- Summary: Dead Rising 2 takes the franchise to a new level of zombie-killing fun with tens of thousands of zombies, the all new gambling paradise of Fortune City to explore and conquer plus a host of new in-game objects that can all be used as deadly weapons to stave off the zombie assault. Dead Rising 2 is set several years after the infamous zombie invasion of Willamette. Unfortunately, the zombie virus was not contained at the conclusion of Dead Rising, spreading unchecked throughout the United States and Dead Rising 2 depicts a country where zombie outbreaks continue to strike.

Jan 11, 2011The thing about the Dead Rising series is that it's pretty unique. Killing hordes of zombies with a huge variety of improvised weaponry isn't a genre present anywhere else. It's a great game to just mess around in, picking up random clothing, smashing zombie heads in and fighting away psychopaths.
Me, I wish the game had better inventory control and an item storage system to allow you to really explore all of your weapon options. But it's the other stuff--the still messy survivor AI and poorly built boss battles--that really mars the Dead Rising 2 experience. It's not an impossible game to love, but as with the first game, you'll have to look past a lot of blemishes to find happiness.
Oct 23, 2013AWESOME game!! I just finished the entire thing tonight, and needless to say, this game is amazing!! I love messing around and killing zombies, while completing the game in the process. My favorite part of this game is definitely the story line. The makers did a great job by twisting the story line every now and then, causing you to say, "Wow, I NEVER thought THAT was gonna happen!" or something similar. Also, I don't know what people are talking about with glitches. My game ran absolutely flawlessly at the highest level graphics, so no complaints there either. So, overall, GREAT game. DR is probably one of my favorite game series. So, without a doubt, this game deserves a 10 … Expand
Nov 13, 2011A very good game. Makes it relevant to play it twice or more as you get different endings and also the first playthrough you don't have enough XP to do all.
Be sure to restart from the beginning if you die and do not reload a save. Also don't bother restarting if you miss some stuff as you can always do it in a second playthrough. You will be thougher and you will be able to do more each playthrough.
This game is really good.… Expand

Oct 2, 2010Had potential but too many flaws. My grievances: Same save system as DR1, cannot sprint, everything has a time limit limiting exploration, constantly running to and from the hideout which is out of the way, loading..., escort missions, unbalanced boss battles, Marilyn Manson-sounding music, cutscenes are fully voiced but during gameplay it's all text. Escorting survivors is a pain. If they are being gnawed on by a zombie and you go to save them, you'll end up smacking them instead of the zombie, causing them to turn on you. Or they will get left behind when loading new zones.… Expand
Jul 7, 2011The story wasn't so great, the freedom was little, gameplay was repetitive, bosses were ridiculous, graphics were bad and it LAGGED a lot (even on great computers), it's a RUSHED CONSOLE PORT, it requires Games for Windows Live (awful). I have a GTX NVIDIA video card and it still lags like a motherhumper.
Other than that, the "crafting" system was cool, there's a large variety of weapons and places for you to visit, other stuff...
But don't buy it. You will regret spending that money.… Expand
