(GameFront) Dead Island Review

GameFront, "When that first teaser trailer for Dead Island first showed up so many months ago, it swept over the Internet. In just about a minute and a half, the trailer managed to tell a compelling, heartbreaking story about fear, loss and zombification. Dead Island the game is nothing like that trailer, and I think that was my biggest trouble with it. Not that I expected Dead Island to deliver an emotional and compelling narrative — but I did expect some thought to be put into the narrative of the game at all. Instead, Dead Island is a collection of demanding and uninteresting NPCs that send you off to run their errands, with many zombies making the accomplishing of those always run-of-the-mill tasks rather difficult. The lack of any real incentive to complete all those errands, other than to get more errands to complete, ended up making the game somewhat boring." (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 65/100
