Just to clear it up for those that don't appreciate irony, the horror of Resident evil is not the exquisite dialog and compelling story line. It's the fact that put quite simply, this game absolutely sucks.
I apologise in advance for the rant. But the quality of game play alone is completely below par, so much that even attempting the Chris or Jake play through's are nothing more than a sad and depressing chore , how the developers seem to have abandoned all passion for what the franchise started out as and built its reputation on is a complete mystery to me.
Even the Resident evil films are looking like works of art in comparison to this lackluster attempt at a horror genre.
Capcom have essentially erased the magic of Resident evil by trying to make it 3 different games rolled into one, One of them being a Gears of War ( the Chris play through ) doppelganger that barely comes close to being anywhere near as good.
I feel the direction they have taken Resi needs to come to a screeching halt and go back to basic idea of being a pulse pounding tense horror/thriler. I even feel as though "Operation Racoon City" and "Outbreak" even put it to shame and I can't see myself buying another until someone at Capcom has an epiphany and understands the fun stopped in 2009 with Resi 5.
I admit to being a bit of a cynic at times and maybe I'm just blowing steam after my disappointment, Or maybe a lot of people out there feel the same way, regardless let me know what you all think, there might be someone out there with a convincing enough arguement to make me see a better side to the game.
