I actually beat this game about one day ago and I feel really bad that I did it now. It was not worth all the frustration, but I didn't want to get so far in the game and not beat it. My determination may kill me one day.
i'm level 31 on ps3. while i agree to most of the rants in this, i find the atmosphere keeps me playing. and while i'm interested in finishing ( with xian ), i doubt i would do the same with the others
I love Xian, but I can't get the thought of how similar she is to Ada out of my head. I mean, it's like Deep Silver pretty much took Ada and put her in Dead Island. There is little difference between the two women, besides location, weapon preference and name. Think about it. Deep Silver basically stole the character palette and renamed it Xian.
Good grief, this was from awhile back. Anyways, I only played as Xian. Since there was no dialogue that I can recall for her, her personality is not exactly something I can remark upon. After reading her profile, I wanted to play as her with a sense of her being an average person, one who may not take to survival as quickly. A stark contrast to Ada's being a spy and a specialist with various weapons and hand to hand combat. Perhaps the studio had this in mind to keep Xian from being a clone. Who knows? Thank you for replying. Sorta nostalgic. xD
just as well old friend. turns out they rushed riptide to produce a zombie game for warner bros. I hate it when something that could have been really great turns to shit.... "glares at the shitbox one"
I agree with #7, people in that game ask for the stupidest shit. One time, a woman asked me to go rescue her teddy bear, which was a few cabins away. I'm serious; she wanted me to fight through a horde of zombies and risk my life to save a TEDDY BEAR! Honestly! Smh...
Well, said lady was also kinda out of it and mentally was acting more like a 5 year old then a 20 year old. Kinda stupid, but the zombie apoc just broke her . Better then the lady who gives you the continues quest for water and after giving her 20 bottles she still goes "Have you found any yet? I won't survive without water! My muscles are cramping!" Yeah, it's supposed to be repeatable but it's annoying to hear her say that after getting a bunch .
I don't remember where this part is, probably around the same quest as the teddy bear, but the woman who wanted to make sure her husband was alive - but the husband wanted know part of her. xD Waste of my time~ But I did enjoy the game. Even with all the rage it brought me
9) Realize that the kick: has no cooldown, does not deteriorate with each hit, causes knockdown, and can be used to suppress upward of 5 zombies at a time as they feebly try to get back up, thus making it superior to most melee weapons.
got it for a birthday gift, in spite of its many flaws it is at least somewhat realistic( as in taking on left 4 dead style enemies alone with melee weapons will most likely end with you being raped). Also did you note the laughably underpowered firearms in the game. Finally just in case you haven't decided to pick it up again, the last parts of the game are full of the same wooden dialogue and frustrating meandering as the first parts.
