Developer Techland has combined two of my favourite games – Left 4 Dead and Mirror’s Edge – into one zombie-filled parkour-running package called Dying Light. There are also elements of something like Dead Island, where the point is to make supply runs, but with Dying Light‘s dynamic day-and-night cycle, you want to make sure you can hop, skip and jump back home before the sun goes down and the dead get really riled up. The gameplay looks pretty cool, and I enjoyed all of the games that Dying Light seems to be borrowing from, so I’ll probably give this a look. But that being said, I already own Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, and Mirror’s Edge. Techland’s going to have to give me at least one cool new thing to convince me that their game is better than the previous three I mentioned.
