Riptide (unbiased review)

This review is coming from a 15 year old, but i'm going to give an unbiased review. First off, if your kid has dead island 1, riptide should not be a problem becasue it has the same consistency when it comes to violence and language. In this game, you are 1 of many characters trying to survive against zombies. Of course, not much to learn here but it will show your child on making real life decisions when it comes to trusting people. I would be lying to you if I told you that the game is low on the blood and violence. It has alot of it, but It is up to you to tell whether your child can distinguish real versus fiction. It is certainly not for kids under 10, but can be debated for young teens. As for teens, its fine. A major part of the game is its violence, but no doubt does it make it what it is.... Fun! It is not only entertaining, but it is also co-op. There is a away to play with friends and globally on your quest to survive. I can't make your decision, but assure you that the game is suitable for most preteens and teens.

Good game but the not the best to choose

Good game quite gory with cutting off arms not very scary maybe an unexpected zombie in the dark surprising you very good looking language is quite bad if you don't like swearing I highly suggest you get your kids to play as Xian Mei (Chinese girl) as she very rarely swears and you will get guns(modded ones with lots of power which will encourage your kid to mod) over all good game if your kid gets scared easily however this game is not for you.

Best Zombie Sequel Yet!!!!!!!!

I thought this was brilliant, the new zombies are excellent and I can't stop playing it. Fans of the first game will definitely get a thrill out of this!!!!!
