Dead Island Review - Gaming Union

Darryl Kaye writes: For everything that's good about Dead Island, there are even more things that are bad. And it's rather disappointing, because at its core, Dead Island is a game that has depicted a zombie apocalypse like no other - it's made it more palpable. It's jut not possible to overlook the disjointed story, uneven gameplay elements and frustrating glitches. Fans of zombies games should definitely check this out, if only for the thrills of the scenario. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7/10

A game that's full of plenty of highs and lows.

reviews over all have been in the 8/10 range so I'm guessing the average gamer will love it.

Why do so many people pick up average games. Get a life. Pick up 2 or 3 real quality titles a year at the most and spend the rest of the time with you know, girls.

Wow, 2-3 games a year?? Let's say each game averages out to about 20 hours playtime. That's like 60 hours a year you get free from having sex with chicks to play videogames. I mean, even when you deduct the time you spend on the Internet bragging to strangers about how much time you spend with girls that can't give you more than a week of 'you time' in any given year.

I can't wait to play it tonight on Steam, I have nothing wrong with playing a game reviewed 7-10. Since when did 7s turn into a bad thing? That's still a respectable score and even if the games not perfect they're saying it's well worth your time. People need to stop being so picky, I know there's other games coming out this month that are probably better but if you like zombies it's worth your money.

The reviews that go 7 or less shit on the game for a weak narrative when clearly the huge part that matters about this game is the gameplay such as combat, quests and exploration tho there have been mention of a few technical issues which is expected from techland (No offence, they just dont have an amazing track record).
Shitting on one element and lowering the games general score is stupid because Im here to game, not watch a f$%king movie. The Gameplay should thus (In most cases and espically in this case) be the biggest factor. This game is being held up as a zombie survival horror rpg so yeah...
Cant wait to rock this and Space Marine on steam. Gona be an amazing week <333333

now the "Average gamer" will like most certainly like it, but I still feel like this game was a missed opportunity to meander away from the action game with zombie typeset and into something more intimate, hence unique.
Unfortunately, I feel like this game is going to fall off the radar sooner rather than later...

Maybe not if the multiplayer keeps it up, but from the 3 reviews I've read so far I'll agree with you, seems a bit like a wasted shot in a great idea.

But since it's getting so much attention, probably will sell enough so they can make the real deal on something like DI 2.

As for myself I'll get it, but only next year when somewhere, sometime, I won't have anything more to play, sounds like a decent game to waste time anyways.

Don't care. I'm still gonna get it. Plenty of 7 out of 10 games that I have enjoyed. Especially in co-op. Thanks for the review though. I've been enjoying reading everyone's different take on this game. Seems you either love it or hate it.
