In Dead Rising 2, Continued Zombie Outbreaks Have Occurred Throughout the United States and It Is Your Job to Stop Them!
"A shotgun barrel of fun. Angus Deacon, NZGamer
|In Dead Rising 2, the sequel to the million-plus selling Dead Rising, shoot, stab, carve and drive your way through thousands of zombies in the darkly comedic, no holds-barred confines of Fortune City. With two objects, a roll of tape and a little inventiveness you can create advanced zombie-killing combo weapons to help you take out the hungry hoards.|

For the sequel, Blue Castle Games and Capcom took a long, hard look at the first game and addressed nearly all of its major annoyances. The end result is one of the most enjoyable games I've played this year...Even after playing for dozens of hours, you'll still find new things in Dead Rising 2. I won't spoil anything, but there's a lot of variety to be found in the game beyond obvious things like the number of objects that can be used as bludgeons. This game is designed for multiple playthroughs, and I'm looking forward to each and every one of them.

Dead Rising 2's ultimate selling point is the size and scope of the title - you'll never run out of activities to occupy your time. The new weapon-manufacturing mechanic ate up hours of my playthrough; it's so engaging that I let critical missions pass without care. The open-ended nature and ability to start the narrative over while maintaining character progression encouraged me to explore every facet of the game, resulting in an extremely personal and fulfilling experience.

This game is deliciously entertaining as you are literally thrown into every Zombie movie created as you hack, shoot, bash, maim, drive, insert a hundred more Zombie takedowns of your choice to survive in this zombie infested city...This is what gaming should be about sometimes, a mindless and fun destructive experience as you dispatch zombie after zombie. Thankfully the story enhances the overall gameplay that features a plethora of genres from comedy to horror and even romance. The main character in Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene is quite a likeable fellow, so it's easy for the player to relate to this man forced to fend for himself in order to save his daughter. Great stuff!
