Took first crack at Dead Island last night. I will say that I had my reservations about playing a first person zombie RPG, especially one that relies primarily on melee combat. But somehow it works. The title is not without its bugs, another month or two of polish would have helped out a lot, but the game is still functional and aesthetically pleasing. As far as immersion goes, I felt as involved as I was in FarCry 2. Looking forward to a run through single player.
