Been looking for this to go with the new 360.
Pretty good price, was only released on Classics a week ago with a RRP of £24.99.
From the makers of 'Resident Evil' comes one of the fastest selling games on Xbox 360. 'Dead Rising' takes the zombie gaming experience to new levels, bringing open-ended action to this well established genre. Use whatever you can find to fend off the human-hungry baddies, whether it's a golf club to the groin, or a wet fish to the face!
You play as free-lance photographer Frank West, who's looking for a scoop in an idyllic suburban town. When he finds the residents are all becoming zombified, he makes his way to the local shopping mall to get to the bottom of the mysterious going-ons. Set in and around the shopping mall, the game offers a huge, free-roaming experience, where time is never on your side. Watch out for when darkness falls, as this gives the zombies even more power, making your struggle to survive even more difficult.
'Dead Rising' features an open level of freedom and offers a vast array of gameplay possibilities. As part of a real time system, time is dynamic in 'Dead Rising', marching on whether Frank is actively engaged or if simply stationary. Time also plays a role as zombies become more powerful when the sun goes down. Though they move slowly during the day, the zombies become stronger and faster at night, making it even more dangerous for players to survive.
The unprecedented numbers of enemies come in never-ending waves and consist of a diverse population of former humans that have retained some memory of their previous lives, which is reflected in their behaviour and appearance. The variety of different stores in the mall offers players an endless supply of resources including vehicles, makeshift weapons and more. Players will also encounter other survivors along the way and by helping them can acquire valuable clues as to what has happened.
