4Player Review: Dead Island

4Player-"It’s quite possible that the first Dead Island trailer might just be the best and the worst thing that could of happened to this game. As much as it was fun to watch, I fear that it may not prepare people to accept it in its final state; to understand what Dead Island actually is and to fall in love with both its horror and its absurdity. For their part, Techland probably would have been better off falling in love with the absurdity a little more themselves, and crafting a tale that didn’t take itself so seriously as to stand in harsh contrast to the gameplay beneath it.

And that gameplay is, without a doubt, some of the best survival-horror gameplay I’ve experienced to date. The fact of the matter is, Dead Island is an emotional game, but it has nothing to do with the emotions of the characters in it. It is the feeling you get when you have a “flimsy stick,” no money, and you need to go from one end of the city to the other with hundreds of infected dead standing in your way. That emotion is fear. Something Dead Island gets right." (Dead Island, Xbox 360) 85/100

This game could be awesome when it's not infested with horrible performance and game breaking bugs. Just pick it up months from now from the bargin bin get yourself a great a deal.

I'm here to play games, not to support the greedy and lazy devs who crank out buggy infested games. This kind of dev doesn't deserve any support.

Lol, whoa man, calm down. I agree with Fanboi. Why grab a game now that I've heard scattered reports is loaded with bugs? What does "deserving" to play it have to do with anything?

LOL sorry I just hate to see great ideas go down the toilet because of a lousy Quality control team or cheap ass publisher who rushes shit but are you saying bethesdas games suck as well?they have the most bugs in all of gaming lol yet they make classics
