Overall I think the game was ok. I never played the 1st dead Island so cant speak of comparison. How ever there was a few things about the game I didn't like. The graphics I thought were really terrible and subpar. All the characters you interact with look very similar and extremely low quality graphics. Almost liked there was no care to them. Control, movement of characters was very sluggish the game itself would lag badly at moment where a few zombie's would be. Also occasionally the sound would randomly cut off from the game

There was a few good things as mentioned with overall bad the game was still a fun game to play. If you have friends playing with you its even more fun. The weapons were pretty cool and the game is long enough to play through and actually enjoy it.

Dead island riptide started out real slow but began to speed up after chapter 3. is was an ok game but it was really repetitive. fury mode was buggy also. its a great game for people that get don't get bored easily.

Really liked this game, was a good continuation of the original dead island game. It had some new weapons and mod's to improve them. The game play itself was the same as the original which made learning how to play the game a breeze. It even had a new feature called fury that when you filled the meter you could do these really powerful knife throwing fury attacks that lasted about 10 to 15 seconds, which helped out quite a bit in horde attacks and boss fights.
On the con side since it was pretty much a continuation they could have released it a lot sooner, and could have pretty much been an expansion off the original.
