    Dead Island (Platinum Hits)

    While numerous issues and bugs get in the way, Dead Island is a good zombie slaying time, especially with friends.

    At a glance, Dead Island doesn't seem to be anything special. It looks like yet another first-person shooter with a survival horror theme, a mash up that gamers are all too familiar with. However, in reality, Dead Island... Read Full Review
