Like everyone says, it had alot going for it, but then again, people shouldn't put so much hype on a game with a new twist. That happened with Duke Nukem and I thought that game was alright too because it was a classic style shooter and not all of this CoD aiming, but that's beside the point. ORC is a Resident Evil game for Resident Evil fans, to me. The graphics are decent, but nothing to brag about. The voice acting was at least better than RE1 (lol). Anyone who bought this without experiencing the other RE games definitely made a mistake and should just wait for a fully Capcom made RE game (Resident Evil 6) because Slant Six made this, Capcom only funded it and licensed it, So I think all of these 1-4 ratings are completely exaggerated and people need to calm down. This game wasn't perfect, but it isn't trerrible. The only AI that is completely terrible is your AI partners, the other AI is okay at best, How do you solve this problem? Play co-op! People just need to lower their expectations a bit. There's alot of onscreen enemies (not Dynasty Warrior amount) and the AI is most likely stuck trying to decide whether to kill you or the zombies and the zombie are stuck between you and the miltary. So cut this game some slack because if you were in this situation, you honestly wouldn't know who to kill and your overconfidence won't save you.

So if your an RE fan: Get it
If you only play Cod or have a total of 10 or less Xbox games that don't have any RE other than 5: Don't Get! Rent it

I've played more than my fair share of games (217) on my xbox and I have seen some bad games (DMMM: Elements, KUF: Circle of Doom, Duke Nukem: Manhatten Project).

So don't base rent or buy completely on others' reviews, go buy your own review. If you like it, who cares what others think.

as a Resident Evil fan who could never get the classic "tank" controls, I had high hopes for Operation Raccoon City. Unfortunately, it's a giant mess.

1) AI partners are brain dead morons. They will run into walls, run into your gunfire, run into fire, and die a lot. They also rarely heal themselves or you.

2) even on casual, enemies feel like cheap overpowered bullet sponges

3) AI cannot revive you, so if you aren't playing multiplayer be prepared to see "You Are Dead" on screen constantly.

4) glitches aplenty

5) pressing the A button while sprinting will make your character dive awkwardly to the ground, which gets real irritating real fast when you want to grab a green herb to heal

6) just feels unpolished

7) unable to upgrade mid-level

2 player co-op no longer reffers to split screen 2 player in gamer terms. thats BS. I think companies should HAVE to put ONLINE by the multiplayer on the box. Putting 2 playes anywhere on the box when the game does not have split screen is FOUL AND MISLEADING. Thank you game fly, i would have been furious if this had been a purchase and not a rental.. haahahah. I'm gonna go re-play Rez 5. Cant wait for 6. >_<
