Brilliant game, completed the story on co-op with my friend.
> Importing your character from DI is great at the beginning as the skills you have will assist you whilst you get used to the new scenery, enemies and weapons.
> Firearms have been made more realistic and as a result a shot to the head is likely to kill any zombies first time.
> New weapons makes the game so much more enjoyable and gives you a few laughs along the way. For example, my personal favourite the harpoon which when hitting zombies such as walkers and infected it will knock them of their feet. Also, if you hit a zombie and it's by a wall or a tree, you can pin the zombie against the object with the harpoon. Another favourite is they have now introduced snipers that have a lot of power and will serve you well if you prefer to pick them off rather than storming in with a melee weapon. The firearms come in to their own when used with the character "Purna" as she is the firearms specialist.
> If the DI story left you confused or if you feel it didn't explain itself enough then Riptide will help as it explains the DI story and then expands upon it.
> The game is left wide open at the end, suggesting that the franchise will continue in a few years.
Overall I think this is a brilliant game and although I have completed it, I can still have hours of fun with my friends killing zombies and completing side quests. If you're 50-50 on buying this game, I would highly recommend it.
