I played the demo that I downloaded off Live. I really liked it but it seems I'm in the minority on this one. It would probably appeal to older gamers who were into Diablo and older RPG's. I REALLY want to buy it but I'm going to wait for it to be $20 or less. I predict it will be there very soon.

Not sure if you guys even know but this game is hardly worth 4.99 let alone 44.99. Have you guys actually played it? It feels like a pre-alpha build. Tons of glitches and bugs. Extremely easy. Characters suck. Oh yeah and you are constantly repairing weapons by putting them on a table and paying the table money. Yes that's right, you give money to an inanimate object to magically repair your items. Brilliant.


ya, lol i found that funny. I watched a lets play and the guys were joking wondering why they cant just rub money on their weapons to fix them in field... how come they needed the workbench to do that =P

Like i said, this isn't even remotely what i expected gameplay wise. Nevermind all the massive bugs on top of that. I actually just found the lens of truth comparison after reading this thread and they have a hilarious line in it:
"On the performance side of things, both versions fared quite poorly. Still when you are dealing with two bowls of crap where the only difference is the stench, there is usually one that smells worse"

heh.

As to people who say they cant see any PS3 screen tearing.. i gotta ask: Are you kidding? Just lookit this video:


even with its low video quality you simply cant miss it. It tops 20% at some times, and is pretty much constant the whole way throughout

i can wait. kenshindono what do you think is this generation's survival horror? deadspace?
just curious as resident evil surely isn't.


This generation doesn't have any survival horror. To me survival horror means a game that is actually kinda frightening and has serious SURVIVAL elements. I.e. a constant sense of dread and worrying about what the hells around the next corner to rip your face off. Ammo and resource conservation and the like. Thats what i thought this game was gonna be like. Something like The Walking Dead the video game. Instead we get Oblivion the videogame with absurdly fast cartoonish weapon degredation, rubbing money on yoru weapons to repair them, and no real death penalty or sense of dread.. yay. Nope, cant think of any games this generation that are real survival horror games.

I won bite this time, this game is a left 4 dead & dead rising wannabe. It has a lot of bugs, i dont think its even worth 29.99. I will probably get it when it gets <20, and only if they release a patch


No offense, but dead island plays absolutely nothing like l4d series and has a very different setup than dead rising (I own and played many hours into all 3). I guess they are related in such at term that they all focus on zombies being the enemies but that is where the comparison stops. Game came out buggy at release sure, but was quickly fixed with various patches by the end of the week. Game works flawlessly and have not encountered any game breaking bugs both online or offline (im in mid-Act 3 of 4 and have done all main and side quests up to that point).

I encourage you to at least check the game out again and get a better view of it at the very least to understand what the game is really about. Not trying to be an ass or a fanboy about it, just think you are truly missing out on a huge success.

I'm thinking the same, and could even see this being $14.99 or less by Black Friday. You have to look at supply and demand, and with COD MW3, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, etc. coming out, the retailers will be looking to clear their inventories of these titles. It's for this very reason I think Dead Island will be $29.99 or less soon, and maybe $19.99 during Amazon's Black Friday Deals.

With credit I could get it for $15. I'm going to pass anyway, got way to many games of my plate. If this was June or something I would have bitten.


My dad always taught me to consider gift cards/store credit as you would money. Even if you came about that credit for free it's still money. It's not a discount code or a coupon so don't treat it like it is one. It's obviously up to you what you do with your own money but your post made me remember that.


As for the argument of Dead Island. Although the game is buggy as shit and not worth the price it is now I really enjoyed it for what it was. Sure they should have continued developing it and it really does feel like they released an unfinished alpha of the game but it was still fun when I played it. With that said I would wait until Black Friday if I were to buy it (I rented it from Redbox).

err ya if they have a huge stock of them. The problem with that is that Dead Island sold very well. I happened to have been in a lot of gamestops hunting for a few old psp games and there were a lot of people coming to get them and they were sold out. I noticed Target was out and newegg was out too for a while. I'm sure it will drop by black friday but its not like tis gonna be a game thats just clogging up inventory

I heard the ps3 version had a game save glitch, has that been fixed?

It is still broken and the 360 version is worse everyone i know in real life and on xbox live had there saves corrupted at least once. There used to be 30 people on my friends list playing this but only 1-2 play it now cause of the save glitch and gears 3 being out.

The game is one of the best co op games i played to date and huge replay if you like farming weapons and collecting all the blue print mods and what not.

They say they will be fixing all systems soon but they said this about the last update for 360 which made whoever did not get a save corrupt get it when the patch came out for 360. I lost a char i played 90 or so hours with. I just backup my save every few hours to my internal memory unit now.

The ps3 i hear it just does not save online co op mode and there is a ghetto way to rig it so it saves. You could play single player mode and works fine i hear.

The company tweeted back to people that had the save corruption to delete there newest save and load the backup one. It makes me wonder if they have a clue what they are doing. The game does not save like fallout does it auto saves but the guy tweeting on there page thinks otherwise. There is another omg moment as well but forgot what it was and where.

