    Dead Rising 2 still feels like such a great improvement over the original and with this remastered version, most of the technical issues from the past console versions have been fixed.

    Overall it’s well worth revisiting Fortune City on your PS4.

    It's one of those games that pays back the time you invest into it at least double fold. Returning players won't find anything substantially new in this remaster aside from sharper image quality and better performance, but given the budget pricing here, that's a perfectly reasonable offer.

    Waiting for the fourth installment of the series, Capcom is celebrating the tenth anniversary of Dead Rising with a remastered version of the three adventures of Frank West and Chuck Greene. The renovation work does nothing but conform to today's standards, presenting the three episodes in high definition with a frame rate set to 60 fps.

The characters in this game aren't as interesting as the first game either which is why i find this game a tad disappointing but overall Dead Rising 2 is a great sequel to a fantastic original!

    Dead Rising 2 : PS4 crash paranoia edition.

    First of all the good parts, 60fps, very smooth, very nice to have the best Dead Rising game, updated and rereleased on PS4 from the PS3. However it's almost ruined by crashes randomly almost all of the time. Online connectivity is worse, increasing the number of crashes. This game never crashed, not once on PS3, thumbs down to Capcom for not patching or fixing this rushed release. Online TIR is dead so why have trophies for those so long after the game's release. At the very least Capcom could have implemented bots. This isn't a must avoid game, far from it, II love it so much that I bought it knowing it was buggy, I was willing to put up with all the port issues with it. Sadly I can't give it a high review because of all these issues. The game will crash if you throw a Hail mary into a crowded area of casino gambling machines, this also happens on PS4 version of DR2 OTR as well.

    However, if you're going to buy this game, just make sure you save very often, and prepare for the inevitable crashes that will inevitably happen. Frustratingly it always seems to happen for me when you're just about to save after mowing over thousands of zombies going for the high kill count trophies...
