well we can't really play together, i personally want to try before i buy...
and it's not worth the pricetag it currently has... it's interesting, but slow and repetitive...
the NPCs are more of a drag to handle than anything else, i feel like the very sparse story is being dragged on forever for no good reason, and at every corner you need something extra to advance...

well after playing it some more, it's a little more interesting...
you get more variety in weapons over time... but the guy with the blunt weapons really get an easy life in the beginning and if you take a ranged character, it takes a LONG time until you get your first firearm...

that trailer was nice... but it's nothing from the real game... well the running away part is true...
no kid zombies in the game, must not get a bad rating because for that...
no destruction apart from the exploding barrels...
running away form zombies? sure, killing them all one by one is boring.... so run!

i got some guns now, i can shoot a bit... it's barely decent as a FPS... bullets are pretty much only useful against people shooting at you...

the biggest 2 flaws:
1- HUGE gaps in the story, it barely makes sense after a while
2- SLOW everything! melee is decent, but you get pwned easily

throwing is cool but barely do damage and then you can't kick enemies otherwise you stop

attacking and "pick up" that weapon back from his body attacking you

shooting is slow because 5 bullets will kill you and you always have to wait for them to pop out of their cover while you have none

healing is slow because it takes forever to eat heal 1 HP bar, a medium health pack heals 2 bars! a BIG health pack heals 4! well i got 8 health bars, it's NOT ENOUGH!

also the upgrade system vs finding better stuff is kinda flawed, the moment you upgrade your weapon to the max and get a nice effect on it, you find a new weapon that does more damage than with what you just upgraded... and the enemies still take the same number of hits to kill since they level up with you....

so yeah... making the game more fast-paced would have improved it a LOT!

He's criticizing the game and giving us his opinion.

I'm kinda sure he doesn't expect the Dead Island Dev team to visit this page and read his critique lol.

well it seems that one is fail from the developer, it seems that if you change one key binding, it will still be there... i changed my "use" key to "E" and my kick to "F"
therefore when i press "F" it still tries to "use" while kicking...

FAIL!

the fix is to extract a file from the game, edit it and put it in the directory...

I don't know about this game, but most games have key binding and other functions in a notepad. As i'm using autocad I know there exists "custom keys" and "default keys". For autocad I can remove some default shortcuts to allow usage of my custom ones, not sure if dead island's would be locked or even exist. One last thing, It's hard to see what I'm typing before i post it.

yes, you can edit the key bindings, but they are hardcoded in the game, so when I try to kick a zombie that has a knife in his body, it takes back the knife instead of kicking him because the "action" key has priority over the "i don't want to die so i'm kicking those guys to keep them at a distance" key

the fury mode for the girl with the slashing weapon is to get an uber weapon and slice zombies in one hit... it's nice, but not always needed....

haven't tried the other 3 characters..

Much more fun with xbox 360 controller (salvaged from my xbox that got destroyed unknown reason) . . . but still the characters are kinda same , have played em all , but still liking blunt weapon guy most. they could have atleast done new cinematics to game when playing alone >_> and true the guns are kinda useless unless your killing bandits. . . .. .... ....
truth saying i was kinda disapointed to it, but since im achiement whore and like to play my all games to end. ..
but to fury:
-The guy with speciality with throwing: has it as killing zombies with explosive knifes
-Blunt weapong guy; uses fists!
-as misho mentioned:
Quote :

and the weapon girl: just haves unlimited ammo?
what ONLY comes to use nearly end games. . .

You could have just shrunk the paint background so it's just around what you wanted to be viewed. Instead of having a itty bitty picture on a giant white background....unless that's the look you're going for.

I didn't say I was any better...I can't even draw non-crooked stick figures, man. I just know this from using it on my screen shots because it is so much easier to paste it on there. besides it would take time out of DotD and watching anime while I wait for people to log on.

I was also wondering who else was up in the middle of the night in the middle of the week...but I guess for you, the sun is out burning retinas.
