Very well-written guide and very well laid out. Easy to find the information you're looking for. Able to save all survivors in one playthrough!

This Strategy guide is OK, although I've seen better ones in the past. The way they regrouped the information for each sector of Fortune City is cumbersome and actually makes it hard to quickly find the desired information in it. Also, I found several errors in the book as well. The map is, on the other end, well designed and info on Magazines, weapons and Items is very helpful. You should only consider buying this book if you need help with some of the hard XBOX 360 Achievements for this game.

Index since the guide doesn't have one. Excellent guide, but no index Sept. 28 2010
By travb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow, what an incredible guide. I gave the Dead rising 1 guide a really bad review. This guide is EXCELLENT comparison. Hats off to Stepehn Stratton.

The appendix is worth every penny. Stratton lists the location of every item in every location. He lists strength of every weapon, and the durability. He lists every mixed juice drink combination. He lists the time that every mission and every case starts. The pull out poster is incredible. This is something the first guide by Mr. Off didn't have. (The first guide didn't even have a very detail index)

This guide's psycho strategies are rather poor though. For example, "Meet the Contestants" mission strategy suggestions are laughable. Where to get the steak above the casino for Snowflake is not easy to understand. Reading the walkthrough section you get a sense that Stratton enjoyed and put his heart into compiling tables more than writing a walkthrough. I wish Stratton listed the join and rescue bonuses for each survivor. DR1's guide had this.

Note: Prima sells an online version on its site, but the program which tries to stop pirating is so oppressive and takes up so much memory, it is not worth downloading.

My one gripe, and the reason I am giving it 4 starts only, is there is no INDEX! When is Prima going to add an index to these guides?

Here is the table of contents I created, which is sortable, which may help:

A definite buy! Sept. 30 2010
By luckylogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the better guides out there and puts some other ones to shame (read Mass Effect 2). Everything is covered and organized very well. I finished the game on my 1st playthrough saving 40 survivors and killing all psychos and completing all the case files. There is no way I could have done that without this guide. If you have not played dead rising 1, you should absolutely get this guide or you will be lost and frustrated with this excellent game. If you have played (and loved) dead rising 1, then you probably don't care about having to do multiple playthroughs to figure everything out without a guide. But this guide is still very convenient to have - combo card locations, item locations, making $, boss strategies (who can be very frustrating), etc. - I highly recommend it.

I love the game guides, especially when there is so much to do such as in Dead Rising 2. This guide not only shows you all the thing you have to do for the achievements but also all the things in the game that you are never told about and wouldnt know if you were not running into that area in a short window of time. I would buy this book all over again!

To get 100%trophies in this game everything must be found. It wld have been nice to have checklist for each trophy to make sure I got everything. Great and very detailed strategy guide nonetheless. Everything I expected I got.
