From its bittersweet debut trailer to its brutally gore-ified combat, Dead Island has captured the attention of zombie gamer around the globe. Earlier this week it captured my attention for several hours, and I wasn't entirely pleased.
We've seen plenty of Dead Island here at Kotaku since it made a splash earlier this year. Drew Cohen talked about its rich atmosphere. Michael McWhertor called it the "Zombie Apocalypse of (his) Dreams", citing its technical prowess and the overall feeling of being a normal human in the face of overwhelming odds.
