    Frank West's attempt to reclaim his series deserves to be on the franchise record, though it treads a lot of familiar ground.

    Pros

    • Sandbox mode finally delivers freeform alternative
    • Additions and tweaks lightly expand the experience
    • Priced at $40

    Cons

    • An inessential play for fans burnt out by series
    • Core game is very similar to Dead Rising 2
    • Still clunky in parts (including co-op)
    • Does no favors for the franchise chronology
