    If the coop factor is on par w/ the L4D games, this is a no brainer.

    When it comes to these type of games, coop is everything. Being able to relax w/ a bunch of mates and have a good time is what makes L4D a blast to play.

    Must have this game. I don't care if it's the worst game ever, With visuals like that, killing zombies will be a blast.

    I don't care really, any half decent first person shooter with zombies will do the trick. But more with a sense of The Elder Scrolls series for example. Imagine L4D combined with TES in a modern environment. I always fancied FPS RPG games like System Shock 2 or Deus Ex. It just has that extra depth and immersion that regular shooters just don't have.

    I'm looking forward to this game. I hope it will come soon and that it will be good.

    I might be forced to upgrade my video card, just to enjoy this game at max settings and with a high fps.

    Along with Battlefield 3 :(

    Well there were mediocre and terrible games with zombies before though. There is one zombie game that i'm looking for but i just can't seem to find its name but i remember i was playing the demo of it years ago. It was made by some Russian developer. At least the demo started in some alley next to some dumpsters. Then you pick up a pipe on the ground. And i think you get a flashback of some guys interrogating you. I remember it was a city and there were zombies all over it. A burning truck in a yard between buildings. I also remember that there was a body deformation engine where you hit zombie with that pipe over the head and the head fell of off while zombie continued to chase you. Same applied to legs and arms etc. Anyone knows what the game was?

    Keeping my eye on it, the cool trailer that was released doesn't sell me on gameplay.

    doesn't look to have the same atmosphere of lfd 2, for some reason with the environment being what it is it looks less like a post apocalypse nightmare and more like a vacation with dead people

    my point is it's either gonna be released as a sort of parody game or its gonna be really funny, if not it kind of missed the point of zombie attacks

    You're saying it's impossible for zombie attacks to happen in vacation resorts? Well.. you are correct since zombies don't exist, however if they did exist I doubt zombies have the capacity to rule out vacation resorts as a place to get brains due to some morality issue or something. :ohwell:

    i kind of expect zombie games to sort of have an evil feel to them, i mean looking at zombie games over the last few years is hard to find one where the majority of levels don't take place at night

    If I were a zombie I'd rather be a zombie at some beautiful island paradise than some dirty graphical representation of Pittsburgh or something. Seriously though, I don't see a problem with it, it's creative. I see no reason to make a zombie game that looks like all others and take place with the same scenery around you. I like the fact that there is evil lurking even though things look pretty. :)

    This game looks fantastic. I enjoyed Left 4 Dead and this looks like it will be much, much better.

    cheesy the point is that it is this beautiful, serene setting over-run by brain
    eating zombies, it's out of the ordinary. that doesn't make it wrong or necessitate that
    the developers make light of the situation. it's an interesting setting for an established
    concept.

    i look forward to it greatly :)

    I highly doubt it. These are the same developers as "Call of Juarez". Expect the same quality.

    Same engine as "Call of Juarez". Looks good in screens but not so good in execution. Something tells me this will be riddled with bugs. Also its not an interesting setting IMO. They have done zombie movies in malls and a dozen other places that in the psyche are "safe". Even L4D did a carnival level. Its become a common/cheap shock trick to bring massive gore to a familiar setting. Original IMO would be something like zombies in the old west or maybe even in the times of Rome. That would have been awesome. Island of the Dead will be a cheap thrill ride full of cheap tricks..........anyway I hope I'm wrong. I fucking LOVE killing zombies!
