Deep Silver: Dead Island: Riptide isn’t Dead Island 1.5, yet it’s not considered a sequel

Dead Island: Riptide’s creative producer Anthony Cardahi defends the recently-released Dead Island sequel against the accusation that it’s just an expansion pack of the first game. However, Cardahi admits that Riptide’s not considered a sequel as the focus wasn’t on “innovation.” (Dead Island Riptide, Deep Silver, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sooooo... It's a really big expansion pack...?

Pretty much. Standalone expansion with optional save transfer. Its not the first of its kind by any means but some people don't like the idea--PC has seen this time of game the most though.

Well whatever it is I'm certainly enjoying slaying some zombies with my friends. Xian ftw

Apparently people disagree with you enjoying a game you bought smh
I thought people already knew it was an expansion pack as soon as they mentioned you can carry over your character's level.

its DI 1.75! DI 2 for next gen.

I can forgive them since they didn't sell it at full retail price, £28 for a pretty big expansion

How is it not a sequel? It picks up right where the first left off, does it have to be called DI 2 to be considered a sequel?

I'm loving it, I do hope the next entry in the series is overhauled though and improved for next gen.

I actually really like these games. They do have some problems with connecting with people but for the most part I had a lot of fun playing co-op with people. I actually met some really cool people playing this that are now part of my friends list for future games. Just goes to show you never know when you will meet like minded people these days XD

Loved it! More of the same is good for me but I would love to see it improved with the sequel.
