I seem to be saying this more and more these days but I honestly can’t tell whether I am just terrible at games now that I am getting on a bit or whether playing games on nightmare mode is probably a bad idea… never-the-less, taking all of the above into consideration and the fact that I didn’t encounter any game breaking bugs – Deadlight: Director’s Cut is pretty damn awesome. It’s got everything that a zombie survival game needs and tonne more spoiler related hidden gems to offer. Deadlight’s story has a couple of cliché moments and was a little short for me, but the game is absolutely stunning and controls beautifully!

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!

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.

Deadlight Director's Cut packs a good game in a shinier package – a solid platforming survival (not zombie slaughter) game that emphasizes staying alive and moving quickly while taking the high ground that now has refined visuals and controls. Overall it's a good package and certainly the best way to experience Deadlight but those looking for a ton of value packed or incredible voice acting might be left a little disappointed. In the end, it's a good game, great experience, and we can't wait to see what Tequila Works brings us next.

Remasters, remakes, and ports are nothing new, and Deadlight is one of the few games from last generation that deserves it. Releasing on Xbox 360’s Summer of Arcade in 2012, Deadlight later made its way to PC with little fanfare. Now, on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Deadlight: Director’s Cut has a chance to impress new players with its take on a zombie apocalypse. The art style helps to mask the age, but it can’t stop certain gameplay mechanics from feeling rough on these consoles. Those complaints aren’t enough to keep me from recommending this solid experience, especially given the additional content and low launch pricing.

Deadlight Director’s Cut combines classic puzzle platforming fun with an artistic direction and story that is able to create a bleak atmosphere.

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.

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.

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