    The sooner you say good-bye to Mr. White, the less disappointed you'll be.

    For 8 quid, this add-on manages to bite out Dead Island's biggest chunk of fun. [Apr 2012, p.98]

    Ryder White is a well designed DLC in which feels like a completely different gaming experience to Dead island. Although having the sameRyder White is a well designed DLC in which feels like a completely different gaming experience to Dead island. Although having the same locations and combat, the players are provided with a much darker story that fits in well with the original. This game isn't perfect but Techland have provided a quality DLC to fans in which has come across as negative because of the axe of multiplayer and skill trees. I personal believe it has benefited the game as you fell more involved in what's going on. I would and have recommended this game to all Dl fans. It's defiantly worth your time and money.

    The Ryder White DLC is basically what Dead Island would have been like if it were a normal modernized linear shooter instead of an open worldThe Ryder White DLC is basically what Dead Island would have been like if it were a normal modernized linear shooter instead of an open world slasher. Or just what Dead Island would have been like if you stripped all of its unique qualities away.
    When playing as Ryder White you no longer gain experience or have any sort of access to a skill tree. The linear level designs are packed with ammo and there is very little need to ever use melee combat.
    The entire experience was around 5 hours long, and included a plot twist involving how Ryder communicated with the original crew in Dead Island that I felt was absolutely terrible and destroyed any redeeming factor I could have found in playing the DLC.
    If your a fan of the homogenized linear shooters, then you may actually like this DLC.

    ALSO: This DLC counts towards the progress of challenges in the game, however, if you complete a challenge while playing as Ryder White, that experience reward is discarded since Ryder does not acquire EXP. This is a great way to screw yourself out of a ton of exp for your co-op characters!
