I was joking about the lack of lighting in that trailer. dying light just looks dreary and dark and drab. I thought the trailer for dead island 2 looked really good. I thought the visuals looked excellent. I personally thought the difference was night and day, Just my opinion. I was just surprised that I was the only one that saw it that way,that's all.
I stand by the visuals. Dead Island 2 is more colorful (makes sense, given the circumstances), but that's about it. It's just not as technically sound, to me. In regards to game-play, what Dying Light adds provides more versatility and variety. That is why most prefer it.
