OnlySP: Dead Island took the gaming community by storm with the downright emotional reveal trailer. However, the final product was far from a compelling and an emotional experience. It simply ended up being a game similar to Borderlands that featured up-close and personal combat and zombies. That actually ended up being OK with the gaming community however, as the game sold over three million copies and has now become a franchise name in Deep Silver’s line-up of published titles. Dead Island: Riptide does little to advance itself, but is a step above the original in the technical department.
