Days Gone Reviews Summary

Strong, Exciting Moments
Repetitive Missions
Bland World and Narrative

Summary: While there are some great moments in Days Gone, its best ideas are never at the forefront. Though some critics genuinely enjoyed the title, others criticized its dull narrative and uninteresting world.

General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Apr 26, 2019

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Genres: Horror, Adventure

A Dynamic World Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world action game experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items. Towns and buildings can be entered and searched – at great risk. All lighting is done in real time – eye adaption technology creates a real sense of dread when entering dark buildings; day and night have an impact on the experience; weather affects enemy behavior.   Brutal Sandbox Combat Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.   Unique Enemies In addition to human drifters, marauders, and other groups, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to.   Unique Setting The harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest offers a large variety of environments in a single geographical area. One minute Deacon can be riding through a pristine forest, a snow field, a lush meadow, and the next, be in the harsh desert lava fields. The hazardous environments, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity, are defined by ancient lava flows, mountains, caves, cliffs and river basins, delivering a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay. Cinnabar mines, lava tube caves and small rural towns offer a variety of environments to explore. - Days gone is about survivors and what makes them human - Desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love - and hope - It's about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live

A frequently gorgeous, sadly generic open-world game that runs out of steam well before its extended play-time is over.

6.5 / 10.0

Fun in small bursts, but Days Gone's repetition, bland world, and meandering story make for an unremarkable ride.

Days Gone is a keen and engaging open world zombie adventure despite some issues.

A peculiarly constructed open world zombie game that sidelines its most unique features in favour of generic action and unengaging storytelling.
