Summary: I've played three resident evil games which isn't many, but this is the worst of them not very enjoyable. The pros: graphics that still hold up well, and decent puzzles, also an ok story. The cons: not many scares, the controls aren't perfect like #4, characters are a bit one dimensional, and you have to do a large amount of backtracking which is ok if you have alot of time to play video games, but it isn't for me.
Summary: My score is based on comparing it to other games on its release date, NOT current generation games.If you follow the storyline of the game series, have a somewhat more than useless AI partner than other installments of the series.Targeting is so-so for that year,but the graphics, sound effects,and overall enjoyment I had with this installment are what I expected of an RE game of the early 2000's.
Summary: Zero is a great game in the resident evil series. Maybe not quite as good as some of the others but definately up there. Its really a good game for any resident evil fan or any gamer who enjoys puzzles and zombies. As for everyone who complains about the controls, its not that they're difficult, you're just not used to them. Movement is very easy, UP always moves you forward, DOWN always moves you backwards, LEFT turns you left and RIGHT turns you right. simple.
