Dead Island Riptide

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 escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.
Man I am a huge fan of the original Dead Island – what an excellent zombie blood bath! Ultra violent gaming mayhem at it’s finest. I can’t wait to see what the sequel has to offer.



Dead Island Riptide brings back the explosive mix of open-world gameplay, co-op first-person action and RPG elements to fans worldwide.
Dead Island: Riptide will be released on April 23 (US) and April 26 (Europe), published by Deep Silver, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

    I have to say, Dead Island was fun for the first three hours then it got boring… the story was very uninteresting and after a while I realized all I was doing was killing zombies which was fun but not enough. I played single payer only though, never tried co-op, maybe that would make the game.

      What made Dead Island for me was the setting. loved the whole ‘outbreak at a tropical resort’ thing. The bloody zombie killing was a good time, more of an in your face, hacknslash over the bullets and explosions. Co-op was definitely fun. Story wise….wasn’t really to engaging – run here, run there, fetch this, fetch that. Honestly I was in it for the sheer violent mayhem!
