If misery factories like The Walking Dead have taught us anything, it's that people are crappy and that they're the real threats in a zombie-infested world. That may be, but some of us would rather experience the end of days like The Last Man on Earth, using the apocalypse as an excuse to ride a tricycle around while wearing a tuxedo jacket and snow pants. Dead Rising has straddled the line between horror and humor since its inception, and that hasn't changed with the fourth entry - but it's not shambling in the footsteps of what's come before. Even though we're back in Willamette with Frank West, Capcom Vancouver has infused the series with fresh ideas and some of the best action that it's had in a decade.
Take Frank West back to where the series' outbreak all started - and kill a few thousand zombies along the way
In spite of a few visual hiccups (and underneath all the gore), it's a nice-looking game
Frank's new voice actor nails his performance, but the standout work is from whoever created the demented new holiday songs
Combat is simple and satisfying, and the streamlined systems continue to benefit the player
This is the Dead Rising game that fans of freeform exploration and mayhem wanted from the original. Clock-watchers need not apply
