Craig Tester of Games Pundit reviews the recently released Dead Island on Xbox 360.
The thing about Dead Island is it starts off slow, and makes the game seem lame, but man does it get good by the time you get a gun... (Chap 5) I'm Loving the game right now.. it's pretty cool -I really love the way they did the shooting... Feels really good. It's a Zombie game done really well for the modest budget they were working with... Plus, that update they came out with 1.10 on PS3 has fixed a lot of issues I was having before.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Chapter 3 i'm on, I think it's great already. Really this is close enough to the type of zombie game i've been waiting for. Guns sound like they will change it up a bit which is good, it's sort of adding a new element to the game. I'm surprised though I thought guns play a very minor role in the game? Is that right? I've experience just one bug so far(bout 5 hours) strange one, got to a checkpoint, Died. When I reloaded I was quite a bit ahead of the last checkpoint it even skipped a Thug for me...I died again, got swarmed by runners in the middle of a pool(Fury took care of them the second time). Anyway I reloaded again and got the checkpoint I was supposed to get in the first place, and fought thug again. Random bug anyway, not anything bad though. I'm surprised how much cars there are as well, i was given the impression they would be a rare commodity from the previews
I'm having a great time with it. I'm on the 360 version and have not had any issues I've read about, though a few of my mates have had freeze issues all on coop.It's really a fun game especially the coop side of the game. I can't get enough of it.
I had a gun in chapter 2. Not having a gun makes the game better anyway.
cahapter 2? Act 2
I want to pick this up on PS3, but I am worried about the lack of deep story and characters. Also and all the bugs I heard about. Might have to rent it first to try it out.
