Dead Rising 4 (Xbox One)

I really enjoyed Dead Rising 3 despite the weird path the game has been on but my first impression of DR4 is not good.

This one seems clunky and lame. 

Like it was intended to be a reboot and someone later decided to tack the project onto the Dead Rising timeline. 

It’s apparently a sequel despite Frank West looks younger, has a new voice actor and is pretty much nothing like himself.

Capcom have done a good job saving Resident Evil but it looks like they’ve lost the wheel with some of the classics. 

Devil May Cry is a mess, Street Fighter have giant heads and giant hands. I’ve got no idea what’s going on.

So now Frank West is a school tutor (for photography?) and one of his students ‘pranks him’ by promising a round of crazy golf, in the middle of the night. 

Then, plot-twist, they’re driving out to Willamette and Frank is triggered.

After having him kill a few hundred of the infected (that she set free) she then develops a heart and ditches him in Willamette with no ride. Cool?

I’d rather have them add another new character or further develop Nick Ramos.
