Kotaku: Dead Rising Wii Is A Terrible, Terrible Idea (Preview)

Kotaku writes: "I just spent some time playing Dead Rising on the Wii. Waiting in line, I was treated to one of the game's new additions: a new movie (you know, like the one that played if you left the title screen inactive on the 360 version). It was a zombie hardcore band, rocking out in front of a zombie hardcore crowd, like a music video. It was funny, I enjoyed it. Then I went inside and started playing. Things went downhill from there.

I spoke with Dead Rising Wii producer Mino Nakai yesterday. Having read Amanda's less-than-glowing impressions of the game from last week, I asked whether the stuff told Capcom her - mainly that a new, improved build would be playable at TGS - checked out. Know what he said? He said no, aside from a few minor bug fixes, this was the same build, because the game was nearly done.

Oh boy.

This game is a complete waste of time."

Too bad they didn't port it to PS3. That's really the only game I want to get a 360 for... oh yeah Fable 2, can't forget that one.

LeonSKennedy4Life3296d ago

It's the only game that almost made me buy a 360...

RememberThe3573296d ago

the worst part to me was when ever I found a weapon I liked it would break. Every f*ckin weapon in that game broke, it got really annoying.

:O

and i tought they only bashed things related to sony... :/

mikeslemonade3296d ago

It's not even that good on the 360. The fighting is like a one canned motion, the movement is clunky just like most Japanese games, you can't shoot/aim/run simultaneously, and the AI sucks similair to dynasty warriors where the zombies just look at you while you fight the few zombies in front of you. The game just gets a pass for being a good game just because it has zombies and it's open world game. Games that have Zombies or have Open World get atleast 8 out 10s. So Capcom said why not put those two things together?

I'm sure that Capcom had money in mind when they made this game for the Wii. But I wish they had concentrated more on making a sequel for 360/PS3.

Capcom is a good company but WTF were thinking? Lets have ALLLLL "few" of these zombies runnin around just "unlike" the 360 version? Well atleast you can kill'em! LMAO

qface643296d ago

the game will still sell ass loads some people will hate it some people will like it does it even matter

LeonSKennedy4Life3296d ago

You obviously haven't seen this version...

qface643296d ago

yes i have what does this that have to do with any of this?
it doesn't change the fact that the game will sell and there are gonna be some people out there that will like the game and hate it as well

ChickeyCantor3296d ago

Leon,
just shut it.

OT:
isn't it so you need to get moreinto the game before the actuall"joy" starts?

LeonSKennedy4Life3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Guys, do you not honestly understand what I'm saying?

Let me spell it out:

Even the most easily entertained human being can't like this game! Dead Rising is incredible! Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop is a terrible port!

Shouldn't we expect more from Capcom?

"isn't it so you need to get moreinto the game before the actuall"joy" starts?"

Can I interpret for you?

"Shouldn't you get more into the game before you actually "enjoy" it?"

For everyone that didn't understand this minor's logic, you're welcome.

Yes, it will sell well. I won't deny that. I'm just not sure it will be that enjoyable. Every game has people that love it and hate it. This one will definitely lean more towards the "hate" side. Do you see what I'm saying? I'm honestly not mad about this or anything...I just want you to understand what I meant.

Final_Rpg3296d ago

It's on wii, it has to sell!

qface643296d ago

do you understand what i was saying?
like i was saying there are gonna be people that enjoy this game for 2 reasons because its the first time playing dead rising and also because there are people out there that enjoy a game no matter how crappy it is some will like it some will hate it just like all games you can't really say a game is gonna lean more to the hate side when there are people out there that enjoy a game no matter what

ape0073296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

as much a I respect you(cause you love nintendo and have history with them)

I mean,yes smg is amazing but there's so much more gaming outside wii

do you love games?

look outthere the world is full of amazing and next gen games

see killzone 2,uncharted 2,gears 2,resi 5,etc.......................

how the hell anyone not commenting on BIG games and just comment on a CRAPPY port of dead rising,I swear if capcom announce dead rising 2 on ps3\360 with 2X graphics and gameplay,you'll pass it without even notice

FANBOYS JUST GET ON MY NERVES

kesvalk3296d ago

well i don't comment on the other consoles articles too, but is because the majority of then are flame wars so disgusting and stupid that it takes way my will to comment...

ChickeyCantor3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

"as much a I respect you(cause you love nintendo and have history with them)"

LMAO

"see killzone 2,uncharted 2,gears 2,resi 5,etc...."

Never liked killzone
Still need to play the first one
Gears was fun for 1 hour
Resi was never my type of game
Etc.

"how the hell anyone not commenting on BIG games and just comment on a CRAPPY port of dead rising,I swear if capcom announce dead rising 2 on ps3\360 with 2X graphics and gameplay,you'll pass it without even notice"

Pass what? the comment section? yes i would pass that.
I have been on those pages and you have to be f*cking carefull else those guys eat you up, you can't even be honest with them.

I never said this game is good, i liked it on the 360 though i was just wondering how much they got out of this "PREVIEW".
Capcom did say that after the beginning things will become more difficult.
I seriously don't see how you whent on and attack me by calling me a fanboy.

You screaming at me, and you wonder why I'm barely in the Ps3/360 sections...you already are eating me up here, and i didn't do anything "fanboyish". because i don't comment there doesn't mean im not watching videos/reading articles from that section.

man wtf is capcom doing,why they waste time on this halfassed console(even less than half assed)

why didn't work on ps3 version that have extras and 360 dlc and extra achievements

qface643296d ago

because capcom are incredibly cheap and they wanna make as much money as they can since they are spending so much on ps3/360 games

they are always complaining that production costs for the ps3 and 360 are too much blah blah

kesvalk3296d ago

say that after playing Monster Hunter 3 and Tatsunoko vs Capcom ¬¬

qface643296d ago

those 2 games are on my must have list
did you even understand what i said im not saying cheap in the bad way i mean cheap as in they don't like to spend much money

they seriously always complain about production costs of the ps3 and 360

Strife Lives3296d ago
