As a fan of all-things zombie, I went in with high expectations and found that the game ticked a lot of the right boxes. Throw seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op into the mix so all of this can be enjoyed with friends or randoms and the appeal is a whole lot stronger, particularly considering the clever variations between quests.
Für mich ist dead island ein absolutes Meisterwerk egal op grafik, Sound, Atmosphäre und Terror horror ein absolutes muss für alle zombie fans wo the Walking Dead frisch raus kamm wollte ich schon immer ein geilen Open World zombie game und das habe ich bekomme mit dead island
Awesome game! RPG zumbi!!! I see people complaining that weapons break fast and it's hard , but what makes it so fun. Dead Island offers 4 characters with unique skills , giving the player the opportunity to build your character according to your playing style. It is a strategy game you can not go around killing zombies without equip weapons and seek equipment , the problem is that it has some lazy who think this game is LF4 is that the game will give you weapons and ammunition without any effort , I spent hours to climb from level to get XP to build my character this game is wonderful for those who like RPG !!, very last thing this game was made for people who enjoy slow and difficult rhythm game, if you like frantic games type dying light pass away .
Dead Island already divided reviewers into two camps. One thinks it's a mediocre, unfinished game, while others see it as a well-produced game - not perfect but deserving your attention because of the amount of work put into it and a few sparks of genius. We tend to prefer the latter camp - you won't feel cheated after buying a ticket to Banoi.
It's inspired, but turgid. Brilliant, but flawed. Fun, but infuriating. Like the living dead itself, Dead Island is a contradiction from beginning to end. However, I feel you need to play it, because despite copying so much from infinitely smoother games, there's nothing quite like it on the market. That, itself, is yet another contradiction in the confused, conflicted, often completely beautiful mess that is Dead Island.
It's all a bit laboured, a bit tedious, and it's the kind of co-op game that's more fun based on who you're playing with, than on what you're playing. It sits in this awkward middle ground between Borderlands and Left 4 Dead, never remotely matching either but never quite crossing into the territory where you should be avoiding it.
The world doesn't have the charm to warrant forgiveness, and progress-halting bugs prevent it anyway. With regular AI freezes and vanishing items, a mistimed autosave can prove fatal. Ultimately it all invites the refashioning of another line from Romero. When there's no more room in development hell, the dead losses will walk the Earth.
Wow what a game.. I heard the guy and a wannabe GameStop clerk bash this game by saying you equip a stick and a canoe oar.. We'll after playing the game they were right. You're 1st weapon is the only thing available at you're feet= a stick. Butt hat lasted 5 mins and that begins my review--
To help the undecided decide---
---this game was SOO much fun in a borderlands Meets fallout kind of way.
--the leveling is identical to borderlands. I love the impact the new perks have in combat and explore,
--character diversity. You have you're tank,ranged, badass sword Chinese chick, and a black female no nonsense cop(firearms specialist..
---the game is hit or miss it seems. I played it 3.5 times. I didn't finish the cop chicks run through,,but 4 months and I was done with D. I.
--chest/rare uber weapon chest farming is soooooooo addicting,,and the internet is loaded with guides and tips and tricks and routes to farm..
--never ending respawn means you can grind exp and resources anywhere and anytime..
--the game consist of 3 Main maps, and 2 other maps..
-the 3 are
The island tourist attraction suburbia, think Disneyland beach type beauty..starting map
--second is the games bread & butter. The urban city of Moserby.. Buildings and homes galore. The people are holed up in a church and you do is ions for each person you come in contact with for either money,exp or a rare weapon..
--the 3rd map is the str8 up jungle. Where the zombies are more advanced,numerous and the humans are tribal pirates like Vos pirates from farcry3...
--weapon custom--every weapon you get gets upgraded permanently at a workbench.. You use materials you buy or scavenge.. And you can level the weapon 4 times(usually all at once) and then you use the hundred schematics you find in the game like a Zeus baseball bat,. A wooden bat with metal wires hooked up to a invisible power source.. The zombies get whacked and they shake and you can watch or easily decaputate em.. And there's perks for mega exp or money for everything. Like 100 decaputate ones,,then 500 on and on and on.. I think it's infinite like borderlands2...
Look this is a pretty awesome game. It confuses me why a open world tropical paradise with awesome 1st person mechanics isn't rated higher.. The bugs are NOT game altering.. I never used any glitch to cheat besides classic luring zombies onto a mine or whatev....
Riptide continues in the same exact mold. So that's a dream come true for fans of dead island and a complaint of some. Riptide uses same exact everything only slightly enhanced. Think of maddens improvements. That's how riptide is.. So that's another incentive IMO..
--I'm hoping I can motivate 1 person to play this game.. They will repay the debt by convincing another to play and so on.....
Dead Island é um jogo divertido, tem um mundo aberto interesante, um enredo mediano e bem cliche até, e o jogo pega muitos elemento do excelente Left for Dead, os personagens que são jogaveis nao chegam a ser profundos, mais sao personagens legais, e cada um tem a sua vantagem, o grafico é bom, mais eu sofri muitos bugs, a dificuldade é boa, tem momentos dificeis, o trabalho de voz é bom, a fisica é bem fraca, e a trilha sonora é legal, é um jogo legal. Nota 7.2
I had high hopes for this games as the idea of a sandbox type zombie brawler game sounded interesting. However, after finally having played it I have to say that I was very disappointed by how lazy this game feels in its execution. Now, there is fun to be had (I was mildly amused the first 4-5 hours) but as the game continued all its flaws started to stick out more and more.
