Zombie Open World Game with B-Movie Taste
Just played Dead Island Definitve Edition and finished the campaign mode. I am gonna review it on the web but here random thought about it: The story line is basically about zombie outbreak in exotic island named Banoi Island where four immune survivor that consist of Kanye West, Sane Vaas Montenegro, Asian chick who know chemistry who work in the hotel as clerk but turns out she was a spy and last, that walking dead character who wields katana who were also ex-police are going to find a way to escape from the outbreak aftermath by doing errands for NPCs who are native people, good-samaritan, and that surprise ending character. Its open world game where it has graphic with photo-realistic but shamefully, the characters animation are so lame with great voice acting. Imagine NPC characters cant act and have weird emotion, its like you watch B Movies. The quest are kind of chore where you can find it in many open world games but the thing that differentiates this game than other how satisfying using throw-able weapon instead fires random gun in order to defeat hordes of zombie and enhance / upgrade the weapon by crafting by taking stuffs and looting dead people stuff. Story wise the game can be similar with many movies about zombie outbreak but this time happens in exotic island and you are as player is free to explore and have thrill in quite calm and relaxing stroll in killing zombies, finding various people and environment that consist of more than 10 chapters but somehow you can go back in forth between the area. The elements of RPG in leveling and unlocking new skills and abilities, four playable characters, looting and crafting system are the good thing about the game. This is kind of game where you can compare with Far Cry 3. while in Far Cry 3 you are stuck in island full of pirates and mercenaries while helping local people to free them. Dead Island gives you various zombies as something to fight against beside little bit of people to fight or to help. Players need to prepare for more time to finish the campaign if they want to max the character stats, where 24 hours of my life being has been stuck on Banoi Island with various its stunning and well made locations like its city, slums, and jungle. Rating : 8/10
Throwing stuffs into zombies here is fun thing to do while you get chores from B-tier animation actors to do this and that.

You play as one of four different characters with different skills and skill trees, and different intro videos. The worlds is half open, you can roam the world as you wish but you will have to go through the main story to progress to the next large open area The combat is largely melee focused, but you also have firearms and throwing weapons, bullets and guns are scares in the start of the game, but towards the end of the game they are much easier to find.
