Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
The Better Alternative to DR2
I remember seeing DR2 and freaking out over the new combo weapons. When I got the game I thought it was fantastic except one thing: the difficulty of some parts. The psychopaths were very difficult to fight early on and I had to grind to level up just so I could attempt to fight them. After a while I gave up and just played for fun. Then a miracle happened: DR2: Off the Record came out. This was the answer for people who didn't think DR2 could get any better! Frank West's return, new combo weapons, the awesome sandbox mode, the story twist, Uranus Zone, but the most important thing to me was the slightly dumbed down difficulty which made this game playable for anyone who practiced fighting and killing zombies in clever ways. The best part was the generous $39.99 launch price. I love this game and still continue to cherish it's easy to grasp but devilishly fun gameplay.
So awesome then you think...
DR2:OTR is the best game you could have (maybe) It is perfect if you love to play online(I only trust friends)You wouldnt believe what you could do in so much time.To be honest I killed 3215 zombies,If you like to level up and take on Skills before story mode You should do it online.The cheats are amazing and helps alot,If you have this game(Or plan on buying it) then maybe I could give you some tips and we could cause chaos at Fortune City! -rechny7412
What should have been.
Yeah, this is the Dead Rising that should have been put out, but we got stuck with Chuck who isn't terrible, buuut is nowhere as likeable or as charismatic as Frank. This game gives you all the fun that was Dead Rising 2, without the daughter with Zombie AIDS and it adds the fan favorite protagonist with sandbox mode. If you haven't played DR2 yet then get this version, if you have still pick it up used because it's cheap enough without hurting your wallet.
i can say for certain when i played dead rising 2 off the record i thought it would be like dead rising 2 but it is not the sandbox mode is a lot better than terror is reality and on the story it is like dead rising 2 but then again it is not and i like the co-op also
Cash Grab for Capcom...Still Entertains
Basically a carbon copy of Dead Rising 2 without the wussy main character. The addition of the sandbox mode is the best part of this rehash, allowing for endless zombie killing fun. The added combo cards also entertain. In the end, what stands out to me is that this is the version of Dead Rising 2 that should have been originally released.
The Best Yet !
I am addicted to all of the Dead rising series games and this one is my absolute favorite so far! The storyline is very creative, credits go for the writer. The game is very addicting as you crave more and more of revealing the truth of the whole story as you keep your eyes glued to the TV. Even if you get bored from playing the storyline you can get on a new feature from all of the past games didn't have, THE SANDBOX MODE! This mode gives you a chance to get an idea where everything is before, after, or during the storyline. You basically have the privalige to go or do whatever you like in this mode. It even gives you enimies that you will soon face in the game and get a chance to earn some money. I'd play a little bit of the sandbox mode before playing the storyline because the money you earn on the sandbox mode will put it on the storyline as well. I reconmend you buy this game A.S.A.P. !
Frank West Is Vastly Superior
This is essentially the same as Dead Rising 2 more or less. It has a few new quirks but it's basically Dead Rising 2 but with Frank Instead of Chuck. This is honestly the Dead Rising 2 game they should have made cause it's way better than Chuck Greene's. If you haven't played DR2 than I deff recommend playing this game. However if you did than you will prob hate this game cause it's the same exact thing you played and already have.
Frank West Is Back!
Right off this is basically what would happen if frank west was in the story rather than chuck from the orig. DR2, He's Here to once again to get the scoop, After the first story he was called the hero and really let the fame get to him and some how ends up in fortune city,Where a zombie outbreak happens once again, the Area in where you put in is bigger with a brand new theme park added Uranus Zone, There is plenty of more extras goodies as well weapons, Weapons combo cards and bosses! A new addition is a mode called Sandbox where its non stop zombie killing, you don't have to worry about time or Zombrex! and all the pp is carried on to the story and psychos run loose everywhere, so its really great especially if you haven't played the original dr2, Its a Deal for the price that is a given and if your a zombie fan or just want to Hack everything in sight its a Must.
