I have seen many conflicting reviews for Dead Island.
I am a fan of this game, many parts of the game are fantastic though some parts do need a tweak. You can choose between four characters:
Sam B: He is the blunt weapons expert. He serves as the tank of the group. He is able to absorb a lot of damage whilst fighting off enemies. His fury skill is punching enemies with increased strength and knockback.
Xian Mei: She is the blade expert. The assassin of the group she can use edged weapons with amazing speed and stamina. Her fury skill enables her to attack enemies with a short knife in a fury of short stabs and slashes. She has the lowest health of all four which makes her the hardest one to use.
Logan Carter: This guy is the jack of all trades. He is a throwing weapons expert. His fury skill allows him to throw an infinite amount of knives at nearby enemies. Levelled up enough he can retrieve his throwing knives from enemies and make him more effective with blunt and edged weapons alike. He also gains a bonus from using alcohol.
Purna: She is the support specialist and a firearms expert. Her fury skill allows her to use a revolver with unlimited ammo. Whilst guns are scarce in DI, when you find one, Purna is amazing in her sharp shooting ability.
The game itself is split into acts. When proceeding to the last act, make sure you have done all you can in the other acts as you cannot return once you go to the prison. I enjoy the varying scenary throughout the game. The NPCs will have various sidequests such as retrieving herbs for medicine and canned food for survivors. Vendors are littered around so you can buy and sell items. The only quests that drove me mad were the escort quests. The NPCs were often glitchy and didn't follow or they just ran head on into hordes of zombies with nothing but a pipe to help them!! Terrible idea Deep Silver!!
Weapons were taken to a whole new level in this game. You can find blueprints for mods which you can then apply to weapons. Searching cupboards, boxes and everything else will give you items to help you make these mods. Vendors will also have several items available to buy such as batteries or bleach. There are various mods to apply. You can use batteries and wires to add an electrical charge to a blade or how about a mod for adding a flame to your sword? You will find it in DI. Some mods are acquired through side quests. Most mods however are littered about. Make sure to search everywhere.
The story was interesting, a mix of infected and humans to kill. Varied but got a bit predictable after awhile. However the story itself kept me entertained right to the end. It is how I imagine a apocalypse to be. Human against human aswell as against the infected!!
If you enjoy an immersive story with fun game play and a lot of fire blades then this is the game for you!!
