Dead Island gets released this week and it's only right that reviews start showing up on the net. Some praise it, some are frustrated by it in a technical level but so far it's currently more on the positive side. Not perfect scores, but not horribly low ones either. Here's a list of review scores so far..
IGN - 8.0
Eurogamer - 6/10
Gameinformer - 8.5
Destructioid - 7/10
Gametrailers - 8.5/10
Ausgamers - 8.1/10
Joystiq - 3/5
From what I've been reading, the game has been getting praise on what it's meant to give, some good co-op zombie slaying fun. Add skill trees, level ups, 30+ hours of game time, and a choice for a new game+ after? man I can see myself already getting lost in this game with a couple of friends. The biggest issues most of the reviews mentions are quest bugs, glitches, voice acting, and a story that I too will ignore when I start playing. I expect the story to be in the same level as Borderlands, horrible.
Reading these reviews just sealed the deal if I wanted to buy the game on day one. Interested in the game? nice! but to get the full effect of Dead Island, I suggest you find a friend or three. Dead Island is out tom Sept 6 on NA, and will be out for the rest of the world on Sept 9 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
