Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Launch Trailer Eats Your Face

View author's profile

With the release of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record a week away, Frank West is getting back in the game heading to Fortune City with his camera to take more horrific, brutal, erotic, funny and dramatic photographs to earn Prestige Points (PP).

With new combo weapons and a new area called the Uranus Zone, Frank will be getting back into the action following the Willamette mall incident and a subsequent fall into bankrupcy, depression and boozing. Jumping into the Terror is Reality ring, West will be doing what he does best all over again. Slaughtering thousands of zombies in a variety of creative ways.

Check out the new launch trailer for Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, then feast your eyes on our hands-on preview ahead of our upcoming review. Welcome back, Frank...

Will wait for the price to drop. A LOT.
The feeling that the game is only a v2.1 of DR2 is way too strong.

Really enjoyed DR2, but I'm not sure I can afford another £20 on a game which to an extent I already a DR3 on the other hand... XD

lol Capcom. Finally releasing a game you've hyped up instead of canceling it like you usually do? Too bad, piss off. Maybe I'll pick this used somewhere down the line just to make sure you assholes don't get any money, but probably not because I don't want to see your cunt logo on my television anymore.

@ 7 - I would like a definitive DR3 myself but I did like what they did with Case Zero and Case West.

I still need to finish a couple things on DR2 but my core Completion is done. I adored the first run through with Frank for what it was worth. If the second game, much like Mercenaries 2 weren't so glitchy at points, it would've been one lengthy high in replay value co-op game. We'll see what the future budget says about this...

Why do most of you keep complaining.I'm sure if they would have released this as dlc it would have cost more then a retail game.

@ 13 - What?? DLC or On Demand games are generally cheaper than their new retail counterparts. You're only paying for the product. Buying retail, you're paying for the product, brand and packaging. Which is why about most games On Demand are around $30-$40.

It goes like this, if you like the Dead Rising series, you'll probably get this, if you don't, shut up and don't get it.

I will be getting this because I love Dead Rising. The $40 price isn't that bad because it isn't JUST DR2 with Frank, it is SOMEWHAT DR2 with Frank in it.

@ 15 - Couldn't have said it better myself...well, I could. Everything you said PLUS Pie.

Everyone loves pie.

Truth though. I will most likely get this b/c I love sashaying around in the latest mall-popular getup and dismembering and disemboweling zombies at leisure.

While drinking smoothies. Keeno.

I'll get this eventually, since the first DR is why I bought a 360 impulse buy style back when it came out. Too many other games though between arcade and retail releases that'll hold me off on getting this day 1.

Gotta love how they already have the compatability pack for multiplayer on the marketplace already though :P

@ 17 - They did that for DR2 as well. The compatibility pack is nothing more than a temporary pass to allow you access to outfits and whatnot.

I love Dead Rising and I preordered this already. I wanted DR2 to have Frank West instead of chuck, so here I finally get what I want. Some Zombie slashing right in time for halloween.

@2 Rent it, it shouldn't take long to beat.

Is this an expansion or a whole new game? Lol?

I have never played one of these games but I have always wanted to. The only thing I noticed was how many photograph achievements there are. That seems like overkill on the camera but I could be wrong.

#16 I dont love pie unless it has chocolate in it, that is why cake is better. Cake>Pie

I'll be buying it first day. DR2 fixed all the problems with the first one and I can't wait to see what they add. Though cutting the versus MP achievements would have been awesome.

@5 I noticed that Katie looked rather doll-like too. I reckon she died and Chuck snapped because of it.
