Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (Xbox 360) review

 

I really enjoyed Dead Rising 2. It was a better game than the original in almost every way. If there was one real problem with it, it was the choice of lead character. Chuck Greene ain't no Frank West. He had emotions, motives, and even some sort of...

The big question here: Is Off The Record different enough from the original Dead Rising 2 to warrant a purchase? For fans of the franchise the answer has got to be yes. There may not be loads added, but considering the budget price it is worth picking...

Capcom - Dead Rising 2

 

Zombies are lonely creatures. They hang around together in huge packs, yet the spark of undead romance is never seen. The reason is obvious: no one caters for zombie love. Unlike normal humans, zombies don't have ...

Let's just say we're very glad the dead have risen again. Pretty much ecstatic, in fact. The satisfying balance Dead Rising 2 manages to strike with its difficulty curve, the constant tension the game evokes, the inventive weapons and the smartly...

Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360) review

 

The zombie outbreak at Willamette changed the world, the military's handling of it didn't help either, they should have cut their losses and nuked the place, but they didn't, and the contagion spread, overwhelming Las Vegas next. Where the zombies went...

All in all Dead Rising 2 does everything a good sequel should, new story, slightly tweaked gameplay, additional game modes, all whilst retaining what made the original so good. I've had, and still am having, a blast in Fortune City, as the game has...

Dead Rising (Xbox 360) review

 

Presentation wise everything is pretty much top notch. The visuals especially are excellent, with everything exceptionally well detailed. So good in fact that the game's cut scenes use the game engine rather than FMV; they don't look as good most of...

A good game that could've been great, but still you'll find it infectious once you're bitten.

Dead Rising 2

 

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.

Clever and brutal weapon combinations ; Focused mission structure keeps you moving ; Psychopaths have disturbing backstories and offer challenging fights ; Tons of hidden secrets to search for ; Striving for completion in cooperative play is fun

Long and frequent load times ; Controls are not always responsive

Dead Rising

 

Dead Rising is the best zombie hacking fun you'll find on any console. Pity about the punishing save system, though, which makes a fun game almost feel like a chore at times.

Hundreds of zombies on screen at once ; Awesome array of weapons at your command ; Open ended gameplay allows you to roam freely or follow set missions ; Looks great in HD

Save system far too punishing

Dead Rising is the zombie game many fans of the genre have been waiting for. It's epic in scope, over the top in its gory execution, and delivers plenty of open-ended fun. We can't wait for the sequel -- as long as they fix the clunky save system.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record (Xbox 360) Review

 

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 Review

 

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

 

The original Dead Rising protagonist, Frank West, is back. But is enough to warrant playing Off The Record?

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

 

What happens in Fortune City stays in Fortune City. Literally.

The promotional review disc for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is labelled with a different name to the one you’ll find in retail stores – one that actually explains what the game is in a better way. The disc, presumably marked with Capcom’s internal...
