    Bit surprised by that score. The rumblings were that this game was a bit of a let down, but seems to be quite solid from those scores.

    ​aka Sparc

    Entropy isn't what it used be

    Cool thread!

    Game looks like solid fun. This would be the game I'd get if I was buying an Xbone at launch.

    I'm not sure if that was the case. What was mostly being said was that this is not a system seller; people acknowledged that the game was still fun.

    Most of what I read in negative was that it "wasn't truly next gen" because the graphics didn't knock your eyes out of your head. They seemed to miss the part about a thousand zombies onscreen in a large open world city with a couple hundred of those zombies rushing your car as you plow into them.

    I've always considered Dead Rising games more cult or niche favorites than AAA blockbuster breadwinners so the reviews expecting the latter out of DR3 don't surprise me the critics were discouraged.

    I believe that the letdowns come from visuals and framerate dips to 15 during action.

    such a fantastic game, GTA Zombie Killer, if you will.

    for those who don't understand the scale of the zombies in this game, i upgraded my truck with a cannon on the roof and had killed some 6,000+ zombies in under 40 minutes.

    and while i'd not say it does not happen, never noticed any slow down. crikies, killing zombies has never been this much fun
