BEST GAME EVER!!
Love this game and its my favorite game of all time. if you want a zombie RPG this is your game i also love the quests.
I PROMISE TO HELP THE UNDECIDED DECIDE-
-1st off this game is-NOT supposed to be epic.. But it is and that's why I gave a 10.. I've only given 3 other 10 scores in my life=Oblivion,,Knights of the old Republic,,Fallout Vegas,,those games & Dead Island have that 1 thing in common that trumps all categories in a game rating =FUN FACTOR, if the game is fun = happiness???if we're happy we continue playing= continued playing = attachment?? I played Dead Island for 7-8 months straight. And ive got 60+ 360 games & 40+ PS3 games on my shelf and games like arkham City,Borderlands2&Skyrim we're put on hold cause I could-NOT put DI down.. Now about the game itself...---All story driven action RPG's have leveling up and skill points you pick & choose where they go and you're character gets a new attack or better whatever,,just like all the great games Dead island has Anton of options of skills to buy and there's 3 different trees. Identical to borderlands. - and in the end I think you can get all but maybe 120 of the skills..and each of the 4 characters have their OWN skills.. The cop has firearm skills, the tank dude has slow powerful and so on..this is what plays a major part in this game being EPIC..AND all gamers know that side quest are not just fun but they are designed to teach us the maps layout, and DI Has one of the LARGEST MAPS OUT THERE. Justbfrom a mileage p. o. v. It's up there with oblivion/Skyrim,Fallout,Just Cause-2,Farcry3, grand theft auto comes to mind,, but that's also from a automobile perspective.. Another MAJOR perk of side quest are for REWARDS!! Maybe Legendary weapon,or a skill upgrade. Like a permanent boost to you're blah blah. Or "I'm a personal trainer, let me teach you a technique that will let you blah blah. This only happens 4-6 times and usually it's money or weapons. But it makes it fun...... Now onto L O O T~~weapons.. In DI there's two kinds of trunk/chest= locked and unlocked. The locked ones are tier 1,2,3, and each requires you to spend a skill point in each to be able to open it, wellllll worth it!! Because chest farming is addictive and 75% of my time with his game I would play and just go through my routine route farming chest??cause the tier 1-3 chest are guaranteed special weapon,,the common chest only have like a 10-15% chance of epic weapon/loot.. There's still a 90% chance you won't want/like/need or care about the weapon ya do get, but it adds FUNFACTOR.. They needed and killed this in DI riptide and that's why riptide lacks a cult following like DI..<fact! ---you will get good at killing zombies, these zombies aren't the Romero ones with no ankles,,these Zeus RUN, yeah there's walkers, oh yeah, every zombies leg or legs can be shot off, and arm or arms too. It's so funny seeing a zed with no arms hopping on 1 leg trying to bite you.. But it's also strategy to take out the limbs as a defense cause head shots aren't always practical.. This game isNOT overly gory. It's graphic and I did-NOT play it in front of my 5 year old daughter. Ever, lol,,and the wife thought it was gross,,but to me it was just like any other game where you shoot a arm or head off and there's blood..my point was there's NO excessive.--- don't think DEAD RISING,,I couldn't play deadRising after dead island because deadRising was sooooo sloooow motion. Dead island is identical in speed to fallout,farcry and all those FPS open world games.... Btw 2.0--this island is BEAUTIFUL!! A tropical paradise with gross carnage, but the Zeus are still in tropical paradise swimsuits and cleavage and cameras around their necks etc,,and there's still iSight of the party still going on cause the virus breakout happened so fast.... Ok negatives-The voice acting on the 4 playable characters is laughable,,THANK GOD the humans still living in game are decent/non noticeable... Another negative is storage of weapons. You don't get a footlocker until ACT-2 and act 1 is loong and for a game all about loot that blows.. The arena DLC offers a storage chest and it's available on the game of the year version,, but that's $8 more right now(February2014) oh it's $5 I think.. I paid 10 a week after I was ADDICTED and was happy to do so because I was sucked in.. But I could see the cheap complainers have beef with this.. I heard they were gonna include this but didn't finish it in time.. If that's true then WHY charge us..ugh greed!! I hope my review helps you take a leap of faith and allow yourself to enjoy this game..this same company is the company behind the upcoming DYING LIGHT. Only the nitpickers dislike this game.. Check out the DeadIsland forums and ghost read without registering(I didn't ) but see the cult following this game had.. I had no idea when I bought it on Black Friday @ target...skyrim,fallout were supposed to deliver addicting quality entertainment for 4-6 months.. Dead island had a billyBean like mediocre budget and competed with the Yankees and mets/redox. So this is why I support this game. It impressed me.. And if 1 single person plays it because of me then I did my good deed.. You message me on xbox and say thanks :). Same name = sippio.
