    Dead Island Riptide goes where other zombie games have not, however, still not far enough for me.

    Rated on April 29, 2013 by EndlessJourneys

    With the release of the first Dead Island, i was very exited because i love sandbox games where you are free to roam and complete the game at your pace in your own fashion. Also, i haven't played a go...

    Forever now, my name keeps getting worse and worse, and I was recently moderated for being something called "Dr-Professional" which I never even heard of. As well as spam and advertising. I never did ...

    Pretty fun and addicting, despite being a nearly copy & paste duplicate of the original game.

    Rated on April 30, 2013 by okie1682

    I've seen a pretty mixed bunch of reviews when it comes to this game. While I think the editors of GameSpot were a little brutal giving it only a 4.0 rating, I wanted to give my fair and unbiased opi...

    Best game to play with your mates

    Rated on May 01, 2013 by Sam_021

    I played the first one and it was not just visually amazing, but also it had an incredible co-op system that made me play the game again even after I was done. I was not expecting so much improvement...

    Very Static, not much variety in the whole experience. Great for just straight up killing zombies!

    Rated on May 09, 2013 by Larenz_Coffey

    Very similar to the prior dead island, same controls, gameplay, and even the whole game quality has not changed much. If you played the original dead island you will just be getting on the same ride, ...

    I Don't Understand All The Hate, Riptide Is A Good Solid Sequel, Perhaps Falling Short In Areas

    Rated on May 15, 2013 by Jock9

    Dead Island: Riptide is the sequel to one of the best games I've ever played on console, I think personally the original beats Borderlands and it's own sequel hands down with game play and the minimal...

    It's another fun zombie slaying game for the Dead Island series, but it is a copy and paste effort overall!

    Rated on June 07, 2013 by XboxGuy1537

    After completing Dead Island: Riptide twice, I can say that it is an overall stupid but fun zombie slasher game. The game takes place on another island. You and your teammates end up on it after escap...

    A game that is everything it is supposed to be, with some glitches along the way.

    Rated on June 19, 2013 by Cmon3y

    I went through this entire game with my buddy, and much like the original Dead Island, it is still the same fun hack n slash zombie game. The storyline is much of the same as the first one, stranded o...