The story is less than bare bones with characters so uninteresting they might as well just be text messages telling you where to go next, and when the game seems so disinterested in telling a coherent story and about everything that happens and everyone you meet, then why should I care at all?
It just feels lazy.
Secondly, we have the combat, which stays basically exactly the same from start to finish in terms of moves. The only real variation in combat is in the crafted weaponry, and that frankly gets old faster than a mayfly. Add to that the lack of feel of reach and impact and you’ve got a very underwhelming combat system – no matter how many limbs you can cut off (if you can get around the rather awkward hit detection).
And speaking of impact… the most effective weapon I found in the game, was my foot. As there is no blocking system in the game, you use your foot to make zombies and infected stumble, and it seems more than a bit strange that a kick to the head (with a rather pathetic animation) is more likely to make zombies stumble and break their attacks than a sledgehammer, paddle, or machete to the face.
The combat system just feels lazy.
Then there is the mission structure, and oh my God where to start with that. You are basically just doing various fetch quests for random people that don't really seem to have any real consequences. Add to that the thing we all love – escort missions with all the annoyances that entails due to bad AI – and you pretty much got most of the game. However, where things get really bad, is how often the very same locations are used. Like in the slums where I got several missions all in the police station and some of them in the very same room!
That’s amazingly lazy.
And speaking of that, some of the missions seem to involve children, but apparently Techland couldn’t be bothered to make child models so the “children” are now a woman in a bikini asking for her teddy bear (making her sound as if she’s nuts), and a daughter who apparently is older than her father.
Then there’s the GPS which is supposed to show you where to go. If this was a real GPS, people would die of starvation before reaching their destination. On several occasions I found myself facing my destination only to have the GPS pointing away from it. At one point I decided to follow it, and it decided to take me around two buildings only to have me end up in the very same spot I left before it realized that my destination was right in front of me.
Now that is lazy.
Then there’s the crafting. What is the most important resource when crafting weapons? Is it nails? Duct tape? Glue? Tools? Sure, you need those, but the answer is - nope! It’s money! Yes, you apparently have to pay to use a workshop… No, you are not paying someone to use it, you are using money when crafting! How the hell this even begins to work is beyond my comprehension. Am I lining my weapons with money? Are the workbenches sentient beings? WHAT?
Lastly, there are the glitches (of which there are quite a few) and the fact that enemies re-spawn in the exact same places and in the exact same number every single time you return to an area.
How lazy are you, Techland?
So to sum up – Dead Island is a game that barely has a story, no characters of interest, a flimsy and superficial combat system, uninteresting weapons, a senseless crafting system, weak mission structure, and ultimately repetitive and boring gameplay that outstays its welcome long before its underwhelming conclusion.
I could have been more forgiving if Techland had realized the limitations of the game mechanics and made the game smaller and more focused – as well as actually picking a mood – rather than turning it into a lazy, repetitive, boring grind-fest.
Die Story und Charaktere sind nutzlos und komplett unnötig. Vorgestellt wurde Dead Island als Spiel in ner Zombieapokalypse auf einer Insel mit Charakteren, die einem wichtig sein sollen. Also, daraus wurde wohl nichts, man betrinkt sich auf einer Party und wacht auf, umgeben von Untoten, man trifft Überlebende und erfüllt Quests. Aus der First Person Sicht schlachtet man Zombies, erst mit normalen Waffen, wie einem Rohr später findet man eine Machete oder auch Handfeuerwaffen. Allerdings umgehe ich die Zombies lieber weil das Gameplay ****, das Trefferfeedback ist minderwertig, ich time den Schlag perfekt und treffe den Zombie nicht, oder auch die Feuerwaffen wenn man auf Menschen trifft, das Zielen und Treffen ist nicht abgestimmt und sehr ungenau, dies darf in einem First Person Action Combat Spiel nicht passieren, Condemned hat es hingekriegt. Man kann leveln und kann Fähigkeiten wie Ausdauer oder Inventarkapazität und mehr verbessern, ziemlich Standart rpg halt. Dead Island ist kein ernstes Spiel, sondern dumm, niemand riskiert sein Leben um einen Teddybär zu holen, aber dann erwarte ich auch coolere Waffen als einen Hammer. Es gibt verschiedene Bereiche, wie den Strand, Stadt, Kanal und Dschungel auch verschiedene Zombietypen gibt es. Jedoch ist das Spiel schlecht gebalanced, tausende Zombies laufen auf dich zu, später wird das immer schlimmer, man stirbt immer und immer wieder wegen dem schlechten Gameplay und das nervt, außerdem bestraft ein gutes Spiel einen wenn man stirbt, damit man aufpasst nicht nochmal zu sterben, aber die Feinde behalten die Lebensenergie von vorher, z.B ich musste einen Mann bekämpfen,der tausend Head Shots überlebt und einfach nicht stirbt, ich baller so lange auf seinen Schädel bis meine Munition alle ist, muss ich vielleicht aufleveln??, nein ich bin nicht zu schwach der Gegner hält zu viel aus, auch hier wirkt es wieder sehr realistisch. Alles in allem fühlt es sich widersprüchlich und falsch an sich an, auch Bugs und Speicherprobleme gibt es reichlich. Das einzige was unterhaltsam ist, ist im Coop Zombies die Arme oder gar den Kopf abzuschlagen, sie zu verbrennen und so weiter, da also der einzige Kaufgrund Gewalt und Zombies sind, sollte man sich dies gut überlegen, Dead Island hätte viel besser sein können und ist deshalb kein grottiges Spiel, aber es ist sehr mittelmäßig und enttäuschend
