Dead Island Review

VideoGamer.com
3 March 2012
  • Excerpt: After six years in development, Techland has come up with a nuts-and-bolts zombie experience simulator. Somewhere in its genetic code is a shade of Left 4 Dead's zombie types, a bit of Dead Rising's crafting system, and Borderlands' preference for co-op.

  • Excerpt: This was a fun game. I know you''''re probably thinking "What''''s so fun about another zombie FPS?" Well truth is, it''''s not your average FPS. You actually level your weapons, upgrade your weapons, and even create your own weapons. With the right supplies and weapon parts of coarse.

Dead Island – Staff Review

23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Dead Island is Borderlands meets Left 4 Dead set in Far Cry with the melee of Condemned . I wanted something less abrupt to start with, but this game is a Normandy beach landing away from hitting the FPS singularity (not to be confused with the FPS titled Singularity ).

20 November 2011
  • Summary: If you have kept up with any news on Dead Island, you would think that the game is the epitome of being infested with bugs, and an unfortunate release. People who purchased the digital copies of the game were given the developer version that had features, which made the game a mess, and some of...

Isle of zombies (and they love me)

Game Debate
29 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Imagine you’re on holiday with your family. It’s a gorgeous beach resort, you’re staying in a villa with a sweet pool, a short walk from the beach bar or the hiking trails inland. Your family are all sat in the sun, reading or splashing around in the pool. Everyone is completely at peace.
  • Pros: Open world, Co op fun, Inventive weapons
  • Cons: Too much maintenance, Lukewarm story

  • Conclusion: A sluggish interface, weak guns and a few dull sewers can’t slow this game down. Dead Island is huge, bloody and beautiful.

Cheat Happens
16 September 2011
  • Excerpt: x Dead Island is a classic example of art imitating life. By the very definition of the term, Dead Island can easily be considered to be a bit of a zombie itself. Originally scheduled for release in 2008, the game was repeatedly delayed and assumed killed off until a new emotional trailer featuring...

Dead Island (PC)

PC Magazine
15 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Dead Island serves up some choice zombie-thrashing thrills in a gorgeous environment, but a weak story, tedious fetch quests, pacing issues, and some multiplayer issues keep it from greatness.
  • Pros: Gorgeous environments. Hard-hitting combat. Excellent sound.
  • Cons: Multiplayer combat isn’t as smooth as single player. Sparse story. Too many fetch quests.

Dead Island

ActionTrip
15 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Dead Island's saving grace is its open-world approach, cool custom weapons and fun coop. Nonetheless, Techland created a perfect foundation for a cool, RPG-flavored survival horror game, but forgot to polish it, in addition to providing a dull narrative.
  • Pros: An addictive coop survival horror experience that may keep you and your friends up to your necks in zombie blood for hours and hours, vast areas to explore, detailed weapon customization;
  • Cons: No local coop (wtf?), some bugs remain even after applying the patch, single-player lacks more interesting story and characters.

  • Conclusion: Trying to keep a mental catalogue of the things that are wrong with Dead Island, at least in its current state, is kind of exhausting. The good news is, the sum total of those issues still isn't damning enough that I would dissuade you from playing it.
