My thoughts on Dead Island

Out of all the games in the series, I would consider the original Dead Island to be my "specialty", followed by Riptide, its sequel. As such, it's about time I gave my thoughts on the game, explaining what I like and don't like about the game, much like how I did with Dead Island 2. Once again, spoilers for the plot and story. Additionally, this is all my opinion so your feelings might be different.

Dead Island Review.

Dead Island was the first game in the franchise, and the whole reason why Dead Island is where it is today now. It began originally as a trailer with a family fighting against a horde of zombies, before the daughter gets thrown out of the Hotel window after eventually turning into an Infected. Because of this people originally thought Dead Island was gonna be based around that, however when the game finally came out it was instead something else. This led to backlash by people saying it was "Misleading", however despite the backlash the game managed to pass through this controversy after time went by. And even though the game was perfect for it's time back in 2010 compared to how it's looked at in 2023 now, I still think the first game is …

My thoughts on Dead Island 2

So, having now recently completed the game, having played it on both a low end laptop and aged gaming PC, I feel like now is a good time to share my thoughts on the game.

There will likely be spoilers ahead, so if you either haven't finished the game or don't like spoilers, maybe wait until later to read this "review".

So, I've played the game on a laptop averaging about 10-15 FPS for half the game, and roughly the last half I actually managed to play mostly smoothly on my old gaming PC. Over the time, I've noted things I like, and other things I perhaps don't like as much. Of course, this is all my opinions, and your mileage will vary in terms of what you personally enjoy and don't enjoy about the game.

My thoughts on Escape Dead Island Part 4

Make sure to also see Part 3 and the other posts if you haven't already: User blog:DownAGameA/My thoughts on Escape Dead Island Part 3


  • 1 5. Narapela feels rushed or just small
  • 2 6. The weapons are really useless
  • 3 7. Major Spoilers for this but if you want to read it still even though I warned you, Go ahead not my problem if I ruined the game ending for you but anyway. Number 7: The Ending is something that makes you question if it was even worth it?
  • 4 Score:


Despite again this game went with a one story type game and not really a freeroam in the game but Narapela is really small, If you compare to the other maps before and what they had because: Dead Island and Riptide not only had just one map you would play in for the rest of the game but they h…

My thoughts on Escape Dead Island Part 3

See the part 2 blog post if you haven't already: User blog:DownAGameA/My thoughts on Escape Dead Island Part 2.


Dead Island's combat is basic and standard. You can just take out enemies with ease with enough space in the combat zone either close ranged with a weapon or throwing something at it instead or easily just take them out with a gun or throwable (If you have enough ammo for it of course). Escape Dead Island's combat on the other hand is a complete joke and absolute mess. Not only because the zombies especially in a group can easily just take you out in three hits, But the way your character is in combat is unbelievable you're either swinging your weapon in different directions and accidently missing like an idiot thanks to this game…

Despite the camera is mainly there in storywise to be a thing to get footage, proof, or evidence, Of the Banoi Outbreak, Narapela's Apocalypse and Geo Pharm mainly, But is a small little fun thing to use during gameplay. It is annoying when coming across an area or something that looks like it can be added to the gallery.

My thoughts on Escape Dead Island Part 1

This is usually something I don't do often but I thought I might as well cause why not, And plus Dead Island has been one of my favourite game series when it comes to a zombie apocalypse type game anyway.

Escape Dead Island was a prequel that came out in 2014 1 year later after Riptides Release from 2012 - 2013, The game takes place before the events of the first game but I will say it's not an amazing game, Now don't get me wrong the game is good and all but there's just somethings with this game just felt unusual or just wrong compared to the others we played which I will get into later. But I have played the game from start to finish and even the underwater labs dlc when I restarted the story but I will save the DLC for another time. The…

My thoughts on the 2017 Dead Island Film script

I don't like it. Anyone who is on the Reddit may remember a (now deleted) post with a 2017 script for the movie. After finally reading through it several times, I think I understand it enough to break down what I don't like.

  1. The characters are nearly all assholes, including the main cast. None of them are particularly likeable and some, like Tynan, are just straight up douches, even after some attempts at 'character growth'. The villains are pretty over the top, which I can understand due to being the main villains, but the script tries to be 'meta' and have the villain recognise that he's an asshole, but this just comes across as somewhat cringey. Some are alright, like Asher, Si, Cassie, even Jerrika is ok after her introduction with actu…

Conservation of the Born to be Wild transcript

I've been putting this off for a while, not only because it's a long quest to go through but also because someone put a lot of effort and time into transcripting the quest walkthrough from a YouTube video. Unfortunately, the quest page doesn't conform to the current quest page standardisation which means I have to rewrite this. However, to preserve this person's work, I'm leaving it here, as to not completely delete it.

