Rev3Games's review of DR3 seems fair, I think. What do you think?

People gave Tara so much crap for the review. I thought it was fair. The DR franchise has never really been the greatest in the first place. I always found the series mediocre at best. The co-op does make it better though.

Sometimes you have to review a game within the lens it was created. She didn't.

She uses the word "Banal" to describe the plot in the first 2 minutes. It's pretty easy to see that she wasn't going to assign it a score greater than 3 stars right at that moment. The game is pure, crystallized camp.

Dead rising to me is always a series that is going to run in that 75-80 score range. I thought she was a tad low.

Though story isn't something that should matter for DR, she had a point about the humor and the dark tone.

Fair assessment. I just don't think reviewing the story on DR3 is worth it. It's akin to watching a Michael Bay movie and expecting a nuanced assessment of the human condition. You're going to end up disappointed, why bother?

Sometimes you have to enjoy the ride.
