If you've been dreaming about paradise, we know a place where you can make those dreams come true--the Island of Banoi. Just off the coast of Papua New Guinea, located south of the Equator and just north of Australia. Until very recently much of the island was wild and primitive and totally untouched by the modern world. Even though the capital, Moresby, was founded by Australian settlers in 1895, many places deep in the interior still have never been seen by western eyes. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive.

This is Dead Island... a paradise to die for...

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 4 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 utilising found items as weapons for self-defence 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 splendour with diverse environments like lush forests and detailed city environments.

Review of Dead Island

A really fun game with friends, however there are a lot of bugs in it that can really affect the enjoyment.

Dead Island

I put off buying this over and over again after reading the poor reviews it received, on the one hand I'm glad I did, but I've been missing out on some quality online co-op playing since its release. This is one of those games that is flawed - there are a few graphical issues, you can't see when your friend has his torch on, your feet go through the base of cars when driving... you know, all very minor stuff if you compare it to the awfully buggy game it's supposedly meant to be. Put all that worry aside and enjoy the online co-op, spend a few hours running round the island with a friend, hacking, slashing, crushing and bashing zombies and you will soon forget about any minor bugs. It's a pure joy to play, fun is around every corner whether you're questing or not. Watching limbs fly and heads being caved in while only just fighting off the horde is incredibly enjoyable. The questing isn't revolutionary, it's the typical fetching quests, but just jump on in the game with a friend and you'll have an evening of utter hilarity. Well worth a purchase!

Dead Island

Dead Island is a great game, filled with lots of action!

Dead Island

This was the first I time placed an order on Zavvi, and I was very pleased with my experience. My husband used to play on the computer and wanted Dead Island for the Xbox 360, but in our town, I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm especially pleased with the price, and the delivery was quick, and of a good quality. I myself am not a player, so I can not judge the gameplay, but my husband said he could spend hours killing zombies on Dead Island. Brilliant game by the looks of it, and great service. Thanks Zavvi.

Zombie island

Dead Island has a hotel, resort, and a great surprise, zombies, zombies and more zombies. A paradise where you would like to be but it will be one of your nightmares.

all good

Dead Island is a beautiful game.

Very fun!

Game is very fun, and has a lot of side-missions that you can complete to extend his lifetime. There's also the option to play co-operative with up to 4 players. Even you can play cooperative over Xbox live! Nice graphics, nice audio, nice missions. And zombies!

Left4Dead + Fallout = Dead Island

Imagine the enemies and inevitable frantic combat of Left4Dead, but in Fallout or Skyrim you'd pretty much get Dead Island. When playing this with friends, it has those moments of hilarious panic you always experienced in L4D when the zombies swarm. It also has the inventory management of Skyrim which puts you in the dilemma of "do I pick this up or not?!". Sadly, this game does have a few bugs, but nothing that cripples the game (well, I haven't come across anything yet :-S). I've only been playing this for a week but I'm really enjoying it. It gets me thinking of what Bethesda could do with multi player in Skyrim as there are moments in Dead Island that makes you develop team tactics and use each members' skills effectively. I would recommend this game, and definitely play it with friends. It's a laugh.

awesome game

Great game, fast delivery, cheapest price best service

Excellent!

This RPG game is one of a kind. There's so many features in the game that make it the most realistic RPG horror you will ever play! You are in control of the game, you can create and destroy. Creation is the key in this game, you have to find lots of different bits and bobs around the map to make something lethal! For example: Let's say you found a stick and nails. You can put those together and create a mod called 'Nail Mod.' There's also a wide variety of weapons in the game. It ranges from a handgun to an assault rifle! You can absolutely destroy zombies if you're patient, creative and destructive. The other things I like about this game is you can play co-op over Xbox Live, PlayStation Network etc. This is really good as you can hook up with your friends and go on a mad killing spree together!
