GamersHell - Dead Island Review

Without scare, engaging story, logical delivery of events or characters, and a melee weapon system that causes more aggression towards its degradation mechanics than tension while in the game, Dead Island only amounts to hours-worth of doing the same repetitive action: killing zombies. It can be fun for a bit, and the outdoor environments look gorgeous (the recycled human models, not so much), but Dead Island doesn't offer much else. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.5/10

Totally agree. It has some major flaws, don't get me wrong, but it's a ton of fun and is huge compared to other modern games.

8.5 + for me too, I nearly crapped my pants last night when I got in a car and zombies came running from everywhere and surrounded me.

They started smashing the windows so I drove off smashed the car up 20 yards down the road and had to fend them off with my bare hands.

Awesome game.

Finally a score I agree with. This game is a buggy mess, at least on PS3, and the patch has incredibly made it even worse. I love the premise and, when the bugs and visual problems aren't ruining the experience, the zombie killing is visceral and fun. They should have let us customize our own characters and level them up however we want to, Elder Scrolls style. This is a huge letdown for a zombie lover like myself. It could have been great.

I have the PC version and am really enjoying it, not found too many bugs.

Never played the console version though.

Game is original and fun, while its on the border of too easy at first once u progress it becomed brutal (while no where near the same as demon soul) but it adds a certain feeling of motivation to kill the zombie who kills you. I had my doubts for a first person melee type game, I had a impulse to preorder at the last second and am I glad I did its been consuming my late nights since. I am eagerly awaiting news of a sequel from deep silver. Happy to see them redeem themselves after call of juarez I was dissapointed
