This is a review of the Dead Island Riptide Rigor Mortis Edition for PS3. Please excuse the fact that I did not purchase this from Amazon, but from my local Gamestop.Ok to start with I have only played Riptide for about an hour now, but I can say that it is tons of fun. The variety of weapons this time around is improved a lot from the original, my current inventory after just a mission or two on the island is a knife, wrench, nail plank, flare gun, and nail gun, with many more awesome weapon options available from sellers right off the bat. Graphics are a bit better in Riptide, at least during the day, very beautiful scenery, my only complaint is some screen tearing here and there. All in all some excellent zombie smashing action!
Now for the R.M. edition items: The game and items are packaged in a VERY nice mini suitcase. I had originally thought that the suitcase was made of metal, but in reality it actually looks and smells like leather! Very nice quality with brass studs and working latches. My only complaint is one of the brackets holding the handle on mine has a screw that was put in at an angle, not a big deal. The suitcase also has travel decals and the dead island logo on both sides.
The bungalow key is ok, looks brass but is a bit smaller than I expected, however the plaque it's attached to is real wood with the dead island logo, very nice touch I expected plastic.
The zombie arm bottle opener seems pretty sturdy, I haven't used it yet, but it's metal. SILVER with some red paint and the dead island logo. Also has two magnets on the back. Good for a fridge?
Last is the zombie hula bobble figure. It's bigger than I expected, clocking in at a little over 5 inches. It sways just like it should, mounted on a vehicle dash it should look great. The paint job is good overall, the mouth on mine looks a little weird I think because they were trying to show blood around lipstick maybe? On the downside the skirt on mine seems to be coated in some sort of clear coating, which right out of the package was sticky. The rest of the figure is fine though.
On a side note if this is pre-ordered or even if you act fast you might be able to snag the limited edition steel book for the game which is flat out AWESOME! Probably the best steelbook case I have ever seen.
Thanks for reading the review and I hope it helped you out, Now I'm off to kill some zombies. Enjoy!!!
