Neocrisis: Here is a new video showing nearly 20 full minutes of gameplay for Dead Island coming to PS3, 360 and PC.
most of it was from the last video but without commentary. still excited to see more of this though! bring on E3
Really don't get the hype with this game. It's not a particularly good looking game or seem to be a particularly exciting one. That said, Dead Rising is one of the most shallow and vapid games and it's very successful. I guess it's just people's fascination with Zombies.
The only zombie games I've thoroughly enjoyed was L4D (only on PC) and Dead Nation because they gave me a sense of rush. I'm hoping Dead Island can do the same.
Dead Island...is well dead! Super Nice CGI trailer got everybody really hyped up including myself saw the actual game play a while back and BOY was I disappointed. The Game play is really clunky and seems more of a chore than fun
I agree, I watched the first 4 minutes and actually nearly fell asleep. I hope this is really early footage, because as you say it looks clunkier than pretty much any other game I've seen. Don't understand the hype at all. Us gamers can be a stupid bunch sometimes ey...
This is the zombie game I have longed for! Visually it's nice for it's size. They have done many things to give you the feel that your character is part of the world (arms,legs,sounds and water effects). To call this game boring or dull just goes to show that some have no imagination and would rather developers stick to same old tired formulas. This looks miles better than dead rising and L4D. Day one for me and please no more spoilers. PS3 and 360 gamers are in for a treat yay!
I disagree with you. It's obviously the early part of the game, hence the "lack" of action going on. But considering the way it looks now for an OPEN-WORLD game, I'd say it's pretty impressive. Not to mention it has 4-player co-op on top of that (I smell borderlands influence here). Naturally, this game is better left played on PC where 60FPS and higher texture effects would definitely do this game a lot of justice. -End statement
i like the fact that some zombeis are wandering around,, while others are on the floor waiting to see you to stan up, plus, there are different ways they run, its nice to see that :D
Somehow never seen this before, well, let me get comfortable.
The first trailer release for this game made it appear EPIC! this video makes it look, Meh!
the game seem really wonky :/
This game would be amazing, if it was more survival horror, like runing away from zombies, conserving ammo vs. the "Dead Rising" approach where it has that arcade feel to it
At some point you just might have to run for cover or conserve ammo we don't know yet. This is not dead Rising
What fun is it to run away from enemies like a little pansy boy?
few things i noticed: dialogue is horrible. it doesn't feel like your life is in danger. if anything if feels like the game is script putting a group of zombies as you go through the level. also i noticed how much is on the screen. when you run there a meter right smack in the middle of the screen. this is not a huge problem to me but i feel like it takes away from the realism of the game. the graphics however look really well done. effects in the environment and when she was driving the car look pretty good as well. This game looked amazing in the trailer, but now the truth had to come out eventually...
Man, freaking ad after the 5min mark.. geez! Well, so far color me unimpressed.. that voice acting is terrible.. look like a TC mod, that's the vibe I'm getting from it.. and unless it's the video - what's with the GFX, they seems to have a thick filter over them - washed out and blurry.. *EDIT** 10min mark - oh look another ad.. Gameplay is rather generic, shadows look decent enough as are the ambient sounds.. the zombie sounds are annoying and the voice acting is still terrible **EDIT 2** 15min mark, yep another ad.. Well, quite literally some braindead AI in this, the fact that that Lvl 11 Thug zombie didn't even try to follow the player out of that room says it's all.. is it all scripted? Now it's reminding me of 'Dead Rising' but instead on being stuck in a mall, you're on a island..
Looks like a game that has/had potential.... but doesn't look like it was used well. I will wait and see what it is like when it releases. I like Zombie based things and no-one has ever made a truly class Zombie game, but this looks like it has a few of the right ingredients even if it turns out to be nothing special... so I will maybe get it! I hope you can turn the stupid comments off as the character saying stupid shit every time they do something will get old quickly!
Okay The reload animation is fck up, Maybe they will fix at launch but other than that dialog every 2mins from the character is really annoying if she/he repeats the same thing. It looks like a good game, but they need to improve big time.
20min mark - stupid ad.. Yep, the potential is there, just not seeing it in that short 20min presentation. Yes, the comments made by the player after killing a zombie will drive me mad if we can't turn those off.. Definitely has that "arcady" feel to it.. like Omar91 said - I'm not seeing any real sense of danger in it. Do we know if there a night portion to this game - cause you could really crank up the tension and sense of danger, if part of the game takes place at night. Also, what time period is this set in? judging from the car models I'd say late 70's early 80's. Still want to play it though - even if it's just a rental.
It sounds as though they're galloping when they're walking/running.
this really could become an interesting experience. it just needs a little more polish than techland games usually have.
they need to fix a couple of things in the game like the reload animation is horrible the dialog is bad and some other things other than that im liking it so far is looking pretty cool.
<removes from wanted list> game SCREAMS amateur: group drives up in truck..first dialog line we are safe now because of you. we won't make it without food. We need to find a ride into town.. Didn't they all just get out of a freaking truck?? What is with all of the pickup trucks everywhere? Use the same model much?
If somebody told me this was a mod project made by a bunch of amatuers, I'd tell them to give up. Paying $100 for this in Australia, get f***ed.
