Dead Rising 4 - Black Friday Cinematic

    Clearly, Dead Rising 4 is rebooting the series. It’s an entertaining beat’em up, albeit one where I haven’t had a chance to play online ahead of launch. I still think it’s a great way to spend the holidays, but people who appreciated the earlier games may want to watch some gameplay videos or try a demo first.

    Saga fans and newbies will both enjoy Dead Rising 4. The first will enjoy it because there are zombies and a thousand ways to finish’em. The newbies because it is not a Dead Rising at all. Capcom Vancouver has left behind the elements that made great the original Dead Rising, but presents a more classical (and western) system, which will hook those players looking only for a good time in front of their consoles.

    Dead Rising 4 is a lot of fun, but the challenge and tension that made the first few games so unique are dead and buried.

    On many levels Dead Rising 4 is a disappointment, content to riff on the slapstick violence and revive past glories but showing no real desire to do anything new. There's precious little depth and the combat is shallow, while some sections seem designed to show up Frank's inability to cope with tooled-up human foes. Yet there's something weirdly cheerful and festive about Frank's misadventures, about crafting homebrew weaponry and putting it to work.

    Dead Rising 4 is a good game which takes most of the previous mechanics but forgets, once again, to implement the time limit we loved in the first episode. Some will be pleased, but the hardcore fans of the series won't.

    An unfunny and unfun mess of a game, Dead Rising 4 is a shambling corpse of a once-great franchise. Capcom would be wise to put it out of its misery.

    It's a pretty decent game with some characters, who make a good campaign and story with multiplayer, with a crazy and funky weapons catalog.It's a pretty decent game with some characters, who make a good campaign and story with multiplayer, with a crazy and funky weapons catalog. Not to mention the graphics and 60 fps, a cooperative mode for 4 players that make it fun! But ... hopefully capcom does not **** with the DLC's. Overall: The best video game in the saga!

    Note:10!

So many bugs, enemies getting trapped in walls, and can't clear out the survivor quest if this happens because you need to clear area. One survivor kept falling out of the roof and saying please help, then disappearing to fall again. I killed the first three bosses within seconds, no challenge. Also I looked online and I saw Boss cutscene which when I played did not. There is no timer for quests so there is no rush or emergency to finish tasks. It is more like a sandbox game with poor story, and no ambition. I have not played campaign yet but not in a rush too either. It is almost impossible to take pictures without being attacked, and really wish I would have kept my $ for pre-order for Southpark but those jerks postponed it. What I enjoyed about the past games were the psychopaths, and rescuing survivors to have to escort them. This game you clear an area which is super easy, they say thanks and take off. This game pisses me off so bad I made an account to do a first review of a game ever. I would have returned it to Game Stop but they have crappy return policy. Live and learn. Expand
