About this product
- Product InformationA tropical island resort becomes a place of nightmares after a mysterious epidemic turns the majority of inhabitants into bloodthirsty zombies. As one of four playable characters, your goal is to complete missions necessary for your survival, which means battling throngs of the undead with a variety of customizable weapons and finding a way off the fictitious island of Banoi.
Dead Island features an open-world environment in a campaign that supports up to four players for drop-in, drop-out cooperative action. The two male and two female characters have different strengths and weaknesses, which can be offset to a degree by leveling up. Experience points earned in combat can be used to improve a character's attributes and fighting skills.
When firearms and ammo are in limited supply, you'll be able to engage enemies in hand-to-hand combat with axes, machetes, knives, clubs, and similar edged or bludgeoning weapons that will degrade over time. Explore the island's urban areas, forests, mountain highlands, caves, beaches, and other locales from a first-person perspective, or utilize an over-the-shoulder view for melee combat.

Almost everything you want in zombie apocalypse game!
I love this game. I have played many 'zombie killing games' and this has almost everything I like. It is 1st person, which I really don't like, because it personally makes me nauseated. But this game is so much fun, I try to fight thru it. You don't have to stick to a strict... 'you must go here and do this, then go here and do that" theme. You can just light out on your own. Yes, there are missions, large and small, lots of weapons to find and upgrade and create! I love how you can drive around in the cars to go places, run over zombies and even do bootleg turns(!), or 'fast travel' to a location. All in all I would highly recommend this game!

Dead Island is FUN!
It really comes alive though when you're allowed to explore at you're leisure. Taking on side quests can be a bit If anyone has seen zombie flesh eaters (1979) then you would agree Dead island has similar qualities, most likely due to the fact they both include a tropical island and zombies.I love the realistic touches and the added difficulty some of it presents and I for one will be having fun with this game for a long time.

Dead Island sparked the interest of gamers worldwide with a beautifully artistic trailer set to an emotional piano track. The game play videos promised a new and more realistic way to fight that would require the player to think more strategically about their attacks or die in a zombie swarm. As an open world, zombie apocalypse first person perspective, melee fighter with multiplayer Dead Island provides a very unique combination of many game play elements, used in other games, but it looks like Techland may have bit off more than they could chew with this huge undertaking – as an abundance of bugs ruin a very fun, and visually stunning zombie killing game. After choosing from one of the four stereotypical characters, who each specialize in a certain type of weapon, the player will find themselves waking up in the middle of the zombie apocalypse at an island resort. Each of the characters has their own customizable skill trees and ”Fury” abilities – which are improved as experience is gained by completing missions and killing enemies. The easily avoidable and boring plot involves the group of four survivors attempting to find a cure, escape the island, and help as many survivors as they can on their way. The mission structure is pretty basic. Groups of survivors that have holed-up for safety on the island assign the player (or players) tasks such as gathering items, travelling to certain locations, or escorting a NPC to safety. The mediocre voice acting isn’t helped by the lack of depth in the story. Despite competent character designs, animations are jarringly robotic and flat out ugly at times. That said, the very large, open world of the island is gorgeous with beautiful landscapes and realistic road and building layouts. Right from the start players are introduced to the post-apocalyptic necessity of scrounging for items and money in luggage and closets. Every day tools like hammers, paddles and bats are utilized as weapons while other found items can be appended to weaponry to change their properties and add damage, for example: a bat with nails or electrified machete. Weapon modifications require a work bench, money, a recipe (which can be found or earned by completing missions) and the necessary ingredients (i.e. items) – which can be found scattered around the island inside trash bins, computers and other nooks and crannies. It’s similar to the weapon system in Dead Rising but lends to the feeling of realism as the player is desperate for anything to fight with – rather than grounded in a mall with a humorous selection of weaponry. Throughout the game the weapons and the modifications become more interesting which makes the effort put in to find money and items rewarding. That said, the speed at which weapons degrade is believably fast and, of course, requires money to repair. The game fails to introduce the player to the weapon degradation system and an uninformed player may fight with dulled blade or a broken bat for a long time before realizing that they need to change weapons. It’s a good thing that the inventory size allowed is large and switching weapons is fairly simple. Dismembering zombies with home made weapons is extremely satisfying in Dead Island. The first person perspective, which requires targeting specific body parts, can feel awkward at first – but swinging a customized axe and removing a limb from an oncoming zombie is beautifully gory and so enjoyable th Read full review

Amazingly fun zombie slaying game! Worth my money by far!
Great new zombie game Pros; - Leveling up with Skill Tree to upgrade stats - Loads of weapons to pick from - Crafting your weapons to make 'em better - Free roam so you can explore - Game is humungous - Good graphics for a zombie game - Nice and good flow in the gameplay - Realistic fighting (cutting off limbs or breaking bones) - Various missions with many different objectives - Co-op missions that you can join anytime Cons; - Running around takes a while (although you get vehicles at times, but now always..) - Bit of glitches - Most weapons are melee, still has ranged weapons but what I've seen mostly melee - Lip syncing on the people is off at times - Multiple texture glitches - Dying only loses money, should have a higher penalty, also you spawn very close to were you last were - Game at times is extremely easy, or super hard Overall is my favorite zombie game I've played yet, alot of my cons could be fixed with an update so we will see. It seems like you would either love or hate this game so I'd recommend renting it first. But definitely love the gameplay the most out of everything, slaying zombie hordes is just pure hilarity and fun. It does have a complex storyline that has yet for me to lose interest in and still following it and now just walking around and killing zombies. Read full review
