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 and a set of knives and a pair of boxing gloves to make Wolverine claws are all great times. Watching Chuck get covered in blood as he slays thousands of zombies, changing outfits so that one minute you're in a toddler clothes with a LEGO head and the next you're in a sundress, and listening to completely whacked out boss stories that's what I remember about Dead Rising 2.

Dead Rising 2 is a game that’s all about fun. The narrative is not particularly strong or engaging but then, it doesn’t need to be. This game wears its heart on its sleeve in terms of what it’s all about and is entirely unapologetic in the pursuit of base humour and over the top violence. If you can live with the over-keen loading screens and the infuriating lack of sense from the survivors you attempt to rescue then you should enjoy it for many hours.

If you were feeling cruel, you might assert that the same advice applies to Capcom with its handling of this franchise - but in all fairness, this wouldn't quite be accurate. Dead Rising 2 isn't a failure; on the contrary, it's a fun and highly rewarding game that is held back by a handful of unfortunate design choices. It's a worthy sequel in many ways, but despite all the innovative weapon combinations, Dead Rising 2 suggests that Capcom has yet to find its perfect blend.
