  • Summary: There is little to recommend in this game. The graphics are quite nice for a 2D game. The difficulty is all over the place, going from laughably easy to ridiculously hard while somehow bypassing the golden mean of satisfying challenge. The combat system is rather poor and uninteresting.

  • Summary: The story was OK, and the graphics are fine, but the mechanics are just garbage. The amount of times I have died from faulty controls is unbelievable, just because I either can't jump up a ladder because he can't grab it, or your character randomly decides to tackle a zombie to the ground, which...

  • Summary: 4/10. The game opens with a somewhat mysterious storyline that is progressively explained throughout the game, which is the games only strong point. Controls are only somewhat explained during gameplay, leaving the player to resort to the controls menu in order to figure out how to progress, and...

  • Summary: Horrible narration, a nonsensical story line with characters that are completely unlikeable and devoid of any intelligence combined with difficult-to-see terrain, finicky controls and jumping puzzles that will force you to die a few times to figure them out unless you get lucky make Deadlight a...

  • Summary: Extremely short (finished in 5.0 hours), pathetic Console Port. Thanks again, Consoles! Cannot change key-bindings. Just try pressing 'D' and 'E' at the same time (moving an object) or performing a grouped jump ('D'+SHIFT+CTRL+SPACE) and you will understand what i mean. Lame story.

  • Summary: Pros: Atmosphere is set nicely and the art style looks really good. Musical score and sound effects in general are pretty good. Animation of the humans and zombies is really smooth. Game is about the right length (about 5 hours) for what I paid for it.

  • Summary: Good game, albeit short. All of the good is wiped out by the horrible controls though. There are a bunch of areas that can only be passed via rolling (Sprint Crouch). The problem is, the character rarely rolls when you press the buttons.

  • Summary: The atmosphere is decent and the writing is great. But that's where the good parts end. The game is killed by a horrible control scheme that is inconsistent at best and downright unresponsive, no matter if using keyboard/mouse, gamepad, or even an Xbox 360 controller (that the game was originally...

  • Summary: Deadlight is one of the XBLA Summer of Arcade titles from a while back that's been recently ported to PC. It's a divisively reviewed survival horror/action/platforming/puzzler from a little known studio, running with a vibe similar to the highly praised Limbo.

  • Summary: This game has a nice atmosphere and looks great on paper. Even the first steps are fun. Until the really bad controlls kill all the fun. It is extremly annoying how often you die due to bad control. Best example is probably trying to climb over a fence..
