Why is there no 11 on the rating chart?

I usually max out my reviews and run out of letters allowed for them, but for this one...i dont need to justify any short review. Buy this game. You may be a racing fan, a fighting game lover, you might love madden and maybe a little Pac-man here and there. but all of that goes out the window once you have played this game. if you dont have a Gamecube, buy one for this game. dont make me repeat myself....just buy it. what's it cost? $15? dont be cheap...that's less than a movie that lasts 2 hours compared to this game's 50. B-U-Y---I-T!

What a game! This is a thriller, your always of the couch, sometimes scared half to death. I mean the crazy towns people with the exploding heads. The excitement in this game is amazing. If you put down the controller and pause the game, then you must got to go bad. The plot line is great and new details keep popping up and until the end, you wont know what is happening. From the first level you know this isn't just shoot shoot bang bang, you need to use strategy and your head not just a machine gun. The games about a guy who goes to a weird town to save a girl. A very special girl, till that point the story is not that scary but after that it really starts to get scary. This game is great, one of a kind. The graphics are great and the voices are too. The perfect details go into every character from bad to good from the first minute to the last. Also this game is hard!!! So for the people who don't like playing games that are challenging and will take them more than a weekend to beat, should not play this game.

This work of horrific art is really horrific, indeed. I almost shivered to death just thinking what would happen next, as I walked Leon through the dark, decaying walls of many distorted buildings. You might say I could of dropped the controller in fright, but no, I clung to that thing as if my hands were attached right to the plastic(God of War reference.)Well enough about how scary it is...........no wait I have more- as your walking through dark sewers your enemy will pop out at you, forcing a huge gasp to escape from your mouth,and when a tentacle shoots out of your grisly enemy's head after you have blown it away, you'll feel very helpless....at first.

You'll have many weapons to get rid of your frightening foes, like a rocket launcher, basic gun, knife, rock...and so on and so forth. All the unique weapons can be upgraded for a higher attack and faster reload;more bullet space and possibly a silencer. Upgrading is a very important task in the completion of the game and will add to your game time in the long run.

The dark,dreary atmospheres and the forboding sounds really spell Resident Evil right out for you. You'll be pulled deep into the amazing story in no time and probably have a hard time putting it down(or mabey, like I said earlier, your hands are just stuck.)The many characters play a huge part in the believability of the plot, with awesome visuals and great voice-acting which helps move the story along smoothly. Being a two-disc game you'll get a lot out of it.40 hours easy.

The bosses are great...I'll actually tell about one boss encounter I'll never forget.
In a secluded cabin, with the grotesque enemy chief,I forget how many times I fired my weapons, but I remember when I almost ran out. When I almost had him killed, and as my life was depleting rather quickly,I climed stairs to a loft and ran around to the far side away from the enemy. As it crawled toward me quickly I pulled out my rifle and shot at his head. Almost died, it was freaky.
