Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is one of those cases of good things coming in unexpected packages. On the surface, it looks like a cash grab from a publisher taking advantage of a series’ fanbase. After all, it arrives only a year after the release of the original Dead Rising 2, and appears to essentially be the same game with a new hero. Looks can be deceiving, though. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record may be the best game in the series.
