Dead Rising 2 is easily high-ranked on my top 10 games of all time. This game is so much fun! Kicking zombies butts with knifes attached to boxing gloves, in a big ♥♥♥ shopping mall is truly f**** amazing. The combo weapons are one of the main new features in this installment. Crazy combinations like a Power Drill+ Spear , Wheelchair+ Battery or even SquirtGun+ Gasoline can cause total DESTRUCTION! But Sadly, the combinations are limited. You can see the different combinations by collecting combo cards, wich can be acquired by leveling up and many other ways. Despite the awesome gameplay, the story is also kinda great. You play as Chuck Greeene, a motocross champion who came with his bitten daughter Katey, to Fortune City( a mix of shopping malls and casinos ) to participate in a reality tv show called ''Terror Is Reality'', in order to win some money to buy his daughter some doses of the highly expensive Zombrex. Then sudddenly, Zombies from the show are released, causing an outbreak in Fortune City. And if things werent bad enough, Chuck is claimed by the medias, ''responsible'' for causing the outbreak. So basically the main goal of the story is to clear your name and escape Fortune City. One of the good things about this game, is that you are not in obligation to follow the story. This is great for younger players who wants to mess around and have some fun killing the zombies. However, one thing I dont like about Dead Rising 2 is the psychopaths/bosses. Some of them like the chef, are way too hard to defeat when you are low level and dont know the game very well. In my opinion, the most easy and proper way to defeat them, is by grabbing one or two snipers, a couple of orange juice/lobster and some magazines that increases the damage you inflict with guns. That is just boring for a boss battle. In conclusion, if you are new to Deadrising , get this game. And if you are already familiar with the franchise, get Off The Record. In this version of DeadRising 2, Frank West ( Hero of the first Deadrising), is the main protagonist. The game also includes a Sandbox mode. A mode where you have no objectives and can do whatever you want! So go check it out! I rate DR2 8/10 for its zombie killing madness.
