Gamer Limit Review: Dead Island

After all the hype, Dead Island mostly teeters between the extremes of awesome immersion and near rage inducing frustration, creating what can best be described as a love-hate relationship with the player.

Dead Island tells a raw story of how the unprepared can survive amidst a world overrun by the death. The fact that it’s a first person RPG puts the player even closer to its visceral psychology. Whereas other zombie games before it tell of corporate and government conspiracy; or they caricature the theme with main characters that are unnaturally strong and durable to deliver a cartoon-like experience; or they just provide vapid arcade style zombie killing. The pure survival approach makes this game unique in its own way, salvaging some of it’s dignity. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

The first paragraph sums it up well. Once I realised to just jump on a car bonnet and swing the tension went away. I don't really like it but i'm still playing. It is a real slog though.

how many hours have you played? because when you get further into the game it starts spamming infected at you and if your on a roof they will find a way to you, a car is not a safe place at all....
