I am having trouble convincing myself to buy this game, it seems like a copy paste of chucks game with frank in his place... thanks for the upload, but this is really hard to watch this was a bad game play video, but oh well...

what a painful play-through to watch...and listen to. Luckily the game looks fun and worth the cost to play through with a new character and new psychos.

Poor review by the way! It would be better if you gave the game to some people who actually know how to play?? ...Oh and actually know what they are talking about and don't giggle like 6 year old school girls at the word "Uranus!"

@Floymin I noticed that "Off the record." is for sale at only £24.99 as opposed to the normal £40 for a new title... I for one am looking forward to playing this, after playing DR2 and surprisingly liking it, when I expected it to suck big time! I just hope that it isn't a huge let down...?

i get that they are previewing this game, but considering its pretty much EXACTLY the first game, with a new character. they shouldn't be so bloody lost playing through it. they took to long looking around and discussing where to go and they are CLUELESS about any info about the game. didn't anyone give them a memo about it or something??? this should be informativie, gameplay is not really a big deal to see here considering its a remake....duh. I want to know what, if anything is added to this game. one new area is not enough for me to be interested.. this is a rip off. first is cool. but..this should be DLC. unless the disc is only twenty bucks max. nobody should buy this. this is such a bad idea. its just outright lazy

I dont know why people start dissing this game. New storyline, more combo weapons, photography skill, an additional area and FRANK WEST. Stop nitpicking people, its going to be amazing.

What happened to Capcom? First they did it with Street Fighter, then Marvel vs. Capcom, now this.

I know this is like an expansion pack but it doesn't look like an expansion, this is going to be a rip off. Same story, same gameplay.

-The playboy adds are gone -This all looks outlandishly familiar -I'll probably discover as much new in this game if I take another run on DR2 (Chuck Greene edition) Ultimatley, it looks like there's a better experience if you go after the DLC; since I own a PS3, I'd wait for a true sequel.

Yea, I agree that reviewers are supposed to be good at the games they review. When I played the original DR2, I was able to complete several errands AND get to the Yukatan Casino in 15 minutes by FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS.

For those that have not followed the development: "Off the Record" is a re-imagining of the DR2 story with Frank instead of Chuck. It has new dialog, new areas, new combo weapons, and Frank's signature photography skill. This game is for those who passed up DR2 because Frank wasn't in it. Think of this game being $40 because it has $20 of new material.

Now I'm not the best game player out there. But it makes me wonder how most game reviewers are really poor game player ..... I would of thought they would be experts in the field as it is their job to play games, oh well. But was looking to get this since it was half price ...... but with the same bosses and same characters to save like in DR2 whats the difference except for Frank and his camera. Seem like Capcom is feeding us the same old thing but with sprinkles on.

@luizferrarezzi: Great call re: Dan Aykroyd...I was wondering why he looked so familiar.

This is the exact same game as dr2 sme cut scenes, same characters, why would anyone buy this. Another way to try to get fans to buy a game that a capcom cleaned up a little but will probably want full price.

Yea, I kind of mess about around in the middle of this one. I've never played a game where I didn't really know where to find somthing new and interesting, only because I've played DR2 so many times. It's an odd package! Anybody interesting in pick it up?

This isn't DR3, this is merely a dlc for DR2.

I don't undestand. How could Frank do the exact same thing. Wasn't that lady already rescued by Chuck?

We dont need to see cutscenes from the first DR2. This guy sucks so bad at the game, no wonder he wants autoaim. Wish they would have shown some multiplayer or Uranus Zone or a new combo weapon. Might as well just play DR2 because theres nothing new to see here.

Wow the EXACT same cutscene from DR2 except this is with Frank West >_>

Sorry for the audio guys - persevere past the first minute or two and it improves!
