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

As a Resident Evil head. I tend to enjoy most Zombie games. This game has a feel part FALLOUT. Part DEAD RISING, part House of dead.

BEST PART OF GAME: Killing Zombies, nothing is greater in game play than killing Zombies. Germany forces from WW II run a close second. There's a huge environment to wonder around in.

Worst part of this game. 1st person, killing Zombie's isn't fun in 1st person. Zombies attacking you from every direction. And you can't see them until they hit you.

1) Map is horrible. Beyond horrible hard to read,
2) Weapons break to easy,
3) You pay for everything, even stuff you take off dead bodies like food and ammo,
4)If you die in one area, you spawn in another. Most time in the middle of near Zombie horde.
5) Driving is bad, no fun in running over Zombie. First person view is horrible.
6) Mission don't show up on GPS, finding the Jungle is insane if you have
no idea where it's at.

In the end it's a okay game to mess around with. But compared to Dead Rising and the king of the hill Resident Hill. Not even in their classes.
