Going into release I was actually pretty hyped for this game. An over-the-top shooter with goofy weapons and powers sounded like something right up my alley, but what we got is yet another forgettable entry in the Rage franchise. It does nothing to warrant being brought back from the dead, so I have to ask Bethesda, why bother? Maybe some things are best left in the past.
Days Gone is ultimately a disappointing experience, that could have been much more. I didn’t hate my time with it, and there’s a lot of heart to the experience that I genuinely appreciated, but it falls into the same trappings of too many open world experiences.
This is stealth-lite, a game made for the casual crowd, and on that note, I can’t forgive the game for damaging a series I used to hold dear. The intricacy of past titles is gone, and what is left is an empty shell of what Hitman used to be. Scan the barcode on Agent 47’s head and all you’ll ring up is a package of cheap junk food. Empty calories that wont sustain you for long.
