The trailer for Dead Island took a game that no one was talking about and made it one of the most anticipated titles of the year. With visceral violence and an emotional story, the short video forced people take notice. C&G had a chance to see the game in action at GDC and I am happy to say that this title is looking strong. It is still early but the combination gameplay they have in the title brings something new to the table. It mixes slasher action, RPG, Shooter and co-op gameplay into a singular experience, and though the game will continue to be perfected, if it can retain the excitement from the GDC demo, the game will prove exhilarating.
