I love the genre, but I felt the game was a bit repetitive. The story was good as was the opening for the game, but after a hour of so of gameplay I put the game back in the sleeve and sipped it back. The game runs 720p for those like myself that feel the reason we bought HD systems was to rock 1080p gaming, and no two player story mode unless you play online.

If you like borderlands and if you like zombies, you might find this very enjoyable. It kinda has the same concept except instead of just guns, you can come up on machetes, samurai swords, bats, hammers, pretty much anything that you think could be used as a weapon.
Has the same kind of looting concept to it and of course you can upgrade you items to make a dope flaming baseball bats and the such.
I really enjoyed the game, but to be honest I did lose interest towards the end. I recently picked it up again to finally finish it before the 2nd one comes out (which I am going to get).
The multiplayer is fun, and helpful, except it can get a little annoying when the random guy your playing with is doing his own thing and not helping you finish your quests.
The story is pretty much what you'd expect from a title named "Dead Island". Your on a island with a very high class resort and then one day everything goes to fudge. The adventure starts off on the resort, but the island is so much bigger than just the resort and you of course get to explore pretty much all different areas. I won't give away too much, but they're all uniquely different to the horror experience.
All in all this game is pretty freaky to play by yourself. Seriously when hear the infected scream and don't see them, it'll make you mess up your pants when they start attacking you from behind, which in my opinion is fun. I don't play too many survival horror games, but this sure is way more fun than resident evil 6. IMO.
I think the reason most people dislike this game is because of glitches. I purchased and played this game on the older model PS3 and I've never had a glitch or any frustrating technical issues.
I played as Xian and then again as Sam B. They are by far the best to play as, more fun bashing and slicing zombies. I liked the skill-tree and the weapons/quest system is very similar to Borderlands.
Even looking for the little colored skulls and finding arrows why randomly trying to get to another location is AWESOME. I really liked all the quests, finding people to give you quests, etc, etc.
I don't know why, but I really enjoyed this game. Maybe because of the intense violence that's covered across a beautiful island, a shanty town, a jungle village and an island prison. It's very well fleshed out.
