Dead Island - Editorial @ Destructoid
Destructoid has an editorial for this game entitled "From lame of the year to game of the year" where they look at how Teckland can improve the sequel, Riptide.
A quote on how the map could be improved:
The map could also use some serious work. It was difficult to find specific areas without having a mission actively guiding you to them, while waypoints were too infrequent. Efficient travel between districts would make the collecting aspects of the game a bit easier to pull off, a bonus to those who enjoyed tracking down all the weapon mods (arguably one of the game's best features). Even just labeling each district would be a massive improvement. If Riptide is to improve on Dead Island as a whole, the map and menu are a good place to start.
