So Dead Island has been around for a bit now, and the only reason I got it was because Mike got it and then Josh got it. That and it was on sale for $25.00 on Amazon.com so figured for multiplayer fun, lets do it!
- First, if you love Left 4 Dead / Left 4 Dead 2, this game should NOT be compared to it… Completely different “type” of game, but it does have the zombie theme in it. So, if you love to kill zombies, this will allow you satisfy that need.
I’d summarize Dead Island in this mathematical equation: Dead Island = GTA open world feeling + Left 4 Dead zombie world + Lots of bugs + shit story yet entertaining.
It is like GTA in the sense that you can receive random missions in addition to the main story line. You talk to some guy, he gives you a mission, you do it, get XP, come back and do more. It’s like L4D because… well there’s zombies, but it’s not linear like L4D. And lots of bugs… well because this game is buggy as fuck, for example, see the invisible car i’m in below.
So I would recommend getting this game if:
- It’s on sale again for $25 or less
- You have friends that have it too
- You like killing zombies
It’s entertaining, but only when you have friends that have the game too so you can have fun together killing shit. If I were to play this game alone, I would say there would be a 99.99% chance that I would get bored off my ass… but because of the multiplayer it’s fun. So there’s my thoughts. If you have friends that play it, get it on sale. If no friends have it, persuade them to get it with you… Then it’ll be fun!
