Hey, guys. VGBish here, with some info and a review on Dead Island: Definitive edition for you.

As many of you know, I have had a little time off lately so here is a review which many of you may enjoy.

Now, for some info on the game. Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide have both been remastered to celebrate to upcoming release of Dead Island 2. I have had access to both but due to the lack of storage space on my PC I can only play the first one.

If you don’t know what remastering is, it’s basically slapping a new coat of paint on an old game with updating the graphics engine, smoothing out the system requirements etc.

Now, enough with my boring tech-talk. Let’s get stuck in with the review.

Story: 8
The story leaves a bit to the imagination but it’s still a good story. The market is filled with zombie-related stories at the moment with The Walking Dead, Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead, No More Room In Hell and many more. I am really struggling to find a captivating story with zombies in it but this does a good job.

Graphics: 9
The graphics are really good with this game and it still looks better than the next-gen console versions. Some people may disagree but there is my opinion.

Sounds: 8
Same as the past Dead Island titles – not much differentiation between sounds.

Soundtrack: 10
Between the eerie ambience and the orchestral fight tracks this game has a great soundtrack.

Features: 6
With nothing much changing from the past games this scores a lowly 6 from me

Buy Or Not To Buy: Not To Buy
This game is literally a shinier version of the past titles and it’s harder to run on PC. For that reason, in my opinion, if you’re thinking of buying the game make sure you have a next gen console as they are what these games were designed for.

This has been VGBish and this has been my review – as always have a nice day.
