Frank is a photographer, but it is very difficult to stop and take pictures when a hoard of zombies is closing in. I found that I rarely took the time to take pictures, though they do add to the PP (Prestige Points). One cool thing Frank can do is create combo weapons. Items are scattered all over the place that can be used as weapons, and some can be combined to create an even more powerful weapon. The combo weapons kill more zombies, and give extra PP. While rescuing survivors and researching the outbreak conspiracy, West encounters dangerous looters and psychopaths. The looters roam around stealing what they can and spraying spray paint in your face. The psychopaths are kind of like bosses and they can be very difficult to kill.
Overall Deal Rising 2: Off the Record is a pretty fun game. Having not played the first Dead Rising or the first sequel, I found the game to very entertaining. Those who have played the first Dead Rising 2, Off the Record might seem a little redundant. The locations are basically the same, and the story has the same basic elements. However, if you are looking for a fun zombie killing game with a decent story, this fits the bill. I liked the story and found that the ideas of C.U.R.E. and the reality show added a little extra depth to the game.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB for Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, Blood and Gore, Use of Alcohol, Intense Violence, Language. This game can also be found on: PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
