    I think you also need to remember that the game is still in its beginning stages...

    First, the graphics suck because well, is being play on an xbox... and the combat is kinda chunky because is not finish.... This game is all about exploring and what not...

    and all those people that want a realistic zombie game..... just read what you just wrote... a realistic zombie game...

    once you add zombie into a game it no longer becomes realistic............

    As my only comment is, their doesn't seem to be a lot of zombies... i mean 6 or 4 each time to me is nothing... and please don't make the chick wear high heels while she is fighting, unless the heels for some reason does extra damage.

    why is it so hard for these designers to make a good zombie game...there are millions of ideas that could be done to be an 'original' zombie game with excellent combat..why cant they get it right..im guessing there will just be no one to top resident evil..what a shame with all the new graphics engines and combat engines out there..makes me wanna just get a degree in designing/programming so i could set the bar with my ideas...ill prob still play it for hours when it comes out..oh well

    I like the gameplay however the graphics nedd a bit of polishing, however I know this game is still in an alpha stage so I'm not worried.

    This looks to me like a cross between dead rising and oblivion and no matter how good that sounds and in reality SHOULD be, this just looks AWFUL to me. Gameplay is slow so I don't feel like I'm watching anyone SURVIVE anything it's just someone living their life, just with a few extra bat swings. Not what I expected at all.

    i think it looks good the combat could be tweaked a little to give it a more natural feel and i'm not shore i under stand how baseball bat with nails + car = bang but it would come and handy over all i still can not wait for this game i hope they will put out dlc and maybe ween pre order get a little something something maybe a different look for your surviver or some weapon in your safe room or just a skill for your skill tree but at any rate i can not wait.

    This first part I wrote about a week ago but never posted:

    "So Dead Island. It's basically a cross between Dead Rising 2 and Left 4 Dead 2. I haven't been able to find any game play but I've heard about how you combine objects to make new weapons (which according to a Developer are not "Whacky, just deadly and effective.") although I swore I read something about combining a machete and a battery to create an electric knife (which I also believe I've seen a picture of). "

    Then I stopped writing because I got distracted. So now I've seen the game play and as it is not the final product I'm not going to comment on graphics, glitches, or other logistics of the game. It simply looks like a cross between Dead Rising 2 and L4D2. Now I'm not into monsters. I think Resident Evil is a good movie until the Necromosis or whatever the giant black oil bunny that chases them in the tunnels is shows up. I find the idea of a realistic story and setting more frightening then a giant shirtless man with a triangular helmut on his head for a face.

    So needless to say I've been wanting a REAL Zombie game (and movie, Which 28 Days later is very close) and I kind of thought this was going to be it. L4D is fun to play but at the end of the day you still have Boomers, Tanks and whatnot. Dead Rising is also fun but again isn't all that realistic. I kind of hoped this would be it. But then as I stated in that earlier piece I saw a Machete with ' visible waves of electricity' sparking in how man's hand and now with the game play have seen a zombie get hit with that weapon and they did the classical (and lame) Comedy bit of standing still, making jammered noise and losing health while visible streams of electricity flow around his body.

    I know it's going to sound very snooty/snobish of me but that kind of stuff is going to make me lose all sense of 'suspended reality' and I might as well be playing L4D. Even with the larger Zombie in the Straight Jacket running at me I can maybe trick myself into pretending that it just so happens to be a giant zombie who was in a straight jacket. But if I use weapons that are "Whacky" and cause "Whacky" animations as above then it's hard for me to not think of it as another L4D: Tropical Paradis3 game. (See what I did there)

    I mean hey maybe I'm a very few minority that wants to lose myself in a Zombie Video game. Please click Reply and let me know if you want that or if you rather have the whackyness mixed in.

    I don't know what anyone else is talking about because this looks awesome. I've been waiting for a realistic zombie game since that condom broke about 19 years ago.

    The game itself looks pretty good, but they could've gotten someone who plays it better to showoff the gameplay better and the games full potential.

    Looks like it's just Condemned with zombies.

    Is it just me or did the lifeguard with the tattoos on his face look like a zombie?

    Meh. The concept is interesting, but I'm gonna need to see some MAJOR gameplay upgrades before it comes out.

    did that bat with nails really just blow up a car? It look ok tho. just seems like Left 4 Dead with a slower pace and less excitment.

    stop saying that the game looks like this and it looks like that.
    I think the game looks like its own game and not like fallout or farcry or borderlands and DEFINANTLY not like GTA IV or call of duty MW
    the only reason it looks like L4D 2 is the zombies and 1st person melee
