    Dead Island: Retro Revenge is a short but good game that is fun if you give it a chance.

    We’re comfortable recommending this title to gamers looking for a quick fix of solid, 2D beat-’em-up action without many frills.

    Dead Island: Retro Revenge won't set the world on fire, but it's a very solid and enjoyable, endless runner-style game. It's challenging, action-packed and filled to the brim with blood and guts, while also featuring an immersive score attack system.

    The concept is reasonably well-executed, but this isn’t the kind of experience that gives you a lot to sink your teeth into. Still, as a bonus thrown in with another game and made available as a super-cheap download, it is easily worth its asking price.

    It’s got a great retro vibe and the aesthetic is beautiful. Sadly, the runner mechanics take away the fun and goodwill, leaving it as forgettable as the Dead Island franchise itself.

    Overall Dead Island Retro Revenge is an awesome addition to the franchise and I enjoyed spending some time playing through the challenging stages. Its certainly not as deep and diverse as the main games but it offers a something a bit different.
