This game is never going to pull off anyone giving 2 *bleep*s about the characters or story, not to mention the terrible voice actors and animations making the game look like a joke.

Techland are idiots for making a non co-op DLC, that's the only shining light for this game.

well what have you been playing this game on all this time then? a default home computer? a playstation/Xbox hooked up to a standard TV or though a SCART cable?

i played this game on a playstation 3 myself in HD on a LED tv which i made custom settings for to match with the colors and shading in the enviroment and even though it will never be as sharp and perfect as it will on a well oiled gamePC dead island's visuals and voice acting are well taken care of.

sides, a little solo isn't so bad. white could use some background story aswell as sinamoi. those two are the most interesting NPC's in the game if you ask me, and while co op is fun the aditional 3 characters needed for it may end up doing harm to the original story.

PS3. 55" LED Samsung 3DTV.

The game is pretty, but the voice acting is terrible. Not to mention that most of the game is focused on Australian characters. They then get New Zealander voice actors to do bad impersonations of an Australian accent so all the characters wind up sounding like stereotypes.

The story was as basic as they get, lab makes chemical weapon out of local flora, chemical weapon makes zombies (ono). Nao army gon blow it all up k? BUT THEN THIS GUY YEAH HIS WIFE GOT INFECTED SO HES GOTTA FIND AN ANTIDOTE HOLY SHIT.

Seen it.

calm down a little JB, nobody here is attacking you.

almost all games, even the great ones have a few things in them that usually have gamers scratching their heads over. there's no such thing as perfection, you can ask that to anyone here.

now as for that last sentence they are called plot points for a reason. anyone can break down titles like dead island, skyrim, final fantasy or pokemon into something compact like what you said but it doesn't mean it's all the game has to offer. we get a big world to explore and routes to take and choices to make. the gamer decides.

Why the focus on making the villain seem more human when they didn't give any sort of care to flesh out the main characters. No one in the core game had anything about them to make me care.. Now Techland feel it's a right time when the core game is done to start doing character driven stuff? A bit stupid really.
