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.

Very fun game

Beca
Verified purchase
It has its faults but this game is always great fun. From modding weapons, to using cars as safe havens, to running down zombies in a car non stop, I have always had fun with Dead Island. Would recommend to anyone looking for a lot of mindless fun.

Should play it with friends

Dead Island, is definitely lacking by modern game standards but is a great game to play with friends and/or while a bit stoned. A product of 2012, this game may not have aged the best but is still good from time to time

a zombie apocalypse like no other

Well, well, well... where do I even begin with Dead Island Definitive Edition? This game is a zombie apocalypse like no other. I mean, who needs a boring old survival game when you can have one that's filled with the undead trying to rip you apart? First of all, the graphics are so good that it's almost like you're actually there. Except, you know, without the smell of rotting flesh and the risk of becoming a human happy meal. The game starts off with you waking up in a hotel room with a wicked hangover, but little did you know that the party was just getting started... except it's a party of zombies. Yay! You get to run around the island trying to survive while completing quests for various people. And by quests, I mean you get to do all sorts of things, like fetch items, kill zombies, and even help some dude get his teddy bear back. But the best part of the game? The weapons. You can find all sorts of things lying around the island, like baseball bats, knives, and even a freaking chainsaw. It's like a game of scavenger hunt, but instead of finding Easter eggs, you're finding weapons to kill zombies with. All in all, Dead Island Definitive Edition is the perfect game for anyone who wants to kill some time and some zombies. Just make sure you have enough snacks and drinks nearby because once you start playing, you won't want to stop. Unless, of course, a zombie bites you and turns you into one of them. Then you'll have to stop... or you can just keep playing as a zombie. Who knows, maybe it'll be a whole new gaming experience.

Good with some flaws

Cordinia
Verified purchase
Fun game with some dated mechanics. It can get a bit janky with lots of zombies on screen, and the collision detection isn't the best. However if you are just looking for a fun zombie game this one is pretty good for the price.
