Dead Rising review

  • Free-roaming zombie bludgeoning
  • Shoot zombie cleavage, play dress up
  • Good blend of humor and gravity
  • One-save-only system
  • Hard to aim precisely
  • Survivors don't always cooperate

It's this severe push for gamers to be determined and persistent enough to explore every nook and cranny in Dead Rising that makes it either a splendid, geeky Pandora's Box full of unrelenting challenge and rewards or controller-smashingly difficult because of its hardcore mentality. If you've got the urge to save the world from a zombie invasion and won't let things like a wonderfully skewed difficulty level or some stressful multi-tasking stop you - Capcom's got your Valentine in Dead Rising.

    Yeah, I know about Overtime Mode. But, as Pieisgoood says, it's very difficult to obtain.

    You CAN unlock unlimeted mode, but I CANT FING DO IT!!! that stupid arbitrary 7 hour crap combined with the stupid arbitrary ha-ha-you-cant-save-without-bathroom thing make it near impossible. But im probebly just retarted, so I did like the game.

    oryandymackie: after you beat the 72 hour mode or 'story mode' you unlock overtime mode with no time limit
