'Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City' is a reunion that fans could skip
Slant Six Games and Capcom attempted to retell one of the most memorable games only to fall short due to mediocre game-play along with a poorly written story and terrible voice-over performance.

The plot of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City focuses on the actions of U.S.S. Delta Team (nicknamed "Wolfpack") and US Special Operations during the Raccoon City Incident. Delta Team was tasked in assisting HULK in retrieving the G-Virus sample but the mission failed and the T-Virus was unleashed on the city. As result of the outbreak, Delta Team is tasked with destroying evidence linking Umbrella to the catastrophe.

Fans would be expecting a retelling of one of the most iconic video games from a different perspective. But with a combonation of poor dialogue and choppy story telling; gamers have been given a butchered retelling of a classic. This new story is just the same plot of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 only with unnecessary content added to the mix.

Oh as for those "what if moments"; they were over-hyped.

Slant Six and Capcom had to make a new plot based around an existing story but they managed to screw it up. Unfortunately the game play aspect also shows very little hope of redemption.

Its squad-based action that mostly consists of maybe one useful teammate who will heal you at times while your squad will walk into your line of fire. Sure they will shoot back at hostiles but you will be doing most the work.

Gamers will encounter the same dumb AI and glitchy action that is expect from almost every poorly developed game. But this being a Resident Evil-game; fans should consider this kind of effort to be an insult to the series.

Thankfully redemption is found in its multiplayer aspect. Despite its flawed story and game play, its multiplayer makes an excellent guilty pleasure for the weekend. In the end we all love killing zombies and Left 4 Dead 2 was getting boring.

Overall Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City tries to give gamers a new take on the Raccoon City Incident only to fail due to a poor setup and a lack of effort. However it’s still worth playing just for some weekend fun.

Or do your self a favor and just wait for Resident Evil 6.
