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.
