Did You Know?


This is the first Resident Evil main series where if the player character switches equipped weapons, they'll physically swap weapons instead of going into a menu to change a weapon and exit the menu with a newly equipped weapon. Plus, it's the first of the main series where if the player opens the inventory menu, the game's action and time will not pause. Instead, it will run in real time, meaning that enemies will approach the players anytime to attack. 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 »

not really a resident evil game
21 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this isn't a resident evil game in the fact of its not a fight for survival like all the others in every resident evil before this one you had to ration your ammo and watch your heath carfully because if you died you had to start from the last save not the last door you walked through and if fighting a boss if you didn't have the right weopons you had to deal with it not die then equipped your powerful weopons and your not meant to have a partner its supposed to be a journey on your own where you have to watch your own back not them watch it for you and resident evil if always liked the characters but i do not like Sheva this game isn't a resident evil i don't care what they say its got some of the characters Wesker chris and a jill valintine who isn't hot because they changed what made her hot. to sum this game is playble once or twice then traded in.

sorry for any bad spelling
