Easier to model I guess.

I don't like it as much now that I've seen gameplay.  the CG teaser did it's job correctly and was interesting,  but this doesn't look interesting to me.

This game is like a dude who is trying really, really hard not to laugh at a funeral.

I'd like to be optimistic for the game, but how does this differ from Left 4 Dead besides an island setting, electrified machetes, and Jack Daniels?

This looks really fun. I'm a fan of any game that attempts to do more than shoot guns from the first person perspective.

It's a resort island?

Meh. So you get to play as a foul-mouthed, drunk a-hole?  Sorry, not interested.
 
I had high hopes after the original CG teaser trailer because it looked as if the game was character driven and had an emotional hook. The actual gameplay footage looks like more of the same "over the top" stuff. Not seeing much difference from Left 4 Dead.

I was really excited for this game until the moment I realised it was a full-out action game rather than a proper survival horror one... :(

From the impression I have more open world mission based. Probably easier to say first person Dead Rising minus mad weapons and costumes.

#15 Posted by dr_mantas (1886 posts) -

Maybe if the story can support itself, with characters, etc... The action looks pretty cool, and maybe if there's some style to it...

You know what? This could be pretty good.

#16 Posted by Getz (3017 posts) -

still a bit hazy on how the characters work... It seems like you can play as different characters but haven't said if it's a forced switch or if you pick from the beginning.

The dude went to bed as a drunk white guy and woke up a hungover black guy. Now thats one crazy night.

Neat idea, looks fun & want to see more.

#21 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1727 posts) -

Completely unsurprising. It's a zombie game. 

#22 Posted by aidros (238 posts) -

Open world RPG? Awesome Zombies? Cool Together? Fuck...Yeah!

still wondering what that song at the end is, or the theme music that has been used for dead Island... is it anything specific? I really like it.

Okay, I could dig that. I noticed "RPG elements" someplace so that's something else too.

#27 Posted by kerse (2114 posts) -

I'm pretty interested in this game, if you get to play before the zombie thing even happens that'll be cool you don't really get to see that whole part where its spreading in games too often.

Did that rap song say "Hide yo kids, hide yo wife" ?

You actually get to choose from a variety of different characters with different storylines, and will then bump into the other characters a la Farcry 2. Also full 4 player co op through the entire story. Game looks like it has vast potential to be very good, deep, story based fun.
#30 Posted by deltaalphabravo (144 posts) -

....hopes dashed. :(

#31 Posted by DukesT3 (1917 posts) -

I still have hopes. If its a better looking version of L4D and with a story hopefully as deep as maybe something like the Walking Dead, then count me the fuck in! 

#32 Posted by zeezkos (64 posts) -

electrified machetes.  xp and dmg numbers floating all over the screen...  I'm concerned that it won't be scary at all, just a fun romp.  Which is ok, of course.. just not what i mistakenly believed it would be......  
 
on a side note, I do like the integration of fast and slow zombies, with the faster ones being an in-between stage.  At least it seems that you can switch off the floating combat text.

Oh, that's good to know. My interest waned considerably when it seemed like it was going to be another carbon-copy zombie FPS.  If it indeed has decent story elements, characterization, and gameplay that sets it apart then I'll keep it on my radar.

Oh man, for a second there I about shat on Dead Island when it looked like I was gonna be stuck with the "hoodoo voodoo, bitch!" guy.  Please don't ruin such a promising game for me.

Got a real Walking Dead Hawai fibe from that trailer...the music and everything!

From what I gathered it will have a lot of mission based rpg-esque quests a la Fallout 3 and Oblivion, which could make for a much wider assortment of gameplay options than L4D's "GET TO THE FUCKING SAFEHOUSE!"

What? No Power? lame.

No costumes yet, but I'm pretty sure I saw a workbench for putting nails in a bat in one of the leaked videos that was posted on the forums a week or two ago.

That's probably where some of the RPG elements come into play (if you even consider it that)? Customizable or upgradable weapons.

I hope they make the game engaging and deep for the solo player as well as multiple players.

#41 Posted by christ0phe (952 posts) -

It's basically Oblivion/Fallout with zombies

#42 Posted by sixpin (1292 posts) -

@bonorbitz: Personally, I'm not too thrilled by what I've seen so far, but I'm going to keep an eye on it. I like to be surprised by games sometimes (in a good way, not in a Brutal Legend way).

#43 Posted by CallMeRotten (229 posts) -

The first trailer I have seen with actual gameplay footage and...not good. Ah well.

#44 Posted by nasie (126 posts) -

This looks like it could be a surprise surprise great game! but it also could be very medicore

#45 Posted by ProjektGill (752 posts) -

I was never a fan of first-person brawlers. I tried the Condemned games and didn't like them so I don't think I'll be picking this up.

#46 Posted by ScreamingFist (364 posts) -

Right in the fuckin' head

#47 Posted by LemonJoose (52 posts) -

Yep, it's pretty clear that the "Family / Little Girl" trailer was totally misleading, because this new trailer makes it pretty clear this game is just going to be another ultraviolent zombie-killing game with little hope that it somehow found a way to include a real story or characters you actually care about.

It was composed for the trailer by Giles Lamb. Can be downloaded here.

Why won't they just get the fuck out his way already

#50 Posted by SkinnyBlue (320 posts) -

So...I'm sort of confused by that first trailer with the family and the little girl now. Because this just looks like another "Kill as many fu*king zombies as you can" game, and not a game with a deep, emotional story that has believable and likeable characters. It does look like fun, though. But it seems like they've completely ditched the tone that they were going for with their first trailer.
