Digital Journal Review: 'Dead Island: Riptide' is the same game with a new title

In theory; 'Dead Island: Riptide' should be a great horror game with an open world environment and RPG elements. Instead Techland found a way to make such a game incredibly boring, again! (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 1/5

Why are people knocking it for being the same as the previous title. Though the previous title was good. I don't feel like being that guy that points to Call of Duty since the creation of the Modern Warfare series...but..yeah.

I have riptide and its fun, and I never played the original. By the way nothing is more fun then smacking a zombie in the head with a wooden plank you ripped up from a boardwalk. Name another game you can do that on. Or deciding weather to use either a flare gun, or nail gun when your good baseball bat has broken from crushing in Zombie Skulls.

Yup clearly a 1/5 title because it has more of the same sweetness its previous title had. ._.

See the problem here is you used call of duty as a example and that's the exact reason most core gamers have been blasting call of duty for years. I don't think the game is bad to the point of being a one out of five. But they are pretty close to being considered a cash grab. Hopefully if there is a third one thay make it better and not same game different story.

I'm really not getting the hate, I keep seeing review after review parroting "It's more of the same" Umm.. please tell me any next part in any game that isn't?

If you took the time to actually play the game you would see that there are new things added just like any other game that has a continuation.

I will simply say this, if you liked the first one (like I did) you will like this one, if you didn't why would you even bother with the next part?

And for God's sake LEARN how to use a rating system, the only way (IMO) a game could earn a 1/5 (or 2/10) is if you stuck the disk in and it literally crashed in your face.

It's ok for Call of duty to do it and POkemon but god forbid a zombie rpg game does this....shit hits the fan...

The game sees a lot of improvements over the original..and honestly no one plays the game for the voice acting or story...they play it for the coop...the fun and the zombie slaughtering...
I also find it creepier than the first!

8/10 from me:)....also it's only 40$ compared to a full retail game of 60$....which all cods come out at...and 40$ is the price tag of a new and old pokemon game.... so yeah....

Get over it ppl! If you look past your snobby attitudes you can really enjoy this!

by giving the game 1/5, just goes to show why so many review sites have no credibility when it comes to there reviews, just shut your shit site down, obviously you cannot give neutral reviews on games without adding that biased within you
