IGN - Most antagonists in fiction border on cartoonish. They want you dead, or an organization dead, or the world dead. They usually want things dead, and we rarely understand why. Ryder White was anything but what one might call a "solid dude." The villain behind your plight in the Dead Island campaign was a lunatic, but he was a madman with motivation. I sunk a few hours into Ryder White's campaign, a $10 DLC pack coming this month, to see what the man was made of. The new story put me in the unusual position of playing as Dead Island's antagonist prior to the events of the core campaign. Additionally, this is the first instance of single-player only gameplay in Dead Island, and it's obvious why: We're looking at the downfall of one pretty solid dude.
