The combat and missions are very much the same as before, so if you liked the first game you'll enjoy this one too. The big difference to me is that this game focuses on water environments, like swamps, and you have to use boats to get around more often than before. To me the storyline has been the weakest part in both games, although I liked this one better. You buy this game for the same reasons as the first one: gory zombie-killing, beautiful open-world exploration, and awesome weapons.

i didnt enjoy this as much as the first one. it just feels like a big DLC same kinda game play, few new zombies but just more fetch quests. if you liked the first one give this one a try just for the heck of it

Dead Island Riptide is Dead Island 1.5. If the first one didn't grab you, this one brings nothing new to the table, for better or worse. The only noticeable improvement is in the level design and textures, with environments that can be stunning and fun to explore. The combat is largely the same, which I don't believe needed to be messed with. Its a very weighty melee focused first person action adventure. This is the game you play with all dialogue volume turned off with heavy metal blaring.

 Gravity Rush - Vita
"This is a great Vita title. This game shows off cool graphics, awesome flying abilities and a very fun combat system. However the story was a little bit weird at the end, the story was really good in the beginning. This was a really fun game and is one of the must-get games for the Vita." - Battler


 Uncharted: Golden Abyss - Vita
"This game was a pretty good game for an early release title. The graphics are great and the gameplay was okay. The gameplay would have been good if there wasn't tedious swipes across screens especially in a combat. But putting that past, the game is pretty worthwhile but not as good as the original series Uncharted 1-3. This game however definitely isn't bad." - Battler

 Visual Park & Sega Dreameye - Sega Dreamcast
"old technology is such a trip lol" - uglypinkmoose

 Killzone: Mercenary - Vita
"This is a great portable shooter. It really shows off the beautiful graphics, great controls and a really fun money system. Though the campaign is a little short, it is always fun to replay and get more money, finish the game on a harder difficulty or just to replay it. The multiplayer is fun with a competitive feel. However the touchscreen can get a little clunky at times, but it is really easy to get use to. Pick this game up if you want a portable shooter, it is excellent!" - Battler
