Dead Island Riptide
If you liked the first game, buy this one!!
I was on the fence about this one at first due to mixed reviews on it. I picked it up used in case i didnt like it, but i gotta say it is a good game specially if you liked the first one. You can start the game fresh or import your character from the previous game, which is cool and you can level up to 70, but whatever weapons you had dont come over. I found the story more entertaining, lots more quests to do, and its not as repeatious. Some new weapons, few new enemies. Go pick it up
This game is just like the first... AMAZING
This game is just wow.. this game lived up to its hype just like the original. There are very few bugs encountered in this game, the graphics are just GORGEOUS. The AI actually works unlike some games. The gameplay feels really smooth. This is a game that will be totally worth money spent.
Nothing Impressive In This Game!
Honestly this game is not much different than Dead Island 1, other thing that is slightly different is the use of boats and a few new weapons, oh and one new character! The game has many bugs and that's what honestly ruins the gaming experience! I will say the most exciting part of the game for me was the beginning quest : The Storm! besides that it is just stupid, AI are very hard for some reason and they start you out level 15 don't get me wrong its cool but it isn't cool when you don't have any useful weapons against a horde of overpowered zombies! This game would be good to buy whenever it is down to $20.00, do not defiantly pay $50.00 like I did, biggest mistake ever!!!
This Game Sucks
I was told I needed to buy this game. I spent 40 bucks on a game that I wouldn't pay 5 for todays generation the graphics suck ,and the game play is impossible if you play solo like I do. I think this game is horrible!!!!!
Big Waste Of Time
I absolutely loved the first Dead Island so I was very excited when this came out. Now that I've been playing it awhile it just keeps getting more disappointing. There are lots of glitches in this game and I wouldn't recommend it for that reason. I have been stuck on the same mission for a couple days because the game keeps freezing and their tech support is laughable. They tell me the only way past this glitch is to create a new profile and while that sounds easy it's not. When you do that it depletes pretty much all of your weapons including special ones, and all of your inventory including medkits and parts. I called back to tell them this and Deep Silver couldn't tell me how to create a new profile without losing all inventory because according to them that doesn't happen, and they hung up on me. This game is worthless because with these kinds of problems you may never get to beat the game and play repeatedly like the first and if you do it will cause a great deal of frustration. It's a $50 piece of junk, I wish I wouldn't have wasted my money.
Mediocre zombie killing game.
I never played the original but I heard this one fixed some of the main issues from the first game. Sadly I did not enjoy this game very much, it just seemed boring and clunky. I don't mind repetitiveness as long as it's fun, but the endless horde that seems to respawn constantly makes the game focus on the combat so much that it shows how clunky it really is. The story is ok but pretty bland. graphics are pretty bad with some nice environments. So in the end this game really is only fun if you have somebody to play with, if you playing by yourself I would stay clear of this game.
This was one of the better sequels I've seen. The story continues well throughout the game and offers 13 chapters that keep the game flowing for many days. Even after beating the game it offers a different twist, by selecting a different character and finding they have different strengths and weaknesses.
The graphics are great, and if you are one of those "apocalypse zombie" people- you'll love killing these zombies as the game offers three ways of death (re-death?) killing with your arsenal, driving over them with the trucks, and driving over them with the boats.
This one rates up there with Dead Space, and Crysis!
Everything I asked for!
I love this game yo. This is a great game and better than the first one, which I freakin love, new zombies, more Mods, great story.... This is a game that I definately recommend along with the first game.
Not even short
This game is as long as the 1st one. There's no exact length for any game i could play a game for 1 year and it would be a years playthrough we create our own lengths of game the guys comment before me didn't not complete everything it took me about 40 hours because i'm a completionist. if you want a true long game then try the Elder Scroll's games.
Good game, just feels short like a DLC
The gameplay is great. It doesn't quite immerse you like Far Cry or something like that, but it is a somewhat fast-paced and frightening experience! The sound is very creepy indeed. About graphics, it doesnt quite nail interaction with objects (blowing up buildings, burning trees, etc). I do feel like this is a SHORT GAME. I went through 40% of it in 1 day. Definitely should of worked on a longer story. BUT, this is a great game. The combat is about the same as Dead Island, which I seem to like. Thats another thing about it being "DLC". the game is very much the same as Dead Island. It's just slightly fixed up. 8/10 RATING
