Dead Island: Riptide is just fucking terrible

Within the first 15 minutes:

-Terrible A.I.
Example: I walk into a room and see one zombie eating a corpse. I go up to him and kill him. Loot his body, look around for some items, and then standing right next to the door that I entered is a zombie just standing there. He doesn't see me or attack until I've already started hitting him twice.
-Technical Issues
Example: Screen tearing because a room is filled with water. Framerate drops when more than 2 zombies are on screen.
-Audio Issues
Example: Hearing zombies when I'm not anywhere near one. Oh and then the audio just disappears completely. My 360 still makes noise when hitting the home button, but the game is silent.

Oh and the story is already terrible. So are the voice acting, character models, and graphics in general. Did Deep Silver basically copy and paste their own game but added new environments? Somehow this game is technically and mechanically worse than the original. How is that fucking possible?

tl;dr

Avoid at all costs.

Anyone else playing this shit?

Edit: Oh and to fix the audio dying on me, I restarted the game and when I reloaded my last checkpoint I'm for some reason in the middle of being attacked by zombies with half my health gone. It wasn't like I spawned, then they saw me and attacked me, I spawned/reloaded and they are in the midst of raping my face. >_>
