Dead Rising 1 is a great game but can be incredibly frustrating due to survivor AI, And other then a few narrative details and Combo cards DR2 and Dr2 Off The Record are mostly similar but definately better then Dead Rising 1 --- Adam West was clearly the strongest Batman. Only he could punch villains so hard that words describing the impact materialise out of thin air
I liked DR2 most. DR1's lack of polish made it a nuisance to play sometimes. OTR had more features, but I felt Chuck's story lent DR2 a bit of weight. --- "'Grab the guns!' 'What about the troll?' 'Leave the troll.'"--ATHF
lol, about the response i was expecting on the 360 board, but lol i have heard some people say that the pacing and save system on the wii version far outshine the original that was apparently flawed (heard it said, idk if its true) --- THE POWER IS YOURS!
so what is the difference in 2 and 2OtR? think OtR is newer so probly cooler,
2 and OTR are basically the same game with different protagonists-- in OtR, the story is just retold with Frank West, the hero from DR1. OTR has a sandbox mode and an amusement park area. --- "'Grab the guns!' 'What about the troll?' 'Leave the troll.'"--ATHF
In terms of story, you want to get play DR1 and then DR2.
DR2 OTR is a "what-if" version of DR but it also has improvements such as a new area, new combo weapons and a Sandbox Mode WITHOUT a time-limit(which can also be played in Co-Op)
So, in terms of Gameplay it goes DR2 OTR>DR2>DR1 All of them are great however(DR1 is what made me get a 360), hopefully we'll get news on DR3 soon. --- FOX "made a huge mistake" cancelling the greatest comedy of all time; Arrested Development.
