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

 could of been good but ultimately frustrating!!

First of all let me say when I buy a game my main incentive for a purchase is for the game's main story not for the online side of it.So this is a review based around that fact.

Anyway after many attempts to sit down and really try to enjoy this game I realised it cant be done!
The most frustrating thing about Dead Rising 2 is how every little objective your presented with has a time limit which to me is a complete contradiction of the way the game is presented,here you have the bright lights and glamour of fortune city to explore with legions of the undead to slice,shoot and smash your way through but due to every mission having a set time limit your chances of doing this are few and far between.
For example one of your objectives requires you to locate an item every 24 hours(game time) called zombrex which has to be administered to your young daughter every day to prevent her from turning into one of the walking dead!sounds simple enough right? wrong inbetween this tedious and repetitive challenge you have to also continue completing missions tied into the main story while also being tasked with equally tedious and repetitive rescue missions involving the ironically unfortunate citizens of fortune city all of which need to be completed to achieve the best possible ending and all of which again have time limits.I wouldnt mind so much if these missions where more varied and fun but 90% of the side missions is locate a survivor lead or carry them(depending on the circumstances) to your safehouse through hordes of zombies by running turning round to check they're are not being gang mauled by the undead, running, turning round, running, turning round and occassionly having to repel the undead to clear a safe path for the idiot survivor this gets really repetitive really quickly and the most frustrating thing is your collection of zombie slaying tools are all perishable so you find yourself having to constantly look for maintenance rooms and equipment so you can build "combo weapons" as the majority of weapons(including firearms) you find just lying round fortune city are crap.

I'll stop there as writing this review is nearly as painful as playing this game. just to sum up every aspect of this title indicates you should be given as much time as you want to explore,build weapons and rescue survivors but unfortunately some idiot thought it would be a good idea to give you a set time limit to do all this in which essentially ruins a pretty decent game.

 3 Stars for game play. -2 stars for time

If this game ran on the same engine as the last one, i.e. missions done when you wanted to do them. then this game would be the best game released on ps3. there are so many places to go, so many zombies to kill and hell of a load of laughs. especially when making the weapons. BUT. everything you do has a time limit. which is rediculous, the side missions, you dont mind so much, cuz there is loooooads of them. but the main story missions, if they time out...its game over. the same thing applies for giving katy zombrex. she dies GAME OVER. but you do keep your level and costume when you start over, so the loss isnt that bad, that is if you do lose lol. your going to want to do something but cant because a story missions NEEDS doing. also, the psychos are mega hard to defeat. (talking from a level 10 perspective). consider this review and see if it helps.

After playing the original on the xbox i always hoped it would get a ps3 release (as i prefer the ps3) and i'm not disappointed at all!!! good gore good story and added giggles of making ridiculous weapons out of pretty much everything!! Must own on ps3 in my opinion

 yeah..... not bad

the best piece of advice i can give anyone who is yet to play this game is that patience is the key! in large parts this game is VERY frustrating but be patient and make sure you save alot and i mean alot because you have NO checkpoints between saves and this becomes extremely tedious! never the less this game is ok, lots of weapons with thousands of zombies to slaughter and some great clothes to change into. all in all not bad but nowhere near as good as what i was expecting.

 Good game, but..... (ahem)

Really like this game, although I did think they would have included the 'Gav Choi' character from the first one. You do get a clippit of him having his head removed by the Zombie Guards of the Yungnien, but thats about it. Saying that, it is a great game which I would advise anyone to grab, just don't order a chicken wire curry from Yungnien in a hurry after this one! Ho ho ho!
