In Progress documents playtime spent with a game on the way to a full review. In Progress also serves as a testament to opinions of a game that might not get finished for a full review, due to extreme shittiness. I wish I had thought of this feature when Destiny came out.
Dying Light doesn’t make the best first impression. You are a semi-military dude with an organization called the GRE, who are clearly the good guys and not up to something sinister at all. Immediately after parachuting into a zombie-infested hot zone, some random thugs jack your shit and you get bitten. Crane, the main character, is thus shown to be completely incompetent, which might work if Dying Light was meant to be a Get Smart-type comedy of errors. It’s not. Dying Light thinks everything is completely serious, even when it attempts a joke.
