When you start off like that Darks, people have a habit of not reading, or caring, about what comes after it.

I thought the A:CM thing was a one game thing, apparently your whole attitude is that if you like a game everyone else must like it or there is something wrong with them. It is like history is repeating itself or something...

Dead Island is not original in any way, it is boring, and the gameplay mechanics suck. The story sucks. There is literally nothing positive about the game. It is worth exactly zero dollars. On sale for 10 cents I would not buy it because a gum ball would be more fun to chew. As I said previously, if you like it I am happy for you...have it. I think playing the game is a waste of time and paying for it is a waste of money.

66% off isn't enough.

Why not? Are you cheap or something?

Wow, that escalated quickly. The game is terrible. Glad you liked it, no reason to attack me for not liking it.

I believe that comment ended with a question and not an accusation. Big difference!!

The Skill tree was upgraded adding new skills, there are now Quick Kills, and the mouse now wheels through the weapons. That to me was a big enchantment over having to radial wheel to change a weapon out. The game plays very smoothly. We had no bugs, crashes or any issues that prevented us from completing the game.

And Cutter youíre a fine one to talk about Trolls when in fact you do quite a bit yourself.

Verno don't feed the trolls. And personally I found this, like all zombie games, repetitive and boring. The ambiance was nice but it gets stale fast.

Iím not fighting over anything; I just stated an obvious fact. Now you guys are trying to say that longevity of a game is not worth the price tag. I find that comment amusing when Iíve read here several hundred times over from many that a lengthy game is what people determine as cost worthy.

That's pretty silly though, value determinations are inherently subjective. For example, The Last of Us wasn't an overly long game but I value it significantly because of the quality of the story. I've played 5-6 hour games I thought were worth $60 and I've played long games I wouldn't have spent money on in retrospect. There is no formula you can just apply to everything, it's always case by case, person by person. So yes, time spent alone isn't all there is, it's a variety of factors that's different to everyone. As the saying goes one man's trash is another man's treasure.

So getting back on topic, what are these changes and enhancements from the original? I ask because I recall many saying it was heavily derivative, to the point where it even shares many of the same bugs.

But you are now saying the length of a game is not in terms of what you are paying for. I think sometimes many of you here are in fact cheap and feel that everything should be either free or 5 dollars. That to me pretty well puts the cheap tag over your head. I found the add-on to be much more fun and enjoyable then the original.

Thats your opinion, maybe find some friends to play it with and it wont be so bad.

I played the first game with 3 friends, we thought it was ok but nothing special. I haven't played much of Riptide yet, I was just offering what I thought Jivaro was getting at. You're too anxious to e-fight over nothing. Maybe if you got some friends then you wouldn't be so angry all the time

I beg to differ, 60 dollars is expensive in terms of buying a game that ONLY last 4 to 5 hours. When compared to this game when you can get well over 30 hours of game play. You must be cheap Verno!

Gameplay isn't worth anything when it isn't fun and stop being a little twerp.

Nah you're just being an obnoxious little twerp. Gameplay isn't worth anything when it isn't fun was the point. I don't care if a game is 60 hours or 6, if I'm not enjoying the actual gameplay then it isn't worth much.

That being said it's a free weekend so its the best time for people to hop in and make that choice.

$14 is expensive if you don't like the gameplay. Free weekend is the best time to make that determination though.

Durability is not an issue, there are work station all over the place to repair and upgrade.

Item durability is still a factor, but 2 or three good weapons should do for an expedition. There are many more workbenches as well.

Same, but I did finish it coop. I enjoyed it! The later game is also good fun. I recommend using the stutter remover and FOV tweaks (for the first game). Haven't played Riptide yet but this is a good price.

Did they ever fix item durability so that it didn't run out so fast? I didn't play much, but I remember people bitching about that. It sounded like something I'd be annoyed with, so I didn't get in to it.

How so? $13.59 seems like a fine deal to me if this is anything at all like the original.
