Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
14 January 2011
Excerpt: Keiji Inafune said he wanted to try something a bit more interesting than just releasing a demo before Dead Rising 2 hit shelves and that was the seed from which Case Zero ‘s flesh-rotted fruit sprouted. This XBLA exclusive download is going to set gamers back 400 Microsoft points for what amounts to a slice of Dead Rising 2 ‘s pie.
Summary: I actually prefer 'Dead Rising 2: Case Zero " to the full game. Less of the odd quirks pop up in a bite-sized chunk like this, whilst everything from the story to the graphics mirror the quality of the main game.
Conclusion: You will be asked to deliver a zombrex, medicine, to your daughter who will turn into a zombie if not given to her in time. Even if your not a fan you should definitely try this out before you get dead rising 2. In other words its a good buy with earning all achievements will take about 2-4 hours depending on how you now the stage.
Excerpt: Share The word on the street is that Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is just a â€œpremium demo.â€� As a short precursor to Dead Rising 2 it is easy to look at the game as nothing more than the publisher trying to sell what gamers are used to getting for free. Do not be shaken [...
Conclusion: "demo" sells it short. It's a stand-alone title with a story, a variety of optional goals, tons and tons of zombie-killing, and offers a sandbox to play in. This isn't a simple self-contained chunk of the full game; Case 0 is its own thing and for $5 there's quite a bit of game to wade through. Chuck Greene and his infected (but not yet zombified) daughter are stranded in Still Creek, a place just inside the quarantine zone surrounding Las Vegas.
Excerpt: Capcom’s latest zombie-slaughtering romp, Dead Rising 2 , doesn’t shuffle onto consoles until later this month. But if you just can’t wait another couple of weeks to slice and dice your way through hungry hordes of brain eaters, you may want to check out Dead Rising 2: Case Zero . An appetizer of sorts to the meatbag-slaying main course, the DLC entry offers a prologue to new series’ star Chuck Greene’s adventures in the Vegas-like Fortune City.
Excerpt: Rather than releasing a traditional demo to get people interested in the impending release of Dead Rising 2, Capcom have tried something different this time around, releasing Xbox Live Arcade game Dead Rising 2: Case Zero , which acts as a prologue to the upcoming sequel. It may very well be a ploy to get more money out of people, but to be fair Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is still more than just a demo that you buy and is a condensed version of the full game, allowing you...
Conclusion: Looking past the demo complaint, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is more like a pre-release DLC, helping to bridge the gap between the two main installments with an enthralling story, and provides enough zombie skull-bashing that'll keep even the most sadistic of us pleased for hours to come.
Excerpt: from four years ago, Capcom is releasing Dead Rising 2 at the end of the month. As a precursor to DR2, the developers of the game, Blue Castle Games, are releasing a Xbox Live Arcade title, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. This downloadable title (priced at $5) sets the stage for the opening of Dead Rising 2 and also allows the player to start building their character stats up early.
Excerpt: An old, dusty sign says Still Creek’s population is 753, but those were warm bodies. With the undead apocalypse in full swing, the small town is crammed with shuffling corpses, all starving for a piece of motocross champ Chuck Greene and his daughter, Katey. They’ve been stranded here on their way to Fortune City (aka Vegas) — the setting of the upcoming Dead Rising 2 — and their bad luck is our sinful entertainment.
Pros: + Piles of zombie-stompin' fun, with a compelling premise., + Meaty intro to full game for a bite-size price; tweaked mechanics; leveling carries over to full game.
Cons: - Even with more save slots, multiple playthroughs aren't really optional., ? Why is Chuck stupid enough to leave the keys in his truck?
