Critic Reviews for Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition

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

The killing-lots-of-zombies genre is overcrowded, but Dead Rising 3 is one of the best, with a lovable dedication to fun, and some of the most inventive, hilarious weapons on PC.

Dead Rising 3 combines bland gameplay and colorful stereotypes into one unfortunate adventure.

With a bit more time in development, Dead Rising 3 for PC could have been the definitive version. Unfortunately, an above-average game is hamstrung by a port that runs poorly on stronger PC hardware. Crashes and framerate issues abound. If you really want to play Dead Rising 3, your best bet is to wait or pick up the Xbox One version.

With a more engaging story that didn't solely rely on zaniness and/or idiocy to sell itself, Dead Rising 3 could have been more worthy of recommendation. Instead, accept my lukewarm approval of it as a purchase decision.

Dead Rising 3 is a technologically sophisticated game with a very straightforward concept. Here are a bunch of toys for you to use to lay waste to the zombie horde. Go out, explore, and have at it. Although it often feels like the time limit (present in all Dead Rising games) conflicts with the idea of running around a big open world, it doesn't take away from the satisfaction of zombie bashing.

Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition offers an improved experience on PC, but it is held back by some of the same problems that existed in the original game. If your PC is powerful enough to run it at full speed then it is an enjoyable experience that is worth checking out.

Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition is simply a fun game. Its story lacks and it has its fair share of downfalls but it is all worth it due to its unforgiving and humorous gameplay. If you don't have an Xbox One, this package includes all of the DLC as well as a few new graphical bells and whistles. Dead Rising 3 is truly a game that is its best when it isn't trying, it is unapologetic and bloody, and one of the best zombie hack and slash games that has ever been released.
