Dead Island: Riptide

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Dead Island Riptide banks on you having really loved Dead Island . We're talking love to an unquenchable degree. Did you adore Dead Island , could you not get enough of its boundless slaughter and tropical zombie abominations? Riptide hopes so, because its sole purpose is to provide exactly more of it, and nothing further. The ironic thing is, Riptide is probably going to be most enjoyed by those completely new to the series.

Dead Island: Riptide PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Dead Island: Riptide Image © Deep Silver "Dead Island: Riptide" is not unlike " Far Cry 3 " with zombies instead of enemies or animals. You are one of the few survivors on an island and you have to do a LOT to get off of it. Could it have been better? No doubt. I wish Techland and Deep Silver had taken more time and expanded on the world of "Dead Island" instead of really just offering more of the same. Maybe they'll do that with the inevitable third game.

Dead Island Riptide Review

12 May 2013
  • Summary: Dead Island Riptide says it's a sequel, but I'm having a hard time believing it. Sure, there are new things to do and a new character to play, but otherwise it feels like the same old thing.
  • Pros: Same Dead Island zombie-killing goodness, New guy John is a fun new way to play
  • Cons: Same Dead Island glitch-fest, Needlessly difficult at times

Dead Island Riptide (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
29 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Game development is hard. I'm not saying this from experience, but from a fair share of common sense gained from a world where game developers are having an increasingly difficult time staying afloat. Zombies, however, are a sure bet. Most of the more cynical denizens of the internet will tell you that Zombies are so 2009, but the only votes that count in the real world are measured in dollars and cents (and pounds and euros and yen, of course), and those votes are...

  • Excerpt: ‘sigh’ No. I’m not a big fan of the word “rehash” because it has been abused by gamers far too often and in most cases, it’s not accurate.

Dead Island Riptide review

GamesRadar
22 April 2013
  • Conclusion: "Though its story falls flat, Riptide still manages to build and maintain an immense amount of tension." "The brutal, weighty melee combat is a well-designed experience you won't find anywhere else..." "The seemingly endless variations of weapons and the quick rate at which you'll replace old ones will turn even modest looters into full-blown addicts.
  • Pros: The creepy atmosphere, The brutal, weighty combat, Killing zombies with friends
  • Cons: The cheesy characters and plot, The retread of familiar locations, Running into occasional technical issues

  • Excerpt: You can almost classify "zombie" as its own genre these days. Zombie-themed games have become so frequent as to become passé. Deep Silver's Dead Island: Riptide is just the latest in a string of flesh-eating undead titles in the past few years. Thankfully, its open-world multi-player take is still fairly fresh.

Dead Island Riptide

GameTrailers
22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Dead Island: Riptide isn't so much a sequel as it is a standalone extension of 2011's cooperative zombie shooter. Neither the cast of characters nor the Borderlands-style cooperative gameplay have changed significantly, but a new island, new enemies, and some new ideas make Riptide a noticeable improvement over its predecessor.
