IGN: "Dead Rising is one of the favorite current-gen games among IGN editors. For those who didn't play Dead Rising, you were a photojournalist who got trapped in a mall when a zombie outbreak occurred. Your goal was to survive until help arrived and then escape said help before they had a chance to kill you.
Having sold more than a million copies on Xbox 360, there's little doubt that a sequel is coming. Rather than wait for Capcom to announce Dead Rising 2 and provide any gameplay details, we decided to dive right in and decide what additions should be made for the sequel."
