I`m suprised you dumped on it as hard as you did. To me it felt like a natural extension of the first game.

The criticism for the first game was pretty uniform and Riptide made no attempt to address the issues that plagued Dead Island. I understand that Riptide was an "expansion" but that doesn't excuse it for not working on the story or quest design. There is some fun to be had but when taking a look at the components that make up Riptide, I think it got the score it deserved...

I wasn't expecting it because I've already gotten a little tired of the negativity around here and the -20/10 "reviews", but as it turns out, I found the review quite accurate. I think this game is enjoyable because the base gameplay is fun, and I don't feel like I wasted my time or money. At the same time, I agree with pretty much all the negative points you brought up.

All in all, in think this is a good review.

Thanks, I try not to get my personal feelings about a game influence my score. I try to break everything down into objective points and come up with an appropriate score. I think most people have an emotional reaction to games and throw a number out based on that. It's why The Last of Us keeps getting perfect scores in spite of it's apparent flaws and games like this get extremely negative scores.
