An hour in Dead Rising 3, Xbox One's scariest, silliest horror game

In fairness, at the moment it's the only Xbox One horror least until Evil Within comes along

There are a number of pluses, such as the fact that it looks nice, but there are drawbacks too, or maybe I'm just being picky. Objects you are holding are clever enough to magically pass through other objects like lampposts, the AI is very basic, I mean I know its zombies but they can't think to go around a car rather than over that's in their way.
The sheer number of zombies in the game I played was impressive, beyond that of DR2, but even though there was a fair amount of variety, and if I looked I could see the individual zombies move individually, nothing made me scared of them, which is a shame. The sheer scale of having hundreds of enemies to deal with gets old quickly, use of weapons is a bit clunky depending on which you choose and there's basically no point in mowing down enemies in a vehicle due to the amount of pp it gives you for it.
In all little compels me to pick this up, especially at full price. Not much story to draw me in (obviously I wasn't looking for that in a demo but my perception of the game suggests this), and when zombies are already done so well by Left 4 Dead and offer fantastic multiplayer rather than a limited coop mode, there's little to make me buy.

I think this question needs an answer - what are the review embargoes like on X1 launch games?
Clearly, those of us getting a launch-day X1 are shelling out (probably) £430 for the console and at least two games, which will take us over the £500-mark. It'd be nice to know that we're not getting a couple of duds, that will leave us with no incentive to play on our new, expensive toy...

I agree - I've asked OXM a few times about launch title review embargoes but not got a response yet. Guess I may have to learn how to play FIFA14 only since it's with my pre-order - at least until I read the reviews!
Saying that - BF4 getting good reviews already so will probably pick that up - or AC4
But no way going to risk Ryse of DR3 until I've seen a review
