Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Review (X360)
4 March 2013
Conclusion: Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is sort of an odd game because while it has features that fans of the series have always wanted, I can't see hardcore fans really having all that much fun with it since they did all of this same exact stuff last year in Dead Rising 2. Ironically, the people that will enjoy Off The Record the most are people who never played Dead Rising 2 and won't appreciate the new features and enhancements anyway.
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: This is the best version of a great zombie-killing experience, with significant improvements over the original Dead Rising 2. Nonetheless it does retread a lot of old territory and will be best enjoyed by devoted fans of the series who really wanted a proper sandbox mode, or those who want a good starting point for getting into the franchise.
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: Frank West ist back! Viele der Fans wünschten sich zuvor einen Sandkasten-Modus für die Zombieserie und wollten den Antihelden erneut in seiner Paraderolle sehen, weswegen Capcom die Bitten der Spieler erhörte und nun mit Dead Rising 2: Off the Record beide Wünsche in Erfüllung gehen lässt. Doch kann das Spielprinzip erneut überzeugen, zumal wir erneut durch dieselbe Stadt wandern?
Pros: Frank West is Back, Checkpoints vermeiden Frust, Spaßiger 2-Player Coop, Markige Sprüche, Jede Menge Action, Kamera-Option ist wieder dabei
Cons: Ähnliche Story, Gleiche, schwammige Steuerung, Sanbox-Modus eher langweilig, Wiederholungen en masse
