    I have to say that Capcom did a good job making a horror action game this fun! Who would not kill a zombie by using a guitar or a manikin’s arm? I recommend this game to Fans of Resident Evil! Now, let’s... Read Full Review

    Words cannot describe my level of disappointment.

    Before I got my 360 (indeed before I've bought any console) I spent months pouring through the magazines to get an idea of what I'd be letting myself in for, and this game was among the reasons I wanted a 360... being a ... Read Full Review

    Instant fun and action with lots of creepy stuff going on!

    This was a great and addictive game that nearly resembles the Dawn of the Dead movie in its fully entirety! Running around in the mall avoiding zombies was a lot of fun with a lot of enjoyable missions. Some of the mi... Read Full Review

    revolutionary gameplay. VERY ADDICTING!!! (360 version only)

    This is a review on the 360 game Blazing Angels 2... Unfortunately, our hearts could not take writing about something so LAME. So we wrote it on an older game, Dead Rising. Cue the zombies, and anoying fat janitors. ... Read Full Review

    Near perfect game with a few exceptions..

    What? A review of a launch title this long after it's out. Well yes, some games I just hadn't got around to yet. And since this game has already been reviewed to death, I'll keep this short. The depth of many new ga... Read Full Review

    Dead Rising is a perfect game for everyone with urge for killing :D

    I can describe this game using free words: Fun, Fun, Fun. There's only one thing I would change if i had such chance - its graphics which are far from being ideal and stunning. Nevertheless the game still rocks. Music ... Read Full Review
