I must say, that I have been playing the new Dead Island game for the PS3 for 3 days now and below is my review:
I think this game’s gameplay is very easy. The flow is simple. Moving and fighting off the zombies is also a very simple task. So far, I only completed about 6% of the game (according to the game) and the story for it is pretty good.
You get immersed on a beautiful tropical resort island that gets infected by the zombie virus. This virus then turns everyone on the island into zombies and you and 3 other controllable characters are not affected by their bites. You do run across other survivors trying to survive and they in turn give you various missions (some needed to continued the story and some just to upgrade various weapons you get and experience.)
To me, this game is a lot like Grand Theft Auto on Crack with Zombies. There are parts where you can pick up abandon cars and driving around running over zombies who are eating other corpses. You can pick up a wide variety of weapons in the game just like Grand Theft Auto, but they do end up breaking on you after some time.
I feel this game is pretty challenging just for 1 person alone. The beauty of this though is that you can go online and join up with 3 other playable characters and they can help you complete missions and fight the zombie hordes with you.
From what I was told by Gamestop, your looking at at least 50 hours of gameplay. I think they are right. I think you can log in much more especially if you try and do all the side quests in this game.
My scoring system will work on this game reviews like any normal 5 star system will go, except I will use 5 Triforces to give a reference to my favorite game of all time Zelda.
So that being said, I give this game 4 out of 5 Triforces. It loses a star so far because I am not sold on the auto saving nature and it does have some glitches regarding freezing when your playing Co-Op.
