I wish I could give it more of a review, but I can't. The controls are broke.... I don't understand how this game got out of test. The control scheme is horrible. I spent more time thinking about how bad the controls were that I could not get immersed in the game. It totally ruined the game for me.
From what I could tell in the 3 torturous hours I played, the story seemed like it was going to get good, but I gave up.
After the RE5 disappointment, and getting suckered into buying the worst game of the year(followed by re6 in a close second) Operation Racoon City, I am done with RE games.
Capcom = FAIL
For a true horror game experience like the old RE games, go to Dead Space for your gaming needs.
Honestly, I went in to play this game with an open mind. Read a lot of mixed reviews overall, so I decided to see if the game could suit my wants..
All in all, I gave an 8 for review because I really really enjoyed Leon's campaign because it brought back the memories of the old Resident Evil's ability to scare the heck outta you when in darkness. Upon completing Leon's campaign, I tried out Chris' campaign and was disappointed that it turned out the same as Resident Evil 5. So I stopped without even completing the first chapter of Chris'... Nevertheless, I enjoyed the game very well to play a good 15+ hours worth.
I have loved resident evil and have played everyone starting from one and even read the books on the series. Which are well written but this game is just awful the franchise is nothing what it started out as 3 was the last good game although 4 was amazing they weren't zombies anymore and it was still fun but by god this is a load of (I can't say what I want). racing? having to climb a rope? and the story is awful I just can't make excuses anymore I am done with the series
