      Escape Dead Island is a major deviation from the series’ past offerings. First-person is traded in for third-person; survival adventure has taken the place of action-RPG; and cel-shaded visuals replace the previous realistic style. Fatshark, the team behind it all, have clearly tried to make their entry stand out in this universe and provide a vastly different experience to f ...

    • Escape Dead Island Review – Get Me Out Of Here

      As far as survival horror zombie games go, it takes a lot to get me excited these days. We’ve seen it done a hundred times a hundred different ways, so when a studio like Fatshark is handed the reins to expand the franchise, it had better have something up their sleeve if it’s going to attract my attention for longer than it takes the kettle to boil.

  • Escape Dead Island Review – Mediocrity in Madness (PS3)

    … as I played, two that required a hard reset on my PS3, and three others that needed me to quit to the XMB and restart the game. Escape Dead Island has a fairly liberal checkpoint system though, so I never found myself with too much time lost, and certainly not as much time lost as some of the unbalanced later encounters in the game that were only…

  • Dead Island 2 and Escape From Dead Island Preview

    … issues placating the release of the first game, and an underwhelming release of a standalone expansion in Dead Island Riptide, can a new developer (Yager for DI2 and Fatshark for Escape) and engine bring the franchise back from the dead (as it were)? Without any certainty, I am hoping it will. At PAX Prime, I got hands on with both DI2 and Escape…

  • Ladies’ Might: War Of The Vikings Add Shieldmaidens

    … Tch! So much for realism. Those silly sausages at Fatshark have only gone dragged their historical man-murdering simulator War of the Vikings into the realms of folklore and mythology by adding fe-male warriors. See, most accounts of Viking ‘shieldmaidens’ come from folklore and legend, with scant few historical records of them, so I don’t even…

  • War of the Vikings Review – Not so deadly

    … within mere months. Even a large, free upgrade and many giveaways didn’t keep player’s attention for long, and War of the Roses is now a forgotten game. This time, developer Fatshark are going to give the series another go with a viking theme, but is War of the Vikings just a palette-swap of its predecessor or a proper upgrade? Just like its…
