Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

 

Off the Record isn't a terrible game. It's still has the same gameplay systems and wacky combo weapons as the original DR2, flaws and all. It just doesn't need to exist and I struggle to find any reason to recommend it.

Dead Rising 2 Mod & Tweak Guide

Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360, PS3) Review

 

Chuck Green has 72 hours to clear his name, keep his daughter alive and save as many people as possible. Oh, and there are thousands of zombies everywhere.

Huge variety of zombie-killing tools ; Better storyline than the first game ; Improved save and survivor systems ; Multiplayer helps to enrich single player game

Slight slowdown issues ; Long load times ; Time-based missions can become a chore at points

Four years after the release of the original Dead Rising, Blue Castle Games, in association with Capcom, brings the next chapter in zombie brawling terror, Dead Rising 2. With hopes high of improvements over the first game, will this title fly off...

"Killing zombies is one thing; killing our downtime with a poorly designed, nonsensical and patchwork game is another. "

Dead Rising 2 Review

 

Hell's still full and Dead Rising is still zombie killing heaven

Appreciation for first game's unique charm, new approach to survivors and psychopaths, gratuitous zombie killing

Multiplayer, goofy story, Fortune City is too much like Willamette Mall
