Team Up To Survive Zombie Paradise, Again

They thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Then their fate took a turn for the worse... The Dead Island heroes managed to escape in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm strikes out of the blue, the virus that began the initial zombie plague suddenly spreads throughout the crew.

I suppose my review will be fairly short. Have you played the original Dead Island? Do you like it? Do you want more of the same?

If the answer to those questions - especially the third - are all 'yes' then you'll get a lot out of this. If the answers mostly consist of 'no' run for the hills. There's a few new elements to it but really, this is more like an expansion than a fully-fledged sequel. The only sticking point to fans is the price, I suppose; a little expensive at time of writing to truly justify a purchase, but that's very much an individual decision.

My overall rating of four stars is purely for the fans; discount one if you wanted innovation (heck, even the original didn't score highly there).

I just finished the story with a character I imported from the first game. There are a few changes and added elements, but it plays more like an expansion than a new game. The storyline is similar, as well as the game play. Unfortunately, it was just like the first game in that there are massive bugs and glitches that still need to be worked out. Near the middle I had to redo a zombie defense mission because there was a hidden zombie that could not be killed. There are also some graphic errors (i.e. dead zombies standing up for no reason), and there were no major improvements this area when compared to the first game. The voice acting is overall good (with some funny parts for good measure), but the characters still have virtually no facial expression changes. Occasionally the voice of female zombies will show up on male zombies, and vice versa.

Guns are incorporated a bit more (With some alternatives in harpoon and nail guns), but it still takes forever to get a decent one. There are a few new zombies, and overall a significantly higher number than before. This is a fun challenge in the later part of the game, but is FRUSTRATING in the beginning when you don't have decent weapons both melee and ranged. Even with an imported character I died more in the first quarter of the game by a significant amount. They felt the need to make new characters start at level 15. Not only does that scream this game should have been an expansion, but that difficulty may have needed a rework in the beginning. It is very difficult to play this game solo.

The boating elements are fun and challenging, but it is only incorporated in the earlier parts of the game.

This is definitely better than the Left4Dead series. It is a wide open world which allows you to wander, complete quests and kill zombies!

Not the best game, storyline or graphics. But it was definitely worth the money to play. I will purchase other games in this series.

I love this game. I bought it because I'm a big Adam Croasdell fan. The game is lots of fun. You get to drive and run over zombies if you like. Yahoo. Lots of different kinds of weapons and you get to modify the weapons.

Full Disclosure -
I am a huge fan of this game. I loved the first one. I rated it a 3 out of love for the genre. If I was to rate it for the average video game player out there...I would give it 2 stars.

I dealt with the bugs, graphics, key binding, and weird crash problems! It became PLAYABLE on PC after the very last patch was released. My girlfriend and I played CO-OP via LAN and had a blast. This game kind of has a cult following. Many people did not like the first one. Those that did (like me) dearly hoped that the Ryder White DLC would be improved and make up for it. Well, that was a huge let down and angered even more people. So, we held off and kept our hopes high that Deep Silver would pay attention and learn from their mistakes, polish the rough edges and make RIPTIDE into a diamond. Instead, what we have is the EXACT same product, just slightly changed.

As far as anyone can tell (players, mag and website reviewers) there are no improvements!
1-The game engine itself is the problem. Deep Silver obviously took the lazy road, saved money and recycled the old engine...rust and all.

2-The FOV(field of view) is fixed at 62.5! Do you like getting sea sick or nauseous in front of your monitor? My girlfriend almost got sick from the 62.5 FOV! The original game did this. I just assumed that it would have been fixed! It wasn't. And with a simple bit of searching online, I saw all the other players in forums complaining about it too, talking about getting sick, not being able to play it. Everyone was manually tweaking their settings. Deep Silver says they cannot do this, that there are 'reasons' for the game to be in 62.5 FOV mode! Then why is it that we can adjust it ourselves by editing your darn files DS and stop the nausea and enjoy the game?

As with any new release, there will be plenty of people talking about the technical side of the game. This will simply be an "old" guy talking about how much fun (or not) a game is.

Since I have only had it for a few hours, I can say very little other than it looks pretty good. It has the same feel as the original. It does feel like the zombies are a bit more fierce and deadly this time around. I was initially a little disappointed that you could not import your previous character and his skills,it turns out I was too quick on the trigger and missed it...plus being on a new system that did not have the previous game installed, but there is a new guy, so I will be giving him a go just to see what he offers.

Stay tuned for more updates in the next couple of days as I get deeper into the game play. And just a note, I don't rush to the end so I can post some mythical "hours playable" figure. Most of us normal players don't run a stop watch when we play, and many of us enjoy the side quests and also tend to die...A LOT...while getting the hang of a game. So the updates here will just be about whether the game is fun or not.

I have decided to play equal time on all four characters to see what/if the difference might be in the story line. Unlike some of the lames that dash to the finish line and do not take the time to really explore, I am in no hurry. In a few days, I will post an honest update, but for now I will say it looks nice and I am having my guts handed to me pretty regularly by a tougher zombie than in the original.

UPDATE!!!

So, now that I am a few days in and have swapped from character to character, I am a little disappointed that the story line is basically the same across the board. The interactions do not vary.
