Conclusion: Banoi is an island that will leave a lasting mark on anyone who visits it. Perhaps you’ll be awestruck by the beautiful blue waters or the lush jungles. Perhaps you’ll remember the colorful cast of characters who liven up your stay.
Pros: Lush surroundings and gorgeous visuals make for a highly engaging atmosphere, Plenty of things to do, including general exploration and a long list of side quests, Excellent melee combat finally gives you the chance to hack away at the zombie horde
Cons: The story gets lost in the shuffle, and it’s difficult to really get attached to any of the characters
Excerpt: If you ever wondered what Dead Island would be like if it played more as a traditional first-person shooter, you can find out in this new downloadable single-player campaign. It casts you as Ryder White himself, a battle-hardened Aussie colonel (and antagonist from the first game) who must butcher...
Pros: + Emphasis on gunning down zombie aggressors transforms the game into a fast-paced, moderately entertaining (if clumsy) FPS experience.
Cons: ? Why don't vehicle-mounted gun turrets rotate 360 degrees? It's no fun having a blind spot where zombies can attack you unharmed.
Excerpt: The walking dead – we’ve seen it all before; they waltz on over and we fill them with an assortment of lead. Next! In recent years this old chestnut has choked the market to death, with little new being brought to the table due to the high success of the old, now somewhat stale, formula.
Excerpt: Summary [7.0 out of 10] Dead Island generated immediate buzz when its first trailer hit and news of the gameplay kept it going with what sounded like a fun and intense zombie survival experience. Playing the demo at E3 took it a step further and had us really excited for the release.

Summary: It started with an announcement teaser: Deep Silver and Techland unleashed a three-minute stretch of CG-footage depicting a family being ravaged by quick-footed zombies, with stirring orchestral music and slow-motion movement emotionalizing a young girl’s transformation into one of the mindless...
Conclusion: The Bad Average production values never live up to the quality of the first cinematic Dead Island trailer Tacked-on gunfights and driving sequences add little to the experience Repetitive and flawed side objectives Dead Island is available to buy from Play.com.
Conclusion: abandoned luggage, swimming pools filled with blood, zombies feasting on piles of viscera and stumbling toward the player if they got too close. All the while there are the sounds of beach life: seagulls, surf, and gentle breezes.
Conclusion: This game is so much fun that those problems only make it more of a challenge which is actually refreshing in survival horrors. If you like any of those games, this game is definitely worth checking out.
