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.

10 out of 10! Awesome!

kiz2694894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

Withdraw comment :P

NYC_Gamer894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

The score is on the left side 10/10

Dragonborn312894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

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.

kiz2694894d ago

Didnt mean you, I ment I have withdrawn my comment :P

Freedomland894d ago

It's a review or an advertisement for X1 and its games. Really confusing.

malokevi894d 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.

xHeavYx894d ago

@Malokevi
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

TheGreatAndPowerful894d ago

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

Rev3 gave it a 3/5

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?

kiz2694894d 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.

NoLongerHereCBA894d 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.

malokevi894d ago

We don't need to put down PS4 games. XB1 has a great game here. No need to stir up more confrontation.

JokesOnYou894d ago

StraightPath, why the hate? Nobody was trolling until you said that...can't we just enjoy that X1 has some great launch games?

Derajcan2894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

agreed! xbox one has the better games and thats no surprise

sincitysir1894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

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?

LiQuiZoN894d ago

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.

Ashby_JC894d ago

There is a reason you have one bubble.

I like to feel that xbox gamers are above the trolling..guess not. But all that replied...kudos for NOT supporting troll comments such as this.

EdoubleD894d ago

You don't deserve that Big Boss avatar...troll.

Perhaps I was playing it wrong.... maybe having missions and task makes it more appealing than what was at the Xbox One tour.

WTF?

jetlian894d ago

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.

Brix90894d ago

"The power"

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.

imt558894d ago

@jetlian

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.

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

So it seems like some reviewers had the patch and others didn't strange. Regardless, this game is going to be insanely fun.

MasterCornholio894d ago

Does the patch fix the frame rate issues?

Loki86894d ago

According to EDGE and destructoid it does.

kiz2694894d ago (Edited 894d ago )

Good news actually, really wanted this to be a hit :)
