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.
With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland’s acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

One of the best zombie games I've ever playedhabsvision | April 15, 2015 | See all habsvision's reviews »
This game has it all. A massive open world that spans 3 large maps, amazing graphics, great combat with plenty of bloody decapitation, almost endless crafting possibilities, an engaging story, 4-player online co-op, and the list goes on and on. Most criticism of this game came long before all of the bugs were fixed. Do yourself a favour and buy this game right now.

I was among many people excited for Dead Islands release, and disappointed when it turned out to be such a buggy, messy flop. However, upon returning to the game on PC some time later, I've found it to be much better than what we got at launch. The bugs have been wiped off, and all that's left is a pure zombie-bashing action RPG. If the horrible bugs turned you away, the game is definitely worth a second try now that it's patched up, though it's not without flaws still.
While the bugs have been resolved, their is a couple of small niggles that remain. Namely some weapons seeming very limp and unsatisfying to use, a glut of sidequests that can quickly fatigue a player(Though thankfully they can be ignored), and a slightly limp second half that abandons the tropical vacation island, for a drab grey city. So if any of that turned you away the first time, give it another miss, but if the only thing troubling you was bugs, I can say they're all but gone.

Dead Island was a big surprise for me. Techland’s game is a pretty solid Survival Horror with RPG elements. You have quest to do (Mostly supplies to gather and people to save) and a whole island to explore. But the real quality of this game lies in the zombies themselves. They are deadlier than they look. One or two is fine to fight. But more of them is a very dangerous situation. Running away is always the better option here. The story is pretty cliché for the genre. You’re are a bunch of individuals who happened to be immune to the virus so it’s always up to you to do the dirty job. However, I really appreciated the “villain” of the game. The atmosphere of the game is very creepy and the visuals are pretty well done. The soundtrack does the job but it’s not that memorable (Except for the main theme “Who do you voodoo?” which is quite catchy) I recommend you to install some mods like SweetFX and the Romero mod (for slow zombies that need to be shot in the head in order to die).
