So Dead island is a pretty popular topic, sadly however it is not about how good the game is. Instead it's all been about the many problems it has have, saves are going missing, games checkpointing you in a place you can't get out of, new game plus is broken and the game won't even load.

Well who out there is like me and have NOTHING bad happen? I have had really nothing go wrong, I've had none of this save stuff or loading issues, who among us are really lucky?

I'm kinda worried talking about it will then result in demise but I have not had any problems with the game.

#3 Posted by Von (330 posts) -

Me. Bought it the day it got released on Steam in Europe, and have had no glitches, bugs or pretty much anything that would interrupt gameplay in the 15 hours I've played so far. It even places me in the same spot where I saved the last time I exited the game, and I've not seen any loss of levels or quests etc.

I would like to point out I have played about 18 hours and am playing on the PS3 version.

#5 Posted by Arker101 (1484 posts) -

I played it fine for 43 hours, finished the game and NG+ didn't work, however two of my friends, one on PC, one on Xbox, have both been doing just fine.

#6 Posted by AlexW00d (6798 posts) -

The fact that everything is low res and I keep having to edit config files to get vsync to stick aside, nope, all good here.

#7 Posted by gamb1t (1000 posts) -

me, cause i dont buy games at launch. gotta give it 3 months or so

#8 Posted by Marcsman (3381 posts) -

It was fine until the patch. Now it freezes up in combat.
#9 Posted by BleedingStarX (346 posts) -

I've had a few zombies fall through the floor and stuff, but in terms of the saves corrupting and all the other problems that have been listed I had none

#10 Posted by TEHMAXXORZ (1190 posts) -

I don't own the game, but it always seems weird when people say they've experienced game breaking bugs in games that I play regularly. Like in Fallout New Vegas, I never had a corrupt save or any serious glitches like (it seems) a lot of people had, I only got the shit where bodies tied them selves into knots after death...

#11 Posted by Pezen (1809 posts) -

Played a few hours of it at a friend's place, it's pretty damn entertaining. Cracking skulls as they run towards me is a blast. Definitely also enjoying the analog control, took a little getting used to what they wanted me to do, but once that was done, it was all easy street. I was quest running a lot but if I had the game myself, I would probably do a lot more quest-free roaming around, it seems like fun just exploring.

#12 Posted by McShank (1649 posts) -

at 40+ hours now on the pc. only had glitches at the launch night before patch but all it did was have me lose my progress. I still have the same level, money and inventory upon starting the campaign again AND i still have the ripper mod on that 1 character alone even though i pre-ordered it from someone else. I am on my NG+ with my other character though and it is working fine. Problem is i have yet to find many co-op opportunities in it since i doubt many people are in a NG+ and at level 41 : / (i have yet to do the quest to find the lighthouse.)

#13 Posted by benjaebe (2870 posts) -

I've been playing on PC. We get some occasional co-op glitches and I crash to desktop every once in awhile, but I can't really say I'm having any game-breaking problems. It's been a really positive experience overall. The cooperative mode is really fun.

#14 Posted by daggon55 (123 posts) -

I've had no major issues with the 360 version. But I've had a bunch of minor ones, zombies getting stuck in mid air for no apparent reason, spawning issues where sometimes it will spawn me near a zone transition rather than my last checkpoint, rubberbanding issues on escort quests.

#15 Posted by Valames (758 posts) -

I have the "god awful broken PC version" and have only experienced a couple minor bugs. One being a quest will disappear from my log, but once I am in the map it is supposed to be completed, it comes back. This only really happened with one quest. The Russian spy one.

The other minor bugs were kind of fun.

1. I kicked a beach ball and died.

2. I opened a door to a pharmacy... died.

3. I hit two zombies with my katana and they launched into orbit.

#16 Posted by Barrock (3773 posts) -

I've got the weird sound error in the main menu. When I launched the game it would immediately crash. So I switched to speakers. Got into the prologue. Exited the hotel and it crashed. I has a sad.

#17 Posted by Jimbo (10262 posts) -

A couple of little niggles and a little console port jank, but nothing too major. I'm enjoying it so far - it's basically just melee Borderlands.

#18 Posted by Patman99 (1642 posts) -

I havent had any major issues playing the 360 version. One little bug I did get was that I have infinite inventory space. So if I pick up more then 12 items it will just say 13/12, and so on. I dont know what is going on but whatever, doesnt bother me...

#19 Posted by Ravenhoe (193 posts) -

I reckon the people who just enjoy the game and have nothing (or only minor things) to complain about are just playing the game and not lurking on the forums and complaining. I have played for 14 hours and only experienced minor glitches and clunkiness but no major bugs etc.

#20 Posted by ninjakiller (3428 posts) -

Mine has gone to the desktop for no apparent reason 4 times now at 7 hours in. Aside from that it's been great.

#21 Posted by CoinMatze (518 posts) -

I finished the game yesterday with 40 hours on that character. It only crashed twice, both times while fighting Jason. I really wanted that chainsaw. Some minor clipping issues but nothing serious. Playing the PC version, installed from disc.

#22 Posted by Bandit_Fox (153 posts) -

It hasn't been that janky for me on the PS3, but I didn't get the patch yet.

One annoyance is when random enemies seem to spawn in. The other night I was walking down a hall after I cleared an area and started fighting a thug when about 6 zombies mauled me from behind. I'm pretty damn sure they weren't there - I went back and checked the area and there weren't any places they could have hid. When I got back to the thug that pack was just gone.

