History

Mark Zuckerberg created FaceMash, the predecessor of Facebook, dated October 28, 2003 when he was at Harvard as a sophomore. According to The Harvard Crimson, the site is similar to Hot or Not, and use "images obtained from facebook  online in nine dorms, put two pictures side by side at a time and prompts the user to choose which one of the most sexy".

To accomplish this, Zuckerberg hacking into the Harvard computer network is protected and copy the pictures private dormitory ID. Harvard at the time did not have a "face book" (the directory containing photos and basic information) students. FaceMash attracted 450 visitors and 22,000 image on the first four hours on the air.

The site is immediately forwarded to several campus group servers, but turned off a few days later by the Harvard administration. Zuckerberg was convicted through campus security, violating copyrights and violating individual privacy, and threatened issued. However, the penalty was canceled. Zuckerberg initially expand this project in the semester to make tools of social studies to art history final exams, with 500 paintings Augusta upload to the website, with one image per page with the comment.  He opened the site to his classmates, and they began to share notes.

In the following semester, Zuckerberg began writing code for a new website in January 2004. He was inspired, he says, by The Harvard Crimson editorial about the incident FaceMash. On February 4, 2004, Zuckerberg launched "Thefacebook" which was originally located on the site thefacebook.com.
Six days after the site was launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, accuses Zuckerberg deliberately distract them so that they believe it helps them create a social network called HarvardConnection.com, while he uses their ideas to create a rival product .  All three complained to the Harvard Crimson, and this newspaper started an investigation. Three senior filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg is finally resolved.
Membership was initially restricted to Harvard College students only, and the first month, more than half of undergraduate students at Harvard are listed on this site.  Eduardo Saverin (businessman), Dustin Moskovitz (programmer), Andrew McCollum (graphic artist), and Chris Hughes soon joined Zuckerberg to help promote this website. In March 2004, Facebook expanded to Stanford himself, Columbia, and Yale.  The site is then opened to other Ivy League schools, Boston University, New York University, MIT, and slowly a few universities in Canada and the United States.

Facebook incorporated in the summer of 2004, and entrepreneur Sean Parker, who often give advice to Zuckerberg, was appointed president of the company.  In June 2004, Facebook moved its operations center to Palo Alto, California.  The company received its first investment in month from PayPal co founder Peter Thiel.  The company is removing from its name after buying the domain name facebook.com in 2005 with a value of $ 200,000.
Facebook launched a high school version in September 2005 that Zuckerberg is considered as the next logical step. At that time, the network of high schools require an invitation to join. Facebook later expanded membership requirements to employees of several companies, including Apple Inc.. and Microsoft.  Facebook later opened on 26 September 2006 to everyone aged 13 years and above with a valid email address.
On October 24, 2007, Microsoft announced that it has bought 1.6% stake in Facebook valued at $ 240 million, giving Facebook a value of $ 15 billion. The purchase by Microsoft include their rights to place international ads on Facebook. Months October 2008, Facebook announced that they will open an international headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.In September 2009, Facebook said that they experienced positive cash flow for the first time. In November 2010, according to SecondMarket Inc.., a stock private company shares, the value of Facebook at $ 41 billion (beat eBay in thin) and became the third largest web companies in the U.S. after Google and Amazon. Facebook has been targeted as potential candidates for an initial public offering in 2013.

Traffic to Facebook increased steadily after 2009. Number of visitors up to beat Google on March 13, 2010. Facebook has also become the top social networking out of eight individual markets in Asia, namely the Philippines, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Vietnam, while other brands still retain their top position in several markets, including Google's Orkut in India, Mixi.jp in Japan, CyWorld in South Korea, and Wretch.cc property of Yahoo! in Taiwan.

Company

Most of the revenue comes from advertising Facebook. Microsoft is the exclusive partner for serving up banner ads, and Facebook only serves advertisements that fall into Microsoft's ad inventory. According to comScore, an Internet marketing research company, Facebook is getting data from the visitors as much as Google and Microsoft, but slightly less than Yahoo!. In 2010, Facebook's security team began to expand its efforts to reduce the risk of user privacy. In 6 November 2007, Facebook launched Facebook Beacon which later became the failed attempt to advertise to the user's friends use "what you buy friends".

