Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
This game is beast i cant wait to get it (hint: ive played it on my cousins X Box 360) im probs getting it dis weekend I HOPE!! :}
Sandbox mode finally!
The selling point for me was when I found out there was a sandbox mode with no missions and no timers. The mall and strip is yours to just free roam and discover stuff that is easy to miss when you are racing time in campaign mode. The story is basically the same as dead rising 2, which isn't a bad thing. There is also new stuff, a new area with new weapons and combo cards. A visit from Chuck...and he is not doing too well lol. Thank goodness they took out that online arena garbage! This game is well woth the money...you figure if it was DLC you would have to buy dead rising 2 back and the ad-on. Realistically I don't know anyone that did not already trade in DR2. I am a very picky person when it comes to games and I can say I am very pleased with this game! I beat DR2 1 time only so maybe some of you might not like it as much if you beat it numerous times. Make sure you check out sandbox mode there are challenges you can unlock and your XP and money is shared with the campaign...so just roam freely and kill lots of zombies. One last thing easy achievements and the game for some odd reason is alot better with a camera on your neck. Enjoy.
If you liked the second . . .
I have to say, If you were a fan of Dead Rising 2 (Like me), You will probably love this game. The Gameplay is however exactly the same as in Dead Rising 2, just as Frank West. If you played Dead Rising 2 the single player gets old very fast, BECAUSE it is the same thing as DR2, although it is interesting to see what some things would be like If you were Frank West. It has no Long Lasting appeal other than the Co-Op, in which case, it is the most fun Co-Op Experience you could have. The Achievements are also very easy to get, I got 16 Achievements without even trying within 3 hours, So don't worry about trouble of 100%-ing it.
A new Deadrising story!
This game should be a step up from DR2 I hope if I get it, these DR games are probably the best zombie slaughter games ever! I also like the price tag they slapped on it! DR I recommend!
Paddlesaws and Laser Swords: Zombie Hunter Guide
Dead Rising 2 Off the Record makes other zombie games look cheaply made. Anything is your weapon, including your imagination. Combo weapons return, with some new and epic destroyers. Want a laser sword? Throw together gems and a flashlight. Also, unleash your inner bull by creating the burning skull with a bull skull and motor oil. Don't forget unlockable outfits. Be Protoman, or unleash your inner Psychopath with the psycopath outfit, but don't forget your ninja outfit. The story is unforgettable. Frank West returns in a revisioning of the original Dead Rising 2. In CO-OP mode, player two can play as Chuck Greene, another reason to buy it.
YES Frank West is BACK IN THE GAME!!
I just read about this game yesterday and I'm already about to go to the emergency room for a heart attack! This is the exact thing i hoped they would do!!! I could do without that wrestling outfit frank wears in the trailer for TiR.
I think i should get part 2 of this game so i could beat it and wont be lost in the story so tumbs up if you think i should get part 2 thank you bacause dead rising two has funny stuff i saw all that stuff on youtube so thumbs up if you think i should get part 2 also
Good Game Even If It Could Have Been DLC
This could have easily been DLC, but it is in fact it's own game. I will say that that have made minor tweeks to make the game better. There is a checkpoint system(GASP) and survivors are not stupid. they will not run into a pack of zombies and demand to die. I wish the lovely people at Capcom would have made more changes to the story and added a few more "new" areas and I wish one of the psychopaths wasn't actually a loon...no spoilers, but this is a solid game. It might be worth thirty bucks though, but fans of the series should think about picking this one up. People new to the series get ready for crazy ride filled with nail bats and orange juice. No really. OJ is your best friend in this game. Have some on deck at all times. If you like good games then give this one a shot. Now back zombie killing and AWFUL PUNS! Gotta love a bad pun. GET 'EM FRANK!
this looks sweeet. deadrising 1 and 2 mixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dead Rising 2 From a New Perspective
If you have played the original Dead Rising 2, we know Chuck Greene solved the outbreak. Frank West (Dead Rising 1 protagonist) wants to get back in the game, and solve the outbreak himself. This game is basically a story from another character. Dead Rising 2 is the true story, but this new one is from Frank West's perspective, since he has become very washed up because he lied about everything he knew from the original Dead Rising. Hence "Off the Record", because the story is a "What-if". This game is well worth the $40 and is fantastic. My only complaint is loading times but that has been the same for all the Dead Rising games. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is a great zombie game, and fun for any zombie fan! I can't wait for Capcom to release another Dead Rising game!
