Dead in the water

  • Summary: An exercise in apathy, neither solid nor liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit "meh," really. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

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.
  • 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.

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...

Dead Island Riptide

GamesRadar
22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Dead Island doesn't exactly have a sterling reputation. Techland's open-world zombie adventure was rife with game-breaking bugs when it launched in 2011, so we couldn't help but approach Dead Island Riptide with a healthy dose of cautious optimism.
  • 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

Dead Island: Riptide is a zombie game still searching for brains (review)

VentureBeat
22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Zombies are everywhere these days, making it harder and harder to actually use them in a new way. Publisher Deep Silver launched Dead Island in 2011, and the title tried to make its mark by combining first-person-shooter and role-playing elements.
  • Pros: It’s the complete zombie experience Zombie-related media tends to feature a handful of tried-and-true story beats related to living through the apocalypse. A small group of survivors will almost always encounter other survivors. They’ll go scavenging for supplies. Maybe they’ll get in a vehicle a...

Dead Island Riptide Review

Crowdedbrain
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I think DIR could have been a great coop game but it fell well short on providing a stable network environment and this really spoilt the game for me because I wanted to play the main storyline with a buddy.
