20 February 2012
  • Excerpt: For a game that contained so many wonderful elements, Dead Rising 2 was hard to love. Any given moment could find you building a homemade lightsaber, beating zombies to death with a fluorescent dildo, or breaking into a shop so you could try on women's clothing.

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Review

13 October 2011
  • Summary: Off the Record is really a spinoff, sure, but even with the $40 budget pricing, the amount and variety of new content you're getting feels like it falls short.
  • Pros: Dead Rising 2 was a great game, and Off the Record is basically the same, Sandbox Mode is a fun diversion, Frank West and his camera return
  • Cons: Feels like it should be DLC, Sandbox Mode gets old quickly, Camera's role is largely unchanged, Not enough new content to justify the price

  • 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

  • Conclusion: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is worth a punt if you've yet to become acquainted with Fortune City, and although the addition of checkpoints might seem beyond the pale to some, it considerably reduces the frustration factor.