Facebook generally have a click rate (CTR) for ads lower than major web sites other. For banner ads, they receive one-fifth the number of clicks on Facebook when compared with the Web as a whole.  This means that a small percentage of Facebook users click on ads more than other web sites. For example, a user first clicks on an ad on Google search results with an average of 8% in one time (80,000 clicks for every one million searches),  while Facebook users click on ads by an average of 0.04% at a time (400 click for every one million pages).
Sarah Smith, formerly Operations Manager Online Sales up, admit that they have an advertising campaign click rates as low as 0.05% to 0.04%, and the click rate for ads tend to decline in two weeks. [evel click on the social networking rival, MySpace, compared to around 0.1%, 2.5 times better than Facebook but still low compared to other web sites. The explanation for the low level of clicks Facebook is that Facebook users are more tech savvy and use ad blocking software to hide ad, younger users more and more clever in ignoring advertising messages. On MySpace, users spend more time exploring its contents, while in Facebook, users spend their time communicating with friends and their attention diverted from advertising.

In the pages of brands and products, a number of companies reported as high as 6.49% click rate for Wall posts. Involver, a social marketing platform, announced in July 2008 that they were trying to gain a level of 0.7% click on the Facebook (10 times more higher than the level of click ad campaigns Facebook) for his first client, Serena Software, who tried to change the look of a 8.000 1.1 million visits to their sites. Studies show that for video ads on Facebook, almost 40% of users who see the video witnessed the whole, while the industry average is 25% for video banner ads.

Facebook has more than 1,700 employees and offices in 12 countries. Regarding the ownership of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg owns 24% shares of the company, Accel Partners 10%, Digital Sky Technologies 10%,  6% Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin 5% Sean Parker 4%, 3% Peter Thiel, Greylock Partners and Meritech Capital Partners between 1-2%, respectively, 1.3% Microsoft, Li Ka-shing 0.75%, Interpublic Group of less than 0.5%, a small group of employees and former employees and celebrities each have less than 1%, including Matt Cohler, Jeff Rothschild, Adam D'Angelo, Chris Hughes, and Owen Van Natta, while Reid Hoffman and Mark Pincus has a rather large holdings in these companies, and 30% remaining owned by employees, a number of celebrities, and foreign investors.  Adam D'Angelo, president of technology and Zuckerberg's friend, resigned in May 2008. Some reports claim that he and Zuckerberg started fighting, and he was no longer interested in the ownership of this company.

On 15 November 2010, Facebook announced that they have obtained from the American Farm Bureau FB.com Association with a value that is not mentioned. On January 11, 2011, Farm Bureau announced the "realm of sales revenue" of $ 8.5 million, so the purchase FB.com become one of the ten most expensive domain sale in history.
Website

Users can create profiles with photos, lists of personal interests, contact information, and other personal information. Users can communicate with friends and other users through private or public messages and chat features. They can also create and join interest groups and "favorite pages" (formerly called "fan page" until 19 April 2010), some of which are managed by many organizations for the purpose of advertising.

To prevent complaints about privacy, Facebook allows users to set their privacy and to choose who can view certain parts of their profile.  This web site is free for users and take advantage by advertising such as banner ads.  Facebook requires user name and profile picture (if any) to be accessible by everyone. Users can control who can see the information they share, is also found through the search by using the privacy settings.

The media often compare Facebook to MySpace, but one major difference between the two sites is kustomisasinya level.  Another difference is the requirement that users can set up their original identity, and the steps are not implemented on MySpace.  MySpace allows users decorate their profiles using HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), while Facebook only allows raw text. Facebook has a number of features that can interact with users. One of them is a wall, a box on every page that allows the user profiles of their friends to send a message to that user;  dab, which lets users send a "poke" each other virtual (notification telling users that they have dicolek);  Photos, where users can upload albums and photos; and Status, which allows users to tell their friends about their whereabouts and actions at that time. Depending on privacy settings, anyone who can view a user profile can also see the Wall the user. In July 2007, Facebook began allowing users to send attachments on the Wall, which is different from the previous wall limited to text content only.

Over time, Facebook added a feature to its site. On 6 September 2006, launched the News Feed that is placed on each main page and notify users of information such as profile changes, the next event, and the user's friend's birthday. This allows the sending of spam and other users manipulation these features to create events anniversary of false or a lie in order to draw attention to the profile or the campaign. Initially, the News Feed led to dissatisfaction among Facebook users; some of whom complain of being too cluttered and full of unnecessary information, while other users take it easy for users to track the activities of a person (such as changes in relationship status, events, and conversations with other users).

