A slight improvement on the first Outbreak game, File#2 has better everything - smoother and sharper graphics, extra items, better enemies (zombie Hyenas!), better weapons... This game is also much harder, too.
As with the first one, the level design is simply great. A zoo full of zombiefied animals, a subway station, an abandoned hospital, and ol' Raccoon City Police Station - yes, it gave you nightmares in 1998, you were scared to death revisiting it in 'Nemesis', now see the RPD building with state of the art graphics and be truly terrified. All four scenarios are unlockable from the start, plus one you need to unlock by completing the other tasks.
The enemies in this game are a lot more horrific. In Outbreak what did we get? Zombies, Lickers, Hunters, a Tyrant - not many new enemies, really. Here we get zombie Lions, Elephants and Hyenas. Remember the horrible Leechman? File#2 has it's own seemingly unstoppable enemy - an axe-wielding psychopath that will stop at nothing to hinder your efforts at revealing the secret. There's also the usual Hunters and Zombies to contend with, watch out too, some Zombies are lightning fast. Mr X even makes an appearance.
This game is far from perfect, and many will see little point in buying it. As little more than an add on, a full-price tag is very steep. This game offers hours of entertainment, and you really will struggle to unlock all the secrets due to the measly point system - this time they're not just giving things away.
If you liked the first one, this might appeal - it's nothing majorly new, but if you couldn't get enough of Outbreak, then this is for you. Might just feed our urges until we get RE4...
