This is a better looking version of the original Dead Island game, with the same content. If you never played the other version of the game, this is the one to get with improved visuals. I still think the trailer for Dead Island is the best video game trailer of all time but my expectations were not met. I wasn't a fan of the crafting, story and quests in the game. The blood and action was fine though and the 4 player co-op was great playing with friends. Riding in vehicles with friends and killing zombies was also entertaining and crafting a electrical barbed wire bat was pretty cool.
Posted: June 1 this game is without a doubt better then the original, however i feel that dying light is still a far superior zombie game compared to this but if you enjoyed this series like i did you will welcome the graphical improvements this definitive edition brings and since its very cheap if u already owned the original, why not. If u are new to this series this version will be good for you as its cheap and it has fixed most of the bugs that plagued the original game. 8/10 would recommend for fans of this series however dying light is a better buy as its better in almost every way
Dead Island isn't without it's issues. Let's be clear about that. It's still buggy, it's still somewhat unbalanced, and it's still frustrating. This Definitive Edition has had a very nice graphical overhaul which makes quite a difference, and it certainly makes for a more immersive experience because of that. The game itself is a first person melee combat exploration around a very pretty island, picking up quests and violently despatching zombies through various means. As I said, it's not without it's bugs (some of which are charming, some of which are downright irritating), but it's good fun nonetheless, and for the price to include the full Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide (haven't played Retro yet) it's certainly good value - especially when you consider Xbox and PS4 owners are looking at three times the price for the same package.
Open world and zombie apocalypse. This is the perfect combination for a survival horror game and that's the whole concept of Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide. Set on a tropical island the game puts you in the shoes of one of four survivors that must find a way to leave the island ASAP. The place was invaded by the undead and your chances of survival are very thin. The gameplay mixes FPS, melee combat and RPG elements. Basically, each character represents a class and has his own special skills. The game is very intense. The zombies can be very dangerous and running away is often the better option. (And you should install the Romero mod that will make everything even more intense!) With good visuals, excellent atmosphere and visceral combat both Dead Island games are great survival horror games.
Not much has changed since the release of Dead Island; the zombies are still as threatening as ever, the quests are the same as they always were, and the combat still rides the fine line between enjoyable and frustrating. If you played the original Dead Island and its DLC, there is nothing new here for you; this game is meant solely for those who did not get a chance to play the original Dead Island, because nothing aside from the visuals have changed. The graphics are vastly superior to the original version, but sadly that is the only thing that has changed for the better. Luckily nothing has changed for the worse, but everything but the graphics has stayed the same. Of course, there is the addition of One Punch Mode, but that?s really more for laughs and something extra to do, as it completely removes all of the tension the regular game?s combat brings. If you never played the original Dead Island and have a decent computer, buy the Definitive Edition. Now that the Definitive Edition exists the only reason to buy the original/Game of the Year Edition (if you haven?t already) is if it is heavily discounted and the Definitive Edition is full price.
