Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Manufacturer's Description

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City delivers a true third-person team-based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe. Not only does this setting provide a rich backdrop to the action but it also delivers a unique and brutal triple-threat battle. Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W.s) add to the mix as players compete against their team’s opposing squad and tackle this third, unpredictable element that could only exist in the twisted Resident Evil universe.

The result is a brand new style of gameplay that breaks the conventions of traditional third person shooters. It is September 1998 and the action centres on the ill-fated Raccoon City. When the Umbrella Corporation learns that one of its top scientists, Dr. William Birkin, plans to sell the experimental G-Virus to the US Government they order an elite team of Umbrella Security Service (USS) soldiers led by Hunk into their secret research facility to secure the only known sample of the virus. The operation takes a turn for the worse when Dr. Birkin injects himself with the last vial, mutating into a deadly creature, G-Birkin and over powering the team. During the battle the deadly ‘t-Virus’ is leaked into the sewers and spread through Raccoon City, infecting the entire population.

Hearing of the outbreak, the USS team is given fresh orders to destroy all evidence of Umbrella’s involvement and silence anyone that might discover the truth. The Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure service (UBCS) is also deployed to help contain the situation. Meanwhile the US Government has quarantined the city and dispatched its own team of special operatives to determine the source of the mysterious outbreak. Caught up in the chaos are rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Soldier (U.S.S) and battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City. Choose from six characters,each one equipped with a unique skill set, including the female field scientist Four-Eyes who can manipulate the T-virus and take control of the B.O.W’s raiding the streets of Raccoon City or the weapons expert and U.S.S team captain Lupo.

Features:

  • Team based shooter set in the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe.
  • Triple threat battle as zombies and B.O.W’s add to the action.
  • Return of favourite RE enemies, including Hunters, Tyrants and the Nemesis.
  • Risk infection from the hordes of zombies, zombie dogs and lickers. Fight to survive with anti-viral sprays, your character’s special skills or help from field scientist Bertha before your character’s condition worsens, turning you into a violent zombie who will attack your own team members.
  • Compete with up to three friends as an Umbrella Security Service squad member in Campaign mode.
  • Choose from six U.S.S characters, each with their own unique skill set and roles.
  • Rewrite the history of the Raccoon City outbreak. Destroy all evidence of Umbrella’s involvement at the City Hall and discover UBCS operative Nicholai Ginovaef’s true intentions.
  • Explore Raccoon City, collecting evidence and intel to report back to Umbrella command.
  • Competitive online multiplayer modes provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three corner combat between the Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops and threat of zombies and B.O.W’s.

Product Description

Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City delivers a true third person team based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe and a reinterpretation of the events depicted in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. The setting of the Resident Evil universe not only provides a rich backdrop to the action but delivers a unique and thrilling triple threat battle. Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W's) add to the mix as players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle this third unpredictable element, creating a brand new style of gameplay and breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters.

It is September 1998 and the action centres once more on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella's actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.

Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks such as the Raccoon City Police Department and fan favourite characters, including Leon S. Kennedy, who as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City is on your hit list to eliminate. Players will experience a retelling of classic moments from past titles Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 and watch the events unfolding from the menacing perspective of the Umbrella Security Service, giving fans the chance to rewrite the history of the Raccoon City outbreak.

3.0 out of 5 stars what have Slant Six done to Resi 25 Mar 2012
By Su TOP 50 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was really looking forward to this game. I pre-ordered it back in December. I've been playing it since I arrived home from the store with it and I am incredibly disappointed.

The first thing is that Capcom may have its name on this game (and in retrospect may wish they hadn't), it is in fact the offspring of a company called Slant Six. I am informed that Slant Six has been responsible for some of the worst games available.

It is a team based game, but you can play it alone if you really want to put yourself through it. If you do play solo then you get a team of semi-useless AI characters. It is possible to complete the game this way, but it isn't easy. Yes it is a little better as a multiplayer, but not much.

