Deus Ex Human Revolution or Dead Island?????

What is the general consensus? I want to buy one game (I have Gears of War 3 and ICO & Shadow of the Colossal Collection preorder) but they don't come out until late September. Would you recommend I purchase Deus Ex Human Revolution now or preorder Dead Island? Thank you for any feedback.

If you have friends to play it with then Dead Island. If not, get Deux Ex.

I know that it isn't out until September 6. But if there is any insight to the game based on previews or anything I could still get the preorder bonuses for Dead Island. I didn't want to ask this question on either of the games boards boards due to answers being biased. Thanks again everyone.

Well, Dead Island looks good, and the initial response from many professional sites seem to be positive.
I seriously doubt that it will rate as high as Deus Ex, but if you like zombies, then it will definitely be worth it to pick it up.
I already have mine pre-ordered.

Yeah I heard Deus Ex was really good. I do love killing zombies and Dead Island looks like a lot of fun. I never have trouble picking between 2 games but this is

Unless you absolutely must pre-order, I would wait for reviews of dead island to start coming out before choosing. I myself am deciding whether or not to buy dead island, my favorite game is dead rising, so dead island really interests me but I just can't commit lol.

For what it's worth, Deus ex is great haven't finished it yet, but if you played and liked the previous games, you'll probably love this one.

Wait a bit too see how Dead Island turns out and if the 360 gets any patches for DX.