In response, Zuckerberg sent his apology for the failure to incorporate the features of this site that you can set your own privacy. Since then, users begin to get control over what types of information that can be shared automatically with friends. Now users are able to prevent a group of friends see updates activities such as profile changes, Wall posts, and newly added friends.

Dated February 23, 2010, Facebook granted a patent  to a series of aspects of her News Feed. This patent covers the News Feed when the link is sent so that a user can participate in activities just like other users.  This patent is pushing Facebook to take action against sites that violate its patents, such as Twitter.

One of the most popular applications on Facebook is the Photos, where users can upload albums and photos.  Facebook allows users to upload an unlimited number of photos, compared to the image storage service such as Photobucket and Flickr are limiting the number of images you can upload one. In the early years, Facebook users are limited to upload 60 photos per album. In May 2009, this limit was raised to 200 photos per album.

Privacy settings can be set for individual albums that restrict group of users who can view it. For example, the privacy of an album are arranged so that only the user's friends can see it, while the privacy of another album arranged so that all Facebook users can view it. Another feature of the Photos application is its ability to "tag", or mark the user in a photo. For example, if a photo contains a user's friends, then the user can tag friends in photos. Such actions send a notice to a friend who marked and give them the link to view the image.
Facebook Notes was introduced on August 22, 2006, a blog feature that allowed tags and planting images. Users can import blogs from Xanga, LiveJournal, Blogger and other blog services.  Throughout the week of 7 April 2008, Facebook released a Comet-based instant messaging applications named "Chat" to a number of profiles, which allows users to communicate with friends and functions just like a desktop-based instant messenger.
Facebook launched Gifts on February 8, 2007 that allows users to send virtual gifts to friends who appear on the recipient's profile. Each gift worth $ 1.00 and a personal message can be included on each gift. On May 14, 2007, Facebook launched Marketplace, which lets users send short ad for free.  Marketplace has been compared to that Craigslist by CNET, which shows that the main difference between the two is a list that is sent in the Marketplace users can only be seen by users who are on the same network as that user, while the list is posted on Craigslist can be seen by everyone.

Dated July 20, 2008, Facebook launched "Facebook Beta", ie re-design the user interfaces on multiple networks. Mini-Feed and Wall combined, profiles separated into tabs, and they are trying to make it look more "simple". After initially giving users the option to switch, Facebook began to move all users to a new page version in September 2008.  dated December 11, 2008, it was announced that Facebook is testing an easier registration process.

Dated June 13, 2009, Facebook introduced a feature "Usernames", ie the pages can be linked using a URL that is simpler as compared with http://www.facebook.com/profile.php http://www.facebook.com/facebook ? id = 20,531,316,728.  Many new smart phone offers access to Facebook via their web browser or application. Officially launched Facebook applications for the iPhone OS, Android OS, and WebOS. Nokia and Research In Motion provides a Facebook application on their mobile phone. More than 150 million active users accessing Facebook through mobile phones that are listed on the 200 operators in 60 countries.

On 15 November 2010, Facebook announced service "Facebook Messages" new. On media day, the CEO of Mark Zuckeberg said, "it is true that one can obtain surel@facebook.com address, but it's not email." The launch of these features have been anticipated while before this announcement, with some observers calling it a "killer Gmail". This system, which will be launched to all users of the site, incorporating text messaging, instant messaging, email, and regular messages, and will include the same privacy settings as Facebook service. Dubbed "Project Titan", Facebook Messages take 15 months in development.

Does this change the negative value of this game? Maybe so if you like the concept given in Guerilla. However, the journey has been directed like this of course has its own advantages. Each battle becomes more dramatic as the story is set. In addition, you also do not spend much time outside of battle. It is suitable for players who want to go into action as quickly as possible and not too concerned with the exploration of a slow storyline.

The main characteristic of the series Red Faction game is also very subtle found here. Is it? If you've played the previous series, Guerilla, surely there is one aspect of a very deep impression when playing. Yes, the environment that can be destroyed! Almost all the objects that you find can be destroyed! Especially when you destroy a large building. Destruction effects are so spectacular! However, the destruction here is not just a cosmetic effect. You can use it to defeat the enemy. For instance, enemy inside the building will be damned if the building where they were sheltering collapsed. Each structure has a construction point of the main mast. If you manage to destroy it, the building would not withstand its own weight. So cool!

