Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
good but lacking
Dont get me wrong by my low score, its a great game.Its just that this game wasnt entirely planned out it seems. The story and plot panned out well as well as the game play,but the problem I really had with it was the lenght of game. I think I finished this game in a matter of 3 hours. That gave NO time to really obtain the upgrades that you have avalible.If the game had been extended this one would have been heroic. Instead it kind of belly flopped. Thanks for reading.
A Big Let Down, Don't Buy
I'm a hardcore resident evil fan and I had a hard time getting into it, by the third mission I was bored with the off story line, the gameplay is awkward, you are in this weird side over the shoulder third person view like in gears of war, and shooting is weird, to shoot your pistol you have to press LB and you can only shoot left, right, forward, and backwards, and you already have your aiming cursor on the screen you don't have to hold up your gun to aim like in all the rest of the RE games. The graphics were ok but that doesn't make up for the terrible gameplay. Don't buy this game you will regret it.
the game is short but the classes are fun each in a way to destroy the b.o.w s the guns are all different and the skills are to i recommend for hardcore resident evil fans :D
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a game that returns to the roots of RE by bringing us back to the days of RE and zombies in Raccoon city. The game takes place between Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. I found that the gameplay could get annoying sometimes because the targeting reticle would sometimes lag about the screen and increase my chances to miss a shot. The story is somewhat short as it takes about 20-40 minutes per mission (there are only seven missions) But that is where the Echo Expansion Pack DLC's come in to play. These add seven new mission that offer a new perspective about the game as you are now controlling the Spec-Ops characters instead of the U.S.S characters. The multiplayer is where this game really evolves as you can take part in several modes that make this game a whole new experience as you're pit against other human players, but the zombies, hunters, lickers, zombie dogs ,etc are really what make multiplayer shine. Overall this game is fun and the game really isn't that hard but sometimes a glitch here and there can add frustration to an overall decent experience. But with that being said, Re:ORC is still a great game and should be checked out.
The game actually was delayed in production. They had to destroy and rebuild it. Apparently Slant Six screwed it up. Even though it wasn't what I expected, (as the trailers showed) it still rocked. It had a lot of criticism since the game is a spin-off. I still enjoyed it even after dealing with one employee who kept trying to get me to put down the copy. I ignored him and bought it. The ranking system is nice, the mp was fun, the campaign had a twist to it, the characters' bios were amazing, and I enjoyed the dialogue. I haven't turned the game in since.
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.
