    They released by mistake the developer edition on steam yesterday with weird bugs and developer commands (no clip etc), i heard they applied a patch but its still buggy as hell.

    Yep, exactly this.

    I really want to play this, but I have cancelled my preorder and will buy the game at a later date once its fixed.

    It's already fixed in America, we won't get the broken one. It's still going to be pretty consoly, but I'll forgive it that if I can have fun brutally chopping up zomblez with my guildies!

    BRAAAAIIIIINNNNNSSSSSS

    Are you buying a legit Steam copy then ?

    If so I might pre-order from Steam then if it is fixed and if I have someone to co-op with when smashing zombies.

    Our good polish chap is getting me a reduced copy. I believe it's a steam key though.

    L4d in an open world RPG enviroment with drop in and out co-op

    Great concept I just hope it's not ruined by consolisation too much.

    There is this and that... but the physics of this game are crap, they are seriously blocking any fun i might have playing it.

    Well it's kinda "borderland'y" gameplay + farcry enviroment + l4d background story. Didn't try coop, but overall it would be a good game if not for physics(minecraft costs how much? 12euro?).

    Pros: Lost of sidequests, lots of places to explore with some suprises(spoiler: like zombie porno shoot in one of the huts), quite fun zombie first person hack'n'slasher.

    Cons: PHYSICS, combat system sometimes gets annoying - if a zombie grabs you it always triggers the same animation and the same button sequence(lmb and then rmb), when zombies knock you down they always stand there and wait for you to get up doing nothin, "crafting/upgrade/repair" is a total crap. Voice acting sound quality is poor, if you play with head phones you'll notice it right away(...or maybe it's just me, dunno).

    I've only played it through the act 1, just can't stand the physics, but if physics is not the thing that you're looking for in games that cost 50euro, then it's a rather good buy, beautiful enviroment, lots of zombies to kill, lots of stuff to do and is probably quite fun playing in co-op if you dont mind those shitty character animations that you can see in the vid above. If you'd ask me, it's a fun game and all that, but totally not worth that kind of money, cuz it's just effing unfinished...

    EDIT: This review is sooo true - http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/dead-island/video/6332790/dead-island-video-review.

    EDIT: Nvm i read some stuff around about auto aim and coop issues, so i think i will skip.

    Its ok but like said already aiming is a bit piss poor playing on mouse, you can use xbox controller Anolg style to swing melee weps with more directional control which is nice but Ithought there would be more of an active dodge /block system instead of haveing to strafe around then and use kick i got the less than legit copy and there is even a multiplayer patch you can you use through steam so unless your a support THQ and rich head, my advice is it aint worth the money
    only glitches pre-patch I found was you couldn't highlight quests as active fixed now though....
