If all you desire is the endless slaying of zombies and a chance to be creative with said slaying, this sequel is right up your alley. Dead Rising drops next week and you can turn virtually anything into a weapon. You can even combine everyday items into lethal undead killers, which is sadistically appealing. There may not be much of a story but that's okay; the focus is squarely on the hectic, survival-oriented gameplay. What will you do to fight your way through the flesh-eating hordes?
