The sequel to the million-plus selling Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 sees the player take on the role of former Motocross champion Chuck Greene, who has come to Fortune City, America's newest gambling paradise, to compete in "Terror is Reality," a gruesome game show that dares contestants to survive zombie-filled environments for big money prizes at the delight of TV audiences around the globe. Chuck's motivation for taking part and risking life and limb is his daughter Katey, who since being bitten by a zombie requires a daily dose of Zombrex to prevent her from turning into one of the living dead. There's no denying that Zombrex works, but since it's the only drug on the market, its price is high.

During his time in Fortune City a zombie outbreak occurs and Chuck must survive the onslaught of the undead for 72 hours. Pitted against two fearsome threats - tens of thousands of zombies and the constant countdown of the clock - while potentially rescuing other survivors of the zombie apocalypse, players must also unravel the greater conspiracy behind the outbreak and as importantly find the Zombrex necessary to stop Katey from joining the ever growing zombie horde. Players will shoot, stab, carve and drive their way through enemies in order to beat the clock and survive 72hours in the darkly comedic, no holds-barred confines of Fortune City.

Dead Rising 2 will deliver more of the signature gameplay that the series is known for plus a number of new features.

Players who might need some help or simply want to share the zombie bashing fun with a friend will now be able to play in online 2-player co-op. Simply use the in-game transceiver to call for assistance at any time and once your partner has accepted, they will arrive by your side for double the action.

With hundreds of zombies on screen at any one time, the original Dead Rising forced gamers to take everyday objects they found in the Mall and use them as weapons. But now, in Dead Rising 2 with thousands of zombies filling every square inch of Fortune City, Chuck is going to need to be even more resourceful and inventive by creating combination weapons to save the day. Players will be able to take two objects, a roll of tape and with a little inventiveness create an advanced zombie-killing combo weapon - a piece of wood and a lawnmower become Portamower, the handheld mower that cuts zombies down to size in an instant; while a garden rake and car battery combine to create an electrified zombie prod. The more combo weapons a player uses, the more Prestige Points (PPs) they will gain along the way in order to level up Chuck.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

  • Thousands of Zombies On Screen: The undead are everywhere creating a dynamic and challenging zombie-killing experience for the player as weapons will be created to kill massive amounts of zombies at one time!

    New Storyline and Characters: A new protagonist, Chuck Greene, is just the beginning in a long list of new characters, new survivors and new more vicious psychos that will be introduced to fans in the new world of Dead Rising

    2-Player Co-Op: Co-op play is introduced to the Dead Rising universe for the first time as players can invite their friends to partner up with them at any time to take on the zombie massacre- tag-team style! Play with a friend and have even more fun as you lure zombies in using strategic items like a toy helicopter or a firecracker. Once the zombies have gathered, your friend can rain bullets from above or shoot at a strategically-placed gas tank to create a deadly explosion that will take out masses of the enemy. Killing zombies with a friend is always more fun!

    Terror is Reality: Allows 4 players to compete in a gladiator type show that pits zombies against a group of players in the ultimate Vs. multiplayer blood bath

    Combo Weapons: Players can combine two everyday items using duct tape to create the ultimate zombie killing creations such as the Portamower and Paddlesaw. Unlocking combo cards along the way will give players the advantage as the helpful cards will show you what items are best for combining. The more zombies you destroy using your creative combo's, the more Prestige Points you can earn which levels up Chuck along the way

 Great Game, best in a while good graphics

| | See all dale1234's reviews (2)

it is a good game with lots to do, as far as the controls go you can change them but not ingame, there is a txt file in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Capcom\Dead Rising 2\data\controls" called keymap.txt you can change the controls there, make a copy and work from the copy tho, for 2 reasons,
1. its read only and requires admin privilages to change it.
2. its a good idea in case you mess it up.
as far as gameplay is concerned its flawless once you get the controls sorted, the graphics are great, the storyline is immersive, lots of short cut scenes, i like that in a game it keeps you in with the story, one thing to note tho is that you should save whenever you are near a save point.q

This is a true sequal it plays exactly like the first game with time allocated tasks and you have to save people. Same awesome cutscenes. With added multiplayer called "Terror is Reality" to let you win ingame cash to spend on your singleplayer game.

Cheaper yet more customisable with mods than consoles, with faster loading times than consoles.

But let the buyer beware you need a decent graphic card to run it check the requirements.

 Good but lacks.....

Decent and fun game the first 2 play throughs but after that gets really boring and easy, the game really needs difficulty settings. When you play co-op its not much fun because again too easy nothing is made harder from single player to co-op, was easy enough on my 1st play thru single player.
The game also needs some more variation in the objectives and tasks. The multiplayer feature is decent but would be nice to be able to customize the settings i.e have all 8 events playable then do the finale.

 Could have been a great game!

Reviewing this for the PC only, NOT consol version!
This game had the potential to be a very entertaining game, either solo or as a coop. However, this game loses 2 points because of one serious flaw that is unforgivable by the developers/publishers. You CANNOTcustomize the controls in game! For a PC game I expect to be able to change the control configuration to my own preferences. The GFX are ok and fairly scalable. There is a story line, sort of. It can get chaotic and great fun, but it can also be frustrating trying to play with someone elses idea of optimum key configuration.
There is one thing that saves this game from the rubbish bin and that is the fact that some clever begger has found the file that the key binding resides. Do a google for "dead rising 2 control" and you will see that with a little fiddling you can set it to pretty much any key bind you like. Then, email the devs and tell them what muppets they are just like I intend too! Maybe, with enough pestering they will release a patch to correct this, we can always hope!
Once the controls are sorted out though it starts to be a pretty good game, although not in the same class as Left4Dead/Left4Dead2.
My advice, as it is with control issues, wait until it comes out on budget.
