    While not all of the DLC is a home run, the tweaks to the main game are all a net positive. The new Capcom Heroes mode is also a blast, and basically turns Dead Rising into a crossover musou title. Frank’s Big Package may look completely ridiculous, but it’ll leave you pleased in all of the right ways.

    Still a fun sandbox that gets even bigger with new modes and possibilities while also fixes some of the mistakes made on the original DR 4... Unfortunately there's still a lot of bugs and mistakes that remain untouched one year later.

    Filled to the brim with quality content, Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package is a blood-soaked holiday adventure that may not please purists, but will delight those looking for a good time.

    It's certainly the best version of the game to buy, and Capcom Heores is fun, but their are some technical issues, and it does make you wonder just how many more games Capcom can get from a fading franchise.

    One of the best games in the series, but one held back by technical issues and traditional repetition. Get past that, and you'll find hours of zombie slayin' fun. [Feb 2018, p.96]

    Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package still comes with all the flaws and warts it had during its original release, but if you can look past that, and deal with some laggy multiplayer connection problems, there’s still a fun and varied story experience waiting for you here.

    When it comes to Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package, the same question comes up over and over again: Who is this for? Here's a title that not only fails to win over fans of Dead Rising, but it also fails to win over fans of videogames. Slaying hundreds of thousands of zombies is not compelling entertainment, especially when the combat mechanics are so unsatisfying. The entire adventure just feels tired and cynical, sapping players of the necessary energy to carry on with their day. This critic racked up well over 25 hours of play and didn't laugh, not even once. What else needs to be said? Maybe this game is for people who no longer wish to experience joy.

    There are definitely some clunky menu issues and a bug here and there, nothing major or game breaking at least so far. I don't know whereThere are definitely some clunky menu issues and a bug here and there, nothing major or game breaking at least so far. I don't know where people get this notion that Dead Rising story was some like super cereal intriguing thriller but its about what you would expect more or less. Its extremely nice that the time limit thing is gone, as much as I liked Dead Rising I don't want to have to play a game 10 times to do everything. Pretty decent attempt from Capcom to change things up and bring in new people, not everything needs to cater to just the herpcore fan base that doesn't like change or apparently fun, cause the game is fun...There is a ton of content that its kind of surprising that Capcom didn't try and charge the full $60 for it Collapse Expand

Once you've played a couple hours, you'll played the game. The only semi-interesting game mechanic this game has is finding the weapon blueprints, other than that the zombies become more annoying the more you play, like get outta my way! Lame skill tree, story that is basically kitchen sink stuff. Mowing down hundreds of zombies is not fun anymore in 2018, especially if you can't create an interesting world, story, and innovative game play mechanics. I've played dead rising 2 like 10 years ago, there is literally nothing new in this game. Expand

    There's a ton of potential here, and it's completely wasted by removing series tropes in favor of nonsensical zombie killing.

    Easily the blandest game in the series, and no amount of costumes and post launch DLC will fix that. The game is fundamentally stunted due to poor response from controls, and a lack of things to do outside of the main missions, which are required to be done before one can have full access to the map in the last couple of missions. When your open world game doesn't open up until chapter 4, and it only has 6 chapters, there is a problem.

Removal of many of the series features let's it down including throwable items, psychopath bosses with cutscenes, lack of original Frank VA, time limit, campaign co-op and more! Along with bugs, crashes and the graphics being average at best with an unfinished look at times (but atleast it's more colourful than the 3rd game)

    I'm very surprised they didn't add campaign co-op with this second chance. It really shows just how much they listen to their fanbase. Add it back or it's 1/10 forever! This is definitely the worst Dead Rising game to date!

    Horrible excuse for a next generation entertainment. I haven't played Dead Rising since it came out on Xbox the first time and thought it hadHorrible excuse for a next generation entertainment. I haven't played Dead Rising since it came out on Xbox the first time and thought it had a lot of potential, here I am some odd years later going into Dead Rising 4 with an expectation for a fun game and see the next-gen improvements, but nope, barely anything has changed. Weak story line overall. They also got rid of the boss cutscene which usually builds up the intensity and the timer which gave it a sense of urgency, so all we're left with is something that feels like it could be done on a previous generation console. This game could've been fun if the developer would build up the story with references inspired by classic scenario zombie tropes like Zack Synder's Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later or so many other Zombie horror flicks, but no, the game story is so dull that I just ended up skipping through most of the cutscenes.

    In conclusion I'd say don't get this game unless they do something to fix it, the only way that this could be a pretty fun game is if this was 2005, but sadly this is 2017 and there should be no room for games like this when you're paying 60$ for it and could get other games like GTAV, MGSV, The Last of Us, Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Etc in comparison for the same price.
