Dead Rising 2 builds on the combat system of Dead Rising where anything that could be picked up could be used as a weapon, by considerably increasing the number of items Chuck will find in Fortune City's casinos, bars and shops. Just as in the original Chuck will be able to make use of items that range from 'traditional' weapons like guns and swords to the more improvised such as roulette wheels, croupier sticks, wheelchairs and stuffed marlins. But Dead Rising 2 takes combat one stage further with a set of truly unique weapons including the paddle-saw (two chain-saws attached to either end of a canoe paddle) and the self-explanatory drill bucket.
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.
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.

I then simply had to purchase the full game to continue fueling my zombie killing addiction; It came today and I have been playing it all afternoon and evening. I simply cannot remember the last time I had this much fun playing a game. It's one of those games where you don't mind dying and realising you haven't saved for two hours because - hey! what the hell! - let's just do it all again, 'cos this time I'll use different weapons/toys. You simply don't mind retreading the same path because you can modify what happens each time. Or decide to do a different sub-mission first.
And here's the important bit: so far (total of about 25 hours playing time and nowhere near the end of the game) IT NEVER GETS BORING! I thought, like the first one, I would get bored killing zombies - no matter how many ways they gave me to do it. As I said earlier: I couldn't be more wrong.
Kudos has to go to the developers as they have obviously spent an awful lot of time with the game engine and mechanics. You can pick up pretty much everything to pummel (or cut, or shoot or bludgen etc.) the zombies.Read more ›
You play the game as Chuck, who has been framed for letting the Zombies into the city, and your main quest is to prove your innocence. The area is not too large that you can spend weeks exploring, nor is it too small where after 10 minutes you have seen everything. There are shops to go in, upper and lower levels, underground, roof tops and outside and all are crawling with zombies. To complete your tasks, you have to do them within a certain time limit. This can be seen with a bar that slowly fills up and as it gets closer changes colour to red. If you fail the main tasks, you should re-load and try to get there quicker!
Also along the way there are various side quests such as saving survivors, giving your daughter medicine to stop her becoming a zombie etc. This adds to the game as you can complete them (if you decide to do them) in any order. You must ALWAYS give your daughter the medicine between 7am - 8am every day otherwise its game over so remember to get some so that you can get back to the safe house and administer it.
The brilliant thing is that any items that you pickup can be used as a weapon. Blocks of timber, wrench, tray, plates, machines, benches, knifes, and items that have a wrench by them can be combined in the maintenance room to make new more powerful weapons. The first one you make is the baseball bat with nails to make a spiked bat. Boxing gloves with a bowie knife make knife gloves like wolverine.Read more ›
