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.

Summary: Be careful what you wish for. Since Dead Rising's release in 2006, players have been clamoring for a sandbox mode.
