IGN - Dead Island Riptide Takes a Cue From Call of Duty

IGN - The creators of Dead Island Riptide are adamant that it is not Dead Island 2 -- and that's very clear the moment you see it in action. The development team is extremely proud of Dead Island's success, and rather than expanding on it in surprising new ways, it's simply giving its audience more. You can think of it as an expansion pack if you like -- it's the same loudmouth characters, your saved game skills carry over wholesale, and it picks up the moment after Dead Island's ending. This is definitely a game for Dead Island fans, and the new setting, as well as the interactions you have with the world because of it, is the real draw. (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

They could have flipped it and had you either shooting live tourists or being the first zombie and watch your zombie empire grow versus the combatants.

Since the first game was the buggiest mess I ever played, I was already iffy about Riptide. That headline didn't help.