Final verdict the game is so good it is worth having for when they fix it or just deal with the ps3 trick to get it to save or 360 method of always backing up the save. The game is worth the hassle and bummed they pushed back the release date of blood bath arena dlc which is why i preordered this game omg!

you know this save glitch has me wondering.. what happens if you go to play this game like 5-10 years down the road when xbox lives not around to patch anymore? You will have lost your patch since the 360 doesn't keep them on the HD. Being unable to update you will either not be able to load your saves, or have to start all over and get them corrupted again.

Shit like that is why I find this current day 1 patch need most games have totally inexcusable.

Hah, yeah.

"This game is terrible and has bugs. But if it hits $20, I'll buy it."

It's a fun game. Granted, I have the PC version, so there are no video issues and it runs at 60fps, but I've yet to encounter a bug that I recall. And I've sunk 35 hours or so into it.

If I had to liken it to anything, I would call it more of a action-y Fallout 3 with a weaker storyline/atmosphere, but the non-VATS combat doesn't suck - it's quite fun, in fact. I'm really not seeing where these comparisons to some of these other games are coming from just because there are zombies.

I've even read posts complaining about the vehicles driving poorly, and I found them very responsive and easy to control compared to most games.

I picked it up for $37.50 from a buddy on a Steam 4 pack, and it was worth the price. And it is very rare for me to spend that much money on any game.

Must...wait...for...bigger price drop...

GAH! I want this game so bad!


for what it's worth, I rented Dead Island (360) and think that game is well worth the $60 full price. But I just bought Gears of War 3 at full price and don't think it's worth anything over $40.

I have also beat 75% of the main storyline and I still would pay $46 thru amazon for this game. To me this game reminds me alot of oblivion, just so much to do in the game, sidequests, screwing around, loot / sell system.

I would so be up for a Gears of War 3 for Dead Island trade?

PS3 version has HORRIBLE screen tearing. Some of the worst ive ever seen, its unbelivable really. The save glitch is both versions as far as i know.

Honestly im waiting for this game to hit <30 bucks. Its not at all what i expected it was gonna be, its bacially just an action game, no real survival horror involved. And the weapon degredation is ridiculously fast.

Biggest issue though is how buggy it is. It seriously needed a lot more playtesting

It's not just on PS3; PC has no v-sync without manual editing and it's fucking awful. Even the intro movie tears like crazy and that's a .wmv file. The game is fun if you have friends to play with, but overall it's a watered down Borderlands clone with zombies. It gets old fast because the game has no bosses per se and lack of challenge factor just puts you to sleep. All my friends have already quit playing, due to bugs and lack of replay value. I would seriously save your money until it's $20 or less, because I can't see supporting shit devs like that.

I have also beat 75% of the main storyline and I still would pay $46 thru amazon for this game. To me this game reminds me alot of oblivion, just so much to do in the game, sidequests, screwing around, loot / sell system.

Oblivion, now that's a laugh. I put 40 hours into DI and completed the main story and ALL sidequests, collected ALL mods, got 75% of the collectible items without a guide, and finished the game at level 39. What's left to do? New game+ to grind to level 50. This game has three main map areas, each themed, and are each roughly the size of the main capitol in Oblivion. Yes it has 'dungeons' (and the final area of the game qualifies as this), but you can count how many on two hands.

Seriously, that comment has to be a joke.

Your post is the definition of what it is to be a CAG. Price combined with the intangible "the game is worth...to me" is relative to the person and their budget.

For example, I'm on a tight budget at the moment and wanted a game that I could enjoy for the next 2 months. My decision came down to Gears 3 vs. Dead Island. I'm not a Gears fan, but I read, watched, and heard how great the game played. I've heard, read, and watched nothing but mediocrity from Dead Island. So in the end my $60 went to Gears 3. Why? Because it was the best value for my money. Does that mean Dead Island is not worth my time or money? No. Does it mean Dead Island is a terrible game and Gears 3 is a great game? No. It means that, relatively speaking, my $60 was better spent on a game that a majority of my friends and I will play for 2 months nonstop, in addition to a great single player campaign, and overall polish.

The majority of people here will probably get Dead Island when the price is right for them because, in the end, we're all gamers. The price of a game that is reasonable for one person does not reflect the overall quality, or enjoyment, of the game.

you'll be able to find the patch online and save it to a flash drive or something and then transfer that onto your xbox360. Xbox live going down is not an issue in terms of patches

I had fun with dead island for about 3-4 hours after that it just got kinda old for me. My biggest gripe is having to repair your weapons so goddamn often. Even after fully upgrading the fucking things they still breakdown just as fast as any other weapons.

I would advise you guys to rent the game first, I noticed when people see a zombie game that doesn't get completely smashed by critics they seem to wet their pants with joy (like myself), but after actually playing Dead Island, if I had known I was getting an unpolished game that just seems average I would have held out a few months longer, again if you're the kind a guy who can just mindlessly hack and slash at things (like Dynasty Warriors) and still like it then I guess this would be for you but you need to know this game is just a first person hack and slash with zombies in it, there is no intriguing story, you won't like any of the characters, and if the trailer is what sold you then this game will surely disappoint you.
