A True Zombie Game
9 September 2011 | by john_jaxsSee all my reviews

In my opinion the people behind Dead Island get what a zombie game is really about. It is about hope, desperation & the willingness to fight on when all you have left is your life and that is all you can expect to get. The fight for survival brings out the best and worst in people. After playing through the whole game I can tell that this game was made by true zombie fans, where a game like Left 4 Dead was made by people who just like shooting a bunch of things (not that is a bad thing). My only problem is that I wish they had focused more on the single player aspect then the CO-OP.

Other then I will say is that this a great game for any true zombie fan and I hope there is a Dead Island 2.
