    I would wholeheartedly recommend this game to newcomers but not so much to returning players. It’s a lot of fun no matter what but Dead Island is much more enjoyable the first time around. Just take that into account when making a purchasing decision.

    I played Dead Island back in 2011, when it originally came out, and only made it through a third of the game. I can't remember why I lostI played Dead Island back in 2011, when it originally came out, and only made it through a third of the game. I can't remember why I lost interest, but I was excited to try it again after falling in love with Dying Light in 2015. I have only played about an hour so far, but I'm very disappointed that a remastered game from 5 years ago can have screen tearing as bad as this does. I definitely won't be purchasing Dead Island 2 on day 1 if this is the quality of product that they find acceptable. Full Review »