The user who wrote the original transcript was 203.205.118.244 whilst 166.20.224.10 enhanced it. Unfortunately, only this string of numbers covers their usernames, but they were the two who wrote and enhanced this transcript.

Wiki time capsule

The wiki has been through a lot, and has changed over the years. The looks especially have changed, as well as features added and removed that are never to be seen again. However, not all are lost to time. Going through the unused files, there is documented photographic evidence of days gone by for the wiki and I'm going to keep them here so we can see just how it was all those years ago.


Tbh this one hasn't changed all too much. Still, a shot from WikiaWizard showing a deleted page. The modern version of the delete page does still show the reasons why it was deleted, however the area below it is radically different, with just a single line of text rather than the great box seen here.

My thoughts on the Ryder White's Campaign DLC

So I've now played through the DLC campaign twice, once on the original game and once in the Definitive Edition. I've not much intention of going back and replaying it, so now's a good time to let you all know of my thoughts. Now, the only reason I've played through this campaign is to flesh out the wiki. I would have never played it otherwise for several reasons. Since I was only playing it to get info and images for the wiki as well as a walkthrough, I'm afraid to say that I used the Dead Island Save Editor (DISE) to make Ryder White invincible, purely so that I could get the walkthroughs down as good as possible without dying to the Infected over and over again. So, with that said, here's my thoughts on the DLC.

The DLC was a solid idea,…

My thoughts on Escape Dead Island

Now that I've completed a playthrough of Escape Dead Island and have started a New Game + playthrough, I feel like I can now give my thoughts on the game. I've been up and down all over the island, being a tourist pretty much, which is a cool way of playing through Dead Island games, wandering around, discovering, visiting famous locations and taking pictures like it's some exotic holiday!

The game is certainly unique when it comes to the Dead Island series. The main gameplay is far more stealth orientated, which is an interesting and somewhat fresh concept when put next to all the other games in the series. Up until Escape (and after it), the games have been about hack and slash, using a variety of cool and wacky melee weapons to hack up zombies …

Every single Dead Island quest is now done with walkthroughs and a proper layout!

I'm bringing you some momentous news today! Today marks the day when every single Dead Island quest has got a proper layout and walkthrough! Yes, that's right, that means I finally decided to go through the remained couple of long Moresby side quests and give them a proper layout, bullet point detailed walkthrough and detailed notes!

It's been a mammoth task to do all these quests, since some of them are very long (looking at you, Pure Blood and Devil's Labyrinth!) but it was badly needed since a lot of the quest pages didn't even have a basic walkthrough, something that should really be a standard on any new quest page. However, over the course of the 7 months since I've been on the wiki, I've finally gone through every Dead Island quest (…

A look back at Dead Island: Epidemic weapons

While going through the Dead Island: Epidemic weapons to make the crafting tier pages, I've been thinking a lot about how cool some of these weapons are and it's sad how they were restricted to Dead Island: Epidemic. Like, nearly all of the high tier weapons are all very cool and unique looking, with fantastic mods that would be perfect in a main Dead Island first person game. Imagine being able to use some of those melee weapons in first person, so hack up the zombies! nearly all the firearms are also very cool, from the guns made from scrap metal to acid rifles and pistols, those guns would be a lot more fun to use than the selection we have in Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide!

I hope that, in whatever Dead Island game we get next, so…

Wiki standardisation

Hey all,


So, I've been cleaning up the wiki, added pages and rewriting article stubs, etc. Single handedly cleared off 200 article stubs and counting! Anyway, I'm writing this for anyone else planning on editing or expanding articles to make sure the wiki has a standard form for pages. As we all know, everyone has their own style of doing things and that's fine, but I want there to be a basic standard in terms of page layout, to make the wiki feel more professional and easier to navigate/read.

Below will be a basic guide on how to lay out each page depending on what type of articles they are.

Some basic rules to follow before we get into the sections is this:

  • Only link a page once per page. For example, if Infected have been mentioned multiple…

Site Enhancements and Scripting

As some of you may know, my main contributions were/are more technical than anything. I created many of the original templates on the wiki and, after becoming an admin, I created a lot of the JS.

Moving forward with the wiki's development, I've written a few new scripts and have even more planned to make us really stand out.


In my last blog post, we came to a consensus that tabs would be an effective way to differentiate between various DI games. However, after looking into the TabView extension I found several major issues with its implementation (To read my full explanation, go to Help:Tab_view).

Uncategorized files

In last few days I have been busy categorizing files that were laying uncategorized for quite long time. I´ve created some new categories and I really did not take time realising from which game these pictures come from, if its Riptide or original game. I hope that does not matter much. Those two games are practically identical in graphics with some minor changes.

