Dead Rising 2

Fragland
9 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Dead Rising 2 builds further on the foundations of the quite enjoyable first game. This means amongst other things that the story doesn’t matter much. Zombies are standard stuff and for Chuck Greene this means regularly giving his daughter a shot of Zombrex, a medicine that keeps his beloved one...

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (PS3)

  • Excerpt: . I like it a lot, but the biggest gripe I had with the game was the lead character. I understand the developers wanted to throw in a new lead to make the game stand apart from the first game, Dead Rising, but in the end we all missed Frank West, the photographer who became a hero in Willamette.

WorthPlaying
15 October 2011
  • Summary: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record sees photojournalist and original hero of Dead Rising's Willamette incident, Frank West, take center stage as players experience a re-imagining of the Fortune City outbreak. Forget what you know about Dead Rising 2 because Frank West is back in the game!

  • Conclusion: Dead Rising 2 is rated M for Mature with ESRB descriptors of Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, Blood and Gore, Use of Alcohol, Intense Violence, and Language. You do mow down zombies (literally) with a variety of crazy weapons, and there is lots of blood splattered.

  • Excerpt: and its prequel Dead Rising: Case Zero, Capcom has another downloadable add-on for you that picks up at the conclusion of Ending A of Dead Rising 2 (the most likely ending for those diligent enough to get there). Those that experience any other ending will likely be confused though.

Review: Dead Rising 2 for PS3

TechnologyTell
3 January 2011
  • Excerpt: People love zombies and hack-and-slash games, so Capcom decided to give people another dose of Dead Rising 2 . While the original Dead Rising had more of a journalistic spin, especially with photo assignments, Dead Rising 2 is about getting awesome and unique weapons to take down zombies while also...
  • Pros: Co-op added, multiplayer mini-games are fun, can create custom weapons, can customize Chuck, lots of activities in Fortune City, rescued survivors don’t act like idiots, missions well organized, interesting storyline, multiple endings, lots of little secrets and unique items to find and its impos...
  • Cons: Most basic, uncombined weapons aren’t all that effective, can be difficult to swap weapons and items, a free play mode (where time isn’t an issue) would have been nice. Gas zombies will ruin your day (and maybe make you cry) once they start showing up.

Dead Rising 2

Strategy Informer
19 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Dead Rising 2 doesn't exactly build that much on the original game, but then again many would argue that it didn't really need to. If you were a big fan of Frank and his zombie-smashing ways, prepare to make good friends with Chuck and his very familiar journey.
