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

Lowest price: $17.00 via Amazon.com Marketplace

Pros

  • Return of West and camera blend with origional
  • Priced at $40
  • Additions and tweaks lightly expand the experience
  • Sandbox mode finally delivers freeform alternative

Cons

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