I should probably start by saying that I am a hugeeee fan of the first Dead Island. I've got a buddy that has put in over 100 hours with me on the first one so, needless to say, we were both psyched for Riptide. Yes, it has all the god awful voice acting, cutscenes, and is glitchy as all helll, but its just so fun. There isn't much different either but, if you're a fan and can accept all it's flaws as something that give it character and can sometimes lead to some of the funniest things, it can be thought of as a great game. Think of it as a joke and as something that is just good old fashioned fun, nt some blockbuster with an amazing story and characters that make you feel for them, and you will have fun.

Terrible game.

From the second the game started, I knew I was in for a disappointment. Admittedly, I wasn't a big fan of the first game, although, I would have at least finished that one had the game not been broken.

This doesn't feel any better though. If you're smart, you know that, if anything, this is an expansion, rather than a fullfledged sequel. If you (or the developers) think that this is a sequel... that's a joke. So, don't expect any many changes from the first game.
Voice acting is atrocious. Graphics are insulting. Gameplay is sluggish and bland. Truthfully, I don't think I have anything positive to say, other than that if you liked and or made it through the first one, then for sure, check this out, otherwise, don't believe the hype. This is a terrible, cheap game. I feel bad for anyone who paid full price for this or anyone unfortunate enough by that ridiculous Collector's Edition (I guess any quality game can get a CE nowadays)

This is maybe on level with a mediocre PSN game at best. That's how cheap it feels.
Seriously, I know you've got something else to do with your time then waste it on this.

definitely rent before making a purchase decision. this game has too many issues and flaws. the graphics are ok, the driving mechanics are stiff, the gameplay is extremely repetitive with hordes of zombies constantly respawning and taking too many hits to kill as no matter how much you level up zombies consistently stay the same damage wise and your stamina runs out constantly leaving you defenseless unless you have a gun and even with the stamina perk you have maybe two extra strikes. besides personal dislike regarding those issues it has frame rate problems where certain attacks and certain zombie movements cause the screen to freeze momentarily which isn't a problem with my system as i had read about the same issue in a professional review. and during a mission where i was to retrieve a boat which was the only boat in the area i came across an item on a rock and retrieved it then jumped back to the boat and glitched off the boat into the water and since you can't swim and just instantly drown my boat was stuck in deep water when i was revived... which made the boat inaccessible and reloading my game made no difference the boat was still stuck in deep water and there is no other in that area. that being said this game has been made with too many neglections and carelessness. only fun you'll have with this game is mindlessly hitting zombies in co-op which will not last due to the irritations of the issues. my rating 3/10 my recommendation try it as a rental and see how you feel about the game. everyone has their likes and dislikes this game just has too many dislikes for me and there isn't much of a story to it just go here and go there.
