Dead Island Review (PlanetXbox360)

Producing a one-of-a-kind trailer for an upcoming video game is a smart idea, but it can also come back and bite you in the ass if said product doesn’t live up to the hype. This was a concern for us when we first saw the opening for Dead Island for the first time (not counting the trailer 5 years ago, which is how long some version of this game has been in development), showcasing a family that eventually came to pieces (literally) at the hands of a zombie attack. We were sitting around the office wondering, “So…what if the game doesn’t live up to the hype?” Well, now that it’s arrived, that collective sigh of relief is settling in. This game is damn good, and more than lives up to the hype. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.1/10

Totally psyched to see all the role-playing elements.

Picking this up tonight, only 6 years in development but much better than duke Nukem; so should I go 360, ps3, or pc and why?

If you want to play with friends then pick the platform your friends have, if not get it on PC for the best graphics.... jeez, why can't people apply their own logic to simple decisions!

Go for xbox360 it's the number 1 choice for gamers and has the best Online Service (Xbox Live)
OR
PS3 which i wouldn't recommend not because i hate it well its just that it has the worst Online Service (PSN) and most of the games are Generic.
OR
U can go for the PC which is close 2nd behind xbox360 only draw back it lacks Xbox LIVE and decent Games.

zombies, islands, its the two best things in life in one game but it's by deepsilver/techland and i dont really trust those guys to make good games

Got it today. The game is amazing. Playing it solo so far and it's scary as hell. It actually made me scream already - and this is coming from someone who has only screamed at the early Resident Evil and Silent Hill titles. RPG elements and questing are great. Oh, I'm playing on PS3, and I've noticed no noticeable glitches, bugs, or performance issues. Get this game!
