Why?? Why do developers feel compelled to shoe-horn crappy multiplayer into every game? This looks completely stupid. I thought Dead Rising was supposed to be scary, quirky Japanese flavor and have some tension.. Not screaming "USA! USA! USA! I'm a UFC testoroned 15 year old and I want to cut something up or beat someones azz!" These new dev's are butchering the game. Not only have you whored it to every platform, it looks like the game is missing all of its style from the original classic.. and it's still taking forever to get done. /rant
Sort of agree GEC. I don't like the WWE/UFC style of 'gameshow' they have chosen, if they are going to do a multiplayer element based off a gameshow, why not use one of the quirky Japanese styles of gameshow? Still looking forward to it though.
Agree, it's as if they have sold the whole idea of the game out in order to simply make it more appealing to the American gamer public. Sure, they do have a huge gamer share, but so does Europe, and if they even want to keep Japan onside, then they need to keep some flavour in the game/s from their country of origin. Not my style of game, and I won't be getting this other than review code, thankfully.
Can not wait for this awesome game. LP2 will be cool, but DR2...best Capcom game this gen confirmed! The first was too awesome. Its still in my top 5 favorite 360 games!
I hated Dead Rising 1, doubt ill get this one, but its nice to see that its not just a Single Player game anymore.
the first game was terrible in my opinion and really dont have any hope for this one.....
Agreed, plus it's doubtful that'll now make it past the OFLC here in Australia. Way to go Capcom, make the game even more gory and make sure the board knocks it back - 10 points - not.
First one played like a last gen game. I wouldn't expect much more from this.
Fail. It was one of the first 360 games released. going from trailers, it definitely looks like a graphics upgrade and refinements in gameplay.
You're right about that mate, it was one of the very first-gen releases for the 360, alongside COD2, which also looked a tad woahful actually, it wasn't until their second gen of games that many developers started to come to grips with things, and only now dev are just starting to work properly with the 360 as well as the PS3.
Multiplayer in this would be insane!
