Graphics and physics are fascinating. The new Gore feature is just amazing in my eyes. Story could be a bit longer, but it's good written. And the side quests are more "story" like and not all the same "get me this and that" for the 100's time. If you like games in a zombie apocalypse, it's definitely worth the buy.

Recommend it, worth buying if you liked first Dead Island.

The first Dead Island was already fun, although after a few hours the routine sets in - collecting resources, pimping weapons, hitting things. The level design and the characters are the best sources of variety. L.A. looks realistic, the dismemberment of the zombies can be done in various ways, which is fun despite the routine. The fact that they respawn constantly can be annoying. The key assignment is not optimal at first (I found blocking with ALT problematic), but that's complaining on a high level. The game runs smoothly for the most part, has a motivating, sometimes humorous story and there is a lot for the eye. I keep forgetting about the quest and thinking to myself "wow this light incidence/ rubble pile/ backyard looks totally good/ real, especially with RTX. The game mechanics + controls are very similar to the first part, which still works well except for some minor details. I would have liked to see such an implementation for Battlefield Hardline, of course with humans instead of zombies. Conclusion: It's worth the money. Those who liked the first part will also be happy with Dead Island 2.

It's good. Better than the first, which wasn't that good. Better combat but don't like the stamina bar. A lot of things to do. Funny dialogue. Good graphics. Nice map(s). Decent gameplay. You don't fall over with the slightest touch like the first game. Easy to get used to. Some of the finishers get repetitive. Overall good.

Awesome game, worth playing now even if it's on Epic.

It's an awesome game. There isn't a full parkour system like Dying Light but I don't mind, the way it's designed is designed well. It feels open world-ish but has a metroidvania feel to it that I like a lot. The weapons are cool and unlike DL you can keep a weapon forever as long as you have the cash to fix it and upgrade it to match your level. Mods can be removed and changed without any degrading of the weapon. What I like the most is that the lighting looks just like Raytracing but it is 'pre-baked' apparently, and I can play it at full 4K resolution on my RTX 3090 without making the fans turn on hardly at all... something that a lot of games can't do on a 3090 that feature dynamic Raytracing. I often have to play at 1440p with other games because of how demanding Raytracing is.

The game has a very weak and uninteresting story. The developers position the game as relaxing, but there is no option to choose the difficulty level in the game, and you have to hit zombies many times, and they can also easily kill you, so it's impossible to relax in this game. Also, after playing for 2 hours, I still haven't received a weapon that can shoot. Overall, I didn't enjoy the game, neither from killing zombies nor from the story.
