Longtime fans of Dead Rising have been less than impressed by part three thus far, to put it mildly. Unfortunately, the just released cinematic, CGI trailer is not going to help its case all that much.
Among other things, it remains virtually devoid of any color or personality; Dead Rising continues to largely resemble all the other zombie murder simulators out there, which is the primary issue.
Much of the whimsy is also still absent, replaced with a whole lot of unnecessary swearing. And Frank West is still nowhere to be found. Sorry folks, but at this point, it's just not happening:
Though on the plus side, the whole "make your weapon" deal, which was introduced in part 2, likes just as fun as ever. And the very end of the clip does honestly feel like legit Dead Rising. It's unfortunate that everything else, on the other hand, simply… does not.
Thus the hope for Dead Rising 3: Off The Record, starring Frank West, for the PlayStation 4, remains as strong as ever.
