Dead Rising 3 Reviews Summary

Summary: Dead Rising 3 is certainly a strong entry to Capcom's goofy zombie-slaying franchise, but its sheer size and technical issues do leave much to be desired

The spine of the game is still mashing your way through zombie hordes with elaborate weaponry, and fortunately this remains enjoyable from beginning to end, but having stripped back some of the humour and made the game less colourful and more gritty, it's a shame that the developers weren't able to infuse it with something else to top up its character. It's not as though Capcom Vancouver didn't understand people's love of the originals: when you're not smashing through zombies, you collect golden statues of Frank West, while the local museum has exhibitions dedicated to West and Chuck Greene, his successor in Dead Rising 2.

With zombies, more is better. Dead Rising 3 delivers the undead and great tools to kill them with by the truckload.

The best Dead Rising so far and purveyor of some of the most entertainingly absurd weapons in all gaming – just don't expect any depth or longevity.

Dead Rising 3 has made its brand of zombie-slaying as much fun as possible, but it needs to fix a lot more than that before it becomes the king of the undead.
