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 agree
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.

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.
