What went wrong with Operation Raccoon City

Rely on Horror writes: Like I stated in my review of the game, I did enjoy my time with the campaign and continue to find myself sucked into its multiplayer suite. But I’m no fool. I’m not oblivious to all the things that went wrong with the game. So I’m going to talk about the most annoying issues I came across, issues that at times made me want to stop playing completely and head back to Resident Evil 2 and 3.

I’m also more than aware that this game was designed as a co-op/ multiplayer experience, with that in mind throughout the entirety of its development time from Slant Six. So, me judging it by my time playing the campaign solo may seem somewhat unfair. To those that have told me that after reading my review, I’ll say this: To me, despite what the developer’s intentions are, Resident Evil is always a single-player experience first and foremost. So, having said that, on to the list of ORC’s most frustratingly apparent flaws! (PC, PS3, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Xbox 360)

Well, it's a game no-one wanted.

It sold some 200 000+ each on the 360 and PS3 opening week. So much for nobody wanting it.

It never took me 4 blasts with a shotgun at point blank range to kill someone in SOCOM. I could vault obstacles in SOCOM because the ability to jump, not bunny hot, but jump > cover mode.

Trying to bunny hop in SOCOM was instant death. But I could hop a low wall or jump up onto the front hood or trunk of a car. SOCOM didn't have monster closets where soldiers are apparently kept with no light, food, or toilet until some intruders enter the building and then they pop out. No wonder they are angry. SOCOM graphics > REORC. I could do this all day.

As much as I respect the guy's opinion and 7/10 review...

I can't say that I agree with giving it a 7/10, then writing a whole article about why it was bad. Capcom doesn't deserve pity points for a bad game - they're big boys and girls.

Spin-offs of the series are never as good as the main entries. I'm not even surprise. I might pick it up later just because it's Resident Evil game.

I think people had a misconception about this game. And that was that it would play like a traditional Resident Evil game. That seems to be the largest complaint, but it's it's an unfair one.

O:RC obviously looks like a different game than the others. You're sent in as a squard to kill anything in your past. Why would that play like the other games?

It's like MGR, in that respect: it's part of the series, but is a title taking a different approach from the primary stories in the series. It even goes as far as having different main characters than usual, further distancing it from the mainline franchise.
