Product Details:

The island of Banoi is a lush, tropical paradise in the South Pacific where its flagship Royal Palms Resort serves as the ultimate getaway for vacationers with money to burn. However, all good things must soon come to an end - and the picturesque resort falls into madness, carnage and chaos after a mysterious and contagious zombie outbreak claims its once peaceful atmosphere. Cut off from the rest of the world, only four individuals who strangely find themselves immune to zombification have the power to protect the remaining survivors from the horrors of the island, discover what's really going on and find a way to escape before their own fatal ends.

  • In keeping with an atmosphere of desperation and survival by any means, Dead Island focuses on serious, first-person action gameplay with a close-quarter, immersive melee focus.
  • With an open-world setting on a massive tropical island, Banoi is filled to the brim with things to do and objectives to tackle, allowing a fresh way to advance both the characters and story at the same time and providing for endless replay value.
  • Dead Island's seamless 4-player co-op multiplayer seeks to provide the most immersive multiplayer experience to date. Players can drop in and out of each other's games at any time with no loss of progress as well as the ability to continue on alone or with others.
  • The ability to enhance and develop your character using RPG-like elements including four unique character/classes, an XP-based leveling system and un-lockable skill trees put the power in your hands to create and play a unique protagonist.
  • With thousands of weapons in-game, from simple wooden bats to fire-axes to heavy rifles, Dead Island is a collector's dream. This in combination with Dead Island's weapon customization system will enable the player to craft the ultimate weapon to ensure their survival.
  • Dead Island's damage system gives an unprecedented visual detail of the effects of each attack on enemies, pushing the boundaries of visualized gore.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's good at first To be honest with you, I have tried out this game and the game looked really good, the graphics looked like you were watching a movie, and the gameplay is good as well, and at first, I was like 'The Walking Dead on a tropical island' as I played through this game but I'm sure this game is cakewalk if you play this game multiplayer but if you play this game single player............ May God have mercy on you, that much I will tell you. Playing the game single player is actually very challenging but if the game were easy, then it would get boring very fast but to make the enemies get stronger as you get stronger is just ridicules. I've played many games where whenever you level up, you come across new enemies that are stronger then the last but I found it ridicules that they get stronger as you do. That probably won't bother you much if you had a second player but if you're like me, you took on the whole thing alone and you probably died.......a lot. The characters are very uninteresting and bland. I did not find myself liking a single character at all. I played as a character who was a former cop and I thought it would be good because her main means of attack were guns and a character with a gun would really come in handy but it only happened when the 'rage' bar was full and enemies go down with one shot but when you don't use rage, enemies will take forever to go down. Again, I found the character to be bland and very forgettable. One of the main purpose of a game is to offer character that I might like but they were bland as flour. This is one of those games where your selected character gets tired and no matter what you do, your character will get tired and you have to wait for the stamina bar to fill up but it empties at the worst time when you are surrounded by enemies and if you can't defend yourself, you are dead just like that. Another thing that I will admit about this game is that you will respond if you die but there were times whenever I responded, I'd would right next to the zombie that killed me and I wouldn't have time to react and before I could ANYTHING; I would be dead again and I'd lose money....again. This happened so many times that I lost track and I had actually beat this game in ten days if you believe or not. There were times when I couldn't help but noticed that there were times when animation was actually lacking. How is a character coughing when they are not assuming the coughing position or even moving their mouths? That may not be a big deal to you but I would like some indication of what they characters are actually doing and what's going on. I actually caught that when I was on my way to beating the game when I was in the elevator and the characters were coughing but they were standing like they statues, just making coughing sounds. I didn't care for the story and I thought that the story was actually weak and it wasn't the kind of story that I could take seriously. "The Walking Dead' by Telltale was refreshing and that game had a story that I actually took seriously and I loved the game for its characters and it's story. Even though that I am not a fan of point-and-click games, it was better then this game. If you want to try this game out, that's fine, more power to you. We're all entitled to our opinions and there's no judgment if you try this game out yourself but again, if you go single player.....you will brew up a storm like I did and you will language that you would NOT want to repeat. I just do not think that I'll touch anything from 'Deep Silver' again. It's not the WORST game that I'd ever played but it really wasn't my favorite game by the time January of last year came around, I traded it in and that was that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
