Product Details:

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 gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode. Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player's ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction. In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan's fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game's unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What's more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay. With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland's acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, But Could Have Been Better I have been a zombie fan for a while, and when Dead Island came out I bought it immediately. At first I was very impressed with the game. The graphics were good, the classes were cool, and killing zombies was enjoyable. After a while though I found myself getting angry at the bugs and the fact that my weapons would break after a few kills. What made up for its negatives was the multiplayer. Being able to play with friends at anytime was helpful because it was not a hassle to have to set up a game lobby like other games. Overall this game is enjoyable minus the few negatives. Definitely a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, yes, yes. If you are a big fan of horror survivor games then you have to try this one, Lets start with gameplay: Their are 4 different characters types that you get to pick from the beginning each character has its own background and has its own unique abilities that differ from the other 3. The game play is pretty basic Yes same like many horror survival games but why did i give this one 9*'s? well due to the fact that you have large amount of weapons each having its own attributes but not only is there many weapons you can customize them with the right tools another plus for gameplay is that you have an attribute tree with different lvl's and abilities that help you through out the game. you can drive a truck and run over zombies all the way to electrocute your enemies or burn them up with a Molotov. Graphics are good if you take time and look at many other games this one has pretty good graphics. Lasting appeal i give it a 9 since i will be expecting a sequel to this one... Is it worth the 40$'s? well Yes if you are love horror survival games plus i forgot to mention you play this game in online CO-OP mode were as other players join you in missions. Would i recommend this game to any one? Yes!!! you dont have to wait for a price drop i would get it now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good but with a few flaws. I got the steam copy of this game, and besides a vanishing NPC, I never ran into any bugs or glitches. Dead island is pretty much what it was marketed as: an open world zombie game. The graphics aren't mind blowing, but they don't detract from the game either. The gore effects are great, and I have no complaints about the combat, other than the guns are pretty bad, and PC users can't use anolog fighting unless they have a gaming controller. The story was pretty shallow, so don't buy this game looking for a masterpiece. It has a few touching moments that clarify the paradise in ruins. The RPG feel of this game is pretty sound, you level up fast enough so the mostly passive skills you get are rewarding. A few complaints that I have are that none of the 4 characters you can chose from are likable at all. In fact the world would be a better place if all 4 of these "heroes" were zombies themselves. Zombies are almost always in sets of 3-4 so the only time I ever was running through the cramped streets with a pack of zombies on my tail is when i ignored them because i needed to get to my quest objective. This game is fun to play with friends, but if you want a real survival feel, you pretty much have to play it alone. Overall its a gory, violent zombie game that will give you many hours of messy fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epicness This is probably the best zombie game ive ever played. This game is like left 4 dead X 1000000000000000 love it soooooooooooooooooooooo much. mainly because its realistic rather than spawning in front of a table full of uzi's u must fight off of the melee weapons you find laying around, getting a gun takes effort and determination. The only gun i own on the game is a revolver with 2 bullets, its not easy. This game is the best ever i would recommend it to everyone i know.
