Summary

Escape Dead Island is a Survival-Mystery game set on the enigmatic island of Narapela after the events of the zombie outbreak of the original Dead Island. The story lets players unravel the origins of the zombie virus through the eyes of the would-be documentary journalist Cliff Calo. There are no superpowers to keep Cliff alive, just a few makeshift weapons against hordes of infected zombies. It will be integral to choosing wisely between stealth and combat at certain moments in the game.

Escape Dead Island never manages to create anything impressive, with very little in terms of redeeming qualities. It tries to stand out from the other installments in several ways by taking on a new direction, but it ends up providing a frustrating and bland experience that is easy to recommend skipping.

As an origin tale, Escape Dead Island is hampered by an issue common to the zombie genre: the appeal of the narrative focusing on the characters' day-to-day survival, combined with little attention being given to finding a remedy to stop the outbreak. ...There was enough exposition by game's end and whatever mysteries were left unsolved left me feeling indifferent.

Escape Dead Island completely ignores what makes a Dead Island game fun: there’s no sense of dread and the highly enjoyable crafting system is nowhere to be seen. Hell, there’s not even a co-op option. What we do have is a boring linear experience with one-dimensional characters and rickety combat.
