Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
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 .
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.
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
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
Excerpt: I really enjoyed Dead Rising 2. It was a better game than the original in almost every way. If there was one real problem with it, it was the choice of lead character. Chuck Greene ain’t no Frank West. He had emotions, motives, and even some sort of personality. Some may say that’s a good thing, personally I missed Frank, and I know I’m not the only one. So Capcom have listened to us and given us what we wanted: Dead Rising 2 starring Frank West.
Excerpt: Vaak als je iets afrondt, reist een jaar later geregeld de gedachte: Dat kon beter. Er had meer uitgehaald kunnen worden. Met de kennis die we nu hebben kunnen we iets nog beter maken. Die ervaring dacht Capcom te hebben om een al bestaande game nog beter te kunnen maken. Dead Rising 2 is dan ook op de schop genomen om verder te kunnen verbeteren. Het resultaat: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
Pros: Extra missies en speelmodus, Het maken van foto's weer mogelijk, Verhaal is op zich prima
Cons: Nog altijd te lang en te veel laden, Game voelt onderhand vrij gedateerd aan, Echte sfeer is soms ver te zoeken

Conclusion: Grafiksel olarak Dead Rising 2’nin hemen hemen aynısı olan Off the Record artık PC kullanıcıları için daha iyi optimize edilmiş. Xbox 360 veya PS3 kullanıcıları da sorunsuz bir şekilde oyunu oynama imkanına kavuşuyorlar, mesela Dead Rising 2’de sinir bozucu olan mekanlar arası yükleme süreleri Off the Record’ta oldukça kısaltılmış. Üstelik oyuna yeni eklenen ve süre sınırlamasını kaldıran Sand Box modunda bu yükleme sürelerinin olmaması sizi çok rahatlatacak.
Conclusion: Capcom riesce ancora una volta a riproporre un gioco vincente rimodernandolo pur restando fedele alle sue radici. Tradotto: prendete i luoghi di Dead Rising 2, aggiungete qualche novità (tra cui la geniale Zona di Urano), sguinzagliateci all'interno i soliti milioni di Zombi e chiamate il primo protagonista della saga a vivere una nuova avventura.
