Average User Score: 5.0Mar 22, 2012It is likely that you will take the advice of a professional video game critic over that of a gamer. My best advice is to look at what they are saying. Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is a truly rewarding experience that has a few rough edges that i believe are very easy to overcome. lets look at the issues in a list of dot points vs the highlights
1. bad AI............................. Now lets just think for a second..... THIS GAME IS A MULTI-PLAYER GAME. Why should the developers waste there time perfecting the AI when it is more then likely that there will be 4 humans playing. POINTLESS?!?
2. The Story? once again it is a multi-player game. Why would u want a heavy storyline with long cutscenes in a game that would most likely have 4 people sitting there pressing the skip button as quick as they can? 3.The difficulty- i would say the difficulty is equal to that of resident evil 5 times 2. There are just more enemys with guns and it is easy to get overwhelmed , but your not alone anymore. The difficulty is beautiful, there is nothing more rewarding then having 3 friends with you having swarms of zombies running at you, your ammo running out. some one getting infected and having to turn on your team mates and as the number of zombies reach a lower number you start brutally melee killing them all one by one. This is very very satisfying, trust me.
4.No charter development- if they brought six new charters in with bright personality's it would become stupidly confusing and rather annoying quite fast. These charters suit there roles. They are the best of the best, the elites that work by code names and everything is strictly business . I have come to see personality's in the charters depending on who i'm playing with. I have a wise cracking snipper and a sassy medic . This lack of charter development has allowed me to see the people im actually playing with rather then some cliche' personality.
i assume i'm coming cross as rather a fan boy, and let me assure you that is not true. i only joined the resident evil bandwagon at number 4 and i thought number 5 was pretty tacky. there are a few problems wrong with the game but no more then a lot of games that receive great reviews. I am amazed that this game isn't getting fair 8's all round as it is a great game that is really fun and i haven't even mentioned the addicting leveling system. i would ignore the reviews you read from critics and just think about what bothers you. will bad story line bother you while 3 of you are talking over the top of it ? will bad AI effect your gaming when u have 3 humans playing with you, not coms. will the difficulty get too much for you or do u have some balls hahahha.
