Resident Evil: Outbreak PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Hearing word of an online Resident Evil game stumbling towards us had us quite excited to say the least. We’re sure the classic Resident Evil formula with the addition of team based antics would make for a fine online game, alas it was not to be -at least over here in Europe- as the very reason the game exists, namely online play, has been cut from the package. The question is: does Resident Evil: Outbreak still work as an offline game?

  • Excerpt: Two years ago, I received a spanking copy of the Resident Evil remake through my door. When Resident Evil: Outbreak arrived through my little letterbox today, the memories came flooding back. I remembered how I dreaded the control system, yet had mastered those gushy headshots with aplomb. I remember almost soiling my shorts on occasion and being gleefully dragged through the entire adventure thanks to the excellent story and gorgeously gory cut-scenes.

  • Summary: Resident Evil: Outbreak provides a split-opinion. It's the best Resident Evil title to hit the PlayStation 2 since Code: Veronica X but it still brings about a feeling of half-hearted dedication to it with an awkward and sometimes annoying level of downfalls. Despite only having five levels, the game does have a decent amount of replay value with the scenarios differing depending on your choice of character, and there's a ton of CG movies, still pictures, sound effects,...

  • Excerpt: Born in 1997, Resident Evil earned the respect of gamers the world over when it delivered a genuinely chilling horror story to the PSOne console. It set the survival horror genre alight, and it wasn't long before a plethora of clones and so-called 'Resi-beaters' made themselves known to a zombie-mad audience. Furthermore, Resident Evil itself has been subject to myriad sequels and spin off games.

Violent, gory, scary -- for mature players only.

Common Sense Media
21 August 2004
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is designed to be scary and bloody. In fact, it starts with a disclaimer advising that the game contains "explicit violence and gore." While there are some positive elements to the game, such as teamwork and puzzle-solving, this M-rated title is for adults only.

  • Excerpt: To date, the sense of terror and dread permeating the action of the famed survival/horror series has been inadvertently exacerbated by the tactile aggravation of static camera angles and clunky character controls. Not so anymore.

Resident Evil Outbreak Review

GameSpot
1 June 2004
  • Excerpt: When Capcom first began making indications over two years ago that an online Resident Evil was in development, fans began to speculate about the potential for the game, envisioning a vast Raccoon City overrun by zombies in which many players could work together to escape the shambling menace. Now Capcom's efforts have come to fruition in Resident Evil Outbreak, and the result is something less than the initial concept may have suggested.
