About Dead Rising® 2

About this game

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.

Key Features

  • 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.

While Not As Good As The 1st, I Am Skeptical Why Fanatical Doesn't Carry The First Game, However, This One Is Fun To Play If You Love Killing Some Zombies, And Love Gore, Grab This Game, It Won't Disappoint.

Dead Rising 2 is probably the most unique zombie game ever made. Instead of fighting for survival in a post apocalyptic world, in Dead Rising 2 you are fighting in the post apocalyptic tv show "Terror is Reality" for money. You need the money to buy medicine for your zombie virus infected daughter. That's not all the game also features "zombie rights" organisations and activists, a grand government conspiracy, las vegas heists, a whole lot of corruption and some really weird world building. With all of that as a backdrop you are slaughtering your way through the hordes of zombies in search for valuable items and to work off the list of checkpoints. The zombie killing part is excellent. There is a ton of weapon variety, but not that much enemy variety. The levels are okay in terms of layout, but really well made in terms of looks. In general the game has a great art style. Sound is okay too. The graphics looks a bit dated, but that is to be expected by the game's age alone. However there are problems. Some parts of the game are repetitive, the controls and especially the camera are not very good (you basically need a controller to play the game, forget the mouse and keyboard controls) and the game has it's fair share of glitches and bugs, especially in areas that are full of zombies. You gotta have some "jank" tolerance to finish the game, but it's not nearly as bad as some other pc ports of it's time. In general, I can definitely recommend Dead Rising 2, not just for it's gameplay, but the setting and style alone.

Dead Rising 2's gameplay hasn't aged very well, nor have its graphics.
