Dead Island is a mix between First-person shooter, open world and Hack'n Slash games. Riptide is the same formula but with a new character, new vehicles, new weapons and new skills. Well, I think you can say it's more a DLC/extension than a true sequel, but it's still good.
Graphics are nice and the gameplay is excellent. Zombies can be really dangerous in this game. It's not the same kind of undeads you kill in games like Dead Rising. Here, in Banoi, when you're surrounded by a pack of six zombies, you better run away. Especially if you've installed the great Romero Mod that make them impossible to kill without destroying their brain! So trust me, it can get a bit scary when you're exploring the jungle alone and hear some zombies roar around you!
During the game, you have to work for a lot of NPC that just can't do things themselves (Well, this time there is an explanation : You are the only one that cannot be infected). Scavenging supplies. Find a new shelter... Typical zombie apocalypse stuff.
Riptide adds some "Siege" sequences. There are fun at first, but it can get a bit repetitive by the end of the game. Weapon mods are as good as in "vanilla" Dead Island. You got to love electrified katanas!
The story is good but a bit cliché. The multiplayer is nice. You can split between groups and do several objectives at the same time. More games should do that!
Warning, though. The game is a little buggy sometime.
Dead Island deserves more attention. Go buy this game and check its developpers new zombie games : Dead Island 2 AND Dying Light!

Super coop zombie action! Grab your friends and get those bastards to kick ass ... Riptide is a sequel to the first part of Dead Island. Some say that it was a step back from the creators of the original deed and can not cope. I personally do not share this opinion and in my eyes this game is a solid sequel. But I can not just proclaim praises. I do not know if this game was first released on consoles, but on PC it has its bugs. Here and there you will find things that are simply ill conceived. Pros: + Story, zombie + graphics + Rpg style (skill tree) + Modify weapons + A lot of side missions

If you're into zombie and RPGs this is the game for you, there are tons of different weapons you can find and use in your battle against the undead. There are also tons of different weapon mods and secret weapons you can find throughout the game. The game is open world which helps a lot and there is a decent amount of missions for you to play. The gameplay is great because killing zombies is always fun but killing zombies with modified weapons is even better.While it is basically just an expansion you can play it without playing the first one and still understand everything, everyone should give it a shot. You wouldnt be disapoointed :)

Dead Island Riptide is first-person open world zombie game. Dead Island Riptide begins where the original Dead Island left. Some tweaks new weapons, several vehicles, skills etc. There is new playable character named Logan. Some new monsters too - Bloater, Screamer and Wrestler. But the gameplay is pretty much the same as the 1st DI. The co-op is pretty good and smooth. Riptide focuses on the melee most and there is tons of blood and limb flying around. Camera mode may be off a little sometimes but it's not big thing. Boats are a thing in Riptide, zombies can be killed by them. The environment is made really good, you can explore tons of stuff.
