Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is a Shooting game available on the PS3. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record expands on the Fortune City outbreak of Dead Rising 2, and brings back Frank West for some zombie slaying action. More than the light DLC expansions of Case Zero and Case West this will be a full disc based game.
Dead Rising 2ís tongue-in-cheek approach to zombie murder has always been refreshing. Off the Record intends to have another roll of the dice with the established formula but replacing hero Chuck Greene with photojournalist Frank West of the original Dead Rising in what Capcom describe as a fan version.
