So getting back on topic, what are these changes and enhancements from the original? I ask because I recall many saying it was heavily derivative, to the point where it even shares many of the same bugs.

I don't normally even bitch about DLC, but they released Riptide with the same character models and same skins as DI and then charged extra for new outfits to people who bought Riptide.

Riptide is probably the laziest sequel/followup/whateveritis that I've ever played and it's one of the few games I regret buying. It is exactly the same game as Dead Island with a new character on a different island, and I don't mean it just plays or looks the actually -is- the same game. It's an expansion pack that's not marketed as one.

It's a continuation of the story from Dead Island, which is the only reason to play Riptide. Anyone dying to know what happens to the throwaway, unlikable characters from DI will probably be happy with it.