Oh... also, quest tracking is completely f-ed at times. I select a quest and the way point doesn't show up. I switch it off and on a couple times and then it pops up. Annoying, but not a deal breaker.

#23 Posted by Redbullet685 (6217 posts) -

I've gotten a few quests do themselves, but nothing too bad.

#24 Posted by mazik765 (2335 posts) -

I'm on Act 2 and have noticed almost nothing wrong technically. Once I died because I closed a door I was standing in but that's about it.

#25 Posted by Spadge (74 posts) -

Yep, playing the PS3 version and encountering only the most minor open world jank. None of the saves bullshit, no real problems with clipping or texture pop-in - just hours of mindless, joyful zombie smashing.

#26 Posted by Rhaknar (6299 posts) -

played and finished on pc, 25hours played, and the only problem I had was 4 sidequests reseting once (i could re-do them, and did for more xp :P), thats it. Game ran perfectly maxed out otherwise

#27 Edited by Tesla (2020 posts) -

No bugs to report here after about 5-7 hours on the 360 version. I've actually found the game to be quite stable for an open world joint. I've gone back and forth between games with strangers, friends and solo with everything flowing nicely.

#28 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Just fine so far at 35+ hours on the PC version.

#29 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7802 posts) -

Had a bug in which a certain quest told me I had completed parts of that quest that I hadn't, all I did was reload my last checkpoint and it was fixed, it only happened with that one quest though. Other than that small problem that took little time to fix, everything has been going smoothly.

#30 Posted by Vodun (2393 posts) -

I was fine until I went into the multiplayer. Fairly often I get synch and disconnect problems.

#31 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1193 posts) -

I had nothing major (360 version). They released the update and it screwed up the ability to use med-kits and booze from the inventory screen, that's a real pain in the ass but no game breaking.

#32 Posted by project343 (2880 posts) -

Aside from launch day madness, I'm about 25 hours in on PC. Zero major bugs. Stupid stuff like clipping, and a few strange online co-op weirdnesses, but nothing that I didn't laugh at.

#33 Posted by owenneil (124 posts) -

I can't say I have had no problems, but I can say none of the bugs have been game breaking. I'm playing the Xbox version.

#34 Posted by TheSeductiveMoose (3629 posts) -

I accidentally watched how the animations looked in 3rd person. I will never look at this game the same way again.

Haha, so true ^^
#36 Posted by Cincaid (3048 posts) -

Been playing on 360 with zero issues so far (except one, which I'll go into detail below). Been playing alone so far, doing everything, and am soon at Act 3. Will start with co-op today or tomorrow, hopefully it won't screw things up (though I'll do that on a new character from the beginning). Overall I'd say this game is so far easily on my top five of the year list.

My ONE "bug" I had was when I was in the city sewers. Anyone who have played through that part alone knows how difficult it could get. So when I ran into a room of several undead, including a suicider and that fat zombie type, I threw my orange level axe at an exploding barrel, which killed the undead but also apparently made my axe fly to the moon through a manhole. I was not pleased with playing through the rest of that part without my main weapon, which I had upgraded and modded to the max. :(

I'll also leave this video here that had me laughing for 20 minutes straight:

#38 Posted by plaintomato (616 posts) -

I'm on PS3, 30 hours in, and haven't had any save issues or other game breaking issues. I came close on the main quest mission where you have to take your truck to the mechanic and the garage door wouldn't open but after leaving the area a couple times and coming back awhile later it worked itself out. Buggy? Yeah. Broken? Nah. Worth it? Definitely.

#39 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6420 posts) -

With the Xbox 360 version, I've had no issues. Let's hope that saying that will not jinx it.

#40 Posted by razorzxz (219 posts) -

Yeah same for me. It's a great game! and I feel as if I have to stand up for half the time rather than admire it unfortunately.

#41 Posted by MAD_JIHAD (199 posts) -

DI is definitely one of my favourite games, I beat it in under 10 hours and now im going through it with friends again and again. There is probably a good 25-35 hours of quality side missions to do.

The issues I had with the PC version were solved by the time version 1.1 came out.

#42 Posted by Mmmslash (2190 posts) -

I've had no real bugs with it, except once when it acted as if my inventory was full, and I was unable to pick up my weapons I had just thrown.

That said, my issues with the game have literally nothing to do with jank. My biggest complaint is the game is pretty boring, which seems way, way worse than bugs.

Grind early build skill tree & Loot a lot it is a RPG after all.

#45 Posted by Phreaker (31 posts) -

I had my 360 lock up once, but that's it. (knocks on wood) I have 3 characters and about 40hrs played between them so far. I'm really enjoying the game. It's the most fun friends and I have had in co-op since Borderlands.

#46 Posted by ninjakiller (3428 posts) -

Mine still goes to desktop for no apparent reason at least once a play session.

#47 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6115 posts) -

I've been playing for several hours today on my PC and i haven't encountered a single problem.

#48 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -

I completed the game today, 20 hours, no problems at all.

Your name just makes that comment all the better.

On Topic: I am playing the apparently broken PC version and I have had absolutely 0 problems or bugs or crashes. With some mods that change a few things I am loving the game :)

#50 Posted by krazy_kyle (740 posts) -

No problems with mine except for the dreaded beach balls. If you play co-op with an ***hole friend, don't tell him about the fact that beach balls can kill if you kick them at other players. It has only happened to me a few times but it's honestly kind of funny.
