Summary: Skip this one, the first one was ok but I found this one quite boring and being forced to play motorcycle parts and stuff just ruins the experience for me. Play Dead Rising 1 or better yet the Dead Island series or Dying Light and to a lesser extent Left For Dead series.
Summary: A more playable experience than its predecessor, Dead Rising 2 would totally be superior, right? Well, it is very far from that, to be honest. The new combo weapon mechanic can make the game too easy, so I wish i could turn it off in the Options menu, but no dice.
Summary: This is a pretty decent game. However, there's one design choice that returns from the original that needed to be fixed (and, no, I am not a "noob," I've been playing games my entire life.) Auto-saving is a standard in today's gaming. And none of the Dead Rising games have it. WHY?!
Summary: Dead Rising is a good example of what a good sequel should be, expanding of the ideas of the original and taking them to a new creative level within a new environment and this game does that, however when the foundation is a game as piss poor as the original Dead Rising then the only way is up....
