"As you can tell the zombie apocalypse is very near and for some weird reason I was able to survive and get away. Not sure how lucky it will be for you when you’re stuck on an island with everything that wants you dead or just wants to give you a killer hug for your brains. This is one game that will have you playing hours upon hours with friends. In Dead Island it’s going to be one crazy and F’d up adventure as you try to figure out what caused this damn problem, how to fix it and how the hell to get off the island if it’s possible. Yes, you must be thinking, “holy crap Andrew I’ve never seen you use words like that.” I’ve been spending so many hours playing solo, with friends online and enjoying every minute I’ve spent with the game. Hell I’ve got to see Jim Sterling from Destructoid create a knife that has a 75% chance of head exploding. Now isn’t that some cool shit and who wouldn’t want a weapon like that?"
