Looks like fun, but I think I would soon get bored. I might pick it up somewhere down the line if only for the 4 way co op, assuming you actually give it a good review that is.

Don't want to waste my own money after all. tongue

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

From the looks of it you need to view the game as if you were looking at borderlands IMO, it looks kinda similar except the outside gameplay is different, seems similar concepts and such.

I wasnt impressed with IGN's review though, i get the feeling they arent telling the full story about how the game is (gameplay etc) and its flaws, Guesty would be disappointed wink

lol, nah you can keep the crown, i'm just poking the IGN review for some proper info wink

2 more reviews appeared, 1 from a PS3 italy place they give it 80 or 85 i forget and the other place was a czech place and give it 80, seems like 60 to <90 will probably be the bracket for the game (i'm pre-empting the inevitable no mark places that will have a whine about pop in and stuff).

So from the looks of it no means bad, best played in coop, otherwise enjoyable. Numerous places citing its like fallout 3 meets l4d. Personally I would have gone for dead rising 2 + l4d + borderlands

Another 8.5, loses points for story (do we really care? its not mass effect or deus ex) and a few bugs no mention of pop in textures but otherwise solid.

Seems like this might be a good purchase after all assuming you can occasionally pull in abit of company to help out with zombie killing and some light conversation.

Im looking forward to it Falcon and so far reviews have been pretty favourable so i am sold and pre/order has not been cancelled.

One thing i do hope they do with the future download content would be to give you a lot more guns and unlimited ammo..................That would be great ?

Would be a nice surprise if something like this was unlocked when the game gets completed.

imagine how much fun it would be just using some high powered guns,I know it's suppose to be up close and personal but I think it would be great to play through the game again fully loaded

Edge Review Dead Island and its a Shock Score ?


[re: time2die] [link to this post]
 
Well may be its not Because Edge are seriously loosing a lot of cred in my books,lowest score i have seen so far is a 7 from Euro gamer which are another site known for average scores,but edge have actually given Dead Island a 3/10.tongue

Resistance 3 mrnelster on the other hand is getting some really high scores across the board and if Edge has any credibility left and if what they say is true i may be spending a lot more time with Resistance than Dead Island.

Did you get a chance to read the reason/s behind the low score?
