Get ready for your return to Dead Island, a paradise to die for!
Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.
Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.
Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.
In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan’s fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game’s unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What’s more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.
- First-person melee combat
- 4-player coop

Good but not great zombie gameConanCookies12 | Jan. 10, 2016 | See all ConanCookies12's reviews »
First of all, this game does not live up to its trailer. Do not expect this game to be an emotional trip, or else you will be disappointed. As a game itself, it's fun and addicting, but just not a masterpiece. First of all, the gameplay is fun. You can kill zombies with all sorts of weapons, which is definitely fun to do. Killing zombies is basically the best part of the game, and is incredibly satisfying to do. Also, you can use the skill tree to become more powerful, and craft weapons to your own liking, so there's a little bit of RPG in the game too. The graphics are good, and the design of the game is pretty. Here are the bad parts of the game. The story and characters are not there. They obviously didn't try to make those two good, so don't expect those either. Furthermore, this game is badly optimized for PC. The controls are obviously made for controllers. Annoying movement, incredibly low sensitivity in menus, lots of bugs and glitches, and FPS drops. Most of this can easily be ignored by how fun it is the kill zombies. Overall, this game, along with it's spinoff, are worth getting while on sale, and fun playing with friends, maybe solo.
Not all starts of franchises are worth playing, but this one is!TayburrFripper | Nov. 10, 2015 | See all TayburrFripper's reviews »
if you want to play a shooter game thats set in a post apocalyptic Island (the title make sense yet?) with rpg elements and a few frustrating bugs can't stop you from enjoying a damn good game? then obviously you should get this game. However, if a glitchy game would bother the shit out of you, you can just grab the next in the franchise, but as your lawyer and physician, I highly *wink* recommend you stop being a wimp and deal with it and witness the beginning of a beautiful franchise grow in your pitiful soon to be much less pathetic gaming garden of awesomeness.
Very frustrating but fun gameChase_UC | Sept. 5, 2015 | See all Chase_UC's reviews »
It's buggy, it's glitchy, it'll make you rip your hair out at times, but it is so much fun. Nothing beats the satisfaction you get when you cut, smash, electrocute, burn, slice, explode, poison, run over and kick zombies. There's so many ways to kill zombies and there's a pretty good variety of them. Story is somewhat shallow yet intriguing enough to keep you going (but let's be honest, you're gonna have so much fun destroying zombies that you'll forget about the story). I highly recommend buying the GOTY edition just for the Ryder White DLC because it adds a very interesting twist to the story. I'd highly recommend this game to everyone, but be aware that it can be frustrating at times
A good start to the franchisegoro3d | July 14, 2015 | See all goro3d's reviews »
I enjoyed this game but I like the second game better! thats aside i had a great bit of funny playing this one as well as the second one and 4 player coop is always a plus for me. I rate this 90/100 cause all the quests get jumbled together and would auto switch to a quest I didn't wanna do and was focused on another quest. Still a great deal and worth getting.
Decent Zombie Survival RPG gameHighlander9782 | June 25, 2015 | See all Highlander9782's reviews »
This game had the best video game trailer I had ever seen and got me pumped to get this game. My expectations were a little too high so thats why I'm a little underwhelmed with the result. The graphics are decent, but the controls and gameplay are a little clunky and repetitive. You're going to be doing a lot of quests in this game, and many of them include finding supplies and helping people. I'm a big fan of Left 4 Dead 2, so I was hoping for similar gameplay but this is more RPG with crafting weapons, but the cool thing is the drivable cars to travel around the island. This is a fun game to play with 3 other friends, and the gore and bleed is plentiful when you're hacking and slashing zombies. I'm looking forward more to Dead Island 2 which is going to have 8 player co-op but this is a decent zombie killing game in a unique island setting.
