Xbox One launch games reviewed

This morning the first embargoes lifted for Xbox One reviews, giving readers a sense of how the upcoming console's launch line-up might be shaping up.

The titles reviewed are Capcom's Dead Rising 3, Crimson Dragon and Zoo Tycoon. How did they fare? Find out in the links below.

Crimson Dragon

Crimson_dragon_001

"I could forgive all of these missteps, the weird microtransactions, the underwhelming graphics, the off-kilter systems, if, on a very basic level, it was fun. It's not."

Dead Rising 3

Hero

"Dead Rising 3 gets a lot of things right. It presents a massive open world filled with possibilities and features the first truly impressive use of scale in a game based on a zombie outbreak. But the game's difficulty spikes ... and boring, stereotype-laden writing can be difficult to swallow."

Zoo Tycoon

Zootycoon_review_main_2000

"Zoo Tycoon is repetitive and a little glitchy; it's simple and sometimes irritating. It's also a smartly designed simulator, accessible for all. It's charming and sweet."

We'll keep this updated as more reviews and the console review hit, so stay tuned.
