Escape Dead Island is out and I’m wondering what’s appealing about this game besides blasting zombies. It’s a psychological mystery game with the same psychology issues that all zombie games have. Better to die or live in fear? Who is the enemy – the undead or the living? Ho-big-Hum.
And it’s not only about solving a mystery, but escaping the island. So, Zombie meets Gilligan? Actually, that wouldn’t be a bad premise. Take away the guns, the tech, the vehicles, the computers, everything. You gotta make bombs out of coconuts. Knives out of clam shells. Flame throwers out of bamboo trees. Now, that would be a killer survival Z-horror game.
Almost as awesome as the Best Zombie Video Game Ever.
Escape Dead Island is out now on Windows, PS3 and Xbox 360.
