  • Conclusion: The developers were so sure I would use boats that water enemies don't even trigger if you walk right up to them in the canals.
  • Pros: There's a mission entirely about shutting off Sam B's awful damn song.
  • Cons: The nearly-immortal chainsaw maniac final boss.

Resurrecting The Dead

GIN

  • Excerpt: The original Dead Island game burst onto the scene just when the latest wave of zombie love was breaking, which was a very good time for it. And it was different from just about everything else out there.

Dead Island: Riptide

Auracore MediaWorks
5 June 2013
  • Summary: This one will leave players of the first feeling a little cheated and a lot let down, as the game fails to significantly improve upon the previous experience with Dead Island.
  • Pros: Gruesome zombie deaths, blood and gore galore, ability to import characters from the first with skills intact, updated inventory system, more carrying capacity.
  • Cons: Rehashed environments from the first game, no real improvements in game play, underuse of old zombies, overuse of some new zombies, environments purposefully made difficult to navigate, glitches in cooperative play, zombies seemed slightly overpowered, new missions seemed like a lot of the same o...

Review: Dead Island Riptide Special Edition (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
31 May 2013
  • Summary: : Dead Island Riptide can effectively be described as “more of the sameâ€� as it’s essentially its predecessor with a new island, a new character, and some play tweaks for ten dollars less, leaving it essentially the same game, which should tell you everything you need to know about if it’s for...

Review: Dead Island Riptide (X360)

GameAxis
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Dead Island Riptide is the sequel to Dead Island, taking place on yet another overrun island, but not by force. The quartet were absconded onboard a ship before it dies on its passengers and slams near another island with a tad too many zombified tropical vacationers.

Dead Island: Riptide Review

PlayDevil
16 May 2013
  • Summary: 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 for more zombie killing action and have...

Dead Island: Riptide

Square-Go
15 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Rip currents are strong currents of water at beaches. Caused by shoals beneath the waves channeling flows of water, they are able to drag people out to sea. ‘Riptide’ is a misnomer for rip current as well as an unnecessary sequel that drags the Dead Island property even further from originality.

Dead Island: Riptide

Strategy Informer
9 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Much like the original then, Riptide is casual fun when approached from the viewpoint of a group of players that aren’t averse to grieving their own kind, but don’t expect much more than a tense slog otherwise.

Dead Island Riptide Review

Game Over Online
3 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The original Dead Island was glitchy and had some significant design flaws, particularly if you were crazy enough to try to play it alone. The idea behind it was absolutely solid–an open-world action game with a lot of RPG and survival horror mixed in, where you leveled up and scavenged parts for...

2 May 2013
  • Conclusion: It's got the jankiest menu system ever created. How was this approved?
  • Pros: The new character's hand-to-hand fighting style is a hoot.
  • Cons: Watching zombies infinitely spawn, clown-car style out of a tiny wooden shack.
