Dead Island Riptide: D.O.A?

Maul Squad: "Dead Island Riptide is a game that I wanted to hate but I just couldn't. I laughed at the terrible character models when they didn’t match up with the shoddier voice acting from my character. “Is that a rock!” my character exclaimed five seconds after half a mountain sailed past the ship. I couldn’t hate it though. If you ignore the awful voice acting, stupid quests and bland story you’ll find yourself exploring the open world without meaning to – and enjoying it." (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Its like Deep Silver or Techland or w/e developed this game didn't even listen to the feedback of the first game. The is one of the first series(outside of MMOs) that I encountered so many fetch quest. It almost like there QA team are non-existent. Some of the things people encountered should've been picked up by the QA team/testers. I get that they are pushing for online co-op but they could've at least included local co-op/splitscreen.

Overall this game should've just been a expansion and should've been delayed until a month or two. DeepSilver will have a time on their hands after this crap sequel. If you can't trust them to make a decent open world game how can you trust them to make a MOBA?
