Product Details:

Just when you think you're safe from having your brains eaten, another zombie apocalypse always seems to spring up. Frank West saved America from being overrun by zombies in the original Dead Rising, but the cause of the zombification was never completely contained, leaving the door open for future zombie outbreaks. Dead Rising 2 picks up the story several years later, and this time Fortune City, the entertainment capital of America, is the site of the next zombie convention. Unfortunately, what happens in Fortune City will not stay in Fortune City if motocross champion Chuck Greene is unable to stem the zombie tide.

Dead Rising 2 shifts the action from the everyday world of mid-West America to the glitz and glamour of Fortune City, America's latest and greatest entertainment playground. People flock to Fortune City from around the globe to escape from reality and the chance to win big.

The game sees the introduction of former national Motocross champion, Chuck Greene, as the main protagonist. Before he hit the big time with a team and sponsorship behind him Chuck was forced to repair his own bikes, leaving him incredibly resourceful; a real handyman. A single father, Chuck dotes on his daughter Katey who, since the loss of her mother, he will do anything for.

With hundreds of zombies on screen at any one time, the original Dead Rising forced gamers to turn the everyday objects they found in the Mall into improvised weapons capable of fending off attacks.

Dead Rising 2 promises to increase the carnage with even more zombies intent on feasting on human flesh and countless new objects with which Chuck can make the undead dead. Dead Rising 2 is being developed by Canadian developer Blue Castle Games in close collaboration with Capcom. A number of members from the original Dead Rising team will be working alongside Blue Castle Games throughout the development process, including Capcom's global head of research and development, Keiji Inafune, who as the game's Producer, will play an active role in the project.

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 9.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fun but it can be a challenge i love third person games like gta where you can get in a car and do anything this game is just like that.. graphics are ok the thing i hate about it is that you have to go to a bathroom and save it and if you die you need to start in the last time you saved it and the bosses are too hard

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dead Rising 2 Dead Rising 2 is a great game. The game is similar to the first, you are in a mall waiting for someone to come rescue you. But in Dead Rising 2, you start out playing as Chuck Greene who is a competitor in a PPV called TIR (Terror is Reality). TIR is also a minigame in the game that you can play and is easy to follow (simply put, you kill zombies in 4 different kinds of game types). Once you complete TIR in the campaign, you return backstage and it turns out that the zombies used in the show have escaped and panic has ensued. Chuck, and his daughter, escaped into the mall's safe zone. When all has settled, it turns out that Chuck has been blamed for what has happened. From there you try to clear your name. That is all I am going to say so I don't give out a lot of spoilers, but if you want to find out, I recommend that you give this game a chance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun zombie killing game It was a very fun sequel to dead rising released in 2006 or 2007 but i enjoyed dead rising 2 the graphics are amazing i can hear the sound great and the game play is very fun to kill over millions of zombies with all types of weapons wear all types of clothing and the cut seances of the game REALLY show your characters attire for once in maybe any game which makes it very fun the lasting appeal is great i play the game for an whole hour and the 5 minutes later i play for 8 more hours and when the story gets old it is always fun to play the awesome terror is reality mini-games online and after that gets old then it is fun to redo the main campaign with a friend online and just look at blood and zombies everywhere on your screen and the combo weapons system is very funny and fun so i would say pick this one up.....FOR ZOMBIE KILLING FUN!!!!1

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My stupid decisions ruined this game Let me begin to say Dead Rising 2 is awesome, and yes its fun! Why exactly did i give it a 1 star? Let me explain to you that i was caught in the fun going around killing zombies, finding weapons and money until i didn't realize i was TIMED on my main quest. I accidently saved my progress after hours and days of success and when i did, i proceeded to go back to the security room when BOOM "Case 3 Expires". So okay i loaded it again and BOOM again "Case 3 Expires". Am i stuck? Am i forced to really start all over again? I mean the only 3 lousy options i have is "Load, Restart Story, or Continue Playing. Obviously i'd like to know the main story. Loading is not a option now, Restarting Story ain't happening and Continue Playing without knowing the main storyline is just MAD. I'm disappointed, mainly games have auto save OR if the makers were smart enough maybe the main quest wouldn't be timed. I easily returned the game and quit and my dreams of getting Dead Rising 3 has fallen. Onto another game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good and entertaining This game is very fun and gives hours of entertainment. The story grips hold and you don't want to stop. Whether it's playing through the story, fighting psychopaths (the bosses in the game), or trying to win big at the casino. the only problem was the fact that when you changed clothes Chuck fiddled with them for like an hour, so zombies could easily get you during that time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dead Rising 2 - Open World Mess of Mayhem Dead Rising 2 reached out to me simply because I love zombies, but I had no knowledge of the style of the game before I bought it. You start out as Chuck Greene, a motorcross star of some sort in a Reality is Terror show or something, and the Dead Rising world is already zombie infected, but it was controlled until all of a sudden after the show, somebody lets loose all the caged zombies to wreak havoc. You are blamed for the release of the zombies and set out to try and clear your name, but every mission is under a strict time limit. There is a variety of missions, and not all of them have to be completed whatsoever, but you'd be sitting still for a long time because main missions only happen every so often. You'll spend a lot of time in side missions trying to save other survivors and bringing them back to the safe house, but they are usually rather weak and can get in the way or turn against you easily. There are like "boss-maniacs" who tend to take 1000 bullets or 100 hits with a bat before they die, assuming that is you dont die over and over like me because they're so hard to kill a lot of the time. There is multiplayer coop but it is somewhat broken and a player will get kicked out randomly when saving or sometimes moving between missions. There is also a Terror is Realty multiplayer mode, but it is pretty much tacked on arcade type games with not a lot of purpose. This game's campaign does provide a lot of weapon customization and decent variety of weapons to hit some zombies with, but overall the game is kinda of a frustrating time limited free roam and has some bugs, but if you're just there for smashing zombies it'll definitley be fun with a buddy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great sequel to a master piece With such an amazing game like Dead Rising, it would take a lot of work for Capcom to match or even surpass it's greatness. Fortunately, they did not disappoint one bit. Dead Rising 2 focuses around a new protagonist named Chuck Greene, who is trapped in fortune city with his infected daughter. It's up to you to save survivors, kill psychopaths, find zombrex for your daughter, and clear your name after being framed for the outbreak. The game plays just like the original. You fight zombies using anything and everything as a weapon and you level up to unlock new skills, better stats, and new combo cards. The AI for survivors has improved since the last installment and, thanks to a new game engine, there are even more zombies on screen at any one time. The ability to take pictures to level up was sadly removed, but the new combo weapon mechanic makes up for it. You can combined certain item together to make awesome, devastating, and awe inspiring combo weapons to lay waste to all who appose you. There are some problems here and there, but the pros defiantly out-weigh the cons in this remarkable sequel.
