* FantasyFictionalCounterpart: Given the French flags, island setting and close proximity to Australia Palanai is a stand in for Numeia and Mauri Island.

Added DiffLines:

* SteelEardrums: Averted with some explosives, if they make a concussion like a Marines mortar strike then even when out of blast range you will be temporarily deaf.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyGameHell: Fleeing the ship is made, well...challenging as the Infected are much tougher. Justified as instead of holiday goers you are dealing with Australian Navy zombies.

* LostForever:
** You really want to finish up the crew quests for [[spoiler: Harlow and Hardy]] the ''moment'' you reach Henderson, as events subsequently take place that render them impossible to complete.
** On a related note, like in the first game, if you throw your weapons at the zombies, make sure you pick it up before you wander off too far. Otherwise they will vanish, and you'll lose that item forever. The game usually tells you to pick it up or risk losing it as well.

''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.]]
