Was thinking about getting this game. Is it any good?

7. Not really bad, but a few issues bring it down.

4. Too many issues and the game gets worse the further you get.

The city should have been the funnest section, but most missions have you go into the sewers to reach new locations.

Why does this bat cost $20000 to repair? Who am I paying?

Anyone who calls it "good"....is wrong.

My opinion of the game is from launch. If you know anything about Dead Island's launch, you'll pretty much understand why I'm rating it a 2.
Why not a 1? Because, I have to give it credit--it installed fine and launched the first time I tried it. But it's just downhill from there.

I read about patches/fixes/etc. since then, and even patching the kick from being the best weapon in the game, but I was way over that game before any of that stuff got implemented.

6.

There's a fun game buried under all the crap, but you have to dig awful deep to find it.

But it gets pretty tedious and really has to claw to hold onto even a 6.

Yeah, that trailer was good as f***. Then I finally got the game in a trade and it was pretty fun for the first few hours at least. I heard it gets worse once I actually get to the city, but, even now it's only like a 5.5/6 game. I think Dying Light is closer to what DI looked like.

Pretty sure I was in the same IRC during your fun times with Dead Island launch.
