Last Sunday I got a good session in for Dead Island. I was amazed as I ventured out even more to explore the island and found some really tough enemies along the way. First one being the thug zombie. This guy is like a zombie on steriods that knocks you off your feet if you get too close to them and they hit you. I find myself not going at him dead on like I would with other zombies. I think this makes the game a little bit more interesting since now there are different stradegies to take when fighting each kind of zombies you encounter. Sometimes it best to look around in the environment for something to take them down. Hint most of the time you can find a propane tank to throw and them and explode with a weapon. Keep your weapons maxed out on durability and streght and it will help you out in the long run. I have only managed to build a couple of items using the work bench. Which works pretty similar to dead rising 2 where you gather items to build a better weapon to bring down the pain on the zombie. The only grip i have is the playable character. I think the promo for this game made us believe there was a sense of loss and tradedy but instead give you 4 playable characters with shady backgrounds that you can not sympathize with. Example of a character would be main character of red dead redemption. However I still like where the creator were going with this in terms of gameplay and an open world environment with tons of side missions and rpg style game play. Still will be playing this well into October.

Ahh, you're right. I am currently playing Purma but I have Xian started in case I ever manage to find out how to play online co-op. I know that you don't want to use your offline game character as online co-op will mess us your story line.

Did you add me so we can co-op sometime? Or give me your gamertag and I'll add you.

Okay. Xian is a sharp weapon expert and Logan is a throwing knives expert.

You might be right. Well I guess I have been using her wrong then.

I thought the football player was the knives expert. Purma is guns, the other girl is martial arts, the rap star is the tank.

I played this game over the weekend and I have to admit this is best zombie game I have played in a long time. First person perspective really gives it that creepy element to it. And I have to admit when I walk into an area and that zombie pops out of the corner I am like WTF! I have started implementing my double tap method on anything I see on the floor. Zombies tend to pretend to be dead and pop up behind you when you pass them by. I know this has saved me plenty of times. So in this game you play one of 4 different people. A gun expert, knives expert, Blunt object expert, and Im not too sure what the football star player is. Plays like an RPG type game where you level up the more XP points you get. THere are tons of side missions in this game that keep you playing for longs period of time and the open world environment gives it a good feel instead of being lead down a particular path like Left for dead. There are driveable vehicles and crazy people that try to kill you. I think this game will hold me over till October when I get my hands on Batman.

Oh yeah, if anyone does want to add me as a friend so we can play co-op (since it seems I can only play with friends at this time) you can add me. My usertag is Moon Opal.

I have it and I must admit, I'm really disappointed that you can't play off-line co-op at home (it only allows system link, but we have just the one xbox). I haven't even managed to play online co-op. My son was able to play by joining a friend's game, but we haven't found a way to join a quick match. Is there a certain level you have to be to play quick match?

This really makes me feel dissatisfied with the game, because I don't like being a solitary zombie hunter. I like teams.

P.S.
The game is pretty creepy sometimes because you can hear the zombies around you and sometimes they just jump out of nowhere, it seems, and makes me jump, lol.

Hmm. I dont think that it does support local co-op but I will look into it.

Its looking like a great game. Having the RPG element of leveling up and stamina because it makes a zombie invasion more realitstic unlike left for dead where you can find guns everywhere. Lol. Limited guns and more up close and personal incounters.

Yeah, our work computers block everything with their Barracuda program. I didn't know this was coming out so soon, I was hoping it would be a 2012 game. I picked up two extra shifts so I could pay for this and Rise of Nightmares upfront, so I'm not caught off guard when it gets here.

I wish I could see these here at work! My company blocked just about everything a few weeks ago and now I can't check these out during the day....and when I get home I do homework and take care of my Farmville farms! LOL
