"2012 started off so bright for the Resident Evil franchise. In February, gamers were treated to the great Resident Evil: Revelations, a game that managed to bring tension and atmosphere back to the series, something that I felt was lost in Resident Evil 5. Then you had the exceptional trailer for Resident Evil 6. It’s causing some hype in the gaming community at the moment, gaining record preorders for the series. Right now the second Resident Evil game of the year has arrived. This one is a little different because the Japanese aren’t the developers of this title. As an alternative, Capcom is letting the Canadian Studio, Slant Six Games, merge its Socom experience with the Resident Evil I.P to bring cooperative gameplay once again to the series. Operation Raccoon City is a pure action third-person shooter with basic cover mechanics that’s regrettably not as good as I would have hoped for."
