Dead Island Riptide takes place immediately after the ending of Dead Island, with the four immune survivors – ex-American Football player Logan Carter, rapper Sam B, Hong Kong police officer Xian Mei, and Australian bodyguard Purna – landing on an aircraft carrier after escaping from the prison island. They are immediately taken into custody by the ADF Colonel Sam Hardy and Frank Serpo, a civilian VIP. In the ship’s brig, they meet another immune survivor, soldier John Morgan, who claims Serpo stopped the military’s evacuation.
It is clear that the story was thrown together without much thought. At one point the main character even says “not again!” which is how I felt about the story. You’ll never feel invested in the story however it is so cheesy that you might just get some humour out of it.
