Zombies are a cornerstone of modern entertainment. From George Romero's Night of the Living Dead to books, games, and everything in between, they have managed to spread their festering presence across media. You could argue that the concept is stale, with nearly every scenario possible explored ad nauseaum.

The unique parkour system took elements from games like Mirror's Edge and then mashed them with zombies, making it feel fresh. The game also had a day/night cycle, with more powerful foes to face at night. It took a while, with development road bumps and delays but the sequel Dying Light 2: Stay Human is here. How does it measure up to the original? And, is it still fun to dropkick the undead in their face?
