Not bad!

Only got one hour with it on trial, so obviously I didn't see all the mechanics. What I did see and experience was fun. I like to take my time and explore as much as possible. So while some have said the lack of the game clock makes it feel less like DR, which I somewhat agree with, it allows a lot more freedom. The investigation aspect reminds me of the Arkham series, which I love. Looking forward to buying this when I have some extra cash.

Least Good Dead Rising

For those who played the others, Frank's recasting isn't even a blip on the radar when it comes to disappointment. Psychopaths were memorable. For many, Adam the clown (despite being optional) managed to upstage the story villains. Great enemies, despite their brief appearances, showing the effectiveness of their encounters. Now such encounters have no cut scenes, they wield basic combo weapons, and aren't even fun to fight. The classic bosses were challenging (some to cruel degrees). They're now less threatening than certain zombies. Worse: I killed them all, but can't recall more than a few as they were NOT FUN OR CHALLENGING. As for customization, it's literally cropped from DR3, not even changing some icons. Most normal and combo weapons are wastes of time. Lack of co-op is saddening, only leaving a 1-4 player mode with no clothing options that is exclusively in the mall. The final boss was more memorable than ever, though. Worth playing, but the previous entries are far better.

The Godfather of MMO Zombie Slaying!!!!!

What's not to love? The only wish I have is you should be able to make all the old weapons without a blueprint As long as the player can remeber them. It's like Frank smoked to much Zombrex and can't remember how to take a machete and tape it to a broomstick.Also games not long enough. NEEDS MORE MISSIONS AND MANIACS. Maybe couple more DLC stories.This game is one of the few that I have to buy double copies of and 2 season passes for.1 for me and 1 for my son. It's father son time at it's best.Being a single father raising a kid with only 1 paycheck it's frustrating that I buy games on the 360 and than have to buy them again for the Xbox 1 .But love dead rising keep up the good work. ONE last thing a full zombie Frank game.You make combo weapons with Frank drink gas turn into a walking flamthrower knives through hands FRANKERINE.Nails through the hands b!tch slap zombies heads off.Eat bullets become a pistol spitting them out and add something else machine gun swords human porcupine

❤ My New Favorite! ❤

Before Dead Rising 4, my favorite was Dead Rising 2 Off The Record on the Xbox 360. No, not the Xbox One remaster, because it crashes in long play sessions, just like the DR2 remaster. Onto DR4, this outstanding sequel has made a number of improvements for the series! The numbered health bar is easier to keep track of than the life cubes from older games, although I didn't hate the cubes either. Weapons and vehicles now rock a super-helpful durability meter, too! Online co-op has went from 2 players to 4, AND can be competitive due to the points system! I could go on and on. Frank's new voice actor honestly doesn't get enough credit, as he is still extremely hilarious at times with his attitude. As for the Maniacs replacing the Psychopaths, I didn't mind the change, and they can be a real challenge to defeat. Speaking of challenge, updates have added DIFFICULTY SETTINGS! YES! 👏 As a skilled DR player, it makes me very happy! So, there you have it..... DEAD RISING 4 IS AMAZING! YEAH! ❤

Dont buy!!!

Not worth the money! FEW hours for campain, total let down first ones in franchise were better as they had much more to offer. For the die hard fans you spend little to no time in the mall nor would you want to spend your time in the mall as it is boring. The game feels repetitive, and felt VERY EASY. As i beat the game in at least a day and a half STILL DOING SOME SIDE MISSIONS. Customizing was good as well as the weapons. The story was to me the worst of the franchise as it lacked development and personality. Frank as well did not seem like Frank West as he was not cocky, ignorant, and comedic in the other games. The game was lacking content. I did have a few laughs and some fun with the game but there was NOT ENOUGH of it. The dlc is another thing it is crap there is NO point in buying it as it is garbage as it just trys to SQUEEZE you of the money you have. All in all the concept of the game was fine but the execution was bad. I would rate this game a 6/10. Good day to you sirs.

Too easy

dr1 was perfect it brought us everything we expected in dr4 but no simple fights. if you make lots of weapons the game will be really easy and frank is NOT the old frank he jokes alot like when he says "There was a bee on you" is not funny i reinstalled it just for frank rising to see if it makes the game better and dr4 only had one ending. I looked a the achievements ands it showed frank rising achievements and one said get the best ending so now im hoping i will enjoy the DLC

Its great! yes it different in alot of ways. its still great though like really great. while off the record is my all time fav and i have a soft spot for dead rising 3 as it was my first one game, this is the most FUN entry in the series. Its story and voice acting is far from best in the series, but its gameplay and fun factor are flawless.

All the stuff your love about DR... it's not here. No entertaining boss encounters and no super combo weapons. Serious disappointment. Also, I paid premium bucks at release for the Season Pass. Where TF is the DLC after THREE MONTHS!?!?
