Review: 'Dead Rising 3' is the Xbox One launch game you want - The Globe And Mail

The Globe And Mail: If it’s a true “next-generation” game you’re after, look no further than Dead Rising 3. Capcom Vancouver’s gory, over-the-top zombie thriller is a technological masterpiece that amply showcases the power of Microsoft’s new Xbox One console. But more importantly, it’s also immensely and outrageously enjoyable. While other launch titles for the Xbox One and Sony’s rival PlayStation 4 are doing much to show off their respective systems’ improved graphics, Dead Rising 3 goes beyond that simple call of duty, no pun intended. It masterfully uses the console’s beefed-up processing power to pump not just a few more, but a ton more things onto the screen – in this case, of course, it’s zombies. (Dead Rising 3, Xbox One) 10/10

My original comment was about the score on Metacritic from the Globe And Mail. I did not see the score of 10 out of 10 in the top left hand corner of the review under the image. Dead Rising 3 and all those zombies are going to put a smile on my face!

Edit to kiz's comment below: Oh haha I thought you meant that I should withdraw my comment.

It's a review or an advertisement for X1 and its games. Really confusing.
malokevi  +   618d ago
This article has drawn more comments then any other article on the board by a wide margin, and has a heat score of 320 degrees.

I'm not saying that N4G is owned, controlled and manipulated by Sony.... but that's exactly what I'm saying.
xHeavYx  +   618d ago
Check the main page. PS4 negative article (Red light related) has over 1000 degrees with 130 comments, and a positive one (fastest selling console) has 750 degrees with 113 comments, that's only a 17 comments difference.
I'm not saying you are full of it... but that's exactly what I'm saying

10/10...are they talking about framerate?

Rev3 gave it a 3/5
StraightPath  +   618d ago
the most fun and worthwhile next gen game at the moment. Looks so much fun. A lot of people just getting Xbox One for this game. I mean who wants to play a generic shooter and some crap platformer on another platform?
kiz2694  +   618d ago
Me. It wouldn't call KZ:SF a generic shooter its one of the most original shooters there is. And Knack is a very selective taste type of game, some will love it, some wont. Dont state other people wont enjoy games, everyone is different. Now shh troll.
NoLongerHereCBA  +   618d ago
StraightPath, why the need to troll? What's the use? I wouldn't call KZSF a generic shooter or knack a crap platformer.

A 10/10 for Dead Rising 3 goes a bit to far imo (though I haven't played it), but I'm glad the game is getting reviews around the 7.5-8 mark a lot. Seems like a worthy game to pick up when the Xbox One is released.
malokevi  +   618d ago
We don't need to put down PS4 games. XB1 has a great game here. No need to stir up more confrontation.

Obviously u speak out ur ass as I'm sure u haven't played knack or killzone. Knack is a surprise hit shot down by reviewers for god knows what. If u gave games outside ur comfort Zone a chance then Ud realize how ignorant ur comment is

What r the disagrees for? What u guys are scared to go out of ur comfort zone?

Not even sure why I Take time to combat trolls, but Killzone is a great game. If you think otherwise (without even playing it) your out of your mind. Much better than BF4 and COD ghosts.

Knack I have but haven't played yet, so I can't comment.

Which improvents? More zombies and bigger world? NO!

I don't wanna spend 500$ on console which can't run a game properly with akward graphics and unstable framerate ( drops from 30 to 16 according to DF framerate test )

From IGN :

Notice that I didn’t say it was pretty. Dead Rising 3 runs at an upscaled 720p resolution, it doesn’t have amazing textures outside of its cinematics, and it suffers from regular framerate stutters and occasional walls that pop in after you’ve driven into them. It doesn’t look a whole lot better than what you’ve probably played on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

lol it's 720p and not even locked at 30fps...Don't get me wrong not saying it's bad game but definitely not push the graphical bar.
jetlian  +   618d ago
if you cant see the difference in graphics thats on you



imt558  +   618d ago

No, you don't understand me. XO is powerful enough even to handle much better graphics than DR3 has and at 900p or 1080p, not graphics that is little better than current gen.

