Dead Island is a modern-day first person action adventure game with focus on melee combat. It also introduces RPG elements into the mix with skill tree system and experience system. It offers lots of freedom in customizing weapons and then using them against undead in many ways.
It also has one of the unique stories in any zombie game – without spoiling anything, Dead Island sees you stranded on an Island full of undead and you have no idea what really happened.
Your only goal is to survive the undead with whatever means you can think of. All the mysteries will unfold as you progress through the game.
Dead Island promises of hours of entertainment and almost convinces us to go a step further and get all the achievements the game has to offer. In case, you are interested, these are the achievements:
