The game is in first person and is an RPG that allows your character to level up and choose perks to make your character unique and strong. To start off, you get to choose between 4 characters from a soccer star to an Asian hotel clerk, they all specialize in something such as a melee pro or a gun fighter. Every time your character levels up, you get to choose a perk and you can use your perks to specialize in fury, combat or survival. If you choose the combat tree, you can make your kicks very deadly.

The best thing about Dead Island, it offers gruesome zombie pounding, you can smash zombies heads with your fists and give a few flying kicks to send them into the air. The amounts of weapons you get are plentiful though majorities are melee weapons from paddling sticks to homemade machetes, they also deteriorate pretty fast but no worries, you can choose a perk to help the deterioration slow down by up to 15%. There is also a weapon customization system which you can give fire or electric damage to your melee weapons. I was expecting to find a pistol in the beginning of the game but sadly it is as hard as finding a needle in a haystack to find a handgun, let me say again, to find a handgun not a machine gun or AK, a handgun.

Fighting zombies can get difficult especially if you fighting them in groups. You get a few types of zombies from thugs to walkers, though be warned of the runners, they run straight into your face that make you hit that shift button so quick and get a fright while doing so. Thugs on the other hand are these tough guy zombies, who you can hear them scream in a distance, “WTF was that?” would be your first reaction.
Dead Island will keep you busy for awhile. There are dozens of side quests to do and when you complete a quest you get rewarded though the best rewards are when you explore and best is to do it in a car, since you can find lots of money, items and weapons that will aid you in the game. You can also create weapons like a baseball bat with spikes and so on. Even though you get all these cool weapons and perks, don’t be thinking you can run into an area like Rambo and start killing off multiple zombies because honestly you cannot, you will die at least 3 times while playing Dead Island. The game isn’t extremely difficult but you do get challenging parts, it makes you focus on survival.

The awesome thing about Dead Island is that 3 of your friends can join you in decapitating them zombie bastards as it offers a 4 player co-op. So when you trying to do those challenging parts, you can always ask a friend to aid you in battle.
The story isn’t something out of a horror movie and it isn’t very entertaining either. The story unfolds as you progress but is very bland. You’re on a island that gets infected with a disease and you out of 4 characters can resist the infection, so you have to be the hero and fight your way to save the people and find out how the infection happened.
The graphics aren’t comparable to Battlefield 3 but they are good and the way zombies react to the environment is realistic. There were a few bugs here and there where zombies would pop out a wall but the game is still visually good and playable.

Playing in first person while killing off zombies that make sounds you have never heard before and trying to survive on an island full of zombies gives the player a vivid experience but you won’t be playing it for days.
