It's an old game but it's still fun. Sadly when you get the newer version you can't play with people who have the old version.

Dead Island is a game where you are a random person, surviving the zombie apocalypse on a paradise vacation getaway island. Most games would rely on an abundance of firearms, but Dead Island challenges you to do this with melee weapons Dead Island is an amazing game, that you can play on your own or WITH friends, which makes it better.

I love the Dead Island series. When I saw it up on sale, I just had to grab it. Its a great zombie survival game that has a good story line. The game provides a fun challenge solo, or a head-bashing soccerfest of who can kick the zombie down first. There is a bit of a lull when chasing down sidequests, but they do get you some good loot or resources. I have played this game multiple times completely through and still havent gotten bored of it.

Dead Island Review Dead Island Definitive Edition is an action role-playing game. It is a remastered version of the original Dead Island game, with updated graphics and improved gameplay mechanics. The game takes place on the fictional island of Banoi, which has been overrun by a mysterious outbreak that turns people into zombies. Players take on the role of one of four characters, each with their own unique abilities and skills, as they try to survive and escape the island. One of the standout features of Dead Island Definitive Edition is its open-world gameplay. Players are free to explore the island at their own pace, discovering new areas, completing quests, and battling zombies along the way. The game also features a crafting system, which allows players to create new weapons and items from materials found around the island. The combat in Dead Island Definitive Edition is satisfying and visceral. Players can use a variety of melee weapons, such as baseball bats, machetes, and axes, to dispatch zombies in brutal fashion. The game also features a leveling system, which allows players to upgrade their skills and abilities as they progress through the game. One of the drawbacks of the game is its storyline, which can feel clichéd and predictable at times. The game also suffers from some technical issues, such as glitches and bugs, which can be frustrating for players. Overall, Dead Island Definitive Edition is an enjoyable action RPG with plenty of content to keep players engaged. Its open-world gameplay, satisfying combat, and crafting system make it a must-play for fans of the zombie genre. However, its predictable storyline and technical issues may be a turnoff for some players.

It's a really fun game that you can play solo or with friends to take out many zombies with impressive skills for each of the four characters.
