I believe it is running off of Chrome Engine 5 which is also used in the new Call of Juarez title.

I wonder what engine this uses. Anyone know?

Looks great, but I love open world games anyway.

Melee combat in general has been awful. Oblivion's was all right, and Dark Messiah's was tits, but pretty much every other game with melee combat has just been terrible. Games never convey the sense of inertia that goes into swinging a giant object at things. There's never any feedback.

Also, I want to mention how impressed I am that they kept a proper FOV number. Most games these days seem to use 50-60.
They probably needed it in order to get the proper feel for having the full use of the characters body, and being able to see it.

And yes, I agree, Bulletstorm is awful.

Honestly, this looks better than I expected.

I just hope the gameplay is enjoyable; 1st person melee usually doesn't turn out very well. And I can see the voice acting getting very irritating quickly.

Of course, I wasn't really expecting anything like the trailer. If the trailer and game were made by the same company, maybe. But I suspect Axis Animation had their own idea and were allowed to run with it.

Proving that everything is better with "RPG elements".

Except Bulletstorm. Bulletstorm is awful.

I was really losing faith in this game after seeing all the media released after the amazing debut trailer, but this really does look like it's quite polished and a helluva lot of fun.

Looks like it will be a blast. 4 player co-op drop in drop out.

Models look like ass though....

There are SO many people whining that it's not "dark, horrifying survival" as "heavily implied" by the backward cinematic trailer... Even proclaiming that they can be sued for false advertising. Ridiculous.

I loved Borderlands, Far Cry 2, and Left 4 Dead, so an amalgamation of the three looks great to me!

This is looking better and better the more they show.

First 10 seconds of Dead Island trailer: "I must've clicked on the wrong video, this looks like Call of Duty."

Although the game looks like it's completely lacking in the drama/emotion shown in the original Dead Island trailer, it definitely looks fun. It reminds me of Far Cry 2, with a bit of Left 4 Dead's melee combat.

The graphics are good. I wonder if it can handle more than a handful of zombies on screen?
