IGN: Dead Rising 3 Review

IGN: When I finally completed Dead Rising 3, the kill counter in the corner of my screen read 26,978. Also I was wearing a luchador mask for some reason. But anyway, that’s a really big number. It’s like killing one zombie per second for seven and a half hours, though I played far longer than that. The fact that I’m still ready and willing to go for another round with a co-op buddy is a good sign that Dead Rising 3 is packing enough variety and goofy action to make it a good time.

I wonder how many zombies someone has to kill to get the Genocide achievement? My guess is around half a million. Anyone else want to guess? Super excited to kill all those zombies. The short time I played it was the most fun I have had in a while.

this game looks hilarious and fun. Most fun game so far in the new generation

Certainly the best reviews so far. And the best impressions. Nobody has played it... so we only have so much to go on.

I agree that it looks like the most fun game so far.

Edit: Then again.... Forza and Ryse could be more fun.... =D

I have played most of the launch games for the next gen systems and in my opinion this is the most fun game. It just put a giant smile on my face. So excited for the game!

So far, Resogun has the best rating.

Okay... for me, PlayRoom has been the most "fun". Yeah, it's basically an AR demo, but every preview I saw, the people playing were laughing and having fun. Then when I played it with my wife and friend, we were laughing and having fun. Just my 2 cents on "most fun".

How is this a good review? The reviewer lists a mountain of problems and yet slams a 8.3 on it contradicting everything they mentioned. Bad story, awkward slow clunky controls, struggles to run on next gen hardware, 720p & 30fps or less. Also the whole fun argument, I can't argue with because that is completely based on personal preference. I can see how it is fun for maybe an hour or two, after that there is nothing there.

lol aye when I get this I'll be skint for a while! Never really been to a midnight launch but ah well might as well try it at least once.

Does anyone else see an enormous amount of Saints Row influence in this third installment in particular? I'm happy this game didn't tank because of trivial things such as technical performance, because it just looks like loads of fun.
