The Dead Rising is a great series, but Off The Record feels like copy and paste from the regular dead rising 2 game, the story is the same for the most part but, Frank replaces Chuck. There is some neat plot twists from the original story. The map is exactly the same except there is the added theme park area. There is new combo weapons and more missions in story but the game is just a polished Dead rising 2. There is a sandbox mode which is nice. I do recomed renting this game to play, but save your money for better games this fall.
So if you have played the first Dead Rising 2 then you are not going to miss much. Sure they have added a sandbox mode which is cool and a extra 20 minutes to the end of the game but once its all said and done it still feels like the same game. At least rent it for the cool sandbox mode.
