Critic Reviews for Deadlight: Director's Cut

Deadlight: Director's Cut looks fantastic and has a very intriguing storyline. Its platforming puzzles are also generally really enjoyable to solve. However, a few annoying gameplay flaws, occasionally awkward controls, and very short running time really take the edge off the experience, and ultimately the game falls short of its considerable potential.

A Director's Cut which adds little to a title anything but perfect, although definitely recommended to those looking for a little bit different zombie game.

A second chance to try Tequila Works’ side-scrolling zombie classic, but not essential if you played the original.

While some of the big criticisms that people had with the original version of the game still stand, Deadlight: Director's Cut still feels like a fresh take on the zombie genre 4 years later. It probably isn't worth a return trip if you've already played the original game, but if this is your first time checking out the Deadlight world then this version is definitely the one to get.

Tequila Works brings its hit indie survival horror game Deadlight, to the PS4 and Xbox One with Deadlight: Director's Cut, but the years haven't been kind.

Rather than mowing down hordes of zombies with a hail of bullets, you’ll be using your environment to outsmart the undead, with the occasional ax to the head of course.

Deadlight Director's Cut is a unique take on survival horror as a side-scrolling platformer and, as such, is a fun experience.

While it fulfils its promise of delivering a much needed edge to the saturated zombie horror scene, Deadlight: Director's Cut is sadly hampered by its clunky combat system and recycled puzzles. Existing players may feel compelled to delve back into the experience as its visuals feel noticeably refined and its survival mode – although flawed – can be addictive in small doses. But although it's brimming with fresh ideas and possesses a compelling atmosphere, it isn't able to stand tall as it rests on a ground of flawed fundamentals.
