Good

Repetitive

Don't get me wrong, this game had a nice change from the hack n slash zombie survivals preceding it. Guided around the idea of true survival, Dead Island has you using everything you can find in your environment to survive, barter, and trade. I would have enjoyed a game that did not rely on a hit point meter and durability based weapons (oh, and the fact that nomatter how many you kill, every quest and checkpoint bring em all right back). I'd say the replay value is low since the only thing to look forward to is zombie that scale level with you and increasingly more expensive items to find and buy (and repair). A big plus for this game is the cooperative gameplay, up to 3 additional players that cna import their leveled characters in with your game, regardless of the point in the story. Lots of laughs, friendly fire, and Grand Theft Auto type mayhem. Don't play alone in the dark with good surround sound, the zombies ALWAYS sound like they are right next to you.

Very Good

Decent Game

The game was great at the begining, but then it just started getting boring doing the same stuff time after time. The story line is great but it just gets boring after awhile. The gameplay was meant to be CO-OP but i have live so it made the experience better. Like i said the game was meant to be CO-OP , but overall i would say its the best zombie action game i played to date so hopefully the maker of this game continues to make action zombie thrillers. But over great game i rate a 7/10

This is by far one of the best Zombie Terrorizing games I have played in well I'll be straight forward.. A Very Long Time. Definitely one of the best zombie games out right now, It took me a little while to get used to the gameplay and controls but once you learn the basics and get past a few easy quests you will want to play for hours. One good thing about this game is that you don't even need friends to play with you to have a good time on this free roam Island. It's got ridiculous graphics, and the gore in this game is so dirty I absolutely love it. If you are a Hardcore Gamer like me then you should definitely try this game, you won't be disappointed. I usually try to find some things about a game that could be changed but I haven't found any yet, but this game is pretty long too there is tons to do in this game, Literally. So if you love bashing in Zombie Heads in your free time like I do.. stop reading this review and go play this game.. Right now!
