So i have been getting some complaints on my recent Dead Island Riptide review, so I went back and tried to see it from a different point of view and I can see why so many reacted. It is a poorly written review and I clearly did not spend enough time with it.
After having played the game some more I feel comfortable to say I was wrong and I should not have rushed the review. The reason I did so in the first place was because I run a one-man operation, though I do have some friends who help me out, I'm the only one playing and writing at the moment.
So when Dead Island Riptide came out I was pretty swamped and I had to play through the original to freshen up for the review, I think I just got fatigued with the game from the first one. So even though i still think some of my points were valid, I still feel like I unnecessarily over-critiqued the game and i officially redact my previous score.
I let myself and my readers down and I will never rush a review or overburden myself with too many reviews at once again. So with that I extend an apology to my readers as well as Deep Silver and Techland.
I would also like to thank my friends for pointing this out to me, I have a very finish-one-thing-instantly-move-on-to-next-project mindset. And a special thanks to my friend the Waffle for posting everything I do on social media sites and relaying comments and messages to me.
