Dead Island trailer stirs emotion but will the game be any good?

Looking at the 2007 GC video and one could be mistaken that we're looking at a very different game considering at the time no one batted an eyelid.

The only promising aspect of this game is that it's "open-world" based.

Meanwhile, it's also an FPS according to their website... which is completely.. unoriginal.

and it has 4 player co-op!

it's not really a 'shooter' though, considering guns and ammo are rare according to devs.

3rd person wouldn't be as good imo, too much like dead rising.

in third person it couldve perhaps been better than RE or DR.....but who knows.

The main thing that gets me excited about this game is the multi-layer zombie damage, that looks very interesting.

Yea the web is buzzed about this CG trailer.... but gameplay will paint a better picture of this games potential.

Off Topic:
I dont like that this one trailer spawned interest in making a movie and generated unbelieveable amounts of hype yet no one knows if the game will even be good..

Yeah, it's no Chuck Green especially if it's a serious game.

'which is completely.. unoriginal. '

Well, kinda I suppose. How many Zombie Fps's are there?

I can think of one, but that's about it.

EDIT:Also, what's all that '-End of Line ' crap about?

Jesus Christ did the guy who wrote this wake up from a coma today or something?

Public service announcement: Dead island trailer, looks epic but not really relevant to gameplay. Is it gonna be any good? Nobody really knows because no gameplay footage has been released.

There ya go games journalists, on behalf of everyone who checks out n4g -


(the crysis 2 leak DOESN'T count)

Actually if you bothered to read the article it links to a 2007 gameplay video, so you were saying?

wallis2580d ago

Are we clicking the same link? Nooooo gameplay footage for me.

Also the headline for the article is "Dead Island trailer stirs emotion but will the game be any good?". It's the article in the context of n4g that I'm criticizing not the article itself. My point remains the same, Dead Island and Crysis 2 have dominated this website.

MaggieA2579d ago try that. but you prove the very point the article is making. They released this gameplay footage and a realtime damage video in 2007 and you've not heard of it before until this new trailer.

Can't tell if the game will be good but its off to a good start.
