Deadlight

 

It's that time of year again when Microsoft trots out some fresh new downloadable titles for its annual Summer of Arcade celebration. Today,

Deadlight shows a lot of promise but ultimately falls short. Frustrating mechanics and design elements that shift away from its initial premise make for a less tantalizing experience. It’s not all bad however, as the graphics are really top notch and...

What memories do our souls repress? Memories that linger in the back of our minds like a sliver of anguish that becomes the cross that our souls must bear. This is a brutal reality of Tequila Work's latest Xbox Live Arcade hit, Deadlight. If you are...

Trying to live up to a hit title is a hard thing to do, especially when it's a game that goes above and beyond with casual and dedicated players alike. A while back, that's exactly what PlayDead Games did with Limbo, a challenging, spooky platformer...

Deadlight draws you in with its rich, pervasive atmosphere, but doesn't give you much to do once you're there.

Does Deadlight deliver an outstanding side-scrolling platform adventure, or does it get eaten by zombies?

Deadlight lacks neither style nor substance, and it lasts just about the perfect amount of time. The story is minimal but engaging, and the ending is unexpected -- in a good way. A couple of sections stumble a bit, but not enough to detract from what...

Deadlight Review: The Zombie Apocalypse Via a Throwback Genre

 

This excellent XBLA title portrays horror through the guise of a puzzle-platformer.

Whenthere's no more room in hell, the dead will walk theearth." From the 1978 classic film Dawn of the Dead,no single line has better encompassed the relatively infantile genre ofzombie horror. When you hear those words calmly delivered by a...

Is there such a thing as a non-zombie apocalypse?

Remember Limbo?; What a great game!; The platforming puzzles....; The atmosphere!; So new

Deadlight

Deadlight has all the style, substance, and gameplay you could want, with none of the originality you need. The word "cliché" never left my mind, even for an instant. If you loved Limbo and want to recreate that experience, you could spend $15 on this,...
