Fairly average game, same mechanics as Dead Island
28 March 2014
Summary: Pretty much Dead Island but in another setting. The game is based on another island in the chain of islands you just tried to leave in the last game. The game starts you on a boat, taken hostage by the government because you are immune to the 'zombie' virus, along with the rest of your crew. The government wants to take you back but that storm you saw in the last game rolls in and completely obliterates the boat.
Summary: Nothing really new or interesting. An okay game to play, but it's rather bland in content and story. This is really not a new game, it's simply expanded content with not much difference than the original game.
Summary: Not much of a story just alot of zombie slashing and dismemberment.Everything respawns eventually which is good if your trying to collect more than one object but playing the same thing over and over becomes tedious.Graphics were just ok,no need for better graphics when your doing the same thing over and over.Perhaps it should be called Slash and Search.Searching I liked not knowing what you could find but it became very repetative,same places and only a few changes.I...
Summary: I had a great time with the first Dead Island, but this one was just redundant. I spent more of my time running around then I did doing actual missions. The fighting system did not change and felt more tacky then the first one. I spent most of my time kicking then I did slashing.
Summary: I am a dead island fan, Hell im a Zombie anything fan. And this game was really enjoyable just not near the length of the first. The reason I marked it 3 stars... It seems like an expansion pak, not worth the 40 dollar price tag. Is it worth 15, defiantly.
Summary: I wouldn't say it's amazing, but it's essentially the bare-bones average game. same graphics engine, story is a bit bland... so unless you REALLY LIKED the first game, and just can't get away from Dead island, this will be a lackluster game. pros- same gameplay more upgrades larger map cons- confusing and easily lost in the starting zone. rushed story after the first area almost 100% fetch quests boat gameplay is slow and nothing major etc.
Summary: Be warned, if you have a headset with 7.1 surround sound audio, be prepared to blow your ears out. Also Co Op does not work as of now which makes me extremely mad because this is the whole reason I bought the game in the first place. Dead Island Riptide is a continuation to the first one, for people who want more content. Mostly everything is the same, do not expect a whole new game, because that is not what you are getting.