Tools to reap destruction is also more varied. In Guerilla example, you initially only given a hammer that can break down the walls and knocking down buildings up close. After that, maybe you could use heavy weaponry to make it more efficient, like a rocket launcher. Now, you will be given a very interesting weapon, namely Magnet Gun. Why is this weapon so special? Point is very simple. You shoot one bullet into the surface of the building (or enemy) that can be destroyed. Then, fired another bullet into another surface. The result, surface affixed to the first bullet will be attracted towards the second bullet!
You still can not see the greatness of this gun? Well, just imagine what if the first bullet fired into the enemy first and second rounds were fired into the enemy ?. Both of these enemies will be attracted and the farther the distance will further increase the power . So also by directing debris towards building adjacent groups of enemies. If you are good at using it in battle, it is not possible you do not need to waste bullets at all to fight the enemy! Magnet Gun does not require a bullet at all and shooter distance far enough.

Weapons that you will find also varied forms. Ranging from small weapons like machine guns up to standard Plasma Rifle that could melt all the objects. Degree of destruction of weapons with explosive base is also very amazing. Moreover, when such weapons have tremendous explosive power, such as a gun that the bullet makes a magnetic vortex which pulls everything around it and blow it up. If confirmed all the objects around it will dissolve into rubble. Only just noticed the direction of your shot. Not funny when you destroy the bridge you are stepped on just because you love to see the destruction up close, right?

The new feature in this game is to anticipate the tremendous power of the weapons destroyed is Nano Repair. You can fix with an instant all the objects that have been broken into as before. So, do not worry to destroy because all you can fix again! In fact, in mid-game you can shoot Nano Repair to fix remotely. Very useful for repairing the building that became the ammunition you when using the Magnet Gun! Simply hide and throw the building into an enemy. Then, return the building back to normal and repeat the same attack!

The character you play, Darius Mason, will also develop the ability over the course of the game. To strengthen its combat capability Mason, you must collect points Salvage first. Points are almost the same role with the money. Having collected enough (typically 1000 points), you can buy new skills. Skill is also divided into two parts, namely passive and active skills. Passive Skill work immediately after you buy and do not need to press any key to get the advantage. Examples of this type of skill is to strengthen the resilience of the body from attacks, reinforce the assault guns, and accelerate time to reload the weapon, while the skill is active in the field requires activation. Examples are making shields and firing force to the front to destroy all in its path.

All weapons and tremendous skill is certainly not useful without a commensurate enemy challenges. Apart from the human face of the enemy, you will also face the enemy in the form of monsters. Life-threatening form of Mars has a variety of forms and strengths. In fact, there are some who must be destroyed by using heavy weaponry. In addition, you can also use the big robots fighting with terrible weapons. Only the destruction left by the robot!
This game does not give the game an extra in the form of a secret that you can find. However, you will get a New Game Plus feature after successfully completing the game. New Game Plus give you access all the weapons that have been owned, skill, and money from the last save data. In addition, you will also get some very interesting unique weapons and access Cheats. Cheats This feature does not just give you help to simplify the game. You have to buy large amounts of money to get unlimited ammunition, new powerful weapons, and change the display style of game.

Additional Another very interesting are the two other game modes, namely Ruin Mode and Infestation mode. In Ruin Mode, you will be challenged to create maximum destruction and all that will be counted into the points. Players who managed to get the biggest points will enter his name in the record. While Infestation Mode asks you to survive as long as possible against endless monsters attack! Interestingly, you can play this mode with three of your friends!

Many interesting things can you find in this game, ranging from total destruction, powerful weapons, until the robots are cool. If you do not mind some changes in the form of a game than previous games, Armageddon will give much satisfaction to you!

Conclusion

Manipulation of the environment to your advantage! Devastating effects that can affect the enemy to make each battle more exciting! Not to mention coupled with powerful weaponry and character development through skill. All that makes Red Faction Armageddon into third person shooter that you should not miss!

Immediately, everyone began to pounce on each other and turned into a beautiful holiday survival. Now imagine you are on the island dream!

