Excellent

Fun-Filled Addicting Game

If you enjoy killing zombies then you will automatically like this paticular game. If you're a fan of Dead Rising, Borderlands, Left For Dead, and just RPG games in general, then this is your game. There are so many quests to get done in this game and still have the main quests. It's a active game, no boring in sight. Cool thing about this game is just not all the weapons but the fact that you are able to create weapons using 'mods'. From slashing zombies with a modded 'shock machete' to blazing them on fire with a 'torch mod', this game is ridiculously fun.

However there are some cons. Glitches do appear but they are a work-around. Nothing big really and are ineffectivel. Just reload your last save point or reset the game. Story mode could of been better but I give them a 9 for the first 'Dead Island'. Big expectations for the next one, if there is...

Cons
-The biggest problem that I have with D.I. is saving my progress. For some reason when u get to a checkpoint it said its saving ur game but the next time u load up the game, it sets u back a couple side and main quests that u already have done! And if u don't have enough time to play the game u r going to repeat this progress several times and get frustrated over this problem (i did) There are other issues and glitches here and there but not as big as the issue i just mention that's the only problem that I have with D.I.
Pros
-The game is freaking awesome
-The game-play is extreme well done, had no problem moving around, switching weapons or fighting against countless waves of zombies. (u just got to remember ur surroundings so u wont get cornered and die easily)
-The fighting system is also well done, u can hit that zombie high for the head or low for the family jewels either way is a whole lot of fun.
-There is 100 ways to kill a zombie, shoot them, cut off their heads, ram them over with ur car, burn them, cut off their limbs and even drowned them LoL
-For zombies the A.I. is pretty smart, sometimes when u r facing a group of them, they will try to surround u.
-The characters u get to choose are interesting and well designed. each of them have their own special ability and their own reason why their r on the island
-The environment is extremely beautiful, well designed, every object, house, street has great detail to them to make u feel that u r in the end of days
-U get to create many different weapon with the mods u find around the island or as a reward from a quest u completed
-Upgrading ur weapons and characters is easy and simple
-Co-op is also simple, easy and fun to play with a friend

Its an amazing game, u get the chance to explore a huge island filled with zombies to take on in a first person perspective The only down side that I have with D.I. it just wont save ur game progress the right way but I still recommended this game to many body
