Dead Island

18 July 2012
  • 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. Perhaps you’ll just have to deal with those deep blood stains that won’t wash out no matter how much bleach you use.
  • 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

Dead Island is a Trippy, Hellish Paradise

  • Excerpt: A long time ago, several Aliens -inspired mods hit for . The one that stood out from the rest of the pack opened the same way does – in silence. Players started out on a landing platform from which they began to explore a formerly thriving colony. The entire level was a case study in intensity and atmosphere because you just knew that somehow somewhere an alien was going to pop out of a closet and attack.

  • Excerpt: Survival horror Fetch quests on Zombie Island?  Why doesn’t this suck? In recent years zombies in gaming have become so commonplace that even hating them has become a cliche. Games at every level, from full retail releases to Xbox Live Indie and iOS titles, are riddled with the brain-addicted fuckers to such a degree that they’ve become an actual zombie epidemic.

Dead Island Edition Exclusive Micromania

4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: L’omniprésence des zombies dans les jeux depuis quelques années confine à l’overdose et lorsque la lassitude menace, seuls les meilleurs s’en tirent. Un constat qui vaut autant pour Dead Island que pour ses héros. Cerné par un ciel bleu et une mer émeraude, l’atoll de Banoi a tout du paradis touristique, y compris un complexe hôtelier aussi vaste que luxueux.

Dead Island

Game-Focus
2 March 2014
  • Summary: Focus Final : En résumé, Dead Island est un très bon jeu et rentre dans la catégorie des jeux attendus et qui ne déçoivent pas. Les graphismes sont sympa, la bande-son est très bonne, la durée de vie est énorme, le gameplay, bien que copié littéralement sur Borderlands, reste efficace, seul le scénario pêche un petit peu. Un achat obligatoire.
  • Pros: - le jeu lui même - le côté décalé île paradisiaque/zombies - la bande-son - le gameplay qui n’a plus rien à prouver - la durée de vie énorme - le multijoueur - la multiplication des armes - la customisation des armes - les environnements ouverts
  • Cons: - le scénario - pas assez de risque pris dans le gameplay - les doublage (pourtant en V.O)

Test: Dead Island

XboxFront
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Zombies treiben an vielen Orten ihr Unwesen. Es gibt sie in amerikanischen Großstädten, in Afrika und seit neustem sogar auf tropischen Urlaubsinseln. Dead Island bietet zumindest in Sachen Setting etwas Neues an, aber reicht das aus, um Fans der Untoten vor den Bildschirm zu locken? Wir meinen: Ja!
  • Pros: + frisches Setting, + viele spielerische Möglichkeiten, + Upgrade-System, + stimmige Sounduntermalung, + Koop-Modus, - Rücksetzpunkte sind nicht immer optimale gewählt, - einige grafische Schwächen (Animationen, Innenräume)
