This game was simply wonderful and at times terrifying. the graphics are on the better end and the animations are even better then that. the gameplay is hard to get tired of and i doubt i will anytime soon. the only problem with this game on the ps3 is the online save glitch that kicks in about half way through the game. the trick is to put the game on single player and stay off of the playstation network. once that new patch is made hopefully it will be solved. HAPPY ZOMBIE HUNTING YA GORE CHASING GAMERS

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

This game has quite a bit of potential to be a great game but has some definite issues that make it nearly unplayable at times. The biggest problem is that the zombies are way too overpowered and you and your allies or questions mates that lead you are too underpowered. The best example of this is in the much later quest 'pure blood' where you and the shaman ope have to travel to his sacred burial grounds where you need to get an item are at. On the way there you have to kill a highly overpowered group of about 6 walkers, a thug, and a butcher. I'm currently on my 127th retry (I counted specifically for this reason) and still cannot get past all of them. Mainly because if you kill any one of them they come back as opposed to staying dead on the next try if you or the shaman dies. This has made the game extremely frustrating as well as many other times where there are numerous occasions where I die or the quest is failed. Hopefully this is either remedied or at east taken note of. Buyers beware
