Topic: Playing "Dead Rising 2".
I bought it last week and I'm loving every minute of it. The only thing that kind of sucks is the online servers. I've only managed to find game matches twice when trying to connect to multiplayer. Still, the game is awesome! If you played and loved the first "Dead Rising", then am sure you'll find this often-delayed sequel to be worth the wait. I have it on the XBOX 360 and got a head start by importing my saved character from the prequel "Case Zero". I've played over ten hours and have enjoyed every aspect of the game so far.
For starters, the game plays almost exactly like the first, but it's been improved in every way. There are more save slots (three to be exact), better survivor A.I. and smoother controls. As a result, the game is alot more enjoyable than the first. Additionally, there are more zombies on-screen, more weapons (which can now be combined for humorous, but deadly results) and more gore. Lots of it. In fact, as you slash away at zombies, Chuck will get splashed by the red stuff. The game is also funny. Just wait until you see what Chuck can use as a wardrobe! The psychotic boss characters are creepy as they are silly. Oh, yea and if you've ever wanted to see a machine gun-mounted wheelchair, well, it's here too!
"Dead Rising 2" is a great comic horror game. And just because you can finish it in less than 12 hours, don't think it's a short game. Like the original, it's meant to be mastered more than once. I would say it's definitely a game you'll want to beat at least three times!
