A 10 means God himself would enjoy the game and a 0 means you tried to play it and your gaming system melted just by putting in the disc.
So, as a Ghostbuster fan from the watching it in the theaters in the 80's I thought this game had better be good. I played other GB games and I wasn't impressed. I really loved this game. I felt part of the movie. This game plays out a good story with good graphics, pretty simple controls and lots of good fun. Great game!… Expand

My son and I play on different systems and try to top each other on the gear we get. I truly enjoy the levels, killing the enemy with a myriad of weapons and collecting different kinds of armor. I both love and hate this game at the same time. Some levels get serious hard before you are able to level up. That means repeating other missions until you get all the required exp to level up. The game can be infuriating at times when it disconnects from the server right when you defeat a crucial level ending enemy. I have the first 2 expansions and now they are going to release another. I am getting seriously annoyed at continually pumping money into this game.
All that and I still play this game. I love playing with other people online. It IS fun to play.… Expand

Luckily, I got this on the PS3 and using a controller made life "simpler". I was gradually getting bored with the typical lay out of the game. I was excited to play the anniversary TR as I played the original one back in the 90's, but wasn't exactly excited with the others. Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate them and I still play them occasionally. THIS TR game was thrilling. I spent hours trying to get everything the game offered. I had moment of feeling like I was actually in the game. There was so much action, I was actually sweating. I love this game and I am definitely unhappy the sequel will only be on the XBOX. This game is a breathe of fresh air. The story is gritty and dark, but so good! The graphics were great. The controls were great. I do have to say the some missions were more difficult as there wasn't enough information available to know what to do. Then again. I was playing that mission at 3:30 AM.
I really didn't like the supporting characters though. It seemed like they were more in the way than anything else.
I recommend this game for TR fans that might have gotten bored, but still loved the franchise.… Expand

The gameI rated this at a 2, to be nice. I bought it, tried and had regret after I played it. I really tried to give this a good try. The game mechanics were just annoying. The story reminded me of a cross between Doom and Quake 4. Both good games, but this game missed the mark for me. I am glad others enjoyed it, but this is one game I will never miss. Everyone says it's scary....I just wonder how. I hate writing negative reviews, it just feels wrong.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.9Oct 7, 2012There is lot's of negative reviews here. This game is NOT meant to follow mainstream resident evil. You are Umbrella for God's sake in thisThere is lot's of negative reviews here. This game is NOT meant to follow mainstream resident evil. You are Umbrella for God's sake in this game. You are basically the bad guy. What more fun is there than that? I love this game and bought it in spite of the reviews. I play every game with an open mind and had lots of fun playing this. Good graphics, pretty decent controls, and a so-so inventory system. I just wish I could kill more people like Chris Redfield, Jill, and the others. Killing Leon was pretty fun though (he is my favorite RE character). I enjoyed this game very much. Some of the newer creatures were very creepy. Have an open mind when playing games. This one is a keeper.… Expand

Completely creeped out,I have played all the resident evil games. I remember playing the original on the PS1 at midnight with the lights off. Completely creeped out, but I played them again recently and hate the slow buggy controls and the fixed scenes. It worked back then, but this tactic simply doesn't work anymore. Games must evolve as does everything. If Resident Evil was played the exact way it originally was programmed today, it would flop. A remake made the same way...same result. It's ok to look back in the day and appreciate all those awesome games. They were groundbreaking back then, but again, things must evolve. I have to disagree with the critics and their 0-6 points. This game has great graphics, sharp controls, and lots of extras (storylines, characters, modifications and all around fun) a creepy mood, it's dark and filled with monsters. I find no better joy than blowing holes through zombies with my sidearm, shotgun, rifle or whatever other item in my inventory. I won't hate on people scoring this game below a 7. we are all entitled to feel how we do about games and our experience with them. Yes, it isn't the same and no, it is really scary. Is there action? Heck yes! I have played through the first 2 scenarios and working on Jake's now. I have been impressed the whole way while playing this. I love hearing how a game is not realistic, but it's a game....what realism are you looking for? It's a game, if it looks good, the story is good, it's easy to control and it's fun, why pick something apart so much that you end up hating it? An honest review: Pro's: There's enough action and opportunity to kill zombies to keep you wanting more. The controls are crisp and easy to use. The graphics are great and the damage realism is really solid. I like the addition of other players joining your cause and making it even more fun. You can play this game for 6 hours straight and still want more. Your spouse might disown you and you might end up in the dog house, but I say it's worth it (I speak from the dog house as I type this).
Cons: it can be frustrating as sometimes it seems you are just doing the same thing over and over. Although I enjoyed some of the new monsters, I think some of the old magic was missing with the monster types. The classics such as the Tyrants, lickers, and some of the other baddies are just sorely missed. A little more creativity in the settings could have earned this a perfect 10, but what is ever perfect?… Expand
