CFD!'s Halloweek continues with Rob Rich's look at this Xbox exclusive downloadable prequel:
"People liked Dead Rising a lot. It wasn’t without its flaws; such as the inconvenient save system, timer-based missions and pain-in-the-ass survivor escorts, but there was no denying the appeal of killing zombies en-mass in unconventional ways. With Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene is poised to pick up where Frank West left off.
"And that’s all well and good for the sequel, but what about this odd little demo/prequel/Xbox Live Arcade game thing? Everyone who cares knows that it sets up Chuck and his daughter Katey’s story for the follow-up game, allows you to play with a limited amount of MacGuyvered weapons from the new combo system and features lots of zombies. What everyone wants to know is just how “worth it” is the whole thing. Is it just a five dollar demo, or something more?"
