i would give this game a 8.9/10 but good review.
Thanks for the advice to all above... the game does look good.... and it does involve killing Zombies.... so I will have to pick it up!
If you have friends to play it online with it's an absolute must have. It's the most co-op fun I've had since Borderlands but like Borderlands it's almost useless as a single player game.
I played Borderlands through on my own, and although I enjoyed it, I agree it was much better as a co-op game.... although I only played co-op with strangers and that was crap as they just mostly acted like twats. I have recently started playing Borderlands again in splitscreen with the new girl I am seeing and that is fun, but it is a shame that Dead Island is not split screen as that would make it a definite buy for me tomorrow for that very reason!
