Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a horror-survival, team-based third-person shooter. It is September 1998 and the action centers on the ill-fated Raccoon City during the outbreak of the T-Virus. The USS (Umbrella Security Soldier) team is given orders to destroy all evidence of Umbrella’s involvement and silence anyone that might discover the truth. Players take on the role of a USS and battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City. Choose from 6 characters, each one equipped with a unique skill set. Risk infection from the hordes of zombies. Fight to survive with anti-viral sprays, your character's special skills or help from field scientist Bertha before your character's condition worsens, turning you into a violent zombie who will attack your own team members. The game also offers 4-player co-op play, and the online Heroes Mode which allows for play as classic Resident Evil characters, such as Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield and others.

Rated out of 5 by from Sad to say that the main reason someone might buy this title is because of the Resident Evil brand name. Being able to do a spin-off of the core series is a great way to explore and revisit the past (Resident Evil 2 & 3). Though the concept of being an agent of Umbrella Corporation is unique and promising; providing different perspective of the retro games. I must say that the great concept fails dramatically due to poor execution. The most important ingredient for any game is the gameplay, but before I even get into that, I'm going to rant! The sound and graphics seems like it came from PSone/PS2 era (maybe it's intended lol, for the retro feel o_O), The 3rd person action element is fun, but they got to fix the intelligence in the A.I., they are the death of you, because they don't assist you, they get killed and you have to keep on spending time to heal them. The game can be finished within few hours because it only consisted of a few levels. I'm just surprised that the developers would have the nerve to release DLCs (that seems like it was held back from the game) and expects people to pay for them, by each level, WOW! I mean if you made a good game people might buy into that, but this is not the case, far from it. Eventually, I think the low sales will provoke the release of free DLCs for all the levels. In terms of gameplay, being a fan of Resident Evil from the beginning of the series, the departure from puzzles (I have no problem with that, but it would be nice if they would revisit those roots as well), it's fun to have the action as the main focus (I understand they are trying to gain more fans through zombie-killing action). The action is not done well, I mean I keep on shoot the guy and there is like no reaction... kills the fun factor. the zombies "feels" more "alive" than the living, the zombies actually react to the shots, while the human special force counter parts just stands there and keeps shooting at you. Fun factor yes, only the 1st playthrough, traded game after playing the 1st free DLC Waiting for Resident Evil 6 released later this Fall 2012 game rating D- -Crofty
