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

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.

Number two because taping together an axe and a sledgehammer is a lot better gameplay than trying to take upskirt zombie pictures.

so what is the difference in 2 and 2OtR? think OtR is newer so probly cooler,

and i think i am gonna track down DR1 on the Wii and get 2 OtR for X360 and not worry about the rest.

unless someone convinces me that 1 is much much better on the 360.
or that 2 is much better than 2 OtR

or, that they all are worth a purchase, lol so many options

No one should even have to convince you that Dead Rising 1 is better on the 360. The wii version is garbage compared to the 360 version.

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)

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.

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.
