About Dead Island Definitive Edition

About this game

Developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver.

In Dead Island, you'll step into the shoes of someone who's been caught on the tropical island of Banoi amidst the zombie outbreak. Upon realising what's happening, you have only one goal: survive.

Remastered Experience

Dead Island Definitive Edition offers full HD with improved graphics, game models, and even a photorealistic lighting system to help you immerse yourself in the story!

Gore Everywhere

Don't feel bad for the zombies as you smash their heads, crack their skulls and slice them in half with the array of weapons available; they were going to try to eat your brain anyway! 

Safe In A Pack

Invite up to three other friends to join you in surviving the apocalypse! Live through the story together, and experience a world gone mad!

Tropical Nightmare

Explore the desolate island and feel the tense atmosphere of the apocalypse whilst you traverse it. Be careful with zombies, scavenge everything, and, most importantly: bash some heads in.

Feels like actual work was applied to the remaster to bring it up to meet what we want today. Other remasters, feel like they're mailed in the maximize the quick buck mentality. If you come in expecting to see the base game with improvements then you will get what you expect. If you expect to play a new version of the game that doesn't feel like the original then you will not enjoy the experience. It is fun and at times repetitive, but overall for the price point you can't ask for too much more.

A solid 8/10

Peak Xbox 360/PS3 era game. It feels a bit dated playing it in 2023 but overall still very enjoyable. Dead island kind of feels like a far cry game mixed with borderlands style humor. Both the genre and writing are very hit or miss depending on the person, so make that judgment for yourself. I'm a casual fan of both of those series so I had a good time with this. Enemy variety isn't too varied and combat is pretty one-note, but the crafting system and weapon durability system always have you changing around your weapons to keep things different. Overall a pretty great buy on a steep discount. It's a perfect game to boot up just turn your brain off for an hour or two.
