It’s this recycling — from the weapon mods to the character trees to the zombie fights to the fetch quests — that ultimately dooms Riptide to mediocrity. I enjoyed it more than its predecessor, but it’s not a better game. It’s the same game with some new ideas, but ultimately too few of them used much, much too often.

The frustrating thing is that occasionally, a good game threatens to make itself known, and it does some things very right. The combat is still good, with a satisfying 'thunk' every time you slaughter your enemies, and you do fall into some sort of rhythm with it. In short bursts it’s a lot easier to get on with too, as prolonged play leaves it feeling very tedious.

In short, Dead Island: Riptide is a bit of a disappointment. With the relative success of the first game, Riptide was poised to do great things if it could solve the issues of Dead Island. Sadly, instead of fixing issues, Techland added new ones. Riptide does manage to pull off some fun zombie-killing action at points, but as a whole, the game fails to deliver the full experience.
