February is kicking it off right, starting off with a fantastic game, Dead Rising free until February 16 and then Toy Soldiers: Cold War picking that up to finish off the month. This continues the tradition of one free Xbox Retail Game and one free Arcade game a month. The games are only getting better as this continues, since everyone with a Gold subscription (Xbox 360 only, the Xbox One will get their GwG games sometime later) gets 2 free games a month, sometimes with all the DLC.
A holiday paradise gone mad after a zombie outbreak. The player’s only chance to survive is to escape from the island. Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these features are presented in a dark zombie story with a campaign that can be played with up to 4 players in co-op mode.
Metacritic – 71
