The only thing I don't like about the game is that the weapons break quite fast, which isn't realistic in some cases.

This game is scary, what makes it good for me is creating the weapon system and most of the combat are melee fighting.

What makes it not that good for me is zombie respawning is really fast (i was on prison island and some thugs respawn real fast, running out of ammo, low durability weps, i GIVE UP) :D

And one more thing is, i hate escort mission in Jungle map

Single player, Dead Island was a superb experience. Close combat was exciting, navigating through the city level was a matter of picking battles and it created a sense of genuine fear and survival.

Co-op, Dead Island was an average to poor experience. Battles were about which player could get in first to do the most damage, run around without any fear.

One of those games better played by yourself :)

Yeah the game isn't as "open world" as I would have liked. The paths are very limited, no jungles or nature hikes, just small roads.
Now that Dayz is out I see Dead Island becoming more dead than it already is, mainly because Dayz is truly open world and can have more than 4 players so its essentially the first zombie survival horror MMO.

kind of surprising a game like that hasn't already come out, seeing as the friggin zombie apocalypse centers around survival, not co-op objectives or run for the end of the level scenarios. Those should all happen in a game spontaneously. I don't know why developers haven't done it yet, they must be stuck with all their left 4 dead wannabe ****.

This game is alright, not the worst I've played. It has an adventure element to it which is what makes games fun. The re-spawning zombies can kill the fun since NOT everyone wants to beat zombies to death with a lead pipe one after another the entire game. Too much battle, too repetitive.

Mapping is creative.

Fun coop game. Feels like borderlands 2 with zombies, but much more fun, even by yourself. Runs pretty good for a PC port, but suffers from some minor bugs. A must get anyways
