Summary: Although the DLC for Dead Rising 3 has been disappointing as a whole, Capcom surprised us all during E3 with the announcement of a new exciting prospect -- the Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α add-on. Simply put, this pack is a massive piece of fanservice, complete with a giant zombie M. Bison boss, outfits ranging from Street Fighter to Darkstalkers , and even little extras like Power Stone billboards.
Excerpt: , but I was never really sold on it. Running around a big world indiscriminately killing everything is certainly fun, but there was always something that felt lacking to me.
Pros: + Zombie killing has never been more fun., + Hundreds of zombies rendered on screen at once is fantastic., + Weapon variations are incredible., + Co-op is an absolute blast., + No in-game loading screens required., + Forgiving combo counter., + Great graphics.
Cons: - Occasional game crashes., - The real-world clock can be obnoxious., - Why can't we free roam once we've beaten the game?, - Lack of frequent auto-saving., - SmartGlass integration doesn't really add much to the experience.
Summary: : Dead Rising 3 packs a surprisingly strong story, tight technically sound visuals and strong aural presentation into a tuned up franchise release that’s arguably the best in the series, and less arguably the best game to come out of the next gen console launch.

Summary: Capcom's latest foray into zombies with Dead Rising 3 is a next-generation game that, while not the kind which will test the limits of the new Xbox One's technology, makes a great starting game for the system. The game's open world environment and enjoyable storyline provide a lot of room for exploration and fun while maintaining a tone that slides between horror and comedy quite well.
Summary: 'Dead Rising' first hit the scene as an early 360 title before going multiplatform, with a multi-version sequel. Capcom went in a another direction from 'Resident Evil' by capturing one of the best aspects of zombie fiction, daunting numbers of zombies in a great sandbox area. With 'Dead Rising 3,' the series return to its exclusive Xbox roots with a grittier look but more zombies than ever before, and this time the sandbox is an entire city.
Extremely violent and gory zombie game for mature players.

Summary: Parents need to know that Dead Rising 3 is a very graphic action game with horror elements (zombies jumping out at you), lots of gore (including disembowelment and decapitation), and plenty of blood. There are sexual references and innuendoes, alcohol consumption, and strong profanity. It is an M-rated game that earns its designation.

Excerpt: Dead Rising was one of the first marquee exclusives for the Xbox 360 platform. Its premise was simple: use anything and everything possible to escape a zombie infested mall in under 72 hours. It delivered an enjoyable, albeit brief and repetitive, experience. That experience has since been expanded on, first in 2010’s Dead Rising 2 and now the Xbox One launch title Dead Rising 3 . That expansion has resulted in a bigger game in terms of both scope and narrative.
