Dead Island Game of the Year Edition
the game is really good but gets boring after you pass it like twice. really fun with friends online.
Awesome, but could be better
I read some reviews, and I noticed how people were getting mad that there are no guns in the beginning. It's not meant to be a Left 4 Dead game. I like how you can only find guns in the police station or finding an armory because it adds a sense of realism in the game. The game is awesome, but it could be better. The graphics and sound effects are stunning, and if you have a turtle beach headset you'll be hooked on how real the zombies sound. The voice acting is not great, but it gets the job done. The characters never show any facial emotion since they have that blank stare all the time, The gameplay is a lot fun with all the abilities you can unlock, and each character has their own unique gameplay style. Weapons break part, so you'll have to repair or upgrade which could make a hardcore gamer happy. You can also make your very own unique weapons like a electric machete! I recommend this game to everyone who likes a survival zombie game where you have to use every day weapons; however, there are times when you'll have to kick over and over and over again.
An amazing game at an amazing price!
If I could compare this to other games, I would say Left 4 Dead 2 because of the 4-player co-op, Fallout 3 since they're both open-world RPG's, and Condemned for having a heavy focus on melee combat. Now, on to the pros and cons of the game- PROS- The game has excellent level design, lots of engaging side quests, an AWESOME melee system, customizable weapons, fun (but frustrating to get started) co-op, and a cool, open-world environment. CONS- LOTS of texture pop-in (especially after just started the game after putting the disc in), the combat system was kind of broken, because your characters motions can be sort of clunky, it had stupid parts when you get into firefights with bandits, and the characters' voice acting and lip movement is total garbage. Nevertheless, this is still an awesome game that you should grab come buddies with and start hacking away!
Hardcore gamers only
This game was meant specifically for hardcore gamers only. Not for those types that love Call of Duty and hate challenges. Hate to do all these extra things to make games more challenging. I'm not trying to bring down another game but Call of Duty games are too repetitive and get boring. I'd say they are for casual gamers. But this game, having to repair your weapons, heal yourself use arsenal after arsenal at your disposal. Being chased by packs of zombies and having to survive and protect others. This is the kind of game that makes a game. The horror faction of the game stands out to as far as a zombie epidemic would. When you start to figure out where zombies would come out from and whether the ones on the floor are alive or dead just gives you more of a feel for the game. Makes you feel more alive and in tuned to the game. If you don't like have to smash, bash and kick your way out of situations and having to repair not only your weapons but heal yourself too then this game isn't for you. If you like Skyrim, Fallout, any rpg and zombie based games then I highly recommend this for you.
the gameplay is awesome the graphics are awesome everything is awesome that is why I brought dead island because it has a good story line.
Finally, an AWESOME zombie game
This is a awesome zombie game. The game play is good, the graphics are good (because its on the ps3 ;) ) I would get this game. I played it 2 days in a row :D
i will admit that the game can get boring at some times but once you get into the game you feel alive.
Beware ... (read)
I bought the Game of The Year edition to kill time until BL2 comes out. MY sole reason to get the game was to do online Co-op with a buddy that already had the game. I had spent more time trying to connect with him and vice versa that a blood vessel almost burst in my head. We come to find out that the developers of the game failed to fix or patch the KNOWN issue with joining or inviting a person on your Friends List for a Private Co-op. THERE seems to be no solution. I tip my hat to Game Stop for taking taking this game back, with less than 3 hours on it (but 4 hours additional trying to join), and crediting me towards my BL2 pre-order. JUST be aware of this situation if you are looking at this game!
im exicited for this the game is awesome but now you get all of the addons too!!!! sweet ithink this goty edition is a great deal with an awesome price!!!
I want my copy back!
When I first brought this game I was so upset...it wasn't what I thought it was going to be like from watching all the pre-game shot videos. As soon as I completed this game it was kick to trade-in, but now I wish I had it back. The game had some serious issues going on with it when I had it, but the overall game and storyline wasn't bad. I will be going to GameStop getting a used version of this game again...that means I would be paying over $78 for this game. If you do get it and you have mix feelings about the game DO NOT trade it in keep it...cause you'll want to play it later.
