Case West is a solid game that's packaged at just the right size. It melds camp with semi-serious story telling the same interesting way that the other games did, and the buddy-action-flick relationship between heavy-hitters Frank West and Chuck Greene turns out to be pretty damn awesome.
+Same fun gameplay
+Co-op with two heavy hitters
+Great sense of humor
-Very easy to plow through in one sitting
-Doesn't seem to link with DR2 too much
Just under the wire Capcom/Blue Castle has released their second book-end to their second instalment of the Dead Rising franchise. Dead Rising 2: Case West is the third instalment for Dead Rising 2, and features both previous games protagonists: DR2’s Chuck Greene, and DR1’s Frank West. Along with new weapons, a new story, a new location, and the same unique game-play that built the franchise Case West incorporates a bit of the ol’ photography game-play that was dropped after the first game.
