i like survival games and zombie games but this was a litttle meh..
it did scare me at first when a zombie popped out of no where and screamed but then i really started not enjoying the game because it's 3rd person, zombies sometimes are still alive even after a clear headshot
i guess i'll stick to Left 4 Dead because that is FUNNNN
Not sure why there is so many negative reviews with comments such as "Drifted from the original gameplay" or "Supposed to be suspenseful thriller". RE has been on this same path since Resident Evil 4, so Im confused as to why the more action packed, well controlled gameplay is such a surprise/dissapointment.
Ive always loved RE, no matter how the gameplay evolves.. I enjoyed the game from 1-6, throw in a couple side games such as Code Veronica as well. To me at least, the main characteristic of the series is the story. Everyone loves a zombie flick/game and with RE being the most well thought out and intricate story line of them all, of course I'm gonna keep going back.
It may not be the roots of the series, but man was this an entertaining game. Also, the section in every campaign where you have to find the 3 keys in the maze, with that freaky awkwardly walking monster that cant be killed is coming at you, I have to admit I HATE that part, its pretty freaky. So there's a little "suspense" for ya.
I kind of enjoyed the evolution of the zombies, they havn't been a part of the series since the change in the controls and gameplay (RE4) so they obviously had to make them a little bit more threatening. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel if they kept them the slow shambling corpses from the first 3.
Its still not perfect so Ill give it an 8, but they put their time into this. The replay value, unlockables, and the unlimited ammo/fun modes definitely would make it worth while.
It isn't as terribad as some people are giving it, but it is definitely not a great game. Honestly I can not put a finger on it but something is missing. The atmosphere attempts to be scary, it just doesn't work. You have to really think about ammo usage like in other good survival horror games, but it just feels like a poor attempt at an over the shoulder shooter that doesn't give you enough ammo.
I was super bored within minutes of booting it up but gave it a solid 3 hours before stuffing it back in the envelope. I love Gamefly all of the time, but really fracking appreciate it at times like this when I probably would have just bought RE6.
