Escape Dead Island is a Survival-Mystery game set on the enigmatic island of Narapela after the events of the zombie outbreak of the original Dead Island. The story lets players unravel the origins of the zombie virus through the eyes of the would-be documentary journalist Cliff Calo. There are no superpowers to keep Cliff alive, just a few makeshift weapons against hordes of infected zombies. It will be integral to choosing wisely between stealth and combat at certain moments in the game.
Cliff Calo, son of wealthy media mogul Tom Calo, led a care-free life with little regard for the family business. However, when his father decides to hand over the company to his younger sister Heather, Cliff feels insulted and excluded. Knowing that his father desperately seeks an insight on the unexplained events on Banoi for his broadcasting channels, Cliff and his friends set sail to land the story that will prove his worth.
Being a top graduate and highly skilled in martial arts, Xian Mei was the first female recruit to join the People’s Liberation Army as part of their domestic crime squadron. She was sent undercover to the Royal Palms Resort on the Island of Banoi as part of a secret mission. Then the zombie outbreak happened and soon after she was spotted at neighbouring island Narapela…
The Island of Narapela is part of the Banoi Archipelago and located only a few miles from Banoi. Narapela is both a place and an adversary that jealously guards its secrets. As Cliff ventures deeper into the island, his adventure begins to become more and more distorted and unpredictable. Tear through a world that reacts to your every move and collect every clue you can: somewhere amid the madness lies the truth behind Dead Island’s apocalyptic outbreak.Game Features

    Escape Dead Island reviews and comments

    Translated by
    Microsoft from Deutsch
    Because of the balanced Ratings, I was very skeptical and didn't expect anything good. At the beginning of the Prologue, the whole definition was confirmed. Stargot started super bad. You just get thrown in right away. Wanted to cancel the whole thing. Which, thankfully, I Didn't do. Because the Island feeling Is very beautiful and finally gives us back what we expect from the Game. Story: Do't expect anything special. When you arrive on the Island it is still quite interesting, but the more you learn, the more disappointed and bored you become. Because there Are significantly better Stories. And an End that the whole thing then still a bit dirty. Gameplay: Ingenious Gameplay. Zombie Carnage is just beautiful. Just like some Collectable things. Amtosphere: When you first visit the island is really beautiful, just run the Time the Feeling decreases. Sound/Soundtrack: The Soundtrack has some nice Tracks. Fighting Sounds are also all as far as ok Control: All a simple Control. What has often bothered me significantly, though, is the Gun Menu. If you scroll too far and don't "hit" a Gun, then you have a Camera in your Hand instead of a Gun. And that's shitty in the middle of the Fight and can lead to Death ... Character Health: Well ... Overall, something to niedring even though I have collected a lot of drugs that add + 1 or + 3 Health, of which you don't notice anything. One dies after 3-4 Blows from normal Zombies. The whole thing is a Bit realistic, but sometimes set in Game really too low. When you've been encircled, it's almost impossible to get out alive. And dodging it isn't always the best Opponent either: mittent AI. Sometimes blind, with other opponents one is immediately heard as a before. Beautiful Design by the Opponents. Most are known from Dead Island. Which isn't bad, though. Because the whole thing takes place according to Dead Island stat and it is clear that the Zombie Species still exist. But there are also few new ones. Weapons: Shotgun, Gun and a Melee weapon. The DLC still provides you with the Assault rifle and a Wall opera. Game Time: About 6-7 Hours with the free DLC. Have found almost all the collectable things, so the Time is only realistic if you search everything or return to Places. Just why do I have a few more Hours than the Specified time? Well, it's easy to say: Because of the DLC! Overall beautiful DLC, which was also free. But the Ending breaks everything. Because a few end up with a Bug and don't get on. So did I, more than 10 times tried, but then luckily it worked out! Graphic: Borderland'S Graphic Style. That's called Comic Graphic, or what you call it. Sometimes not the best, but the Island already looked good in places. But I prefer the "normal." Unfortunately, at the End of the Campaign, you can't go back to the Island to look for the rest Of the Collectable things. In some Places you definitely can't come back and maybe for that very reason, a Return is no longer possible. Overall, a good Game with a few Mistakes. The Biggest Markel is the DLC end, because if you can't get out of the Endless Loop, you have to restart the Campaign. Which is properly shitty when you're just before the End of the Campaign. And of course the only sufficient (School Grade 4) Story.
