Fair

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.

Dead Rising 3 is an overall great game, but it lacked in a few areas for me. This is the first time I played the Dead Rising series. The graphics are great and the amount of zombies on screen at once is insane. Game runs great, tons of ways to kill zombies. The game just did not keep my attention. But cant fault the game.

So I spent the better part of 5 hours trying to figure out how co-op worked on this game. Got so mad I went And looked up online how to found out this game has had many people asking the same thing.

Tried every thing to get it fixed nothing worked.

Game play was clunky, Frame Rate was all over the place. The boss Battles where Too predictable.

And the story was dried out.

Over all I give this game a 1/10 It was nothing but a major headache to play.
