Age Rating: ESRB Mature | PEGI 18

When they're not mired in controversy, Techland also make games, including their wildly successful open world action-RPG Dead Island. Set on a lush tropical resort ('lush' is a word which here means 'ravaged by zombies'), the game plays out like a more tense, violent version of Borderlands, with four different character classes and co-op throughout the lengthy story.

It's not without its flaws, but as one of the few games to get zombies right (albeit fast zombies, but we won't go into that here), Dead Island is a satisfyingly gory experience worthy of any survival horror or action-RPG fan's time.

A sluggish interface, weak guns and a few dull sewers can’t slow this game down. Dead Island is huge, bloody and beautiful.
