dead island


i finally finished the game. it is much better than i previously thought. the only real problem i've found is the undead called an "infected". these are the rage zombies from 28 day later. now, in groups of 2 or 3 they arent to difficult to stop, just thrust kick them back to stun them then bring whichever weapon you have down onto their head. the problem is that in act 2 they show up in groups of about 5. if you miss just one of them with a thrust kick they somehow swing their arms and run through you doing massive damage. this leads to you being surrounded and unable to attack as each hit from them causes your character to stumble. so if you have 5 different people hitting you with 2 arms that leaves no time to counter attack. really that is the only gripe i have with this game, because as long as you arent in this one area the game is very smooth. the game is very similar to borderlands. you have 3 skill trees you get to level up. each character is a specialist in certain weapons and has a special skill. as of right now Ive only played as Sam B, who is a blunt weapons specialist.

basically i spent the game using maces and bats and crowbars and hammers to smash every undead S.O.B into dust. his special skill is similar to bricks in borderlands. he goes into melee form and a special set of brass knuckles appear allowing him to bulldoze through the biggest of freaks.as you level up the enemies level to equal your scale and the weapons also level up. there are 5 level of weapon rarity. the names of the weapons change colors to represent how rare the weapons is, much like borderlands. white is the most common, followed by green, then blue, then purple, and finally orange. i highly recommend this to borderlands fans

  1. I wish I had one of the current consoles to play this game as it really does look amazing.

  2. I've had my eye on this one, I still haven't played CoD Black Ops yet which is next in line when I finally put DiRT 3 down.
