    The embargo has lifted on the reviews of Techland’s zombie-follow-up, Dead Island: Riptide. Is it silly-fun or just plain silly? Get the scores through the break.

    Dead Island: Riptide is out this week on PC, PS3 and 360 and the review scores have started to go up all around the interwebs.

    Dead Island: Riptide is the follow-up to Techland’s co-op zombie-masher, Dead Island, which achieved a respectable Metacritic score of low-70s on console and 80 on PC when it was released back in 2011.

    Let us know in the comments below if you have any scores for Dead Island: Riptide and we’ll update the list throughout the day. All scores out of ten except where otherwise indicated.

    In the meantime, amuse yourself with a gameplay trailer, the latest screens and read why our very own Ms Brenna H is actually quite looking forward to revelling in the silliness of Dead Island: Riptide.

    IGN – 7.2

    VentureBeat – 65/100

    Kinda disappointed with this game .. Every city/map looks the same, various npc with the same faces .. To me this looks more like an add on for the first game, not really a whole new game

    Looking at those review scores it gets above average marks. Pre ordered my Zombie Bait edition so when it comes I will give it a whirl and hope it's as good as dead island (and hopefully not as buggy as they make it out to be!)
