4.0 out of 5 stars Great open world RPG... i am having fun, July 7, 2012
This review is from: Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition -Xbox 360 (Video Game)
My friends and I who play together online just got through Ghost Recon Future Soldier and were hoping for a new co-op experience and challenge; we already knew about the game Dead Island but did not really consider it till we saw a GOTY edition. After playing for a couple nights i have to say that this is indeed a fun and challenging game!

This is not a FPS so do not get it confused with L4D2.. in fact this game is actually an Open World RPG set in the back drop of a zombie outbreak at a tropical resort... now as someone who lives in the caribbean, I absolutely loved the concept! True to RPG form you can level up various character attributes and even craft newer weapons as you level up your character of choice. The 4 characters have some various advantages that will suit different play styles (just like most party based RPG's).

It's a lot of fun to jump in a pick up in the game and just drive across the island appreciating the visuals and running over the occasional zombie

This may not come across as much of a review but the game has been reviewed before as the standard edition, i have yet to make use of the extra content so i cannot comment on it as yet. But what i can say is that this is a lot of fun for anyone appreciating good co-op experience (just make sure you have the common sense to understand that you need to level up your character >totally pointing fingers at another reviewer<

I am liking this game a lot.

I'd recommend anyone looking for a good review on this game just check the review for the standard edition and ignore people who find the game too hard http://www.amazon.com/Dead-Island-Xbox-360/product-reviews/B004PAGJOC/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1
