Summary: Starting off with, I'm a gamer who frequently plays games in windowed mode, as I like to have easy access to my desktop and messenger and e-mail while gaming, and my monitor is big enough to accommodate. There is absolutely no excuse for a modern game like this one to not have a Windowed mode of any sort. Even Grand Theft Auto 4 had windowed mode.
Summary: [Good] The zombie killing premise inside of a mall with lots of stuff is pretty good. General gameplay is good if you don't mind repetition. [Bad] Games for Windows Live: Even though I was on Windows 8, which makes you sign in, this game just didn't work until you re-downloaded and re-installed GFWL. To add insult to injury, it didn't even recognize my controller until I downloaded some open source emulator. This took almost an hour to fix.
Summary: I figured that DR2 would be a good deal for $20. Ugh...not really. Really, I just paid $20 to get frustrated and curse a lot really loudly. Here's why: 1) Timed missions: you have a set amount of time to complete missions, so even though it seems like a "sandbox" game, it ain't. So that stinks. 2) Save points. Too few and far between. Period. 3) Redundant play: Slaughter zombies. Go up against mini-bosses who are way WAYYY too tough (comparatively speaking). Lather.

Summary: This game is destroyed by hard key customization. Plus you can not see what controls are how to change them. You have to find out for yourself what to do. The game story seems fine. The language is too offensive through the whole game. Some bosses/psychos are insane. I mean the way they are shown, they really are like psychos. It is not really fun to fight each and every other boss, because all of them are twisted. F.ex. some turn cannibals, some maniacs and so on.
Summary: I've had an HP Vista PC for 2 years with no problems ever. When I installed Dead Rising, a game that on the cover said it was for PC, my PC went into a series tailspin that I have not yet been able, after 2 months to recover it. After trying to get the game to work, calling support, I finally had to take it off my PC without ever even playing it. A total waste of my purchase dollars. Then I spent 2 days trying to recover my PC.
Summary: This has got to be one of the worst zombie games I have ever played. It takes up a lot of computer resources, and the story line is awful. The game is more about babysitting than killing zombies. To make the game suck even more, the people you try to save are incredibly slow, and they don't always follow you, and you have to fight humans that appear to have super human abilities.
Excerpt: Правда, не покупайте игру. Только если совсем делать нечего.
Pros: Почти нету, ну разве что графика неплохая.
Cons: Одна из худших игр про зомби, в которую я играл! Требует кучу ресурсов, а сюжет просто тупой. В игре только и делаешь, что убиваешь зомби и нянчишься с людьми. А они тормозные - просто жуть, да еще постоянно куда-нибудь убредут. А еще приходится драться с людьми, которые владеют какими-то сверхестественными способностями.
