Fun game but not for everyone

I am a total Zombie fan of anything that has to do with Zombies. So Dead Island to me is a must have, but thats not what this review is about. The game kind of reminds me of Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising put together. The graphics aren't all that great and choppy at times. The audio is descent enough. What really stands out is how the game adapts and changes to everything you do, which makes the game so much fun, differnt types of Zombies with differnt lvls of strength and attack make this game fun to play for hours on end, but the stoyline is entertaining and 30hrs of gameplay make this game awsome to play. So try it out, but like I said may not be everyones cup of tea.

Ive been waiting 2 weeks for this game to come in the mail. Let me tell you how angry i get everytime i get the mail and i dont say a giant GF... but i did play it at my friends and if you like rpg beat the ISH out of zombie games, this is a game for you. P.S. can't wait for Dead Rising to come out.

Very Good

Great game, but the auto save is a MAJOR PROBLEM!

game is really good, this game at first seems to be good for 4 player co-op with your friends online right? well WRONG, i HIGHLY suggest this game is to be play by yourself, co-op pretty bad, you and you co-op buddy needs to be at the exact same mission/side quest and its too much of a hassle.

Game is really good single player though
Only problem is the auto save!!!
the auto save killed my experience, Dead Island using an auto save system that for some reason is BROKEN! it says it saves on the screen and then when i quit and return to play again it will have a way older save, i mean an older save from 3 hours before

EXAMPLE, lets say you put 13 hours of gameplay, when you load its an older save from like 10 hours

its a really good game but unless you want to recover your lost hours over and over again it is not worth it
