Pocket-Lint: Dead Island review

Pocket-Lint: Although it's a hugely ambitious affair, Dead Island is writing cheques that the game engine can’t cash, and it will probably be consigned to history as a heroic failure. Undoubtedly set to garner a cult following, it’s essentially the gaming equivalent of a B-Movie. If this were Hollywood, they’d already be talking about a big money American remake. Which might not be the worst idea…

Despite the hype, Dead Island is a technically crippled affair with none of the panache hinted at by the stylish marketing campaign. Nevertheless, for those prepared to overlook its shortcomings, there is a deeply involving role-playing game that lures you into its nightmarish shambling world. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
