    Umbrella Corps’ metascore suggests that it’s one of the worst games of this generation, but if you look past its low budget and bugs, you’ll see a fresh, unconventional shooter brimming with brilliant small innovations. [09/2016, p.52]

    Every level is very small, and no matter where you decide to hole up, it will be easy for enemies to flank you. It’s not bad by itself, but such design makes cover system – which was to become one of Umbrella Corps’ trump cards – redundant. So it comes as no surprise that combat quickly devolves into chasing after one another with one-hit-kill ax in hand. Of course, it’s hard to talk about tactics or teamplay in this lumberjack’s paradise. [Issue#211, p.56]

    That being said though, this is not a fantastic game by any account and while there’s a little fun to be had in a frantic online match, there are much better ways to get your competitive shooter fix.

    Umbrella Corps is a big game from a major publisher in a popular franchise in that franchise’s anniversary year, and it’s both awful and dead on arrival. Now I see why Capcom didn’t tell anyone that it came out.

    Umbrella Corps is a multiplayer action with zero value. The game is flawed with all sorts of issues, including dysfunctional matchmaking, small number of players, poor visuals and tragic AI of zombies. Hands off.

    Umbrella Corps is the most expensive free-to-play that you will find in the market. Not only is its gameplay terrible, but its online mode does not feature anybody to play with, so the game is almost dead by now. Capcom made us cry.

    Umbrella Corps has a few interesting ideas up its sleeve, but that’s all it has. Whenever it attempts to put those ideas into practice, they’re shoddily executed and laughably inept for a tactical shooter that rewards almost no tactics whatsoever.

However, with that said, I did and will continue to enjoy playing this game. From my first hour I can tell that this game does feel more like a free to play game than a retail game. Amazingly enough though, The game feels balanced with how you can properly strategize to win a round.

    I'd recomend it if you want to play an arcade style shooter with zombies for extra challenge. However, try to get it on a sale if you can. The cost seems a bit high for the content. (They might add more content down the road)

Fun little tactical shooter, quick matches. Mouse Aiming right now is iffy but it works fine on a controller. You can get used to the Mouse controls by just turning up your mouse sensitivity. Might not be perfect but it helps if you don't happen to have a controller.

    Only 2 competative game modes right now, 1 life per round team elimination and an objective mode where the objective changes every round. There are zombies/plagas infected B.O.W.s on all the maps and they can kill you very quickly, especially the dogs. It adds something else to worry about other than the enemy team some times.

    It's fun, looks nice enough for me and its getting free DLC. Unlike many of the negative reviews, I have had no crashing or problems of that sort at all. You may also want to take into account how much of a Capcom/RE "fan" the reviewer is, since the more they proclaim to love RE the more they problably hate this game or Capcom in general.

    If you are looking for a quick to pick up 3 v 3 tactical shooter with Resident Evil flair this is the game 4 u gamerz.

The controls do feel a little wonky with a k+m but i'm sure it will be fixed since it seems like the same issue that Revelations had on launch. A controller is heavily recommended, even on the store page. Personally, I would stay out of the forums for a little while until alot of the anger subsides in it. If you plan on getting matched and matched quickly at the moment of writing, i suggest going into ranked. Expand

    Umbrella Corps debía coger lo mejor de MERCENARIOS (modo aparecido en RE4 5 y 6) y mejorarlo... Sin émbargo no a sido asi.

    Empezando por lo elemental: El juego es basicamente online (equipos de 3 contra 3) y en STEAM con suerte al crear una sala conseguiras coincidir con 1 jugador mas... ¡5 mas imposible!)

    Por lo tanto ya solo por eso no puedes ni empezar a jugar...

    Hay un modo offline llamado "experimento" varias fases donde completar varios objetivos: conseguir muestras de virus. Recuperar unos maletines o proteger una posición. Sin embargo este modo no te permite desbloquear nada en el juego. Solo es posible desbloquear desde las partidas online...

    El juego falla en los detalles...

    ...la implementación de los golpes por cuchillo por ejemplo son iguales a recibir la onda expansiva de una granada...

    ...la velocidad es exagerada para un RE. Y lo mismo da que vayas corriendo que arrastrandote...

    En fin un juego que deberian rehacer de nuevo casi de 0.

    Watch out! Scores 10/10 from guys who rate 3 games: Umbrella corps on 2 systems and Mighty no 9. All 3 games with score 10/10. So this gameWatch out! Scores 10/10 from guys who rate 3 games: Umbrella corps on 2 systems and Mighty no 9. All 3 games with score 10/10. So this game would have even lower User Score - something like 1.2/10 :P
    Seriously capcom - this is ridiculous. You think users of the Metacritics are this stupid? Besides - why moderators from Metacritic dont ban this IP and delete this posts? Shame... This site is so popular, we really need new site like this runned by people who really cares about their users!!!

    BTW - about the game - Its just like I wrote in Downwell review - why bother with AAA games like Umbrella Corps when You can have tons of fun with a game with asking price of 5$?

    Why would you give it a 10/10 when you only 'quite enjoyed this' and think it's 'by no means a perfect game'? Nice try Capcom employees, nice try! ;)

    The game is btw in fact the worst ¤¤¤"%&!ing game I have ever played in my poor !#& life.
