Dead Island


Dead Island is role-playing game that survive from the zombie attack Many people are comparing it with Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising, but finaIly I see a different in this game. I found the world filled with challenges, a character progression system and this game has interesting environments.

Deadly journey from a small off coast of Papua Nee Guinea. The story didn’t make you chills, but everything else makes up for it. You can choose one of four characters. Then you can explore massive maps. Get interesting quests, and can cut the heads of hundreds of Zombie.

 Because of its gore Dead Island doesn’t succeed (even If I liked the dismemberment). The world it creates is Dead Island's strength.  I trace  some areas toward the beach, then into the sewers to a prison cel. The screams of the infected or the roar of a damage sponge known as a "Thug” was rang out. From that perspective, I was on the island. I would slaughter every zombie I saw In the beginning, The tight alleyways overrun with monsters when I got to the city. Began from objective to objective  I just run. Didn’t playing a game. I was focusing on survival as if I were the one running from place to other place.

Objectively speaking -- like, right now from my keyboard and not playing the actual game -- that's a stupid thing to say. Dead Island doesn't really punish you for dying. If you croak, you wait five seconds and respawn with less money. Any damage you inflicted before heading to the great beyond remains. But I say that using hindsight. When I sprinted away from a zombie and heard its growls directly behind me, my heart pounded in my chest. I didn't think "Oh, I'll just let him get me and restart back there." 

You rarely feel safe in Dead Island, and that's how a zombie game should be. You have a limited stamina bar, so you can't run or swing your weapon forever. Med kits were few and far between in my experience, so scavenging for energy drinks and fruit -- which have to be used at that moment and can't be stored -- became part of the experience. Weapons degrade as you use them, so finding a "legendary" weapon was exciting, but not as exciting as finding a workbench to keep weapons in tip-top shape. 

Dead Island made me my character. I chose the weapons, the enemies to attack, and the side quests to take. When I leveled up, I chose in which skill tree to invest my new point in -- so even if you joined my game as the same knives expert I play as, we wouldn't necessarily have the same abilities. 

Special zombies make you switch up strategies. Thankfully, joining games is easy. When you're playing, a pop-up message will notify you if a player is close to you and joinable. If I see you sign on, I can invite you in. Of course, experience levels play into this. Players can only join the games of people who are equal or lesser levels. I can't be level 31 and about to win the game and have a level 1 player join me. It might sound depressing, but there are tons of character slots, so having a character for different sessions shouldn't be too tough. Plus, you can always switch your game to single-player if you just want to be left alone. Sadly, there is no local co-op. 

Is Dead Island perfect? No. Far from it. As much as I lauded it, Dead Island is rough around the edges and that's sure to turn a lot of people off. First-person melee combat doesn't feel natural right away. Sometimes textures take their time loading in, I'd describe every cutscene as "stiff," and the visual flaws like hands going through doors and weird mini-game meters made me laugh. Still, presentation doesn't make a game, experiences do. And they are packed into Dead Island.
