So, America's got this infatuation with zombies recently. Well, maybe that interest has been around a while, but zombies are everywhere now, at least in gaming and television. Call of Duty, Red Dead Redemption, Left 4 Dead and a dozen other games...

Following the somewhat unexpected success of the Xbox 360 exclusive Dead Rising, Capcom has decided to bring the sequel of the slow zombie action title to all platforms. With Dead Rising 2, players can expect to see some familiar gameplay that made...

Dead Rising 2 revolves around Chuck Greene, an ex-motocross superstar that has been accused of setting zombies free on Fortune City. Chuck not only needs to clear his name before rescue arrives but also have to get Zombrex for his daughter every 24...

Dead Rising 2 is a lot of fun to play. The new weapon system is a brilliant addition as it’s always exciting to see what you’ve created and how the zombies will react. And while I thought the constant hunt for Zombrex would prove to be...

Like Nintendo with the Metroid Prime series, Capcom turned to a US studio to develop the next chapter in one of their flagship, this-gen franchises. Although Retro arguably knocked their assignment out of the park, Blue Castle Games, responsible only...

Again, Dead Rising 2 has issues. It’s not the smoothest game and it can feel like the last one, however that doesn’t mean a thing when the game’s this much fun. Using a car battery and a Street Fighter mask to electrocute the undead...

I guess it's safe to assume that if a terrible virus did spread throughout the real world, infecting people and turning them into zombies, we'd have a fairly good idea of how to deal with them by now, thanks to the plethora of movies and games...

Chuck Greene er en desperat far, som forsøger at overleve zombieudbruddet sammen med sin lille datter. Fortune City er blevet ramt, og Chuck bliver ufrivilligt viklet ind i en større sammensværgelse, hvilket gør, at han skal...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 80

Mal abgesehen von der fummeligen Steuerung und dem einsteigerunfreundlichen Speichersystem gibt es kaum etwas am zweiten Teil von Dead Rising zu bekritteln. Vor allem im Koop entfaltet das Zombie-Gemetzel sein volles Unterhaltungs-Potenzial. Und...

Ah, Dead Rising. Capcomin muutaman vuoden takainen zombi-mätkyttely vaikutti ennakkoon niin huikealta peliltä. Mies, ostoskeskus ja tuhansia zombeja. Mikä voisi mennä pieleen? No, esimerkiksi se, että pelissä oli tehty...

Come fai a replicare il successo di un gioco in cui si ammazzano centinaia di zombie utilizzando qualsiasi oggetto come arma? Semplice: fai un gioco in cui si ammazzano migliaia di zombie (gli sviluppatori una volta hanno sparato che ce ne stanno fino a...

Zombier i hobetal har indtaget Fortune City, og det er op til dig at stoppe dem. Rasmus spiller Dead Rising 2, og ser om det har løst problemerne fra forgængeren...På papiret var det første Dead Rising genialt. Et sandkassespil fyldt...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Fräscht grepp på en rutten genre Dead Rising tog ett humoristiskt grepp på zombiegenren och anspelade glatt på John Romeros gamla kultförklarade filmer. När det nu är det dags för uppföljaren har det...

Dead Rising får en putsad uppföljare och Elfving har njutit av zombieslakt av hög rang. Ett rejält järnrör kan slå hela världen (och 924 323 zombies) med...
