“Dying Light is a series largely about dicking around on rooftops and leathering zombies with a bit of rebar, and yet [the sequel] manages to make both the parkour and combat feel oddly weightless, locking away abilities – such as a power attack with a melee weapon, or the ability to run along walls like in Mirror’s Edge – behind an uninspired skill-tree.”
