This review is from: Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition -Xbox 360 (Video Game)
First off.. This game has many technical flaws. A pinch of my quests were bugged,causing me to start over checkpoint to continue -______-.. and the graphics are very mediocre. The game has difficulty loading explosions and several enemies running everywhere, flames, water textures.. And throughout it gets very very annoying and ruins the experience. The story is pretty below average, and the characters arent likeable whatsoever(Fortunately some questions about the story are answered in the Ryder white DLC and it brings things together better than it did game alone). The skill trees fall flat in my opinion.. Singleplayer makes you feel uncomfortable considering how hard enemies are when you start off..This game was meant for Co-oP. I think they could have done so much more with the intro and how the apocolypse was introduced. And the side quests feel completely pointless considering everyones gonna die anyway. like wtf.. No choice making, you dont feel like you made an impact in the story what-soever, and half the quests you do dont build up to anything. Once you pick up guns, thats all you wanna use considering hordes get more difficult. The good sides of this game are that the island is beautiful, the gameplay can get really intense at some times,the sounds of the undead are really well done, and creating custom melee weapons is pretty sick, driving is arcade like-fluid and fun. I give this game a 7.5-8/10. Because it is playable, but the technical glitches are annoying, and the story and characters are boring.. and if youre not playing co-op.. gets tough. This game deserves atleast a rent.
