Dead Island Riptide Could Be Cool. Or Not

Posted on Saturday, September 1 @ 08:45:00 Eastern by sara_gunn


Dead Island is a strange little game. Not bad, but something about it was a little… off. I wanted to like it but, in the end, it was just a bit… meh.
 
So next year we’re getting Dead Island Riptide. According to Joystiq, “The game will return the focus to close combat from the latter gunplay found in Dead Island, with a new weather system and upgrades to the engine of the first game. The weather system will now include flooding and lovely trips down zombie infested rivers on little boats. There are also forts that need to be reinforced and barricaded.”
 
Riptide takes place on a neighboring island, and is not a sequel in the truest sense. Think of it as more of an Operation Raccoon City. Hopefully it will be better than that.
 
It’s hard to say how a game like this will turn out; it could be a good chance for Deep Silver to make some improvements to the formula, to prove they’re ready to make a full sequel. Or it could be a god-awful piece of crap.
 
Either way, don’t pay full price for it. Even the first one’s not worth that much.
