Dead Island Review

maximum pc
31 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Ever dreamed of a vacation on a tropical island paradise? Ever dreamed of a vacation consisting of bludgeoning, shattering, stabbing, slashing, shooting, burning, electrocuting, and exploding hordes of bathing-suit clad zombies? Well, then Dead Island is the place for you! Dead Island, the latest from Polish developer Techland defies simple classification. It is instead defined by the many games it seems to lovingly, if not shamefully, pull inspiration from.
  • Pros: Brutal, satisfying combat; huge, detailed world; tons of loot; fun co-op multiplayer.
  • Cons: Poor UI and control; numerous performance and stability issues; gets repetitive.

  • Excerpt: You remember that trailer, right? The one that told the harrowing story of a small family torn apart by a fleshthirsty zombie infestation. The one with the slick editing, beautiful music, memorable imagery and emotional resonance we so rarely see in video games. The one that took the internet by storm and re-introduced us all to Dead Island; the zombie game that might just pull at the heartstrings, offering more than just a comical bash of undead slaying.

  • 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 a family fighting for their lives against a horde of undead invaders hit the web and instantly went viral.

  • Summary: Despite shuffling its way to the top of the multi format charts and taking a bite out of Deus Ex: Human Revolution in the process, Dead Island has polarised critics and gamers since it began spreading its infection across consoles and PC. Set on the fictional pacific island of Banoi, Dead Island puts you in control of one of four characters on a plush hotel resort that’s been overrun by the walking dead.

Dead Island: Riptide Review - Dead Island 1.4

InsideGamer
29 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Dead Island: Riptide is meer van hetzelfde. In het geval van de combat en het levelen van je personage is dit een goede zaak. De game brengt helaas ook alle fouten uit het vorige deel met zich mee en dat voelt als een kwalijke zaak. Tel daarbij op dat er niet gekozen is voor de unieke vakantieomgeving als setting, en dat juist de meer rechtlijnige jungle en stad centraal staan, en je hebt met een tegenvaller te maken die alsnog leuk is om te spelen.
  • Pros: Zombies kapot maken blijft leuk, Co-op, Het nieuwe personage, Basissen verdedigen
  • Cons: Minder interessante setting, Dezelfde technische fouten, Verhaal boeit nog steeds niet

Обзор Dead Island

games.cnews.ru
13 October 2011
  • Summary: Понимая всю усталость и бессилие последних упражнений других разработчиков в жанре зомби-боевика, Techland постарались создать хоть и не революционный, но достаточно самобытный геймплей. Незадача лишь в том, что правильные идеи в Dead Island не доведены до логичного исполнения, а то хорошое, что есть в игре, можно попросту не заметить под грудой багов и глюков.
  • Pros: Атмосфера zombie-movie, Оптимизированный движок, Сочная картинка тропиков, Хорошая механика боев, Многообразие оружейного дела
  • Cons: Баги и глитчи, Топорная физика, Посредственная локализация, Недоработки баланса

  • Summary: Dead Island — еще один памятник непомерным амбициям и кривым рукам. Обиднее всего будет тем, кто купился на отменный ролик от шотландской Axis Animation, не имеющий с игрой ничего общего. P.S. Настраивая гамму в игре, ни в коем случае не следуйте советам на экране — верьте своим глазам. Пересвеченная картинка способна сильно испортить впечатление от графики.

Dead Island

10 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Dead Island is best een leuke game… voor ongeveer drie uur. Zo lang kun je je ongeveer goed vermaken met de verfrissende setting, het amputeren van ledematen en het aanpassen van je slagwapens. Na die drie uur wordt pijnlijk zichtbaar dat er te weinig te beleven valt op het eiland en begint het neerhoeken van zombies aardig te vervelen.
  • Pros: Originele setting, Wapens modificeren
  • Cons: Beperkte bewegingsvrijheid, Geestdodend vechtsysteem, Matige graphics en dito animaties, Originele setting niet maximaal benut, Co-op werkt in de praktijk niet
