I've played all the old and new R.E games, so I was very curious about this game (despite the bad reviews). It feels like an average shooter game and the controls are on the clunky side. Is it unplayable? No but it can annoy you. For example, when you run out of ammo on your weapon in the middle of combat, it takes 2 taps on the left bumper to switch to your handgun (when it should only be 1 tap). It may not mean much right now but every second counts when you find yourself surrounded by zombies or B.O.Ws. Taking cover is also a pain in the butt because it is flawed. How? Well, it seems to only work when it wants to and you struggle with it throughout the game. It can take several taps on the A button before your character actually takes cover. A.I is also pretty bad but they're useful as they keep bosses off your back while you run around doing tasks (teammates always die). Graphics are a bit above average. If you play in Normal difficulty, you will find ammo and health everywhere. Sometimes it felt like I was playing Left4Dead because of the crazy tasks that you sometimes have to do. There are also U.S Government SPEC-OPS all over the place who you gotta fight and boy are they annoying as it gets repetitive. I gotta admit though. Spraying bullets at hordes of zombies and running into R.E characters was fun. Doesn't hurt renting if you're curious about it but I wouldn't buy it.
I'm glad I rented this game from gamefly and didn't go out and spend money on it. Resident Evil 5 was better than this one by a long shot. You would think play R.E with a 4 man team would be awesome but..... To tell you the truth, R.E.3 was even better than this game and the was on the PS1. Its a cool game to try, but don't go out and buy.
