Deadlight: Director's Cut
Top Critic Average
I liked playing this one for my Deadlight: Director’s Cut review. It was a linear game but is very enjoyable. It’s going to take some extra work for me to get that Platinum added to my collection, but the core experience is solid and fun, so that won’t be a problem. You should definitely check this one out on PS4 for the definitive version of Deadlight!
If you’re a die-hard fan of Deadlight, then you probably don’t even need to read a review to know whether or not to buy it, you’ll just do it anyway. For everyone else, this is an average game that has been surpassed in the years since it came out. There are far better 2D platformers available. You can give this one a miss.
Deadlight: Director’s Cut is the best version of a decent game. It’s sorted some of the technical issues the original had, but fails to improve upon the base as much as you’d like. It’s an uneven experience, with the opening act being far superior to the rest of the game. Although its additions don’t do much more than fix some cosmetic problems the survival mode does add a level of replayability that some may find addictive.
Deadlight: Director’s Cut is a beautiful yet twisted game that feels confident in its own skin. It’s a game that offers more than slaying the undead, as the amazing art direction and compelling story was enough to keep me invested until the credits rolled. Even with some questionable combat choices and the odd spikes in difficulty, Deadlight is a game that breathes new life into the zombie genre.
A short but unique and fun game that I would recommend to everyone
It's not the longest game, and doesn't offer anything that will be remembered as a classic game by any means, but the tense atmosphere, striking art style, and challenge, will surely help this game find itself a niche.
This Director�s Cut is able to perfect the already excellent Tequila Works game, by adding a series of graphic effects that can fit the current console standards. New lights, new animations make the zombie world more �lively�, and oppressive. Gameplay and storyline remain unchanged, excepted from the new Survival Mode, which cannot stand against a very limited longevity though. Nevertheless, Deadlight is a game not to be missed.

Deadlight is a unique game that boasts a lot of great ideas and atmosphere. This new version does what it needs to have the remaster moniker attached to its name, but I don’t see compelling reasons to revisit it. For those that have never experienced it before, it is definitely worth checking out, if for nothing else but the aesthetic alone.
Deadlight: Director's Cut is worth a look if you're new to this post-apocalyptic tale. However, if you've already played through the game in its original state, there's little reason to return.
Deadlight Director’s Cut combines classic puzzle platforming fun with an artistic direction and story that is able to create a bleak atmosphere.
