Don’t Worry, This ‘Dead Island: Riptide’ Trailer Isn’t Too Depressing

DeadIslandRiptide

This brand new trailer for Dead Island: Riptide doesn’t pack the emotional punch to the gut the first game’s trailer did, but it’s still pretty great as far as trailers go. I enjoyed the original game a lot, despite its numerous flaws. Obviously, it didn’t quite live up to the bar set by that amazing trailer, so I can only hope Riptide doesn’t meet the same fate. We won’t know for sure until next year, so until then, I suggest immersing yourself in yet another dark trailer, courtesy of the Dead Island franchise.

    sweet trailer. @djblack- i agree on a cgi zombie flick. it’s long over do

    • djblack1313

      totally! weren’t there rumblings that this company (whoever made the first amazing trailer) was going to do a DEAD ISLAND cgi movie? i hope that is still in the works!

    Good thinking Adam, Maybe D I: Riptide will be alot better than the first D I.You both make good points djblack1313 and mmmc666, but there is already a cgi zombie film isnt there? Oh yeah! There is a Resident Evil cgi film. Cgi takes work away from people who need work. Some times its cool like in a game but it is too fake looking in a movie.

      Joe-Banger, in all due respect your “Cgi takes work away from people who need work” is hilarious. if zombie films weren’t tired and lame nowadays then i would agree w/ you. and yes the new RE:DAMNATION (i’ve watched it) is very good!

    The first Dead Island was epic. One of the best zombie games ever, and if Riptide improves in all the right ways IT could be the best zombie game released so far. The biggest flaw in Dead Island was the horrible, horrible voice acting and cutscenes. You would think the main characters wouldn’t sound so hacky. “Do you know who I am?! I played, for the god damn champions!” (Shudders)

    • Adam Dodd

      Totally agree. I say we start a petition to get DC Douglas to voice one of the characters. This game needs more Wesker.

    Another awesome trailer from this game series. [Insert teardrop here]

    Meh. That trailer was nothing special. The first trailer for the first game was epic, especially in reverse. heard this game won’t be a full actual game, but like a shorter version of part 1. Any truth to that?

    • JonOfTheShred

      I think it’ll be like Halloween 2 was to Halloween. A direct sequel that starts right after the first one ended.

    It’s the feel good trailer of the year