The theme that is brought survival horror Dead Island may have sounded in the ears of ordinary gamers. Especially for veteran players who have played all the horror-themed games. However, Dead Island has a uniqueness that is not owned by any other similar games. What is it? This game is a Action Role Playing Game! All the elements that complement ARPG games here. Discover the story is more complete in the fun!
Marriage FPS and ARPG

When viewed at a glance, Dead Island is no different to ordinary First Person Shooter games. You play this game of first person perspective and body parts that you can see only gun that was taken. Then, where ARPG element in this game? You can find it on various objects that can be found in the game and character skill system. What about the various statistical values ​​that characterize the typical RPG? Whether it can be found also in this game? Yes, statistics are applied fairly well in the weapon you use.

Before starting to discuss more about the weapons and skills, you'll want to get a general overview in advance about the form of the game Dead Island. The game begins with the selection of characters which are divided into four options. You can choose Xi'an sharp weapons expert, champion Logan throws a weapon, Full with the expertise to use firearms, and Sam B were able to make a blunt weapon to be deadly. Each character has its own style of playing and certainly a different skill.

Play area in this game are basically free to explore. You'll get a variety of tasks from other people who survive and trying to get out of the island. However, the task was not to be done now. You are free to browse through all corners area of ​​the game and find a variety of interesting surprises. In fact, you can meet others who are in need of assistance through this way. However, a region has a limited area of ​​the game. A warning will usually appear once you cross the line that has been determined.

Your journey is not merely using the legs only. You can also find a car that can be used for various things. For example, some missions require you to carry heavy things that make escape impossible. At that time, the car is the right media. Moreover, the position usually takes the object and the person who requested it quite far apart. In addition, the car also became a fun means of transportation to transport other players. Yes, you can play along with three other players via online connection (Steam).

Why play with other gamers? Whether playing alone is not recommended? Playing solo is actually not a problem. Some areas are very difficult when played alone, but not impossible. However, playing with different characters have a distinct advantage. Therefore, the skill that is in each character will support the ability of the characters around him! More details can be found in the discussion about the skills later.
Let Collecting All Weapons!

Variety of weapons and objects that you can find is one of the strengths of this game. Starting from the simple to the sword blade with stunning effects waiting to be discovered. By their very nature, the weapons can be classified into four types, namely sharp weapons, blunt weapons, firearms, explosives and weapons. If you pay attention to character introduction above, any type of weapon as if it was prepared for each character. So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of such weapons?

Weapons sharp when viewed at a glance just sounds more superior than a blunt weapon, right? How not? Weapons can be cut sharply, while the blunt weapons can not. Apparently, not so. Sharp weapon it could cut off the zombie's body and make it part of the body can not be used. However, blunt weapon can also be used to immobilize a zombie body parts in a way to break it! When you immobilize the zombie's hand, he can not attack with his hands. So also with his feet, which would make it fall and crawl. However, you should be aware; zombie can still attack you with how to bite!

Firearms can also be used in the same way. Users are also more secure from attack because he was attacking zombies from a distance. However, bullets for firearms are very hard to get! There are no zombies that carry bullets and only human enemies with firearms are brought! Fortunately, you will be able to create your own bullet. Then, what about the explosive weapon? This one type of weapon is disposable. So, you throw it into the enemy and enormous destruction will immediately scatter the flock of zombies attacking you. You should be careful when using these types of weapons because of the effect of local damage caused. Do not until you get an explosion!

As mentioned earlier, the statistics that characterize a typical RPG can be found on the weapon. Typically, a melee weapon (sharp and blunt weapons) statistic divided into Damage, Force, Durability, and Handling. While firearms consisting of Damage, Accuracy, Rate of Fire, and Reload Speed. Damage indicates the extent of damage from such weapons. This point plays a major role in activities to eradicate zombies and must always be considered. Therefore, the zombies have a level that will continue to increase as your level! So, do not expect to kill zombies with guns level 10 to level 5! Force statistics are very important for blunt weapons. Therefore, a large force would give a great impetus to the enemy and threw her down!

From all these statistics, another point to consider is Durability. Melee weapons will be less resistance every time it is used to attack the enemy! Thus, these weapons can be discharged resistance and loss of strength! Damage Not only are affected, the effects of weapons which you can attach to it also will be lost! Always pay attention to this point!

