I really expected a lot out of this game and I got what I wanted. First of all I love the bios of the 4 heroes. I play as Logan mostly because he looks like a stud. I enjoy the vehicles which allow a quick drive to your next mission. I also like the fact that there are varied zombies of different difficulties. I all in one just love the game. It's what I look forward to all day at work. I really don't want to sen it back but moneys tight right now so that is a reason I'm using gamefly in the first place.

Disappointing Island

I'm a huge zombie fan..so when I saw the trailer to dead island It was hard for me not to bust a nut in my pants. When first playing this game.. It was pretty dope, couldn't get passed getting krappy weapon after krappy weapon tho..and when you finally get guns.. They do so little damage it's not even funny. The health system is a joke..so having to shoot a zombie 20 times IN THE HEAD just for another lame zombie to come up outa no where and smack you a few times and just die. The story is sooo whack too. Like wtfff. Online is more fun however...still not enough to make me say it's a good game. I hate to say it's a bad game..but I can't wait to send it back. This game is undeserving of it's kick asss trailer

It's a game that you will get suckered into and enjoy. The side quests are lame, but the game play is what makes this game tick. Running over, kicking, shooting, and enjoying many a kill, make this a good romp. The graphics are pretty good, but the variety of areas you come across doesn't make for that much change. It's the same thing everywhere you go. Find the infected and kill them. They respawn and it's the same thing. The variety of the undead doesn't really change. They level up with you, so it keeps you on your toes. Which makes things more challenging and sometimes frustrating. The infected they have are fun though. Creating and using new weapons is fun. Game play mechanics are pretty good, but can get glitchy at times. It's an all around fun play.
