Dying Light is an odd game. Its story is rubbish, and its scripted missions are even worse, frequently railroading you into combat against men with machine guns when all you have is a bloodied table leg. But there's something to be said for the systems underpinning the game's world. Ignoring the script and going off-piste and just having fun with all of Dying Light's bells and whistles is actually a lot of fun. Ignore the clunky framing, and there's a wonkily brilliant sandbox to much around in, stuffed with the undead and things to climb.

Not that you see much of that in the game's opening scenes. Let's just say that it takes a little while to get going.

Nonetheless, here's a look at the game's introduction and the scene setting and instruction that comes with Dying Light's first half hour or so. The video above is bereft of commentary, but you can click here to see and hear me take on the game's first hour too if you like.

Resident Evil 6 is pretty balls if you're looking for a classic survival horror experience (buy The Evil Within instead). However, for less than £3 it might well be worth picking up if you fancy a bit of cathartic shooting-zombies-in-their-ugly-faces.

And at least it's better than Resident Evil 5, right?

Probably.

Resident Evil HD Remaster PS4 Review | Still Number 1

Resident Evil HD Remaster PS4 Review | Still Number 1

The original survival horror brand is back and for once we're not rolling our eyes at another HD makeover. Rather than an unnecessary PS4 port of Resi 5 or 6, this is a HD makeover of the 2002 GameCube exclusive remake of the 1996 PS1 Resident Evil. For those of you yet to play the GC version, this will be a remarkable experience if you enjoyed the original game.

The remake was extremely faithful to the original, meaning lots of fixed camera angles and pre-rendered backgrounds. There's no need to worry about the dated 'tank' controls as there's an option to switch to modern analogue movement rather than having to spin on the spot before moving. The different camera angles as you move onto a new screen can still have disastrous results that see you accidentally turn around and run straight back into a zombie's bitey embrace though.

Resident Evil HD Remaster PS4 Review | Still Number 1

Depending what difficulty you choose will affect how conservative with your ammo you are. Although it makes sense to save ammo when you can run past a zombie that you know will keep coming back later. The game is notably tougher than you'll remember if you're coming from the PS1 game thanks to the inclusion of Crimson Head zombies that reappear in older areas if you don’t burn corpses and they move much faster than their shuffling forebears. Defensive items like knives and tasers can be used to retaliate against bite attacks, ensuring that you're not as reliant on green herbs or health sprays.
