First Look: Dead Rising 2 on PS3

"When zombies first descended on the shoppers of fictional Willamette, Colorado in Dead Rising, the PlayStation 3… didn’t exist. Four years later, the zombies are ready to shamble, moan, and hunger for brains again in Dead Rising 2 – coming to PS3 this August.

Didn’t play the first game? We’ve got you covered. Capcom’s Mike Schmitt and Wes Phillips walk us through the sequel’s new multiplayer modes, and give newcomers a look at the delicious combination of goofiness and gore that summarize the Dead Rising universe."

A good zombie game I can play, resident evil (although a big fan) doesn't satisfy my zombie cravings anymore.

Now all that is left to go multiplat is ME2, then I'm set.

I'm sure their working on Mass Effect 2 as we speak :-)

Though I do get that tonnes of gamers LOVE zombie gaming, I never understood the appeal of this game but none the less, those that have always wanted the game on the PS3 now have it.

The whole Zombie movement this gen has been something very baffling to me too lol. The best one's been L4D and in that setting it makes sense and is fun for a period of time but I've not yet seen a shooter/melee zombie game that really en capsules that whole zombie vibe where you're scared ****less.

RE4 did a great job with "zombies" but none outside of the RE series have made me interested in any manner. RE5 was kinda whatever but still decent enough with the zombie theme.

I know some gamer who won't even touch another CoD game with no Zombie mode in it. Crazy! lol

I like the diversity of weapons and the humor elements, but that video looked fairly lackluster and lacked a lot of the action one would expect in a zombie game. I'm hoping that's just a boring section of the game. Though, admittedly, the last part looked a bit more action-packed, but then they go and shut it off early.

Inside_out2866d ago

This is NOT the console game...I've seen a walk through, this is a arcade title....geez guy's, give the maker of RE4 some credit....LMFAO...

Solidus187-SCMilk2866d ago

It was really hard untill I found you could give the other survivors weapons and health items.

this game is looking really fun.

ThanatosDMC2865d ago

I usually end up killing them accidentally with the sledgehammer when im trying to save them from getting overwhelmed. All that trouble then BAM! Dead.

Roper3162866d ago

the only thing that will epic about this game will be the amount of locked content on the disc, so Scamcom can sell it to you on release day to make more money.

ThanatosDMC2865d ago (Edited 2865d ago )

I watched the video but does this mean that there wont be a horde of zombies on screen during co-op? It looked kinda empty compared to how the first one.

Also, why cant it be a Batman or Robin suit?! Yeah yeah... copyrighted materials...

He also mentioned that there's heretics or something along those lines? I hope it's those weird guys worshiping the zombies. They were fun.

72hr clock is back. Looks like we'll have multiple ending again. Cant wait for this game!

But i hope it's just their screen capturing but the game itself doesnt look as good as the trailers. Maybe they lower the graphics a bit during co-op? Also, if you notice there's zombie "jumping" in and out of the screen. Lag, maybe? They need dedicated servers.

HolyOrangeCows2865d ago

I had a lot of fun with the first game.

But we all know crapcom is going to find some way to make it worse than its predecessors (See Lost Planet 2, Resident Evil 5, etc). Plus an iffy Ps3 version, I'm sure.

Finally! Looking forward to this. The original was one of the 360's games I've always wanted to play on the PS3.

Hellsvacancy2866d ago

Defo buy 4-me aswel, i was gutted i didnt get 2 play the 1st game

Captain Tuttle2866d ago

That looks terrible. Hopefully they clean it up in time for release.

DavidMacDougall2866d ago

Looks boring, that helicopter trick didn't even work plus that bucket drill thing will be fun once!

ReBurn2865d ago

The game certainly doesn't look as smooth as the first one, but they still have a couple of months to smooth out the rough edges.

ElementX2866d ago

I played the first game when I owned a 360. It was so much fun I can't even begin to describe! Total mayhem, TONS of weapons and objects to fight off zombies... Too bad a lot of the people around here are fanboys. If they would only give 360 a chance, they might've been able to play the first one, it was a gem!

talltony2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

What I didn't like was the load times from just changing mall locations. And the ending where they just left us hanging when they were on top of the tank after fighting that boss guy. I wanted to see more and kinda wish they would continue that story with Dr2. But nontheless Dr2 looks alot of fun and is on my buy list..

ElementX2866d ago

Yes the load times were bad, so was the checkpoint save system, however the game was amazing regardless! Everybody is so anxious to play DR2, but the players of the first one have already experienced it!

edgeofblade2866d ago

I butt heads with people all the time in how incredible DR1 was. It got the details of a zombie crisis perfect, even if things like the save system were hamfisted.

And it was hard.

ReBurn2865d ago

The time limits in DR1 were absolutely insane. I don't know how anyone could accomplish all of the goals. For people who say it was just about killing a zombies, you can tell that those people didn't just didn't get what the game was about. Those zombies and the obstacles they created made achieving the true objectives so insanely difficult. It was such great fun.
