    Enjoyed the first a lot, despite it's flaws (mostly the crafting, tbh).

    Will be getting this :)

    I enjoyed the original too. Although some of the side quests were pretty unintuitive and I found myself winging it through the main story. Hopefully the new setting will give this an extra kick, as the co-op is great if you can laugh at the occasional bugs.

    Yep. Laugh at the bugs...and then stomp the heads of the zombies with your boot. Everything seems better :)

    Really enjoye dthe first one - works very well in Eyefinity - so will definately be picking this one up.

    As a quick note I remember the Deo Bomb being in the original game. It is listed here as a "new" item.

    I'm sure John's marshal arts are absolutely devastating.

    I enjoyed playing the first one up to a point. Then I got annoyed when patches would make new bugs. For example, I couldn't always pick up my modified thrown weapon after certain patches, making me lose a frustrating amount of really good weapons. I've been tempted to give it another shot at some point. Either way, I feel that I got my money's worth for the time I did spend playing.

    I can't be the only person who thought Dead Island was pretty rubbish and boringly repetitive?
