The First 15 Minutes of Dead Rising 2

One of my favorite games this generation is Dead Rising, the zombie-outbreak in a mall title by Capcom. Dead Rising is famous amongst gamers for its obtuse gameplay style and outdated save system, but I loved the freedom of running around in a dress drinking milkshakes and dying my hair. Oh, and killing zombies too, I guess. Despite the fact that we’re reaching the saturation point with the walking dead, I’m still looking forward to Dead Rising 2, and to celebrate its upcoming release, some kind soul has decided to post the first fifteen minutes of the zombie-slaying sequel up on YouTube for all of us to enjoy. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the opening of Dead Rising 2:

It looks a lot like the original, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. Dead Rising, for all its faults, has a lot of notions associated with it, and it looks like the new developers, Blue Castle Games, nailed the feeling of the first. One thing that might irk me is the amount of load screens, but what are you going to do? So, any thoughts on Dead Rising 2? Are you reserving your judgment, or is this fifteen minute glimpse enough for you to go off of? The game is out next Tuesday in North America and this Friday in Europe.

  1. Ew ew ew ew. That was really hard to watch. I feel like this is a PS2 game or something. Damn Mafia II, What have you done to my vision!

  2. Really Julez? Hell, I wish my PS2 games looked like that. In my opinion the game looks great. I like a lot of the features they’ve added (although there are still some nitpicks, like loading screens and a time limit). Hopefully the PC version has a real save system, but with Capcom’s record of PC porting, it’ll probably be the same (why only 3 slots!?).

    My only wish for this game game is to have a true infinite mode, all the time in the world to do whatever you want, and then bring a buddy in. Bonus if they do it in a “Keys to the City (Crackdown)” kind of way, where they’ll let you spawn some stuff or increase your stats at will.
