Dead Island Riptide (360) | FTG Review

FTG Writes: The first Dead Island set the gaming world ablaze with its glitzy debut trailer and cheeky in-game rap song, building the soon-to-be released zombie smasher toward unspeakable levels of hype. The final product proved that gameplay could stand above the mess surrounding, striding in what most gamers seek in a game. And like its predecessor, Dead Island Riptide counters with the same approach again, only not as glamorous nor innovative.

Now we’ve got to get this out of the way first, but Dead Island Riptide is not a sequel. Let us quell that perception and set the precedent, so don’t expect an overhaul and revamping of the original. Notice the $40-$50 price tag and realize Dead Island Riptide is merely an expansion, a half-step, and an abundance of telling signs and symptoms of “Sequelitis.” (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6/10
