Dead Rising is a new X360 game that is basically Dawn of the Dead. You play a photojournalist who’s covered wars and other dangerous places. You recieve a tip that the small town of Willamette, CO has gone off the map. No information is getting in or out of the town and all the roads are blocked. You hire a helicopter and as you’re hovering over the town realize that it’s infested with zombies. YOu convince the pilot to set you down at the main feature of the town a large mall and promise to pick you up in 72 hours right before he’s chased off by the military. Thus begins Dead Rising.
The great part about the game is all the zombies are slow and stupid, anything can be used as a weapon, and there’s over 59,000 zombies to kill. I’m about 24 hours into the game with over 1,000 zombies back in their graves. Too much fun.
