Frank is infected and wanders the city beaten, bloody and driven only by a need to feast. When a former ally discovers him, he is written off as incurable. Luckily, he’ll find help from an unlikely resource. As Frank begins to recover he’ll need to race to find a permanent cure while developing all-new abilities and strength. Unfortunately, he can no longer eat food to stay alive and must feast on others to survive. As he is trying to save himself, Frank learns that several survivors he cares about are trapped in the city with him and he must rescue them – and himself – before the government closes his case file for good and wipes the city off the map.

So I get to play as a bootleg Frank Wesker in DR4? ... I'm okay with this.

Well that's interesting. Wish it wasn't in one of the most bland games this generation.

Still cannot believe what has happened to this franchise.

It's pretty incredibly every new entry only got worse.

I actually like 2 the best. It kept essentially everything that I did like about 1 but with much better gameplay and the implementation of co-op was well done.

They can reuse the "Frank is back" slogan


Game was ok, got a free snow globe when it was $30 at GameStop and enjoyed what I played
Psychos weren't as good as previous games though
You can easily kill everyone with a combo weapon but still , love the series

I feel the opposite. 2 was incredibly boring to me. Worth noting that I only played the vanilla version.

Like history has shown us with Capcom franchises, they aren't as good when given to a western developer.

Some people here defended the ending saying it wasn't made to lead to DLC, that it was stand alone. I guess this is a paid overtime mode? Good one.

I'm in at $15 or less. PS4, PC, or X1...whichever I can get it on cheapest at when it hits that price point.

There's a line in here about the timer showing back up at the ending of the game, which doesn't happen in the "main" game. Now suddenly, they're releasing a DLC "expansion" to a game that is just overtime mode and has the timer. Huh, I wonder what happened...?

*eyeroll*

Considering how half-baked, buggy, and just flatly unfinished in every way the entire game feels it's plainly obvious they just chopped the ending of the game off and are now selling it as dlc. Really abhorrent shit from capcom, which shouldn't be that surprising given how crappy their DLC policy can be at times.

IIRC, the mad dash up to the roof / bunkering down against hordes in the main game is timed, although it's so generous that it really doesn't matter.

Like, I feel people should be more upset about this considering the context is as abhorrent as it is.

The game ends in literally the exact same way 3 day survivor mode ends in Dead Rising 1. Like, basically as close to shot to shot they could have made it other than the extra fluff scene with the sidekick and DLC dude from DR3. To end in that way and then "oh hey the obvious, intentional followup to the same thing we did in DR1 but included it as part of the base game is now 19.99 extra" in a game built as a (shit as it is) 10 year anniversary celebration of said previous game just has got to be one of the biggest fuck you's to a fanbase I've ever seen. Just transparently shit money wringing in a way I'd expect out of an Upton Sinclair book.

Capcom said it was "firm", but considering they wanted 2 million out of it by the end of this month and the last numbers we had for it was like 850k max and that's with the game getting steep discounts everywhere from like a week after launch I'd think it's safe to say it bombed. It will go down in history as the worst reviewed and as selling the worst of any Dead Rising game.
