MMGN writes: Dead Island is an addictive whirlwind of action, blood and gore, set on a gorgeous tropical landscape packed to the brim with content and, most importantly, zombies. And boy do those zombies hate your guts! They are relentlessly sinister and aggressive, and the game does a fantastic job in keeping survival the number one core objective. Unfortunately, some pretty serious presentation issues hamper the game, and the melee system is hit-and-miss in the game’s opening acts. Those issues aside, Dead Island has too much going for it to be overly hampered by those concerns, and its addictive character progression and mission structure make it a holiday destination well worth saving up for.
