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.
suckish graphics no good story line game =fail
the game starts off bad. the graphics arent great the controlls are HORRIBLE! the story line starts off okay but then it ends up getting stupid and boring. and really repetitive and there are parts of the game that are ridiculously hard like so hard theres no way to survive the games horrible i would not recommend it to a friend. me being the hard core gamer i am asked some of my friends how they liked it. they didnt. this game is only good for people who have just started gaming
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.
good zombie slaying game
the first 2-3 hours of this game is complete garbage.....but it gets better the only problem i had with this game is the horrible rendering and the ocasially lag but overall this game is pretty fun. but this game isnt for everyone....for example, my mom would hate this game....she hates my whole collection of games.....
I played this games a few time on the xbox 360.It has a pretty godd story line.You start out in the hotel then The lifegaurd finds you and so on and so on.I am hoppenging to get this game for the PC.
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.
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.
This game is not worth it until they fix it.
Just as every otther zombie shooting enthusiast, I preordered this game on PC. I ordered mine at Gamestop because I always like a hard copy backup disc. The first night that I got it, it was so glitchy that it made playing impossible for the first 24 hours. Later a patch came out...but it didn't fix everything. You can get to the very end of the game and still lose all of your progress. It's happend twice to me so far where I was at a high level and far in the story where upon loading my saved game...it crashes to the desktop. I have several friends with similar issues. This is the best WORST game of the year. Don't waste your money until they completely fix it.
i find no problems with this game >.>
idk what people are complaining about, i havnt had a problem yet, the only thing that annoys me is the automatic equip of alcohol...especially during a fight, sudden drunkeness is real annoying, and it says its a medical item...it doesnt do anything but help you die in a fight...
If you want to be disappointed get this game
So I got my character to level 49 and suprise, suprise, the game fails me utterly. I can't get into my game anymore because this game is so glitchy. When it starts the loading screen it has an error and forces the game to close. This is what you will come to expect from this game. Lots and lots of glitches. When they released this game I was already about 5 hours into playing and come to find out once I exited the game it deleted my save file and started me over from the beginning. This game is fun but when you are forced to start over so many times it completely ruins the game. The graphics are okay at best. The achievements are so easy to obtain that a 5 year old could get them within a few hours, but if you are looking for a game that ruins your experience entirely then you have found your game. I for one will never buy a game from this publisher since they obviously don't care about the player once they buy the game since they have not done anything to help patch these glitches. One of the cinematics is so glitched I can't even see what is going on in the background. All i know is some of the characters are dropping some box but the background is all different colors and I know its not my video card as I have dual ATI Radeon 5800's running on this computer. If they really wanted this game to not be the piece of junk it is, they would have put some time correcting errors instead of rushing it into production. All in all I will rate this game a 5 just for the ability to kill zombies, but if you really want a zombie killing game look up Left for Dead 1 or 2. They are much more well done and a heck of a lot more visually stimulating than this piece of junk.
