EuroGamer - Dead Island Review

EuroGamer - Remember the Dead Island teaser trailer? Of course you do. It "went viral" as marketing people with spreadsheets like to say. That means everybody saw it, posted it on Facebook, emailed it to their friends and said, "Hey, what's this Dead Island game all about?" (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6/10

He seems a bit hung up on the fact that the game doesn't reflect the teaser trailer (which is odd since it doesn't seem to be a big deal when reviewing Gears of War and other titles with 'emotional' teaser trailers).

Like the reviewer stated I also think this will be a title that you either love or hate. Pretty sure I'll enjoy it and I'm happy to hear it takes around 25 hours to finish.

But... there's literally like a couple of paragraphs at the start about the trailer, leading into a point saying 'if you were expecting an emotional game, this isn't one.' It doesn't mention the trailer again, but it does mention a whole list of actual flaws. It hardly seems like he's "hung up" on it.

Probably the lowest score I seen. I never really could take Eurogamer as a serious reviewer. They give some amazing games some really mediocre scores sometime. Dead Space 2-7/10 for example. They seem more like hipster reviewers then anything.

Yeah, they really do. Plus, what did he expect, an endless slow-mo reverse hallway scene for 10 hours?

IDK I can understand people being disappointed that it isn't the character driven how-would-real-people-respond- to-the-horrors-of-a-zombie-apoc alypse story that was originally advertise.

With that being said, that really shouldn't effect the game's score. Rate the game for what it is, not what it isn't.

Ouch
He didn't like it much did he. I'm getting it still & it's the lowest score I've seen so far.

I have it, I really like it. I'm not sure what all the complaints are about? Fallout had way more bugs especially game crashes and freezes. I don't get these reviewers sometimes? It's funny I keep reading these reviews that give it an 8, yet they all say they had a blast playing? Maybe things breakdown later on? I'm only 10% through the main quest, but so far I'd give it a 9 since I'm having such a good time playing it.
