So what are the zombies like? Well, first of all they're slow. But what they lack in speed they make up for in number. It is truly a next-gen quality of Dead Rising to render such a large amount of creatures on-screen and an essential part of its gameplay mechanic. Due to the vastness of the mall, such slow enemies would not pose a threat if there weren't literally hundreds of hungry, rotten undead waiting for the player to make the big mistake of maneuvering himself into a too-crowded place.
Game Description:Dead Rising follows the harrowing tale of Frank West, a freelance photojournalist after the scoop of a lifetime. In a small suburban town that's overrun by zombies, he escapes to the local shopping mall, thinking it will be safe. Now it's a standoff, with zombies unable to get Frank, but him unable to get out and escape. Fortunately, he's got an entire mall at his disposal. Utilize everything you can find to fight off the flesh-hungry mob and search for the truth behind the horrendous epidemic.

For anyone who plays a large number of videogames, there reaches a point where every genre has not only been explored, but each slight variation on it exhausted. When attempting to deride something they don't like, people will often say a variation of the phrase 'If you've played one (for example) first-person shooter (FPS), you've played them all.' While this isn't true, the slightly paraphrased version "If you've played twenty FPSs, you've played them all" actually kinda is.
