This is Save and Quit's Dead Island review.
Save and Quit... that's ironic, since you can't do that with Dead Island and the game's autosave may or may not work. I've now lost more than an hour of gameplay five times due to the autosave. Weapons that I upgrade and modify vanish into thin air. Zombies run through walls and vanish, sometimes popping up out the ground a few moments later. I've lost my chance at two different weapon mods because of bugs. At least the online play was smooth... until the patch... now the game freezes every five minutes. These devs should be ashamed and this game shouldn't get higher than a 5 as a score. I was giving it a 6.5 until the patch. Man what a waste of money. I'm talking about the PS3 version by the way. The only reasons I'm still playing it are because I love zombie games and because it would make me angry to get less than a full refund for this trash. This is the buggiest game I've ever played by ten miles.
You must never have played Fallout: New Vegas. Now, that was unplayably buggy. I haven't had any bug problems with this. Maybe the Xbox version is less buggy?
