Way back in February a trailer went up for Dead Island which received a lot of press as it was put together very well and added a little more emotion to a genre which only tends to consider brains as a food item.  Ars Technica has hd a chance to play through the game both on their own and in co-op mode and are satisifed that this is not a case of Dead Rising meets Left4Dead.  This serious yet light hearted game will be available come early fall, hopefully with a demo released before that.

"Dead Island takes place on a beautiful tropical island, and you are tasked with taking control of one of four characters to do your best to survive an outbreak of zombies. The game features a wide-open world to explore, but while it may be constantly compared to other games like Dead Rising, it successfully manages to feel like its own game. I've had the chance to play the single-player game, as well as take the four-player co-op play for a test drive, and I've enjoyed both."

Never be a big zombie game fan but this looks like it might be fun to play.
