does anyone have some good tips on playing Dead rising cause i have a freind here and he is a bit of a nOOb at it.
Eh, you're in the wrong forum for this. However, use some sort of long pole to beat the zombies. That way you can keep your health and not get to destroyed by the zombies.
im in the wrong forum for this? well where do i post this then?

theres a SMG i belive in one of the palm trees. u do have to vault off of one of the zombies.
id suggest finding the garadge and drive around with the cars...or kill the guys on the car with the gun, that way it wont get destroyed as fast....plus u can use the big arse gun at the back=p
No, don't use the SMG or Pistol. They're useless. If you pick up a shotgun, however, give it to someone you're escorting. It's way more effective there.
You'll mainly want to use melee weapons. Effective weapons include:
- Adam's mini chainsaw
- Lead Pipe
- Sean's Sword
- Battle Axe
- Meat Cleaver
- Machine Gun
And others that I can't really remember.
As for general playing tips, well, it's pretty easy. Always be on the move, never leave your survivors behind, and make sure to reserve enough time for yourself to get to scoops. Finally, if you're having trouble escorting large groups of people, use waypoints (left trigger + Y I think). The survivors will be more defensive and ready to fend off zombies at waypoints.
Also, make sure that you check out what some of the books have to offer. You can fortify/reinforce a lot of sweet weapons if you pick up the right books. ;)
Well... the main thing is that it's best if you know your way around the mall .If you know some of the locations such as the antiques shop with battle axes and katanas in Entrance Plaza...or the uzi in the Fountain in Al Fresca- it helps rather alot. Also remember that it's handy to have some food stored somewhere in your inventory when travelling around.(Bottle of wine in food court or supermarket is very good for healing.)
Also...obviously manage your time well (rather important in this game).
