Man, what a great trailer can do for a video game!

Dead Island is a game that should have been better than it was. Combining RPG elements with supposedly Left 4 Dead like cooperative gameplay, Dead Island isn’t a bad game, it’s just not as good as people were hoping it would be. I played it for awhile with a friend online and thought it was relatively slow, an ironic twist with the fast running zombies. Still though, hacking away at the walking dead, gaining levels, and getting super pissed when you’re awesome weapon breaks is still fun.

Buy this game from Amazon.
