Disappointing...but fun

The game is disappointing, but not necessarily a bad game. What do you think?

Disappointing how?
The only problems I had with it were the story wasn't the best and the gliching, which Riptide promises to fix both, so... No complaints.

The only disappointing part for me is the storage there's only 1 place in the entire game to store weapons and the weapon degrades really easily, oh and waiting for my coop partner to come online

I was really into it until my save corrupted and then I said F it. I wasn't going to replay 30+ to get to the same point. 2 of out of the group of 4 I played with had our saves corrupted. Some bull right there.

Definitely a disappointment, especially the coop. The single player was pretty good, just way too many of the same stupid fetch quests. Also the last boss was a joke, I took him out in a couple shots. I gave this a 6/10 rating in the 'rate my games played' thread, mostly because of the absolutely atrocious coop and repetition of the game.

No way. Left for dead was average LFD2 was decent. Dead rising was shocking.

No its not. i love both but this game is completley different. Theres no 72 hours time limit,or being stuck in one big area,the melee feels better,driving is better,gun fights feel better.

The setting could have been better. The DLC was a steaming pile of diarrhea. Co-op play was required to make the game bearable. Overall, I'd have to agree in that it's a disappoint. The game is okay, but it's a disappointment for sure.

It's one of the best games I have ever played. I bought it back in late 2011 when it was fairly new and I absolutely hated it. I came back to it last year and couldn't put it down. You know why I couldn't put it down? Because I gave it a chance. I advise you to do the same if you haven't played it much.

You're talking about Dead Island 1, am I right? I'm thinking whether to buy Riptide or not.

Game is amazing. I don't see how anyone thought this game was a dissapointment.

Maybe they had their hopes to high. Even then Everything was new and orginal. Techland is amazing. I didn't expect anything and I was blown away. If you hated the game give it another shot.

I didn't always like Skyrim and Little Big Planet 2. I had my hopes too high. After giving it a 2nd try with any expectations I loved both.

I don't see this game as a dissapointment. I bought it for the zombie bashing, and it more than delivered.

If you felt this was "new and original" you didn't play Dead Rising which was a much better game in every way

Took the exact words out of my mouth. Not horrendous but could have spent have more time on a new engine and actual gameplay. Meh.

The game could have been better with less zombies at main areas. I am getting tired killing same enemies multiple times just for getting access to different locations. Bored of those damn streets of Moresby full of infecteds one time and another and another... Less spam and the game would improve.

Have 1,000 in it.

Ok first @Dzoit. I have 1000 in DR 1 and 200 in both arcade/dlcs of DR2. I also own every DR game out right now. Even then Dead Island is new and orginal. I Love the DR series but I still say Tech Land was onto something.

Techland,being new,could have spent more time on the online aspect.

The randoms are terrible in this game,kicking me for no reason constantly,and or doing there on thing doing quests for me. There is no ''CO OP'' with RANDOMS.

To make matters worse some have discovered how to glitch freeze and kill fellow players.

This game is a blast in CO OP with friends but not with randoms.

The Town of moresby wasnt that good. I did love the Jungle and Island though.

Another complaint is the Story ending. It was so generic and confusing. The final boss I had to look up on Wiki as to why I was fighting him. I had never seen him before in the game at all.

Don't understand the Dead Rising comparisons at all, apart from there being zombies.... this is a completely different kind of game.

Game play is good, cracking a zombies skull is sooo satisfying which you can't say about Dead Rising or L4D, the crafting and creating weapons aspect seems really balanced, looking forward to leveling up my character and trying the others out for different play styles, the Island is beautiful so far, about 6 hours in I'm loving it.

First time I played it for some reason I didn't enjoy it , downloaded it for free and gave it another go and I'm hooked. I think the other posters comments about "giving a game a go" I can really relate to. I think the first time I played it I didn't upgrade any weapons or use my skill points and I remember getting to the first Thug and giving up.

There is more. No point storing weapons though, by the time you've been out and done the group of quests you have you will have leveled up/found new better weapons anyway.

As for the degrading, thats why you have so many slots.
