Dead Rising 2: Off the Record - the third game in the line of games started by the game Dead Rising and continued by Dead Rising 2.

The action of all three games (and there is the fourth one - Dead Rising 3) takes place within the same line of events.

First photo shoot with zombies

In the first game photojournalist Frank West, arrives in the town of Willamet, Colorado, to investigate why this town was closed by the authorities. Frank enters the city by helicopter, the helicopter pilot is told to return to Frank in 72 hours. Frank quickly finds himself in a shopping center, where a crowd of people are trying to hide from the zombies - as it turns out, it was zombies that caused the closure of the city.

Over the next 72 hours (this time is one of the strict conditions of the game), Frank must survive, save a few people and understand where the zombies came from. Along the way, he fights with zombies, seeks solutions, makes weapons and takes photographs - he is still a photojournalist. For successful shots, he gets more experience, which is appreciated in the game.

Wheelchair with machine guns

The second game "forgets" about Frank, it features a motorcyclist Chuck Green, who arrives in Willamet after all has settled down. There is a drug against turning into a zombie now, it is expensive, but effective. However, the new invasion of the zombie is still happening, Chuck drives around the town on a wheelchair with a pair of rifles, shooting hordes of zombies and simultaneously showing a touching concern for his daughter, who is somewhere nearby and needs a cure for zombification.

Zombies give a second chance

The third game "resurrects" Frank, who after success in the first game managed to fall to the bottom of life. In search of a new chance to succeed, Frank returns to Willameth, who seems to have been cleared of zombies twice, but Frank is very lucky - zombies capture the city for the third time. This time there are more enemies, among them many new ones. There are also more types of weapons - those that you need to do yourself from improvised means. Frank will visit places in the city that he did not suspect. Especially impressive will be a visit to the amusement park - "Uranus Zone".

Excellent game, it is worth each of the cents that Cobra, the graphics are wonderful, very realistic mechanics and a wide world to explore, Highly recommended for lovers of the zombie lso (Necro lovers) ASPECTS OF ENHANCEMENT:-The combination of the typical music of the Shopping mall and the shordas of zombies who want to devour you. -Hilarious and useless Weapons that....-Combierten in powerful and lethal machines when you combine them.

In This game, we play as Frank West. A former photographer, who lived the events in Willamette. This story is a "What if" being that it is not canonical. In question is to find out why zombie outbreak is unleashed in Fortune City. In This version there are a few different things how:-Different final Boss-Leon Bell is replaced by Chuck Greene, why he loses Kate. -Añadé a character who was Adam's brother-etc I give a "Fantastic/I've covered wars you Know"

No sooner did I start the game than I took a lot of fun. A real defouloir! It must be said that I had just abandoned a very soft and boring zombie game. With dead rising 2, I finally found the good old, hungry, Goody zombie, dragging the shank-of the classic, certainly, but in mass!! What a joy to smash all those volunteers who rush towards you to get hit, lacerate, hack, fracture, Stomper, hole, swing, high-kicker, cut, shoot, Impaler, burn, cut, smash, crush, decapitate, freeze, electrocuter, explode... According to the desires and the weapons that you fall at hand! Come on... don't feel guilty, they're already dead! If like me you liked the first opus, do not hesitate: the novelties of it further increase the interest of the concept (sandbox mode, weapons combos). And always this race against the watch that makes all the charm of the game...

One of the main innovations that incorporates Dead Rising 2 and that is of imperative necessity is the manufacture of custom weapons. Throughout our trip we find hundreds of weapons and objects of different nature that we can use to get rid of the undead the most redeemable of the game are without a doubt the action and fighting. The City is very large and hides a multitude of secrets and hideouts. The best Thing is to play the Co-op online, otherwise I do not recommend at all, the game meets but I have not finished convincing. The best of Dead Rising 2: Off the Record ː yellowbeat ː Cooperative online ː yellowbeat ː Variety of secondary missions and extras The worst of Dead Rising 2: Off the Record ː yellowbeat ː Repetitive and boring ː yellowbeat ː In The long run the story brings nothing ː yellowbeat ː Playing it alone is a sin personal Score of the game: 5.5 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Computer used to play it: i7-4790 3.6 Ghz MSI B85-G43 Gaming MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4GB G.
