Ok I'm not sure how I missed this game but wtf ? I just got my hands on Dead Island and I have to say this is by far the best zombie game I have ever played. You have a skill tree to use and distribute points when you level your character up by earning exp. There is a vast array of weaponry at your disposal which can be upgraded and modified. The controls take a sec to get used to for combat but when you do holy shit you are going to be splitting heads like Sasha Grey. I took Logan who is a throwing weapon expert and I have to say that it is mucho fun to take out the legs of a zombie, wait for him to sit or even get up all dazed and then proceed to throw a crowbar into his dome just crushing the hell out of it. So funny I almost peed. There are a lot of missions to do and it is a big ass game. I give it 5 out of 5 just for the sheer enjoyment of it and the fact that it is nice to see a fluid zombie game finally.
