Wonder if they're gonna use the Unreal Engine or their in-house stuff?

Dark Void seemed to indicate that Capcom could do all right with UE3.

It's the Framework engine, the one that powers all other major Capcom releases. Reason Dark Void uses Unreal is because its not developed by Capcom.

Dead Rising was easily one of my top 10 favorite games in the last decade. But the first time playing it I wanted to throw the damn Xbox out of the window cause of the convicts on the jeep. Most people seem to have stopped playing the game at this part.

But if you stop being a wuss, level up and beat them you've got such a great game waiting for you.

My friend and I played the game for a while and we quit when we got to there too.

The "boss" guy throwing the grenades was really retarded too. Easily one of the poorest boss battles I've seen in a recent game. I can't hit squat with an analog controller and it was even worse in this game. The only reason we got by it was because the game glitched and he got stuck on something long enough for us to shoot him to death.

Seemed like it was a decent game it just had some incredibly stupid levels. I would probably grab it on PC since being able to aim would make the game much less irritating. They never released it on PC though, so we'll see how the second one turns out.

I beat them at the very start, my main issue was that every time you go back to the courtyard they freaking respawn, which is annoying and makes zero sense.

My complaint with the original was the time limit and the stupid save system... other then that the ame was a fun time waster.

Never played the first one, but will definitely give this one a shot. Hopefully theres a demo to try out.

Not a happy camper they kept the lame game time limit and save system.

If you're looking for a long haul experience in which you restart the game multiple times over, Dead Rising 2 will be your thing. If, however, you're looking for a more simple 'once through and you're done', the action provided here will not bode well with you.


It doesn't help that, once again, saving the game can be a total nightmare. You need to hunt down the toilets again, but there are barely any around, and I found myself longing for a simple 'save wherever you want' method. Why this idiotic system is still being used, I really have no idea.

I'm with you.
Before I bought my first Xbox 360 I made a list of highly rated games, with this one on it. I was so glad, that I didn't buy it, but downloaded the demo first. I was so disappointed...
