Mad Mack's Dead Island Review - FMV Magazine

"Dead Island is a mid-orgy wank of a game."

So says Dave McConkey in his scathing review over at FMV Magazine, which comes complete with strong language, girls with swords and a cocaine-snorting dog.

Man this one outdid 8bitfix bad review. Sometimes I think some reviewer go in reviewing a game closed minded.

Angrymorgan2490d ago

This is a joke, I wouldn't bother writing any more reviews because you obviously don't know anything about FUN!

Mad_Mack2490d ago

Fun (From

1. a source of enjoyment, amusement, diversion, etc.
2. pleasure, gaiety, or merriment
3. jest or sport (esp in the phrases in or for fun)
fun and games Ironic or facetious amusement; frivolous activity
like fun Informal
a. (adverb) quickly; vigorously
b. (interjection) not at all! certainly not!
make fun of or poke fun at to ridicule or deride
7. (modifier) full of amusement, diversion, gaiety, etc. a fun sport
vb funs, funning, funned
(intr) Informal to act in a joking or sporting manner

Fun is also entirely subjective, and central to ones perception of what is 'fun' is the individual value system, personal tastes, moral upbringing and sense of worth.

You see Angrymorgan, I know lots about fun.

I've obviously hit a nerve mad_mack, I'm not an idiot. I understand that fun is dependent upon ones personal taste, however 99% of the comments say your review is wrong. You can copy/paste the entire Collins English dictionary but that doesn't change the fact that you don't really know what your talking about in this instance.

Again I understand that you have an opinion and your review reflects that. But I wouldn't air your views public if you can't handle a bit of criticism

I agree. 2/10 is way low. Doesn't even add up on a scale properly. This game has issues, but a 20% score is basically saying the game is bad in every department.

farhsa20082490d ago

I know the game has some issues but damn!!!

TopDudeMan2490d ago

2/10? I doubt this review/site/magazine is credible.

IWentBrokeForGaming2490d ago

I still freaking love this game... just a shame Gears 3 came out, lol!

I'm confused!! I've seen a lot of mixed reviews for this game. I think I want it when i see a 9/10 score but then i see other reviews like this that give it a 1 or 2/10, it puts me off. What to do?

mendicant2490d ago

How about deciding for yourself?

Scores are stupid. Read what they actually have to say. If they can't articulate why they feel the way they do then why pay attention to what they have to say?

IWentBrokeForGaming2490d ago

I have the game and I love it. I got it for 360 and from what I've seen, it's thee only version to get sadly. If you also want it that bad, I'd wait till it's at least half off. I think it's a must own title for sure, but for most the urgency to get it just isn't there. But it's a pretty awesome game!

If you're not getting the 360 version, tread at your own risk dude... I hear they are a bit shoddy!
