Excited to play Dead Island? Then forget all about that cool trailer.
I didn't think it was going to be anything at all like the trailer. I've learned through years of media consumption that trailers mean absolutely nothing in the long run.
I learned my lesson from the Ps3 'tech demo's" in 2005
Something tells me you don't have a PS3. Maybe It's me... *facepalm*
Sony delivered on those tech demos for the most part.
Great job of bringing fanboyism into a nuetral story. Hope your mother is proud.
I've learned my lesson from all the Halo trailers that have come out. Game always turns out to be the same crap, with a boring campaign.
Agreed. I still remember how I saw that tech demo for Killzone 2, and then when the actual game came out it was . . . wait, what was your point again?
wasn't that a neutral story? STOP THIS GODDAMN FANBOY WAR!
Something tells me you only own an XBOX 360.
No Killzone 2 really doesn't play like in the trailer... Killzone 2 has better fire effects some better helghast animations and better ai. In the 2005 trailer the helghasts look like boring mindless enemies in killzone 2 they are sneaky devious little bastards. Maybe you haven't player Killzone 2 I can't see how you could say that the 2005 trailer seemed to have better gameplay than KZ2. It was miles worst. Oh and... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
eesh. Didn't mean to start a war over this. I'm still looking forward to the game as the rest of it sounds interesting.
What a disappointment.
Even though the two are totally different, it sounds like might still be fun to play.
Hey! At least we can look back and enjoy the trailer, right.... right? Great article
Yeah, I agree. Just enjoy the trailer separately from the game, and it's win-win.
I'll judge for myself when I see some gameplay joystiq gave the game praise in there article
Might as well have had one of the zombies do the Dreamworks smirk at the end. Of course, the game itself can still be good.
That article was pretty stupid. Comparing it to all these games like no other game copies elements from other games. "Hey you kill zombies in this game, lets compare it to other games that has zombies in it and call it unoriginal. Oh and this game has guns so obviously it's copied Halo and whatnot."
welcome to pretty much all the gamer press.... depressing isn't it?
I hate how not a single game can be made without being compared to other games now. Unless it blatantly ripped off another game (which this one doesn't seem to have), stop comparing.
This article was full of fail. Did the writer try to take specified elements from the game and then show us that its in some other game and then not original? "You can go anywhere you can see (Assassin's Creed) on the island of Banoi". LOL, so if you can go anywhere you can see it's automatically ripped of from Assassin's Creed? "You might find a gun with one clip of ammo (Mirror's Edge) later on" Oh come on.. I feel that this is going be good. First of all it's a Zombie game and I'm a Zombie fanatic. Secondly it's open world and it has rpg elements. I think that almost everything we see in games today are something that you can find on some other game as well. The "catch" is that who delivers it better.
Damn what a shame :\ But I kinda have a bone to pick with critics with this stand point. How dare they not have any original ideas I mean you use weapons (Halo, and Call of Duty) to kill enemies (Uncharted) and level up your skills (Fable). The game is projected onto your TV (Killzone), and is controlled with a controller (Pong). I think its also funny that the author writes at the end that the game uses "exploding propane tanks/barrels and collectables (all games)" LOL I mean come on of course games share common elements but lets not think that the developers are sitting there scrapbooking a game together :P Cause otherwise this article is equal to me writing a news report about how air is still breathable. Its pointless
"How dare they not have any original ideas I mean you use weapons (Halo, and Call of Duty) to kill enemies (Uncharted) and level up your skills (Fable). The game is projected onto your TV (Killzone), and is controlled with a controller (Pong)." LOL! I can't stop laughing. I'll judge the game for myself later on. Too bad the author gave amazing bad comparisons.
still sounds fun to me... lol
LOL i saw this coming from a mile away. Game was never going to be good. Ever notice multiplat devs always debut games in CGI trailers while Sony devs use real-time gameplay? To me it shows who is most confident in their work.
Of course you don't play "the trailer". Article fail.
As I expected, this seems like another lame zombie game and not a truly emotional one. 'sigh' zombies get out of my games now please you have been overused.
Trailers always look better than what it actually is, that's how they get customers to run to the store.
Zombies+RPG=Orignal freaking enough. This guys just trying to sound like he knows something. If he knew anyhting about gaming (i.e. the way almost no game is ever original, but takes traditional mecahnics/ideas and makes them into something great)...this article wouldn't exist.
Now i'm am even more excited for this game. Take open world, add rpg, then add zombis, and mix. Then add melee combat for upclose and personal kills!! This game sounds like it will be the best game ever!!! EVER!!!!
