First Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop Footage is Kinda “Meh”

The first two Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop videos arrived today — one a trailer and the other straight gameplay footage — and overall they’ve left me underwhelmed. The trailer is good fun, however the gameplay video shows that the Wii version has clearly been gimped in the porting process from the 360. The controls seem like they’ll be better, but with so many fewer zombies the action looks kinda dull. Should still be a zombie-slaying hoot, but I’m a bit disappointed with what I’m seeing thus far.
