Fantastic with Friends

If you play this game on your own, you're sure to enjoy it, but you definitely won't be raving over it. With a friend or two, it's another story entirely. I first played through this game alone, and found it pretty entertaining for a few straight hours. You level up and have to scavenge weapons to survive in a free-roam zombie invested paradise. However, after a while I became bored and stop playing without any discernible reason to carry on. When I found out a friend had bought the game and wanted to play co-op, I was pretty excited to restart the story and try to become immersed again. Playing with a friend in co-op was exactly what I needed to get back into the game. Being with another person truly adds to the sense of survival, and makes for much more unique and interesting combat events. Visually, the game is good-looking enough to provide immersion and realism, with some well thought-out characters in the story. You should enjoy it enough alone, but to be truly enjoyed this game deserves 2+ players.

Dead Island is a super fun open world, free roam zombie adventure! Drive around, complete loads of sidequests, a great story- nice graphics and plenty to do. Craft and upgrade weapons to dismember, hack and blow zombies up!

A great game from great producers- and this version comes with all the amazing DLC!
