Summary: Its ok but not really mindblowing. kind of clunky moving around grabbing stuff. Graphics are pretty good. The characters are kinda lame and not sure if you really connect with them. Left 4 dead is way better but my guess is you will get some ok play time with this game.
Summary: About a quarter of the way through the game I was very impressed. I thought the graphics were strong, combat was innovative, the ambiance was definitely tensions filled, and the enemies kept things interesting. About half way through I was hoping I was almost done only to find out that there were way more missions than I hoped. Everything is fetch quests and the story is extremely weak.
Summary: Bought this game to use as a fill in game until I purchased something I would be excited about and that is what it is just ok. Got a little bored with it after a few hours - just bought Crysis3 so Dead is going to be dead on my shelf now.
Summary: About what I expected. Melee works well but combat can get stale after awhile. Quest variety is a bit low and you'll soon follow map to point without even knowing what the objective is. Would be angry if I paid full but its only 5 bucks so I consider it value at that price.
Summary: It's an ok game but nothing really makes this a memorable game. Does have it's flaws (mainly with the melee weapons) but nothing too bad. It was obviously designed to be a multiplayer so if you have friends to play it with then I would recommend it but if you're like me and like to solo then you might find yourself getting quickly get bored. This is really a hit or miss game, you'll either like it or you won't so I recommend checking out videos of gameplay before buying.
Summary: The graphics of the game Dead Island are absolutely gorgeous. The gameplay, unfortunately, doesn't live up to its potential. You start out smashing zombie skulls in with oars and broomsticks that you find on the beach, and its pretty impressive. You gain a few levels and find some better weapons, and smash some more zombie skulls in. And some more. And some more.
