Doesn't work on the PC poor game-play but a bit of fun
15 November 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Why the hell Sheva is constantly blocking you as you shoot or shoots you while trying to shoot the enemy is beyond me. The Sheva character is always getting in your way. Having played the RE3 demo (years ago and enjoyed it) there was an expectation of something good here but unfortunately thats not the case. Try and reload on the run, no you have to stop and reload and in the meantime get mutilated by a zombie. Try looking down low or up high, no not unless you have your weapon zoomed. Sometimes you swing around very fast other times at a snails pace despite constantly changing the mouse sensitivity. There is nothing new here either, bits borrowed from Tomb raider, Half-life and any other PC game. Most of the time it feels like you are playing a kids play station shoot em up. I,m over 50! yes over 50 years old and love my games. But when something like this comes along full of expectations well, $90.00 certainly seems like a waste of money. The whole shooting, reloading and Inventory system is totally crap-worthy. How are you expected to stop while being attacked, open your inventory and decide which weapon to use? Textures are bland and environments non inspiring. Hardly a redeeming feature really. Even the science talk could have been far more... well scientific. Example: When Chris and Sheva reach the underground he says something like, "These flowers are everywhere, must be for experimentation" Shouldn't he be saying these plants? Every turn there was something amateurish to marvel at. When you stand still she stares at his chest as if his pecs are of utmost interest and how the hell do you use a herb when you are very sick? seems you have to wait for Sheva to help you out. One can tell quality from crap for instance Fallout 3, man was that a well made game or what! You simply cannot put the two games in the same basket. Fallout 3 9.5/10. And yes that was third person as well. This chunk of S**t 3/10 and thats being generous.
