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


"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


"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


"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.
