Dead Island review


My thoughts on Dead Island:

Finally a game I was waiting for (almost 4 years?!). In many reviews Dead Island is compared to Left for Dead; well I have to admit I haven't played any Left for Dead at all, so I can't tell if it's better or worse (most say worse). First I'll try to describe it:
It's something like a mix of Resident Evil + Crysis + Fallout + Diablo 2. Resident Evil because of the different Zombies; Crysis because of the Island; Fallout because of the freedom in the world and Diablo 2 because of the items and the hacking and slaying + collecting.
You shouldn't search for a deep story - because the story is more like Contra for example - just kill everything. Which means it's more of a Ko-op game. So don't play alone and go get 3 friends.
Besides [playing it for "free" online, is pretty easy].
Now some details:
You can choose from 4 different characters, each of them has his own speciality and a 3 unique skilltrees. There is a huge variaty of weapons and modifications - baseballbat + nails = nailed baseballbat!!!! - from a Katana to a Sledgehammer to a machine gun; there is everything and they have different unique levels.
So if you think a (almost) free world RPG Ko-op Zombie slaying game is something for - it's Dead Island.
But now some disadvantages:
Well as said, there is no real story. The graphics aren't really great (maybe a little bit worse then Far Cry 2?). It somehow can get boring, because you're really just hacking and slaying like a retard the whole game through. Can't think of anything negative right now.
So, I hope I could help you with your decision of playing this game - see you next review.
Next time, I'll try and hack my Wii again (Letterbomb) and I'll try some Wii games (Xenoblade, FatalFrame 4, the calling).

  1. The trailer made it look good, but then, trailers can make anything look good.

  7. Heard from a buddy it's very repetitive. Still sounds quite good to me though so I kind of wish I could check it out somehow.
