Dead Island Review | The Controller Online

The Controller Online reviews Dead Island:

"Remember when Techland released the first trailer for Dead Island, and we were all blown away? Then they released the not so great Call of Juarez The Cartel and we were worried that Dead Island would suffer the same fate? Well now that Dead Island is finally out, is it actually any good? Yes, yes it is. "

The reviews range from 3-9.5 for this game lol. I don't recall a game with such mixed reviews for some time.

YodaCracker2690d ago

Deadly Premonition's reviews range from 2 - 10

MARKUS_MAX1MUS2690d ago (Edited 2690d ago )

thats because some reviews are marked out of 5 and some are marked out of 10 -_-

Sure is a mixed one.

'Dead Island plays like a great mix of Fallout, Borderlands, Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising. All great games on their own but spliced together you get an amazing journey of survival horror in Dead Island. With a lengthy campaign to be played alone or online cooperatively, plenty of collectibles to be found and a huge island to explore, you are going to be playing this for a while, and loving every minute of it.'

Spot on.

I can't stop raving about this game!!

And I just found out I haven't even left the first area!

btw, i also got x360 version, despite seeing the Head2Head yesterday. I think both versions must have texture issues in the beginning scenes, cause it's just lag. and it does not happen after your intro the game. Looks GREAT!

It's really hard to not love this game, unless you hate having fun.

Big_Dom2690d ago

9.5 for a game like this? So it's more or less up there with the best FPS this generation, then? A score like 9.5 should not be dished out like it's flavour of the month or something, because that seems to be the trend with reviews these days for every other game that comes out. Proof that gaming journalism has gone down the shitter big style.

I am playing it on PC and so far I dont think its worth a 9.5 at all. Wouldnt agree with the Edge score,3/10, but they arent half wrong IMO

Big_Dom2690d ago

Oh look! - 3 disagrees from kids born after the year 2000 already.

BattleTorn2690d ago

I really think it's that good!

it has it's flaws, but none-the-less Great!

FPS is so widely used these days, i definitly think it's one of the better FPSs in a while.

idk why, but Fallout3+Dead Rising (F3 being my fav) does seem fitting to describe

antz11042690d ago

So Im curious, have you played it?

I have, and from what I've seen its a very innovative game that draws from a lot of different games, like Borderlands, L4D, and Fallout 3. All of which respectively earned a rough score between 9 and 10 and are all very well blended here. As a die hard L4D fan I was skeptical at first but am very satisfied with DI.
