Brilliant zombie mash-up Dead Rising will lurch onto Xbox Live's Games on Demand service on 26th January.

Like other GOD titles, Dead Rising will cost 20 quid.

Released in 2006, Dead Rising was one of the first good Xbox 360 games. You play Frank West, a photographer and journalist that explores a town he later discovers is overrun with zombies. Luckily for West he turns out to be brilliant at killing them via any prop at hand, including lawnmowers, footballs and park benches.

A sequel's planned for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox in the second quarter of 2010. You can find out more about that on the Dead Rising 2 gamepage.

Meanwhile, head over to our Dead Rising review for a trip down memory lane.

Xbox Live's Games on Demand also added Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 today. Our GRAW2 review will brief you.
