Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

VideoGamer.com
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. On the other hand, the overall fun factor was stymied by several recurring annoyances - notably some rock hard boss battles, and the late-game arrival of a new enemy type that was a pain in the arse to fight.

Extremely gory adventure uses weapons of mass dismemberment.

  • Summary: Parents need to know Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is an incredibly violent and gory adventure game. It is not for kids, tweens, or teens because of its frequent and excessive violence, blood, and gore. Gamers can rip apart enemies, blow them to bits, dismember and decapitate them, beat them to a pulp with blunt objects, and run over them in vehicles. The game also has some profanity, sexual imagery, and references to alcohol.

  • Conclusion: further off the recipe by adding a full clove of garlic and somehow the lid of the paprika fell off and there was tons of it in the mix. The base is still meatloaf, but it tastes different, which is exactly where Dead Rising 2 is at this point with "Off the Record." Maybe you're getting tired of meatloaf at this point, but this is a Frank West flavored version, with a dash of Herbes du Provence and fresh pepper.

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Review

  • 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

  • Conclusion: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is a textbook definition of a director's cut. Those enjoying it for the first time won't know the difference, those who disliked it won't care, and those who loved the original will be split down the middle in their appreciation of a reworked interpretation.

Expert Review

GameSpot
12 October 2011
  • Summary: Be careful what you wish for. Since Dead Rising's release in 2006, players have been clamoring for a sandbox mode. In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, you finally have a chance to tear through Fortune City without a leash pulling you through, and it's now clear why such an option was absent in the past. It's boring.
  • Pros: The core of Dead Rising is still awesome, Juggling time is engrossing fun, Tons of weapons, locations, and secrets to uncover
  • Cons: Almost identical to Dead Rising 2, Sandbox mode gets boring fast
