the city of Los Perdidos, Nick Ramos must escape from the zombie infested
streets before it’s too late. With every exit out of the city blocked, Nick
requires the aid of friends to escape whatever the cost may be. And so begins,
Dead Rising 3.
While it may not be graphically impressive for the system, it makes up for it in its fun to play and highly addictive gameplay. The idea is simple, Zombies roam the streets and you simply
‘kill’ them with any weapon you can find, while finding other survivors and
helping them to safety. The weapons range from useless items like shampoo bottles
to the powerful battle-axes and swords. The game also boasts a good range of
guns with the likes of pistols, shotguns and machine guns.
machine gun it creates a four barrel gun. Combing a Chainsaw with a meat cleaver will somehow create two mini chainsaws. These all make no sense in their logic but that just adds to the stupidity of the game which somehow works in its favour. It’s not a game to be taken too seriously nor does it try to be. There also blueprints to create vehicles that are used to travel between the four areas of the map. These are created by combining two types of transport together such as a bike with a steamroller which creates a sort of bike of death with flamethrowers on the front. Two cars will create a
Junk Car that can fire acid and then there is stranger ones like combining a forklift with a party van, I won’t spoil that one for you.
put there to make the gamer explore on foot more and see parts of the map you
may have simply drove past. The world contains countless shops, bars, restaurants and
other such places where the player can stock up on food and supplies at any time. Some shops also have clothing, which gives you the ability to change the look of Nick. They range from Mexican Wrestler, Fung Fu master and Beach Bum to
the even stranger ones such as Women’s Lingerie (O_O) dresses and ‘Cow Girl’
style clothing. While you may not want to wear these (or do, it’s your choice!)
it just adds to the humour of the game. Of course there are suits and tuxedos
as well if you wish to be sensible.
frame rate. At one point I was driving a car down the street with at least 200
if not 300 zombies on the screen at once and it played smoothly with no lag.
Cut scenes are very good with strong voice acting and believable character
One small point though is that Nick is always a little bit too surprised every time something happens. For example, while making my way to a location, I chop and smash my way through hundreds of Zombies with no real fear
in Nick’s performance. However, in the next cut-scene, he entries a room that has about six zombies and he acts with fear and horror and this scene is about halfway through the game. It’s not too bad to start with but when you havenkilled well over 30,000 zombies at this point, it doesn’t match the game. The game does boast some of the strongest violence I have
ever seen in a game. You can chop off pretty much any part of the Zombies with
some strong graphic detail. At times, the violence is a little too strong but
this is why the game is an 18. If you dislike gore then you may not enjoy this
become more excitable when under attack from large groups but apart from that
you won’t even notice it half the time.
GTA5, this game pretty much requires you to do this to increase your health, strength and general speed in completing tasks.
or are barely even a shadow of the previous games in its series (Forza 5), this does feel like a full game from start to finish. Nothing feels left out for DLC and there is more content then you could wish for. I do have suspicions that
this game might have already been in production for Xbox 360 and at some point
was ported over as it is so large for a launch game. But those are just my
moments of horror and comedy. It may be a little frustrating at times but the
overall game is enjoyable you should at the very least try it as a rental.
