I'd slaughter every zombie I saw, but by the time I got to the city and found tight alleyways overrun with monsters, I began to just run from objective to objective. No longer was I playing a game -- I was focusing on survival as if I were the one running from Point A to Point B.
@varun: Did you get the game from there? How much did it cost you in INR? The pre-order discount is 15% as per the site, not 25%.
Eh..so , is this game worth getting or not?
I agree with skud, its more like dead rising.
I hate saying that a game is a cross between game X and game Y, but writing this review is keeping me from Dead Island, so I’m going to do it anyway. I'd have to say the game reminds me of Borderlands mixed with your bloodiest zombie wet dreams and then infused with a healthy dose of first person, panicked, flailing, melee combat. There’s also hints of Fallout 3 in the game as well, both in terms of the RPG elements and the ridiculously gory violence. Top that all off with some gratuitous potty mouths and you’ve got a recipe for one Dead Island and a very Mature rating.
Slow for you but not for others. There are plenty of RPG games like these which are slow but thats how you enjoy the game. Rushing will only spoil it.
