Personally I loved the game, but like I said I didn’t read any of the hype about it so I don’t have built up expectations. I do have a feeling that your hardcore zombie fans might be a little disappointed after all the hype of the trailer, and the RPG element might not suit some people, but it’s definitely worth a play.

It's nice to see another RPG entry for this console generation. Its kept my love gaming alive ever since I played 'Legend of the Red Dr Techland doesn't disappoint here by hitting most of the points ne RPG and adding in some new ideas, like analog melee combat. I definitely suggest you take this one into consideration.

Dead Island is an addictive whirlwind of action, blood and gore, set on a gorgeous tropical landscape packed to the brim with content and, most importantly, zombies. And boy do those zombies hate your guts! They are relentlessly sinister and aggressive, and the game does a fantastic job in keeping survival the number one core objective. Unfortunately, some pretty serious presentation issues hamper the game, and the melee system is hit-and-miss in the game’s opening acts. Those issues aside, Dead Island has too much going for it to be overly hampered by those concerns, and its addictive character progression and mission structure make it a holiday destination well worth saving up for.

Tenant à la fois de Dead Rising pour ses armes improvisées, Left 4 Dead pour son multi coopératif, Oblivion pour ses nombreuses quêtes, et Resident Evil pour ses poussées d'adrénaline, Dead Island devrait séduire sans mal les fans de survival horror en mal de titres à se mettre sous la dent. Si certains pointeront à juste titre le peu d'originalité du titre de Techland, force est de constater que le plaisir de jeu est bel et bien présent une fois le pad en main, qui plus est lorsque quatre joueurs coopèrent en ligne. Bref, les amateurs de zombies n'ont aucune excuse pour manquer ce voyage atypique à Banoi, d'autant que les titres du genre ne sont pas légion ces temps-ci sur nos machines.

Reprenant des idées à Dead Rising, Left for Dead ou bien encore Resident Evil, Dead Island se présentait de lui-même comme un melting-pot auréolé d'une ambiance bien kitchoune héritière de multiples films de séries B. Eh bien, c'est tout à fait ça même si ceci constitue indéniablement autant de points positifs. Ainsi, grâce à son atmosphère délectable, son système de jeu bien pensé et la possibilité d'y jouer en multi., le titre de Techland aura tôt fait de vous hypnotiser. Du moment que ça ne débouche pas sur une morsure, on aurait donc tort de s'en priver.

Er du hypp på noe litt utenom det vanlige, eller bare har lyst til å slå inn skallen på femten hundre hjernedøde monstre, kan jeg med hånden på hjertet anbefale Dead Island. En kunne selvfølgelig klage på litt lite variasjon, men der det mangler variasjon gjør det seg godt igjen med å gi deg en dose god gammeldags moro. Det er også et av de mest voldeligste spillene jeg har spilt på en stund, så hvis du er som meg og blir litt uvel av blod, da er det bare å ha bøtta klar.

Dead Island er et rigtig solidt udspil. Indholdsmængden er også helt i top, og vil man klare alle sidemissioner, kan man snildt hive mere end 20 timers spilletid ud af det. Som sagt er de første par timer ret ensformige, på grænsen til det kedelige, men når først det rigtig er kommet i gang, er det svært at lægge fra sig. Takket være sin blanding af genrer fremstår det som alt andet end bare endnu et zombiespil i en endeløs række, og den glimrende co-op er bare flødeskum på toppen af kagen. Dead Island er et spil, du roligt kan smide dine penge efter.

Dead Island probably won't win any game of the year awards. It's got visual bugs, the controls take a bit to feel normal, and the presentation in general isn't up to snuff. But the game gets a lot right. There is a huge world to explore, thousands of zombies to kill, and tons of side quests to take. Here on the other side of a 25-hour playthrough -- where I skipped a lot of side quests after Act 1 -- I'm anxious to get back into Dead Island, and despite the game's flaws, that's not something I say often.

Dead Island could have been a brilliant title, and indeed we Techland have been patching the game to fix many issues, but I not a horrible mess, and we had quite a bit of fun, so we still recommend this to fans of zombie and melee combat games.

Ouf, le jeu de Techland n’est pas un jeu de zombies de plus. Puisant ses idées ici ou là, Dead Island apparaît comme un titre immersif à la lisière de différents types de jeux entre le survival, le FPS, le RPG et le jeu à monde ouvert. Et si on aurait pu penser que le jeu s’écroulerait sous le poids de son ambition, il s’en sort avec les honneurs, aussi bien sur la forme que sur le fond.

In the end, it’s something that should really be applauded for its depth and ambition. Behind the scenes, the game seems to work remarkably well most of the time. There’s also plenty to do in it, so you’re definitely getting value for money if that’s a concern. Apparently, I played 20 hours into it on one playthrough with friends. It’s definitely not forne, even if it tries to be, but it is definitely a curiosity and a serviceable co-op game.

I slutändan har jag ändå väldigt roligt med Dead Island, en trave brister till trots. Att gå in i en mörk och blodstänkt bungalow med halmtak, endast upplyst av en flimrande TV med havet skvalpande i bakgrunden medan man hör väsande andetag i närheten är en härlig känsla. Techland har gjort ett gott arbete med det grafiska och man kan nästan känna den ingrodda stanken av både zombies och charter genom skärmen. Skrämseleffekterna låter heller inte skämmas för sig liksom det massiva innehållet av saker att göra och utforska. Kort sagt är odött patrask som vanligt det bästa resesällskap man som gamer kan önska sig.

As a sandbox action role-playing game based on killing zombies with friends, Dead Island is a proposition rich with possibilities, and it exploits a good deal of them, if imperfectly. There's easily 20 hours of content in a single playthrough--much more if you're exploring the Polynesian paradise sandbox and messing around with trucks as much as you should be. If you don't step off the boat expecting a taut horror experience, a masterful gun game, or compelling characters, you'll have a bloody good time.
