Dead Rising 4 is the sequel to Dead Rising 3. I’ve had Dead Rising 4 for a while so it’s time for my review. The graphics in this game are good, but they could have been much better in my opinion. The character textures and the environment were very bland in my opinion. I also disliked the art style in this game. The music in this game is quite average, to be honest. The music overall is very forgetful. This game also has numerous bugs and glitches which can make the game less enjoyable. That being said the campaign in this game was very funny and I liked the protagonist in this game. I also liked the removal of the timer. The removal of the timer allowed me to play at my own pace.
There are a variety of weapons in Dead Rising 4 and you’re able to create a lot of weapons. The story was funny, but I didn’t really enjoy the campaign. The lack of campaign co-op is extremely disappointing in my opinion and there is a lack of new ideas in this game. It can also be difficult to save before quitting because restrooms are no longer save points. The gameplay is fun for about an hour. After an hour it get’s very repetitive. This game can also be very easy for some. Personally, I thought this game was too easy. The Christmas setting is very good, in my opinion, but the gameplay and repetitiveness hurt this game.
I liked a lot of changes in Dead Rising 4 like removing the Timer but I think they removed too much. For example, they removed the kill counter and you can no longer throw items. I also dislike the way your health regenerates. This game isn’t a bad game but it’s the weakest Dead Rising game in my opinion. This game should have been much better in my opinion. There are a lot of flaws in this game and overall Dead Rising 4 is an average, disappointing game. If you’re a Dead Rising fan I recommend you wait for a big price drop before you buy this game.
Should you buy it?
No. Wait for a price drop before you buy this game. I don’t recommend you buy this game at full price. This game is the weakest Dead Rising game to date.
Dead Rising 4 is an average game. The game is a disappointment and the lack of campaign co-op is disappointing.
