"If Dead Rising were a movie, it would sit comfortably in the B movie horror/comedy sub genre. The story is pure B grade cheese loaded with ridiculous scenarios, peppered with plot induced stupidity. That's not to say it's awful. The unfolding of the story is interesting enough. The dialog is, well, not as bad as Capcom's usual efforts and the voice acting is decent. Ultimately it doesn't matter much because we didn't come for the writing; It's a Zombie Apocalypse and anything can potentially be a weapon!"
