Dead Island: Riptide Review - IBTimes UK

"Dead Island: Riptide is rubbish. It's really bad. An A or maybe AA zombie game that a decade ago would have occupied shelf space between Operation Winback and World Destruction League. It has terrible combat, embarrassing dialogue and zero understanding of how to be scary. The only credit due here is to the Deep Silver marketing team, which thanks to a series of pat, melodramatic trailers has somehow managed to find Dead Island a mainstream following." (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/10

ouch! glad to see certain reviewers being tougher on sequels. If there are no major upgrades then as a consumer i need to be informed in order to save my money for a more worthwhile game.

Oh yeah, how come there's no demo for this game?

i played through the first one because the combat was fun-ish
but everything else was poor

looks like nothing else has changed

Competed the first thanks to the Fist of the North Star MOD, without it, wouldn't of played more than a few hours. Sequel looks like more of the same.

Well this game is getting slaughtered but it dosnt come at a surprise I just knew this wouldn't get good review scores I think it just look to much of the same

I completed the first which was a good game but it had a lot of flaws but in no way would I buy another one if its the same experience only offers a new map and a new character.

The original game ended up with alot of bad reviews as well but wasn't anywhere near as bad as they made it out to be. I'm going go ahead and pick this one up as well. Last game averaged about a 7....so if this is more of the same but with fixs then shouldn't it be a 7 or 8 at least. Just saying if had listen last game i would of missed a great coop experience.