The "story" takes place during the time frame of Resi 2 and 3.

You start off with the "Wolfpack". Remember them, the team that went in with Hunk (the Grim Reaper) to recover the G-virus that Birkin was going to hand over to the US government and was wiped out by the G-Birkin, the only known survivor being team leader Hunk himself. Sadly, you can't play Hunk himself; you are just one of the team. All of that is Resi Law it's in RE2 - Leon and Clare go running round Raccoon City and run into Ada and the Birkins, and a lot of zombies.

It should have been interesting, the whole story from the Umbrella side - like with Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles where the whole story was told through Albert Wesker's eyes. In this case there was no story, not even the old ones to follow through - even in what should have been the story mode.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Compare this to a Resident Evil Game! 1 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly this is NOT a true Resident Evil game. i.e, it is not part of the series.

It is a sub-story telling how the umbrella spec-ops feared during the 2nd and 3rd installments of the game. In short you won't care as none of the playable characters have any substance to them.

I've played through it twice now, it is just too glitchy! Rubbish gun control, special abilities that do very little, appalling AI characters that will just kill themeselves over and over. The list goes on.

There are not enough models of zombies, you find yourself shooting the same one over and over again... It's as if Racoon City was inhabitited by twins and triplets!

In the game you encounter bigger BOs like Hunters and Lickers (I was excited too), but they are awful. The Hunters are more or less invisible and the lickers seem to hover as if they dicovered levitation in one of the labs underneath Racoon City.

This game could have been so much better if Capcom had just done it themselves. I believe Slant Six (I've not played anything from them before) are the ones to blame here. They were given one of the leading game titles to use and didn't take much care in delivering a good product, they rose on the success of the brand.

Resident Evil sells, we all know that... But only a good Resident Evil game is remembered.

My advice... Wait for RE6

Resident Evil 6 (PS3)

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a straight up action game 7 Jan 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There's nothing wrong with an all out action game, but you need a solid combat system with decent weapons and firefights to keep you coming back for more. I haven't played this in a few weeks now, because the game is relentless in terms of action and it's not particularly fun action either. I tried playing it online and no-one is joining my game at all, so it's a bog standard single player game to me now. I will complete it at some point when I can be bothered, but just don't bother buying it, the shooting mechanics are pretty poor and take a lot of bullets to kill, you'll end up reloading more than once to kill someone at a distance for example, unless it's a sniper rifle, the game is apparently extremely short, you can finish it within 6 hours or less and you wouldn't want to come back to it. I'll be sticking to the main franchise if I continue to buy Resi games. Resi 6 is a pretty fun game, much better than this in terms of fun and value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rotten City 9 July 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a big fan of the Resident Evil series and II have been known to go into a near fan boy rage in defence of some of the games that have come out stamped with the Resident evil seal, admittedly the quality of past titles made this quite an easy thing to do. But then along came RE5 and which for me was the worst of the main RE titles along with the Outbreak games which to this day I still have never finished due to a lack of playing rather than not being able to complete I might add.
This aside I was looking forward to this new squad based spin off and even after hearing some less than favourable reviews I still held out hope that this game would be great, unfortunately all that hope was in vain as Capcom have seen fit to rubber stamp this truly shocking title that was developed by another company.
Now don't get me wrong this isn't Blacksite bad but considering the legacy of the Resident Evil brand this is easily one of the worst titles in the illustrious series.
Where does it go wrong? Well take your pick everything from the poor team AI, the shocking controls and the bland graphics. I could go on but you get the general idea, the only thing this game does well or less painful is the introduction of online squad team mates which means that you don't have to suffer at the hands of your AI squad mates.
The overwhelming issue which does not bode well for RE6 due to be released Q4 2012 is Capcoms obsession with CoD and attracting more of their audience. It has become somewhat of an obsession at Capcom as hardly an interview goes by without them mentioning CoD or taking some of its market share. This in turn has lead them unsuccessfully into using western developers on this game to give the game a more action orientated twist.
