RipTen Rewind: Dead Nation (PSN)

Chris Young writes, Welcome to the Rip Ten Rewind. A massive amount of games are released yearly and many fall to the wayside or are over shadowed by massive hits like Gears of War or Assassin’s Creed. This regular feature will pick a single title at least one year old, 25 or less dollars with a rating above 5. We will not only be reviewing the title, but looking at the game’s impact since release, staying power and overall opinion on the title present day. So grab that ice cold Mountain Dew and prepare for the maiden voyage of RipTen Rewind. (Dead Nation, PS3)

Excellent idea for a series! There are so many games that get overlooked, so it's good to see them getting some love. I played Dead Nation when it was released and quite enjoyed it :)

Haha, I got it free with that PSN hacking thing and it was pretty fun actually. Especially in co op.

A great underrated game though is Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands. I haven't played such a solid (and frantic and sometimes difficult) platformer in a long time. And it's dirt cheap nowadays.

I liked playing Dead Nation...
... got it for free as well because of the whole PSN getting hacked thing.

Only problem I had with it was that it was a bit too dark, which meant I couldn't play it during the day cause I couldn't darken my room up enough, and you couldn't really fix the brightness in the game.

I wish they would have patched that, cause I know I wasn't the only one havinga problem with the game being a bit too dark.

@ above

Haha, I know, I could barely see anything and always had to rely on my friend to be my extra set of eyes and usually just always pressed the melee button if I could hear any but not see them.

Haha, gotta admit it though, added an extra layer to cooperating in the game.

So many games slip through the cracks. This gives some lesser played gems some attention.

Dead Nation is a great game. I still play it quite often.

It's one of my favorite PSN games. Was thinking about playing through it again co-op.
