Sun, sea, sand, and the smell of rotting flesh. The island of Banoi is a beautiful paradise that has been overrun by the flesh-eaters themselves. The game has seen an overwhelming amount of attention since earlier this year with its heart-wrenching trailer, but does the game deserve the same? In a way, yes. Dead Island can be sluggish, uneven, and at times pretty bad. But thanks it incredibly fun gameplay, a huge world to explore and brilliant co-op, Dead Island is worth your time and money.
