Has anyone played this? I picked it up on PC as it looked good with a Far Cry look to it, and I'm really impressed and though it's older it's what The Walking Dead Survival Instincts should of been.

Great combat system with a good weapon upgrade and skill system big colourful island and the Walkers are realistic and don't make out with the scenery some of them run at you from a far distance and all you can hear is the foot steps thudding faster and louder as they get closer without you knowing where they are it has you looking around in a panic, and it looks dam nice here on a decent PC if that's how you roll

If you played Survival Instincts and you most likely was disappointed with it you got to check this out.

Found it quite boring and rushed through it, but then again I was playing alone. One of the things that annoyed me was the lack of bullets.

No bullets? that's because it's not that kind of game you didn't buy it thinking so did you?

I knew what the game was, I just expected a few more bullets! In the same way I knew what type of game condemned was, but I was happy with the amount of gunplay in that game.

One of the main reasons I loved Dead Island was because there was hardly any guns to use. You had to make do and survive with whatever you could find, and that made the game that bit more exciting.

Loved this game, played it on PS3. It wasn't too difficult (although some parts/missions are frustrating) but I completed it within a week. Good to play again too.

I hate The Butchers, they made me nervous!!

Who do you Voodoo bitch?

I picked up the GOTY version in sale on the PS Store and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm currently playing through Ryder White's DLC and that has lots of guns as well as explaining a lot of the back story.

I would buy Dead Island Riptide on launch day but I'm sure there will be several DLC packs so I'll wait for a complete version.

It's a brilliant game and pretty much loved every minute of it. Well hyped for Riptide.

Still enjoying it, I've just finished the hospital part where I must grab a ambulance.

Any tips for the big walkers? I'm getting into some really long battles with them and sometimes dying two or three times as my weapons start to break

no if you want to do them all do it before you finish.

I didn't like the look of dead island. After what everyone has said about it I think I may have missed out on a fun game.
Will need to have played the first to understand the second or is the story not that difficult to follow?

Far Cry 3 with Zombies it really is a good game huge world to as it goes, it feels like lots of games combined together.

The levelling up in Dead Island is somewhat pointless as the zombies equally get stronger with you.

I kinda enjoyed the original on the pc, the whole stamina system nearly ruined it for at times. I might just wait for it to be on sale on steam

There is an option to turn this off.

I've reached the second island and dam it's fricken hard at one point it took me about half an hour to get back to the church after finishing a quest, I spend a lot time running around and jumping on car roofs to pick off the walkers

If this carries on I might turn off the function where zombies level with you because it's insane has anyone tried that is it to easy?
