Dead Rising

Dead Rising is set to be released tomorrow, August 8TH, 2006, on the Xbox 360. Dead Rising is about a freelance photo journalist on the hunt for a big story. He travels to a small suburban town in pursuit of a hot lead, only to find that it's been overrun with zombies. It is somewhat like Resident Evil. There are plenty of things to explore on this game both indoors and outdoors.
The game uses a Real-time system, which means that certain events happen at certain times and if you're not there you'll miss it. This can be a real pain in the butt because if you miss something important and already saved the game you will have to start all over again. It's not fun having to be somewhere on time in real life and it's no different in a game. I advise you have a number of saves, so you don't have to go back to far if this happens to you.

At times the zombies will be swarming you, but not like other games, where only few would be on screen, there will be tons of them coming at you. Graphics are done very well, but could have been a bit better. Models look . Sounds and voices are outstanding. Overall, I rate this game 8.5, something most will find enjoyable to play.
