Dead Island Review

Here's a question for you. What's the most important thing you'll need in a zombie apocalypse? Is it a weapon or a medkit? An ability to run really fast? Perhaps even an immunity to the infection, if that's what's making people 'go zombie' like it is here in Dead Island?

No, the most important thing, if you're stuck on the made up island of Banoi is to have loads and loads of cash, because it can do anything. Money can repair your broken weapons, it can provide an incentive to get you to go out there and find things for others and it can also resurrect you when you do get taken out by the undead.

Dead Island Review

Dead Island runs on the dollar and people are gree-f**king-dy. $2,000 for a Dependable Baseball Bat? In a time of crisis? Something seems wrong here. Surely the person everyone seems to be depending on to save them shouldn't have to buy the weapons he or she needs to survive? Wouldn't they just give them up in their own best interests? Or at least trade them so they still have something in case they get attacked?

Anyway, enough of that. For those who are unaware, this is an open world game set on a tropical island that's undergone an unexplained infection that's made 99% of the inhabitants develop a penchant for groaning, eating human flesh and given them the ability to respawn after a few minutes.
