Dead Island: Riptide
You know the best thing about zombie games? In zombie games, it makes sense that you never run out of enemies. Think of it like this: You invade a bunker in any standard FPS, and for some reason the evil overlords keep a million guys on the payroll? That's just bad business. But when an entire island resort falls prey to the biting beast that loves brains, it's completely logical that you would keep finding new members of the undead to behead.
But enough about the economics of evil. Time to check out the new Dead Island game. It's not called Dead Island 2, but it is a whole new experience in this dying world. Play as old favorites or a brand new character, pilot exciting new vehicles and battle various new zombie breeds across a variety of locations, including a military warship and a neighboring island to the original Dead Island.
There's also a slew of new gameplay modes, including the ability to build up your defenses and keep your hubs safe from zombie infestation - hordes of which only grow stronger with each wave. Of course, everyone knows the best way to take down a horde of the walking dead is to drive through it in a pickup truck a few times, back over the bigger ones, then sickle and shoot your way through the stragglers. That's Zombie 101.
