ImpulseGamer: Dead Island Review

Underneath the rough outer shell of the game that is Dead Island waits a surprising hidden gem of fun survival horror gaming. Some may foo foo and point out that it has elements of Left 4 Dead, and Dead Rising… with the whole team work and making specialized weapons thing. Those that look at the superficial similarities are spending too much time worrying about that and not enough time plumbing the solid fun survival style adventure they have in Dead Island. Over 20 years ago when I wrote one of my first roleplaying game books a veteran of the roleplaying industry told me that there are no brand new ideas just new ways in how they are utilized. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.3/10

I haven't read many, but this is one of the first properly positive reviews I've read about the game. (nothing against the writers just the game itself)
