CAP­COM’S FOURTH EN­TRY in the Dead Ris­ing se­ries is quite the cel­e­bra­tion. It’s not only set at Christ­mas, it also adds some much-needed sparkle to the fa­mil­iar game­play. Tak­ing you through events oc­cur­ring some 16 years af­ter the orig­i­nal game, zom­bie apoc­a­lypse 2.0 brings you the walk­ing dead in their thou­sands. The sto­ry­line is solidly en­ter­tain­ing through­out, but it’s the chaotic play­ground of zom­bie slay­ing that will keep a grin plastered to your face. Weapon craft­ing is cranked up a notch to max­i­mum bonkers, with some wel­come fes­tive fun in­cor­po­rated, too. Plus the va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent zom­bies keeps things feel­ing fresh. Hi­lar­i­ous, cre­ative and sat­is­fy­ingly bloody.
