With the release of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record a week away, Frank West is getting back in the game heading to Fortune City with his camera to take more horrific, brutal, erotic, funny and dramatic photographs to earn Prestige Points (PP).

With new combo weapons and a new area called the Uranus Zone, Frank will be getting back into the action following the Willamette mall incident and a subsequent fall into bankrupcy, depression and boozing. Jumping into the Terror is Reality ring, West will be doing what he does best all over again. Slaughtering thousands of zombies in a variety of creative ways.

Check out the new launch trailer for Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, then feast your eyes on our hands-on preview ahead of our upcoming review. Welcome back, Frank...

And I`m the first to give you a thumbs down, #1.

Back on-topic, eh, there might be some good content in this game, but whether it`s worth the full pricetag? I think I`ll 100% the original DR2 first before considering this.

And I'm the first to comment on how great it is to see the people who write first have their comments written down (Most likely someone will mark me down for ruining what was an awesome joke for Golem)

It's annoying because Off the record looks really good yet at the same time I already have DR2 so why would I want to play the same game again?

It is not the exact same. They added new areas and psychopaths. Also altered the way the story plays abit. As for how much I don't know. It seems like a rental at least.

@ 6, I saw an ad in Game Informer that the game will be $40. I did enjoy DR2 to an extent, so I'll likely pick this up eventually, but I'm in no rush.

@5 Look at my video in the DR2: OTR forum, the first 15 minutes are exactly the same as DR2.

The very few new stuff is not enough to make this game feel different.
