Did You Know?

Trivia

Unlike any other Resident Evil so far, most of the files you collect are profiles of each character and enemy ever appeared in the Resident Evil series leading up to the end of Umbrella. See more »

Goofs

In-game files as well as Resident Evil related material state that the Tyrant T-103 was created after Umbrella recovered the research data from the original fight against the Tyrant in Resident Evil. Among the Tyrant T-103 specimens is IVAN, Sergei's bodyguard. The problem is that IVAN appears and fights Wesker in-between the events of Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil which was about one day earlier than Jill or Chris fought the original Tyrant meaning IVAN would not be created for about two months as the necessary data to do so had not yet been collected.

Quotes

Sergei Vladimir: Comrade Wesker. Welcome to my humble abode.
Albert Wesker: I see you are still resolved to go down with the ship, Coloneal.
Sergei Vladimir: Umbrella's not going anywhere. All of the pain... the punishment and the difficulties help to make Umbrella stronger! It's a shame you couldn't understand.
Albert Wesker: [clicks gun] Stand aside.
Sergei Vladimir: Oh, I almost forgot. Here are a few of my old friends I would like to introduce you to.
[Orange Ivan enters from the door behind him]
Albert Wesker: Charmed.

Amazing Game, If You Know What You're Buying
24 February 2008 | by the_legend_of_zelda_ootSee all my reviews

This game was never meant to be one of the main games in the series. However, it does have a lot of information pertaining to it, and as such fans should buy it. The game is done as an on-rails shooter, it may not seem appealing at first, but this game is the first Resident Evil game thats pick-up and play. The story inside the game is contradictory to the true events of the series, but in the extra notes you find, it explains things clearly. Sure, the game is only a shooter, but it succeeds at what it is, and was never advertised to be something more.

This game to play is much more fun than Resident Evil 4, and with the files collected in it, tell a much better, more solid story than Resident Evil 4, though neither games involve much thought to play. If you're a Resident Evil fan, and like the classics, buy it, you won't be sorry, but if you're simply one from the masses of Resident Evil 4 players, who think they know something about the series, don't buy it.
