Very Good

Dead Island

A good overall game but i have found myself having to restart my console with overload glitches. However otherwise this game has a massive free rome land scape alot like Assasins Creed just without the free run ability and has zombies. If your a fan of either Dead Rising, or Left for Dead this is the perfect game for you with almost everything thats needed in real life to survive this situation and has perfectly combined the two games above making the ultimate zombie game.
Pros
good graphics
realistic
exspansive world/island
Cons
weird fight system. Takes time to get used to...
find weird glitches all around making me shut down console and start over from check point.

An Annoyance

How can you have a melee game without a defensive ability. Its sad that your only defense is a jump move that takes stamina. Not to mention your jump is worse than the cliche white mans jump.

Not only that the facial animations are very lacking as well as the character animations. The environment is very blocky looking with a lot of clipping problems. It all just seems very sloppy and rushed.

The driving is terrible, you have no peripherals and when you hit a zombie they go through the car and half the time they dont even die.

However i do admit that chopping up zombies is entertaining in this game. Playing with random people is also fun until you get someone who skips cutscenes and dialog in your game because they can. With all of these other problems its just too distracting to make this a truely good game...5 of 10

Didn't think it was possible to make a zombie game that sucked worse than the Dead Rising games but Dead Island managed it. Worst zombie game ever. Where is L4D3?!!
