I'm not much into rail shooters, but this was more than just a rail shooter. The graphics at time were realistic, but majority was up to par with the Wii. The voice acting wasn't that great, but hey, no resident evil game has good voice acting... Which is alright. But the storyline was great. It gave more details to the games than what the original games had. Now I know people didn't like this, but there were scenes in the game that didn't take place in the original. For example, in Resident Evil 2, Leon and Clair split up all the time. In this, they stayed together. And you know what, I liked it that way. It made the game unpredictable. I don't want a game that is a remake completely off the original. Although the storyline fit the original, I liked seeing new things. It made it more interesting. The music was great and it fit the games. The enemies... Wow... The final boss... AMAZING! The game wasn't to hard nor was it to easy. And I loved it so much that I played it again and again.

The only thing I didn't like was they made it to short. You didn't get to explore the police station as much as I'd like them to have made it. I was also hoping Resident Evil 4 would have shown up, but it didn't, and that's alright.

I recommend you at least rent it, and then decide to buy it. I know I will!

Game brings back a lot of great memories from my childhood re-living Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica with an additional story telling how Krauser and Leon knew each other in Resident Evil 4. With upgradable weapons similar to Resident Evil 4 & 5 only complaint I have is that your knuckles WILL hurt from extended play but story is so good your gonna wanna keep playing.

Thought game was very fun to play. However I was a little disapointed that it wasn't more like Resident Evil 4 where you walk around and do things instead of the character walking around. Also it was kind of frustrating when it would pan quickly past the things to pick up so you would have to be quick on the draw to get them. All in all it was a very fun and I give it a solid 8 out of 10 in my ratings. Enjoy :)
