    So? I don't think we are ranking it on a scale of crappy objects. It's a peace of tasteless crap. I don't see the need to decide how it stacks up to other bit's of crap.

    This... Really didn't bother me.

    At first sight i thought it was great they were having fun with their game but thought it was a bit tacky. It's not something i'd be interested in but i'm not offended by it at all.

    Some people like a furore so much that i'm thinking it was put out as a PR stunt to generate hype and they had no intention of shipping that statue at all. Do we know if many were made or if that's the prototype?

    Given their apology I would say it was a PR stunt. They have all their bases covered in the apology. They are profoundly sorry now so any media who contact them will be told they have already done everyone they possibly can to correct this terrible "mistake". And in the meantime obviously they got a bit more press coverage than they might have done. Job done.

    It's also an EU and Oz only edition so they obviously knew the yanks would lose their shit over this! :)

    The speed with which they backtracked also makes it seem like a PR stunt.

    Please, Deep Silver, don't wimp out your games in the future because of this.

    Saw that last night on the IGN xbox app, pretty impressed, really looking forward to this, will be the only other game this year (apart from Bioshock) that I make sure to get as soon as it's out.

    Holy crap, a friend of mine entered a Dead Island Riptide Facebook competition to win an all expenses paid wedding and Caribbean honeymoon... And won.

    Pretty bloody jealous now.

    Is this out in the US on Tuesday? If so I guess reviews should be dropping soon?

    Ha! Not really sure what the point of reviews are ;) - especially in a game like Dead Island where much of my lasting enjoyment came from the hilarity of the multiplayer vs. the almost spooky solitude of some of the single player stuff.

    Sure, it was a game that wasn't anything like its art-house reverse-video trailer, and perhaps its strengths lay more in a game that gave more from being played, rather than reviewed... but it'll be another game that I base my purchasing decision on from the discerning tastes of other gamers rather than usually without co-op reviews.

    Heck, if it incorporates the subtle changes they patched into the first game like the dynamic enemy levelling, I might even try and get it sooner, rather than later.

    I'm mildly looking forward to it. Enjoyed the first one and a new version in a new setting with a few tweaks is fine with me.

    Only issue is that some reports are saying its a fair bit shorter than the first game. More an expansion than a sequel.

    Day one purchase for me, need a break from Defiance:)

    @StarchildHypocrethes Yes, think I've read that it's a bit shorter too - although I think it is being released at a reduced RRP - ~30 rather than ~40 I believe.

    (A quick google suggests a fair number of the online stores are indeed doing the console versions for around 30.)

    Like fletch, it's an expense for me that I could do without stretching for, but every reduction helps, and I'm confident I'll get a fair bit of fun out of it if the first game is anything to go by.

    @agparrot I'm currently having a lot of fun with '5/10' defiance, so a duff score won't sway me, just want to hear a bit more about it really!

    Also need to know if it has shonky animations. It better had.

    The new horde-style defence missions look quite fun. I think weapons are going to be a bit more durable too, which is nice.

    As long as it has that lovely animation when you break both arms of a zombie and it just flaps its arms all over the place :)

    I just preordered it at go2arena. There was some special offer for it, so I didn't pay much. There's also free contest with nice prizes. Maybe you'll be interested.

    Yeah i'm keeping my pre-order.

    EG gave a similar review for the first one, but i personally thought it was an excellent game.

    A little rough around the edges?, definitely. Loads of fun despite that?, absolutely.

    Quite looking forward to it actually, with a bit of luck shopto will get it to me by Thursday too.

    Cant wait!

    6/10 is a still good score don't forget - it means it's above average.

    I admit the first game felt like a personal 9/10 to me but then again 6 was totally justified.
  • Deleted user 22 April 2013 15:59:46
    I'm just looking at what I won't miss to trade in against it. First one was a 9/10 to me too. I loved it, even with it's flaws.

    10 on PC and I'll still jump back in, but not for anything higher.

    I liked the original, seriously, but the decidedly wonky engine let it down a lot. I played it because I managed to score a physical PC copy at launch for 20 (can't remember how) and it was worth that. Still can't believe they didn't make this DLC.

    Dead Island was an ugly duckling of a game and I loved it, warts and all. Riptide reads like same game, down to the same glitches and idiotic story. As long as weapon crafting and (analog) combat are as fun as DI, I will be picking Riptide up ASAP. 6/10 will not sway me.

    Fuggit - Tesco Direct are selling this for 30, they have a code for a fiver off if you stick "TDX-KPWM" for items of 30 or more, and I have 10 of clubcard vouchery things, so for 15, I guess I'm just going to plump for it.

    You've gone and talked yourself into it :)

    I'm tempted but my next game purchase will have to be Injustice.
    Riptide will stay on my list of things to buy though.

    I may have waited a little for a price drop, but at 30 notes i may well plump up the dollar.

    So the wedding is no doubt in full swing right now. I noticed they invited Luis Suarez after his hunger for human flesh became apparent.

    Shopto have dispatched, so should have this tomorrow.

    The average reviews have done absolutely nothing to kill my excitement for this game - i keep thinking back to how much i enjoyed the first one and i absolutely cannot wait to dive back into some DI action.

    @Ultrasoundwave Let us know how you find it as I, like you, am really looking forward to it. Budgetary constraints mean I need to wait a bit though!
