during the game ( approx. 2.5 to 3 min.) a notice would show up informing me that my ether-net cable was disconnected. since i was not playing on line this was VERY disconcerting. In my estimation dead island is DEAD!!!!
For me this game was kind of a let down. Kept hearing about how the Uncharted series was awesome, so i tried this one. Have to say honestly, the story is awesome, the graphics are off the charts sick, and the music is fitted perfectly for the story and gaming scenes. Having said that, i didnt finish the game because the gaming control and the enemies you face was insane. Had the difficulty set on easy and still were many times playing you didnt stand a chance moving forward against guys with laser scopes, while others throw grenades making you have to constantly move out of cover only to be shot by snipers while other enemies are in your face and you have to use melee combat while getting shot at by hordes of distant enemies.
Another yet example of a awesome story and good graphics on a game ruined by rush production and poor choices in gaming sequences. Neat game to try but would never spend 59.99$ on it because you spend more time getting ticked off than enjoying the game. Let down for me

This game was weak. Literally every problem or obstacle you encounter has one of 2 solutions, either climbing and jumping very unrealisticly (a 10 foot horizontal backwards wall hang jump)
Or Some kind of ridiculous puzzle. The puzzles didnt really add anything positive to the game, after the first couple puzzles you just want to play the game without being interrupted for 20 minutes in each room looking for the wall hang to jump to or trying to put a staff in a hole in the ground.
The fact that you cant play online without a 60 dollar pass, makes renting this game through gamefly a big waste of time and money.
