Dead Island Riptide Review

GamerNode
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.

  • Cons: Same Dead Island glitch-fest, Needlessly difficult at times

  • Summary: It starts promisingly enough: a mad dash off a sinking ship, a military coup, and a zombie horde just aching to be shown the business end of a shotgun. And then, just like that, the promise is taken away.
  • Pros: Cool blood effects and dismemberments
  • Cons: Boring, repetitive missions, Weak voice acting and dialogue, Soulless, irritating characters, Frustrating combat
