There’s trouble in paradise – lurching, flesh-eating trouble. Come to the island of Banoi, where the breezes are warm, the beach is inviting, and the locals have a way of turning into cannibal zombies and hunting you down. Join the fight for survival with Dead Island, the phenomenal horror survival game for the Sony PS3. The game lets you take on the role of one of four visitors to Banoi’s premiere resort: football star Logan Carter, former cop Purma, rapper Sam B and concierge turned international spy Xian Mei. Everything is gravy until an infectious plague turns the island’s entire population into ravenous members of the walking dead. Only these four are immune, forcing them to band together and stay alive while seeking a way to contact the outside world. Dead Island allows you to play alone or with friends as you gather weapons like swords, machetes or even guns to fight back the hordes or ravenous undead. Complete missions as you explore the entire island in an open-ended environment that lets you set your own pace and choose which parts of the story you’d like to engage in. If you’re looking to kill zombies, Dead Island has them by the hundreds: lurching your way and ready to tear you apart if you take your eye off the ball. You had better hunt down those weapons fast. Gain experience to buy new skills that enhance your chances of survival, and fight your way to the one of the game’s elite. Dead Island received high critical acclaim when its development company, Deep Silver, first released for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Xbox One and the Sony PlayStation 3 back in 2011. It has since sold more than 5 million copies and become a huge success both on the Xbox and PS3. It’s been followed by three successful sequels – Dead Island Riptide, Escape Dead Island and Dead Island 2 – available on a variety of platforms, and movies and novelizations are in the works as well. The zombie apocalypse genre has been a staple of pop culture since George A. Romero’s landmark film, “Night of the Living Dead” back in 1968. It hit white-hot popularity in 2010 with the TV series, “The Walking Dead,” followed one year later by Dead Island, which brought the horror, excitement and survivalist vibe to the world of console games. Zombie survival stories depict a world gone mad as the dead rise from the grave, forming mindless cannibalistic hordes that cause the collapse of civilization. The heroes need to find a way to survive in a terrifying new environment: finding off the growing legions of zombies, seeking shelter, hunting down weapons to help them and launching quests to find safety and more tools to help them stay alive. That makes it a brilliant environment for role-playing games, allowing you to make the decisions that lead your character to safety and security, or cause him or her to succumb to the horrors that have engulfed the world. That makes the Dead Island game series a great way to experience this exciting and popular genre – and there’s no better place to start than with the game that started it all.
