Days Gone

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Days Gone has a solid foundation, but the game sidelines its most unique features in favor of generic and repetitious gameplay, it has a ton of bugs, and its meandering, inconsistent story has nothing meaningful to say.

Game Info

Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game set in a harsh wilderness two years after a devastating global pandemic. Play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who rides the broken road, fighting to survive while searching for a reason to live. At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love – and hope. It’s about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live. Hope never dies.

6.5/10

Fun in small bursts, but Days Gone’s repetition, bland world, and meandering story make for an unremarkable ride.

3.5/5 stars

Days Gone is a keen and engaging open world zombie adventure despite some issues.

Days Gone has its exciting moments, but it fails to say anything interesting or meaningful about its story and characters.
