8bitfix Review: Dead Island

8bitfix writes: Something disturbing is happening on the rainforest island of Banoi! This beautiful, lush, exotic landscape off the coast of New Guinea is being overrun with something so sinister, so dark, so bloody, Zombies! Noone knows how but zombies have started appearing all over the island of Banoi and with their infectous bite, threaten to genocide the entire island effectively turning this paradise upside down. (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5.0/10

5/10, wow

"In a sense, Dead Island isn't really a unique game, taking our favorite open-world role playing games and just throwing zombies in them."

Why does this remind me of the people who go around calling fallout "Oblivion with guns"

Isn't unique?

Name one open world RPG zombie game with 4 player co-op.

Each mechanic isn't unique, but the collaberation of all the mechanics in one game with zombies? Can't go wrong.

5/10 is a bit harsh.......despite the co-op problems i would give this a solid 8/10 for the SP alone

I really think that this score is ridiculous, This game is buggy as hell, sure, but it's also one of the most enjoyable games I've played all year. Everyone who sees it wants it, I applaud the developers for their efforts, They will sell millions and there will be a sequel to this IP as it's obvious people want it....

I agree with this score completely. Yeah the game is fun when it works, but the number of bugs I'm running into and the nature of the bugs make me subtract major points. Without the bugs, it's a solid 8. And no, it's not unique. It's Borderlands with zombies and bugs. Bugs are strange. I just saw an article about bugs in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I saw no bugs in that game. I see major bugs in this game, but other people on here aren't seeing them or they aren't as numerous or as maddening, so they imply I'm exaggerating. I love zombie games and I have no personal vendetta against these devs or this publisher. It's just the buggiest game I've ever played in my life.

So strange you're seeing so many bugs. In all honesty I have yet to see one. I was about to actually sell the game after a few hours of play but kept playing and now want to keep it. The single player and experience I've gotten so far is a 9/10. Graphics are a bit of a let down but then again it looks great when you ignore small little distractions. 5/10 is way to harsh and proves to me we all just have different tastes.

There are lots a little glitches, some more annoying than others. But nothing game breaking. It deserves 8/10 and a shot at a sequel.

Agreed,5 out of 10 is a joke & puts their past & future review scores in the trash but the game has this game breaking bug in it.
