Playing catch-up: Dead Island

Shane Ryan, Thunderbolt writes:
It’s disappointing to see zombies, a once terrifying twist on the vampire lore, one that used the dead to reflect a mirror on our own culture, become a mass marketed commodity that has lost all sense of meaning. It was with hope that titles such as ZombiU and The Walking Dead would regenerate these dying corpses into something more than a pop culture fart. Catching-up with Techland’s Dead Island, it’d be interesting to see which side of the fence they fell or stood upon. (Dead Island, Xbox 360)
