well it was what made the first game special.

the number of zombies is the key factor to create the despair atmosphere for the title.

Without sheer number, zombie isn't that scary! Just think about it, they are slow enough we can easy outmaneuver them with enough space!! Despite the occasional crazy human boss (what, four or five?), wave after wave of zombies are really the fun of the game.

Just admit this failure and move along with it...DR2 will still kick ass

So do you also consider RE5 a failure for not having 100 zombies on screen at once? What about all the other RE games? Are they complete garbage now just so you can hate on Wii game?

This game will suck. Nothing they say will change that.

Hurry up and get this out the door so you can stop being stupid about DR2 and announce it for PS3/360.

It was announced earlier today or yesterday.

No. Dead Rising is about a Photo Journalist getting trapped in a mall taking pictures (which isn't in the game) for a magazine and surviving a whole town of undead (which can't be done on the Wii) for three days uncovering why things are the way they are.

The "picking up and using everything as a weapon" is the everyman aspect of being trapped in a mall overwhelmed by hundreds of zombies and not being the stereotypical hero who carries a myriad of guns. It's not the point of the game but a means to survive it.
