Dead Island Riptide Review | Saving Content

Excerpt: "The main missions are of a different variety though, forcing you to into new locations, then backtrack quite often. Environments are more native, feeling less inhabited. The new defense missions are sparse, but are intense and frantic affairs that really add to the experience. One of the early sieges from the zombie horde comes at a time where the entire town is engulfed in flames while waves of zombies of increasing strength attack. It certainly breaks up the aforementioned fetching.

Dead Island Riptide is priced like a budget title, and while at times it may perform or act like it, it still has its own identity and story with new areas to explore and weapons to craft. Riptide is to The Lost World as Dead Island is to Jurassic Park. It’s a different island, but with the same problems as before. That said, Riptide is my preferred Dead Island experience. There’s just more variety and fun to be had from lessons learned from the 2011 original. A word of caution to those looking to open their wallets to a true sequel, should probably wait." (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
