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.

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

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.

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.
