Is Dead Rising: Case Zero worth 400 Points?
Just tried a searching but it kept saying there was a fatal error, so i hope this question hasn't already been asked but;

Is a demo really worth 400 points? Even if it is a stand alone game!

well for 200 achieve points for 400 points its really good point wise to buy, if you plan on getting dr2 in 3 weeks its a real good chance to get a feel for things, if not this might be the thing that hooks you into buying the game.

as a standalone title i rather liked it, its everything i hoped for and more, altho i only played it through twice for the achievements you could have hrs or game play finding clothes testing the weps mixing drinks and general zombie brutal murders.

its also a way of getting a decent headstart on dr2 level wise and giving you a advantage earlier levels.

for 400 points you really can't go wrong with this title, a full play through is something like couple of hrs, most achieves can be done in 1 play through if you try, if you really are concerned there is a trial version but if you follow the story upto the ambulance itll end the demo, you could explore around with weps without doing the story and see if its your cup of tea.

It's not really a demo, it's a nice little bonus mission. It's kinda short (an hour or two), but it's fun while it lasts. To be fair, this type of thing should have been a pre-order bonus or an unlock, but to be fair, I spent five bucks on worse things.

If you consider it as DLC, you'll enjoy it. It's a nice taste of the game while not being a demo. You get an early look at some characters and even some development with them. It's a nice little budget title.

To be fair, after I beat it, I thought it should have been a free promotional product, but still enjoyed it in the end.

Comparing to other arcade titles and DLC: Yes
Fun Factor: Yes

Tom Pladgett 09-04-2010 01:47 PM

I've definitely paid more than 400 points for worse DLC than this. And I've even had to buy the game beforehand.

In all seriousness though, I liked getting a chance to try out the gameplay, and didn't mind paying a bit, since it's all content that won't be in the final game.

dacunhasilva 09-04-2010 02:26 PM

Definitely worth the purchase!

Barad 09-04-2010 03:07 PM

Oh its definitely worth it!

In Flames 09-04-2010 03:12 PM

it beats a lot of 1200msp games

crazy W01f 816 09-04-2010 03:26 PM

I was skeptical at first too, but I figured I only have 600 points left and nothing better to buy. In terms if completion it took me 5 hours, so $1 for an 1 hour gameplay is pretty good.

achti 09-04-2010 04:50 PM

really worth the points, i totally enjoyed it and played through it 3 times.

xMidget_Furyx 09-04-2010 04:59 PM

i've played it through 3 times now and i really enjoyed it worth 400 msp to me yes if you plan on buying dead rising 2, yes it's worth it.

I absolutely HATED the first Dead Rising. Bought this to give it a shot, & it made me want to buy Dead Rising 2, really hyped for it now. 400 points = bargain, short but very, very sweet.

Mikeyspinkick 09-04-2010 06:56 PM

I didn't have to convince to buy this for myself. I was like "Oh shit, 400MS Points? STEAL!!!"

Its nice to get a good bargain for M$ every once in a while...

YourHero 09-04-2010 07:18 PM

It took me 2 full and 2 half playthroughs to get all 200 points. A full playthoguh is almost 3 hours. The achievements are a breeze.

This game was paced and flowed WAY better than the first DR. I dont know if that will be how the full game is.

Even minus the story bits, there is a lot to do in this game.

Well worth 400MS points.

Are drugs worth trying once? Yes, is the answer you're looking for my friend.

Mellizano 09-04-2010 08:41 PM

To answer the question quite simply...Yes

Archvile78 09-04-2010 08:43 PM

Definitely yes.

nelsnelson 09-05-2010 01:40 AM

This is easy to recommend for only $5. I probably got a good 7-8 hours of fun out of it, playing leisurely, and it has me totally psyched for the full game.

The Jedi Pirate 09-05-2010 02:29 AM

I wasn't that excited for the game originally. This is one my boyfriend's been really excited for but I only had a mild interest. Case Zero has made me really interested in DR2. I can't wait until it's out later this month.

jackofblades 09-05-2010 02:37 AM

yes easily worth the 400

gameplayer 09-05-2010 02:45 AM

It's a great deal for 400 points. I kind of like that it's a complete episode but not as big a a full retail game. I'm still looking forward to the full release at the end of the month.

Numbthumb 09-05-2010 03:11 AM

It's impossible not to recommend this game. For achievements, a fun time, and a lengthy adventure with tons to do.

The best way to look at it is that this is a self contained mini-game, that lasts a few hours, has immense replay value as well, and for $5 it's the perfect way to decide if you want Dead Rising 2.

This isn't a paid demo either, there's a good amount of material here and it's a ton of fun. Furthermore, you can keep your level and goodies if you do decide to get Dead Rising 2, using the save file to start you off a higher level. Which, if anyone remembers the first game, it was ultra important to level up - so much so people would complete half the game and restart at that level.

Totally worth it in every regard for $5.

Stereochrome 09-05-2010 03:24 AM

This arcade game is so worth the $5 it costs. In fact, looking at how much other arcade games are worth, that are worse, I wonder if it's actually worth more than it's priced for! It is insanely fun to play, it directly benefits your Dead Rising 2 game once you get it, and the replay value is ridiculous. I mean, who doesn't have fun beating up zombies with a nailbat and getting achievements for beating up enough zombies?

This mini game actually made me decide to pre-order Dead Rising 2! While it is an extended demo to some extent, it is also a self-contained game that you'll have fun playing.

Best 400MSP ive ever spent :)

I couldn't agree more!! :) AND your stuff transfers to the full retail game of Dead Rising 2 when it comes out later this month. Even better!

MediumMelanin 09-05-2010 01:40 PM

Oh, yeah! Sure, it might've been 1 hour long, but it was sure as hell was fun and totally worth it for a measly 400MSP! :) Best 400MSP I've ever spent!

ni9ht_5ta1k3r 09-05-2010 02:00 PM

and the achievements are easy!

JBong6 09-05-2010 03:16 PM

Completely WORTH the 400ms points and the cheevos are fun and easy as cake.

samsaBEAR 09-05-2010 04:03 PM

Like someone else said, it should've really been included in the main game. It's fun yeah, and I'm stoked to be playing Dead Rising again (loved the first), but it just seems unnecessary

JoshPicklyk 09-05-2010 04:05 PM

It's loads of fun and it's a great game!
