WARNING. POSSIBLE SPOILERS CONTAINED IN THE FOLLOWING REVIEW.
And perhaps it ISN'T the best RE title to date. But it's non- canon and the story line is awesome. As a part of The Wolf Pack AKA Delta Team of the U.S.S. you can be either Vector -- Stealth--, Beltway --Demolition--, Lupo --Leader--, Specter -Elec Ex.--, Bertha -- Medic--, or Four Eyes --Scientist--. I recommend either Vector or Bertha they have the coolest moves and are my favorites.
Sure, it's more of a shooter than a survival horror game now, but it's STILL survival. You are fighting not only the usual B.O.W.'s and t/g-carrier... but humans as well. Hell, in RE2 there were no V-ACTs --Crimson Heads-- running around in the streets. Those alone count for survival points. Hunters and other creatures make a return cameo too.
And, come on, it's interesting. For once we get to be on Umbrella's side and see how they perceived things. Normally we're the good guys --Chris, Jill, Leon, Claire, etc.-- except in the mini games like Mercenaries where we can be bad-a**es like HUNK and Ada or Wesker. --Not saying Chris and the other's aren't bad-a**, they're merely more limited because they're good guys.--
My point is this: If you're looking for a game for PS3/Xbox 360 that's a more better graphics and moves version of RE2 you're in the wrong place. But if you want to see how things went on Umbrella's end of the fight and what all could have been going on behind the scenes while we were running through the sewers or streets trying to get out of the city alive, you've come to the right place.
The graphics are good, the characters to choose from are interesting, and you get to cover up Umbrella's dirty little secrets and fix their messes while blowing sh** up and killing as many U.S. Gov. people/infected/B.O.W.s as you can along the way. I'd say that qualifies for a fun few hours.
