Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
really good game. i played R.E5 and liked thi one more. The only flaw i have on this game is that it is not split creen but other then that its perfect.
Simply Put, This is The WORST Game of the Year
First of all, I wouldn't even bother listening to reviews saying this game is good, because it's not. It barely has any redeeming qualities at all.
The single player is atrocious. Raccoon City is working on a busted cover system that will get you killed often, stupid enemy AI, ineffective guns that require a lot of bullets to put a target down, lack of ammo, bad camera, clunky controls, unfair difficulty, and broken gameplay components. The one good thing is the story, which if you're a Resident Evil fan, you'll like.
Multiplayer isn't fun, and the balance between weapons needs to be worked on because some guns are way overpowered while others are way underpowered.
It was aiming to be like Left 4 Dead, but Operation Raccoon City instead became garbage.
Sorry, another bad review
The first prieviews I saw, convinced me enough that it would be a really good game, but to my dismay the game was not really appealing. Starting off with the story being a What If scenario that takes place in Resident Evil 2, but instead of playing as leon or claire this time, you play as a bunch of lowly Umbrella dogs that get used like toilet paper and tossed into the toilet of ungodly horror. As much of a fan I was of 2, this was just too broken up to really enjoy between the seven missions that you play. It was an interesting concept, just not utilized as well as it should of.
On to gameplay. In my opinion, its fairly decent, moving your character about and taking care of the undead, b.o.w's, and idiot soldiers that get in your path, but the loadout weapon/ablity concept was generic and uninspiring. I really missed the layout of actually being able to upgrade the weapons attributes like how re4 and 5 was.
The sounds on the other hand were great, I just hate hearing my allies complain that they are plagued with the virus, or they are about to die. Sometimes I got tired of it to the point that I just kill them on the spot.
The graphics are decent, but not really captivating in todays game industries, but enough to get by.
Lasting appeal, I gave a 5 instead of a 2, because I havent played the online portion and thought it would be unfair to destroy the rep of a game just through sp playthrough. Other than that the campain is cheese and extremly easy even on the hardest difficulty, but you'll still get angry about goofy things like allies turning on you at the last second, or b.o.ws mauling you to death, ect.
Overall, its okay, but impossible to recommend to everyone, except for the few out there that already enjoy it.
Not Really Resident Evil
If you go in expecting a creepy atmosphere or any of the elements from the previous games you're going to hate this game cause that's just not what this is. Think of it more like playing through the resident evil movies. But if you just wanted to shoot at some zombies and other classic resident evil monsters with a friend or by yourself then you'll probably enjoy this just fine. (So long as you didn't get it for more than half the original price, then you might hate it.)
better then i thought.
this resident evil game is way different then the others,but very good too.i never thought i was going to like this one because of the bad reviews and only a 6.0 rating.overall,great game.
Good for co-op
This is not a survival/horror game like the original RE game. RE ORC is a fun generic 3rd person shooter that has a combination of zombies and soldiers as the enemy. Having zombies/lickers/hunters just helps in setting the atmosphere of RE game. It is best to play in co-op, there is still an active community, as the A.I partners are useless. Each mission is just from getting to point A to Point B which to me makes it feel like Left 4 Dead. The guns and each characters abilities can be upgraded. Also, it does have team deathmatch that is 4v4 plus it has zombies/lickers/hunter/tyrants that will attack you. I think to win the team has to have 4,000 points that can come from killing the other team or zombies. If you ever wanted to play a modern shooter with zombies than this is the game. Co-op, multiplayer, upgrades, decent controls, active community is what you will get from this game.
This game isn't worth your time. I bought it when it was $60! A couple months and its already $20. That says almost all you need to know. It lacks the real RE game aspect of survival. You have incredible amounts of ammo and its all you vs other people. Zombies are just there to be there. Its pretty much MW3 with worse guns and no quick kills.
Not The Best
This game Could have been so much more than lackluster Game play and Somewhat Interesting Story All the weapons felt the same, teammates would glitch out under fire Aiming was not so great
A fun game that could use a few improvements...
A nice spin off of RE with some nice visuals and a fun story. The gameplay mechanics are simple and similar to Gears Of War (which isn't a bad thing) and the games setting and cameos from several characters will have fans giddy with joy. The problem isn't with the games story of even how the characters handle though, instead it's the games AI. The slow and bumbling AI feels like an after thought and though it can be remedied by playing online, local co-op would have also been nice. The game boast some decent multi-player modes such as Team Battle and Heroes but nothing that hasn't been seen before . Overall the game is worth getting and is enjoyable to go back into the games history.
I will never listen to my friends ever again!!! The game was terrible all you do in the game is shoot zombies nothing else. In my opinion Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 are 1000 times better. If you want to play a zombie game play Left 4 Dead 1 or 2. The gameplay is just terrible there's too much recoil and when you shoot a zombie or a soldier in the head they don' die that means this game is super unrealistic cause if I shoot you in the brain you die automatically but in this game you don't. This game is terrible!!! Good thing I traded it in.
