See my Dead Island review for the shared basics: excellent melee system (makes up for all the negatives), pretty good looting and crafting system. Infuriating UI and consolitis.
Riptide is almost the same experience but with some improvements. The biggest I can think of is that firearms now feel genuinely powerful against zombies, and are now a legitimate choice. The weapon category leveling allows you to enjoy all sorts of weapons no matter which character you choose to play.
You can import your DI character into Riptide and continue leveling it.
The locations in Riptide: The first half are pretty crap, the second half are pretty good.
You see all these screenshots of the characters in the swamp? You're going to HATE that swamp. You can't sprint, you just slosh around, and you're gonna be doing a lot of walking back and forth. Yes there are motor boats, and maybe you can drive one for ten seconds before zombies pull you out into the water in an impossible QTE.
I still enjoyed this game plenty. It carries the positives AND the negatives of DI, with some improvements, not enough improvements sadly. But it's still DI, a bit better, and I love DI. Meleeing (and now shooting) feel just awesome.
