The best way to describe Dead Rising 2 is that it's Dead Rising, except with all the nasty bits carved off like the fat off a T-bone steak. It's succulent, juicy, and waiting for you to take a massive bite from. Thanks to improved combat and AI, it plays much better, and the new additions make it truly fantastic. Despite the issues some may have with the game due to the more deliberate gameplay, Dead Rising 2 is a must buy. It's a fantastic - and more importantly, fun - game that you can pour hours and hours into.
