Dead Island: Riptide

 

The opening segment of Dead Island: Riptide is monstrous, and not because it involves a stereotypically sleazy exec talking about bioweapons. Not because of zombies either. In fact, aside from the hideously ugly cut-scenes that seem to be animated in...

The first Dead Island was an interesting breath of fetid air, and one that made for a novel take on zombie survival. Dead Island: Riptide takes all of the worst elements of that title, removes some of the better ones and adds a few features that are...

Dead Island: Riptide Review

 

Dead Island was a sleeper hit with fans last year. Is Dead Island: Riptide the sequel fans deserve?

In the end, Dead Island: Riptide is much like the zombies it portrays. It meanders about, bumping into everything, and occasionally it finds some meat to sink its teeth into. Then it slowly moves on to find the next scarce meal. Missing some parts, it...

Dead Island R.I.P. (tide).

I enjoyed "Dead Island: Riptide" despite myself. Its a fun loot grind and leveller, but it does nothing new. It's no better than the first game, and is in many ways worse. That isn’t to its bad, but there is no reason to buy this unless you are gagging...

Riptide brings absolutely nothing new to the experience of the first game. If anything, it just piles on new frustrations.

Initially, it looks quite pretty; Running zombies over and chopping their arms off is sorta fun

You’ve already played this; Everything feels rushed and slightly broken; Fetch quest after fetch quest after fetch quest; Death is of no consequence; Not at all single player friendly

Dead Island: Riptide review – it’s a rip all right

 

The zombie game that defied the critics is back, but not with a full sequel. So is this new Fallout-inspired side story really worth the telling?

The premise still has obvious appeal and the dynamic weather and improved melee combat is a step forward. Online co-op is fun with friends, especially with the new mission type

The controls, gunplay, script, and voice-acting still feel like a no-budget fan mod. Role-playing elements remain simplistic. Very expensive for such a minor expansion

It’s clearly been made in a hurry and with no more care than the deeply flawed original, which means only the truly zombie-obsessed should apply.
