  • Summary: Well...."Dead Rising 2" isn't a masterpiece, but enjoyable. The missions and zombie massacres are too repetitive after a while, but if you can live with it, that's fine. The weapon making system is awesome and creative in every way. The graphics are also (kinda) impressive if you watch it in a standard viewpoint. Overall a game that you would love to play in a rainy day.

  • Summary: I just rented this game recently, and thought I was going to absolutely love it; killing zombies with improvised weapons sounds like a fantastic idea. The weapons are absolutely well executed too, they're entertaining and satisfying to use. The character customization is also pretty well executed in terms of outfit choices and such. With these 2 things done so well, I was really enjoying this game at first.

  • Summary: The story wasn't so great, the freedom was little, gameplay was repetitive, bosses were ridiculous, graphics were bad and it LAGGED a lot (even on great computers), it's a RUSHED CONSOLE PORT, it requires Games for Windows Live (awful). I have a GTX NVIDIA video card and it still lags like a motherhumper. Other than that, the "crafting" system was cool, there's a large variety of weapons and places for you to visit, other stuff... But don't buy it.

  • Summary: Let me put it simply. Cons: Load Times, Repetitive side missions, Weak enemies, Ridiculously difficult bosses, A timer on a free-roaming game, and a broken save system. Pros: Paddlesaws. I rest my case.

  • Summary: I must say i do love a good zombie thrasher but this game is truly mleh! Thats the only way to describe it. the storyline is a bit crap really, and gets so reppetitive and boring after a while. You swing away killing zombies pointlessly with no goal. this game is dull boring and reppetitive. And for a capcom game im dissapointed. Resident evil 5 is way better than this.

  • Summary: Dead Rising 2 is the only game I have ever returned. It is that bad. Primitive graphics, awkward and buggy controls, lousy camera movement, silly weapons, frequent and long load times, too few save points, uninteresting story, and repetitive game play make this one of the worst games I have played.

  • Summary: Serious. Pure. **** Awesome. In all honesty, this game proves you don't need to be serious or have a story to be freakin' amazing. Definitely a good buy if you got some friends to play with. (Sure it's fun alone too, but is Left 4 Dead as fun alone as it is with friends? No? Didn't think so. Grab your buddies, and play this Dead Rising 2 'til your eyes start bleeding!

  • Summary: First of all, only buy this game if you have patience, lots and lots of patience. With an outdated graphics engine, glitchy animations and the worst save system I've ever seen in a game, it's only worth your time if you have the patience to the things like: Crossing the entire map just to rescue one survivor only to have it turn sides and shoot you to death, losing hours of gameplay due to a crappy save system and the list goes on.

  • Summary: Wow, Case Zero was way better. The time restraint is horrible. You can't do everything you want to do. I hate people telling me what i "have" to do. That is what work is for! Graphics are mediocre. The combo weapon system is fun. Case in point...this game gets old after awhile. All the bosses are insanely strong and unbearable to even want to beat.
