- Summary: Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, will introduce main protagonist and former motocross champion Chuck Greene and provide a link between the original game and the events that await players in the gambling paradise of Fortune City.
85Looking past the demo complaint, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is more like a pre-release DLC, helping to bridge the gap between the two main installments with an enthralling story, and provides enough zombie skull-bashing that'll keep even the most sadistic of us pleased for hours to come.
We love the new ability to craft an extreme weapon out of a couple of items: you can sample a handful of the full game's countless possibilities - including a Spiked Bat (baseball bat + nails) and head-pulping Drill Bucket (bucket + electric drill) - and discovering new combos and unleashing gonzo gear like the Air Horn (pylon + spray paint) is a blast.
10No offense, but JackyBeans has no concept of what a good game is with a rating of 5/10 for this and 9/10 for Kane and Lynch 2. They also don't seem to get the concept that this is a MINI $5 PREQUEL to the full game that comes out on September 28th. Amazing update to the original game. Great weapons combo system. Increased zombie count from 800 to 7000 on screen at once. What's not to love? Dead Rising is back, baby!… Expand
For five dollars, you get to make Darth Maul like paddle chainsaws, which are awesome and corny at the same time, but mostly awesome. You also get to cleave hundreds of zombies with Broadswords, and smash them with nail covered bats. Not much of a plot, but gets you acquainted with the controls, gives your character a boost in stats, and serves as a great hook.
For five dollars, you can get a large slice of cheese pizza and a small soda.
I choose the zombie killing.… Expand
Meet Chuck Greene. He's trying to save his daughter from being infected, among other things. He has to go to point A and bring item back to point B. Also rescue people, because he's a nice guy.
That's the story. The prologue's story sucks, I'll admit. The added 4 endings, with one "True" ending is nice, but whatever.
Buy this game now though because it is FUN.
Take Dead Rising 1. Give you 1/10th the time limit. Give you the same amount of weapons PLUS weapon combos. Insert thousands of zombies. You have to add and subtract here and there, but you end up with one solid game.
Seriously, this game is better than a demo, because it gives you a full case (level) to play through, and you can carry over progress. It gives you 200 more achievement points, some extra backstory, and hours of replayability. I can play through this entire game in one sitting nice and quick and then go do something else. Perfect to show a friend
If you like zombie stuff, this game's worth the 5 dollars. Let's compare it to critically acclaimed game "Limbo". 1/3 the price. Same 200 achievement points. Limbo is maybe twice as long on your first playthrough (whereas you get better when you know where you'll die and the game gets quicker). Limbo is linear, whereas DR2 has multiple endings and a sanboxy enough feel to just go about finding new ways to kill zombies.
If you can buy any of the Summer of Arcade games this summer, then you can definitely afford this. Stop whining that it's a glorified demo. It's awesome. Buy it. Go make your Electric Rake and have some fun.… Expand
Well overall its a pretty sweet game has a good replayability of it (even after playing it like 8 times just to level up and get all the achievements and get to level 5). but i will just do the pro and con thing to explain it a little more clearly of what i think.
A little taste of what to come for dead rising 2
Sample of a Boss fight only 400 points for what you get in case zero is actually not as bad price.
Can be played over and over
Really short gameplay (1 hour to do all the missions or mess around each story you start)
very short and not that many cases (you go through the cases extremely Quick)
not that many weapons or items (i guess its a demo right)
Some Bugs in the game ( i noticed some freezing as well bugs with zombie's and a couple other things)
Small Map Few survivors to save 1 boss to fight
level 5 Cap
Well thats pretty much it for the pros and Cons for dead rising Case Zero i think they should have made it a Bit longer and the Map a bit bigger just to get your moneys worth out of it. Other than that i think its a pretty good game well worth the 5 bucks for the game. Its definetly worth getting if your wanting to get dead rising 2 or are so you can get a little more of a feel for the new character Chuck Greene and sample things like Combo Weapons, Improvements in the game and just an overall feel of what to expect when you go to fortune city in Dead rising 2.… Expand