I have put them all in same category. But there is a bunch of photos without any article linking to it. And I dont know what to do with them. They seem to be screenshot of bugs/ easter eggs. But page for easter eggs and bugs was removed from this wiki for a reason I cant tell myself. So I´d like to ask you all if I should mark them for deletion all or just put them into category. …

Dead Island 2 Namespace

This wiki has grown immensely over the last few years and with Dead Island 2 around the corner, I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. So in preparation for the new game, I believe we should request a custom namespaces for Dead Island 2. The main wiki is already starting to blur the lines between the DI1 and DI: Riptide, and I don't want this wiki to end up like the elder scrolls wiki.

If you don't know what i'm talking about, go to that wiki and just look around at utter chaos and disorganization that is rampant throughout the entire wiki. Trying to look at information relating to any one game and you will be give pages with no clear indication as to what game it is talking about.

Homepage logos - CLOSED

You might have noticed a lot of homepage changes recently. Mostly as an effort to make the page easier to read, and allow quicker access to the major sections of the wiki (Many thanks to Jur1z). One of the other additions, was to add the game logos to the page, and in an effort to keep the page less cluttered, black and white versions of each logo were used. The black and white versions are easier on the eyes, were normalized to match, and reduces the overall amount of red in the users face on the homepage.

Unfortunately, this benefit is completely lost on mobile, as the mobile site does not pull in any custom styles and actually removes inline styles. There are some complicated workarounds, but in the interest of keeping the page easy to e…

Rarity Classes

Want to properly style some text to show an items rarity? We've set up some simple classes you can use instead of relying on basic colors such as orange or purple. These colors are taken directly from the game, but have been added as classes so they are easier to use without having to know the hex values.

To style the content, simply wrap the information in a span, and add the appropriate class. Please note this will not affect linked items, as they will always pull the link style.


For ease of use, the styles reflect their rarity counterparts
common = white
uncommon = green
rare = blue
unique or superior = purple
legendary, exceptional or ultimate = orange

One of the first things I wanted to do, as I had discussed with some others prior, was to enable message walls. This makes speaking to and with others a lot easier. Instead of having to force a threaded list via the definition lists (the :, ::, :::), discussions will be automatically threaded like a forum (or blog) post.

Dead Island Epidemic's characters: taking the lore of Dead Island and stamping on it.

Bit of a ranty post, so please, bear with me here.

Dead Island Epidemic's a fairly new release, adding onto the already brilliant Dead Island series, adding a whole new island, plot (sort of) and characters. Except the characters are truely something to behold, and not in a good way. These characters aren't exactly what I was hoping for, especially when they're apparently powerful infectees who have been mutated by this infection but haven't become mindless abominations. This kind of ruins it for me.

You see, when someone gets infected by Kuru I expect one of two things to happen, as already established in lore. Either a. That person dies and reanimates or b. That person has an immunity and doesn't turn into one of the undead. Instead, the ga…

the images of each character would help the page vastly and the "Status" template won't give as much spoilers as the page already has. :D. I'll even put it all together if it's to much work for anyone else.

Dead Island's Future

With the announcement of a new Dead Island game, Dead Island: Epidemic and the cliff hangar left by Dead Island: Riptide, the franchise seems to have a bright future and should still be going on for many years to come. However, I've been wondering, how much do you think Dead Island will have evolved in say, a decade. Will it be a classic Zombie game with a huge fan base or will it be a forgotten, dead (heh, heh, I made a funny) series?? Please, comment your thoughts.

Hello, Dead Island Wiki contributors. As some of you know, Techland is creating a new game known as Dying Light. It will be similar to Dead Island, having craftable weapons, and there will also be free-running, similar to Mirror's Edge for any of those who played it. Anyways, I created a wiki on the game, and I wanted to know for any contributors here who would like to come and join, that'll be great. Due to the games being created by the same people, I was sorta expecting for somebody here to come check it out. If you do so, thanks!

Hey Dead Island fans!

We recently sat down for a chat with game designer/writer Chris Avellone, and talked about the specifics of making a game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Well known for his work on Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic II , and Baldur's Gate among many others, he's an authority on what it takes to make a wasteland both scary and appealing. We cover a wide range of games during the discussion, including the Dead Island series, so make sure to check out our Expert Showcase discussion with him below!

DI: R ending theory (SPOILERS)

Finished the game today and it was fun. 

I have some theories about the ending, considering the fact I heard (zombified) growling and the door knob on the boat turns quickly which leaves a huge cliffhanger. It also hints: Will there be another Dead Island? 

1: The survivors were turned into hideous beasts when the 5 immune used the mutagen. After that, hell on another islands starts again. 

2: The growling was probably from some zombies from another identical boat. 

3: The growling was just to mess with people's minds and the survivors are fine. 

4: How were survivors able to survive without food or water in six days (unless there is enough food in there to last a whole week)?

Any theories can go down in the comment section.
