When Dead Island was released in 2011, it was in a league of its own, a first person view open world survival-horror game. Players chose one of four characters, each with different skills, and completed quest after quest to finally escape the island. In order to survive you had to level up your skills, find and modify weapons, and at times, team up to take down difficult bosses. The game was not perfect, but it was so different and fun, that its flaws were mostly looked over. Deep Silver has now released the sequel to Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide and hope to build on its success, using a new location, a deeper story, and even a new character to control.About
