Dead Island Review - LAG

"I never liked sandboxes as a kid: the sand got everywhere, I was never any good at sand castles, and every hole I burrowed only achieved to surface cat turds and bird carcasses long thought lost to society. Until recently these memories lay happily dormant in the depths of my brain, but as I played more and more through Techland’s first person zombie sprawl, Dead Island, my annoyance at sandboxes once again awoke inside me – but I’ll get to that later." (Dead Island, PC, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

This game was fun for the first hour or so, but it just dragged on after that. I hated how you couldn't interact with anything in the environment. Don't even get me started with those escort missions. I think I heard, "My resurrected brattahs are great warriahs" about a thousand times.

I got to the Lab and just decided to stop. I realised i'd seen everything the game had to offer after about 5 hours.

I think the game was great, it wasn't perfect but what sandbox games are?

Driving was annoying in this game, it was the largest flaw imo.

I enjoyed everything else, what do you think people would be doing on an island overrun by a zombie infestation, they would be hiding in bunkers and anywhere they could find, and anyone willing to venture out would reap some type of reward for getting things for people..

Survival is what this game was about and it hit it on the head, can you get this for me because this happened..

The combat was very fun, making new weapons was a blast and the list goes on, i'd give the game a solid 8/10 it does have some tech flaws and the DLC should have been out already.

I have to agree with what most other people are saying here. When I first played the game I was surprised by how much fun it was but after playing a few hours I just couldn't bring myself to put the disc back in my PS3. Not that I started hating it or anything, I just found myself always choosing to do or play something else.

The game was dragged down by freezes, bugs and other glitches.
Not to mention the one of the most lackluster endings i've see...(besides Dark Souls)

This game deserves a 6 not 5.5
