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.

xtremexx2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

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

Blacktric2151d ago (Edited 2151d ago )

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

DarkBlood2151d ago

so are fps games as well

Cpt_kitten2151d ago

true which is why i normally dont play those unless ive liked the series, even then i dont play much

JellyJelly2151d ago

How very avantgarde of you.

jony_dols2151d ago (Edited 2151d ago )

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.