Holy hell in a hand-basket!!! WOOO!!

this game cant compete with gta v or the last of us so 10 out of 10 is bs

But still, i think its better than Killzone

maybe i'm looking too much into this but... they gave Killzone 6/10, 1,5 points below average... and then give Dead Rising 3 10/10, 2 points above average. Smells fishy.

Salooh  +   618d ago
I don't need to play it to know it's place. I can score the games before even playing them. I know it's vision , graphics , gameplay , story just by watching it's videos. I can do that in all games. It's rare when i'm wrong about this.

For me , this game wouldn't get more then 8/10 . No way this is 10/10 on next gen. I know X1 can do much better. Look at quantum break . This game is about fun and that's it. Nothing breath taking to get that score.

DR3 is no doubt a good game, but my assumption is that the reviewer really enjoyed the game as he's given it a 10/10 which would be the first, So far the lowest is 6/10 from joystiq many 7-8/10's but this is the first perfect. I really hope it's this good cause I will be playing it on friday.
Salooh  +   618d ago
Never hype a game. Just play it with open mind. Some played the last of us and hated it , why?. because people were praising it a loooot even though it deserve it.

Doing this will make you have fun more. Well , that's how i do it. So that i don't get disappointed and get impressed if it's a great game..
Ashby_JC  +   618d ago
I agree. It's the same for movies as well. Hype it up. Go in with to high expectations and get let down.

I'm not going in with any high expectations for any xbox one games.

These are the first wave..I'm looking forward to the next waves of games from both systems.

"technological masterpiece" that runs in 720p with a frame rate that dips below 30..k
But the game looks fun nonetheless.
Concertoine  +   618d ago
I think the lack of loading screens and number of zombies on screen are still pretty admirable technological feats.
Especially as the old games had terrible load times.
Death  +   618d ago
The game runs in 1080p, but it's native resolution is 720p. There is a very expensive upscaler that bumps the resolution to 1080p for all games regardless of the native resolution. Unless you are sitting 2-3 feet away like you would a PC monitor, the difference between native and upscaled is hard to see.
thekhurg  +   618d ago
You don't understand how upscaling works, do you?
Death  +   618d ago

Upscaling will fill in missing pixels by duplicating nearby pixels. On a native 1080p game the developer assigns those pixels manually or in some instances it's done just like hardware upscaling but on the software side.

I haven't seen anything that really screams higher quality with the native and upscaled images we have seen on the net. Most of the differences we have seen is minimal at best and has more to do with AA and filtering. Until devs get used to the eSram setup on the Xbox, I expect this to be the case.
Z_-_D_-_3  +   618d ago
I was thinking the same thing, there's simply too many technical drawbacks for this title to merit a 10. ANYTHING below a perfect score would be acceptable, but this review is a bit hyperbolic.
ufo8mycat  +   618d ago
720p? Don't care
This game looks like so much damn fun!

"Capcom Vancouver’s gory, over-the-top zombie thriller is a technological masterpiece that amply showcases the power of Microsoft’s new Xbox One console."

Stopped reading there. Ya I bet the game is fun. Technological masterpiece? Really?

10/10? Really? Hell I didn't even think GTA V deserved a 10/10.

Oh well
mochachino  +   618d ago
Lol any reviewer giving 10/10 to game like Dead Rising raises red flags of review score inducements.

10/10 is a revolutionary game that changes the course of the industry, Dead Rising is no such game irrespective of how fun it may be.

Standards in quantifying qualitative products is necessary.

Globe and mail gives 10/10 way to much, it detracts from the value of their review scores.

"Standards in quantifying qualitative products is necessary."

So you're trying to do it yourself? A standard will never happen anyway, lol.

mochachino  +   618d ago
Lol it up all you want, but where a professional reviewer's standards are discordant will the majority of gamers that reviewer loses all value as a reviewer.

In order to trust reviewer scores and assessments people need to feel like the reviewers standards for what constitutes "perfect or revolutionary", "good", "great", "average", "bad", "horrible" etc. are more or less in line with their own. If you throw out perfects all the time...there's no point explaining this to you if you don't get it already.

Think what you want. It's not my own standard, it's common sense. But anyways, all the best.
