Did You Know?


The large monster in "Lost In Nightmare" scenario that has reappears bears a resemblance to the mutated version of Steve Burnside from Resident Evil CODE: Veronica and fights similarly to an Executioner Majini hence its axe swing. See more »


Chris and Sheva were never given the orders to retreat, what actually happen is that they decided to flee but changed there mind once Chris decided to locate Jill. Yet, all the characters act as if they got those orders to do it. This means that either Capcom overlooked this mistake or cut out a section of the game that explains this. See more »


Albert Wesker: I don't need anyone else. I have Uroboros! In less than five minutes we'll reach the optimal altitude for missile deployment. Uroboros will be released into the atmosphere ensuring complete global saturation.

The gorgeous gore of Resident Evil
16 November 2014 | by (good review) – See all my reviews

Now let's talk about a game that was hated by most people, but I actually liked it.

In my own opinion this game to me was a lot of fun and pretty funny at times with the AI. The graphs in the game were top notch, and it also had that gritty and dirty look to it that makes the game more effective with the zombies or monster taking over Africa.

My only problems with the game is actually a character that did me head in and annoyed me so much and that is Sheva Alomar, the most annoying and useless character in Resident Evil series. Every second she wasters her ammo and she doesn't even hit the zombies, and let's not forget why got so great female character's in the other Resident Evil series but this one is useless.
