The inclusion of the sandbox mode makes Dead Rising 2: Off the Record more than just a retread with slightly modified cutscenes. By itself, it’s an incentive for Dead Rising 2 players to pick it up. If you haven’t gotten around to playing the sequel yet, this is definitely the version to get.

Off the Record es un buen juego pero está condicionada su adquisición si tenemos muy fresca la segunda parte en nuestra memoria o si nos quedamos con ganas de más al terminarlo. Que quede claro que es lo mismo que ya vimos en su día pero algo más depurado, con una nueva historia que incluye nuevos personajes y psicópatas y el carisma de Frank West que aporta la necesidad de registrar con la cámara los momentos más llamativos. El modo "Libre" podría dar un poco más de sí, ya que se convierte en un gran complemento para el cooperativo y para subir niveles, pero no puede sustituir a la historia principal. Al menos el juego sale a precio reducido, cosa que siempre se agradece, pero hay que reconocer que le lastra como un ancla la misma ambientación por mucha nueva historia que hayan metido.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is worth a punt if you've yet to become acquainted with Fortune City, and although the addition of checkpoints might seem beyond the pale to some, it considerably reduces the frustration factor. At a budget price, Off the Record represents surprisingly decent value, and who out there doesn't like cross-dressing and clubbing zombies to death? Exactly.

Whether or not Off the Record is a good idea is a pretty difficult question to answer. If you enjoyed Dead Rising 2, then Off the Record is much of the same with a few new weapons, missions, a new environment, and the return of the camera system from the first game. The time limit-free sandbox mode is a welcome addition to the series and one I hope they carry into the inevitable Dead Rising 3. However, if the wacky story, forgettable cast of characters, and repetitive gameplay are starting to wear out their welcome, than Off the Record might not be worth it for you. It's tough shaking the feeling that this game offers little to make it worthwhile to anyone who played the second game, but if you're itching for some more gory zombie action, then Off the Record shouldn't disappoint.

Para bien o para mal, no hay mucho más que decir de Dead Rising 2: Off The Record que no se haya dicho ya en los análisis anteriores de otros capítulos de la franquicia. Básicamente es el mismo juego que Dead Rising 2, pero aprovechando para hacer una "versión del director", añadiendo nuevas armas, zonas, un nuevo modo de juego y puliendo técnicamente algunos aspectos. Y además, se nos presenta una nueva historia protagonizada por el héroe original, Frank West, que está mejor narrada y adaptada en muchos aspectos que la que vivimos con Chuck hace un año. De hecho, es de esos detalles que te hacen preguntarte cuál debería ser la segunda entrega oficial. Dead Rising 2: Off The Record tiene novedades muy interesantes y mantiene todo el encanto jugable de episodios anteriores, por lo que, dado que sale a precio reducido, los amantes de la franquicia (y sobre todo los del primer Dead Rising) tienen alicientes de sobra para volver a adentrarse en Fortune City.

Valutare un prodotto come Dead Rising 2: Off the Record non è affatto semplice. Agli occhi di chi ancora non si era cimentato con il secondo episodio della serie, infatti, la nuova avventura con protagonista un Frank West "vissuto" (ma sempre pronto a menar le mani) apparirà probabilmente anche migliore della versione con Chuck Greene, vuoi per il fatto di ritrovare lo stesso personaggio del gioco originale, vuoi per la presenza di qualche elemento in più e del Sandbox Mode, vuoi per il prezzo di vendita più basso. Quelli che invece hanno portato a termine Dead Rising 2, pur apprezzandolo, difficilmente troveranno dei validi motivi per acquistare questa reinterpretazione: la storia è la stessa, i boss anche e le modalità aggiuntive non rappresentano questa aggiunta spettacolare in cui magari si sperava. Il voto numerico va dunque inteso come una via di mezzo fra le due posizioni.

It’s hard to dismiss Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, mainly because it’s just as salvageable – and in some respects, fun – as the first game, and at a fraction of the price. But there’s so much more that could’ve been done here. More areas for Frank to conquer. More co-op support for the main story mode. More story twists. More something along those lines. Fans should enjoy it, but, for us, it just covers too much of the same territory we plowed through before. Give us Dead Rising 3 already…and not Dead Rising 2.5 or 2.7.

