Dead Rising User Reviews
Frank West, a freelance photojournalist on the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime, pursues a juicy lead to a small suburban town only to find that it is being overrun by zombies!
He escapes to the local shopping mall thinking it will be a bastion of safety, but it turns out to be anything but. It's a true struggle to survive the endless stream of enemies, but with full reign over an entire shopping center, Frank can utilize anything to fight off the flesh-hungry mob.

Due to the fact that this game takes place almost entirely in a shopping mall, there is a warning on the front box cover of the game that states: This game was not developed, approved or licensed by the owners or creators of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978).
Briefly thought to have been banned in Germany, but was simply refused to be rated. The game still saw release, just unrated.Quotes
Frank West: It's Frank. Frank West. Remember that name 'cause the whole world's gonna know it in three days when I get the scoop.Easter Eggs
The store "Jill's Sandwiches" is a reference to the scene in the original Playstation Resident Evil when Barry says "That was too close, you were almost turned into a Jill Sandwich!" There is a Prestige Points sticker on the sign, so taking a picture of it raises your PP count.
In-game there are various references to the Mega-man series. Frank can wear a full Mega-man outfit and can unlock the 'Mega-blaster'. Also, there is a Mega-man film being advertised outside the movie theatre
