    So lets see.... I really liked the original Dead Island, found it to be a consummate time wasting video game, where I had plenty of fun just killing zombies, doing the silly fetch missions, making weapons, exploring the island, and trying to believe the story had any merit. All in all, it was loads of fun that didn't take itself to seriously, which I found to be very enjoyable. I don't need every game to be epic and complicated.

    Along comes Dead Island Riptide, and whaddya know? Its more of the same. And that's just great.

    Riptide is like that old pair of shoes, comfortable, fits great, and just makes your day. Its also not the most fashionable shoe, and may be a bit worn out. But when you reach for them, you know its going to feel right. The story is a continuation of the virus conspiracy of the original Dead Island. Zombies are aplenty, as are weapons, silly characters, as well as the run down landscape, cities, swamps and scenery.

    There are some new monsters that are introduced in this installment, including a pseudo boss that has a giant stone hand and can crush you instantly. There's also the DI version of the drowner (Witcher anyone?), a zombie that sleeps face down in the water till you get near them. And all the favorites from the original return for DI's zombie greatest hits, like the butcher, the infected, and the ram.

    The weapon crafting is pretty much the same, as is the collecting of junk to make them. There's a bit more in the firearms department this time, but I'd rather use the old cane knife with the shock mods anyway. There are many more mods, blueprints, and general gadgets this time, but none are particularly special.

    I wouldn't say it's amazing, but it's essentially the bare-bones average game. same graphics engine, story is a bit bland... so unless you REALLY LIKED the first game, and just can't get away from Dead island, this will be a lackluster game.
    same gameplay
    more upgrades
    larger map
    confusing and easily lost in the starting zone.
    rushed story after the first area
    almost 100% fetch quests
    boat gameplay is slow and nothing major

    hope this helps some people on the edge on buying DIR

    No I have not finished the game, these are just what I felt after 5 hours of playing it. If my opinions change I will post on that as well!

    The game starts off where the last one left off, with a bland story and really bland characters.... but that's really not that important the story serves it's purpose of getting your character from point A to B for whatever silly reason. It is very much like the first in many ways, the weapons, loot, crafting etc... all more or less the same with some new things added (Not the least of which is a new character).

    You start the game at level 15 if you do NOT import your character from the first game. So right off the bat you get some skill points to work with even if you have never played the game before. You go through the games built in controls tutorial that's in every game (you know, crouch under a pipe, jump over another pipe etc...) then you get to the new island. All the stuff from the first game is still here, there is crafting, modding, repairing of weapons etc... you can upgrade them to make them stronger or sell them to shops for more money to repair and upgrade. Which I find a lot of fun. The game also was kind enough to give you mroe workbenches in areas farther from the main hubs.

    The new character is nice, he is an Australian Ex-Military who specializes in fist weapons and uses a staff for his fury skill (Not sure why to be honest). He is the character I chose to use because I liked him more than the rest. Plus I just like both staff weapons and Australian accents.

    So I'm now going to go over my gripes with the game, and their severity!

    Nothing really new or interesting. An okay game to play, but it's rather bland in content and story.

    This is really not a new game, it's simply expanded content with not much difference than the original game.

    Yes, I loved the first one, yes I loved this one too. For some the play mechanics is way too boring and repetitive, for me it's where the fun is at.
    Does it feels unpolished? YES but looks better than the first one.
    Does it ends too soon? YES but it depends if you rush through the amin plot, NO if you do the side quests.
    Is it really an expansion? YES and it feels like it was rushed because the main Publisher THQ went bakrupt and they had to get all the money to keep going.
    Does it deserve your money? YES but wait until it is less than 20 bucks, otherwise you'll feel like these guys stole your money.
    Is it fun? YES, but if you didn't like the first one don't expect to like this one, it's zombie grinding at its best.
    Should you play it alone? NO, get some friends or find some via the game's internet matchmaker to play along.

    BTW even if you export your character from the first game can be exported and you get Level 70, enemies will be at level 75 and will kick your ass again and again... but this keeps the game challenging and it is not a bug. OH! I forgot, the bugs in this game are hilarious!
