I remember Dead Island fondly upon it's original release. Numerous hours running around the various vistas found on the island of Banoi and killing zombies and discovering it all was such a pleasure. Which is why I was so confused when I returned for the Definitive Edition (with some friends). The game in it's entire package is a fairly okay zombie-apocalypse on a tropical island simulator experience, and despite the glow-up the Definitive Edition supposedly gave it, I still felt it's age. The outdated, and frankly, annoying, stamina bar that runs out far too quick when the game places 10 zombies in front of you. The lackluster whimper that was supposed to be a jump. The slippery environment. Maze-like structures that come accompanied with an unhelpful map. And the aggravating moment when you, the punch character, uses their big ability only for it to run out when the big scary version of a zombie bowls you over (it attacks fast and it's difficult to land more than 2 punches). Really, what I am saying here is; the game was fun when it first released, but it really does not hold up at all. One of the reasons I still enjoyed this game was because I brought friends along and we were just doing stupid stuff all the way through to keep us entertained. It might just be me, though, from being blind from nostalgia or being too pampered by 'modern gaming' to appreciate the grime this game has accumulated. In the end. It succeeded in keeping me entertained once again so many years later, and that's good enough for me when that's all I asked of it. So I can not be too picky at that point. haha.

A classic console game comes back to PC via Steam, definitely worth buying at the very least as a game to screw around with friends on.
