Good, but not great.MMMC | July 14, 2013 | Review of Dead Island Riptide
One of the big flaws in this game would have to be the story; it's pretty bland. It's a very typical zombie-like plot really, so zombie fanatics can probably guess the twists that's thrown at them. The characters are also very unappealing besides the sassy Jamaican woman, she's a boss. I couldn't help but feel that they would of had a better story if they kept the two people from the start of the game instead of shoving them off to some other place.
The fighting is pretty similar to the first game, though they made guns useful now (Yay!), but the combat can get tedious if it's not to your liking or if you play it for too long. The new Infected also help spice things up a bit.
The strength in this game, like it's predecessor, is co-op. You'll definitely want to play with more people, it makes it a lot more fun.
It's more of an expansion, as most people have said, so you might feel a bit ripped off you buy it at full price. But if you're a fan of the first game, this will please you indefinitely.
