IGN Review: Dead Island

Dead Island is Fallout 3 with zombies. Plenty of people are going to compare it to Dead Rising (as you can create weapons) and Left 4 Dead (as the action is first-person and good for four players online), but when I finally got past the game's obtuse opening and less than stellar cutscenes, I found a world rife with quests, interesting environments, and a character progression system that had me begging for more hours in the day. In short, Dead Island's a rough around the edges role-playing game, and I dug it. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10

Really want to pick this up but need to be very wise with my spendings this year. The Q4 2011 madness starts September 6th

I'd say wait. I mean there are tons of games coming out in September let alone October and November. If you're not dying to play it, just wait for a price drop. Not to mention PS3 footage of the game (full walkthrough can be found on YouTube) looks very disappointing in comparison to 360 footage.

im gonna pass on this only because its another zombie game and zombies in general are way over done and dull at this point
DarkBlood  +   1546d ago

How very avantgarde of you.

It's not that I find zombie games dull,
it's more like I think that Techland are average developers.

Average developers make average games.

(Hell even the amazing Dead Island CG trailer released earlier in the year, was outsourced to a 3rd party company, Deep Silver in Scotland)

So you'd never give the dev a chance no matter how amazing a future game could be? You're not narrow minded at all.

This game looks quite good, and co-op should be a blast

First it's, "I'm sick of killing Nazis." Now it's, "I'm sick of killing zombies."

Look... deal with it! Because if enough you complain about being sick of killing *whatever*, we'll end up with rabid chipmunks to kill... and then you'll eventually be sick of that, too.

Kran  +   1546d ago
Before you guys rage, this article was posted yesterday (before the review poped), and took all this time to approve. Even though I think it should be removed. Sorry.

IGN gave it an 8. So thats one review right there. Silly article.
swishersweets20031  +   1546d ago
Its in the toilet with the rest of the zombie games
holdmedownma2008  +   1546d ago
Even though the game sounds fun, it's kind of disappointing the developers couldn't get the actual gameplay to match the fidelity of the CGI scene. I'm still going to pick up, but not day one.
Xristo  +   1546d ago
Hopefully worth the $36 I just spent for it. I just want it to get me by until 25 October. :)

"If you wanna become an un-dead Jersey Shore."

This Q4 is definitely going to be crazy, so many great games and so little time and money.*sigh* I'll definitely be picking up Dead Island along with Space Marine come Tues.

Nice, getting it for my 360, Live anyone?!? 8)
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1545d ago
What the!?? Is that Spike Spiegel (Steve Blum) with an Australian accent!?

I was interested in this game for a while (almost as much as AMY) so I may give it a try. Besides I know 3 friends already picking up this title so it may be fun.
