Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review
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.
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.
Conclusion: GLITCHES/BUGS/ISSUES: i never encountered any bugs or glitches. also the load times have been improved over the first but the framerate is isnt that great. ACHIEVEMENTS: the achievements are funner then the first but they are also easier PROS: the gameplay is fun as usual, the soundtrack is great,...
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.
Excerpt: Just in case you havenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t had enough zombie slaying over the past year, Capcom is revisiting the Dead Rising franchise (again) and bringing back everyoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s favorite photojournalist Frank West.
Pros: + The return of sandbox mode, + Shared experience, + Still a ton to do
Cons: Weak motive, Issues from DR2 remain, Stiff animations
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.
Excerpt: As Capcom experiments with offshoots of the Resident Evil franchise (like the team-based Raccoon City), Dead Rising has slowly become its zombie-killing mainstay, spanning four standalone games in 14 months. Is that a good thing? After our Off the Record slaughterfest, we’re not so sure.
Pros: + Twists to the Dead Rising 2 story add great fan service; new theme-park area is fun to explore/slay in., + Slight tweaks make the main campaign less irritating; Sandbox mode is a fun new way to explore.
Cons: ? Why is coffee creamer (still) one of the strongest healing items?
