Dead Island- PC

 

Zombies have practically replaced Nazis and space aliens as gaming's enemy du jour. From Plants vs. Zombies to Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising and beyond, the shambling undead are everywhere these days. Developer Techland (Call of Juarez) and publisher...

The graphics problems notwithstanding, I was having a good time with Dead Island. But I won't return to the island of Banoi until all the bugs are squashed for good.

Dead Island

 

Gone are the stereotypical grays and browns that plague most zombie shooters in favor of the tropical and luscious isle of Banoi, which looks breathtaking at times. There are some weird animations, but the voice acting more than makes up for those.

In a stall since the 1.3.0 update, but I'm hoping the new trainer will put me back into the game again when it becomes available.

Dead Island Review

 

Much like a zombie, Dead Island is ugly on the outside but? wait this analogy makes no sense

Interesting open world, beautiful locations, amazing sense of dread and tension, different take on zombie games

Bugs, overly difficult at times, wonky interface

Dead Island

 

This unambitious but serviceable frankengame was clearly cobbled together from scavenged parts.

Narratively, Dead Island is unambitious. There’s no attempt at satire, commentary, or quirk. The plot, mostly communicated through quest-givers, is straight-faced as a straight-to-cable horror flick, but like the rest of the game, it’s serviceable....

Dead Island Review

 

Does Dead Island live up to its awesome debut trailer? Well...

Dead Island probably won't win any game of the year awards. It's got visual bugs, the controls take a bit to feel normal, and the presentation in general isn't up to snuff. But the game gets a lot right. There is a huge world to explore, thousands of...

Review: Dead Island is Like a Bunch of Games You've Already Played

 

There's not much originality to be found, but Techland's latest milks the last few drops of fun from the zombie genre.

Great games don't have to be completely original -- take Beyond Good and Evil, for instance. Michel Ancel's 2003 cult classic blended the best bits of Ocarina of Time and Metal Gear Solid to produce a fantastically playable experience that still has us...

Dead Island

 

A schlocky, gruesomely fun action role-playing game awaits you on Dead Island. Bring three friends.

Dead Island- PC

 

Dead Island manages to blend pieces of other titles into an overall better whole, but is marred by presentation issues and the odd bug. However, overcoming the horrific launch has left a half-decent action title that only just outstays its welcome.

Dead Island- PC

 

Part grim, survivalist nightmare, part slapstick zombie comedy and the goriest game you'll play this year, Dead Island is the most fun you can have with an electrified cleaver and a sack of wet, walking flesh.

Dead Island- PC

 

Either you can ignore the clumsy interface and fight through to the game beneath or you can't. There's a great game under all the rubbish, but you have to be willing to shrug off a bunch of annoyances to get there.
