More Problems Than Solutions

This game had a lot of potential to become what Dead Island wasn't, a great cooperative zombie game but like Dead Island, it failed to satisfy.
Poor gameplay design/mechanics - No roll button but rather a useless dive makes evading gunfire and melee attacks nearly impossible. Stiff and slow aiming even when it's at max sensitivity. No enter/exit cover button but instead an auto cover button where you just walk near a wall and you pop into cover which doesn't work well in this type of game. Overpowered weapons like the grenade launcher and overpowered melee because once you get caught in someone's melee it is impossible to get out of it and you can just sit there and watch your health bar go away.
Bland sound and visuals - The levels and graphics aren't memorable and the sound design and music isn't as well.
Short and boring campaign - 6 missions coming in at about 20 minutes each with a weak storyline and mission designs.
Terrible AI's - Your campaign partners are just plain stupid. They walk into fires and mines, sometimes they sit there and do nothing especially on bosses, and they don't revive you when you're down.
Co-op/Multiplayer - When the played with people, the campaign is enjoyable as your teammates actually do stuff that the terrible AI wouldn't. The competitive multiplayer modes are the usual TDM, Capture the Objective, and Last Man Standing but ORC adds a unique twist to these traditional game modes by adding zombies in them. The zombies play a huge role as they can net you points to win as well as kill your enemies. Damage an enemy enough and they will start to bleed and once bleeding, zombies will follow the blood and swarm him.
Unlocks - The unlockables are plenty to please. There's lots of weapons to unlock, active and passive abilities to unlock and upgrade for each class, and an art gallery for those who like to collect the items in the campaign.
So all in all, it's a enjoyable multiplayer experience but as a whole, it's no

Disappointing game to be a resident evil title heres why:
1.The storyline was short and dull and left me confused
2. should have done a storyline for S.T.A.R.S
3. Shallow multiplayer and laggy co-op play when more than 2 are playing
4. game engine and A.I problems, dated visuals(expected eye popping enviroments and more gruesome looking zombies)
5.aim system felt sluggish( had to raise sensitivity to max to get a better response)
6. Abilities did not really make a difference in game(hardly had to use them)
7. Felt more like a $15 arcade shooter not worth buying
8. If ur new to resident evil rent it if u are a fan of it don't bother u will send it back the next day.
9.Ending to the game was an epic fail truly lame.

this could and should have been an awesome game.. it just seems rushed and sloppy. i love resident evil and i was so excited when i got the game in the mail. the first day of playing was fun.. but then it just got boring.. for some main concerns from others.. first off what i hated the most is emptying all of my ammo into one guy just to kill them. its just plain stupid. the story is way too linear, WAY too short, and plain boring. i usually try to get all of the trophies to a game but im pretty disappointed in it to try for them. plus, unless i find 3 other good players theres no way im getting the s+ trophies. i really dont care about friendly ai. id rather them be stupid then take all your kills. all in all its good.. just not great.
