The problem I think with Deadlight is that it's a game that strangely gets progressively worse as you play it. The first 20-30 minutes of it are great and then as they try to add new mechanics (or in some ways remove mechanics as they leave you with just a slingshot) it just gets worse. I admit that I can't really think of another game that gets more frustrating and boring as it unfolds. That closes off the world instead of opening it as you move through the game. Most games start off with you in a room and open up a world as you learn the mechanics, I felt the latter happening in this game. It's sort of unique that way. Though I don't think I hated hated it like you did. I'm glad it's just about 3 hours though as after an hour into it I couldn't wait for it to end, but the completionist in me needed to see it through.

The one thing I did appreciate it that it's easy to get 400/400 gamerscore and so once it's finished it can be deleted and forgotten about. Yes the controls are at times muddy. But it does have a decent checkpoint system that doesn't punish you too hard for some of the sillier deaths. I got it for free off playxbla and wouldn't have paid more than 200-400 msp for it.

RIP Mr Ebert btw, your two thumbs will be sorely missed

Yup, your review encapsulates the issues with this game very well. It would be especially frustrating when you'd find yourself "trapped" in an area, but your companion was just able to just walk away using that elusive third dimension that you couldn't access. Why'd I have to fire my slingshot at these elaborate pulley systems when dude just walked away upscreen?

So, I got 2 punches for buying a 400 point game, but I only bought one, Mark of the Ninja. Unless TWD episodes counted, or Dragonborn. Really not sure what happened.


I got the same thing. I've only bought 3 games so far (Minecraft, World of Keflings, Sonic 3) but all my punches are completed.

Deadlight is the single biggest XBLA disappointment I've had. However, the production quality of the graphics and atmosphere is outstanding. It's a great looking video game with absolutely no compelling gameplay.

Nothing interesting to me as of late since I already own both Mark of the Ninja and Dust. But lately I have spend full price on three season passes equaling 4800 MS pts! :hot: Better hold off on alot of sales since I bought 2x Gears Passes and 1 Bioshock Infinite pass since that game was fucking amazing!

Yeah I've got two punches for buying 2 games worth 400msp each. The only thing is that I've only bought 3 games so far this month. Retro City Rampage for 600msp and then Quarrel and Swarm for 200msp each. I should technically only have one punch but perhaps the combo of Quarrel and Swarm equals 400msp in their system which is clearly as confused about this promo just as about 1/3 of the people on this forum are). Weird but I'm not gonna complain as now I just need 2 more punches to grab a free month of live (though probably will wind up buying a few more games to get the 800 pts back now that I only have another 2200 pts to spend to get it).

Oh God. Reading Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime made me throw up a little in my mouth. What a horrid game! I still remember that I had to walk up to my 40" TV and still squint at the text boxes during the cut scenes they were that small. Everything about that game is horrible horrible horrible. Like most people I got it for free and now I desperately want to get rid of it like some horrid sexually transmitted disease. Such a terrible game.

Actually Hydrophobia wasn't that bad. And comic Jumper I loved. So your list is very opinion based. The others I had no interest in at all even after what people said. im am interested in plaing AMY one day regardless of what people say since a patch has since been released.

Well, I enjoyed playing Comic Jumper, and a friend of mine had a very good time with Real Steel.

On a side note, do not comment this I'm going to say outside this forum, but I know someone who loved Deadlight :shock:.

Well, that guy who loved Deadlight also had TMNT Re-Shelled, and the one who likes Real Steel and me went to his house to play in local (we don't own it). Man, what a boring game :twoguns:.

Dead Rising 2 CZ and CW were on sale for a week until 1st april... they were 160 MSP and 320 MSP.
Guardian Heroes should be on sale right now for 400 MSP, and I've never heard about the other two games going on sale.

Check this website (search bar is on the right) to see all the actual deals and if a game has been on sale before: http://xbldb.com/games

As stated, the DR2 games have been on sale quite a few times, Guardian Heroes is on sale at the moment (this is the 2nd time I recall), and Ikaruga has been on sale about twice or so now. Radiant Silvergun was on sale once at the end of 2011, but that was it.

Best part about being new to Xbox stuff is the fact most of the stuff you might want will probably be on sale at some point. I remember when I got my 360, the concept of Deal of the Week was great and how I saved so much money was awesome.

Most of Deadlight's hate comes from the length, and the fact that there is zero replay value. (I still liked it a lot)

I also loved TMNT =P

Well this is weird. I checked my punchcard & it's been updated, but for some reason, I have 2 punched for the "Buy 4 XBLA games, get 1 free month of Live" section. I only bought Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds & its DLC, plus got a code for Toy Soldiers, so either DLC DOES count for the offer, or in some strange way, the Toy Soldiers code counted (which I doubt). Still says I only spent 800 MSP so far. 1/2 tempted to get a 400 MSP game that I want to see if it updates to 2 punches, showing I spent 1,600 MSP, to see if my theory about the DLC for XBLA games counts or not.

Deadlight is not "fine"

The first 25-33% of the game is good, the rest of he game falls down the stairs, then off a bridge, and finally off the planet.

I did a review when the game came out.


I'd wait until the game is 66-75% off and even then you have to add in that if you plan on playing the game you're going to have to deal with a game that's not all that fun after the first half hour.

The game's not that long though, you should be able to complete it in about 3 hours with everything done.
