The idea of Dead Rising 3 is have an exclusive launch title for the Xbox One in an existing series. As such the whole game seems a bit forced, not a disappointment but forced.
The scale of the game has greatly improved due to the new console. Where as previous games were plagued by loading screens between areas, this one is almost fully open city. Driving on the freeways plowing through hundreds of zombies at a time is very fun. Its fun walking through the city just finding an umbrella and using it as a weapon. Combing weapons has returned in this title as well. Combing a katana and a scythe to make a truly unbelievable super scythe, or a parasol and a dragons head to make a weird kinda dragon suit that I have not truly played with yet.
Also one of the new things is, using the Kinect to attract zombies towards you. You can shout “Over Here” and nearby zombies that were not alerted to you before, now begin moving towards you.
Overall this is a very fun game to play. While it could be better, I am satisfied with it.
Very well done, a huge improvement from the last title, however does not show of the power of new technology as well as Ghosts or Battlefield 4.
The voices from characters talking to each other or the sound of a chainsaw running are all well done.
I really enjoy playing the game in short bursts running around killing zombies for a bit. Fighting the bosses is a good challenge.
- Zombie slaying fun
- One of the better launch titles, as far as single player goes
- Graphically not as great as other launch titles
- Basically the same game as others, not horrible but change is nice at times
