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."
