This game is a terrible let down. Its super glitchy which is a major issue with the game. You'll hit a zombie with a bat square on the head or chest, but most of the time it wont register and then you'll die. SOO ANNOYING. If it wasnt glitchy itd would be a better game (but still bad). Its just boring and pointless. Don't buy this game.
Extreme fun, single player story line is interesting, you CAN go online and have others helping you out and make it even more fun when you go as a group of 4 to annihilate every zombie around, weapon customization is not to shabby, the aiming system is unique, allowing you to aim at specific parts and use strategy. Definitely not a game for kids, lots of luscious gore. Also lots of leveling up elements, allowing you to spend skill points to make your character truly unique. Guns aren't everywhere, but honestly, do you find guns laying around just anywhere? Its realistic, those who say they hate the game for the lack of guns then sorry that Techland made it realistic.
This game has a great concept and great graphics. But it's somewhat glitchy when killing zombies, and having a bunch of zombies attack when you only have a stick is frustrating. I know they tried to bring the feel of being doomed, but there needs to be more weapons available at all times. Guns are too rare, and I quit playing once I got too frustrated being killed because I didn't have enough weapons.
This game has a Horror/Drama/Suspense feel to it which is the reason i bought this game. Reason 1: The Graphics are AMAZING! Reason 2: We all love Zombies! Reason 3: Why wouldn't you but this game a lot of people already bought this game so play with them on multiplayer on story mode! Reason 4: The weapons are eyeopening because it has many weapons with special effects like Fire, Poison, Electricity, Impact and many more. Just buy it it's AWESOME!
Most of the negative criticism for this game are focused on two things: glitches and poor graphics.
I'll admit the game does have its glitches and the rendering of indoor environments is less than stellar.
However, I haven't been able to put this game down and I'll tell you why. This game is an innovative combination of RPG and FPS (I use this term loosely since there aren't that many guns in this game). This is the only zombie game out there allows you to roam free to survive the zombie apocalypse however you see fit. This game is a gem.
This is NOT your average FPS. In fact, it's NOT a FPS. It is a FP-RPG. I just spend hours playing it. It is a little slow in the beginning, but it definitely picks up. I have only tried the single player campaign so far, but I can't wait to try coop online later this evening! If u like bashing zombies with melee weapons, it's a fun & chill game to play.
STARTED OUT PLAYING THE WALKING DEAD GAME FOR PS3. THEN THEY CAME OUT WITH DEAD ISLAND. I RECEIVED IT AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT LAST YEAR AND ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE GAME. I PERSONALLY THOUGHT DEAD ISLAND HAD A LOT MORE ADVENTURE TO IT THAN THE WALKING DEAD GAME.
Product Description The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive. This is Dead Island a paradise to die for. The Island of Banoi: If you've been dreaming about paradise, we know a place where you can make those dreams come true. The Island of Banoi. Just off the coast of Papua New Guinea, located South of the Equator and just north of Australia. Until very recently much of the island was wild and primitive and totally untouched by the modern world. Even though the capital, Moresby, was founded by Australian settlers in 1895, many places deep in the interior still have never been seen by western eyes. Banoi's lush tropical beauty offers many natural wonders: from verdant rain forests to mountain highlands to virginal white sand beaches. Take a diving tour and experience the wonder of coral reefs teaming with life. Hike the mountain highlands or explore Banoi's extensive network of mysterious caves. Along the way you will encounter all manner of rare birds, butterflies, fish, reptiles, and mammals, including the great apes of the Banoi highlands. It's a sportsman's paradise with world-class rock climbing, fishing, hunting, sailing, and kayaking. Or if that sounds too taxing, find yourself a private beach, splash in the waves and soak up the sun. Meet the friendly people of Banoi. They are proud of their rich cultural heritage. The indigenous art is world renowned and unbelievably varied, reflecting the many local tribes with their own myths, legends and language. Come see what Heaven on Earth looks like. Come to beautiful Banoi. The pearl in the necklace of the Oceania Archipelago.
Synopsis 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, to 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.
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.
With thousands of weapons in-game to collect, 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.
The ability to enhance and develop your character using RPG-like elements including an XP/leveling system and un-lockable skill trees put the power in your hands to create and play a unique protagonist.
Dead Island's damage system gives an unprecedented visual detail of the effects of each attack on enemies pushing the boundaries of visualized gore.
With an open-world setting, 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.
