Latest Dead Island Screenshots! Blood and/or guts!
There’s this island, right, and it’s being overrun by the dead. Insensitive people might even call it Dead Island.
I think we all know what to expect from this game. Hitting zombies with things, gratuitous violence, Hawaiian shirts. The trailer was a massive hit thanks to it’s rather soulful and artsy depiction of events in the game, but there is frankly no such thing as a serious zombie game or film. You can be sad about all the dead people if you like, but you still have a game where dead bodies charge around with all the realism of a boat-centaur hybrid. Some of the dead bodies, it would seem, have developed special powers, like the power to be in a straight jacket. You know, they’re even producing a novelisation. Really? ‘John smashed the zombie’s face in with a lamp. It was sticky. Damn, he thought, I’m so upset by all these zombies.’
To enjoy Dead Island, I feel we should focus on the simple, unadulterated fun aspects. Let’s not detract from what will sell this game- amusing ways to fight zombies, and lovely graphics. Speaking of which, here are some new screenshots! Click for the full-size versions.
