Really enjoyed Days Gone despite selling it a few days after its initial PS4 release a couple of years ago. Picked it up again last year after hearing lots of positives about it and it exceeded expectations.
Only finished it the other day after starting it about 6 months ago! Played it on and off but it's got an open world that is exciting to mess around in and encourages exploration on your motorbike. The story does a good job with the plot it has to work with, and the characters are pretty good too. One or two are bland but on the whole, there are a bunch of characters that are memorable.
The graphics can take your breath away or maybe it's more accurate to say that the artists crafted a replica of the state of Oregon that can make you gasp at times, particularly in the mountainous regions. Stunning sunsets and rises, and seeing the Milky Way bending across the sky at nighttime is stunning. I'd sometimes just ride the bike up a mountain at sunset to see the Milky Way before gunning down a horde of freaks on the way back to base.
Lots of fun weapons to turn against freaks and rippers and the sound effects when the bullets hit environmental objects is so satisfying.
Not a perfect game by any means but as a sum of its parts it works and is fun to play from beginning to end.
Can't wait to see what it's like on PC. Definite buy.
Edit - I enjoyed playing as Deacon St John and loved his voice actor. Same actor was in The Mist and has quite a distinctive voice. Boozer is a good sidekick as well.
Also lots of hairy moments that get your heart racing. More than a few heart-in-your-mouth moments when you're out of your bike or exploring a cave on your own.
£31.79 on CDKeys - worth it?40 quid is a bit steep !
All tho the improvement in graphics should be decent, even the ps4 version was very good for 7/8 year old console
I have it on disk for ps4/5 played about 3/4 hours then put it down and never picked it back up .
That is a much better price, ( is it worth , from the "play of game" i really couldn't say - only put about 3/4 into it - so haven't really given it much time to say yea or nay !!
It kind of kicks your ass to begin with, but once you unlock bike upgrades/skills/weapons etc. It becomes a lot more fun.Booted this up on Steam at lunchtime.
Presentation and GFX options are nice. Game runs nice and smooth.
Running a 3080 with the high setting I`m getting about 90fps. Locked the vsync to 60hz as I`m gaming on a 65" tv. Been looking forward to this.
Only played an hour or so. It warns you if you’re going outside the mission area in the beginning, so I’m not sure how open world it is.How bad is the open-world bloat/busy work? Thinking about picking this up but really don't want another clear-the-icons-off-the-map ubisoft style bore-fest.
This warning is confined to the mission you're on, although not every mission has it. It's open world off missionOnly played an hour or so. It warns you if you’re going outside the mission area in the beginning, so I’m not sure how open world it is.
enjoyed what I’ve played so far
