Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player's only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player's ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan's fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game's unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What's more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.

With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland's acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

 great so far...

| | See all MartinsBluRay's reviews (46)

only had this a couple of days (the beauty of pre-ordering) but am thoroughly enjoying it, the graphics are great (spectacular in places) storyline is acceptable (same old) and missions can get a bit repetitive but as a package it's an immersive one, opening up and exploring new locations is addictive and the levelling up and weapon upgrading is more reminiscant of an RPG rather than a shooter (something which you soon realise this isnt) overall this is well worth a purchase...

 the best ever zombie game

 Something Different

I had this on a preorder,and was seriously considering cancelling it after reading some very unflattering reviews,but i,m really glad i didn,t.I have put in about 4 hours gameplay and barely scratched the surface of this game,there is so much to do.This game has longevity,something seriously lacking in the campaign modes of todays FPS.
I say FPS,but this is far from being that,as you hardly ever get the chance to lay your hands on a gun.This is close quarters combat with anything you can lay your hands on.What i found most impressive about the gameplay is the sense of vuneralbility you feel playing it.As its first person view ,you are constantly turning around checking for danger,the undead appear out of nowhere with alarming speed,when you are in the act of performing a task or fighting off another zombie.
When i preordered this,i wasn,t sure what sort of a game i was going to get,but i am pleasently surprised with what i have played so far.One thing i have learnt,is to ignore reviews by so called non biased critics,and to trust my own judgement.

 Only one problem

A highly addictive game with a great story and fantastic gameplay, the only reason I haven't given it a 5 star review is I can't stand the auto-save feature. You cannot manually save your game therefore If you all of a sudden find yourself wanting to do something else, you have to wait for it to automatically save or lose your progress since the last save. I would recommend this game to fans of the Left 4 Dead and Undead Nightmare games, however buyers be wary of the annoying auto-save feature.

 Give it time...

The game is good with the world you are in giving you some amazing visuals, The zombies are well detailed and the layers system is very nice and can also be nasty when you break a zombies arm. However, The start to the game felt very slow. I felt I was running around doing the same thing making it abit tedious, after getting bored with doing the same thing I haven't progressed any further and I have about 2 hours of game play. I'd say give it time for the price to fall a little and then buy. A great game if you have the patience.
