Deadlight is a masterpiece

    Deadlight is, mechanically speaking, most similar to the classics Prince of Persia and Flashback, with some elements of the original Oddworld titles.This is a retro zombie horror-show game and I love it. In my opinion t... Read Full Review

    Nice screenshots. Weak gameplay.

    **An over reliance on trial and error.** There are a lot of scripted sequences that you can't get past on your first try. And when you do get past that particular section of the game, there will be yet another cheap... Read Full Review

    Mini-Review

    Deadlight is a very atmospheric experience: its plot serves to tell a simple, yet powerful tale; its visuals are an effective mix of 3D graphics and a 2D sidescroller perspective; the game plays with its colour palette a... Read Full Review

    It reminded me a little of 'The Walking Dead' TV Show, which is a very good thing.

    For my first real, proper game review – you know where you sit down and play, but take notes at the same time, with one of those pen things with the paper and the hand movements – I thought I would go for a game that I c... Read Full Review

    I review many games, and on this one I say:"Its different, give it a try!"

    Firstly this is a different sought of game that allows the player to only see the scene from the side, like a Miniclip flash game except way better. The story is the same-old-same-old and really nothing new at all, in... Read Full Review

    The game has a lot of atmosphere, but is full of bugs and only a few hours long.

    The Good: Excellent atmosphere that draws you in, gorgeous graphics, steady pace makes the game really fun, always being on the run provides a great rush The Bad: Bugs and glitches, awkward controls and mechanics, und... Read Full Review
