Days Gone gameplay, graphics, and amazing storytelling definitely lives up to its expectation. The game is a PS4 exclusive and aims to bring this era to an end as next-gen PS5 is on the horizon. Days Gone costs $59.99, and if we forgive a couple of glitches, the game is absolutely worth it. The studio has released several patches immediately after release.
Days Gone is a grim, beautiful B-movie; its action and writing are full of pulpy thrills, and by the end of it, I found myself liking a character called Deacon St. John – an achievement in itself.
The zombie apocalypse is well-trodden territory and the open-world spin of Days Gone can only differentiate it so much. There's a strong narrative focus, but Deacon St. John doesn't carry that weight as deftly as he could. There are highlights and fun tools available within, but the game doesn't push those forward initially, leaving the players to deal with some tedium first. Days Gone is a great foundation for something better though, so hopefully Bend gets the chance to improve upon it.
