  • Summary: Narapela is chock full of areas for you to explore, but you must make sure you have the correct tools to access them and weapons to survive. Make sure you take pictures and look for clues. Cliff is on Narapela to get a story, and piecing together the evidence is the way to make sense of it all.

    Escape Dead Island was a surprise for me. For a budget title and a spinoff of the series, it’s way better than it should be.

    Escape Dead Island is a decent game, but nothing more (though also nothing less).

    There isn't much reason to play Escape Dead Island. The narrative has a few standout moments and you'll occasionally meet an enemy that will throw you for a loop. Those moments are, unfortunately, needles in a haystack of monotonous gameplay that's ultimately boring.

    I’m going to be honest with you, I haven’t finished Escape Dead Island yet. I just can’t bring myself to. The game plods along at a snail’s pace and just never hooks you. It’s certainly not the worst game I have ever played, but it’s bland and generic and feels rushed and unfocused.

    Escape Dead Island is a terrible game with substandard graphics, unimaginative and rigid gameplay, convoluted story and unforgivable optimization issues.

    The developer attempts to justify non sequiturs with a psychological narrative that distorts reality, but the twists only become more and more meaningless as the escape progresses.

    Frankly, Escape Dead Island doesn't deserve another second of my time, and I hope to all that is holy it doesn't get a single second of yours.

    Much better than the review make it look. I expected playing some crap and quitting after 15min based on reviews, but ended up completing itMuch better than the review make it look. I expected playing some crap and quitting after 15min based on reviews, but ended up completing it and having a blast doing so. Story is interesting, there's no dead moments, it always keep going and adding new stuff and fckeup events. I would even say presentation of the story is better than the Dead Island game. Gameplay is fast and shooting action is tight. Level design are great.

    Not worth a 10, but I'm balancing for these whining kids who don't know what's good and what's not.

    The only thing I really like about this game is the cel-shading.

    I love Dead Island brand, but what the f**k is this???
    the story is simple, the onoric parts are very boring and disturbing,why there isn't the level? In definitive:
    -You can't upgrade yourself.
    -You can't level up.
    -zombies copied by Left 4 Dead.
    -you can't craft weapons.
    -Last but not least, this game isn't fun.
    the only thing that i have appreciate is the good cel shading graphics, very bad =(

    Stop with the Dead Island games already. They have now been done to death (no pun intended). Graphically... you are not the 'Walking Dead'Stop with the Dead Island games already. They have now been done to death (no pun intended). Graphically... you are not the 'Walking Dead' Telltale series.

    I enjoyed No. 1, I loathed No. 2 and this....

    Must...finish... review...

    UTTER GARBAGE. I will not preorder any Dead Island game after this pile of sh*t. Deep Silver advertised the crap out of it on Facebook untilUTTER GARBAGE. I will not preorder any Dead Island game after this pile of sh*t. Deep Silver advertised the crap out of it on Facebook until it released and then completely ignored that they released such a horrible "game." DO NOT BUY. Even if it's a $2 game, don't get it on principle. F*ck that Fatshark "development" team. Expand