In the last year, Capcom has kind of gone Dead Rising crazy, releasing no less than four different titles in the series. Off the Record could have easily been the entry that jumped the shark, the one that fans realized they just didn't care anymore - but it's not. Sure, it's not completely original, but thanks to a few tweaks and new modes, this is the definitive Dead Rising experience and a great starting point for those who have yet to experience it.

Dead Rising is a unique experience that no other franchise quite replicates. But part of the appeal lies in how different it is from other games. There have now been four Dead Rising games released in little more than a year, and this may be a case of too much of a good thing. Off the Record just doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from previous games in the series, so even the most ardent fans should be resistant to dive in again. And those immune to the lure of mass zombie slaying in the past still don't have a worthwhile reason to take the plunge because the Sandbox mode is so tiresome. This is still a well-designed game with a humor and style all its own, but there's not much here that you can't find elsewhere. Off the Record is a good game, but ultimately a redundant one.

Les esprits chagrins qualifieront sans doute Off the Record de nouvelle skin pour Dead Rising 2, et ils n'auront pas foncièrement tort : en reprenant l'environnement, l'intrigue, de nombreuses missions, et les mécaniques de jeu de sa précédente production, Capcom devait s'attendre à ce genre de critiques. Il faut cependant reconnaître que le retour de Frank West et de son appareil photo apporte un petit plus à l'aventure, et que la présence d'une nouvelle zone et du mode Bac à Sable est bien agréable. Reste qu'au final il est bien difficile de recommander l'achat du jeu aux personnes ayant retourné Dead Rising 2 dans tous les sens, car même à 40€ cet Off the Record reste trop proche de son prédécesseur, souffrant d'ailleurs des mêmes lacunes techniques. Si toutefois vous n'avez jamais mis la main sur le jeu original, vous pouvez foncer sans état d'âme sur ce spin-off plus complet et tout aussi jouissif.

Vendu à petit prix, Dead Rising 2 Off the Record a de l'intérêt pour les joueurs qui ont apprécié le second épisode et qui en veulent davantage. Il s'agit ici plus d'un add on stand alone qu'un jeu complet au vu des nouveautés, mais peu importe puisque cela est justifié par le prix d'achat. Dans le cas où vous vous attendiez à un réel nouvel épisode, il y a de fortes chances que vous soyiez déçus.

Capcom probeert eruit te halen wat er (nog) inzit. Off the Record is weliswaar een slim koopje wanneer je de Dead Rising reeks nog niet kent, maar de zombieveteranen weten wel beter.

In a game about killing zombies, most people also want to hear the gore as much as they see it. OTR isn’t bad in this department. There are plenty of squirts, gurgles and slices to be had. It’s all a little understated though. In stark contrast to Left 4 Dead’s zombie population, Dead Rising’s zombies are more of the passive variety. They just sort of mill around and moan and don’t really intrude on your space unless you intrude on theirs. Count me as one of those people that wants to hear more gore.

Difficile consigliare Dead Rising 2: Off the Record a chi ha già avuto modo di provare Dead Rising 2; certo, torna il reporter d'assalto Frank West (nettamente più carismatico rispetto a Chuck Greene) con la sua macchina fotografica, ma per missioni, ambientazioni, modalità in multiplayer e trama le analogie tra i due sequel del primo Dead Rising sono davvero troppe per giustificarne l'acquisto a prezzo pieno. Il gioco diverte, ma può rappresentare una scelta accettabile solo per chi si è fermato al primo capitolo di questa serie o a chi, in generale, ama i survival horror con tante subquests. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record andava pensato, più che come gioco a sè, come contenuto scaricabile da potersi acquistare ad un prezzo più contenuto. Nel complesso gradevole, ma inutile per chi ha già portato a termine Dead Rising 2.

