    Dead Rising Mobile is both a technical marvel, as it lets you roam a mall freely on your iOS device. But at the same time it suffers from a crude combat system, graphical shortcomings and glitches and a general unpolished feel.

    The main failing for Dead Rising Mobile is that it just isn't interesting enough.

    Sets a low standard for adapting titles to handheld devices and while the gimmick feature of killing zombies with various weapons has remained, it only acts as a reminder of the real gameplay that's missing from this release.

    Dead Rising Mobile isn't the fastest, smartest, or strongest zombie game on the App Store. In other words, it'd be one of the first ones eaten alive.

    Dead Rising Mobile comes as a boring and repetitive third person action game, with clunky controls and mediocre graphics. It has definitely nothing to do with the original game.

    I'm a big zombie and Dead Rising fan, and I can't recommend this game to anyone. It's ugly and not fun to play.

    You might somehow eke a crumb of satisfaction out of discovering new weapons, but the chances are it'll just make you want to boot up the real thing on a home console. The sooner this stench of mobile putrefaction is buried out of sight, the happier we'll all be.

    It's OK. The game is big, but big does not always mean better. The game is drastically worse than it's console counterparts. Not because it'sIt's OK. The game is big, but big does not always mean better. The game is drastically worse than it's console counterparts. Not because it's on iOS, but because the graphics feel unpolished compared to what other games look like. The gameplay is frustrating because the controls feel as though they have been thrown in at the last minute. I would recommend you just save your money and pass on this one. Collapse
