Is this game good? I've been wanting to get it for the coop for a while now.

The game is actually pretty entertaining. Running around bashing zombie skull is a good stress reliever.

It is entertaining, but has huge huge problems. Worth $4 though.

@disconnect: you should say which huge problems you are talking about because I have played this on Xbox and haven't had any problems with it.

@segafanalways: I do remember the PC version would occasionally crash on me, I had a few small graphics glitches, and at one point it even loaded a saved game into a different stage of the map. However, those were the early days right around the time it just came out. Haven't played it recently, but I'm guessing they've patched it by now.

@freakdiablo: I didn't know the PC version had those issues. I didn't play dead island until it had been out about 3 months so maybe I missed some of the early bugs on Xbox.

i have this on the 360 and if i had a pc capable of gaming, i would gladly pick this up again. if/when consoles go all digital, they need to take a page from steam's business model.

@segafanalways: Could have just been that the console version was more stable. I mean, crashing and graphics glitches, it might not have played well with that version of Catalyst (I was using an AMD card at the time). Don't know about the "I'm going to spawn you in the middle of the jungle, even though you just got to the city!" thing though.

Worked great for me, as well. Thanks for this.

I'd played it for PC when it came out (cough, thanks PirateBay) but it was very buggy and saved games tended to disappear. I deleted it pretty quickly.

All to happy to pay this kind of money for a decent game.

Code worked like Buddha ... FOUR BUCKS

@segafanalways:

Didn't see the reply earlier.

I've had a truck wedge itself in the trees and start beatboxing up and down on it's suspension (btw you take damage when your vehicle goes from 8' in the air to on your head and back..) Had to walk back, it just wouldn't come out. Or stop dancing.

There are huge, obvious pieces of story missing that they didn't have time to produce. Especially in the cut scenes, where they reference something that was completely excised from the game.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/4694-Dead-Island has a pretty good summary. (NSFW language.)

I played on ps3.

Hmm...4 bucks. Can't really go wrong, right?

I figured I'd try it too. $4 ain't bad if I get any entertainment value out of it at all. :) BTW, this deal isn't dead, I just tried it 5 minutes ago and it worked.
