Welcome back to the world of Dead Rising in this enjoyable epilogue to the retail version of Dead Rising 2. This game is an arcade game that costs 800 Microsoft Points and does not require the Dead Rising 2 game to play. With it comes several new weapons, seven new combo cards, a new location to explore and most importantly the return of Frank West. He's covered wars you know.
Play the single player first to get all the achievements except Double the Fun. Then if you can join a co-op game who at the end, you can get Double the Fun without having to do every case in co-op.
If you start with your single player playthrough first it is possible to get all of the achievements in one go. Just manage your time wisely. I would suggest taking care of Petty Vandal, Amateur Photography, Professional Photography, Phenotrans Nuisance, and Phenotrans Bubble Burster first. Make sure you are doing the case files as you do this.
At the finish of Case One, start working on Savior as the survivors are time-based. You can also work on Handy Man and Zombie Hunter during Case 2. Zombie Hunter isn't as bad as it seems and Handy Man is pretty quick since the maintenance rooms have most of what you need. At the end of Case 2 the Hazard units will appear and you can quickly get Phenotrans Sabotage. During all of this you will be working toward Ultimate Power! Finally, once you beat the game you will get Fantastic.
After that just beat the game on co-op for Double the Fun and mop up any achievements you might have missed like Ultimate Power!
Case West is a very fun game, especially with a friend and in my opinion it is well worth the 800 Microsoft Points. It has a lot more stuffed into it then Case Zero did. The game is not hard by any means and is made even easier if you're a veteran of the Dead Rising series.
