    A challenging game that doesn't challenge you.

    Rated on February 26, 2012 by dahaoleboy69

    Dead Island - like I said in the review deck, is a challenging game with no challenge. Sure that may not make sense to people who have never played the game yet, but people who have probably know wha...

    Dead Island is a great game, even thought it has it's flaws...

    Dead Island is all about killing lots of zombies with tons of all sort of weapons. The main focus is on melee weapons, however firearms do exist too. Right at the start of the game you will need to pi...

    For most, Banoi is hell on Earth – for me it's paradise as I want to wallop zombies in more ways than one.

    Fun to play, good replayability and immersive gameplay and story.<br /> The main drawback, game is short somehow.

    At first I thought it would be just one more game like the thousand others of zombies, with all the stereotypes and so on... And to tell you the truth, it has all that! Still, this game is quite fun...

    It's a decent game, but it could've been better.

    Alright I just finished the game and this is my review of "Dead Island". Ok first of all, to all those who've seen the trailer and haven't seen the actual game yet, don't be fooled! The game isn't emo...

    A classic RPG fan? This game is probably not for you.

    Rated on May 23, 2012 by godfather830

    It's hard for me to understand what others enjoy about this game. I purchased it on sale for $12, and to be honest, I only played it for two hours. That's the maximum amount of time I could tolerate p...

    A fun and disconnecting game, the perfect break for all other serious games

    Ill mention only the good parts, because all the bad ones were already mentioned by others. It is fun to play, truly disconnecting, anger management satisfying and overall a great game to play as a g...

    Well... This is my Dead Island Review...

    Rated on June 23, 2012 by LaTOUNGa

    Dead Island is a good and solid game, but it is disappointing. One thing I must admit, I got really hyped when I saw the first trailer, it was amazing. Two weeks after the game release, I got it on my...

    Pure fun, even with it's high degree of consolitis.

    Rated on July 12, 2012 by vegard1985

    First played it not long after release, and couldn't really decide if I liked it, loved it or hated it. Played through as the Asian babe and sliced my way to victory. For me, the biggest problem w...

    Dead Island is a game that combines somewhat survival horror elements with an interesting Role Playing mechanic.
