"A Must-Get."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Dead rising 2 is not rubbish. Its replayability is excellent not only because there are multiple endings to achieve and unlimited number of zombies to kill but also due to the fact that there are mods and trainers out there to spice up the game.

I have recently downloaded a mod which gives you unlimited ammo and forever durability on some weapons. The mod also allows me to carry multiple freedom bears at once. So what I do is I set out 4 freedombear as sentry guns and have 8 followers with machine guns and sniper rifles and do the endless slaughter. Blood everywhere :)

The initial patch takes about 10 minutes max. No trouble for me at all. Oh except for the User control thing that restricted me from installing the game at the beginning. I just needed to disable it during the installation.

Great game. Get it. My favourite weapon is slege hammer. Love the sounds it makes when it comes into contact with zombie flesh :)

"Blue Castle pulled it off"
5 stars"

At first I wasn't really sure about this game, as it was developed by a company that's only noteable title's are baseball games. But I was pleasantly surprised, Alot of the faulty AI in the first game has been polished off, now the survivors actually pose some use and can pathfind very well. The game's replay value is immense with 6 different endings that cater to whatever playstyle you pick. The timelimit can come as a flaw to some but with the ability to restart on a whim with all your previous bonuses it eliminates difficulty for those struggling, and allows you to continue rampaging without any real cost. Some complain that the time limit hinders the freeroam aspect, however taking into account you don't “need” to follow the storyline they give you an adequate amount of time to screw around. The only real gripe I have with this game is how they have setup the online, with no set server list, waiting for people to join your game can be tiresome. Other than that this is a really good game, with incredibly fun and well made co-op and single player elements. Would definetly recommend.

"Blood & guts & fun!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a fun 3rd person splatter fest with extra points for the sheer number of zombies as well as the great variety of weapons and combo weapons (that you make) to choose from. Its not deep or meaningful – its simply fun. It is also good practice for real life, as we all know that a zombie apocalypse is pretty well inevitable!

Description

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.

“…Dead Rising's PC debut is an addictive open-world adventure that expertly balances its bloody combat with a goofy sense of humor.” 8.5/10 Gamespot

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

“…Dead Rising's PC debut is an addictive open-world adventure that expertly balances its bloody combat with a goofy sense of humor…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
