Great Zombie Game !!
Well I got to say this is one of My favorite Games ,it is so intense the side Missions ,the Cases it is a really good game that will keep You entertained and engaged in the story, i have to say I couldnt ask for more in this Game ,and I have to say one of the challeging Games I ever played a must buy :D
Great Zombie Game!
First off, the price is $5. That should make you at least want to try it out. Second the weapon choice is massive. You want that park bench to kill zombies? Then go get it and ram them! It has a decent story line and it will keep you entertained, and it's very addicting. The only down side to this game would have to be the save system. You have an entire mall to explore and kill the undead. So go get the game and do so.
Hard and lame
No save points. As soon as you pass that one level you;ve been trying so hard on bam you die. RESTART!
This game started an amazing zombie series
This is an awesome third person open world zombie game. You can run around the mall and pick up almost anything in the mall to use as a weapon. The newer versions are better but it is still fun to see where the series started.
Great free-roam for only 5$. The zombies are not scary and so many ways to fight such as
giant lego head
a timed game:(
the whole game is timed you are rushed for every mission and theres psycos every where! what would frank do? kill zombs of course i was in love tell i died all the time and had to save in every bathroom:( its an ok game sure its fun to kill and an ok storyline! rent it dont buy it:)
best zombie game on sale
good graphics and so many weapons and zombies so theres never a time in the game where theres nothing to do.
A very good, very original game
Dead Rising is very fun and offers a very unique experience. It's part 3rd-person-action game, part RPG, part mystery and part horror/zombie apocalypse. You level up and gain new abilities/more life/more inventory slots as you accomplish in-game goals and kill zombies. Two important things to note about this game: 1) You really don't have to do the "Main Story Missions"; your ending will depend on how much of the mystery of the zombie outbreak you discover through the main story missions BUT just surviving the outbreak long enough to hitch a ride out of the mall is an accomplishment in itself. 2) You will most likely NOT beat the game on your first attempt. When you die you start over from day 1 BUT you keep all your experience and levels gained. The point of this is that while you might die without beating the game you'll get another chance as a stronger character with more moves and better stats. This process can be repeated until you become strong enough to last through the entire zombie infestation. While there are many reviews stating that this system is annoying or aggravating look at it like this: just screw around in the mall killing zombies and just trying to survive until your evac arrives your first time or two through..... when you are comfortable with the mall and your character is all super-buff perhaps give the Story Missions a try. Trust me, it's more fun and less frustrating this way (and this is coming from someone who LOVES difficult games like Dark Souls).
The sound/music is OK and the graphics are pretty good considering the age of this game. If you have surround sound it makes the game MUCH freakier.... makes it literally sound like there are zombies clawing at the walls of your house.
This game is really about the substance and not the frills. It basically boils down to this: you are trapped in a zombie-infested shopping mall for a certain number of days.... the only weapons you have are what can be found in the mall itself... meaning you will be using some unusual weapons like barbells, umbrellas, CDs, parasols, etc. You earn experience and level up as you go along and learn all sorts of cool moves as you level up. There are plot missions that allow you to learn why these events are transpiring and the amount that you complete helps determine your ending. In theory you can ignore them totally and just focus on surviving and your ending will be affected accordingly.
While Dead Rising 2 took the formula of this game and enhanced it I'd STRONGLY recommend playing this game first. When you START with a sequel and then play the original game it can sometimes make it unplayable due to story spoilers and the removal of all of the improvements typically seen in sequels. When the original game is THIS good and this good of a value (about $5 for potentially a hundred of so hours of gaming goodness) you'd be doing yourself a disservice by missing out on Dead Rising 1. Dead Rising 2 is a VERY cool game that adds just enough to where going back to Dead Rising 1 would be a strong regression.... so pick this one up first, and if you like it you know you have a LOT more content just waiting at the store for you to pick up at your leisure. And I mean, come on! You get to use ANYTHING you can find in a shopping mall to kill zombies?? There are not a whole lot of games/books/movies/ANYTHING that have that cool of a concept.
needs hardly any improvement.
dead rising is a good game.Probably the only things wrong with it is it's hard and there's about 20 bosses and you have a total of about 5 hours (real time). now i'll list the pros and cons . .pros:funny,lots of replay value,anything is a weapon,freeworld. . cons:some disturbing images.
Alright, better sequel
The Deadrising series is great, killing zombies with anything and everything, fighting epic boss battles and saving survivors! Although the other Deadrising games were awesome, the first just doesn't meet certain expectations for me! I find just free roaming and killing zombies to be boring in this, there isn't enough items to use like there is in the other games. I also find it hard to get to the story mission, because there is either an enemy to kill you or zombies to eat you! Aside from all of that the camera portion of the game is fun to use, you can take pictures with Frank's camera, and you can actually get some pretty funny photos! XD Overall I wouldn't recommend this game to everyone but instead maybe to people who want to try something different. I do know one thing though, Deadrising is a great series!
