Do ?the lower review scores boil down to hardware with Ps3?s being outdated by the latest gaming computers? Game saving bug glitches? Is Worthplayings 5.5 out of 10 review worthy of a rereview considering how much they focused on the release day bugs?

We could close up with the usual ?teh revieworz suxs? rant as we are all huge Dead Island fanboys, but the lingering thought of ?what if the game wasn?t rushed out to release with more bugs than a craigslist hooker??
