In Dead Rising, gamers assume the role of Frank West, a freelance photojournalist constantly searching for the scoop of the century. In pursuit of a surefire lead, he makes his way to a small American town only to find it has been overrun by flesh-eating zombies. Looking for somewhere to hide out, Frank flees to a nearby shopping centre (in a nod to George A. Romero's classic Dawn of the Dead) only to find it anything but safe. If anything, there seems to be more zombies inside the mall than outside.

Dead Rising is set over a three day period and offers gamers the full reign of a realistic shopping centre (or mall, for the benefit of our American friends - Ed). It is up to you to help Frank find out who is behind this deadly epidemic. There are many different stores in the mall that offer players an endless supply of resources, including makeshift weapons, vehicles and much more. If you can pick an object up, you can use it has a weapon - there are over 250 items that will help create mayhem, including circular saws, skateboards, electric guitars and severed arms. It is important to remember that the zombies become more powerful by night. They may move like a snail with a limp throughout the day, but as the sun goes down they become faster and much more dangerous.

There will be encounters with various survivors throughout the game and by helping them, you will glean important clues that will ultimately help Frank solve this horrendous puzzle.
