Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City | IRB Gamer Review

IRB Gaming writes: Surprisingly, Operation Raccoon City provides an addicting co-op story (more fun with friends than memorable) and multiplayer games likes Heroes Mode, Biohazard and the upcoming Nemesis Mode, possibly making this one of the better entertaining titles for the 1st Quarter of 2012. You’ll definitely keep this in your console for quite some time!

hmm, reviews for this game are all over the place, well i'll probably trade MW3 for it :D

MilkEmHard2253d ago

I agree so far it has had a 3/10, 9/10 3.5/5 and now a 4.25/5. I think I will be picking it up tomorrow but I am still waiting for a couple more reviews. Also the 3/10 review was a terrible review he only reviewed 1/3 of the game.

MasterD9192253d ago

IGN gave the 3/10 score. No surprise there as it was a biased preview more than an actual review.

xPhearR3dx2253d ago


No they didn't. Game TM or something gave it a 3/10. IGN has yet to post their review.

Laxman2253d ago

Master, you're thinking of IGN's review for Ninja Gaiden. But yeah, they will likely have a terrible score for this game, too. More and more they are losing respect as critics, their scores and reviews themselves are very often overly biased and opinionated, moreso recently.

killerhog2253d ago (Edited 2253d ago )

Looks like its receiving the same criticism as ninja gaiden.

Kingdom Come2252d ago

As I stated in my Blog post, Games TM's review was terrible, they hadn't even played Co-Op or Versus Multiplayer and reviewed the game based on 4 Hours of singleplayer gameplay.

morganfell2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

I just came back from best Buy with the Raccoon City Special Edition (it has all 8 Bonus Weapons and 6 Outfits) along with Ninja Gaiden III and Armored Core V. I'll get into it later today. NGIII first.

I do not know if the game is good or not. But the last thing I will do is allow these imbeciles to decide for me. They have proven without doubt they are a nuisance to be avoided.

The best thing we as gamers can begin to do is to stop lending any sort of relevancy to any site, large or small, that doesn't list detailed grading standards nor do they provide and enforce an editorial policy that prevents angry adolescents from damning a decent game.

Also such sites fail to prevent overly enamored morons from maxing out a mediocre title while dodging the doorway wide issues that any normal gamer would spot.

As well we need to rail against incidents that reek of industry payola.

It is high time gamers begin to remove the undue influence these idiotic, self appointed know-it-alls have on our favored pastime.

Gaming1012252d ago

IGN's review just came out, 4/10. I'm sure anyone can see now more than ever that this kind of widespread scoring for games is destroying the credibility of review sites. We don't want your biased opinion, we want objectivity!

I shall too most likely trade mw3 for it.

hihosilver2252d ago

i want to buy this game, but im tired of capcoms dlc bs always incomplete.

skyblue142132252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )


Then do what I do and play the waiting game until the game price gets cheaper or the inevitable "ultimate super deluxe edition" of the game comes out which will include all of the dlc with the game from the get go. That way you get the complete version of the game at a discounted price, and by then all of the bugs inherent in the game will probably be fixed. Remember patience is a virtue.

Morbius4202252d ago

I see your point sky but this game's emphasis is on multipllayer: if you waitt for the 'super-edition' you'll have no one to play with on a game that isn't Modern Warfare. Everyone will have moved on, probably to MW or even Halo 4.

ISNeko2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

Well, I know I'm having a damn fun coop time with it. I thought Slant Six might drop the ball but they didn't eat popcorn before the game it seems.

asmith23062252d ago

Im on a Resident Evil buzz lately, just finished 2 and am playing through 3 now, so will probably pick this up. The review scores are all over the place though, whats the deal?

ClydeRadcliffe2252d ago

The game is just a very mixed bag. Some are going to despise it, some might love it, and the rest will see that it's an entertaining shooter that comes good in multi-player, but which is absolutely riddled with flaws

Toster2252d ago

Ive played this game and whether ur an RE fan or not I honestly cant see anyone "loving" this game. IGN gave it a 4.0 and I agree. They gace Ninja Gaiden a 3.0 and I disagree on that rating and same for NeverDead that got a poor rating too. But RE ORC I agree with 4.0 U dont want to make a classic RE game sure thats fine... But for god sakes at least make the game good! AI in this game is annoying. Controls are crap. It's basically a crappy version of Socom.

svoulis2252d ago

I just bought this game and it's pure fun. The game mechanics make perfect sense. The controls work beautifully and the game is dark and gritty all over. GORY as hell and just fun all over the place especially with friends.

I recommend this game not only to Resident Evil fans but also, fans of shooters in general.

BattleTorn2252d ago

Thank you!

I'm not a traditional RE fan (I kinda hated RE5, cause of the no-movement while shooting)

But RE:ORC looks like my type of TPS.

I hope this is a "Dead Island Scenario" over again, where I fall in LOVE with a game which is receiving mix'd reviews.

svoulis2252d ago

People really need to stop F#@king comparing this to "traditional" RE games, its a spin off, a different game all together.

The most RE fans can do is enjoy the updated scenarios that the game offers like the RPD and key areas you've played through all those years ago.

Anyway about your comment sadly it's not like Dead Island which would've been amazing. Its very linear the zombies don't respawn in all areas which is sad and I wish they had some type of combo/point system on the campaign to make you want to keep killing zombies to rack up a good leaderboard score.

But sadly no. I feel that once I beat the campaign and get bored of online play I wont just go back.

This should've been L4D meets the RE universe. But instead its more like Socom meets RE.

Still don't think this game deserves a 3 or 4 out of 10 not by a long shot.

Soldierone2252d ago

To be entirely honest its not Resident Evil at all. Beyond a few enemy appearances and the story it has nothing to do with the universe.

Basically its Socom with zombies in the middle, best way to describe it. Which is a killer idea, but as noted there are many flaws that I'm hoping get fixed soon....

DeadSpaced2252d ago

What happened to the IGN that reviewed games respectfully without taking enormous bribes from million dollar companies? You have to admit that some of the games that IGN raves about are trash, produced by a company with enough money to make it rain for months.

snipes1012252d ago

How does that have anything to do with this review? Good lord people really are stretching to diss IGN nowadays. You didnt even mention Operation Raccoon City.

DeadSpaced2252d ago

You mad, bro? It's not much of a stretch. But I will admit, I should have talked about Operation Raccoon City more.

However, there is something I must know. Why are you so upset with people who don't like IGN?

snipes1012252d ago

I could care less who does and doesnt like the site, but this article doesnt have anything to do with IGN. At all. Your comment is entirely off topic and you just come off as another bandwagoner on the "its cool to hate IGN train."

Not to mention, most people on that train are total hypocrites. Go over to the IGN review for ORC posted just a few minutes ago and people are praising them for destroying the game.

Typical N4G crowd.

antz11042252d ago

LMAO, got any extra tinfoil hats laying around? :-D

Irrelevant conspiracy theories aside, this games scores are all over the map to get a clear read. Maybe I'll just wait until RE6 to jump back into the series.
