Rated 9 out of 10 by snakeVenom4 Dead Rising 2 FTW
Let me start out by saying that this game isn't scary, but WHO CARES! The storyline is entertaining and there are ALOT of zombies. So much that they fill the entire hallways. You can use anything to kill these flesh hungry zombies and you can also combine wepons to create the ultamate zombie-chopping tool! The graffics could have been better. The only main problem is the time limit. It makes you feel like you have to rush and you can't have too much fun killing zombies. Its basically the same as the first, only they've added online multiplayer and co-op. The competitive part of the multiplayer is where you compete on a show called Terror is Reality. You compete against 3 other players in mini-games trying to win money which can be used in the main storyline. The co-op portion of the game is cool because you can roam the zombie infested Fortune City with a buddy by your side. PP and money earned from playing co-op can be transfered to your game. Overal, this is a great game if you don't mind the time limit.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Conjur An average game with too much comedy
This game has a lot to offer but it gets too repetitive. Story is ok but pretty short, it gets annoying having to wait a certain amount of time to advance in the story. The choice of weapons is nice, everything can be used as a weapon and there are a lot of different outfits to try on. The multiplayer is not that fun, especially the co-op. If you don't have a friend to play co-op with it can take a VERY long time to find someone to play with online. There are not enough areas to explore in this game and you have to stare at the loading screen far too much. There are a few vehicles in the game that can be purchased, but the areas are so small that the vehicles are not fun. I thought that there was too much comedy in this game, it did not feel like a real zombie game. This game is pretty good the first time through but gets boring the second time. This game feels more like a novelty than an actual zombie game. A little suspense and horror would have been nice.
Rated 5 out of 10 by EpicBehemoth Just got it ........kinda lame hope it gets better
Ok I just got this game today and heres what I have to say about it :D. The games graphics kinda suck it all looks really bad and dull if it had better graphics like well Infamous 2 is getting or Resident Evil 5 it would be a lot more fun. BUT! graphics are not what makes a game good gameplay is and well this is what I think- First of all the whole game is on a time limit which really sucks like you all ways feel rushed which isn't cool also I think that since the game is on a time limit you should walk a little faster! You run so slow in the game hes like a turtle its really frustrating >:( also the characters don't talk its all text letters which feels weird because I am on a PS3 not a DS ! But the good things about the game is killing zombies is fun I like how you can make combo weapons and I LOVE THAT YOU LEVEL UP ! thats a really good thing about the game its really fun cuz your constantly unlocking things and that feels good. My overall rating - 5 out of 10 its not that good :( Thanks for reading my review.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ZRSLAYER A Better Apocalypse
When Dead Risng first came out, the game satified and appalled many due to slaying hundreds of zombies with everyday items and a finicky save system. This game fixes the problems that frustrated those who played the first game and made it perhapst one of the best offline and online co-op(online only)games i have played yet this year. The fun combo weapons are a joy to play with and discovering new ones is always satifying and a nesesity since the story will challenge you(yes there is a story, its memorable, tough, and the zombies play a large role in it). Now the bad. You are on a timer at all times and not doing a side mission, case file, or giving Katey her zombrex in the elapsed time will result in you restarting the game, loading a saved file(this game saves by save points)or the best option to continue playing to toughen up and prepare for the road ahead. This game is co-op or 4 player competitive so you can play through the story or play the competitiive and fun game show terror is reality for ingame cash. Enjoy!
Rated 9 out of 10 by RatedRKO69 A Fun Experience
I had Dead Rising 2 pre ordered about 3 months before it came out and the wait was killing me. When it finally came out i was excited to try it because i'd seen my friend play the first one and it looked entertaining. Well i can say the samee about the second one. Basically the goal is to complete missions, which have time limits unfortunately, but that doesn't take away from the fun. Your goals are to finish the story and to save survivors. Going out into the city and fighting zombies with anything you can find is just an entertaining prosppect, and that's where this game really shines. It's fun to just pick up a trash can and throw it right into a zombie's face. The only downsides are you don't have permanent guns like the first one, and co op can be a bit difficult as you need your partner close and can end up hurting them by accident. However playing co op does make the game more fun and simpler when it comes down to it. I definitely recommend thiis game to pretty much anyone who's just looking for a game to have a good time with.
Rated 9 out of 10 by JacobB Excellence in all its glory.
I had some fun with Dead Rising one but I was blown away with DR2. I'll keep it short and to the point.
Gameplay: Its good, real good. Really casual. Great for gamers that appreciate humor with a twist. The weapons you make give you endless possiblities of killin' zombies. Much more enjoyable than the first DR.
Graphics: Improved but not anything spectacular.
Sound: Melee attacks are wicked. The guns could use an extra more "oomf" feeling.
Unlockables: Every level up you get a new combo card. That means more ways to kill zombies! Cool moves and perks earned almost every level.
Length: Once you beat the story you can play it again but whats even better is you keep your special moves you learn. You can play forever.
Companions: I never felt it was worth the trouble to save people in the first DR because it was boring. Now its more fun.
Replay value: I dont want to sell this game. Great for laughs.
Weapons: You can combine almost anything to kill zombies. Endless opportunities. More carnage than ever.
This is excellence in all its glory.
Rated 5 out of 10 by MSchri2008 Save Your Money!!
I am very disappointed in Capcom because Dead Rising 2 still has all the same problems that the first game had. In fact, this game seems to be more frustrating than being fun. The reason being is the boss fights and the sluggish animations are all a pain in the rear to get around. The boss fight are completely unfair because they take very little damage from you and when they strike you, you lose a big percentage of your life. Also, the animations are complete garbage because when you are struck by a zombie or boss your stunned for about 2-3 seconds which gives the zombie or boss to take advantage of. The only good thing Capcom did for this problematic sequel is allowing you to create new unique weapons. Do not let Capcom take your hard working $60 from you because this game is no where near the $60 worth. However, I suggest renting this game only if your still interested in playing this game.
Rated 8 out of 10 second verse, same as the first... a bit better.
A much better game then the First Dead Rising. problem is, its the same game. yeah new plot and funnier, cooler weapons' but you still have the annoying timers. I wanna be able to smash zombie to little bits using the most idiotic methods i can. yes there is overtime to extend the game and an infinite mode to do whatever i want, but in infinite mode I'm constantly weighed down by searching for food which is even harder to find then it is in story. the game timer isn't even properly accurate at all. apparently everyone takes 20 minutes to walk through a door and 3 hours go by within one. Multiplayer is surprisingly fun, for something that's not that great. its amusing to fight people on who gets to kill the zombie, but after awhile it just gets boring and turns into a grind for money. some basic plot twists, which aren't that twisty, massive amounts of zombies that I'm not allowed to slaughter with out being told to do some stupid errand before a timer goes out. In all its an amusing game besides its lake of luster. get it used, try it. if its not your cop o' tea then just return it.
