Is it worth it?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I'm just a huge RE fan, played everything since first including survivor titles but that's about the past.

 

Was never interested in this game at first place. looked like cheap L4D clone, but after all that said is it worthy title for RE fan or can I skip it without worrying a damn and wait for AWESOME RE 6

I just got the game today and I would say its worth it for the price I paid. Today you can get it new at Bestbuy.com for 17 bucks and its well worth it. Its not the greatest resident evil, but its not the worst. Yeah it does tie into the resident evil universe so its worth at least a rent from a true fan. But for the 20 bucks I paid for it, I would say its worth a buy.

DAMN! i hope they're still doing this tomorrow! i just went to the website and whenever i add it to my cart it changes the price to $60, but the sales price is 17.99.

 

do you know if they'll be doing this tomorrow? if so im going to go up and pick it up. For $20 i wouldnt care if the game sucks balls, its getting to the point where you cant even get an xbla game that cheap, but to get a SEMI-NEW (could be terrible) retail game for that cheap is a blessing.

The multiplayer server can be a huuuuuuge pain at times (players and zombies glitching, people cheating), but the campaigns are a lot of fun, especially with others. Many of the achievements are pretty easy to get as well, aside from the notorious S+ on all missions.

 

In terms of the storyline it's like an interlude between 2 and 3. Birkin, HUNK, Leon, Claire, Sherry, Ada, etc.

 

So yeah, it's a fun game to tide yourself over until RE6. :]

Well i really liked the game it is in my 5 favorites but if you are looking for something like Resident 4 or 5 this is not your game this is like Gears of war a total shooter but its really fun you can spend 3 or 4 hours shooting zombies playing multiplayer its pretty fun and a frenetic game so yeah its worth buying it :).

For full retail? No, it's not. If you see it for twenty bucks, I'd say get it. I was disappointed in it. So much wasted potential. But it was nice to visit Raccoon City again, you will get some nostalgia trips. And it was pretty fun the first time through, especially if you have a friend to go through it with.

 

But it will only take you five hours, if that to beat it. I haven't played the Spec Ops campaign but that would be another 20 bucks to try it out. I have heard it's better though.

 

Honestly once all these new games come out, I'll pick it up again and the DLC. I'm on a quest to get all the resident evil games.

I've been a fan of RE since '97 and this game puts the series to shame in terms of story and setting. The gameplay is ok for what it is.

 

One of the things that got me hyped was hearing that Nemesis was gonna be in it. When I fought him it felt like taking out a retarded stationary turret. So I gave the Prologue DLC mission a chance because I read that you encounter hiim chasing Jill.

 

Then I was disappointed AGAIN because he's just as retarded as the previous encounter. Nemesis put the fear in you in RE3 and in this game he's just a bullet sponge that can shoot a tentacle at you like Scorpion.

 

The setting is like 50% accurate. In the description for the game it said that you'll re-visit old locations from RE2 and RE3. So when I found out that the Kendo Gun Shop is just a decoration on the side of a building I was disappointed.

 

The only thing almost accurate about the RPD is the main hall. You'll be able to go to the Dead Factory, but it's nothing like you remembered in RE3. There are other places you visit, but they feel nothing like they did from the games.

 

Another description was being able to kill characters from the main series. Technically if you choose to do that you only kill two people and one of them you don't do manually. It's nothing how I imagined the description to be.

 

The DLC has you playing as the Spec-Ops with the same number of missions as the U.S.S. These missions come in two packs that cost $10 each and are just recycled areas of the U.S.S. missions. Another great disappointment there. So instead of buying them I just watched gameplay on youtube and that was good enough for me.

 

The only thing you can possibly like about the game is the mediocre shooting, if that's even something you can appreciate. I feel like a fucking retard paying $60 for this game instead of getting Mass Effect 3 the more I think about it...

I just finished my run of the campaign. For 20 EUR.... eeeh, maybe for a hardcore RE fan this might be worth it, but for me I felt a bit dissapointed. Setup is great and has a lot of potential, but it seems, that game was rushed out.

 

Combat has problems: most of the guns sound and feel under powered, larger enemies can easily lock you with their more powerful attacks in a loop and SpecOps can decimate you in seconds if you aren't careful. The cover mechanic is alright, but buggy as hell. I lost count how many times i got killed by by throwing grenade/ pheromone bottle (I used Four Eyes for most of the campaign) at my face while going to cover and getting blown up or ripped apart by zombies.

 

Story is pretty interesting, but the dull voice acting and lifeless Wolfpack makes it a chore. The ending was also pretty cool idea, but it felt like a last minute idea. The cutscene before the final battle felt like it had been cut in half and missing a lot of dialogue. And yeah, it's cool to see some of the characters from earlier games in this, but they came up mostly either too late or not developed at all (Nemesis.... >:|)

 

Overall, if you're a fan of RE franchise, you might like this. For me, I rather play RE5 again.

One of the worst piles of shit i've ever played! I gave up on mission 7 because it's absolutely no fun, and playing solo is excruciating because your AI team mates are so bad! I rented it, but I would have happily paid full price just to set fire to the disk and watch it burn!

I think I said this before, but this game is a total disappointment to any hardcore RE fan. If I were you, I'd get the japanese version of RE: Outbreak because some guys got private servers for the network mode. That's as good as RE online gets. I just got the first Outbreak going on my pc and I'm using my Xbone controller. It works pretty good for that game.

Honestly this game is not "as terrible" as some may make it sound...

 

Its not a true RE, we all get this, but then again was the last true RE .. true RE? lol

 

Story was decent, seeing familiar faces was good, sure the main characters are not that great and all, but well...

 

Gameplay, well i agree this feel like a GOW meet Rainbow Six kinda game. In story its not "that bad" at all, sure sometimes it could work better but i saw much worst, when it comes to MP for me it suffered from the same problem i have with all TPS, there simply not "Gears of War" ... They always feel slow, clunky, and plainly just not fun to play on a competitive level, and GOW is my favourite VS MP game... I tried Tomb Raider (fantastic campaign, but hated the MP) and many others too.

 

In any case, this game feels like an hybrid of many ideas and wanted to surf on the wave of Left4Dead it seem... and despite some good ideas it kinda melted down weirdly.

 

Far from being the terrible game people want to make you believe it is, yet still a very average shooter that is only aimed at big fan of the series.

 

Thats my overall feel of it, but then again i played it solo only, i think i would actually had fun if i did it online with friends. Sometimes the AI piss me off so badly.. a problem i would not had with real people.
