Maximum Letdown: Dead Island (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

deadislandLet me make this clear. I don’t hate this game. It’s not even all that bad. My disappointment in this game comes from two main sources. First of all, I hate zombies. How many more times do I have to see them in every single form of media? Now I like Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead as much as the next man, and I get a kick out of Plants vs Zombies. Lately however, every other game, movie, book, novel, and TV show has a tendency to ram the undead down our throats. If it ain’t about banding together to kill the undead hordes and escape, it’s about survival and scavenging supplies. If it ain’t about survival, it’s about how the living are even more dangerous than the undead. Many times it’s all three. Now I can appreciate when a medium of entertainment can do something different with the medium, i.e Zombies mode in Black Ops or Undead Nightmare in Red Dead Redemption. I kinda hoped Dead Island would do the same. Sadly, besides a few nifty ideas here and there, this game does little.

The second reason? See for yourself after the jump

The Dead Island Trailer Will Almost Make You Cry

Or maybe it will go all the way. Depending on if you’re a parent, the sheer horror of the scenario might be over the top, and the soft music with the dramatic events really pack a punch. I can’t say a game trailer has ever taken me by surprise like this.

Dead Island has been in production for several years and promises an open world Zombie infection game with strong action and role playing elements. The game has a glorious trailer and if the writing and visual can match the 3 minutes above, we’ll have a game worth celebrating. That is, if you can actually play it.

Geoff from Achievement Hunter and Red Vs Blue has a similar reaction to mine, watch after the break.
