In August 2006 Dead Rising was released on the Xbox 360, in Dead Rising you play Frank West an Journalist looking for a big story and when a zombie outbreak in a mall occurs its the chance he's been waiting for but its not until he looks deeper does he realise he's bitten off more then he can chew. It was one of the most popular games to be released that year but it also had some major controversy surrounding it.
Looking at the positives it got nearly perfect scores around the gaming community with IGN giving it 8.3/10, Gamespot giving it 8.4/10 and X-Play giving it 4/5 and the award of Best Original Game of 2006. Looking at the negatives Germany banned the game completely and wouldn't even rate it due to its graphic violence and it also suffered a lawsuit claiming it was to closely based on Dawn of the Dead movie franchise.
With all that in mind its no suprise they already planning for a sequel and according to buzz around the internet its Blue Castle who have been given the duties of making it, they a game studio based out of Vancouver and are mainly known for their baseball games. No real details have been announced yet of when it will be released and where the game will be set but one thing is known for sure if its half as popular as the first one its going to be a best seller!
