"Refreshingly brainless and made with a lot of heart, Dead Island 2's repetitive quest design and disappointing conclusion don't stop it from being a whale of a time."

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.

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.

First off, if you are stuck at the slayer picking screen, you have to install the Windows Media Feature Pack, dunno why, took me a few hours to figure it out accidentally and get the game running. The game is good, great visuals, altough mirrors have no reflections, not even fake ones, that's weird for 2023. Gunplay, melee weapons feel good, the damage models are great, the story is a lot more engaging (but not serious at all) compared to the first game which was really dry and dull. I think 40-something bucks for 10-20 hours of mindless zombie slaying fun is a good deal. Not a memorable game but a nice fun ride after work for a couple of weeks.

It's a big disappointment compared to the original and Riptide, they were so much more fun. It's not open-world like the originals, and you can't drive around in a vehicle like the originals. Graphics are nice - stunning in places, but the zombies respawn too quickly in areas that you've just cleared. But at least killing them is visually impressive, even if the control system is a bit weak. It's a once-through for me on this game, that's if I feel like completing it. I'd recommend it if you like zombies, but not so much if you loved the freedom of the original.
