I've covered wars y'know - Frank West 2016
Well it looks like Frank can look after himself - He's covered wars y'know.
Only downside to the game is that Xbox One controllers do not work unless you download extra software.
The best dead rising. Nothing but good ol' zombie bashing. Grab a friend and have fun throwing random objects at zombies.
When Dead Rising was good
Any game with an insane postman who accuses me of mail fraud, then proceeds to try and murder me with an infinite supply of mail bombs and a shotgun gets a 10/10 in my book
Oh man I loved this game. Multi-player was so much fun.
One of my favorite games as of now. Let's get right to it.
- The classic Frank West
- Lots of fun to use combo weapons
- Improved controls from the first game (hated accidentally football tackling when I'm moving)
- Easy to memorize skill moves
- Uranus Zone
- Great co-op play
- Sandbox mode, the best thing to happen to Dead Rising
- Great new psychopaths (one of which is my favorite in the whole franchise)
- Poor performance on laptops, regardless of the specs
- No controller support
I've covered wars you know
Good game just to pal around in with friends or just goof off on your own.
The best game in the Dead Rising Series.
It takes the second game and replaces dull Chuck with Frank, improves zombie count, load times, the map/UI, the Zombrex system, Zombrex locations. It's a refinement of the second game with the best character of the series at the helm.
This game is so much better than the original Dead Rising in pretty much every aspect. Gameplay is more fun because of the bigger variety in weapons, the combat feels less clunky overall, the game has a better setting making it more fun to explore the area and there is more variety to the environments visually and there is a much higher level of interaction with the world with just more items to interact with in general. The survivors ai is by far the biggest improvement, it’s actually good. They follow you pretty well and their pathfinding is pretty good too. I hated Frank West in the original but In this game he is far less annoying and cringe worthy making him at least bearable. The dialogue, voiceacting and plot is also now bearable which it wasn’t in the original for me. It’s not a good story by any means but it is far better than the original. I think this is a good and very fun zombie game. It’s one of those sequels that does exactly what sequels should do which is improve on every aspect of the original.
The definitive version of Dead Rising 2. There is no need to play Dead Rising 2 when Off the Record exists. It features a better character, more weapons, a bigger map, and more zombies. My favorite game in the series is the first, but from a technical standpoint, Off the Record is superior.
better purchase than dead rising 2
Don't listen to all the people whining in the reviews ....
- This game DOES HAVE controller support and runs flawlessly
Honestly I've only just started off the record but all these reviews saying no controller compatibility confuse the ♥♥♥♥ outa me as I literally turned my controller on and BAM works fine so God knows why it doesn't work for others. But anyway
I have always enjoyed this series and am continuing to do so since I bought the bundle of all 4 games
Haven't really found any issues yet myself having played only a couple hours of DR2 DR2:OTR and DR3
BEST GAME EVER (FUNNEST AND FUNNY IN CO - OP
