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

After playing the DLC on xbox 360 of dead rising 2 case zero im impressed and cant wait for the full release,

fans of the first dead rising whether you hated it or loved it this ticks all the boxes, the combat and whole control scheme has been fixed it feels smooth an great finally being able to aim properly, the driving controlls feel comfortable and right also,

Although frank west and the camera has gone the PP + time limit still remains and chuck makes a great new hero to the series, i cant wait for the full release and say to people who cant decide download the 4pound dlc and that will have your mind made up! worth it.

 Very Good Game

Being a fan of the first dead rising game it would be hard of me to put this game down. After playing the "Case Zero" DLC and now having the game itself I can see that the wait was definitly worth it for this new spectacle of Zombie killing goodness.
The gameplay is much the same as the previous dead rising game with the core of it simply being: whatever you can find, use to kill zombies. It has undergone a major upgrade graphically from the previous game making characters and objects much more detailed, not least to mention now there can be over 7000 zombies present on the players screen at one time.
The game also now boasts a new "combo" mechanic, whereby the player is able to combine certain weapons into all new weapons to be used against the hordes, such as the "paddle saw", two chainsaws and a kayak paddle and the "boomstick" a pitchfork with a shotgun.
The PP system from the previous game is back allowing players to level up, however the photography mechanic is gone and instead players are rewarded for stylish kills, recusing suriviors etc.
Co-Op online is another great new feature in which you are able to take the zombie genocide online with a friend or two and let loose with, or against them for your own delight.
The story is the final complelling feature and paints Chuck Greene, this games protagonist, to be much more interesting than the previous Frank West. Chuck seems to have more personality and emotion than Frank "personality of a brick wall" West, and the storyline itself will keep you interested enough to deviate from zombie genocide to play through a mission every so often.
In total its a very good game and I would reccomend it to anyone who just doesnt like dead things ruining a good casino.

Really great game. I played the 1st dead rising and was looking forward to this game and was not disapointed at all. The same as the 1st game just with a few noticeable improvements and fresh twist. What makes the game is it's replayability, which is important as the main story line is only around 8 hours. You don't even have to touch the story line to have fun though, you could quite easily spend hours exploring fortune city and killing the zombie menace. All in all great game, fun, humorous and engrossing. You won't be disapointed with your purchase.

 The Undead have never been so much fun

After Downloading Case zero and playing it to DEATH, forgive the pun, I could not wait to get Dead rising 2 ,And was it worth getting oh yes ,There is just so much more detail and fun to have ,everything can be used as a weapon or combined to make better weapons ,Killing the Zombie's is now a guilty pleasure ,You have to try the paddle saw ,then try and stop smilling as you cut the zombie's clean in half .You really have to buy this game its just pure zombie killing fun . I give it a huge 10 out of 10. Also I was lucky enough to get the Outbreak Edition with the 12 inch tall figure of Burt the Zombie + a Bonus DVD and a DLC code for a new skill.
I must say that I was going to buy this game along with halo reach but after playing reach on my friends Xbox I found it to be a bit old hat ,Seen it all before nothing new ,where as DR2 feels fresh and modern and not just a sequel. One of the best horror games by far .

Dead Rising 2, a Zombie slasher set in an overrun Casino complex. If you enjoyed playing as Frank West in the first Dead Rising then you shouldn't have any trouble transitioning into the shoes of jaded biker Chuck Greene as you roam the Zombie riddled streets of a Las Vegas styled Fortune City.
It pretty much is the first Dead Rising in a nutshell, but enough new material has been injected into the game to keep it a fresh and satisfying experience. The extremely tedious manner of rescuing survivors has been eliminated, which in my opinion made it a little too easy to escort them back to the safe room at times, which was one of the more challenging aspects of the first game.
The most notable addition to the game are the combo cards, where you can splice two random items together to create a plethora of crazy weapons to dispatch your undead foes. However the way the game runs, leaving you with rarely any time to explore the city itself, means that you maybe don't have enough time to take advantage of these combo cards as you should, as well as other aspects of the game such as the juices and magazines.
Hence it seems Dead Rising 2 is not a game for a person who will only play a game through once. In fact it is screaming to be played over and over again and you will find yourself enjoying it more and more with each play-through. It's not the smoothest of games and often feels like the first Dead Rising, but these issues will be pushed to the back of your mind, because Dead Rising 2 is, at its core, a cheesy, bloody and unashamedly fun game.
