Dead Island reviews are up - Some good, some bad..
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.
