I liked this one overall. They've improved a good amount of the problems I had with the first. The survivor A.I. is even good enough to help you deal with the hordes of the undead. I do have some gripes, the game does let the zombies get some really cheap shots at you and the lack of an auto save.
I only played for a few hours but even then I barely scratched the surface of this game. It's a decent game to buy, especially for the co-op. Add good co-op to anything and it's score goes up a few notches in my book.

No. It's great! I owned the first and bought the 2nd, I downloaded Case Zero, and it is all great. The new addition of combining weapons rocks, but it lacks a little in the unarmed combat from the first. Other than that it's bigger, better weapons, and more challenging. Capcom does it again! Don't rent it, buy it!
A good game that has many flaws too it. The best part of the game too me is the zombie killing, I mean it's fun to kill zombies with ANYTHING, You can kill zombies with ketchup and mustard (incredibly fun). The Physchopath battles a.k.a the boss battles in the game can be quite frustrating at times.The saving in the game is OK, but it can be annoying at times. If you fail the case you can either countinue the game and do side missons, kill zombies, rescue suvivors, or just screw around or ( This is probaly the worst part of the game) you have to restart the story ALL THE WAY FROM CASE 1!!!!!
What really makes the game fun is combining the weapons to make "Combo" weapons. Their is really good ones like MMA Gloves + Nails or Gems + Flashlight or even find funny clothes to wear. Mainly you have only 72 hours too complete the game untill the military comes and the game ends. ( which is really only like 8-10 hours in real life).
I mean Dead Rising 2 is MUCH better than the first I love the new Co-op feature in this one makes the game alot easier. I would reccomond playing this game though if you have fun slaughtering zombies with sledge hammers and axes combined or lightsabers.
