Usually I rent Dead Rising, play for about an hour or two, get bored and return it.
This time I can actually say they got it right.
The game is very addicting, and I've played hours so far just doing side quests and finding new weapon combos.
This is the only one I've liked of the series.
The story and voice acting kinda suck, but I think its supposed to be that way to coincide with the sarcastic humor.
Either way, great game!
Only took 1 star off because the main character isn't as cool as he could have been. Still hardly affects the game at all! :D

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.
