The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Dead Rising 3 is a very graphic action game with horror elements (zombies jumping out at you), lots of gore (including disembowelment and decapitation), and plenty of blood. There are sexual references and innuendoes, alcohol consumption, and strong profanity. It is an M-rated game that earns its designation.
