As Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City launches in North America today and in Europe later this week, Capcom has today released the launch trailer for the game, depicting a hefty dose of bloody violence as the Umbrella Security Services blast their way through hordes of zombies, bio-organic weapons and hulking escaped Tyrants.

Set during the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3, you play as the USS team, sent in to Raccoon City to brush the whole T-virus and G-virus incident under the carpet, destroy the evidence and dispose of any witnesses, including the likes of Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong, Jill Valentine et al.

Yes, there will be Nemesis action too, as shown in the launch trailer. Check out the video below, then be sure to read our Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City verdict in our review. Resident Evil: ORC is out today in North America and March 23rd in Europe.

I'm with #4, me and a friend plan to have a blast smashing zombie heads. I'm not letting what other people think of the game put me off, it's their opinion after all.

Poeple are slating it but i am truely enjoying it. Anyone who was born pre 2000 will feel at home on the controls. Story wise im saving for a 4 player marathon with freinds but the first 2 levels have been very interesting if you know your resi2/3 lore.

I'm still getting it the only thing I'm avoiding is the reviews on this website. Googled resi orc reviews got an 8/10 first website I found. And you wonder why developers have to close down with internet amateurs pulling games apart for not being just like COD.

I'm excited for the game, reviews be damned.

But I am not buying it now.

Too many games on my plate, first of all. And second of all, it's not really a MUST HAVE right now. I will get it, as an RE fan, but when it's cheaper or used or something. I have way too many other games and can't afford it right now anyway.

I gonna have to play it myself. By no means will i buy it and say it is good just because it says Resident Evil and that I need to justify my reason for spending my money. I can't say anything right now but I am fan of Resident Evil.

if I never got a game that had a crap review my game list would be really short =/

I never really trust reviews myself simply because if I like to play the game myself first since everyone has their own opions to games like myself I kinda hate the CoD games [just because they all seem the same to me now] yet I loved Too Human [even with its screwy cam and crappy controls]

sure it'll put a lot of people off but end of the day thats what happens

still got it after reading user reviews and not site reviews -- no, its not flawless but its a solid game. All it is is different..I have yet to run into any of the problems that reviews stated (and i read multiple reviews that contradicted each other)...

my main complaint is vs mode is dark so pick up the brightness and maybe background music or more zombies for online....but definitely a solid game

7.7/10 thus far

@2 spiderman friend or foe! was pretty fun IMO easy but Venom is so bad ass. I am a huge Biohazard (Resident Evil) fan so I ordered the CE, I am installing it as I type for later tonight, if its anything like the L4D campaign It will be fine imo.

@8 CoD has nothing to do with the reviews this game is getting. x360a gave it a 58, and IGN a 4.0. That says something to me. I had it preordered (only $5 down cuz I was unsure) but I am switching that money over to The Witcher 2 now.

1. Its Capcom 2. Its a bad dev team that made a bad bad bad game 3. Its a rushed POS from a bad bad bad dev team trying to sell to fans off name alone.

Point, don't feed the machine. Especially the Capcom one.

Haha people judging before they have even touched the game, what a joke. On a serious note though, I think this sites reviews need fixing. I don't buy a game that scores 58 being "lackluster". Using logic, 58 > 50, 50 = average so therefore 58 is above average. It's things like this that completely devalue reviews using a number based system.

was looking forward to this but after seeing the gameplay it doesn't even look like a resi game and add in the fact that ign gave it a 4 out of 10 think i'll wait till there is another dry spell in releases before i get this, if i even get this.

I won't buy capcom anymore due to their on disc DLC policies and re-releasing games as ultra/super/arcade editions. Even if I did I think I would swerve this one, its made by the second rate SOCOM team and has obviously recieved a critical kick-in for a reason.

For me, this game was a 'maybe' anyway. Based on the comments, I'll give it a miss for now at least. Far too many games to play atm.

I was hyped for this ever since news of it came about, there was a rush of excitement over the few weeks as news poured in, then BANG, it suddenly started to look shit, I still pre ordered it regardless, but the shots, the videos, it looked so boring, so dull, after speaking to some american guys and gals, and after the x360a review, I have cancelled, sorry ORC but count me out. Im gonna grab Silent Hill and Ninja Gaiden 3 instead, and prey, PREY Resident Evil 6 makes up for this. For those of you buying it, I hope the reviews are wrong and have fun.

Only got it to tie me over til RE6. It's honestly not a bad game. It COULD be better but then every game COULD be better in some way or another(ME3's ending).The stories only like 4-6 hours long depending on how much you explore and it seems they focused more so on multiplayer which i may not even touch.

You cant always go by reviews,yeah its not the best RE game,but its fun im tired of people that wont buy a game cuz of the reviews,reviews are just someones opinion on a game,every1 has different taste in games,me i really like this game,i think its alot of fun yeah campaign is not very long but its still fun and more fun with friends,and the online is pretty good too,i think reviewers gave it to low of a rating maybe cuz its alot diffent from other RE games idk,but IMO i would give the game a 8.5 out of 10 cuz of the lack of campaigns,i think since the U.S.S Campaign was so short they should of had more Campaigns on disc,im glad there putting Spec ops campaign as free DLC though,really hoping they will have 1 for the Heroes mode characters or some kind of Survival mode like Horde on gears of war with USS Spec Ops and Heroes characters,but really try the game for yourself if u like it buy it if u hate it dont get it,or u can just go by reviews and say its bad when u never even played it before.

The game isn't nearly as bad as the reviews are making it out to be.

Having said that, I was not happy that when I picked up my copy on release day (granted it was at 6:00 pm), GameStop claimed Capcom had "run out" of the pre-order codes, so I didn't get dick for pre-ordering the game.

They took my info and claim they will have more at a later date, but this just seems ridiculous.

It's not like it a physical object of which there are only so many, it's fucking code, and, knowing Capcom, is probably already embedded on the disk.

So what the fuck?

You gotta understand where the games coming from, it's something diffent and was made purely to keep Res Evil fans at bay till RE6.

I love the game! A fun online MP game that's not bad at all, don't listen to reviews, it's their oppinion everyone has a diffrent opinion!

Yeah I think that reviews on this game are crap. Most of the reviews I have read on this game are basing it on the single player experience. Sure, the single player isn't that great, but is Left for Dead fun on single player? No. Would Borderlands have been the same without its multiplayer? No. My point is that reviewers need to review the game based on what it's main focus is instead. And reviewers need to be open up to new ideas instead of bashing it for not being something they are not used to then turning around and giving CoD 9.5 for being the exact same as it has been for years.

To prove my point, let me point out something in the review on this website. Lee gave this game a 55 on playabilty, opening it with this statement: " Aim at enemies and fire, then repeat in ever area you come across. Throw in some irritating AI...". But a few month earlier in his MW3 (which basically involves the same thing ORC got bashed about in the quote above) review, he gave it a 85.

In case your someone who wants an honest opinion from someone with an open mind for new games that has played this, I will say that if you liked Left for Dead and you have friends to play this with, then you should give this a shot.

This is a great venture into new territory with RE IMO and this is personally a fans dream. I've been having almost non-stop fun since I picked it up. Not perfect but certainly more than entertaining.
