This game is really bad and one of the worst sequels ever made. While the AI is improved over the first game, map is bigger and combo weapons are great idea, everything else sucks. First of all and worst of all is the time limit, which is extremely restrictive and everywhere. There is time limit for starting the mission, ending, getting and on top of that there is 24h time limit for medicine you must take to the safe house every time. If you ever wondered why there are not that many speedruns for this game, this is why - time limit doesn't care if you want to just play the story, because missions start at fixed time, meaning if you don't care about boring side quests, you might as well play different game and minimize this one, just to wait for the game to finally start. Killing zombies is fun, but for nearly 15 hours it gets boring fast, especially when there is special, incredibly cheap type of zombie by the end of the game - they are hard to kill, special weapons don't do much and you will notice how useless they are, because after few hits they break. Speaking of story, it's incredibly bad with maybe one or two awesome moments - I can't even describe how bad the ending is, and overtime is even more insulting, because the pawn turns into final boss for no reason at all. Graphics were average when the game came out and it did not age good at all, as for the sound it is pretty non-existent. Another bad thing about it are the bosses, which are incredible bullet sponges OP as heck - the range of their weapons is ridiculous and so is the damage, but the fun does not end here, they get a second or two of invincibility after every hit, so don't waste your ammo thinking you can kill the enemy with the solid round from your sniper rifle, because if you will shoot immidietly before the health bar drops, it won't count as damage done. Different case is with you, though, enemies can kill you in matter of seconds, mostly because dodge is random unlock between levels 13-25 and main character is incredibly slow. AND if that's not enough, the game is incredibly buggy - have fun running into invisible wall in the middle of the road when the uberzombies will kill you, only to find out after reload that the wall is gone. Overall, this is a bad game overall and I can't even describe how annoying and infuriatingit is. There is nothing redeeming this game other than it spawned a much better sequel, Dead Rising 3, which dropped many of the things that were bad in this one.
Dead Rising 2 is the second part of the series about the virus that turns people into zombies. The most interesting feature of this production is the battle against hundreds of enemies simultaneously and the ability to use many found items of everyday use as weapons. Thanks to the capabilities of the graphics engine used in many scenes, there are even several thousand slow zombies simultaneously which was impressive back when it was released and it's looking good even now. Various locations (casinos, luxury hotels, shopping arcades) have been made in great detail and contain a multitude of interactive objects that we can use in our attempt to break through hostile hordes.
Dead Rising 2 improves on the original by keeping what made the original good and interesting while also improving the AI and your arsenal of weapons. The game includes the timed events and rescues of the first game buy ends up being a bit easier to get into and more forgiving, the AI is much improved for other survivors making it easier to have them fight with you or follow you. Story and characters keep the mixture of funny and serious B movie elements that is entertaining throughout the game. The biggest edition is the ability to bring items to a workbench where you can combine them into powerful and entertaining weapons. The only negative when compared to the first game is the loss of the ability to take and save pictures. Well worth buying if you were a fan of the first game.
Imagine the first dead rising,and make it twice as good and wacky.Thats Dead rising 2.Dead rising 2 is a bloody wacky zombie killing game where you play as Chuck in "fortune city" who is battling zombies to get his infected daughter daily doses of "Zombrex" the only medicine that slows down the turning into a zombie,which is the only way she doesn't turn into a zombie as soon as she is bitten.This can get tedious as you need to stop your rampage and murdering of zombies to give it to her every in game morning but the game is good ad for 4.29 on sale it is a great game.
I love Dead Rising. It is the game that made me get an Xbox 360, so naturally, any sequel would appear on my radar. This game does away with grizzled photojournalist Frank West ( who has covered wars) and introduces Chuck, a motocrosser who loves his daughter. This game does away with the fun of a massive mall and gives us totally not Las Vegas, complete with bad magicians and gambling. The weapons get beefed up to 11 with combo weapons now in play, which ass another dimension to the game. The weakest point of this game comes with the lackluster story and the inability to play drop-in drop-out coop with more than one other player. Besides those minute points, this game really shines.
