So if you have played the first Dead Rising 2 then you are not going to miss much. Sure they have added a sandbox mode which is cool and a extra 20 minutes to the end of the game but once its all said and done it still feels like the same game. At least rent it for the cool sandbox mode.

This is basically the same game as the Dead Rising 2 with Chuck Greene. All they did was edit out Chuck and put in Frank West, it has the same cutscenes the majority of the time, the same psychopaths, the same survivors, etc. There is a new place, however, Uranus Zone, which comes with a couple new psychopaths and survivors.
In the end, if you've played it's predecessor, Dead Rising 2, then I recommend NOT buying this game. It's too much of the same. However, if you've not played it, then I do recommend buying this game. I know that's a bit backwards, but it's all in good intentions.