Off The Record is the way Dead Rising 2 should have been to begin with. But the lack of improvements to the aging gameplay, it is clear that this game is a quick repressing that didn't get the love it truly deserved.

Subtle changes, improved performance, and a bargain price make Off the Record a good way for first-timers to experience the Fortune City storyline. If you've played Dead Rising 2, however, you'll notice it's not just the denizens of Fortune City who are beginning to get a little stale.

Sincèrement, on ne voit pas, on ne comprend pas pourquoi ce que propose ce Off the Record n’est pas proposé (aussi) en DLC. Il ne s’agit certainement pas d’un problème de place, vu que le jeu reste identique, aux répliques de Franck et aux cinématiques près. Pour des anciens joueurs de Dead Rising 2 cela fait un peu cher l’expérience Franck West -d’où la note-, pour les autres, mieux vaut préférer cet Off the Record qui vous mets dans la peau d’un personnage haut en couleur, dans un environnement légèrement plus grand et doté d’un mode bac à sable particulièrement amusant. On pourrait juste regretter dans ce cas que Off the Record ne propose pas en sus l’intrigue de Franck West. Peut-être dans une future édition de Dead Rising 2, qui sait ?

Off the Record strikes me as a strange product. There are a lot of reasons to fondly remember Frank West, and it's fun to see him back in action here, even if he's put on a few. But the way this game depicts Frank going through nearly the same story you've seen before sort of cheapens the existence of the original Dead Rising 2. Video games are such a blatantly sequel-driven medium that I'm genuinely impressed any time a franchise makes a move as bold as replacing its protagonist, and moreover, Chuck Greene was a likable guy who did a respectable job with the whole reluctant-hero thing. Off the Record almost feels like it's giving up and saying, "OK, fine, here's that original guy you were so attached to." What this game means for a possible third Dead Rising remains to be seen, but at present, your interest in Off the Record should be directly dictated by how much Dead Rising 2 you've already played, and how much more you're still eager to play now.

Vous aurez compris que si Dead Rising 2 Off The Record ne s'adresse pas nécessairement aux fans du premier opus dans le sens où il n'apporte quasiment rien de neuf, il reste cependant un bon investissement vendu à «bas prix» pour tous les autres joueurs n'ayant pas encore franchi le pas. On y retrouve avec plaisir l'antihéros qu'est Franck West et si on a beaucoup de mal à adhérer à la politique de recyclage de Capcom (d'autant qu'on retrouve tous les problèmes de l'oeuvre originale), il est indéniable que retourner à Fortune City nous fait encore son petit effet. Bref, à vous de voir dans quel camp vous vous situez et si l'achat de ce «nouveau» volet s'avère suffisamment intéressant pour vous.

Le héros change, les cinématiques aussi, mais le scénario comme les missions sont quasiment toutes reprises du précédent, et hormis quelques ajouts de façade (nouvelles associations d'objet, mode bac-à-sable), le titre de Capcom Vancouver n'a guère évolué. On retrouve donc Dead Rising 2 tel qu'on l'avait laissé, avec une recette toujours aussi fun et efficace quand il s'agit de liquider du zombie par centaines, mais aussi les nombreuses lacunes techniques d'un jeu qui commence à dater. Pas très subtil, un brin opportuniste mais souvent drôle, surtout à deux, Off the Record séduira sans doute ceux qui n'ont jamais approché un épisode de la série. Les autres, et surtout ceux qui ont déjà fait Dead Rising 2, peuvent tranquillement passer leur chemin, en regrettant qu'un tel contenu n'ait pas été proposé en téléchargement.

S'il n'y avait pas eu Dead Rising 2, Off The Record aurait largement mérité ses 4 étoiles mais les ressemblances avec le volet précédent sont trop nombreuses pour ne pas se demander si Capcom n'a voulu encore une fois exploiter le filon au maximum. Certes, le jeu est moins cher (40€ sur Xbox 360 et PS3, 30€ sur PC) que les autres volets mais cela n'est pas suffisant pour en justifier l'achat si vous êtes fan. D'autant que le charisme de Frank West ne lui permet pas de prétendre être une star...
