Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition is a beefy port of a great Xbox One game and its decent post-release content.
- Metacritic
This is what makes Dead Rising special. Every weapon feels different, whether you're carving through the hordes with a chainsaw, lopping heads off with a broadsword, or mowing them down with a minigun. The sheer number of ways to massacre and toy with the zombies is impressive, and it always feels great thanks to the tactile, weighty combat.

What experts didn't like
Plot is more of a protracted errand through drab, gray streets that are a chore to navigate and psychopath boss battles wed frustrating mechanics to backwards stereotypes.
- GameSpot

Even if you play Dead Rising 3 together, it still quickly becomes stale and boring. New gadgets and weapons differ mostly by animation, while zombies are just an annoying obstacle on your road to the next waypoint.
