Can I play this having never played the first two games?

Also, where does that DR2 spin off fall within the story? Is that one necessary too?

I played Dead Rising one and the prologue to DR2.
Never played DR2 or the Frank West spin off.

I am loving DR3. And I probably would too if I never played Dead Rising at all.

So I say yes....yes you can.

I've never played either of the two previous titles.

I am thoroughly enjoying the zombie destruction madness offered by this game. I'm sure there's small story details I'm not picking up on, but I can still enjoy it.

It's not necessary to play the previous games which I think was a smart move. There's even a museum in the game that tells you about the history of the entire outbreak so you won't be in the dark.

It would be hard to go back and play the first two games after playing DR3. The games were great but this one is superior in every way (Except for the main protagonist since most DR vets prefer Frank West and/or Chuck Green)

I personally never enjoyed DR 1&2 and only got DR3 to play with my brother and have just had a blast with this game co op and solo. Would recommend this game to anyone and everyone, go buy it!

I played the demo for one and didnt care for it nor did i see the hype in the series.

Never played any of the retail releases of the series.

Love DR3, one of my favorite games ive played in the past few years.

The plot twist won't make sense to you unless you played DR2.
Dead Rising 3 delivers for those who played all previous titles.
