Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Most Resident Evil games are all about you being stuck entirely on your own trying to escape from a mansion full of flesh-eating zombies--and worse. Resident Evil: Outbreak though was originally designed as an online multi-player game where up to four people could co-operate to escape the zombie apocalypse that is Raccoon City. Unfortuately, "for technical reasons", the final UK version of the game doesn't have any online features at all--but it's a decent enough offline single-player game.

The most notable aspect about Outbreak is the graphics--they're almost as good as the GameCube versions and yet they're in full 3-D instead of just having static 2-D backdrops. Together with the constant calls for help from other people this makes the game one of the most cinematic yet, although the slow-paced psychological horror of the first game has been replaced by all-out fast-paced terror.

Things are made even more difficult since most of the eight characters you can choose to play as are ordinary men and women, not super-cops, so you usually start the game with no weapons other than those you can find scattered around. Although perhaps not the best game in the Resident Evil series, Outbreak is still well worth a look for fans of the genre.--David Jenkins

Manufacturer's Description

Resident Evil Outbreak supports both single player and online multiplayer game modes set within the Resident Evil universe. Resident Evil Outbreak sees the return of two familiar heroes and introduces an all-new story. Featuring a new assortment of characters, the game retains the signature storytelling, visuals, and spine-chilling audio that Capcom's survival-horror fans demand.

Resident Evil Outbreak tells the dramatic story of escaping from decaying zombies infected with the T-virus, and the ultimate struggle to escape from Raccoon City. An outbreak of a secret biological weapon has infected the people of this isolated town which has caused everyday people to turn into flesh-eating zombies that swarm the streets. In a final attempt to stop the spread of the zombies the city is engulfed in flames. A fight is being fought by S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Squads) members Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they are trapped within this horrific nightmare. They wage their war against the pharmaceutical giant, Umbrella who are responsible for the events leading up to this disaster. In the shadow of this nightmare are a few meagre survivors. These survivors must find a way to get out of this city before the government quarantines the entire area by firing a missile and destroying all traces of life. Players must beat the clock or die trying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so bad if contract this one! 10 Mar 2005
By W. Nash
I was rather sceptical when these Resident Evil spin off games came out, no original characters and plots did seem rather uninteresting, however I decided to give them a go and so I bought Outbreak. What can I say about this game? Well actually it's pretty damn good once you get into it. In this RE outing you can actually choose which character to play, they range from a Racoon City police officer to a barmaid even a plumber! In apperence it looks just the same as any other Resident Evil game but the gameplay is somewhat different. On each level you choose a character to play and then will have 2 computer controlled characters along side you. These 2 characters follow you and you can give them weapons and health items etc, and you need to watch out for their wellbeing if you want to complete the level as they're the only assistance you have, if they are wounded you may need to help them to safety, sometimes at risk to yourself. Now I know what your thinking, just two mindless drones that will get in the way and slow you down, well I can tell you now, that's not how it works.
As I've been playing the game more and more I have found they do actually help you out, you can actually call out for help using the R3 button and they will come running and, if armed, will fire at any zombie, licker or BOW attacking you. You will find many guns and other weapons in the game but don't be greedy because it wont help you, instead of hoarding the weapons hand some to your team mates and they will help you, trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outbreak, one of the Greatest Resi's yet! 23 Mar 2005
people critise this game because they are used to the old Resi's but Capcom did pretty well and appear to have put a lot of though into this game to startwith the characters
Kevin Ryman, the Cop
Mark Wilkins, the Security Guard
Jim Chapman, the Subway Attendant
George Hamilton, the Doctor
David King, the Plumber
Alyssa Ashcroft, the News Reporter
Yoko Suzuki, the Student
Cindy Lenno, the Waitress
All with unique attributes, special moves, secret items, personal starting item and personalities (some will pick up all the items otherswill pick up nothing but health items!)
The graphics are.. how should I put this...AMAZING!
the levels are brilliantly made, and the modes of difficulty stand up to what they are, very hard mode is really good the zombies just keep coming doors dont stop them they'll knock them open, items can be pushed to block their paths, but not for long!
this game is a must have for newbies to the series or hardcore fans!

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly Horrific 27 Oct 2004
Outbreak can be summed up in one sentence: A multiplayer-designed, single player game. As such, it just does not work. I can't fathom why, after the decision was made to scrap the online support in Europe, this game was even released over here.
I am a huge fan of all of the previous games in the series (with the exception of the 'Survivor' games, obviously), which made the prolongued release of this entry even more infuriating when it finally arrived. It is rubbish.
Aside from the, admittedly beautiful, graphics, there is nothing else in this game that works:
- Your AI controlled team mates are buffoons, who love nothing more than collecting the (hard to see, but vital) ammo and first aid items, and then running off and dying somewhere, forcing you to struggle through the maps in order to find them.
- The AI is not only stupid, but it is also unresponsive, often refusing to obey the simplest of commands, such as "follow me", for no reason. They also pee away any ammo you give them, firing off five shotgun rounds into a Hunter, when it only takes two or three to kill them.
- The scenarios are disjointed and have no correlation between one another. They are also badly designed, often with puzzles placed in rooms full of respawning zombies, making it hard to work out what exactly you are supposed to be doing.
- As has been previously mentioned, the load times are also ridiculous, ranging from anywhere between 10-30 seconds to change rooms, which is frankly ridiculous.
Overall, as a Resident Evil fan, I have nothing to recommend this. As a Games Designer by profession, I am amazed at how badly constructed this title is. Come on CAPCOM, what on Earth were you playing at?

5.0 out of 5 stars Panic 10 Jan 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Other resident evil games fulfilled the 'horror' part of the survival horror genre. This game however is the opposite, and dispenses you into a situation that is getting worse with the arrival of zombies and other hordes of undead monsters. Add in two computer controlled characters, and you'll realise the emphasis is not always on you; monsters never single you out, and the characters have just as much opportunities to interact with the game world as you do. The lack of weapons and items, and the fact enemies pursue you relentlessly from room to room means quick-thinking and hiding is key to survival. The other characters may be a burden, but you dont have to help them. If they die, the game is not over, and you can continue in your escape. This game, though very experimental, has some flaws, but the risks you need to take in order to complete it overshadow these, and rank the game as being one of the classic resident evil titles, whether online or off.
