the story is preety good,it has some awesome moments and it has more endings to it,depending on how you play the game
so for the story
the graphics are pretty good,the lighting effects are great,the character models dont look really good,the art design is good,the details and the animations are okay,and the explosions are ok,the graphics dont seem amazing,they are good but not great,the lights in fortune city are good,the day-night shift is great,and the zombies do look scary..
so for the graphics
now if you didnt liked the gameplay for the first game,this game will do little,the gameplay for me is solid.the boss battles are still difficult,there is still the annoying timer in the game,and the zombies will chew you more this time and it takes away one square of your life,thats not fun at all,now the gameplay has pretty good weapons,the combo weapons are hilarious and some are awesome,the gameplay is fun,you can dress chuck how you want and you can see his clothes you took from the gameplay even in the cutscenes,almost every object in this game is a weapon like the first game and killing zombies is great,the weapons in this game are more powerful than the last game and you also need to get food to replenish the health,you can also buy stuff from the pawn shop,theres still the save system in the toilets and after you finish a case,which the map is smaller this time around and theres more save points now..the gameplay is fun and solid,it still has problems but the game has variety and awesome weapons,and also when you escort survivors is fixed and its also broken,this time around they fight and defend themselves but if you enter some other area,you might leave them behind and you need to go back to get them and move on,not to mention the fact that the load times are long.
so for the gameplay
the fun factor is great,you will have alot of fun playing this game but you will also have stupid moments and it might piss you off,the boss battles are difficult and for me they are stupid..the game is fun but its not the most addicting game you will ever play
so for the fun factor 8.0
FINAL SCORE:DEAD RISING 2 GETS A..
