Capcom's next game, after the...Let's just say "sub-par" games of Resident Evil 6 and Raccoon City. This game sets you as Jill Valentine (mostly...). As you cover the secrets hidden away on an abandoned ship lost at sea.
Some key elements to this game I saw is that it was a MAJOR step in the right direction for Capcom. This game has good atmosphere and chilling settings to play from. They brought back the In-Game inventory box thingy! I heard that was in them original RE games and I found it quite handy. Character designs were very well done with some creepy looking enemies. The level design was one of my favorite things, reminding me of Dead Space! The game played smoothly with beautiful cut-scenes. Then why am I giving this above average?
The thing is, old games were meant to simply pass the time and had no key story to focus on, at least it was for me (never really played much games when I was young). This game gets TOUGH after a while and instead of having fun, researching and running from these creatures, you start you start to get frustrated. Boss battles are ridiculous! I died countless times not knowing whether to shoot whatever was coming at me, or lead it to some spot where I can get a vantage point. Yeah I know, I suck at games, have not heard that before but there is a difference from killing something with skill and relieved that it is dead and being completely frustrated with it. The story was so cliche, I already knew what was going on throughout the game. NPC mapping to the enemies would break, having them not attack. I would get upset over enemies I'd sometimes just ditch them altogether. My partner...Worst of all would always be useless! Enemies would flat out ignore them to come after me. Side characters were annoying, aside from Jill and Chris, I didn't want to play or even listen to anyone else.
All and all, it was a good game, don't get me wrong. Just not my style. Definitely give it a rent and buy it if you enjoyed. Hope this helped.
Bad: Same bio-terrorist plot that is too familiar. dialogue and characters are cartoonish. Controls are sluggish.
WORST OF ALL: the final boss is a huge departure from what you had been doing throughout the game. too much trial and error because of cheap hits and constantly moving around.Hated it!!!
