Should I play this or Off the Record

As the title states, I have never any dead rising game before, because I always heard the save system is crappy and one can often mess up entire playthroughs.

Now I think I wanna give it a shot but I'm confused, Help me Guys

  • Does the story matter?
  • Which one's more friendly in terms of pick and play?
  • Note that achievements don't matter in terms of you rating diffiuclty.
  • + Anything else you wanna mention

Well it's the same game but with a different character. Off the Record has you play as Frank, who was apart of the first Dead Rising game.

If you need a co-op buddy, let me know. I have the game and haven't played it yet.

I was about to buy OTR when it was on sale but it seems way too similar to the original for me.

Both are fun and different enough that I enjoyed playing through both.

However, OTF is by far worse then Dead Rising 2. Dead Rising 2 is the best of the series.

I wouldn't say its by far worse than Dead Rising 2, i like OTR more than the Dr2, maybe its just me but i like Frank more and a big plus for OTR is that you don't have to run all time to Katey to give her zombrex!

I thought the sandbox mode got kinda boring after a while. The time aspect made me appreciate the time I had to kill zombies more, I think.

I agree 100%. Deadrising 2 is the best in the series overall. OTR was just too similar to DR2 for me to like the game as much. I kinda wished I passed it up,on the other hand I needed it cause I need to 1000 DR2 and OTR to have all deadrising games 100%ed.
