It's pretty fun, but take note that most of your attacks will be melee-based, as an island is not just going to have an arsenal around. Also, there is a lot of screen tearing, but none that I found to be too distracting.

It's a solid game.

Get some friends and it could be a possible 8/10 depending on connection issues.

Dead Island is weird in that the fantastic trailer did the game more harm than good I think when it finally released. It's fun with friends though.

It NEEDED couch co-op. Not including it was a sin.

This.

It plays like a Dungeon crawler. Each character is like a "class". Skill trees. Item descriptions/names use different colours to gauge quality. Missions are picked up through exploration and require things from item collecting, saving person "x" or some other slight variation.

I've put over 90+ hours into the game, played through multiple times with different characters, while playing with friends/family.

Granted my experience is based on the PC so I can't comment on how it runs on the system, but I can comment about the quality of the game.

The overall story isn't anything new but certain parts of the game are done well enough.

It gets a lot of blind hate on this board generally because it's first person (but it focuses more on melee rather than firearms most of the time) and it has zombies.

It really isn't like either of those games (L4D is a team game with a focus on making it from point A to point B and Nazi zombies is just a horde mode) but if you like zombies, have friends to play with online (not required but it makes the experience better) and enjoy RPG aspects in a game (leveling up, skill points, loot) I recommend it.

If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.
