Dead Rising 2: Off the Record (Xbox 360)

 

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...

Dead Rising 2 Collector’s Edition (Xbox 360)

 

The Dead Rising formula proves to be as addictive as ever, and a new cooperative mode and weapon crafting system are great additions to the franchise.

Dead Rising 2: Case West

 

There are things that theDead Rising engine does very well and things that it does extremely poorly. A lot of sacrifices wound up being made to support a game that can stick a couple of thousand zombies onscreen at once, which is why all the bosses...

If you played the PS3 or PC versions of DR2, go get Ending S and call it good. That neatly wraps up Chuck's story and makes Case West largely irrelevant. For 360 owners, Case West is worth a couple of playthroughs, but it's just not as fun as the main...

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

 

I feel like I’ve played this game before. Well, that’s kind of because I have. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is Capcom’s ‘reinterpretation’ of Dead Rising 2. While Dead Rising 2 was fantastic (though not without its faults), the biggest hurdle for most...

Frank West is back in the alternate take on the events of Fortune City. Can Frank make it worth a double take? Come inside for the full review.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

 

Though it still does suffer from some of the slowdown and camera issues of past games, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is quite cleaned up from its predecessors. Perhaps most importantly, the frequent load times are lessened quite a bit.

The trainer also features options to increase your inventory slots, your health and more.

We're probably just about this close to getting our fill with zombie games. I mean, don't get us wrong, if something is presented properly and we have an effective way to kill the undead, we're all for it, but between the Left 4 Dead games, Call of...

Also, for that matter, Capcom, why didn’t you redo the inventory screen? It’s still a pain in the neck to maneuver through and way too easy to accidentally drop an item – and when you have the undead on your ass, the last thing you want to do is waste...

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

 

Just in case you haven't had enough zombie slaying over the past year, Capcom is revisiting the Dead Rising franchise (again) and bringing back everyone's favorite photojournalist Frank West.

The return of sandbox mode ; Shared experience ; Still a ton to do

Weak motive ; Issues from DR2 remain ; Stiff animations

Just in case you haven’t had enough zombie slaying over the past year, Capcom is revisiting the Dead Rising franchise (again) and bringing back everyone’s favorite photojournalist Frank West. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is basically the same game we...

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Review

 

Off the Record provides as much entertainment as last year's Dead Rising 2 because it's almost exactly the same game.

The core of Dead Rising is still awesome ; Juggling time is engrossing fun ; Tons of weapons, locations, and secrets to uncover

Almost identical to Dead Rising 2 ; Sandbox mode gets boring fast

Dead Rising is a unique experience that no other franchise quite replicates. But part of the appeal lies in how different it is from other games. There have now been four Dead Rising games released in little more than a year, and this may be a case of...
