One of My Favourite Zombie Games

Vausch | Nov. 8, 2015 | See all Vausch's reviews »

Dead Rising 2 is what I would have to consider the best example of a B-Movie zombie game. Capcom's signature terrible writing is on full force here, but it comes together in a way that has a sense of a movie like Sharknado: they honestly don't care and are just having it there so you can get between set pieces with at least some coherency. The combo weapons are great fun and some of them can be absolutely hilarious like the Blanka mask mixed with a car battery electrocuting all zombies near the one you stick it on. Plus there are some homages to some of the better movies like Braindead (Dead-Alive) with the lawnmower combos. Then there's the good ol' sledgehammer and fireaxe combo that will get you through most of the game. I'd say the game's biggest flaw is the balancing system when it comes to upgrades. You have the ability to restart from any chapter with your current upgrades and this became a requirement in order to beat several of the bosses as it took 3 hours into one playthrough and a restart to get a dodge-roll ability, which would have saved me many times beforehand. I think I only wound up beating one of the bosses because he glitched out and got stuck, letting me wail on him until he died. As far as I know this glitch is still there. The other big complaint I'd have is Katie and her Zombrex. Apparently Chuck doesn't trust anyone enough to administer it or never taught her how to give herself an injection because it gets incredibly obnoxious to have to go back and give her some every few hours. It's one of the things I give the spinoff game Off the Record more credit for because Frank can just take it whenever he wants. Aside from all that, it's still a stupidly written but very fun game and I highly recommend it if only for the combo weapons, fun ways to dispose of hundreds if not thousands of zombies, and the hilarious disconnection when Chuck tries to act serious and stoic to Katie telling her with a gravelly voice how he promises they'll get out safely all while wearing Daisy Dukes clothes and a lego-man head.


Vegas zombies

The1337N00Bx | July 18, 2015 | See all The1337N00Bx's reviews »

This game added so much to an already great game. The most notably being item crafting, which adds a ton of new weapon possibilities, all of them being insanely awesome and satisfying. There's nothing quite like running down a Vegas-like strip shooting dildos out of a leaf-blower at zombies. Story isn't anything special, but with how insanely fun this game is, who cares? Plus the psychos are hilariously insane and may be one of my favorite parts of the game. I would highly recommend this game if you're looking for a game to screw around in.


Good fun, but gets repetitive

sycomantis1991 | May 27, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »

This game has so much going for it. Hordes of enemies, a masasive variety of weapons, weapon customization, and a huge shopping district to enjoy it all in. The problem is that the game gets dull a few hours in. When you've exhausted your qweaponm options, and possibly even before that, it starts to dragon on. it has a lot of fun elements, but you're force to re-experience those elements over and over. It's a fun game, but unless you plan on playing 4 hours a month or two, it'll get old fast


Hilarious and serious at the same time

PlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »

This game is not 100% serious. Not even 50%. When you stick a giant teddy bear in a zombie's head and you see it walking away like nothing happened with the bear on... I mean, in which game can you possibly do that? The missions are time-based, so you don't have much time to go around and explore, but you can. And it's SO much fun! Missions are sometimes too hard, you have to check your equipment and make sure you can fight the bosses, otherwise you'll end up in the checkpoint very quickly. The online mode is also hilarious, it's like a TV show and minigames that are just about killing zombies with motorbikes, reaching goals like a TV competition... who ever even came up with that idea? Recommended if you want to have fun!


The best of dead rising

garocco | Feb. 9, 2015 | See all garocco's reviews »

The game is set in the third person, where the player controls the protagonist of the story, Chuck Greene, facing zombies while serving missions within 72 hours (15 hours of gameplay). The game has several new items that can be used to attack zombies, many knives. The game features black humor and comic scenes, as they allow the player to receive various types of clothing, from underwear dresses will other factors. Unlike Dead Rising only supported 800 characters on the screen, the new game continued even has 6,000 zombies can be seen on the screen. The character (Chuck Greene), gains experience throughout the game, (through missions or killing the zombies), the maximum level is still 50, and the attributes gains at each level are random. The scenarios are quite diverse, and the story seems to go in a place with several shops and even casino, probably a hotel or shopping. In the game, multiple items can be tuned, or modified, the degree of violence, the game is great. As the various weapons to kill zombies, there are several ways to interact. The game also allows up to 4 players interact at the same time can battle in different tests based on Reality Show of the story, where the main objective is to kill zombies, and the money raised can be used in solo mode, for the collection of items. For players who prefer not to face, will also co-op, which works the same way as the solo mode. In this game, the player can get unlock all especias in just one day. Dead Rising 2 allows players to create their own weapons by combining items found by maps in workshops scattered throughout the game. The "combo cards" are items that bring instructions for producing weapons.
