How does this hold up today?

I was thinking about buying this game. How is it?

The game is fun and rewarding in my opinion, but it has a bit of an acquired taste. It starts off rather difficult, giving you both little instruction and little ability to handle a seemingly overwhelming amount of tasks, but the longer you play the better it becomes. The game emphasizes multiple playthroughs, a gameplay structure that might take some getting used to, but once you do then you can really start enjoying it.

If you're prepared to give it a fair shake then I definitely recommend it, but if you're liable to give up after a bit of frustration then you may want to pass. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.

It still holds it own with todays games. I've seen games released in the past year which are far worse than Dead Rising in terms of Graphics and Gameplay. As mentioned it does have a steep learning curve though and will take a while to grasp but if your willing to stick at it, it is a really fun game.

Still one of the best games on the 360. I've played through this so many times.

Yeah, it's one of the few games I actually enjoy playing through it over and over.

How many playthroughs are required for 1k? And how long will it take?

I remember getting this on release, and now looking back years later it is still one of the greatest games on 360.
