Dead Rising 2,
This game hits on all cylinders! Your Chuck Greene and you have 72 hours to clear your name, save all survivors, and kill any zombie that gets in your way.
Trophy Difficulty - 6.5/10
This is not a game that you will be able to platinum in one sitting. It will be a long grind of zombie killing, there is a trophy that requires 72,000 zombie kills. Gamefly wins again, no late fees! Most of the trophies you will get when free-roaming after you beat the game. If you need to tame a kitty, use 3 steaks. Take out psychos with boxing gloves/bowie knife, or with the six shooter. There is only one hidden trophy and its, "Tape it or Die." You get this by combining a Queen with Nectar. Nectar you get by combing beer and jelly beans or milk and orange juice. Collectibles, I hate collectibles, but it seems that every game has to have you run around finding hidden objects throughout the game. This one is no different with about 10 trophies coming from finding and using different objects in the game. All in all, not too difficult just takes time running around.
What can I say about Dead Rising 2? Despite all of the mindless violence, average story line, and bizarre nature of this game; it is actually quite fun to play. The creators knew what their focus for the game was and they drove it home.
The Pros: The game has a fully interactive environment. You can practically grab, throw, eat, and wear anything that is around you. You can gamble at the slot machines, you can eat a bag of chips, you have a whole array of weapons to use to fight off the Zombie Invasion! You can combine weapons to make new weapons. You can drive motorcycles, golf carts, cars, and even ride tricycles to get from one destination to another; while mowing over zombies in the process. I can't tell you how funny it was to watch the main character knock over zombies while riding a small, pink tricycle. You just keep playing to see what new things you will interact with.
The Cons: The game is just a lot of blood and guts zombie slaying; the story line is pretty average and nothing to get excited about. The load time between cut scenes and environments is painfully long and the characters don't speak much aside from a select set of phrases. If you play for an extended period of time without saving and you happen to die, you have to start from the last save point or restart the story and this can be frustrating.
Dead Rising 2 definitely isn't for everyone, but try it out and see what you think for yourself. After first playing it, I put it down and was ready to return it, but held off for the weekend. I picked it up again because I was curious and now I've logged quite a few hours.
