Love love love Dead Rising and Case Zero has been such a tease but I love it! Can't wait for Dead Rising 2!

Sounds like I have to pick it up soon.

Is simply fantastic.

My two standout combo card weapons are the boomstick and the electric rake.

Beer hat is also useful though in case you have no space for health in your inventory collection.

For a measly 400 MS points this for me has been the deal of the year so far.

And we have still to sample the joy of multiplayer from the full retail version yet.

I think Dead Rising 2 will score very high indeed.

Well done Blue Castle........ you pulled it off.

Paddle with the chainsaw is by far the best in Case Zero. Nothing like rafting in the streets, while slicing zombies in half.

Ronster3163030d ago

Pretty much all the combo cards were awesome.

Even the spraypaint/traffic cone combo.

Yup, "rafting in the streets" was pretty damn cool too.

Dead Rising 2 will be awesome.

Just because they call it a "prequel" doesn't mean I'm gonna pay for a demo.

Unlike GT5: Prologue, Case Zero is actually fun to play.

I've been messing around with it for probably 10+ hours now. It's honestly got enough substance to stand on its own as an XBLA title.

For players new to Dead Rising, it might help them gauge whether or not they do want to pay for the full version, but there's more to it than a typical demo. In fact, I think there's even the option to download a demo of Case Zero.

Besides, who doesn't love zombie slaying?

Unique location, unique story and leveling that carries over to the game for a price that is lower than standard add on DLC. Yea, its a rip off and a demo. By the way, im selling a bridge...
