Very Good

The good the bad & the ugly

First off I would like to start out by saying this game is awesome for those into action and gore,I don't want to sugar coat anything so lets get down to it. on game play out of a 10 I give this game an 8, I would've like to give it more because I had alot of fun with it but there are some issues with the graphics and some glitches that hinder that.

sound and music I give a 9 because with my turtle beach headset I was very afraid and the sounds were very life like from the zombies and the music is pretty good also. I did notice however that when the characters spoke there mouths hardly moved but I was able to override that and focus on the game.

replay value I will give a 7 because although you can play solo and beat the game or cooperatively after you beat the game I am sure you will not want to do it all again even though you remain with all your weapons and level ups. the zombies will be stronger in your second go around shall you choose to beat the game again but I did not want to play through again and btw the ending in this game was bad I did not like it. Some may go a second round at it but I would go with a totally different character but that's just me.

overall score for this game I would have to say for me is 8.3 maybe if there was an online versus mode like in left for dead I would've given dead island a 9 if the game play ran smoothly online that is. I hope they make a part 2 but hope they bring in a versus mode for added replay value this game is a definite rental not a buy especially at 65 bucks.

If Left 4 Dead and Fallout had a baby, this would be it.

Overall great zombie killing game, recommended to anyone with friends they play with online and anyone who likes to kill zombies.

When I saw the trailer for dead island at e3 on g4 i was wondering how good it could be, what the gameplay would be like and how they would make it a true zombie survival experience. When the release date was announced for good and I was able to pre order it I immediately did so. The day finally came I picked up my copy installed it and started playing it. I was soon completely amazed by what Techland was able to create the size of the island and level of exploration was amazing as was the level upgrade as well as the ability to mod almost any type ofweapons in a more realistic way than dead rising.

While the game does have many bugs, gltches and technical issues most games have tons on the day of released and most people criticized the game way to harshly because of it, which these issues are easily fixable through the many patches and updates planned for the pc and 36o alike. In the long run the gameplay is addictive and fantasic and will keep your heart racing and on your toes. The worst part part of the game to me is the cheapness of some of the infected , as well as the terrible cutscenes, but these two things do not impact how memorable the game really is once you have played it once.
