Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package checks out as a complete release of the DR4, offering a plethora of content. Sadly, the game itself is based on a simplified gameplay unable to satisfy anyone.

Dead Rising 4 is a great game, and this expanded edition only makes it all the more greater. The addition of Capcom Heroes and Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf are just icing on the cake when it comes to this zombie splat fest. Some audio and graphics issues do hurt the game near the end of it all, but overall Frank does have a great Big Package.

Dead Rising 4 calmed the series' manic instability by dropping its exacting timer and relaxing into its madcap open world. A year later, its contentious effect on Dead Rising's identity is pacified by the enormous size of Frank's Big Package. It's not an assembly of distractions, but rather an indulgence of Dead Rising's (and Capcom's) eccentric history — and its giddying intensity is an opportune support structure.

Dead Rising 4 is a good game, but a poor Dead Rising game. Fans will likely bemoan many of the changes, but underneath that, there's a very good, very meaty game, albeit one that's far more generic than previous entries in the series.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package is a big, catchy, and bloody game which shows both the pros and the cons of the original title and it mix them with some brilliant additional content. If you like the series and you didn't play the PC or Xbox One version, you should grab it.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package does what a proper re-release should, packaging the base game together with all DLC and a smidgen of exciting new content.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package is made for people who love the idea of killing large zombie hordes in an outrageous fashion. The main game may not be as challenging as previous entries, but it remains engaging, and it would've been a fine purchase for PS4 owners. The presence of both old and new DLC makes the game absolutely packed, and while mini-golf isn't as strong as either Frank Rising or Capcom Heroes, its inclusion is still welcome.

When it comes to Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package, the same question comes up over and over again: Who is this for? Here's a title that not only fails to win over fans of Dead Rising, but it also fails to win over fans of videogames. Slaying hundreds of thousands of zombies is not compelling entertainment, especially when the combat mechanics are so unsatisfying. The entire adventure just feels tired and cynical, sapping players of the necessary energy to carry on with their day. This critic racked up well over 25 hours of play and didn't laugh, not even once. What else needs to be said? Maybe this game is for people who no longer wish to experience joy.

Frank's Big Package updates Dead Rising 4 to the point where its naysayers may be forced to give it another chance. Capcom Heroes' implementation of character costumes with newfound powers makes the main campaign all the more rambunctious.

With Dead Rising 4, you may not feel either fear, happiness, or excitement. It’s just another very good 3rd person action adventure game that’ll keep you busy with tons of zombie-killing fun and different types of jokes. Be warned though, playing it consecutively for too long may spoil the fun. Keep it slow and steady.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package attempts to tackle some of the issues faced by the original release, but by and large, it is ultimately the same experience that is still enjoyable, but doesn't come closer to the height of the series.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package brings a lot of content in a single package, filled with fun ways to kill zombies and new ways to play. However, some changes may not satisfy everyone and the main story is not attractive enough to stand by itself.
