Images of Dead Island

As we are waiting for a sequel of Dead Rising, which won't happen until at least 2009, Techland poke us and tell us to be aware they are creating a zombie videogame called Dead Island for the Xbox 360. The company gives us two new images of this FPS as a gift.

Nice trees, but the water doesn't look too convincing.

I must say I'm quite intrigued by this Resident-Far-Cry type game.

I really liked Techland's Call of Juarez, so I have some hopes for this one.

What a shame. I really have nothing againt a first person camera system but something about it bugs me! I just like seeing the entire character I am playing with. This is part of the reason, FPSs in general do no interest me except those that really stand out of the like of Farcry, bioshock, half life and Halo.

Condemned and FEAR tried to break general FPS conventions aswell, try those out if you haven't already. Especially Condemned, I mean before the game was released I don't believe I'd ever played a survival FPS before... and I wouldn't even call it a shooter, since you only ever have a gun at the rarest moments. Other noteworthy mentions, Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness... you get to see your character in 3rd person occasionally :P

Looks good. It has zombies.

Doesn't look bad but it looks kind of bland, generic. Really looks a lot like Far cry. But hey, i wont say no to a big free-roaming zombie game!
Commented on 2007-09-30 00:12:51
looking good if you ask me. deliver on some fun gameplay and lots of gore, and its a definite purchase. hopefully this isnt to far off, i need to kill some zombies..........

Is it co-op btw anyone?. I sincerely hope so as this type of game would rule!. Left 4 Dead is using co-op in a different type of context, but this kind of `fee roam` style fps would be awesome with a friend as back-up. I recently watched Dawn of the dead (remake btw) again recently and man this would suit me down to the ground !.

Its because you are not interested in the game, thats why it doesn't stand out.

I played the first Killzone, and I hope they REALLY fix the aiming, AI, animations for the second one, the first one was a pain the ass.

But I have hopes for that game, hopefully they make it much better than the first one.

Stick to the subject Sath, this isn't a killzone thread..

Anyyyywwaayyyyy, screens look pretty cool. water looks a bit dodgy, but still not too bad. The idea for the game looks good enough, so shall have to wait for some gameplay vids! (Y)

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
