Dead Island is a yet another zombie game. A great, action-packed first person perspective survival horror, it lets the player choose among four characters imprisoned on a zombified island. Polish studio Techland created a violent game full of spectacular encounters with zombies seen as if through your own eyes. The four characters mentioned above are highly differentiated. We can choose amongst persons of both sexes and various backgrounds. They also possess different skillsets which strongly affect the gameplay later on.
The story tells us about a beautiful exotic island, a holiday resort, that suddenly got invaded by zombies. Why? No one knows, but what everyone does know is that they have to survive, escape, and maybe along the way find out why everything went crazy. Zombies are not the only kind of enemy. As during every extreme situation, there are also people who want to use the circumstances and won’t stop at anything. Being ordinary civilians, our characters do not have a lot of firing weapons. They will mostly use regular things, turning them into deadly weapons. We begin with an oar, later on finding things like knives and hatchets and trying to combine them with other objects in order to take advantage of the crafting system. The story leads the characters into many interesting places, where the contrast between beautiful sights and dead bodies is impossibly striking.
They visit luxurious hotels, tropical forests and beaches as from paradise. The game lets us take part in 150 quests received from various NPCs with whom we can interact. One of the most fun parts of Dead Island is cooperation. With four interesting and useful characters, it still is easy to find someone to play with you over the internet. Splashing zombie brains around is the best in company! Dead Island offers classic multiplayer modes, too, but they are less populated than good old cooperation.
