    Pretty much exactly what I was expecting. Middling scores for an uninspired sequel to a humerous but lackluster series.

    Looks like both consoles are going to be disappointing in quality launch titles.

    If I was going to get an Xbox One at launch this would definitely be the game I would get.

    Dead Rising 3 is getting some nice scores! I have always thought Microsoft’s lineup was much more fleshed out right from the start. The 4 games that I really, REALLY wanted were Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct and Ryse. Looks like Killer Instinct and Dead Rising are going to be great, we know Forza’s going to be awesome. Hoping Ryse turns out to be great as well. I think it’ll surprise a lot of people. I definitely made the right choice! Come on November 22nd!

    Great scores.

    REALLY want to see Ryse reviews though. Having them held back screams of a shite game.

    I REALLY hope not.

    @7 Exactly what I was thinking. I’m getting the same games and can’t wait for Friday!

    Edit: 90/100 –

    Last I checked, 5 was middling, not 7.

    Again, decent scores. This one actually exceeded my expectations though.

    Never played the Dead Rising franchise. But I might pick this up when I get my Xbox next year.

    USGamer 4/5

    Edge states it’s locked at 30 fps after a day 1 patch but EG says there’s tons of slowdown even after it’s patched. Will have to wait and see if the low fps is still really an issue.

    @11 Last time I checked, the majority of the media was incapable of scoring under 7. A 5 (average) in most other markets is a 7 for most publications and websites.

    This seems to be the best scoring exclusive during launch for either console (Unless Resogun and Forza might surpass it).

    After I watched a video where they cooped and one of them meld two cars into one single awesome Zombie munching, confetti shooting hoovercraft, I thought it look fun. Wont buy an Xbone though.

    #16 Resogun has surpassed it.

    Ireland. Must be tough to live in such a depressing world. Yours.

    I do not live there and am happy for it. This game looks fun and I will enjoy on Friday. Cheers.

    @19: sure, enjoy it. doesn’t mean everyone else has to feel the same about it.
    i’m not feeling this game either. never liked the dead rising games much but that doesn’t feel depressing at all to me.
