3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed..., March 26, 2012
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
As others have noted this game does not play like either the early RE games or RE4 or RE5. This game has it's own "feel" to it, and at times reminded me a lot of SOCOM Confrontation or SOCOM 4, especially the features where you can revive your fallen teammates. However, the mechanics on this are not very good. For example, during the heat of battle when you need to revive your teammates you are more likely to "hit x" (on the PS3) and pick up some supplies rather than revive your teammate. This is especially problematic during the boss battles and instead of being able to revive your teammate you pick up a flash grenade that you didn't want anyway and then get killed while trying to revive a teammate. And the AI always seems to get themselves killed and never bother to pick up herbs or heal themselves even when the supplies are close by. There were a few missions that I just left them dead and finished it on my own. It isn't that the game play is difficult so much as it is bad mechanics that cause you to die and make the game more frustrating than fun. By the time I got to the 5th campaign I just didn't care anymore and shut the game off and am returning it.

The graphics are sub-par in my opinion for a PS3 game, which doesn't surprise me since Slant Six was involved with the production of this game more so than Capcom I'm sure. Also when I played with HUNK in the mercenaries game for RE4 he was bad-ace at melee and kills, but in the online play for this game he sucks and is easily defeated. Same with Vector. The game showed promise at times, I especially like the camoflogue for HUNK and Vector, and playing Versus online had its moments but ultimately left me feeling disappointed. And for a full retail of $60 the single campaign is surprisingly short. If Capcom wanted to do something like this to tie us over to RE6 it should have been a $30 retail price since this game offers online play and not much else. I'm hoping the RE6 installment in November will not disappoint.

FINAL GRADE: C

Thanks. I still hold RE4 (Game Cube) & RE5 (PS3) in my collection, but I promptly returned this one.

This game is a rip-off of the 2009 movie DOOMSDAY

This game is what happens when people cry bitch and moan about tank controls and not being able to play like a regular shooter and they listen to the whiners. It doesn't feel much like RE anymore eh?

It's still an enjoyable game I think though
