A great sequel and great value for money!

newty182 | April 29, 2013 | Review of Dead Island Riptide Standard - PC

Continuing from where the last game left off, Riptide thrusts you back into more action packed madness from the start when playing the game in online co-op. Back to paradise and the zombie horde, with lost of looting, crafting new weapons and leveling up. New in Riptide is the team-system. In your base camp you have a group of survivors who will hand you quests, buy and sell items and offer information. The more you do for them (and you can do this as often as you like) the better they become in a fight which leads on to the next new gameplay mechanic - base defense. At set points during the adventure you and your fellow survivors will have to fend off a large Zombie assault. You can build fences, lay mines and even set up sentry guns. But if one survivor dies then it's game over which adds a healthy level of tension to the game during these stages.
