Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: When Dead Rising 2 released last year, there were two very loud criticisms from gamers who felt that, yet again, they weren't getting the zombie slaying title they really wanted Capcom to deliver. The game failed to make Fortune City a totally open and unrestricted world by elminating the time-sensitive quests, a demand left over from the first Dead Rising .

  • Conclusion: Off The Record is the way Dead Rising 2 should have been to begin with. But the lack of improvements to the aging gameplay, it is clear that this game is a quick repressing that didn't get the love it truly deserved.

  • Excerpt: I don’t mind revisiting fun games that have received updates, upgrades, and improvements. I do, however, question a publisher’s decision to reissue an average game with little in the way of significant enhancements.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

  • Conclusion: Dead Rising is a unique experience that no other franchise quite replicates. But part of the appeal lies in how different it is from other games. There have now been four Dead Rising games released in little more than a year, and this may be a case of too much of a good thing. Off the Record just doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from previous games in the series, so even the most ardent fans should be resistant to dive in again.
  • Pros: The core of Dead Rising is still awesome, Juggling time is engrossing fun, Tons of weapons, locations, and secrets to uncover.
  • Cons: Almost identical to Dead Rising 2, Sandbox mode gets boring fast.

  • Excerpt: Though the Capcom's zombies usually come with a Resident Evil name tag, Dead Rising 2's crawling out from the shadows once again with Off the Record, just in time for Halloween. The original saw Chuck Greene fighting and scraping by in the midst of a zombie outbreak in the Vegas-inspired Fortune City, but now it's time for veteran photographer Frank West to make his comeback.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record review

GamesRadar
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: For most gamers, Dead Rising has always been a love it or hate it franchise. The first game gave players a volatile mix of creative zombie slaying with a very strict time table for objectives. Last year’s sequel softened the series up a little and added a ton of fun new ways to kill zombies, but still had its fair share of annoying foibles that made the game more hardcore or frustrating depending on your disposition.
  • Pros: Killing hundreds of zombies is always fun, Embraces series’ campy spirit, Fixes several longstanding issues
  • Cons: Save system still not completely fixed, Boring, repetitive boss battles, Ultimately a retread of a year-old game

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review - PS3

Gamepur
20 February 2012
  • Summary: Dead Rising 2 fixed almost all the issues and flaws that fans of the franchise had with the original "Dead Rising". The developer also added numerous features and improvements that left fans wanting more. However there was one very important thing missing from the sequel, hardened photojournalist "Frank West".
  • Pros: Good Story, Awesome Vibrant Environments, Tons of Weapons and Combinations
  • Cons: Limited Combats, Sluggish Controls

  • Pros: A myriad of ways to eliminate zombies, graphics is great, you can combine weapons.
  • Cons: Nothing really new as this is Dead Rising 2 with a different hero and not a great deal of replay value for this title.
