Do you think Dead Island will be a disappointment?

To be honest I now am of the mindset that every game will be a disappointment and that why I use Gamefly to play everything before I decide to buy or not.
The list of lousy let downs is wayy to long probably 5x longer than the list of actually good games.

On paper is my dream come true. After doing some research and watching the videos though there are a few things that personally I don't like about the game. The combat does not seem very interesting and the death penalty is too small which leaves out a lot of the challenge for me. I will give it a shot though, I've had a few games surprise me before so this could turn out to be a hidden gem.

Yes. An FPS game always does that.

IGN's Review is up, and they gave it an 8.0.

Basically they say the game is a little rough around the edges, but is still loads of fun.

8/10 =/= disappointment.

Looks like it will make for a great 19.99 summer game next year.

I second the thought

I think that it would be cool at first, then after I beat it and crap it will get boring because of the "bosses" like what left 4 dead did for me. (really want l4d to have a no boss mode). Itll feel too unrealistic in a sense that if a zombie infection could exsist, their wouldn't be a 10 foot zombie in a strait(?) jacket on a resort island or anywhere (same for L4d) or any other "bosses" on dead island. But ill probably get my moneys worth.
