onPause Review: Dead Island Riptide

onPause writes:

Even though I have these gripes with the game, Dead Island Riptide had me hooked again. I love the open world gameplay, the weird but ironically charming characters and the first person zombie slashing, using the weapons I crafted or got from beating a massive zombie berserker. Techland has managed to rope me back in and take a deep dive into a beautiful zombie infested tropical island that I couldn’t stop looting. If you loved Dead Island then Riptide is a game you will want to jump into as it feels just as fun, addicting and rewarding as its predecessor.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds interesting. I really liked the first one. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

The new wolverwine-like character seems awesome!

You seem awesome. *scoff*'re right though, he does seem awesome.

I know I'm awesome *stares at self in the mirror*

but on a serious note, I'm wondering if that's going to lead to player selection bias. He pretty much has a badass running kick that the others can't rival, and I'm wondering if people would really tough it out with the traditional characters when this new guy seems to be able to plough through armies of zombies.

I'm pretty sure saves of your character from the first DI carry over in some fashion. Although no one's seriously invested in their character (like with ME), it's probably easier for players to stick with the character, equipment, etc. that they had.

Edit: I haven't played Riptide so I'm not positive of what's carried over. Only have this:

You can import your character at the start.

The game isn't a full numbered sequel and also 50 bucks at retail, some concessions can be made here.
