Vivid Gamer's Grant Gaines writes, "It’s easy for us gamers to get quickly attached to a franchise’s characters. Uncharted for instance could easily do a side game without Drake and star Victor (my personal dream). However, many would expect Drake in every Uncharted title, which is exactly what happened with Dead Rising 2. After seeing the man who’s covered wars in at least four other Capcom games, fans were expecting another go with Frank West. This obviously did not happen, but due to demand, Capcom redid Dead Rising 2 with Frank West as the leading character. This begs the question: is this enough to justify another game?"
