Found 28th Nov 2011
Terror. Violence. Madness. Bedlam. A holiday paradise gone mad. A tropical island turns into total chaos after a mysterious zombie outbreak. Cut off from the rest of the world, the player's only chance to survive is to fight to the death and find a way to escape from the island.

Dead Island combines first-person action with a heavy focus on melee combat, character development and customization of a vast array of weapons. All of these gameplay features are presented in a dark story inspired by classic zombie movies with a gritty and engrossing campaign that can be played with up to four players in co-op mode.

Set in an open world tropical island, hordes of different festering zombies await players around every corner while they embark on a variety of thrilling missions through the holiday resort. With firearms and ammunition being scarce the player must rely on utilizing found items as weapons for self-defense and fight off zombie hordes in intense melee combat. A diverse range of items can be collected and will later serve to transform the player's ordinary makeshift weapons into serious instruments of destruction.

In addition to satisfying even the most bloodthirsty action fan's fantasy, Dead Island also features role-playing elements which allow the player to develop one of the game's unique character classes according to their preferences, all the while learning new skills and fresh tactics during their journey through the perilous environments of the island. What's more, anytime during a game up to four players can seamlessly join together and experience the intense combat and immersive story with cooperative gameplay.

With the all-new Chrome Engine 5 powering Dead Island, the game will use the latest installment of Techland's acclaimed proprietary game engine, allowing the player to experience the tropical island paradise in graphical splendor with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

Thanks

Just picked this up from gamestation using a code for this price so hot from me

A glitchy and buggy game (the worst is the voice acting and facial animation) - but hell it's so much fun you can over look it!

Most games aren't going to be £9.99 after christmas. Don't be a fool.

Apart from getting the first 4 series of Lost for £4 each last year, todays are probably the best Mega Monday deals I've seen!

Wanted so much to love this but Soul destroyingly badly made engine and uber frustrating game even after patches, but 17.99 is a fair price.....heat up

I paid £30 on a pre-order for this as the trailer was amazing. I wish I hadn't bothered. My advice to anyone is wait until it's under a tenner.

The multiplayer is frustrating and the game is very repetitive. Lacking massive waves of zombies that you get in Dead Rising. It's fun, but it's massively flawed.

Ditto, seems a good game beneath all the glitches & wotnot for zombie apocolypse gamers

I've got a Bloodbath Arena code (xbox) from when I pre-ordered this if anyone wants it? It came after I traded the game in so not used it at all.

Dont think standard mate, when i bought the spesh edish it came with it, along with the ripper weapon......but as i said, dont think the standard.

playing this at the moment and if you ignore the glitcheyness its a stonkingly good bit of fun,
My recommendation is to take the asian chick as she is obscenely powerful with knives and fast!

I just wish you could pick up chairs to batter zombies with

Excellent game and I highly recommend but do bear in mind that it is very, very violent.
So I guess it depends on how old your son is or wether you feel your 10 year old is a budding Sociopath.

Ordered and heat added

Great ordered thanks x

Hot from me needed 3, so saved a bomb......heat added thanx:)

I was asked for this by my 11 year old cousin for his Christmas. His parents ok'd it but it sounds a bit violent?

Some deal but can anyone tell me if this really is a bad game violence wise or fake violent?

Been waiting for this to drop, outstanding deal. Ordered!

It is all zombie violence, but it is some of the most brutal ingame violence I have seen. You can break their individual limbs for extra points, just as an example.

None of it is shocking, just the detail it goes into may not be suitable for an 11 year old.

If his parents ok'd it then they need to have a word with themselves. It's rated 18 with good reason!!

Fun but frustrating.

The 2nd act in the city area is a complete chore, much like Mexico in RDR.
But after that, it becomes fun again

Gone up in price now to £39.99
