It had its ups and downs, but there are too many bugs and problems that make the game full of rage at times. it feels like it wants to be a brand new dead island but its not. honestly it should be a dlc but the map is too big to be that, honestly not worth buying i would rent if you played the first one.

The problems are the same as the original, but then, the original (in its seriousness) was a joking, fun game. The combat is a bit tedious, sure, and the missions, a bit annoying/far-fetched, but this is not meant to be Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead, or any serious zombie game. It's more like an extended Call of Duty zombies, with a different, expanded combat system/focus. The point of DI is the same as CoD zombies: to have fun, mostly with friends. Multiplayer isn't a separate game or any easier, because the fun of DI is just zombie-bashing. It's somewhat similar (in my own mind at least) to the movie Zombieland, with a loose story and just a fun destructive feel. Its a game to laugh and make fun of while enjoying it with friends, so it isn't self-aware like the gamespot review points out, because the game making fun of itself would take our fun out as players. So yes, a 3 or so in CoD or Halo terms, with a poor story and tedious details, but a 8 or 9 if rated by its purpose of zombie-bashing and a community game.
A game for that zombie-bashing mood we all get on occasion, not one meant to be enjoyed for its story, or played straight through in one sitting.
