    Imagine being Microsoft, offering Q&A teams for this game, and throwing cash at it to be made, only to have the superior (relatively speaking) version go to your competitor…

    People should save their money anyways.

    This game is ass.

    God I love Dead Rising but after replaying DR1 and Off the Record on PS4 last year I don’t think I even want to play this. Almost everything about it disappoints me as a huge fan of the series.

    Maybe people who have no attachment to the first few games will enjoy it more.

    Can’t wait to see it flop for a third time.

    I was never a huge fan of this series but always respected it…until i watched a about 20 minutes of DR4…whoever thought making Frank West a childish arrogant douchebag was a good idea should be blacklisted from making games.

    Dead Rising 3 is one of the best launch games ever made. Dead Rising 4 is a piss poor follow up with the only saving grace being the Christmas setting.

    I bought Dead Rising 3 when it was cheap and I have to say the game was surprisingly dumb fun, it scratched that itch just going around and mindlessly kill a ridiculous amount of zombies. Dead Rising 4 however, looks like a run-of-the-mill Dead Rising game that didn’t exactly sell like hotcakes. I’ll probably get this…when its in the bargain bin.

    They needed to set the price at $20. That’s how much I pay for budget games.
