Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC



http://www.gamespot.com/news/6305877.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=newstop&tag=new stop%3Btitle%3B3


Apparently there's a squad based Resident Evil game scheduled to come out at the end of the year. I'll admit that I'm curious even though I'm not a huge fan of squad based games.

I never gave the RE:Outbreak games a try but I always thought the concept was interesting. I wish Capcom could revisit this style of multi-player game play.

I know they're releasing RE:4 on X-Box Arcade, maybe they'll re-release Outbreak if this squad shooter does well.

I think the RE: Outbreak concept would work better with a first-person-shooter perspective...thinking back to those original PS2 games, the concept was cool but third-person perspective made things confusing at the best of times...throw in a dozen-or-so zombies and it quickly became a complete cluster fuck.

The trend with RE games now seems to be the third person over-the-shoulder view introduced in RE 4. I would be really surprised if they didn't use it in the new one. Four player Mercenary missions on RE5 worked fine, as I'm sure they will for this one, I just hope that the story mode doesn't suffer for it. Worrying about one character with shitty AI was bad enough but having to deal with four? Yikes.

"It will reportedly be set in 1998, around the time of Umbrella's original T-virus outbreak."

Me = drooling in anticipation...

Outbreak was ahead of it's time. The Playstation Network was in its infancy, and was a pay service from what I remember and getting a group of people who didn't include a dickhead who didn't care about things was a problem (from what some of my friends told me - that's 2nd hand though, as I never went online with it).

But the concept was great (even in single-player mode). I never finished the 2nd one, but now I just might.

I hope they come up with something more creative than a L4D clone with the RE characters pasted in.

Done creatively, this game could be fun.

I'll probably wait to buy it for a while to wait for a price reduction, but it looks like it's more action than survival horror/puzzle solving.

Picked it up but haven't played it yet. Excited to try it out, but I went back and have been playing the PS2 games I never quite finished (Outbreak and Outbreak File 2). Kinda crazy playing PS2 on a big screen, but it will make the graphics for this game that much better.

I love Outbreak File 1 and 2. Why haven't they made something like that for current gen systems. Real-time third-person co-op survival horror, with a plot that is broken into multiple episodes. Eight very unique characters to choose from. I obviously never had a chance to play them online, but still enjoy them immensely. So far still the best Resident Evil games, in my mind.

Yeah - never upgraded for the network/online play of these games back in the day. Interesting that Capcom was doing that so long ago, but I heard it was buggy as hell from others that tried it. Much better now on the next-gen consoles, maybe they'll do a port to buy in the Playstation Store and have new network compatibility or something. Was a cool concept but think it was just a few years too early. Everyone had to wait until Left 4 Dead came out for a really fun well-rounded zombie-killin' experience!

Beat this in 4 hrs. The controls are sketchy, any story is lacking, the zombies are cool, and the fact that you're taking out them and all the humans left inhabiting the place. Glad I didn't pay for it. Anyone on the fence should wait for a $10 used copy at gamestop

Wanted to get the DLC Spec Ops missions, but after that whole compromise, didn't want to get a PS account with a CC tied to it. My brother gave me a suggestion to just get a gift-card and that worked out great and got the 2 mission packs.

Going back into the game playing from the other team was different (but obviously familiar as it's a lot of the same environments). Kind of like Resident Evil 2, when you play through from the other side of the fire, it's a familiar but unique experience.

2 missions I've done I've had a blast with, but running around an apocalyptic streetscape for first mission and then more of that for the 2nd mission was definitely a winner for me. Some hate towards this game, but if you're a RE fan, this departure in solo gameplay didn't work against the title like so many people said. I find it a fast-tracked version, but more true to the original games than the newer ones with the Los Plagas stuff. Haven't opened up my copy of 6 yet, but will do that after this.

***One thing to note, for those who are PC gamers and are all thumbs when it comes to playing FPS on console, I found this controller that basically splits the PS3 controller into a nunchuk type controller and basically a mouse. Makes it so much easier for any games like Killzone, this and any other FPS games. Takes a little bit to get used to, but not anywhere close to how long it was taking me to get used to the PS3 controller. Didn't play any FPS's for years on my PS3 because I kept getting so frustrated with those thumb controls after 20 years of PC gaming...

A lot of people absolutely HATED this game, but I found it kinda fun, if not a bit difficult (even on easy). I would'a liked more zombie fightin' however, rather than goin' against the commando squads. Sure, there are a few levels with zombies, but you gotta fight the commando squads in the middle of that, and it gets annoyin'. And don't even get me started on those damn Hunters. I got killed too many damn times by those bastards. The Nemesis ended up bein' the worst boss for me, as I couldn't figure out what the Hell to do and died a buncha times on him too.

Overall though, I still found it pretty fun. Bein' a big fan of the Resident Evil series (yes, includin' part 6), it was nice goin' back through the familiar places of the series. Readin' about the DLC content, I might have to go and pick that up.
