    Umbrella Corps' single player isn't convincing and, what is worse, its multiplayer is confusing and chaotic, mostly because of its clunky mechanics and horrible performance. Also, the lack of content makes it repetitive in the short term.

    It doesn’t feel like it’s finished, and even if it were to be further refined, it would just be a low-budget Gears of War-style shoot-‘em-up. There’s no reason to play it.

    A muddled shooter where a lack of braaains and finesse derail any brief undead thrills. [Sept 2016, p.73]

    Umbrella Corps is a poorly made spin-off and probably the worst game in the Resident Evil franchise. A bunch of interesting idea can't overcome all the technical flaws and the forgettable gameplay created by Capcom.

    Umbrella Corp is a game that should have been scrapped, not released. It may have started with the best intentions, but the end result is a game that relies on tired gameplay and a familiar name. Going back to the drawing board would have been better than what was released now.

    There's little satisfaction in downing an enemy who can't see you, less in getting flattened by an unseen assailant. [Issue#296, p.114]

    Any potential for excitement is squandered by the fact that the zombies you encounter are typically unthreatening.

Its gotten a lot of hate from trailers over bad animations and boring gameplay. I've played for about 30 minutes now and I have a few things to say that are good, and a few things that are bad.

    Pros - Customization is very well done, graphics look good, maps are redone nicely and look great, fast gameplay on the multimission maps makes it seems pretty forgiving when you die to something stupid, lastly the game runs not terribly and I can keep 60fps with an R9 290 and FX 8320 despite it being an Nvidia title.

    Cons - Mouse control is completely terrible and there is no setting to change zoomed aim in the game, you can really tell that the game was made for a controller which ♥♥♥♥ing sucks, the zombies feel like cardboard when you shoot them which also sucks but they arent a main objective in the PVP modes anyways so it wont bother you much, last con I had was that it took me 10 minutes of going into lobbies and being kicked before I finally got in a game.

    All in all I think that they will fix a bunch of the network errors and hopefully a mod or something comes out that can fix the mouse, if these 2 things were fixed I'd say the game is easily worth $30 even as an RE COD its still pretty fun and will keep me entertained for a while.

Su ps4 il framerate è scadente e, a causa di alcune scelte a dir poco bizzarre, è quasi impossibile prendere la mira. Perchè fare un TPS se poi l' inquadratura è perennemente posizionata sulla spalla del giocatore? Il risultato è un ibrido FPS/TPS con una visuale a dir poco ristretta, specie considerando che nella "campagna in singolo" i nemici hanno la tendenza ad attaccare le spalle del giocatore. In assenza di uno specchietto retrovisore (un pulsante per guardarsi le spalle c'è ma lasciamo stare..) è impossibile prevedere certi attacchi: tra l' altro l' energia è ridottissima ed è facile soccombere senza sapere il perché anche dopo pochi secondi.
    Visivamente il gioco si difende a malapena, i modelli poligonali sono belli e dettagliati ma soggetti a compenetrazioni di ogni tipo, e tutto ha un aspetto scialbo e poco rifinito. Le geometrie di alcune location poi non sono state aggiornate e tutto ha l' aspetto spigoloso di una paio di generazioni fa.
    Il gioco online può risultare anche divertente, ma là fuori è pieno di shooter competitivi migliori di questo, per giunta anche meno costosi.
    Non uno sfacelo totale ma quasi: per quanto mi riguarda sono stati 30 euro buttati al vento.

Só sei que a Capcom estava muito mal das ideias para produzir esse game. Essa porcaria - que infelizmente se trata do universo de Resident Evil - consegue ser um dos piores jogos da histórias. Graficos ruins, partidas ultra rápidas, personagens ''bonecões'', são só alguns dos quesitos que fazem de longe ser o pior Resident Evil. Engraçado que perto do Operation Raccoon City, dá pra considerar o ORC até bom. Lamentável CAPCOM. Expand
