Dead Island 25 on Amazon, a few Q's because I'm SERIOUSLY considering it.

you mean the optional analog melee?

that was great in concept but didn't work if you inverted your stick because it inverted the swings as well making it awkward.

What got me was the gun aim melee mechanics.
I mean, why do games utilise this?

^ I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but....

If you are talking about the option to use analog sticks....it is purely an option.

If you are referring to the triggers as opposed to face buttons, then that is not the problem with the game, but with your preference.

As for aiming with the analogs...this is meant to target specific body parts.
You don't just press buttons at random and hope they hit, but you can target a specific body part such as head, arms, legs, torso.
This is meant to add more depth & strategy....Want to prevent a thug zombie from swiping at you, then break or cut off it's arms. Want to decapitate a zombie, then target its head...& etc.

This really is a great system.

What exactly would you like to see used instead ?

Mod- Just so we're clear, creating false statistics to give your provocations the air of credibility is really offensive when you're doing it to smear a nation.

As in your melee weapon doesn't have a physical presence. You hit depending on whether your crosshairs were on the enemy at the point of firing.

I thought the game was extremely mediocre.

I was actually thinking about getting this game when it got cheaper but after reading that, i have lost all enthusiasm.

You guys are pretty harsh

Most games last year never kept me interested in finishing the single player Dead Islands probably the only game last year i fully beat i first completed the game on my own and then later went through it with two friends both times it was a blast for 25$ this game is a no brainer it does what dead rising completely failed to do Open world tons of weapons and no stupid time limit that stops me from going on zombie killing rampages and the skill tree from borderlands was good too
