Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
Freelance photographer Frank West is stuck in a shopping centre full of zombies and he’s only got 72 hours to escape. How he manages that feat is entirely up to you, with his fate, that of dozens of other survivors and a legion of the walking dead entirely in your hands.

The lowdown:
Since this is basically an unofficial video game remake of Dawn of the Dead it tries to recreate all the major elements from the movie, including scenes with hundreds of zombies on screen at once. Given free reign in the shopping centre there are 250 different objects you can use to dispatch them but in the end escape is your own really option. The question is how you manage it and whether you properly investigate what’s going, try and help other survivors or photograph their demise in an attempt to win a Pulitzer. Although helping the survivors involves some fairly dull escort mission the only real flaw is the oddly strict save system which won’t let you save more than once. It’s not nearly enough to spoil the fun of a good zombie massacre though.

Most exciting moment:
Undoubtedly the best fun in the game is, much like Grand Theft Auto, not completing the missions but just mucking around – which inevitably involves attacking zombies with everything from a lawnmower to ladies’ handbags. Doing so with a cartoon head on and a pair of hotpants raises the level of surreal fun even further.

Since you ask:
Although officially the game is nothing to do with Resident Evil, the game contains a number of sly references to the series. One of the more subtle is the sandwich bar “Jill’s Sandwiches”, named after the famously awful line of dialogue in the original Resident Evil game.

The bottom line:
An action game with zombies, weapons and options by the hundreds.
HARRISON DENT

Product Description

Dead Rising follows the harrowing tale of Frank West, an overly zealous freelance photojournalist on the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to a small suburban town only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. He escapes to the local shopping mall, thinking it will be a bastion of safety yet it turns out to be anything but. It will be a true struggle to survive the endless stream of enemies, but players will have full reign of a realistic shopping center, utilizing anything they find to fight off the flesh-hungry mob and search for the truth behind the horrendous epidemic. Dead Rising features an open level of freedom and offers a vast array of game play possibilities. As part of a real time system, time is dynamic in Dead Rising, marching on whether Frank is actively engaged or if simply stationary. Time also plays a role as zombies become more powerful when the sun goes down. Though they move slowly during the day, the zombies become stronger and faster at night, making it even more dangerous for players to survive. The unprecedented numbers of enemies come in never-ending waves and consist of a diverse population of former humans that have retained some memory of their previous lives, which is reflected in their behavior and appearance. The variety of different stores in the mall offers players an endless supply of resources including vehicles, makeshift weapons and more. Players will also encounter other survivors along the way and by helping them can acquire valuable clues as to what has happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the casual gamer... 12 Oct 2006
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm amazed how anyone can't appreciate the techinical achievement that this game is. It is not possible to do this in any platform available today, but the 360 (or some high-end PC)!!! There's 800 characters moving on screen at the same time - the maintnance tunnels for instance.

The story line is one of deepest I've seen in any game, but one has to dedicate much, much more than just a few minutes,

This is an hardcore game at heart. It's Capcom, so expect to offer your time and soul to the experience, otherwise stay away. It's hard! You got to play at least 5 times from start to finish in order to level your character up and learn all the fine/fancy moves, and then you'll have to pull much more than just one button, as a matter of fact there's some pretty hard to pull moves that involve a serie of nutton combination + analog stick push/pull - 25 different moves, that include neck break; round kick, zombie throw, etc. and those are not random, one has to actually do it.

Graphicwise the game's great, zombies has disctinct looks, and very little repitition. Capcom used the very good Havok engine (used by other high-profile new games).

Of course the game has flaws, like aiming wich although explained at the begining of the game (Frank - our character - never had shoot a gun in his life), some unbalanced guns (handgun are way too underpowered, and mini-chainsaw is an unstopable killing machine); the "real-time" structure mixed with the one-slot save can be a pain (although Frank's stats do pass from a game to another) but the biggest "flaw" for me is that I don't have the time (not a teen anymore) to dedicate myself to the game as much as it demands, but for this I don't blame the game, it's just the way it is.

If you can live with this buy it, it's a landmark on the videogame industry. I can understand people beeing angry with the difficulty of the game, but it's not Capcom's fault, they are hardcore!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody good bloody fun. 30 Jan 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a game that requires concentration and persistence. Put in the hours and the game comes to life in a way that is very addictive. It may not satisfy the 'I need a quick shoot 'em / bash 'em fix' but it is certainly one of the most original games for the 360.

I have completed the game 4 times now and have unlocked almost all of the achievements (zombie genocider being the most satifying = 55,000 bodycount, yes that 1000 times 55!). This game excels in its intensity. Stuck in a crowd of zombies with a limping survivor and limited weaponry? Think hard on how you are going to get to the security room. By the time you get there you will be breathing a big sigh of relief.

Graphics are good but not excellent but how many other games have hundreds of 'intelligent' zombies on-screen at any one moment?

If you don't like edge of your seat missions with rigid timescales then steer clear of this game. If, like me, you love blood and gore galore, then saddle up, lock and load and kick zombie bottom in a huge variety of humorous ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the Blood!!! 21 Feb 2007
By J. Snook VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In this game you play as a journalist called Frank West and you are left in a shopping mall to take pictures and gather stories...and Oh yea, the mall is full of zombies. After a few cutscenes, your 72 hour notice of when the helicoptor will be back to pick you up is set and then your off to do whatever you like.

Some people may be put off by the fact that there is a time limit, but its not as if you are going to be in constant worry that you are going to miss the chopper because 72 hours of game time is still many hours of real time gameplay.

You can tackle this game in many different ways, you can stick to the main story and try to uncover the causes for the zombie outbreak, you can go about rescuing survivors, or you can just go exploring and killing and basically causing as much mayhem as possible. Each of these poses different opportunities and rewards and therefore leads to a game with incredible replayability value. I love the shopping mall, because its big, but not too big. This is good because you dont get that dreaded feeling of its too big to explore properly. So after many hours of gameplay, you may end up learning where things are hidden and the most efficient way to get from place to place, and this in my opinion gives a real sense of achievement.

I must admit, it does take a while to get into the game because of the contols and the fact that you are so weak at the start. But keep playing and you'll soon be enjoying it.

Some people found it difficult at the start of the game, but you will progress up to level 10-15 quite quickly and in doing so, the game will become easier to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game! 19 Jan 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ive had my Xbox 360 for a few weeks now (Since Christmas) and this was one of the first games I played on it, all I can say is what an amazing game! Theres so much to do theres just not enough time to do it all in one playthrough its got 6 different endings and another 2 gamemodes to complete after the first one. If mowing down hordes of zombies with either a chainsaw, a lawnmower or a variety of tools and weaponry isnt fun enough for you try doing that while uncovering the mystery behind the zombie outbreak and rescuing as many survivors you can in the process. Throughout the game you'll meet a variety of different characters all with their own individual personalitys from the good and helpful Otis (Security Guard) to a slightly less friendly Crazed Chainsaw Wielding Clown (Sound Fun?) Its up to you to decide which path you take in order to escape the mall.

And as for the person who reviewed this complaining about small text on a Standard Television there is a easy way to fix this problem by simply setting your Xbox 360 to Widescreen Mode (Doesnt matter if you dont have a Widescreen TV) as it will stretch the image slightly but vastly improve the text readability.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy this game!
