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: 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....
Summary: I really enjoyed the laugh i got when overlooking the instructions while the game was loading then while comparing the grapple update items and the layouts laughed you know about an update of state of emergency that made me laugh even more when comparing layouts and grapple updates you know thought...
Summary: I picked up Dead Rising 2 for the PC having never played the first one for XBOX360. I figured being trapped in a mall with 1000's of zombies a'la Dawn of the Dead would be a blast. While the aforementioned zombie bashing and story actually turn out to be pretty good, the game is HARD.
Summary: well the game is fun and the fact that you can beat a zombie with just about enything in the area is great. the graphics are outstanding and the cinema cuts are top notch. but if your are like me and truly want to enjoy the game.
Summary: The game is really really fun. i enjoy it thoroughly. i have several problems, however. First off, the movement of chuck seems a bit jerky and sudden. so climbing and running along narrow catwalks becomes a pain. secondly, im not sure but i dont think he runs either.
Dead Rising 2 Offers Zombie-Killin' Fun, But Also Frustration

Summary: It's surprising to me to see Dead Rising 2 release as basically the same game as Dead Rising with a few minor changes. Perhaps I was mistaken, but I remember the general reaction to the original game to be something like this: "free roaming zombie killing is fun, but timed missions, escort missions...
Conclusion: Decent and fun game the first 2 play throughs but after that gets really boring and easy, the game really needs difficulty settings. When you play co-op its not much fun because again too easy nothing is made harder from single player to co-op, was easy enough on my 1st play thru single player.
Excerpt: The original Dead Rising was critically well received, and scored around 85% by metacritic, though the chief complaints were that survivors needed more intelligence and several glitches, animations and other minor game-play issues needed modifying.
Pros: Fun, Very addictive, Good graphics and an excellent way to relieve stress, Low specs can play it
Cons: Storyline more an add on than the point, unashamedly violent, Combo system needs work
