Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Standard Edition

Product Description

Dead Rising 2 is set several years after the infamous zombie invasion of Willamette. Unfortunately, the zombie virus was not contained at the conclusion of Dead Rising, spreading throughout the United States.

Manufacturer's Description

Several years have passed since the Wilamette incident, and while Frank West was able to save America from a zombie apocalypse, the cause of zombification was not completely contained. This led to continued zombie outbreaks throughout the United States.

Dead Rising 2 shifts the action from the everyday world of mid-West America to the glitz and glamour of Fortune City, America's latest and greatest entertainment playground. People flock to Fortune City from around the globe to escape from reality and the chance to win big.

Enter former national Motocross champion, Chuck Greene. Before he hit the big time with a team and sponsorship behind him Chuck was forced to repair his own bikes, leaving him incredibly resourceful; a real handyman. A single father, Chuck dotes on his daughter Katey who, since the loss of her mother, he will do anything for.

With hundreds of zombies on screen at any one time, the original Dead Rising forced gamers to turn the everyday objects they found in the Mall into improvised weapons capable of fending off attacks. Dead Rising 2 promises to increase the carnage with even more zombies intent on feasting on human flesh and countless new objects with which Chuck can make the undead dead.

The zombie hordes are on the move and this time it's more than just a shopping centre they've invaded. As new character Chuck Greene you're on a mission to save your daughter as the whole of Las Vegas stand-in Fortune City is overrun.

Death by marlin is just one of the hundreds of options
The paddle saw is certain to become a fan favourite
A croupier's stick also comes in handy for zombie bashing
The Russian underground looks worse than the Northern Line

With thousands of zombies (the slow-moving kind) on screen at once you can't shoot them all, so it's a good job you can also bludgeon them with roulette wheels, croupier sticks and even a stuffed moose head you can wear on your head and run at them with.

There are guns, knives, swords and other more traditional weapons too, including the "paddle saw" - two chainsaws attached to each end of a boat paddle. For the first time you don't just get to use these weapons in the story campaign, but also an all-new multiplayer mode where you must compete to kill (or re-kill) as many of the shambling undead as possible.

Key Features
  • Game of the Dead: A new character, new location and hundreds of new ways to kill the undead makes this the most fun you can possibly have in a zombie apocalypse.
  • Lethal weapons: If you can pick it up you can use it to kill a zombie with - from swords and guns to plant pots, stuffed marlins and every type of chainsaw imaginable.
  • Smash T.V.: Take part in the new Terror is Reality TV show, as Dead Rising goes multiplayer for the first time and you compete online to take out the most zombies possible.
  • Vehicular combat: Chuck is an ex-motorcross champion but it's not just motorbikes he gets to ride but everything from golfcarts to a giant Gladiators style hamsterball.
  • Thousands of 'em: The last game had around 800 zombies on screen at once, this one goes up to a massive 6,000. Their bodies don't disappear until you leave an area either.
About the Developer: Blue Castle Games
The first three games from this Canadian developer were all baseball titles and although well received it was still a big shock when they were announced as the developers of Dead Rising 2, working together with Japanese publisher Capcom to create a more Western-friendly game.

3.0 out of 5 stars RPG zombie survival game 28 Feb. 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have never played the first game so if anyone that has not played Dead Rising before is interested in buying this, just rent/borrow this game. If you like what you have played buy it. This game does require patience. I am not going to go into the story in detail just a brief summary. The character in the game is called Chuck Greene framed for the recent zombie outbreak. The story is not bad but you will probably skip the cutscenes just to do the things you need to do.

The RPG (Role Playing Game) part of this game is that you can upgrade Chuck (you) by saving survivors and killing psychopaths which will give you Prestige Points (PP). The maximum level for Chuck is Level 50. When you gain a new level you can gain more health, speed, attacks, skills as well as gaining combo cards. Combo cards are there to show you what items you can combine into a weapon you can use against the zombies. The weapons you create using the combo cards are useful. The only bad thing about the combo cards is the idea in general; it can hinder the creative part in creating weapons. You might want to create a weapon of your own choice however you can only create the weapons that the combo cards show you (the game). You can dress Chuck in whatever you like from kids superhero robe to high heels.

In the game everything is timed, the story related parts are timed, rescuing people is timed. This can be a good thing or a really bad thing. If you are good at time keeping and want a challenge, the timing is a good thing. The timing in the game makes it feel like a survival game. If you want to take your time and do certain things at a certain pace it is a bad thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be annoying to some gamers. But I love it. 3 Aug. 2011
By Pete
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Right first off, I have finished this game probably about 7 times though the story and about 12 times in total, so hopefully I can give you guys an in-depth reveiw here.

Because the original Dead Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive, alot of people may be trying out Dead Rising for the first time with this game. Firstly, there isnt a game quite like it. It mixes sandboxing and keeping to a time limit, and personally i think this works. The game has no auto-save feature which may put some people off but the way the game is constructed to work around a time scale, and being strategic with when and where you consume food to gain health, i also think this works, personally.
This game offers many features that i have come to like and i would point out as the pro's:

The single player campaign is long and well paced out thanks to the time contraints of missions, and playing through the gam in one playthrough WILL NOT be enough to see it all, This game allows the player to start the game again at any point, whilst still carrying over thier stats, new moves and unlockables to the new game.
The charecter, Chuck Greene can be dressed up in many different clothing found around the various shops and casions around the city including super-hero costumes, baseball outfits, dresses, dinosaur masks and hundreds of others.
The co-op in this game as been designed to allow a friend t join in as their own version of Chuck, complete with each player being able to have different outfits and weapons. The competative multiplayer is kind of fun, but not as much fun as the single/co-op campaign, but any money earned by playing online can be transferred to a singleplayer save game of the players choice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who knew slaughter could be this dull?.. 20 Sept. 2011
By Keith
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, I'll admit that I only got about half way through Dead Rising 2, which doesn't make for a balanced review. But the reasons for that was that it was just too repetitive. I love zombie games and movies and this one's okay but it didn't hold my attention for long. Gameplay is fine. Graphics are fine. Game world is okay in size. Concept is good.

I just felt ... uch.. I can't be bothered. I'll go back to pummeling the crap out of villains in Batman.

4.0 out of 5 stars DeadRising2 11 Aug. 2011
By Benji
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A very good game if you Enjoy slaughtering zombies. However if you are a Call of Duty Zombies fan this game isn't very much like it resulting in the fact that you probably wont like it if that is the only Zombie game you play. It has good Graphics and some funny areas in the game and a good storyline. Hasnt got very much online areas, However you do get a 4 player or less Multiplayer Co-Op where you can invite your friends to your game And a online "This is Terror" I think its called by memory were you do mini-Games for "Big money". Time to state the obvious - It is an 18 so expect some Mildly graphic content. And remember it is a Zombie game so if you don't Enjoy ripping apart Zombies.. This is not the game for you! Out of 5 I have given it a 4 but it's opinionated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Good! 14 Feb. 2011
By Rhyno
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game. I haven't played a game through more than once since Metal Gear Solid on the PS1, but I've done this one twice and I'm sure I'm gonna go a couple more times (each time through takes about 8 hours). Love the fact that you 'level up' as you achieve certain things throughout the game you keep and expand on these attributes when you play again. Online play is pretty good, although perhaps a little repetitive... I only play it to make money to transfer into my story mode game anyway. Overall, well worth a bash, there's loads to do, my two times through have been completely different. Not a lot of thinking involved, just mindless, violent fun! This should keep me tied over until they decide to make 'Grand Theft Auto: Undead City'!
