Reviews for Dead Rising 2 Classics


Zombie killing at it's finest.

If ever I had to pick at a game that perfected zombie killing, it's Dead Rising and the sequel to the classic game is no different. The fact you can pick up and use anything as a weapon is a great concept alone but now they have added the ability to combine two objects together in order to create a much stronger weapon (e.g. a spear combined with a drill). The addition of two player co-op also gives depth and is a great improvement over the lonely feel of the first game. There are very minor issues such as loading times but all in all, this is a fantastic game and an essential to any zombie fans collection.


Awesome zombie fun!

Dead Rising 2. What a game. What is there to say? A game about a competition-winning father (Chuck Green) who keeps his bitten daughter safe while he searches for food, supplies, and a cure for the zombie virus. In a game where the topic is so morbid, Capcom has managed to had unimaginable amounts of humour to a game such as this, as the player is able to wear miniskirts, slide down water rides, or even drive a car in a mall; everyone's dream come true. I would not ever recommend this game to a father who has a daughter around the age of five years old, as the facial expressions in the storyline will bring any grown man to his knees and make him weep as he watches Chuck assure his daughter that everything will be okay, though, both the player and the character doubts the truth behind it. There is never a dull moment in Dead Rising 2, because there is just too much to do! Leveling up, killing zombies, going to the gym, trying on clothes, finding food, and even doing minigames; it's too much to do in one playthrough, so there is an endless amount of times you can play this game, so the replay potential skyrockets. A definite buy for anyone who loves seeing the blood of zombies spray over every wall, floor and object. 5 Stars all the way.


Fun free roam zombie massacres

While dead rising 2 is fun alone, it is best played as a co-op game, as the crazy ways to kill zombies are so much better with a friend. The multiplayer option is not really that good, sort of a zombie game show type thing, but it works ok as a little extra on top of the main game. The story is great and far fetched, which is how it should be, but it is just as fun to completely ignore the quests and just have fun killing zombies in the craziest way imaginable. Overall a great game.
