    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. There will be people here who complain about the controls and difficulty, which is to be expected given how 'awkwardly' the old RE titles handle. With that said, the controls don't take long to learn and to dismiss the game based on how it controls is an injustice to what is still a great game at core. This is arguably the apex of the old survival horror format, and in itself is a piece of gaming history. It might not have the immediate gratification of most 'pick up and play' games of this preteen CoD camper era, but if you take the time to absorb the atmosphere and setting, and pick up the nuances of the game then the rewards will be manifold.
