Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Cheat Happens

  • Excerpt: You've got to feel bad for poor ole' Chucky Green. This time last year, the former professional dirt bike rider was the star of his own blockbuster video game. Fast forward a few years and he's sharing the spotlight with former protagonist Frank West, who as we all know has covered wars you know  (Okay, that's the only time I'm going to do that I swear).

  • Excerpt: In some important ways, Off the Record is the best Dead Rising yet. It's just a shame you've probably seen most of it before.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

Shacknews
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: is one of those cases of good things coming in unexpected packages. On the surface, it looks like a cash grab from a publisher taking advantage of a series’ fanbase. After all, it arrives only a year after the release of the original Dead Rising 2, and appears to essentially be the same game with a new hero. Looks can be deceiving, though. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record may be the best game in the series.

Dead Rising 2: Case West

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Playing this short and sweet game makes you wonder whether they couldn’t construct the next title in such a way so that co-op can play a larger part, because if Dead Rising 2 ’s co-op was anywhere near as much fun as Case West ’s, I doubt I’d want to play it solo more than once.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

VideoGamer.com
13 March 2011
  • Excerpt: For a game that contained so many wonderful elements, Dead Rising 2 was hard to love. Any given moment could find you building a homemade lightsaber, beating zombies to death with a fluorescent dildo, or breaking into a shop so you could try on women's clothing. On the other hand, the overall fun factor was stymied by several recurring annoyances - notably some rock hard boss battles, and the late-game arrival of a new enemy type that was a pain in the arse to fight.
