Description Dying Light 2: Stay Human
In Dying Light 2, survival meets action adventure as you attempt to endure a hostile, post-apocalyptic world. Rival factions across The City aren’t the only enemy – a virus has turned a vast majority of the human population into monsters.
Hone your skills to defeat your enemies and make allies. Unravel the dark secrets behind those that wield power, choose sides and decide your destiny. But wherever your actions take you, there’s one thing you must do – stay human.
- Excellent visuals, especially on high-end hardware
- Free running remains as fun as it was in the first game
- Cooperative multiplayer
- Parachute and grappling hook are fun to use
- Boring story and characters
- Poor pacing
- Full of open-world filler
Dying Light 2: Stay Human review
Without a doubt one of the most ambitious zombie games ever made – a full-blown action-RPG that marries a decent storyline with irresistible parkour and melee action, plus an open world stuffed with zombie-dicing delights. The most intelligent zombie game yet made. Read full review…
Dying Light 2 Stay Human Review
Another in a long series of big, ambitious games whose potential greatness is visible just beneath a grimey layer of bugs, Dying Light 2 Stay Human could very likely become the stellar zombie survival adventure it’s meant to be someday. For now, though, it’s best added to your backlog unless your irritation with crashes and technical issues is outweighed by eagerness to dance across rooftops with its excellent parkour, which – when everything works – is an unforgettable way to explore the last city’s open world and join in the post-apocalyptic stories of its many weird and distinctive characters. No patch can fix the forgettable main plot or the protagonist I couldn’t pick out of a police lineup even after 80 hours in his shoes, but Dying Light 2’s streets tell their own stories.

Dying Light 2 Review: Look Before You Leap
Dying Light 2 is a perplexing game. Its story and characters are headache-inducing, and it appears to lack polish in many areas. But even a dozen hours after I rolled credits, I’ve found myself going back to the game to do another parkour challenge, rummage through another abandoned science lab, or just see if I can get from Point A to Point B without ever hitting the ground. It’s rough around the edges and it asks players to invest a lot in its weakest element, but once you realize the story, like gravity, is only going to pull you down, you can begin to defy it and enjoy the things Dying Light 2 actually does well.

DYING LIGHT 2: STAY HUMAN REVIEW
Dying Light 2 is a big game, y’all. The city is simply massive, filled with activities and random encounters and rooftop skirmishes, and even with a glider and other parkour toys just crossing a single district takes a good long time. Villedor is even bigger than a cursory glance of the map suggests because there are regions that sprawl well outside the borders. After finishing the story I ran along the edge of a district and discovered there’s a whole underwater portion of the city I didn’t even know existed. This game is huge.
After the 50 hours it took me to complete the main quest, about a dozen sidequests, and a bunch of other activities, I still have plenty to do in Dying Light 2, and I’m keen to keep playing. Hell, even after wrapping up the story there are still a bunch of skills I haven’t unlocked, quests I haven’t begun, and large sections of the city I’ve barely set foot in—not to mention plenty of bandits I’ve yet to set foot on.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human Review
Dying Light 2 is an engaging journey of discovery and gaining power. Almost everything you do embraces those dynamics. In evolving beyond the first game’s offerings, putting a stronger emphasis on the characters helps shape the world in meaningful ways. Some of Aiden’s choices are difficult, especially those surrounding a character named Lawan – who is given a hell of a pulse by Rosario Dawson. I can’t say enough great things where his and her stories go. I adored almost every second of this game and see myself often revisiting it, as Techland has announced at least five years of DLC is on the way. That’s a wonderful promise to hear when starting a new game that has turned out this well. Read full review…
Dying Light 2: Stay Human (for PC) Review
Dying Light 2 has been a long time coming—maybe too long. Despite dropping in 2022, Dying Light 2 feels just as the first game did in 2015, for better or worse. Some players might be charmed by its janky presentation, or not mind the boring story and characters. After all, playing with your friends, climbing rooftops, and slapping zombies with a 2×4 that shoots electricity is fun. And considering the breadth of updates and DLC that the first game received, we expect Dying Light 2 to age well. Fans of the first game or those looking for a unique cooperative experience will find a lot to love here, but everyone else might be better off waiting for a price drop. Read full review…
