game just released yesterday so maybe a employee error by confusing the vanilla & GOTY but deinitely extreme YMMV on anyone else getting it for that price.

Preordered this when I was going to bite on the 20 dollar regular edition a few weeks ago. Figured 9 more dollars for the complete package why not? I got it today in the mail and amazon sent me the ps3 version instead of the xbox version I ordered. Ugh.

Sure they do, just ask GameCritics.com.

Was really curious how Dead Island was able to push out a GOTY edition when I first heard of it, the article sure helps to confirm what I thought happened.

I received Dead Island for free through a mistake with Impulse. I wasn't interested in the title, but a friend was very interested in it, so I went ahead and played through part of it. It's one of the worst games I've played; and if it deserved any sort of special edition maybe Worst Game of the Year would have been more acceptable.

Calling Dead Island GOTY is an unethical business practice imo.

Clearly, you haven't played Brink which released in that same year...

$28.47 + $3.99 shipping....don't forget that. Title should read $32.46. PS3 and 360 is also under review from Amazon.

I enjoyed the game for its satisfying melee combat. Less so for the crummy RPG crap

Quite correct, but Brink never claimed GOTY.

Amazon has it "under review" whatever that means. Probably a mistake or something.

It's an okay game.

I liked the combat system they had but I don't know the game got tedious after a point?
It's pretty fun if you have a good group of four though.

It's irritating as shit having to wait for someone because they're running around the island like and ass while the rest of the group is waiting for them to come back at the meet point to continue with the quests.

I was planning on buying this game but reading most of your post it seems like the game is utter shit O.o So I guess I won't buy it now.

This game is a snoorefest. The longer the game went on, the more it dragged. The melee combat is the only saving grace of the game, and it is completely uninspired. Pick it up when it is $10, it is really not worth much more.
