"Far exeeding its predecessor, yet holding its own identity."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Much fun is to be had in Dead rising 2, other than the game including all the features listed on the box, dead rising 2 has improved on the two major faults existing within the first game, these being the poor shooting system and the lack of zombie models (the fact that large numbers of identical zombies would be on the screen at once). Although these things didn't stop the first game from being excellent, they did break the immersion a bit. These problems completed solved in DR2, along with the ability to combine weapons, the comical story-line and unusually likable characters aid with the player spending shameful amounts of time in front of their screens.

The games major fault is the save system and load times. The load times in DR2 are painfully long, as well as loading a game after dying, I went to the trouble of installing the game onto my hard-drive, and still load times reaching up to 20 seconds (doesn't sound like much but it adds up, especially when moving from area to area). The save system is also troublesome as there are nowhere near enough scattered around the huge environment.

Dead Rising 2 is a solid game with tonnes of replay value, although the load times really break up the story, this is made up by the sheer joy of hacking zombies to bits.

"Zombies rock!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm a huge horror fan and although it's no left 4 dead, it's still pretty awesome. Your daughter has been infected and you have to find antidotes for her…big problem…ZOMBIES! The coolest thing about this game is the weapons you can make. It becomes pretty brutal. On the way you have to rescue others aswell, so your never short of things to do! Awesum hack and slash game. A must for zombie lovers everywhere. A massive improvement on the first 1.

Awesome game, improves on the first in so many ways. The weapon customization is incredible. A must buy for fans of the dead rising series and action games alike.

Description

Dead Rising 2 features the same zombie-smashing fun of its predecessor, plus two-player cooperative play.

When America's latest and greatest gambling paradise Fortune City is hit by a zombie outbreak, Chuck must do whatever it takes to survive. Pitted against tens of thousands of zombies, some serious psychos and the constant countdown of the clock, he's got 72 hours to save himself and his daughter.

“…just about every aspect of this game is entertaining” 8.5/10 Gamespot
“…It’s not the smoothest game…however that doesn’t mean a thing when the game’s this much fun.” 8/10 – IGN

Combo Cards and Combo Weapons
Take two everyday items and a roll of tape and what do you get? The ultimate zombie killing weapon, that's what! Look out for Combo Cards – they'll show you the best items to combine and help you gain lots of extra Prestige Points.

Zombies and Psychos
DR2 ramps up the carnage with 1000s of zombies on screen at once and, just to make things even more interesting, they've added a whole host of hellish psychos too. The undead and unstable are everywhere and you're in charge of dealing with them – and you get to do it with weapons that are created to kill masses in one go!

Co-op Play
Co-op play comes to the world of Dead Rising for the first time, and lets you buddy up with a friend to let loose some serious tag-team terror on the undead! Plus you've got multiplayer mayhem as four players get the chance to enter the Terror Is Reality arena and take on packs of zombies in this gloriously gory game show.

Fun in Fortune City
The glitz and glamour of the world's premier entertainment resort may have been replaced by guts and gore, but that doesn't mean you can't have a good time. Packed full of the best clubs and casinos, bars and bistros, shopping malls and shows, you're going to have a killer time!

Reviews

“…delicately balances wanton destruction with thoughtful objectives. Just about every aspect of this game is entertaining, ensuring that you're having a good time whether you're fighting psychopaths, rescuing survivors, or just trying to find hidden secrets. The weapon-creation system continually rewards you with unique ways to kill your brain-starved foes, but it's the tight structure that provides the main draw. Because you're continually pushed from one objective to the next, you don't have time to dwell on small problems. It would have been nice to be able to put a waypoint on your map, and the driving controls are still horrible, but it's worth putting up with these issues just to experience the brutal joy that is buried within. There are a lot of zombie games out there, but this game proves that killing brain-dead foes can offer more than just mindless fun. Dead Rising 2 is a great sequel to one of the most original open-world games available.” Gamespot 8.5/10

“It’s not the smoothest game…however that doesn’t mean a thing when the game’s this much fun. Using a car battery and a Street Fighter mask to electrocute the undead and a set of knives and a pair of boxing gloves to make Wolverine claws are all great times. Watching Chuck get covered in blood as he slays thousands of zombies, changing outfits so that one minute you’re in a toddler clothes with a LEGO head and the next you’re in a sundress, and listening to completely whacked out boss stories – that’s what I remember about Dead Rising 2. Any issue the game might have just falls to the backburner.” 8/10 – IGN
