Poor Dead Rising. The series began as an Xbox 360 exclusive that had the temerity to talk about Ugly American consumerism whilst offering an endless array of zombies to mush. Lead characters were crass and flabby, the main plot moving on how extreme bovine farming had inadvertently triggered an undead epidemic in Central America. As far as video games go, it was a pretty subversive move on Capcom's part to specifically create a game only available on an American console that so aggressively criticised the nation. With that in mind, it's a shame to see this latest attempt at selling Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3. Strap yourself in for four witless minutes of prank reality designed to get teenage Dew guzzlers salivating.
