    Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition is a must-have for any sandbox rampage lover.

    The same great game it is on Xbox One, but prettier. On the other side of that coin, it includes the same issues with the map design feeling maze-like and confusing, but no other game does huge hordes of zombies quite like this one.

    Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition is a beefy port of a great Xbox One game and its decent post-release content.

    Dead Rising 3's world is grey and bland, yes, but those aren't words that can be used to describe the frenetic zombie-culling action which forms the game's core.

    Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition doesn’t differ much from the Xbox One version released last year, but it hasn’t lost any of its fun factor since then. A higher frame-rate and slightly better graphics offer some advantages, but the real value is in playing Dead Rising 3 cooperatively.

    Even if you play Dead Rising 3 together, it still quickly becomes stale and boring. New gadgets and weapons differ mostly by animation, while zombies are just an annoying obstacle on your road to the next waypoint.

    Plot is more of a protracted errand through drab, gray streets that are a chore to navigate.

    For all the negativity I had heard about the port quality, I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out quite playable on my sub-minimum sysFor all the negativity I had heard about the port quality, I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out quite playable on my sub-minimum sys req computer - Intel core 2 duo 3ghz, 4gb ram, GTX660. I played from start to finish with only 1 crash (a driver crash, though I'm not using the suggested nvidia drivers). My one gripe is that the aiming and inventory will occasionally flicker off and on when held down, which can make aiming and weapon combining near impossible at times. As for the game, i found it very enjoyable having quite liked Dead Rising 2 (once I enabled a trainer to slow the timer, something I didn't feel necessary to do in DR3). The main character starts out a bit of a wimp, but he slowly grows into the role of the hero by the end of the game.. Expand

    + Plays very smoothly on my i7
    + graphics are simple but good
    + Gameplay is not very precise but it has a lot of variety
    + Clothes customization are fun to watch on the cut scenes
    +lots of weapons
    + story its good

    - Driving through the entire map can be tiring
    - Movement could be more precise

With the 30fps cap removed it sticks at 60fps for most of the time, only dipping when there are masses of zombies on the screen. If your rig is struggling, then keep the 30fps cap in place (which will half the drain on both your CPU and GPU) and reduce the render to below your native resolution.

    I've got it maxed out at 1440p and it still looks old. The release on XBox One must have looked very dated.

    With that out of the way.......I'm not really one for these kind of games; once I've had a laugh at the crazy weapons, and gruesome (second) deaths dealt out by said weapons, I'm overwhelmed by the repetitive grind of it all.

    It's fun, but only in short bursts.

    Gameplay is fun, fluent, agile, but has very, very bad driving mechanics.

    Story, is just "meh".

    Graphics are good and realize this: It was one of the first original games to come out to XBOne and in the Next-Gen era.

    Port? BAD, TERRIBLE LAG ISSUES, WEIRD 720P, 900P, 1080P OPTIONS, FPS KILLER V-SYNC, 30FPS CAP (Which is terrible for a 60hz screen owner, like me) INSANE GLITCHES, ETC, ETC, ETC, BLAH BLAH BLAH.

    Get it on XBOne(r).

    So, the game doesnt support more than 30 FPS, which is unacceptable for me, but since i'm a year older and my friends know that I LOVESo, the game doesnt support more than 30 FPS, which is unacceptable for me, but since i'm a year older and my friends know that I LOVE videogames I have Dead Rising 3 on Steam! YAAAAAY! Can't be that bad right?

    WRONG!! Game crashes every 10 minutes or so. I cant hear the voices of any character, my resolution isnt even supported (it's a normal 16:10 resolution) and the fps actually drop below 30 FPS whenever it feels like (I have WAY more specs than recommended). The game is blurry even with everithing maxed out and since I cant play it for more than 10 minutes without it crashing (fairly common problem as stated by dozens of post in the forums) I cant even tell anything about the story. Gameplay is ok, except for some clunky fighting mechanics (specially when you try to do a hard hit but end up stomping the floor because both are the same button) and HORRIBLE mouse acceleration that makes navigating (Pathetic FOV contributes too) and specially aiming authentic chores.

    So, another cash grab from capcom, another 0 in my list.
