    Not A Leap But Truly the "Definitive" version

    I personally own both copies of Dead Island on the PS3,and having played that version and now this one,I can safely say that while this isn't truly Current gen,graphically,it is the definite copy to pick up pver the last gen versions. I truly believe it is the load times here that make this game so much more enjoyable. They added some lighting and graphical tweaks to the original game and spruced up some of the gameplay with some balances to weapons and enemy Hit-to-kill ratio. While a lot of the games are still the same between the last gen and this gen version,this feels like a more complete package. If you enjoyed either of the past iterations,this will keep your interest going,but I'd only recommend this game to those who've never tried out the Dead Island franchise and those who really want a more clean experience. But I don't recommend to those who maybe tried it out and didn't like it,or even dare I say,those who've played Dying Light. While this game is a totally more goofy silly take on first-person Merle zombies,it will will feel too outdated once you play Dying Light before this one,as it took me a while to accept the limitations and controls in this version coming from that game.

    I have the original 360 games and really enjoyed them. I upgraded to the Xbox One version to replay with the enhancements and have all the additional content together on disc (and save valuable space!). The game is as good as I remember it. My main reason for providing 4 stars is at times the game can get redundant (then again, many games do). But the enhancements and game play are excellent and worth the upgrade at this price. I am a gamer’s club unlocked member so the additional discount made the decision to purchase a no brainer.

    A GREAT ZOMBIE GAME, ENHANCED

    I played DEAD ISLAND (and its sequel, RIPTIDE) on the Xbox 360 years ago when they first came out. When I upgraded to the Xbox One, I started grabbing up older games that were being updated for the next gen console, and this DEAD ISLAND Compilation is the latest in my collection. The gameplay is exactly the same, but the overall look of the game, from the island settings to the infected/zombies is much enhanced. And the dynamic lighting effects and weather effects add to the overall experience. If you enjoyed these games on the 360, and have moved on to the Xbox One, I would recommend giving them a try!

    This game bundle is great, I've played both dead islands previously and I've gotta say they really upped the graphics. Performance wise it's great as well. One of the best zombie games I've played all year. The retro dead island game that came with the bundle is a nice addition, but it is not worth buying the game over. Also I have noticed there is no auto level option for multiplayer like there was in the original games. Other than that amazing! I've recommended this to multiple of my friends and have got many of them to buy and they've enjoyed it as well. Great Game!!

    Having played the originals when they were first released on the Xbox 360, I knew that I really enjoyed these games and I was looking forward to them on the Xbox One with all their enhancements. Well, it doesn't feel that different than what is already available on the Xbox 360. The graphical improvements are slight and the game still looks like an Xbox 360 game. Perhaps it was just my expectations but I can't say that this is worth getting over the already low priced Xbox 360 versions.

    While I would have preferred the same deal for PS4, can't turn it down at this price. I only recently played Riptide on PS3 so to have both games at a low price on a current gen system is great. These remasters might seem like a cash grab to some people, but I love having a complete collection with all DLC etc.Only problem was that the copy I bought for a friend, came with a broken case (some Best Buy employee just threw it in regardless)

    Great game at a great price you get three games in one. Dead island dead island riptide and a new 16 bit style beat em up only on this collection. Beautiful graphics. And improved performance no more screen tearing. Both games are for mature players since this is a zombie game and is ultra violent. Theses games Re huge and will take you 50 hours to complete if you want to accomplish everything. Easy acchiements too. Buy it now

    Enjoy The Dead Island Definitive Collection, which includes the popular Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide video games. These remastered games feature high-quality textures, now redone with higher resolution technology. With its new photo-realistic lighting system, the Dead Island Definitive Collection has given the game's sunny and tropical setting a more realistic look and feel that fans will love!!

    I never played these games on past Gen console so was new to me. I really enjoyed the 2 games but was very disappointed in the 2-D mini game that came with it, could of been so much more. Graphics are nice but not an amazing upgrade vs last gen, watched my friend play it on last gen. If you played on last gen consoles then can pass or wait till gets real cheap. I paid $12 and was well with it.

    This game was one of my Fav's on Xbox 360, and with this edition I got at a great price at Best Buy, I now can play it enhanced on my XB1. I think the enhancement are great addition and getting all the extras that I never got before makes this fan happy. I would recommend this to any existing fans or some who loves Zombies but never have played this game. I give this game an A+

    I'm a fan of the original games on the Xbox so I decided I'd like to play them again and picked this compilation up when it went on sale recently. I decided to purchase for the Xbox One rather than PS4 because both games come on 1 disc for X1 while PS4 only the 1st game is on the disc and the 2nd is a download only code. The update looks great, has full achievement support. Good value.

    I wanted to enjoy this game but so many bugs, it might actually be buggier than the first releasing on the 360. Don't get me wrong it's a fun game & it's a one of a kind just way too many bugs. It was a cash in because of the popularity of dying light. If you could get it cheap & enjoyed the first releasing it might be worth replaying otherwise it really isn't anything worth jumping on.

    2 games for the price of 1! These are some of my favorite zombie games ever made. I actually didn't care for Dying Light all that much, but found these to be fantastic. If you enjoy open world games along with zombies with a few RPG elements sprinkled in, you will love these games.

    I had never played the original versions so I can't make any comparisons but this collection should satisfy most zombie fans. The graphics and gameplay are fine with plenty of places to search for zombies and objects to collect being very similar to "Dying Light" which is a great game made by the same developer. A good addition for your zombie game library!

    I've played many games like this one and I believe Dying Light is far the best one of this gen. I have to give some credit to Dead Island, even with it's technical flaws the story is quite good. There's lot's to do and lot's to explore given you more play time for your buck. Give it a shot if you're just looking for something to play.

    I enjoyed the original game when it came out on the 360 and thought I would purchase the new version when it came out. You get two great games with the DLC from the originals with updated graphics at a great price. The retro side scrolling game is an added bonus. The crafting of weapons is what I really enjoyed in the game.

    I totally love this game. I have it for Xbox 360, my pc, and now Xbox one. Bought 3 copies so I could play with my kids/friends. It never gets old or boring to me. Best co-op game ever! It's fun, crazy, over the top and very well done. As much fun now as it was years ago when I first played. A must get game!

    I played both Dead Island games on the Xbox 360 and loved them. Getting the upgraded version on current gen console was a no-brainer. I did end up getting it also for my pc tho and found that version to be much better. Lots of fun, great game. Would recommend pc over console if that's an option and your pc can handle the specs.

    Two games in one for less than $25, good deal. I got it for my girlfriend because she wanted zombie games. I remember playing it on PlayStation 3 and was not impressed. When I started playing it I remembered why, the graphics and dialog. She has fun playing it and that's all that matters to me.

    Out of all the zombie games I have played I would have to say this one is the most interesting by far. The characters personalities tie into story very well. There's quests and a variety of weapons to. I think what I liked the most was the twists and turns. I recommend this game for any zombie lover.
