Dead Rising 2: Off the Record (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
2 December 2011
  • Summary: While still a fun game, Off the Record just has to much of a been there done that feel. If you haven't played Dead Rising 2, this is a great buy at $40. That being said, the game is really just the same thing with a shiny new coat of paint. Sandbox mode is awesome, and I hope it returns in future games!

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Off the Record got its start as a proposed idea for DLC: a Dead Rising 2 alternate scenario where you played as Frank West instead of Chuck Greene right from the start of the game. According to a couple of producers I talked to at E3, the project gradually gathered steam until Off the Record got big enough to justify a release as a stand-alone disc.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Game Over Online
4 November 2011
  • Excerpt: When asked, I eventually resorted to describing Off the Record as Super Dead Rising 2 Turbo : an updated re-release of the sort that is uniquely Capcom's style. It doesn't quite render the original game obsolete, since it's a giant ball of almost pure fan service, but it does add in a sandbox mode, and that's almost worth the $40 purchase price all by itself.

  • Conclusion: On the surface, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record has more than enough content to satiate, but the question really comes down to this: are you sick of Dead Rising? If the answer is ‘yes’, then it would be wise to avoid this re-imagining of the previous game in the series. For those who say ‘nay’ however, it’s still good advice to remember that this game, in spite of its better parts, is still something you’ve mostly experienced already.

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Review (Xbox 360)

Gamers Daily News
11 October 2011
  • Summary: This is the best version of a great zombie-killing experience, with significant improvements over the original Dead Rising 2. Nonetheless it does retread a lot of old territory and will be best enjoyed by devoted fans of the series who really wanted a proper sandbox mode, or those who want a good starting point for getting into the franchise.

Over-the-top, extremely violent zombie-killing game.

Common Sense Media
15 February 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Dead Rising 2 is an extremely violent video game. The main player can see hundreds of zombies onscreen at the same time and plow through them with a plethora of weapons -- most of which leave the "undead" enemies in pieces or pools of blood. Gamers can use chainsaws, baseball bats with nails, slot machines and other items to destroy as many zombies as possible.
