A great game, nice story line and great to play either on your own or with friends. The Rpg element is great and the upgrading of weapons is a nice feature. After alot of gameplay however the missions begin to become a bit repetitive and tedious, but apart from this it is still overall a really fun game

Dead island is solid zombie title. Although it had a few bugs, is still a solid title and the GOTY edition gives you even more. I have played through this game 3 times now and still loving the the fact that you go around with a machete and do damage. DLC is a little weak but GOTY edition is still the way to go

Overall not bad, an enjoyable game.
Pros: graphics are nice enough, has that brutality to them that we all love in a zombie game.
Pretty good zombie ai.
Interesting original take on the whole survival game type.
Some pretty nice included dlc.
Low production quality, some of the mechanics and physics to the game are kinda half arsed.
fairly dull storyline.
If you love zombies then this is a must have game, but don't go into it expecting the world, as although it has its moments overall I felt it was a little lack luster. Can't complain when you get it for this fantastic price though (With some nice bundled dlc on the disk).

The 1 reason this game got bad reviews opening weekend was because it had alot of bugs.
which is expected in any open world game.
the melee combat is well worth getting alone, also a good amount of blood and gore adds to the mix.
if you like Borderlands or zombie games in general you'll love this.

If you enjoyed the Dead Rising, think of this as dead rising mixed with a little bit of Operation Flashpoint or Battlefield and you have this. Its a pretty crazy game as you constantly get attacked by zombies but you have to adapt to survive on this island,very cool game

A good game if played with friends, but if played alone it is just bad. As you will find yourself most of the time walking for hours to get the things you need. The storyline is a bit blank and dull. Characters are boring and the environment always seems the same. But still a fun game if played with friends.

After finishing Dead Island, I must say it is really one of the more brilliant games of the year. Nothing new or original, but mixing different genres like never before to create a unique, enjoyable product. Glitchy at times, and suffers from poor storytelling at moments as well, but overall very enjoyable with lots of replay value.

A sick game for anyone who loves or wants an open world zombie game. It's combat system is nice and the 1st person view makes the game creepier. The game has 1st person shooter elements mixed with an RPG leveling system. It also has online multiplayer to play with friends, and trust me this game is sick with mates. There is no split screen tho which is my only complaint. For this price you get the game and the DLC which I hear is sick making the purchase so legit.

Great game but only if you play with friends. The storyline is a bit odd and doesn't quite feel right but is still good. The graphics of everything but people are quite cool and so is the layers system on Zombies which is were as you rip them apart you can see into them. The voice acting was a bit of a let down however as most of the characters just do not sound right.
