    I'm looking forward to this, as long as they make the controls a hell of a lot better, especially the ranged ones. And if anyone thinks the controls were good, check out the reviews of the original, just about every one made a comment about how bad they were.

    meh, Left4Dead still beats it. THe novelty of the original wore off very quickly for me.
    Though 6k zombies would be a spectacle if nothing else

    Dead Rising = George Romero movie (Night of the Livng Dead)
    L4D = Danny Boyle movie (28 Days)

    I prefer the traditional zombie over the super zombie.

    Co-op would be awesome for this!! I don't think fighting another player would be as fun, but definitely making teams against zombie armies would be great!

    Totally agreed! There does seem to be a continuing trend of Zombie films towards the "Berserk" style rabid ones away from the original lurching ones...

    Still, RE: Game news, yay PS3 version!

    Zombie games are the best. I can't wait for dead rising 2, the first game is what prompted me to buy the 360. Currently L4D is hardly out of my machine - although I hardly get to turn the darn thing on!
    Multiplayer would be a nice addition, I wonder how it will work. As much as I liked the first game though I did feel it was missing cricket bats and shovels - I hope this is rectified.

    I'm looking forward to this, but I'd prefer it if they release the original for PC, so I can play through that before this one.

    I'm hoping it won't be like Fable IIs co-op though, it would be nice if the people could split up around the area, pretty much a co-op if you feel like it. Sort of like the free roam MP in GTA IV but with more missionanny stuff thrown in for if you feel like it.

    They should build it like Fallout 3 me thinks.

    More Role Playing aspects, set in Vegas, guns that actually work, gore like Fallout 3, damage/repair similar to fallout 3, etc. Should be less arcade like and more realistic. :idea:

    i do not really see the point in making a zombie game realistic...
    on the other hand, i don't really like zombies so i may be biassed.

    It's pretty damn good that it's multiplatform this time round. Can't wait!

    Awww, turns out that it was a slip of the tongue, or so is being claimed.

    We may not see multiplayer in DR2 :(
