Dead Island Review - EGM

Dead Island dives in headfirst, delivering one of the most important multiplayer experiences in the current generation

The story is too old to be commented.

wow, that's a score! EDGE should re-review:P

DarkTower8051753d ago

Nah, they shouldn't. This way we know they are at least a consistently crappy company. They should be banned from Metacritic though.

Officially the highest score i've seen so far.

- never mind. SFX is a 9.6. :P

I personally feel like someone FINALLY got the review of this game right, spot on.

The game has a terrific resonance, when your not playing it your thinking about playing it and what mission you want to do next.
This is also the best game I've played to date that has near perfect drop-in drop-out co-op.

No way...at least not for me.

The co-op (PS3) is ridiculously flawed. Constant game drops, lag, flying zombies...It's been pretty bad so far.

(And no, it's not my connection. I'm running 24mbps.)

I agree. My review of Dead Island so far is about a 6.5 because of all the bugs and visual flaws I've encountered. I've lost large amounts of time twice because the game fails to autosave when "game saved" shows on the screen. I've had weapons either vanish into thin air or sit there flashing on the ground while I can't pick them up, once with a good quality shock machete that I had created less than a minute before. I just now found out I lost access to a weapon mod, the deo-bomb, because of another bug. This is the buggiest game I've ever played and these high reviews baffle me.

My personal game of the year so far. The atmosphere, gameplay, RPG elements, horror factor, setting - everything is spot on. Only thing this game could have used is a better story. But when everything else works so perfectly, I can let it slide. It's just fun to play, and you really do think about it all the time when you're not playing. It's quite a testament to the game.

Oh yeach. I am playin with my friends all the time. Loved borderlands but this game with auto lobbing - is far more better ( i thought i'll never gona said that)
