Dead Rising 2 is looking to considerably up the walking dead count over its three-year-old predecessor; the five hundred or so zombies that appeared on-screen simultaneously in the first game will be replaced by thousands in the sequel.
The first one was one of my favorite single player experiences ever. I can't wait for this one.
Apparently two people disagree with that comment which must mean the first game wasn't one of your favourites. -__- People can be so stupid.
The original is one of those games that I regret not buying. Every couple of months I get an itch to mow down hundreds of zombies. I try to limit myself to buying 2 or 3 amazing games a year and this might have to be one of those purchases. I hope they can deliver.
Dead Rising 1 was one of the few games that made me wish I had a 360. I'm so glad that this is coming to the PS3 ^.^
When my fatty crapped out on me i did nothing but slaughter zombies with my battleaxe. Also, surviving through the garage without a car sure was fun... no cart charging. I'm hoping for multiplayer or at least co-op. Please let there be some stronger zombies. Like mini bosses cuz after i've slaughtered all the bosses all i had to fight were stupid zombies or the military.
I didn't like it until I figured out how to use the books properly to keep the chainsaws for virtually forever. Then it got good. The strict timers in teh game were a little too short and took away some of the fun but it did maintain a sense of urgency. Great game. The sequel has a lot to live up to. PS: I still haven't been able to shoot down the damn Helicopter and I want that achievement.
I loved the 1st and can't wait to pop this in my console. The game looks much better and with so many zombies Shaun of the Dead is now a reality on my TV. 360 and PS3 gamers are in for a treat later this year.
Will this game EVER arrive? It was supposed to be released like nearly 2 year ago now..
was ridiculously fun! it was one of the original titles on Xbox that i wish would get ported soon to ps3. nothing beats OTT crazy fun mowing down of zombies with anything you can get your hands on! and now that they are upping the zombie count ill definately be there to pick it up :P even though capcom loves to shaft us with DLC they still remain one of my favorite game companies literally giving my days of fun with their really cool games. Now please bring next gen versions of onimusha and viewtiful joe please :P
Can't say I enjoyed the first one, but I think that's because I came to the party so late (mid-2008) Will definitely check this one out. Can anyone tell me if it matters if I finished the first one before playing this?
It probably doesn't matter seeing as a good chunk of the consumers for this sequel wouldn't have played the first one, because of the exclusivity of the original.
Sounds good. I loved the first one, but it was spoiled by the insane time limits and only having one save slot.
I will kill every last zombie in this game.
One of my proudest 1000/1000 came from this game, and boy did you have to earn it, achievements like kill over 53,000 zombies, eat all food types in the mall, take 100 special PP photos, answer all calls from otis, get 50 survivors out of the mall in one playthrough ect. I dedicated a LOT of hours to this game and i thoroughly enjoyed every second, regarding the complaints about the save points........ i thought that the save points added to the tension, afterall, how challenging was it trying to make your way to the save room when you only had one square of energy left and an entire mall of zombies to sneak past before you made it to that all so precious save room? Not only that, but for a zombie game the story was actually very good too, plenty of cutscenes and different scenarios to see each playthrough. Apart from the sequel having more zombies on screen, more weapons, customised weapons ect its also going to have multiplayer :-) The best game this gen just got better for me.
I am happy that you're happy though.
it could be easily double or triple than that with no framerate slowdown haven't been for the weakness of the 360. count another gimped game experience courtesy of xbox.
IGN: Bayonetta Xbox- 9.5 --> Bayonetta PS3- 8.0 LooL anyway waiting Dead Rising 2 on my Xbox 360 with exclusive DLC.. : )
I am sorry but you're constantly making s*** up based of hasty conclusions and I'd love to know how you reason, I'd love to! So PM anytime, I'll be waiting.
ZOMBIES = win
idk having an ai that doesnt really do much im pretty sure you can up the count without to much processing issues
