Synopsis

Hunkered aboard a sturdy military ship and triumphantly homeward bound, Xian Mei, Sam B and the rest of their battle-weary crew are able, at long last, to breathe a sigh of relief — or so they thought. Sure, they may have quelled the wave of zombies that attacked Banoi in Dead Island, but they forgot one rule that governs the sea — beware the Riptide. Just as their rescue helicopter touches down to safety on the ship deck, a furious monsoon ravages the hopes of our unfortunate protagonists and steers them on a direct course toward imminent doom — in yet another zombie-ridden town. An undead uproar is on the horizon once more — and this time, the carnage and chaos promise to be more rampant than ever. Pack your suitcase and load your weapons for another vacation on Dead Island.

Rife with all of the mutant-zombie mayhem of the original, plus unforeseen new plot twists, challenges and features, Dead Island Riptide drags you to an all-new danger zone in the town of Henderson. Once a luxurious watering hole for the yacht-collecting upper class and tree-hugging eco-tourists, Henderson is now a storm-soaked ghost town, where only wreckage and occasional boats remain. But this port locale on the island of Palanai is also your one last hope for survival. Rally together with the surviving members of the team and orchestrate an elaborate defense using traps, fences and turrets to keep your brain-eating foes at bay. This time, the battle gets up-close and personal as a master of hand-to-hand combat joins the team as a fifth playable character. Take control of John Morgan's powerful fists and brawl against zombies like never before. Plus, collaborate more wisely with allies using new and enhanced features in co-op mode. Enhance your Dead Island experience with this Special Edition that comes with an extra character skin, a pack of weapon mods and a digital strategy map. If you can handle the Riptide, you can handle anything — presuming, of course, that you make it out alive.

As good as the original

Posted by: from Monroe, CT on 05/30/2014If you liked the first Dead Island, you will like this game. Gameplay is much the same, and that's not a bad thing. I have encountered a few new zombies, like the floater. Best zombie series on the market.

The positives don't overcome the irritations

Posted by: from Chicago, IL on 02/21/2014If you've already played the first Dead Island, you'll find nothing new here, save for a few creatures, boats, and some woman who won't shut up about canned food. ("Canned food is all we have here!") Everything else about this sequel is exactly - I do mean EXACTLY - like the first one. Even the setting is essentially the same - well, it feels the same. Still, I bought this game because I enjoyed the first one so much that I didn't think I'd mind playing it again. What I hadn't counted on is that all of the first game's weaknesses make this one just plain tedious. The writing - especially in the cutscenes and at the beginning of missions - serves no purpose other than to set up the missions, which half the time is moving stuff around. You'll give it a try, and then stop caring. Play this if you're working your way through the survival genre so you can scratch it off your list. Otherwise, put this title down and reach for The Last of Us - it's everything this game isn't. P.S. Don't let the trailers fool you! Most of the scenes are from cutscenes, not actual gameplay.

Very similar to the first game

Posted by: from Santa Rosa, CA on 02/07/2014If you liked the first dead island and want to play more, than this might be for you. The gameplay is very similar. Hoever it sometimes feals like a really big downloadable extension instead of its own game. If you liked the first game and can find it for an inexpensive price go for it.

If you were into the original, you'll be into this

Posted by: from on 01/29/2014If you enjoyed the first Dead Island, you will enjoy Riptide. Still the "go here and get me this" quest set up, which isn't bad, but does get a little repetitive. You can transfer over your original Dead Island character which I thought was pretty cool; so much like a second play through on the original but in a new world. And of course, the zombies will be on par with what ever your imported character's level is, so be warned. Graphics aren't the best at times, like when there's a ton of zombies around; but again, if you've played the first one, you'll be used to that as well. About like any other, or most other sequels, much like the original, but different. And for $10.00, you about can't go wrong. Oh, and the online multiplayer story mode with your friends is still super fun too.
