Looking for a new open world shooter...liked Fallout, but it wasn't really a shooter. What are the shooting mechanics like in Dead Island?
Dead Island is a great game but its not really a shooter, there are guns but most of the time you will be smashing zombies with mele weapons. Easy 40 hours for a first playthrough and in co-op its outstanding.
I would say stay away from Rage, looks amazing but overall a poor poor game
Dead Island is by far the better game. RAGE is poor.
Its not so much about the shooting in Dead Island but more about the melee attacks, which are suprisingly interesting and fun to use.
Dead island isn't shooter at all really, it's fps melee.
RAGE I was really impressed with, though it is short, and all the shooting is in linear corridors. But the gameplay is awesome, the shooting and AI are very impressive.
Rage isn't open world(**) but its an excellent shooter. Between 10 and 14 hours depending on the difficulty level. (recommended to play at least on hard as its a very easy game). don't buy on PC if u have an ATI card.
I assume you've played Borderlands?
(**) its a set of corridor levels linked with dull (but short) driving bits and dull game characters who give you the missions.
