    Best-reviewed zombie horror trailer, maybe. Although I played the game all the way through, I have no desire to play a sequel unless it's a lot less repetitive than the first one. I didn't hate the game, and it was very pretty, but it was the same thing over and over and over. Of course, I never did the multi-player, which I hear was the best part.

    I'm just saying with ANY game, if you preorder it and go buy it day 1 without doing any research whatsoever, it's not really fair to get mad at the devs if you dislike it.

    After name-dropping the Dead Island sequel at E3 in June, Deep Silver drops the first visuals and details on Dead Island: Riptide, which challenges the original four survivors to live up to the label once again.

    They thought they were safe, but this is a zombie game — no one is ever truly safe. A powerful monsoon strikes just as the four heroes of Dead Island think their safe, destroying their rescue vessel and stranding them on the island resort once again.

    Don't expect the same lush locales, however — the island has been transformed by the monsoon. Large areas have been destroyed, streets are flooded — in one of the new screens they find themselves on a boat, surrounded by water bound undead.

    Nowhere is safe. For the fab four, which makes it fortunate that a new character with a mysterious new skill set is joining the crew. That's sure to help out during the game's new hub defense missions, which tasks players to set up defenses in advance of the oncoming hordes.

    Otherwise it sounds like a lot of the same thing, only different, and that's what a sequel is supposed to be.

    Dead Island: Riptide is slated for release in 2013 for the PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.

    Sounds like shit, which is what the status quo is for games these days.

    Well, on the positive side, this could only be better than the first one? I mean, they set the bar pretty fucking low, they should be able to do at least a little better than the original. That being said though, fuck this. Dead Island was awful, and this deserves to bomb.

    Re: Dead Island Riptide (PC/Consoles)

    They somehow end up on the same island? Sounds like a lazy sequel intended to minimize creating new areas.

    Idk, I found the first one entertaining enough, granted I played the majority of it with my brother. I'm excited for a sequel, more so if they tweak some minor annoyances

    Wow, those screen shots do look pretty. Think I'll be waiting for reviews before even seriously looking at this game.

    I am, however, absolutely looking forward to the trailer.

    Fool me once...

    Not as good as the first trailer, but still well done. Would like to see a couple more, since those were the best part of the first game.
