Excerpt: The world has gone zombie mad nowadays and there is very rarely a day goes by when a new zombie book/movie/game/fanart etc hasn’t reared its head somewhere. So how do you try and provide something original in the world of zombie fascination?
Conclusion: It was such a breathe of fresh air from anything that I had been playing so it was very welcome. I completed the game in around 3 and half hours. For anyone on the fence about Deadlight I would recommend trying out the demo.
Excerpt: I’ve experienced a recent string of bad luck when it comes to XBOX Arcade games. Those I’ve tried have been puzzling, choppy, and simply ineffective in their attempts to engage me. Deadlight is not like other XBOX Arcade games.
Summary: Zombies are still intensely popular despite their over-saturation in recent years, and developers are faced with a constant struggle to profit off our fascination with them in fresh and outstanding ways.
Excerpt: Over the last few years I've played more than a few games featuring zombies, but Deadlight's arresting vistas, intriguing aesthetic and glossy animations should be more than enough to persuade most to have another dalliance with the walking dead. To put it bluntly, Deadlight is a joy in motion.
Excerpt: When the zombie apocalypse comes, gamers will be prepared. We’ll see the first reanimated corpses biting humans, identify them as zombies, swiftly decapitate them and stop the epidemic in its tracks.
Summary: " Deadlight " is an odd one. It has a superb opening act that I loved every single minute of. The story, action and pacing are just superb. Unfortunately the second act is mostly rubbish, before an action-packed final chapter that brings back a better story, but struggles under the controls...

Summary: Parents need to know that Deadlight is a downloadable platform adventure game designed explicitly for older audiences. It contains a bit of profanity, but the graphic violence is what earned this one an M-rating from the ESRB.
Excerpt: It seems like every second or third M-rated game that comes out these days has something to do with zombies. If it’s not a blatantly zombie-centric game like The Walking Dead , Left 4 Dead 1/2 or Dead Rising 1/2 , then zombies will all too often be worked-in somehow as in games like Call of Duty:...
