Should I buy this?
Title.
I was... I AM a big fan of the original and I haven't met and bad glitches/bugs. I still play it every now and then.
Now I finally decided to think about picking up Riptide.

If anyone can help me decide, thank you.
Also, I request for trolls to not post in here, neither haters of the series. I want constructive arguments.

If you love the first game, you will loved the second one. They are pretty much identical just more weapons and different story. If you end up buying the game, i will play it with you no problem.

I got it on a sale and I am enjoying it when I can play.
More weapons.Little more story.
More ability to customise the characters
Look for another sale is my advice.Its been up to 50% off here..other places it may be cheaper

Dead Island games are really a mixed bag in my opinion...controls are sluggish, story boring, characters bland, storytelling pretty abysmal. On the other hand...best goddarn combat system in any zombie game I've seen. And that's a sellingpoint right there.

As I've said Biggles, I am a fan of the older game so I got used to the controls, story, and characters. And the story.
Even though, because I got used to it, I like them all.

Thanks for the answers guys, I am gonna buy the game.

See you on Palanai!

Kuziz, glad you will join us. I bought DI: Riptide in the summer specials and I like both. I LOVED the first one, despite before it all not being a "zombie genre" lover...I am now.

If it was the first one you had played, you might not have warmed to it as much (I found the colours a bit gaudier than the first one and the map detail wasn't as 'sharp', plus some of the mechanics - like spawning - were not as consistent as the first), but having played the first, I did forgive this when I started getting into it and acquiring the other weapons, esp. the chainsaw, landmines, my Tesla shovel and the other skills that John has.

The "boss" zombies were a great touch, I find the merchants are more varied and I love my flare and nail guns. Overall, I am reasonably happy with Riptide.
