Pretty scary game? Like Dead Space?


There is absolutely nothing scary in Dead Island unless you found Left for Dead scary.

I'm playing it now... fun game. It's a little janky and the characters suck, but the combat is fun and I like the setting. Well worth $19.99.


Really? So the used versions are 18?

I think this game plays better as a lone survivor, but if you can find 3 other people to play with, then $20 is definitely worth it. I might just get it if others are willing to coop.

Wonder if they fixed the weird bugs from launch. Either way, I'd go PC since I have a gaming one.

These "GOTY" designations are so fishy, they should be called "GHOTI" editions:

Good game for co-op. I wouldn't buy it if you aren't gonna play co-op.

Worth $20 for sure, especially if you can talk some of your friends into picking it up too.

Is the PS3 version still plagued with screen-tearing?

I heard it was pretty bad looking on the PS3.

When I played the multiplayer a couple of months ago, it never froze up for me, although I only did Act 1 in co-op. Also, IATCG has a terrible Internet connection.

I picked it up for 360, figured for $20 it was worth fucking up some zombies.

I'll gladly play co-op with anyone here on 360, just add my gamertag and send me a message saying you're a CAG'er

This game is a total buy at the price! Has some bugs and quirkiness to the characters, and piles on the cheese in classic B-Movie fashion, but that was part of the charm. Its literally like Fallout with a little bit of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay (control wise) with an awesome setting and tons of zombie/horror movie references! Great stuff for horror fans.

As long as you use the character abilities and weapon specialties from the jump the game is a blast. I had a friend who said it was too hard but he had the black dude, who specializes in melee and heavy weapons, using knives and such. Once he figured that out he hasnt put the game down. I played through it twice, and this was with a heavy backlog! I never do that. This was my sleeper hit of the year. Pretty awesome zombie apocalypse simulator IMO.

This game is tons of fun in co-op. It plays a lot like Borderlands from my experience. In addition, the DLC is preloaded on the disk, but Ryder White is a singleplayer only DLC. I managed to find a used copy at GS and bought it with a B2G1 coupon.

It's not scary, although there have been times where I get so creeped out from the atmosphere that I stopped playing. I would highly recommend this game if you can find a group of people to play with.

This game definitely deserves the "Game of the year" title for it's 2 player co op. Not single, not 4 --> 2 player co op :)) The Major Whyte DLC kinda ticked me off that you can only play single player and the other really has no replay value because I'm burned out on survival wave kind of game modes.. Definitely worth 20$ :))

Debated this one for quite a few days only because I already have a decent size backlog and I know this fall is bringing even more new games I'm going to be playing, but after all that thought I ended up purchasing a copy for the xbox 360. I had an older promo code still sitting around too, so I only ended up paying $9.99... Good deal to me!
