I'm playing this game with a friend and we're enjoying it.
If you already played borderlands you'll enjoy this game, but don't play it alone or it can bore you very fast (the game is a bit repetitive and with a friend you can bypass this).

Dead Island is a good game, with an actual storyline. While there are inevitable comparisons to other cooperative survival horror games such as Left 4 Dead, Dead Island rises above the similarities to deliver a solid and unique gaming experience.

Pros:

- Good graphics.
- Responsive controls.
- Entertaining voice acting.
- Visceral combat. The hard hits look and feel like hard hits, in other words.
- Cooperative, and a lot more fun with a friend.

Cons:

- Combat can get stale, coupled with the following...
- Weapons degrade and break at a very fast pace. While this seems to be a way to make people switch things up and keep the combat fresh, it gets frustrating having to look everywhere and at everything as a potential weapon.
- Some of the missions get repetitive. This is largely solved when you play cooperatively though, as other players add a new dynamic to the experience.

So this game is region locked to only those in the US. I bought it anyway with an address that I made through 'Borderlinx' I tried activating the game from Europe (Where I live) on Steam. They told me it was not available for purchase in my country. Which I kind of suspected would happen.

So I googled "US VPN Steam" got one working in about 5 minutes. (FlyVPN with the trial account on their page)
Then I logged in, swapped my location to the US through the VPN and activated this game.

I spit in the face of companies and organisations who region lock and DRM games. I paid the money for this, fair and square I own it and I don't care where I live. I should have the right to play it.

The game unlocked as 'Dead Island Goty NA'
I logged out. Exited Steam. Turned off the VPN.
Logged back into Steam and downloaded the game.

Hopefully they won't ban me.. ( I DID pay for the game.. ) would they rather me pirate it?
This is the only game I have bought from Steam. I also have Metro 2033 which was a free giveaway through Facebook. Plus a mate Gifted me Torchlight 2 which I haven't touched.

Regardless I don't wish to be banned but I will take the chance.

Good luck and please reply if it worked for you.

P.S. Buying this grants you a 5 discount towards Dead Island 'Riptide' from Amazon which isn't out yet.

Super story, lovely graphics, choice of caracters, personalisation through your experience point own development.
So many quests, side quests, items weapons, weapons mod to customize them and making zombie kills awesome!
Probably one of the best game ever since, and the coop mod is absolutely magnificent.
Well a must have and a GOTY DL at $6 (02.21.13). WHAT A DEAL.

This is one of my favorite first-person shooters and I highly recommend it. It is incredibly immersive with every bit of visual detail you would want and more! You can explore at will or go on many adventures. I have not had any bugs or issues (Windows 8), like I have with other games I've recently downloaded.

I like this game very much, though there are some flaws I hope they avoided in the sequel.
I'll tell you about the negatives first, and then the positives.

Cons:
*The grammar used in the titles of some of the challenges is terrible. It's so bad that I wonder if they were written by someone who speaks a language other than English and didn't have it proofed by a fluent speaker. "My collectibles, let me show you them!" and "Someone set up us the bomb." Uh, did I miss a joke from a movie or something? I don't even know what the second title means.
*The analog controls for swinging the melee weapons is too slow, and you wind up getting your bum kicked if you aren't standing on a car or something.
*There are four types of special upgrades for your weapons: *SPOILER* You can make barbed (cutting) upgrades, fire upgrades, electricity upgrades, and toxic upgrades. You go through all sorts of trials and quests to get these upgrades that barely enhance the weapon's damage and critical chance at all. Then you get another one that does the same thing the last electric upgrade did, only it's a tiny improvement. It gets monotonous after a bit.
*You can't boost the upgrade to your weapons once they've been modified. You have to find a new one of the same type and use the next mod. Looting good weapons is a royal cramp.
*It takes way, WAY too long to reach the top tier of the challenges, but that's just my opinion. I'm not adverse to a good workout and lots of labor, but come on... $10,000,000 when you usually loot one or two hundred from each body? And that's after you have gotten the first three levels of cash loot.
*You have to play online if you are using a PC. I don't know about the consoles.
