It's Not Worth Playing for Any Reason Whatsoever: I could bloviate endlessly about the failings of Escape Dead Island. It looks god-awful, even for a last-generation game, with a "graphic novel" style that really boils down to "we didn't put textures on anything." ...It lacks any fast travel, which is hard to read as anything other than a crude attempt at padding out an experience that would be maybe six hours without all the backtracking.

Escape Dead Island was a surprise for me. For a budget title and a spinoff of the series, it’s way better than it should be. Combat was satisfying, exploration was fun, the insanity effects were a trip and the story reaches a point that literally had me questioning not only what was happening, but why Cliff himself was slowly breaking down mentally.

Escape Dead Island should be avoided at all costs. The moment to moment gameplay is intolerable as you have to endure dull combat, an insulting lead character, and redundant backtracking through ugly environments. Pile on the game-stopping technical nightmares, and it all amounts to being one of the worst games of the year. It's not worth digging through corpses to salvage it.
