Dead Island

Postby Aesthetikz » Wed Sep 07, 2011 10:22 am

Got this today and I'm pretty hooked. =P~
It just seems to be really entertaining (To me at least) endlessly running around a Gigantor map finding all kinds of weapons and killing endless zombies (and the occasional crazy human~2 So far!). :lol:
I've been playing solo thus far, But if anyone wants to do CO-OP, Hit me up on Xbox under Aesthetikz (I'm lvl18/doing the end of chapter 1 right now).

I want this game or at least to play it. It looks like a fun zombie killing good time .
Yo is it kinda like dead rising 1&2 the play style of those?
I gotta know because it's all sold out here at the walmarts in Hawaii. I think game stop may have it in stock but I never get up early enough to go there darn night job got me working the from dusk till dawn type of hours. 8)
But any input on this game will help thanks ahead of time.

This game is great. I love how hard it is.

And it's really a mixture of Dead Rising and L4D2. Although it is way harder than both.

They better watch themself or else we will never see a dead Island 2. People don't take kindly to sexist text hidden in code even in M rated games.

I heard it was horribly glitchy at times.

Indeed,
I encountered many glitches but nothing too major and was able to play on, UNTIL my save game got corrupted...
Turns out this is a fatal problem across all platforms, And there is still no fix for it.

Ruined the game for me after it happened.
Why should I start over again if my save file is just going to corrupt again at some unknown point?

They had something great, But seems like they rushed it (Needed way more beta testing).

I traded in for Gears 3 today. [-(

There's alot of weapons customization like DR2, Lots of free roaming (HUGE maps) better gfx than L4D tons more interactive gore than any other zombie game before (if you ask me), very melee centered~There are guns, But ammo is very limited and likely wont save your bum from major attacks, only multi player is 4 player co-op (which is currently very buggy across all platforms), you can drive around in trucks and stuff, the sam b zombie song is awesome (lol, HOODOO YOU VOODOO BISH), etc.

It really is great game, They just rushed it before the other big games(gears, battlefield, cod) were coming out this fall, and lots of flaws were discovered after launch. The most severe being the completely random save game corruption which is still not fixed (they are struggling with it).
I lost 10 hours first time and about 35+hours second time, others have lost 100's of hours and multiple play throughs...

I still haven't found one for sale but I rented it from blockbuster and I logged in around 20 hrs and leveled my charecter up to level 18 or 19. But. I did see some of the glitches like when I turned it off and played again I was respawned in a different part of the island getting swarmed by 5 or 6 walkers kickin & punching the hell out of me right off the bat ( like I don't get enough of that at work lol ) but there was that and the chracters you have to escort to a safe house they fight back but they can fall in to a glitch and you see them repeaitly fall down and up and down and up - it's kinda funny but irritating ! I haven't lost any progress yet thank fully but the game is hours of fun or as I like to call it therapy ! But I still think I'll add this game to my collection.
