It'll pay for itself and leave some change for the devs. Which is the only thing that matters. They seem to be on it in terms of patches which is both a blessing and frustrating. It was clearly rushed at launch with plans to finish through patches but unlike other studios they were quick with the patches. This will be successful as it is now a working game on pc and consoles but their philosophy stinks.
I don't have the game yet but the 4 out of the 5 friends that are online right now on my friends list are playing the game.
about every one i know has this game not just friends i mean everybody i saw 2 dudes buying like 3 copies at gamestop when i went to get mine. this game is selling great
The game is unpolished as all get out, but it's sooooo friggin' addictive. Like, I don't mind that I can DRIVE A TRUCK IN THE OCEAN. The reactions the zombies give when you whack 'em around is fantastic. Seriously, my personal favorite zombie game thus far.
lmao, haha. I actually did that too, went under water and came back up fine.
It's hilarious. I'm expecting the twist to be you're Jesus Christ and that's why you've been able to walk on water the entire time. They seriously did an insanely great job on the zombies themselves, etc....but it's hilarious to see that, then kick a beach ball only to have it go about as far as a rock and not bounce, or float in water.
So should I get it
Yes, you should get it. Make sure you have a few friends to play with too. It's fun, and the recent patch fixes a lot of the annoying bugs. Just my opinion. I suggest you go watch some game play videos though as reviews are sometimes skewed.
I swear, who ever came up with this article needs to get a life! Game is bad ass and needs to be played by everyone!!! Do not listen to any of the haters out there. They are just envious!
I had some trouble finding the game, seems its sold out everywhere here, and even Deep Silver said that a lot of stores are having trouble keeping it in stock. Its seems its selling really well
Analyst predictions won't live up to reality...
Bring on the inevitable price drop.
Fantastic game, though, I'll wait for a price drop before I actually buy it.
i saw some lady at the grocery store with the game, everyones buying it
Dude that was me
I have the 360 version and it could use some polish but over all it's fun as hell. It reminds me a smidgit of borderlands in terms of the missions and progress.
WHY ALL THE DAMN HATE FOR DEAD ISLAND?????????? SERIOUSLY WHY???!!!!! the game is a master piece, its the damn best game i've played in forever!, yet most people are treating it like shit, what is wrong with you people.
I'll tell you why I hate it. This is about the PS3 version. I've lost more than an hour of progress 5 times now, because the game lies when it says "game saved". Weapons I've upgraded and modified have either vanished into thin air or sat there blinking on the ground as I try in vain to pick them up. I lost access to a weapon mod quest reward because of a bug. The screaming/running "infected" will run through walls, vanish, then sometimes pop out of the ground. Today I was driving and the screen faded to black, then faded back in, and I wasn't in the truck anymore. Also today, there was a weird loud audio glitch that went on and on, but I didn't want to reset and reload because I'd already done that quest 3 times without getting credit for it. The online was equally buggy but smooth playing... until the patch... now the game freezes often and lags in between. I'd love a full refund for this buggy mess. Hands down the buggiest game I've ever played. I'd give it a 5/10 at this point.
How are the 360 or PC versions faring? I have the 360 version, and I've only lost progress on one really short, easy mission. The trick I've found is to not quit unless you've beaten the mission you're trying to do. If you, say, need to pick up and then deliver a teddy bear, don't quit after picking the teddy bear up or it will make you start over. Sure, it has some bugs that need hammering out, but otherwise, I'd say it's one of the most fun and addicting games I've ever played. Ever.
Selling like hot cakes at my work...