A very good zombie RPG
I love RPGs, but when you throw in zombies that just makes it all the more better. Dead Island gives you the chance to hack, slash, smash, bash, shoot, and explode your way throw hordes of zombie in a beautiful island scenery. Yes, trapped on a resort island you must fight your way to uncover the truth behind the zombie outbreak. You can choose to go at it alone or play with up to 3 other people. You are given 4 unique characters to choose from, each with their own special ability and skills. Dead Island also includes a very entertaining story line that will keep you griped throughout the zombie madness. This game can be enjoyed by any type of gamer. I'd definitely recommend this game to any one. Now get to it and start decapitating some zombies!
Worst Zombie Game Yet.
Zombie RPG on a beautiful tropical resort island, sounds good right? That's what Deep Silver thought too. This game is TERRIBLE!!! The character runs out of stamina to quickly and weapons break after 10 hits. DON'T GET THIS GAME!!!
very good zombie game
Dead Island has a great story. The graphics and everything is good in the game. It is fun to play with other people online. Overall its a pretty good game and you should buy it.
A bloody fun zombie game
Now this game has no story, and I usually praise games with stories, but the gameplay and multiplayer make it a fun game. Now at first you may say this game has nothing to do. It has tons to do, but it's mostly all the same, and sadly, it's not worth roaming around mostly. Now I roam around particular maps, like I hate the City of Moresby, but I love the swamp and collecting loot at the island hotel which you can also enter. It's packed with customization, and I loved it no matter how unrealistic or dumb some of them are. I also love the bloodbath arena, letting you get tons of XP. So what can I say? It's bloody fun with a punch, and multiplayer is also addicting too. Sadly, it can be repetitive and it doesn't have a story. But once again that is minor, because it's not supposed to have a story, the side quest stories make up for it anyways. The graphics are beautiful, but down to an 8 because of some glitches and it's always day (which I don't like but yet somewhat like). Overall an 8.5 out of 10, but I gave it a 9 for some credit.
I don't multi-play or play on line with others.
Having been one of the most redundant games I have ever played I was blown away by the graphics and smoothness of the game.
To say the graphics were amazing would be a major understatement. Even the character mentions something about the view at some point.
Having a myriad of characters to choose from is nice but seems it may have been a bit of a burden later in the game regarding weapon purchases. I was using the "blunt weapon expert" and during deals with trader characters I was finding much more bladed weapons than anything else.
I did finish this game which is saying something and the main reason was the graphics.
There are really only 2 or 3 really cool ways to destroy enemies but the gore and consistency is very impressive.
I only finished the game with one character and have absolutely no desire to play it again.
It seems this game would likely be best for on line co-op which is something I don't engage in.
Dead Island is Fun
This game is good and I totally recommend it to a lot of people. If you do not like gory games maybe this isn't the type of game for you. Because this is a very graphic game and some of the scenes can become very gory. It has a exceptional storyline, and it does pass the time. I like it and it is worth checking out.
This game is amazing, I'm not going to make a paragraph review, but any how, the game is fun, great, and it is a strategy game, you cant just walk through the game like that, their are some puzzles and such... I recommend it for anyone who doesn't get bord of games easy... Have fun and I hope you like it.
alright so this game give you hours and hours of gameplay you can do whatever you want whenever you want, you can perzonalise weapons and dlc's are too cheap GET IT
