Dead Rising 2: Off The Record
17 February 2012
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, the load times are improved, the achievements are fun. cons: framerate. why all the thumbs down?
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.
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
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. At a budget price, Off the Record represents surprisingly decent value, and who out there doesn't like cross-dressing and clubbing zombies to death? Exactly.
Excerpt: Hail to the King…Frank is back baby….Groovy! Remember the first Dead Rising? The buzz you had when you realised you were playing Dawn of The Dead in video game format. The mad weapons, the photography it just seemed so fresh. Well when the second dead rising came out, something just didn’t feel right. Yeah, it was all well and good playing as new protagonist, Chuck and his story to try and save his little girl, but there wasn’t enough to get excited about.
Pros: Sanbox Mode, loads of extra content, Frank’s Back, check points for the “weaker” gamers out there.
Cons: It can get a little bit repetitive, some psycho bosses are very annoying.

Summary: Si les aventures de Frank West ont déjà donné suite à une séquelle, il était étonnant de ne pas y retrouver ce dernier en tant que protagoniste. Les multiples pétitions et boycottages n’y ont rien fait, et Dead Rising 2 conserva le très décrié Chuck Greene. Si le Dead Rising : Case West initiait déjà une forme de mea culpa de l’éditeur, Dead Rising : Off the Record est la réponse à leur appel.
Pros: Vendu à bas prix, Mode Bac à Sable, Un jeu toujours aussi efficace, La nouvelle zone de jeu, Le retour de Frank West et de son appareil photo
Cons: Le mode Terror Is Reality a disparu, Trop peu de nouveautés pour les joueurs de Dead Rising 2
