EGM Now and this thread on GameFaqs.com both discuss how Dead Island is unavailable for purchase at most retailers. Most likely that’s because the game is going to be a smash hit even though reviews have been less than favorable. I think it looks quite amazing honestly. A fresh take on the zombie genre, mixed with Oblivion style gameplay elements can’t really be a bad thing can it? Really any game with zombies gets my attention, and if sales are any indication, Dead Island merits it.
