    Case Zero doesn't add much to the Dead Rising 2 experience, but it's cheap and offers lots of fun and replayability.

    Case West remains an interesting add-on every fan of the franchise needs to own. I do have an issue with the fact that the price point has been doubled compared to Case Zero.

    Apart from the main story missions, of which there are only three, and the handful of survivors that need your help, there's not a lot else to do apart from slaughter as many zombies and bad guys as you can.

    The Xbox 360 exclusive add-ons in the Case Zero prequel, and here in the Case West finale give the game a fitting introduction and end.

    The hack and slash excellence of Dead Rising 2 returns with the added flavor of photography. It is a win/win situation.

    Another excellent download that's arguably more entertaining than the main game, with an improved co-op mode and a more focused adventure.

    While there's still fun to be had in slicing, bludgeoning, and shooting zombies, the surrounding elements in Case West are far less conducive to amplifying it. Die-hard Dead Rising completionists need only apply.

    Great DLC that I really enjoyed playing. Extremely fun co-op, lots of weapons and outfits, great graphics, a good short story, and chuck and frank are both amazing characters. It's but sweet addition to an already great game. Highly recommend:) Expand

    After Case Zero I was expecting another fantastic downloadable game, and I wasn't disappointed, the story is fantastic, and the co-op is excellent, and it may be short but the high replay value makes up for this, and the few new gameplay changes and new weapons are a blast, my only complaint is that there isn't any quest marker for finding survivors so you'll have to find them at random which isn't that bad but I find it a little annoying, but if you loved Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 2 you'll love this.

    I have really be anticipating this game and my hopes were not shattered. Case West is a sequel to DR2 which tells the story of Frank West and Chuck Greene. They rescue survivors, kill guards and ultimately, survive. The game ends with question marks all over your head. Is there going to be Dead Rising 3? Is the game canon? Let's wait and see. Expand

    Case Zero is short simple and fun. The new weapons are a joy, and the Camera fits right back in where it should be. My only problems are that this game follows the second best ending(A) and not the True ending(S). If this is what is cannon then boy did they mess up there, but other then that gripe, this is an enjoyable zombie romp that does it's best to bring together the 2 games further. Expand
