Frank West: He's Covered Wars, Ya Know...

GameCritics.com
3 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Why does Frank suddenly look like the love child of Dan Aykroyd and Mickey Rourke?
  • Pros: Getting to run around with Frank West killing zombies and guards.
  • Cons: The fact that the only way I can play as Frank is by joining in someone else's multiplayer game.

Review: Dead Rising 2: Case West (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
28 February 2011
  • Summary: Much like Case Zero before it, Case West gives Dead Rising fans a treat to close out the year. Being restricted to a single building, Blue Castle Studios streamlines the experience to provide a short burst of zombie slaying action. For the most part, players get more of the same, but the additions provide more mileage out of the Dead Rising 2 experience.

Dead Rising 2: Case West

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: There are things that the Dead Rising engine does very well and things that it does extremely poorly. A lot of sacrifices wound up being made to support a game that can stick a couple of thousand zombies onscreen at once, which is why all the bosses have extremely simple patterns combined with massive invulnerability windows.

  • Summary: Chuck Greene and Frank West are back and ready to pair up in the final action game of 2010. Dead Rising 2: Case West is a fun game, but the dull setting and lack of shopping makes this my least favorite installment yet. Fans of the series will get a kick out of seeing some familiar faces, while everybody else will scratch their head wondering why there were three Dead Rising games in one year! This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

  • Excerpt: Dead Rising's original zombie slayer, Frank West, is something of a rock star. After surviving insurmountable odds in Willamette, the rampaging photo journalist is back on the prowl in Case West. With new enemies, a new setting, and more cooperative play, is this standalone bit of DLC worth investigating?

  • Conclusion: Final Words: A great buy for a Capcom or a Dead Rising fanatic who would like to see Chuck and Frank join forces in order to make one of the most badass zombie-killing team ever! However, the game doesn't offer much more then a fan service for all the Dead Rising fans. But I would still recommend this game, even if it does use a somewhat tired fromula.

Dead Rising 2: Case West Review

VideoGamer.com
5 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Frank West is a popular guy. Over the lengthy course of the original Dead Rising, he won our hearts with his wonky face, his renegade approach to photojournalism, and his ability to pull people's guts out with his bare hands. The fact that he was more than happy to wear women's clothing probably didn't hurt either. As a result of this popularity, there were a fair few disappointed faces when Frank failed to show for duty in Dead Rising 2.

  • Summary: Dead Rising 2's latest dose of zombie-infected DLC brings back fan-favorite Frank West as well as a bunch of new undead-silencing goodies. Grab a buddy, a baseball bat and a box of nails, and prepare to get bloody!
  • Pros: Frank West is back, baby!, Great co-op, New combo weapons
  • Cons: Can't be Frank if playing solo, Co-op is online only

Dead Rising 2: Case West Review

GameZone
4 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I was a huge fan of Case Zero leading up to the release of Dead Rising 2. Dead Rising 2 itself started out well enough, but the more I played it, the more the poor design and utter disappointment became undeniable. I actually quit playing after unlocking the complete Arthur suit of armor, which permanently glitches out the entire map. I saw everything it had to offer, good and bad, and found it to be painfully wanting. Despite all that, I had hope for Case West.
