This game started an amazing zombie series
This is an awesome third person open world zombie game. You can run around the mall and pick up almost anything in the mall to use as a weapon. The newer versions are better but it is still fun to see where the series started.
If you like Dawn of the Dead, you'll like this one
The fact that this game takes place at a mall & has thousands of zombies roaming around, is where the similarities end. This game is fun because you can go into different stores, change into clothes, make different drinks, use all kinds of objects as weapons, take out a few psychos, & rescue people in the process. Of course, you have a limited amount of time to do this in. Of course, it's frustrating that the zombies that you seem to clear out of an area keep respawning. Even more frustrating are the prisoner psychos that respawn. Overall though, it's worth owning if you like survival horror games.
Not what you would expect
Most of the reviews on this page say the same thing, "gets old,plot is boring, saving sucks,blah,blah,blah!". That could be because those people are playing the game strictly as the game says to. For instance, in the first mall scene the game tells you to " get through the zombie herd and get up the stairs!" but it is possible to just plow through ALL the zombies with the stash of weapons in the corner. The saving sysem DOES leave some to be desired because you have to go the certain places in the mall to save and if you die there is know "continue" option. But although that can get annoying you certainly shouldn't use that as your reason to not to buy the game. The combat is very unique, It is funny because you can KILL zombies with almost anything, stch as a potted cactus, or an HDTV, or a set of dinner plates,ect..., It is also enjoyable because although there is an everasting supply of weapons, you can't be a noob and just find something powerfull and abuse it, weapons do disapear from your inventory after about 50 hits. The zombies are good but not to scary to give you nightmares or anything. Over all I would certainly buy this game because not only is it for a great price, but it also can last you a long time.
The Dead Rage
I bought Dead Rising with my Xbox 360 the other week and I can't keep off of it. First, I was worried since the game is almost 4 years old (I believe), but then I checked out some videos then saw how awesome it STILL is. The gameplay is challenging and it's really easy to get sidetracked from the main plot but there are so many things you can do besides killing hordes of zombies but why in the world wouldn't you want to?! There's a major selection of "weapons" including Pistols, Shotguns, Guitars, and even a Mega Buster, the possibilities are endless with this game. There is no way this game will be forgotten since it's so unique and after all this was the first game CAPCOM made for the Xbox 360 and they did a hell of a good job. The graphics aren't all that but being able to rip the intestines out of a zombie while being shot at by psychotic convicts with a machine gun weighs out the cons. Any who... it's an awesome game and I just hope I see people playing it again.Overall Score:8.9
Probablly the Best Zombie Game I've Played
Dead Rising Is Possibly the best zombie game i have played in my entire life time! i played it for a while and got old of it and gave it away. but i got a demo on my xbox, i've played the demo so much that i want the game back! If You like Gore, Killing stuff and just messing around then this is the game for you! some bosses are hard to beat but most of them are not. some bosses also have a funny side to them. This Game Includes Action, Psychopaths, Humor And Many other great things, If You have a hi-def tv the graphics are just as good! even without a hi-def TV the graphics are fairly impressive! The Only Problem I Had With This Game Was Having Time To Defeat The Side Bosses And Also Beat The Game. Beating Side Bosses Is Fun But, Not Manditory, So All i Did Was kill the side bosses and i couldnt beat the regular bosses. but other than that it was a great game. i recommend it to anyone with an Horror/ Action Adventure Side to them id give it a 10/10! good job capcom cant wait for number two!
I just picked up a copy of Dead Rising and here's what I think: It's a great game with many challenges, including psychopaths and bosses. You pretty much have 72 hours (3 Days) to collect survivors, kill psychopaths, and find out the truth behind the whole story of how this tragedy happened. There is a HUGE variety of weapons including Toy Swords, Handguns, Sledgehammers, Lawnmowers, Cars, Umbrellas, and many more. The sound is easy to hear, but whenever your in a horde of zombies, the stupid janitor, Otis, calls you nonstop on your walkie-talkie. Also, when there is a conversation, it has subtitles. You can't read it since the words are way too small, unless it's during a cutscene, then they actually talk. The controls are actually easy, though. You can also cheat by finding weapons such as Battle Axes, Katanas, Uzis, and even a Mega Man Suit w/ Blaster! I'm still working on finishing the game, and I'm only on Cletus, the over-protective manager of a gun store. Wish me luck!
Well when i first got this game it was a bit scary(creepy) but i still enjoined it. Althought you wont be able to beat the game when you first get it your going to need to level up before you actually do any mission after the second battle with carltio.I can see how this game can be dissapointing but if you get passed the controls its a really good game some problems of the game are the survivor A.I is really stupid,theres only 1 save slot so if u mess up at first, then your going to have to start over or continue just to level up,the little text at the bottom can only be visble is you have a HDTV. The good things about the game are that the sound is amzing with the different weapons you kill zombies with. The graphics are pretty good for a game that came out in 2006. Achivements are ok except for the ones that take alot of time are only worth 20g. Other than that the game is really good if your a zombie lover get this game if u just want to have a quick adventure rent it for like 2 weeks or more.
this i a game that pracically anyone can find joy in. here we have dead rising. one of the best and only good zombie games to hit stores. this is a great game to unleash some anger in killing zombies and to experiment with your murderous techniques. you gotta give kudos to capcom for actually creating an interesting and believable zombie origin. we have too many movies and games where zombies are introduced with unknown creations. the challenge is a bit steep to start because of the lack of experience. and it may need a few replays to get good, but once you do, it becomes an incredibly good game. the graphics are moderately good, but the animations are quite bad. the set length of the game is always the same due to the story layout. the character frank west who is a photo journalist, has 3 days to uncover the mystery of the zombie outbreak. if you love killing zombies with...well, pretty much anything that can be found in a mall , than this is the right game for you!
Dead Rising might be one of the best games for the Xbox 360. You start off as a curious reporter named Frank West, who goes to Williamette, which is infested by zombies. There you have to save survivors, level up, go after psychopaths, and find out what is causing the zombie outbreak. This game is very appealing because you can practically use evrything as a weapon. Tee up using a golf club, hit the zombies with a sickle, or chop them up with a chainsaw. The replay value for this game is incredible. It is fun to play over and over because you can save new people each time you play. Also, it is very hard to beat the game, so you play the game over and over again until you finally solve what is behind the mysterious zombie epidemic. I think that anyone that wants a little violence will absolutely love this game. I can't find a game right now that is that much better than Dead Rising. Dead Rising is one of the best zombie games ever made. You will love this game!!!!!
Deadrising is a decent game, going around a big shopping mall killing zombies with anything and everything, classic idea, though it just doesn't deliver everything you may expect it to. The story is good, it can be hard and frustrating at times. The zombies can get annoying after a while, and the weapons get old. More weapons would have been nice, there is a limited amount in each store. The graphics are fine, probably amazing when it was first released. The realism of the game kinda goes both ways, same for Deadrising 2, some bosses can put up quite a number of bullets, player can probably be sniped four times (depends on health level) and then eat something and be fine. If your playing the game for a realistic experience, just check it over first. A lot of people may have got this game for the free roam part, (such as myself) but to tell you the truth, I don't enjoy free roaming in this. It just ends up boring and trying to find a save point so you can stop playing. If you want a good free roam zombie game, get Deadrising 2 Off the record, it actually has a sandbox mode so you can do whatever you want. Overall this game gets a 6 in my book, I probably wouldn't recommend it, but watch gameplay or get demo before purchasing.
