  1. The single player is worth playing just as much as the online is. They both are lots of fun and at times the game can seem very chaotic but exciting all at the same time.
  2. Assessed solely on the single-player mode this game is a sizey, different and diverse lump of still-classic Resi gaming. Add online and add 5% to that score. [JPN Import; PSM2]

    Outbreak maintains the lavish horror atmosphere that we've all come to expect and is definitely worth a look, if nothing else, just so see what could be shambling towards us in the near future.
  4. Beyond the online component, Outbreak essentially plays like any other Resident Evil, only with a lesser story, better (though still imperfect) controls, and improved voice acting.
  5. Computer Games Magazine

    There is no good way to communicate with other players, making cooperative play that much more difficult. [July 2004, p.6]
  6. The graphics and score are outstanding, but ultimately, the gameplay falls flat with heavy-handed mechanics and tedious goals.
  7. Should never have been released in Europe. By removing the co-operative aspect of the game, they've infected the game with a particularly virulent strain of the T-Virus. It shambles purposelessly for your attention, mindless of its origins. Totally dead on arrival.

The CGI graphics are amazing, almost PS3 quality. The puzzles are challenging (yay no more puzzles for 2 year olds), the guns have realistic power and you can use melee weapons like the iron pipe. The new virus gauge keeps you on your toes as well. Ok the AI characters will not stop talking, but other than that, the game is brilliant! Expand

    Resident Evil Outbreak was really well made and I call it the Left 4 Dead of Resident Evil Games. This game could've been better if it wasResident Evil Outbreak was really well made and I call it the Left 4 Dead of Resident Evil Games. This game could've been better if it was released during the online age and had all of its content complete.

    You play Outbreak online now with new private servers I'm sure you'll love this game because I can't stop myself from playing it.
    You play it offline and sadly that feeling isn't the same and it's not as good. It feels rushed offline. However now that I played it properly I can definitely say this game is awesome. From the characters to the stages to the soundtrack.

    Задумка capcom сделать resident evil онлайн в кооперативе, с элементами выживания и командной работой, была офигенной. Только они ее забросилиЗадумка capcom сделать resident evil онлайн в кооперативе, с элементами выживания и командной работой, была офигенной. Только они ее забросили и отключили сервера, в данный момент можно только поиграть на эмуляторе или ps 2 версией диска ntsc (Северная Америка), на не официальном сервере. Очень жалко, что они забросили поддержку этого интересного проекта, а вместо этого делают дебильные режимы re resistance и re reverse. Expand

    The only scary thing about this game is how bad it is. The puzzles are frustrating, the multiplayer is impossible. I did jump out of my seat The only scary thing about this game is how bad it is. The puzzles are frustrating, the multiplayer is impossible. I did jump out of my seat once, but that was to turn off this wretched, horrendous excuse for a videogame. Expand
