Features
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.

In keeping with an atmosphere of desperation and survival by any means, Dead Island focuses on serious, first-person action gameplay with a close-quarter, immersive melee focus.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Questing & Open World Game!

Pros: Good Graphics, Questing and Combat.

Cons: Looting is somewhat hard to see. Weapons decay too quickly.

Other Thoughts: Nice immersion and fun to play. Recommended for any horror fan. Have only played for 3 hours and was a good start for me. Starting sequence was helpful for NAV and familiarity of game play.

5 out of 5 eggsFun game. Great co-op.

Pros: ---Co-op is great.
The drop-in/out feature works well.
You can choose if others can join your game or not, and you can choose if the game is at your level or at the host's level.

---Fun missions, plenty to explore. Leveling up is cool. Managing inventory gets easier and fun to have stronger weapons.

Cons: ---The story isn't remarkable. Concentrate on playing, running errands (quests), managing inventory, and leveling up. Don't expect a great story.

---Lots of cursing. I didn't enjoy the lame cussing. The characters had no restraint and they never had anything intelligent to say. Their language was pathetic.

---The characters aren't likeable, just their abilities; like Purna's gun upgrades, Logan's knife fury, Xian's running stamina, and Sam B's blunt weapon force.

Other Thoughts: Now that the game is cheaper, it's an even better bargain.

I highly recommend the game for adult gamers for co-op.

Expect at least 40 hours of game play if you're going for all the achievements.
(I had all achievements in less than 2 weeks, except play 28 days later. XBox 360 Gamertag: "E vee dub")

2 out of 5 eggsHugely disappointing

Pros: Enjoyable graphics, easy controls, and co-op is sort of fun.

Cons: Jeesh... where do I start? Collision detection is horrible (zombies can walk through certain things but a simple beach umbrella brings your truck to a screeching halt).

The side quests are ludicrous (people asking you to retrieve missing necklaces and teddy bears... really?).

Workbenches that you have to "pay" to use to work on your items... c'mon now... just silly.

The weapons are ridiculously flimsy (brass knuckles and lead pipes breaking after a couple of uses), and the counter for that is a joke... just kick all the time.

If you are a fan of "shoot-em-up" zombie horror, don't waste your time... you can literally play for days without finding a gun... can't figure out why they even bothered to create the different character classes... the "gun girl" is useless, the guy with the lowest stamina is the former professional athlete, etc... this game is just a poorly thought out waste of time.

Other Thoughts: My 10-year old son put it best; "picture Far Cry without guns, a bad storyline, and sucking badly".

Overall, the game gets really repetitive, really fast. "Exploring" the island early on is pretty much a waste of time as certain areas are obviously intended for use later in the game so when you go to them early on, they are simply empty and all the buildings are locked up.

No matter where you leave your truck and what condition it is in, it will always reappear in pristine condition at your home base... absurd.

My kids and I really had high hopes for this game but it turned out to really be a t*rd. If you are a fan of the survival horror genre, fine, rent it for a day. Otherwise, the Left for Dead franchise and the original Far Cry are much better options for wasting a Saturday.

4 out of 5 eggsR3's second chance review

Pros: Co-op rocks ! ! !

Cons: The first 1~2hrs of gameplay.
Single player not nearly as fun as Co-Op.
Headache inducing frame rate at times.

Other Thoughts: Having written Dead Island off shortly after purchasing it, I gave it a second go with friends in co-op mode. I can honestly say that once this game gets past the first 1~2hrs of boredom it really opens up into a frenzied mess of fun and mayhem! Puzzles make sense, supply runs do to (mostly). Sure the pathing for missions is linear, but the game itself is huge and traveling from A to B to C never seems to get dull.

Dead Island gets a thumbs up on my second attempt.

2 out of 5 eggsUnfinished

Pros: Ok graphics
Marginal controls
Drop In/Out Co-Op is this game's only saving grace.

Cons: Definitely rough and unfinished. At best this is a $20.oo bargain bin game as it plays much like an early Playstation One FPS. Movement is iffy and sluggish, animation is inconsistent and collision detection is unforgiving when driving vehicles and the fact that a picnic basket might as well be a brick wall is just lazy programming.

Other Thoughts: It is easy to see where this game was headed, but it easy to see that this game is realistically 3~4 months away from being an actual release worthy project. It is going to take a lot of patching to bring this title up acceptable levels.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Zombie Game!

Pros: Great Graphics, Zombies are scary, Not your atypical Run and gun kinda game! You Need to think to survive not just blast everything in sight.

Cons: I wish the Menu interface was a little better.

Other Thoughts: Dont listen to other reviews about it being just like borderlands...Its not. Much more depth to it. I dont know how anyone could beat this in "2 days" unless they had absolutely no life. If your a fan of Zombies Get this game. If your a call of duty / battlefield fan boy, Stay away Its nothing like call of duty / battlefied / every other FPS out there. You rely on melee weapons not guns. although you do get some guns in the game. This is a survival game not a kill everything in sight game.

5 out of 5 eggsDead Island for the Xbox 360

Pros: Fantastic Zombie RPG, with a great detailed skill tree and 4 different characters to choose from. This game really brings all of the RPG elements combined with Zombies to make one "Terror-ific" game. The story is a well built story and keeps you on your toes the entire game. There are also a vast amount of side missions, collectibles, and different weapons mods that will make you crawling over this game for hours. What also makes this game great is that when you beat it you unlock a NEW GAME +, which allows you to start over again but this time you already have all of the weapons you have collected and all of the weapons mods. Which I find to be fantastic. The best thing about this game is the environments look great, the zombies look great, and you will often find yourself veering away from the story missons and go exploring through the great island of Dead Island.

Cons: There are a few glitches, but most have been fixed by the massive patch that came out the same day it was released. There were a few escort missions that were tough, but seem to be fixed now with the patch.

Other Thoughts: Overall great game, great adventure, and lots of fun to play.

2 out of 5 eggsDead Island...Boarderlands with zombies

Pros: Great game to rent, not to buy.

Cons: I beat the game within 2 days. This is a rip off of Boarderlands. I had hoped for better game play or something but you pretty much kill zombies and do some quests. When you play thru once, you get to do the entire thing over. It's hard to see them adding new content after you get off the island unless the entire outside world is like this.

Other Thoughts: Rent this game for a few days vs buying. Unless you were a huge fan of Boarderlands, just watch the walkthru's on youtube and you got the jest of the game. Don't waste $60 on a game when MW3 and Halo are coming out in a couple months.
