Like its shuffling, decayed antagonists, DeadIsland just won’t die. We’re cautiously optimistic that Yager can improve the fortunes of a series with a current average Edge score of 3, but the same can’t be said for this thirdperson action game from WarOfTheVikings developer Fatshark. Seemingly borrowing from the likes of MadWorld and DeadRising, this “survival mystery” will tell the origin of Banoi’s zombie outbreak; we’d be much more interested in the end of it.
