Ken McKown writes: Zombies. They have quickly become the popular centerpiece for more than a fair share of games these days. Hell, everything seems to at least feature them in some form or fashion. So when we first heard about Dead Island it was hard to get too excited; another zombie game where you are constantly tearing apart the undead? Big whoop. That was until I actually got my hands on the game and quickly became enthralled with everything it did. All of a sudden, I was on the island, fighting for my survival and collecting quests like there was no tomorrow. Yes, friends. I love Dead Island, and there are plenty of reasons you will too.
