Product Description

The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive. This is Dead Island a paradise to die for. The Island of Banoi: If you've been dreaming about paradise, we know a place where you can make those dreams come true. The Island of Banoi. Just off the coast of Papua New Guinea, located South of the Equator and just north of Australia. Until very recently much of the island was wild and primitive and totally untouched by the modern world. Even though the capital, Moresby, was founded by Australian settlers in 1895, many places deep in the interior still have never been seen by western eyes. Banoi's lush tropical beauty offers many natural wonders: from verdant rain forests to mountain highlands to virginal white sand beaches. Take a diving tour and experience the wonder of coral reefs teaming with life. Hike the mountain highlands or explore Banoi's extensive network of mysterious caves. Along the way you will encounter all manner of rare birds, butterflies, fish, reptiles, and mammals, including the great apes of the Banoi highlands. It's a sportsman's paradise with world-class rock climbing, fishing, hunting, sailing, and kayaking. Or if that sounds too taxing, find yourself a private beach, splash in the waves and soak up the sun. Meet the friendly people of Banoi. They are proud of their rich cultural heritage. The indigenous art is world renowned and unbelievably varied, reflecting the many local tribes with their own myths, legends and language. Come see what Heaven on Earth looks like. Come to beautiful Banoi. The pearl in the necklace of the Oceania Archipelago.

From the Manufacturer

The island of Banoi is a lush, tropical paradise in the South Pacific where its flagship Royal Palms Resort serves as the ultimate getaway for vacationers with money to burn. However, all good things must soon come to an end - and the picturesque resort falls into madness, carnage and chaos after a mysterious and contagious zombie outbreak claims its once peaceful atmosphere. Cut off from the rest of the world, only four individuals who strangely find themselves immune to zombification have the power to protect the remaining survivors from the horrors of the island, to discover what's really going on and find a way to escape before their own fatal ends.

As a fan of zombie games, and a fan of co-operative games, I was pretty excited for the release of Dead Island to play with my friend. Then it actually came out, and all my expectations were shattered...

1. GAMEPLAY: The gameplay is horribly uninspired. You choose one of four characters (blade-centric, throwing-centric, melee-centric and gun-centric), and then proceed to kill zombies and complete missions for experience to level up. Each time you level up, you get a skill point to spend in the character's "unique" skill trees. Each character has 3 trees: Fury, which is basically the character's special move and spending points in this tree helps go towards enhancing the effects of Fury; Combat, which is the character's effectiveness with his or her specific background description (IE, Xian, the blade-character, has combat skills which revolve around landing more Critical Hits with knives and machetes, whereas Logan, the throwing-character, has combat skills which revolve around increasing damage with thrown weapons); and Survival, which is just a random assortment of skills, mostly shared between characters, that allow you to do things like pick locked chests or repair weapons for less money. I would like to point out that the only real "Skill" you have in the game is the Fury move that you can unlock with 1 point; all other so-called "Skills" are basically modifiers to how much damage the character does or how much money he/she has to spend.

Besides this, there are no real RPG-elements to the game. Zombies scale with your level the entire way through, as do weapons, and you'll gain health as you level up. Other than that, there are no attributes you have to manage, or even get to look at for that matter.

good game. great graphics, only thing i dont like is that anyone can get on your game unless you set it to private before you even start the game. I have had my game messed up twice by online gamers jumping in my level. Dont like that at all. once the main mission is done its a game o fetch the rest of the time with side and reoccuring missions that will just run you ragged. also there is an issue with switching weapons you cant just hit a key or button and change to the next weapon, you have to go to the inventory menu and equip it each time you want to change, even thought you have 8 weapon slots. and the firearms arnt that effective as they should be head shots dont kill the zombies it takes multiple hits. Over all i like this game but get it as cheap as you can.

I didn't realize that this would need to be accessed via Steam and I tried to be nit-picky about what games I purchase. I'm deployed out in Afghanistan so the internet out here is complete garbage (just enough for facebook and this reivew). When I got the game and it started updating Steam and installing though it as well I just said "#$%!" Besides the fact that the update took ages, I instantly looked online to see if I could play this without a connection. The answer? Yes. The only thing people need to worry about is logging into Steam but once you set your Steam to offline mode, you can tote this anywhere and I play it as long as Steam is up. Now, this can suck but because you have to have an online connection to access Steam but if you're the type to keep it running in the background like myself, you won't have issues with it.

Dead Island has had an update that fixes a lot of bugs and issues players had problems with and I was happy to see when I installed this game that an update was being downloaded simply because I knew this game had attention from the development team.

SO WHY SHOULD I BUY THIS GAME?
1.) It's zombies and that's awesome.
2.) The game is optimized well and can run on a pretty standard computer (mine's not high-tech)
3.) Xbox 360 controller settings if you prefer to operate that way
4.) Fantastic graphics, gore and FX.
5.) Decent story
6.) Full-open world
7.) Fun combat and world exploration similar to Bioshock
8.) It gets updated often
9.) 4-player co-op
10.) Over 100 hours of gameplay

WHAT COULD STEER ME AWAY?
1.) You have to access Steam to play whether it's online or offline.
2.) The RPG style elements like hit point combat system might steer away action-driven players

I am playing this one as single player on a PC and thoroughly enjoying it. Game loaded fine but did take a while as it is a long game. I already had a steam account so game updated in about 60 seconds.
Lots and Lots of side quests of varying degrees of difficulty plus the main quests. If you enjoy killing Zombies this is the game for you. Shoot them, Hack them, bludgeon them, electrocute them etc. Some cons, as there are in every game, such as the Thug Zombies have a longer reach then you do with a shovel,If you are a shooter guns are few and ammo scarce, Some times the quest tracker stops showing you where you are. At the first of the game do not set your gamma low as they suggest as you cannot see your hand in front of your face. I am looking forwards to many more hours of play and replay with this one!
