Decent for a Silent Hill...ah..Resident Evil game.

This is my 4th day playing this game.
In a nutshell, this title is an attempt to modernize ol' skool RE, and it did a decent job. The story is nothing amazing, the gunplay is fun, and the creatures...well..look like the ones from silent hill.
I didn't care much for the campaign (forced myself to beat it), but Raid Mode makes this worth renting (basically a multiplayer objective-based run-and-gun for an S-Rank mode).
In this mode, damage is based on gun statistics in an RPG way, different level guns can be found during missions or bought in a store, and meeting certain requirements unlocks more characters to choose from, each having their own specialty.
I recommend renting it if you have the patience to beat the campaign mode for Raid Mode. I say "Rent" because I can see myself getting sick of this game entirely in about 2 weeks.
P.S: In regards to the campaign mode: There's a guy who looks like Ronald McDonald and the Joker had a kid. He has to be the worst character in RE history. There's also another character that contributes nothing to the storyline, yet get's referenced like 10 times. If you ask me..they're running out of ideas. Hate to say it, but I can't see myself buying another RE game in a long time.
