A surprisingly fun zombie game but boss battles are extremely hard unless you play with a friend in co-op.

Well, we were given the honor to have the game on the PC and also at a cheaper price.
GFWL WARNING! : GFWL is required to play this game. However, I think it's a benefit for Dead Rising 2 because when you think you are playing a single player game, someone can actually join your game if you allow them to. No in-game text chat means you can use the GFWL's microphone chat in order to communicate with the other player.
Besides the single player /co-op, there is Terror Is Reality. You and 3 other contestants compete in a series of events which will add up your points in the end to see who wins. If you play ranked matches, you can earn money for your single player character. Ah, money. If you want to play with the better toys, you should prepare to scavenge for some money.
There are many many ways to kill a zombie and it is indeed fun. What really is the appeal of the game is the fact that almost every object around you can be used as a weapon. What's better is that as you progress throughout the game, you come across newer things to use. Oh, did I mention that you can change your clothes too? And not just men clothes either! The game has great comical value even if the main story is serious.
You and a friend can hope on a little pink tricycle and mindlessly knock down zombies while racing to the other side. There's also a leveling system at which some levels you unlock new moves and increase your health.
But the game is not as easy as it seems. Boss fights are EXTREMELY hard! I can't stress this enough because you must be quick and daring sometimes in order to defeat them.
Also, Capcom's move on to charge this game at $40 instead of $60, which is the trend for most games, is definitely a great economical benefit for PC gamers.
Worth a buy and if you have a friend, then this game is for the both of you to have mindless fun.
