Dead Island: Riptide doesn’t add much to spice up the basics of the game. If you’re still a fan of the game’s basics, then feel free to add a couple stars onto the rating. There’s a whole new map to explore, and an infinite number of things to kill there, and new weapons to break. If you’re new to the game though, the original is a lot cheaper and you won’t miss much without the new features. And for the people who are already burned out, give it a miss.
