    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.

    Oh, boy, looks like I'm talking about a Resident Evil game-OH, wait! This is Umbrella Corps! Of course! So, this game came out not too longOh, boy, looks like I'm talking about a Resident Evil game-OH, wait! This is Umbrella Corps! Of course! So, this game came out not too long ago, I've had chance to play it on both PS4 and PC and is it bad? Well, yes. And no, let me explain. As a long time Resi fan, I have grown to love this series, I've played the original and loved it, I played Resident Evil 4 and loved it and I played Resident Evil 6 and hated it! So, considering I love the Resident Evil games to death, I might be a bit biased in saying it's bad because it's different. But it's not all that bad! I enjoy these kind of multiplayer shooter games from time-to-time, but personally the third-person does kind of bother me, which is why I love the addition of being able to switch to first-person.The game just puts you into small battle zones with Resident Evil themes to them. There is a sort of single-player mode for people like me who like to play alone called 'The Experiment' which is sort of a horde mode across 20 stages, honestly, it's pretty fun and had a good time playing it. I don't know why people don't like this game but at the same time I can kind of see it too. From me, this game earns a solid 7, it's not bad and I really think you should give it a try if this is your kind of thing. For long time Resi fans, still take a look, you might enjoy it. Expand

    Capcom has made plenty of great "Resident Evil" games. Unfortunately, "Umbrella Corps" isn't one of them. This competitive shooter isCapcom has made plenty of great "Resident Evil" games. Unfortunately, "Umbrella Corps" isn't one of them. This competitive shooter is enjoyable at first, but quickly becomes a repetitive, poor excuse for an e-sports title. Matches are brief, combat is lame, maps are small and modes are limited to a few types. Single player is an extended series of boring challenges. This is certainly no "Rainbow Six Siege"! At $30, it's twice as much as it should be. There's nothing included that justifies that price. Capcom simply slapped a brand name on a low-quality product to make a quick buck. Even "Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City" is more entertaining. I would give this a 4 out of 10. Expand

Feels like a very cynical cashgrab. There are essentially 2 game modes. The camera is way too close to the character and feels uncomfortable, but gets even worse when you snap into a first person aim down sight perspective to aim. The maps pretty much all come from old RE games and were not designed for competitive multiplayer. The characters move absurdly fast for the very small size of the maps. The weapon balance is terrible. Pretty much everyone would be exclusively using a shotgun and the brainer as they are both one hit kills. Zombies are there but 90% will not attack you due to jammers. This means monsters largely do nothing but get in your way. There are single player missions, but they are not fun at all. They seem to be mostly to practice controls.
    Oh and if you want to play as any recognizable RE character, that will be an extra $15.
    Steer clear of this wreck.
