Dissapointing (in terms of controls)

I think that this is a good game, But I found it so disappointing. I have no problem with the story (which I liked) The characters (which was hit or miss for me) or the boss fights. I have played every Dead Rising game with the exception of Case Zero and of all of the games, this one's my least favourite because after I finished Off the Record I imediatly looked up to see if there was a third game. and I read about it and I was hyped and looking forward to it. To my disappointment it was an xbox one exclusive, I know that these games originated on xbox but I'd still like a port to PC or at least PS4 because of the constant frame rate drops that were nonexistent on it's predecessors. I can live with frame-rate drops if the controls were manageable. Yeah the real reason why I hate this game is is the fact that I found most of the commands tied in with other buttons and this game pulled an MUA PS3 edition of shaky-controller quicktime events that work depending how hard you shake the controller. I know that motion controls are now a norm for most games, BUT NOT WITH THE XBOX CONTROLLER. I probably would have liked this game more if the controllers weren't scarier than the new smarter zombies. it was a real shame considering how much the game offers (especially since you can go Chuck Greene anywhere instead of only in maintenance rooms.) If they ever make a DR4, I hope they get rid of the Gimicky motion controls and make the regular controls simple like in all the other games.

it is preaty good its a mixture of gta and resident evil, its a zombie game your mission is to find your way out and complete missions and side mission there is a good number of zombies I like it cause at times it has more xzombies than you can handle and u can mix weapons and cars to have a more powerful weapon or vehicles and there is 100 diff weapon mixtures and u can wear different clothes, its great, not the best but preaty good and its not a nightmare creepy game....

Good Concept, Horrible Controls

I love zombie games/movies. Grew up on the Resident Evils. This game is nothing like that. Almost no strategy involved. It's fun, in a simplistic kind of way. As others mentioned, crafting creative weapons and vehicles is fun. The missions get monotonous after awhile. You have to keep going back and forth, by yourself, over and over.

The worst part of this game is the controls. Your character moves like he is on ice skates. The combat situations in this game don't work with the controls. Not a fan of having to fight a boss that takes 4,000 rounds to kill. It's pretty much button - mashing and frustration against them. Never been as frustrated during a game as this one. Your life seems to deplete easily and trying to find food to replenish your health during a fight is even more frustrating.

Overall, graphics and scenery are the only reason this gets a 5. XBox1 graphics are pretty sick. The amount of zombies is awesome. But Microsoft should've scaled down the combat a bit, or made the controls more situated for combat. This is the only game I sent back before beating, and I always finish games. It's worth a rental to kill a day or two, but don't waste too much time on it.
