Hey, it's another game with zomb--zzzz.....
I’m not sure who the target demographic is for Dead Island: Riptide. It’s more than an expansion but far less than a sequel, so it provides more of what the first game had with few enhancements. With that said, I’m probably Deep Silver’s dream audience. I didn’t play the first game, but even less than glowing reviews didn’t stop me from being interested in it. Now that I’ve played Riptide, I can’t help but scratch my head and wonder what went on behind the scenes that resulted in this, another full-priced Dead Island game that seems to offer very little to set it apart from the 2011 original.
An extreme, fast-paced, and fun downloadable racer.
Mad Riders is an ATV based racer that emphasizes high speed races and tricks. Players have a few options available when starting up the game, including Tournament mode, which is the mode that is based on progression in the form of star collecting. Players have a series of challenges to complete in a specific map, like winning a race, landing a certain amount of tricks, or beating the clock. Finishing in third place will earn one star, second place earns two stars and first earns three stars. After collecting a certain amount of stars, you gain the ability to progress.
