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
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
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.
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
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
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.

Kept my teenager entertained for hours and a day,she reckons it was pretty Kööl,although she wasn't able to complete it,but that was more to do with the fact that her next new game we ordered had arrived and so the novelty had worn off for this game..

This is a highly addictive zombie game that is super fun. i played it for hours on end, from bashing zombies to comboing new weapons to bash more zombies with. this is definitely worth buying for $20 if you love zombie games like me. Recommended Buyers Zombie loving gamers or gamers who want to try out zombie games.

Like most I enjoy a good zombie hording game, but when you get to kill them in increasingly fun ways by making ridiculous weapons, and dressing up in hilarious things like a LEGO head. "OH NO! Zombies! Hey looks a hat :D" The mechanics in the game are great, I have also played DR1 and 3, they are great too but this is about No.2, but it's not Number 2 in my books. PLay it yourself and find out what I mean.

I only played the game about 4 times and never played it again. Though that doesn't make this game bad. The weapon's on dead rising one were a bit better. However, I think playing for 72 hours is far to much. Very fun with friends and I think it's a nice game to play when your board.

Following up on the original Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 drops Frank West in favour of Chuck Greene and the backdrop of Zombie infested Las Vegas. Not a lot has changed in terms of game play; you still replay the same time period several times trying to get the best ending. The changes include more zombies than ever before, a crafting system that allows you to come up with bizarre and hilarious weapon combinations and a motorcross zombie killing sport. Like killing zombies? There's plenty of them in here.
