Manufacturer's Description

If you've been dreaming about paradise, we know a place where you can make those dreams come true--the Island of Banoi. Just off the coast of Papua New Guinea, located south of the Equator and just north of Australia.

The Island of Banoi
The Island of Banoi
Dead Island
Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat
The Island of Banoi
Hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner
 Dead Island
Dead Island is inspired by classic zombie movies

A paradise to die for

Until very recently much of the island was wild and primitive and totally untouched by the modern world. Even though the capital, Moresby, was founded by Australian settlers in 1895, many places deep in the interior still have never been seen by western eyes.

As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive.

This is Dead Island... a paradise to die for.

Terror. Violence. Madness.

Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player’s only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customisation of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilising found items as weapons for self-defence and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player’s ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan’s fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game’s unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What’s more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.

With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland’s acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendour with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why i almost missed this game 7 May 2012
By R.C.
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I almost didn't buy this game because i'm a fool that sometimes believes in other people bad reviews, that's why! Bought it for 19 pounds here at amazon.uk and i'm very happy with this purchase. I would have paid paid the full price for it and i would have bought it day one only if i paid less attention to others. I will not review it; it's a fps with rpg elements in an open world with lot's of quests and side quests.Last time i was so delighted with a game in this generation, it was with the first uncharted (with a campaign). It's not about inovation or about some game flaws (tell me a game without flaws); it's about fun and this game is all about it. If you like zombies, gore, fps, this game is for you! Well, i have to go kill some more zombies...

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a go, you won't be dissapionted 21 Jun 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a little late in the day playing this game and almost didn't bother. I picked it up nice and cheap but after a few hours playing time I would have paid the full release price.

If you like simple fairly easy missions with easy to follow maps a long with smashing the hell out of Zombies then you will love it. Each mission is different and you will explore the whole Island.

It can get a little bit frustrating when the Zombies keep re-spawning but after a while your weapons are so good that you simply want to chop their heads off with all your different array of weapons! There are many many side missions that keep the game interesting along the way.

As you get further into the game the Zombies get more mutated and harder to kill but hey it's all part of the fun. It's a simple game and does make you jump out of your seat a few times or maybe it's just me being a wossy. It's a fun game with a few glitches, like all of the characters appearing in the cut scenes although you're the only character in the game. Enjoy the game but just don't expect to much.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never write reviews but felt compelled to in the case of this game as the title has received such mixed reviews. Be in no doubt that this game is brilliant! If you're into the whole Call of Duty Black Ops style zombie action game then this may not be your cup of tea. The developers have clearly tried to make this title as true to life as possible (well as real to life as you can for a zombie game) i.e what would you do to survive if you really were in this situation? There wouldn't be 101 different types of gun lying round every corner. You would have to think on your feet, look for any weapon you could, and not run head long into fighting situations without thinking first. That is where the genius lies in this game. You actually feel on edge whilst playing. You feel that you are fighting for your life and start to think accordingly. After playing this game for a few hours all this became apparent as I realised I had been taking time to park my vehicle in a position for a quick escape when stopping to look in buildings etc.

I am a massive zombie genre fan. George Romero is a legend and I've always preferred his old school style of filming that aims for atmosphere over special effects and head shots. If, like me, you love zombie films for the sense of hopelessness and atmosphere they evoke then this is the game you've been waiting for. If you just like to run around blowing stuff up you might get bored. Therein lies the reason for the mixed reviews.

Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
really loving this game not quite completed it yet about 89% through but have already clocked up over 70 hours playtime because its such fun to roam around killing zombies and the graphics look great especially the city, yes it has a few bugs but what game these days doesn't have no idea about online play as that's never interested me but for its price its a great solo game and one i will almost certainly come back to after completing.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 16 May 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I nearly did't get this game because of the bad reviews but im glad i did. dead island is amazingly addictive fun and maybe its just me but it gets quite scary at points. it reminds me a little bit like a res game with the different mutations of zombies. i had to download a patch as soon as i put the disk in so im guessing thats why i havent experienced any glitches that people were reporting.

try it for yourself im sure you will love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Game opinions and ratings 25 April 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After reading many mixed reviews I took a chance on this game, something's I wondered about the game weren't answered in anyone else reviews.

This game is very fun to play so long as you have someone to play it with. I am not too keen on the game playing it alone as the amount of zombies you go against do not change. As a solo player you would expect less enemies in comparison to playing with more people, however this is not the case. You will have to adjust to getting killed. However still a fun game even as a solo!

The game as a co-op is probably my favourite game. Those that are concerned about not having a friend to play with you can connect with people, in the setting menu you can have up to three people connect apart from you (four in total) However if choosing to join someone you must have completed the prologue which must be done as a solo player. You will know the prologue is over when you kill your first set of zombies and the screen says "Act 1" . When able to join others pick players with the same chapter. When varying in chapters some progress will not be saved. If at the same chapter get about, experiment and slaughter and search for fun items. Rewards will be gained through playing after an hour you will feel at home.

Ratings
--------
* Gameplay Storyline - Strange story, often confusing but if mixing in with little side quests it doesn't matter, all you want to do is slice up zombies ---- 7.5/10
* Fun Factor - As a solo 7/10 --- as a co-op 9.5/10
* Durability and length - Not short however not to long if you do the side quest this will keep you entertained for ages.