Weapons that you find can be strengthened through workshops tables! This facility can be used in addition to strengthening the weapons can also improve the resilience of the weapon. Always look for the table this valuable weapon whenever you begin to lose its value. All weapons in the game can be upgraded three times. Every time he improved his ability, the statistics also increased drastically.

In addition to upgrade weapons, workshop tables can also be used to create new weapons. To make it, first you must have the recipe first. Usually, you can find recipes for weapons through a gift from completing the task (Quest) and from the hidden box. Once you have the recipe, then you need to have weapons and materials requested in the recipe. For example, to add the effect of fire on a baseball bat, you need (of course) a baseball bat, fabric, oil, fire. All objects that you need can be found from the enemy, the game environment, and can be purchased. Effects resulting from the attack of homemade weapons is of course more powerful than ordinary weapons! Depending on the effect that you provide, the enemy is exposed to attack these weapons can be electrocuted, burned, and vomiting!

Another thing about the weapons you need to know is the color code. This code indicates the scarcity of such weapons and simultaneously signifies strength. The more rare a weapon, the more powerful. Usually, the weapons that you find white. This color is the lowest level and indicates a common weapon found. Others again when he started the blue and green! Weapons with this color typically have higher stats than similar weapons. If lucky, you can find a weapon with the color orange which is a rare weapon, and you should watch carefully!
Skill Need to Survive!

Each zombie is killed and quests completed will give you the value of experience. Well, after reaching a certain amount, this value will increase the level of your character. The advantage of the increase this level of course to strengthen your character. In addition to increasing the resilience of the body and increase the attack power, you will also get a skill value. Use this value to buy a skill that will definitely help you to survive. In general, the skill is divided into three parts, namely the skill to Rage, attack skills, and supporting skills. Skill Rage is useful to help you gather rage gained when killing an enemy. Then, the rage is you can use to issue a special attack is very powerful for a limited time.

The next skill is useful to strengthen the attack. Typically, the skill of this section adapted to the character you use. For example, Xi'an will strengthen the attack with sharp weapons and Sam B can make an attack with a deadly weapon dulling. Supporting skills useful to help you in the not fight, such as enlarging the number of weapons you can carry, enlarge Durability weapons, the ability to open the locked chest, and give value to experience more of a conquered enemy.

Skill tree that you can learn is divided into several levels or Tier. To open an existing skill underneath, you must complete in full a skill in Tier before. Points to meet the needs of a variety of skill as well. Normally, you need three points to meet a skill. Although there is also a skill that requires only one point only. Unfortunately, Tier advanced open only when skill in Tier previously had a full course, not based on the number of skill points that have been allocated. So, you have to give up points in skills that are not required to open the next Tier.
Zombie Hunting is time!

Zombies in Dead Island is not only slow and easily killed. Various zombies you will encounter in your journey later. First, a zombie who will accompany you walk slow. However, the longer the line with the increasing level and region, the zombies will run towards you! In fact, they often emerge from unexpected places, such as from behind! To avoid this sudden attack, you should use a headset or speakers are pretty good. So, you can determine the position of a zombie from his voice.

In addition to regular zombies, you will also find special zombies who have power far above the others. At first, you will find Thug zombie that can not be dropped with kicks and blows on the feet. In addition, damage from the blow he gives is also very large. In fact, your character can be thrown far enough to the floor! To fix this, you should immobilize both hands first. Then, you will meet with the other special zombies are more dangerous, as Suicider that can blow away when it dies and Ram which will run towards you crashed yourself!

Any damage resulting high level zombies and special zombies is quite large. Therefore, you must find the right tactics to defeat every enemy. For example, to defeat the Thug with ease, you must often kick him and when he's angry roar, immediately attacked his hand! So also with considerable Suicider thrown with a sharp weapon to make it explode and Ram to be lured to crash into the wall. Variations in the attack and offered a variety of enemies tension makes Dead Island is very interesting to play! Moreover if you can play it with your colleagues.

Conclusion

Zombie games free adventure with herbs and RPG elements are very rarely to be found. Especially in this game, you are not given time limit. So, you can easily and freely explore the game world and collect the weapons that appear randomly. Although there are few things less comfortable for some players, such as broken arms quickly, Dead Island is able to provide the maximum enjoyment of play. Moreover if you can play it with your colleagues.
