Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PC)
31 July 2013
Conclusion: Operation Raccoon City is an interesting game for Resident Evil veterans, but its gameplay presents a unique challenge due to questionable design and there’s generally not a whole lot of value within. While it’s generic and tedious, there are some entertaining bits, but it’s not worth the investment unless you’re a seriously hardcore Resident Evil fan. My Rating: 3/10 – bad.
Review: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Special Edition (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Summary: : Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City does a solid job of taking the franchise in a different direction, mechanically, from the norm, and while it’s not the best game for those who want to play it solo, it’s an absolute blast with friends. The plot is generally solid and gives Delta Team enough of a personality to make them interesting, and there are a good amount of modes to play with online and off.
Excerpt: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a disgrace to the franchise. I have heard many people say that it is not worth playing very much without online multiplayer, and I agree with them. The story itself is engaging and interesting, and had brilliant promise, but it is so poorly executed that you find yourself not even caring anymore. Even on the easiest setting, some of the campaigns can be difficult to clear unless you have other real-world people helping you out.
Excerpt: On paper, the idea of a squad-based shooter drawing from Resident Evil canon with loose narrative ties to the earlier games in the series seems like a solid idea. Slant Six Games' executes on the concept with varying degrees of success, but much of the experience is undermined by a number of basic game mechanics that, at best, just aren't particularly fun. On the contrary, annoyance and frustration were much more prevalent emotions throughout my experience.

Excerpt: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is getting a lot of attention for its rather unique approach to the Resident Evil universe. Players control a squad of Umbrella Corporation-hired soldiers as they take on zombies, US military units, and Leon Kennedy and work to cover up the truth about Raccoon City. First, Operation Raccoon City is very much an action game. Jumping in with Bertha (she’s one of four different characters), our group is tasked with eliminating Leon.
