Pick One: Which Dead Rising Game Is Your Favourite On Xbox?

For this weekend's Pick One feature, we thought we'd bring back our poll about the best Dead Rising game on Xbox, following the news that Capcom will be remastering the original title at some point later in 2024.

When we first ran this "Pick One" all the way back in late 2020, the OG game came out victorious with 37% of the vote, closely followed by Dead Rising 3 in second place. Has the consensus changed in four years? Let's find out!

Oh, and if you want to play any of these, keep in mind that Dead Rising was part of Xbox Games With Gold at one point (so you might have claimed it), while the likes of 3 and 4 are heavily discounted on the Xbox Store this weekend.

Let's take a look at what we're working with - remember, you can only pick one!

Dead Rising (2006)

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 and search for the truth behind the horrendous epidemic.

Dead Rising 2 (2010)

In the sequel to Dead Rising, players step into the shoes of Chuck Greene, professional motorcycle racer. Surrounded by a horde of hungry zombies in the spectacular casino town of Fortune City, Chuck finds himself in a race against time to find Zombrex, the one thing that can keep Katey, his young daughter, alive. Can he protect her and make it out of Fortune City alive?

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (2011)

Photojournalist and original hero of Dead Rising's Willamette incident, Frank West, takes center stage once again in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. The new 'Off the Record' storyline means an all new Dead Rising 2 experience, where Frank faces off against hordes of twisted enemies, builds more outrageous combo weapons, follows his own unique mission structure, and explores brand new areas of Fortune City to get his biggest scoop yet.

Dead Rising 3 (2013)

Anything and everything is a weapon in Dead Rising 3. Explore the zombie-infested city of Los Perdidos, and find a way to escape before a military strike wipes the entire city, and everyone in it, off the map. With intense action and an unmatched level of weapon and character customization, Dead Rising 3 delivers a heart-pounding experience unlike any other as you explore, scavenge and fight to survive in a massive open world on the brink of a zombie apocalypse.

Dead Rising 4 (2016)

Dead Rising 4 marks the return of photojournalist Frank West in an all-new chapter of one of the most popular zombie game franchises of all time. With an unmatched level of weapon and character customization, ambitious new features including new zombie classes and EXO Suits, Dead Rising 4 delivers a heart-pounding experience as players explore, scavenge and fight to survive in an epic open world sandbox.
