Very Good

Awesome game, better than the first!

Imagine the first one, 5x better, and you have Dead Rising 2. Save system is fixed, tiny text is fixed and the stupid AI that pretty much guaranteed your survivors death is fixed. Will say this, this has the absolute cheapest, most frustrating poker mini game you will ever play. CHEAPEST! It's as if, the computer deals hands to work around what you have. It doesn't seem random at all.

That said, it's an amazing game, all around!

Good, but I was dissapointed

Don't get me wrong, I really like this game, but it really felt like just an updated version of the first.

Customizable weapons are cool, and focusing solely on killing zombies (rather than taking their pictures XD) was a nice improvement

Overall Good game, I expected more tho

Really hope a DR3 will happen and that maybe a new physics engine with more realistic body and environment interactions

However, is there any other game in the world where your hero can have pink hair, a green super hero mask, converse with knee high socks, pocka dotted underwear and a hoover?

Love it.

Is this just a remake with tweeks?

The game overall feels like a remake of the first one. Same motions and same overall layout makes it feel like the first game only made larger. You'd thought the developers would put more into to it to really make it feel like a totally new game especially since they had 4 yrs to do it. The best part of the game is the combo weapons and trying all the different outfits, but even that loses fun due to the time limit. After playing this one for awhile I remember why I didn't finish the first game. I really enjoyed Case Zero so that's why I wanted this game, but I think the DLC was better then the full version. The controls can be clunky at times and the graphics are okay, but the loading in this game is too often and too long. Overall after putting in around 10 hrs I already feel like I kept doing the same thing over and over. If you really liked the first game you'll like this one as well. I give it a rental if you are bored. If you want good zombie games get the Left 4 Dead series or Resident Evil 5.
