''Dead Island: Riptide'' is the follow-up to 2011's ''DeadIsland'', and is not so much a sequel as a really big expansion pack. After surviving the [[ZombieApocalypse outbreak of kuru]] that transformed most of the vacationers on the Pacific island of Banoi into cannibalistic rage zombies, the five survivors are taken into the custody of the Australian military.

''Riptide'' caught hell in much of the gaming press for the trailer, the collector's edition, and being an expansion rather than a sequel, and not doing a thing to fix any of ''Dead Island's'' numerous, notorious flaws. The original game was cut a lot of slack by many players and critics for being a labor of love that spent several years in development hell, so its bugs, cumbersome inventory system, and occasionally bizarre graphics were all part of its barely-made-it-to-market charm. ''Riptide'' has all of those problems and a few more besides despite coming out a year and a half later. With that in mind, virtually all of ''Dead Island's'' gameplay tropes also apply to ''Riptide''.

* [[spoiler: DownerEnding:Both Cecil and Jacqueline's shelters are invaded by zombies as the survivors escape the island. It's implied that the main cast were killed by zombies or succumbed to a mutated version of the virus. If it's the latter then Harlow was right and her efforts to stop them from leaving stings. On top of that, the boat your characters are on hits another island a few days later, but no one is up on the deck. On top of that, the boat was drifting listlessly, implying that your characters may have succumbed to the virus and killed the other non-immune survivors. The latch leading inside the ship opens as the scene ends.]]

** John Morgan has much the same thing which in contrast to Ryder shows him to be a pretty decent guy, if a little upset at the outbreak and military reaction to it.

* {{Expy}}: Picture HughJackman playing {{Wolverine}} in a ZombieApocalypse based in Australia. Perfect, you know who John Morgan is then.

** John Morgan kind of looks like HughJackman and his specialty is hand to hand fighting. There's another character called Logan. And one of the weapons in the game are WolverineClaws. The only way to make it more apparent [[{{Wolverine}} who]] this refers to would be if Creator/SteveBlum returned from the first game. Somebody at Deep Silver's a fan.
