Just wondering what people think of the Ryder White's Campaign DLC. Is it any good or should I just save my money?

I breezed through it in an afternoon not impressed at all. Single player only, which just doesn't work considering Dead Island is all about the co-op.

All the areas are just recycled from the main campaign and it's tediously linear. No character progression and a reduced range of mods for the weapons.

Personal gripe of mine was the inclusion of sewer bits which really annoyed me and constantly spawning infected in some areas make anything other than running from point a to b very annoying.

I'd suggest you wait until it is dotw.

No achievements means no buy which means save your money. All DLC (except maybe map packs for CoD) should have achievements.

That's how I felt about the Quarantine in Moresby while playing the main game. I literally lost $8,000+ on my first run through from respawn penalties. I really hate the Infected.

I would not recommend this dlc until it is on deal of the week. Too much money for too little content and no achievements. If you want it for the story then wait until it is on dotw to pick it up. I picked it up before I realized there were no achievements and wish I would have waited.

Not sure, with no achievements, I just can't buy. I know I know, "If you like the game enough who cares about achievements." But I feel something is missing now, achievements have changed the way I game forever.

overall its good. good story and good gameplay. lots of ammo so gunplay is more so than the main story. explains back story of main campaign.

negatives are: no xp. few mods. exploration is punished (nonstop infected often in city). no achievements. end is over fast (since he dies in main campaign).

Damn i'm glad I picked up the GOTY edition for 15 near enough brand new today, probably just saved a packet with the DLC.
