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: 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.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

  • 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?

  • Excerpt: Dead Rising образца 2006 года была удивительной игрой, у которой не было и не могло быть будущего. Издевательски неудобная, не прощающая ни единой ошибки, сделанная по многократно устаревшим лекалам японского геймдизайна (достаточно уже того, что персонаж не мог одновременно ходить и стрелять), она, тем не менее, отлично справлялась со своей задачей — учила игрока выживать .

Test : Dead Rising 2 : Off the Record

Game Blog
21 October 2011
  • Conclusion: S'il n'y avait pas eu Dead Rising 2, Off The Record aurait largement mérité ses 4 étoiles mais les ressemblances avec le volet précédent sont trop nombreuses pour ne pas se demander si Capcom n'a voulu encore une fois exploiter le filon au maximum. Certes, le jeu est moins cher (40€ sur Xbox 360 et PS3, 30€ sur PC) que les autres volets mais cela n'est pas suffisant pour en justifier l'achat si vous êtes fan.
