First Dead Rising was like a Metal Gear Solid of the zombie games.
Serious and original investigation story (That's right, zombie game over here.), Likable characters, Fresh experience to both zombie action and survival games, Good soundtrack, Believable psychopaths, Interesting photo mechanics. Along with everything above, DR never took itself too serious, that's why it was so charismatic.
None of that in Dead Rising 2. And i feel great shame that PC gamers had to ruin their experience with this piece of ♥♥♥♥, instead of playing actual masterpiece like first DR.
DR2 is like a degenerate brother of the first one, cliched and rushed story and sudden change of style, turning franchise into some ♥♥♥♥ing comedy up to the third game. ruining survival feel to it and completely turning it into an action game. Few annoying gameplay choices that at first ruined this game for me. Most annoying of them all is zombrex hunt for your daughter, it makes game very limited for exploration. which is unforgivable for open-world sandbox games like DR. As i remember, first DR had possible but hardcore missions and newbie traps, it required you to get used to it, i didn't mind failing and leveling up a little more to complete the story line, it gave you enough time for that and it felt fair. In DR2 you are punished for not knowing locations of zombrex along with other factors, that limit your free-playtime, FORCING you into multiply re-starts if you are playing for fun. New main character is pretty likable because he represents the player in this new "insane and random" style, making him the only sane sober-thinking person in the game, not much else though. As i said, this franchise has gone into the same thing that Saints Row did, game that focuses on the fun-factor and comedy/parody more than anything else. But it failed even with that there for a bit. Now that i've finished bashing this game, i would like to say a few nice things. Gore is really good, more ways to kill zombies with a new crafting system. more drivable transport, few good psychopath themes. Buy DR Off the record though. Because Frank West + more content + fixes.
