Dying Light: The Following Reviews
A big 'ol chunk of game with a lot of things to do, and just as importantly, new ways to do them.
Dying Light: The Following manages to include a new fun-filled environment to explore along with a vehicle to do so that mesh together well with a story that's slow to start but ends with a powerful punch.
Dying Light's outdoorsy expansion flees the city but delivers the same mix of dogged charm and compulsion.
Just like the original Dying Light, nothing works quite as well as it should and although there are some interesting new ideas here none of them are realised without significant flaws.
Dying Light's latest DLC supplements the full game's first-person parkour with customizable dirt buggies, drastically different environments, and a conspiracy-driven mystery.
A sprawling, satisfying expansion to an already good game.
Dying Light: The Following adds a whole new countryside to the zombie infested Harran and a brand-new buggy to ride across it. It's a strong expansion to a great game, continuing the original game's survival aspects into a new, open arena. This is almost a different game hidden in DLC.
With an overly competitive market of zombie games such as Dead Island, Dead Rising, and Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Dying Light: The Following steals the show for being a well-rounded zombie action game, featuring tight combat and a knack for intense storytelling that is sure to leave you shaking at the edge of your seat. Regardless of a few underlying faults with character development and the occasional fetch quests, Dying Light: The Following is undoubtedly among the best story-mode expansions I have ever played. I can’t wait to continue my exploration and see what else Techland have up their sleeves.
The Following was larger than I expected, and it maintains a high level of quality throughout. Being pared down from the bloat of Dying Light earns it more moment-to-moment excitement, and I greedily consumed it over the weekend. The last few minutes have me pondering the future of what's clearly going to become a franchise, and I'm ready for whatever Techland brings next.

Completely changing the environment that you play in and the way in which you get around that world was a bold move by Techland, but they've taken the challenge in their stride, and created something which is often just pure fun to play. If you're a fan of Dying Light, then The Following is a near essential expansion.
A massive expansion that brings Dying Light up to date and, in addition, gives us the opportunity to relive our zombie-killing adventures in a much more open and colorful environment.

The Following is extensive, exciting, lasts 20-25 hours and adds to the main game many new elements, while losing something (parkour) with the addition of vehicle and not excelling in AI enemy of humans.

The Following is a huge expansion that swaps the ruined city for the rugged countryside, but loses none of the desperate thrills of the original campaign.
Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition offers so much more than what the base game did, while also improving upon the already solid base game at the same time. This is easily the definitive way to play Dying Light.
The buggy, like the rooftops, is a temporary form of safety. All of the enhancements in the latest edition – new loot, new levels, new end-game excess – are icing on the cake. Dying Light is about creating moments of safety, empowerment and comedic triumph in a world that wants nothing more than to tear you down, and The Following is a perfect expansion of that central tenet.
Dying Light: The Following takes a gaming great and gives you the ability to drive a buggy over zombie piles on top of it all. A true expansion, The Following provides players with an all new area of Harran to explore, new game features and items, and the ability to drive a vehicle and level your skills as a driver and a runner. Even with a fairly high number of issues and drawbacks, the quality is far and above anything negative the expansion carries with it. A drastic departure from the original that manages to maintain all of the charm and character that makes Dying Light a flickering flame worth protecting, The Following is a must own for all.
The Following expansion for Dying Light breathes new life into the year-old parkour FPS zombie game by adding a dune buggy and a huge new map to explore.
The Following is a powerful and well-made expansion, if considered individually, or an even gigantic experience if purchased with the full game, in the Enhanced Edition. The introduction of the Buggy does not obscure the gameplay of Dying Light but is still very well cared for, as well as consistent with the original spirit.

With an expansive map, a multitude of zombies to kill and a competent if not compelling plot, The Following is a terrific complement to your Dying Light collection.
