One of the most revolutionary games of all time. It has permanently stamped the over the shoulder shot into horror and non-horror games! This is, without a doubt, the best Resident Evil yet! With horrific predecessors, would the developers ever outdo the horror of the first one!? No, it was done and it was never to be replicated in a different way, so they gambled their dice and decided to take a different route. Well guess what? It worked. But it didn't just work -- it blew people away and was even better than any of the ones before. It used the classic horror techniques from horror movies and from its very own prequels and made this one the perfect combination of horror and action which led the Resident Evil series in a totally different path to be taken.
As Leon you will travel to Spain and encounter a new virus, and zombies of a new kind: Los Illuminados. Throwing in cult horror, zombie horror, Rambo-type action (less exaggerated of course), repulsive monsters and sexy women, you've got the best horror survival game ever. As you progress through Spain, you find yourself unveiling more and more of the Umbrella Corporation and finding different aspects and branches of their experimentation and evil! This game adds the classic back into horror, especially with the gloomy, dead tree setting as well as rainy nights, chainsaws, religious maniacs and absolute rotting stink of death in the air, everywhere you go.
I loved this game and will forever be in my top 10 favorite games ever. The game even adds some humor and you'll grow to love Leon and my second favorite character -- the merchant who refers to you as "stranger". This game is worth buying and after you beat the game, I guarantee you'll beat it again at least two more times due to the unlock able weapons, perks and costumes. Mercenaries is also really fun.
My suggestion: buy it. It will be a vital addition to your game collection!
