It may take up a lot of space, but is it worth it?SparkWave | Nov. 7, 2014 | See all SparkWave's reviews »
After experiencing some game play of Dead Rising 3, I have noticed that it lacks any exemplary qualities like the other Dead Rising games had. It was all the same, with a few bits and pieces that showed quality. It takes up a lot of space, and a lot of people get bored or see it too hard to exceed missions that are in their path. Struggling takes up a large part of this which isn't very good for a game. It shows the relationship between how losing space affects game play, and how it will consequently probably be uninstalled, unless you are one of those people that always finish a game no matter what. Although much of this game is bad, there are some good moments as well. The "Bosses" show good technique and give the player a more exhilarating experience. It also has a co-op feature, which makes game play exciting as well. The crafting experience and finding items throughout the maps allows you to relax and enjoy gameplay more, because many of the found items makes it easier. In all, Dead Rising 3 is an okay game to be played, but overall isn't that well created.
it has its pros and its consbluedragon77 | Oct. 26, 2014 | See all bluedragon77's reviews »
This game is an enigma to me.. It is clearly not a very good port. The game lags horribly, and crashes quite often, but i still found my self having a blast playing it.. The many different weapons and clothes in the game are really fun to play around with, and the zombies have many different variations and break apart nicely :) the story is decent, nothing spectacular, the graphics are pretty good, very console looking obviously considering it's roots, the co-op can be fun, and trying to find all the hidden collectibles is both entertaining and hard. so to recap the game is really fun, get this if you love zombie games, or just wanna kill time and mow a thousand or more zombies at a time using a minigun lol. don't get this game if you expect a horror game as this game is very comical. aside from the frequent crashes and lag, it's a good game..

First day I had bought this game a buddy and I where stoked to play this as we wanted a good co-op game. Installed just fine launched fine and played alright in single player mode. Got past the tutorial so that co-op would be enabled and my buddy joined me and the game froze. I joined on him and the game froze..Tried everything we could think of and hours later still the same situation every time I would join him or him me my game would freeze. 24 hours later it turns out that him having the character  in his name was causing it to freeze me up. Once he removed we played for hours and had a good time doing so. The game to me was very short and did not give alot of hours worth of gameplay now one could go back and do it all over but that is not the same. I would give this 60/100 due to it running poorly at times and the issues on day one that caused us not to even be able to play it. I would buy this game for less than 20 as it still has some redeeming values while playing it in co-op mode.

The game itself is fun, killing zombies is great. It looks nice, but the game is not very well optimized. Unless you have a really powerful machine, you'll have to settle with playing at lower settings to have it be playable. This is the biggest downside to an otherwise great game. I'd recommend it.
Maybe the best in the series, not the best port.Snotnarok | Sept. 30, 2014 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
The Xbone port hits PC, it looks better, runs at higher res buuut it chuggs in odd spots. Hordes of zombies on screen? Runs fine, turn around? It decides to chug then of all times. If you watch Total Biscuits WTF is of the game, you can see where he plays with the settings more in-depth, showing that many settings seem to have absolutely no impact what-so-ever on framerate which is odd. The game is still being updated and Nvidia is still putting out better drivers so- it may get better.
With the port quality out of the way, this may be the best Dead Rising yet, it has modes for all kinds of players. Story mode where you have a LOT more time to do things and Nightmare mode where it operates much more like 1 where you are required to basically always be moving and ready to handle anything. They streamlined a lot of things, magazines no longer take up inventory, you have to pick which one is active. Levels are points you distribute to make the game play like you want; melee/guns/agility/health/inventory/etc. You can still craft weapons, maybe more than ever, but you can craft them wherever you want. You can combine anything, anywhere as long as you have the blueprint which are collectables all over the game map. You also feel less clunky when moving and going about and interesting enough: survivors can be far more helpful depending on who you find. Some won't even follow you, they'll thank you give you PP and run away. (Note: This is on Story mode. I haven't played Nightmare so that may be entirely different). The map is larger than Dead Rising 2 and more open thanks to vehicles and combos with them, allowing you to travel great distances easier. It almost feels GTA in scope but most stores are accessible with things inside to help you survive. I've played Dead Rising 1,2(off the record) and now 3 and I can say this is far easier to get into but also has the difficulty of previous if you want to dive into the Nightmare mode which is open at the start. It may also be the best given the options given. Just be sure you have a nice chunky video card because as I said, the game doesn't seem to run super well at times which may be fixed later but at the time of this review with a GeForce 560TiDS, framerate ranges wildly from mostly playable to choppy.
