To be honest if there is one game franchise that's chased me through life its been the Resident Evil one. Its got great characters, some magical twists and when you add that creepy scary zombie ass feel to it, you know damn well that it gives you the chills every time you turn the console on.

All this is a great thing and whilst I absolutely loved the first two films, the later seemed to have fallen a little flat so I really wasn't expecting that much from this, the latest title. That was until I picked up the novelisation, I loved the way that John brings it over to the reader and the close work between the novelisation and the script is obviously very clear. It works wonderfully well for me as a reader and when the emotional aspect is brought over with cracking high action sequences it may well prove that this film (if as good as this book) could be the one to bring it back in line.

I am big fan of Zombies and have enjoyed the Resident Evil movies. The novelizatin of the lastest movie is okay but it is clear that it could have been edited better. As always there is none stop actions and we get see some characters that we thought were gone for good. Overall the novelization was decent but I can't wait for the movie to come to DVD

Read this just before I watched the film. The book was so well written and described it was as if I was sat in the cinema watching it for a second time. Interesting little original plot is also included. Definitely recommend as I would all of the resident evil books ( S.D.Perry etc).

good book, needed proof reading though. 5 Oct. 2012
By R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a good book (although I still have a few more chapters till I finish it). My biggest complaint was that it seems like no one really sat and proof read the book! They misspell Wesker's name at one point saying it was "Wexler" or something like that. Also at one point, Alice has no boots, then magically gets a pair of boots, then somehow she is barefoot again- with no explanation at all. And it flips between boots and no boots quickly. Otherwise, it does fill in where the movie left out things. Aside from the lack of proof reading it is a good book.

Trying to be optimistic... 7 Oct. 2012
By Linzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love all things Resident Evil, so of course I purchased this book to add to the collection. I'm about eight chapters in and am probably not going to finish it because apparently this author did not have this book proofread before publishing. The continuity is awful (an item of clothing was never there, then is, then isn't again). Parts of the previous movie retelling are incorrect. And the spellcheck errors are terrible (instead of 'apprehend or destroy,' the book says 'apprehend dr destroy'). I understand mistakes are made and no one is perfect, but this is definitely a publication I wish I hadn't purchased. :(

Not my favorite. 6 Oct. 2012
By Bradley T. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book was more of a disappointment than the movie. At least when the movie lacked plot and character development you got to see some awesome fight scenes. I enjoyed the other resident evil novelizations. Just couldn't get into this one.

A good novel with a few issues 25 Sept. 2012
By Travis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm going to start this review by saying there are spoilers from book and movie.

Okay so it wasn't the best (but certainly not the worst) piece of Resident Evil related fiction that I've ever read but overall I did find it to be enjoyable, with just a few notable things that I had a problem with. Overall it stuck fairly well to the source material, expanding nicely on a few things where it could be, but there were a few places that deviated quite a bit (if you do not wish to have anything SPOILED feel free to stop reading here, the story isn't bad and I think it is worth a read) with some of the bigger points being highlighted noted.

1) Albert Wesker (as seen in Resident Evil: Afterlife) was a clone and was killed aboard the Arcadia before Jill attacked. The book had nothing about his escape with the VTOL jet, much less the jet's destruction and Wesker's actual survival thanks to a parachute.

2) There is no mention of the Red Queen at all. In and of itself not the worst thing (I can accept that it was a backup of her in the movie but I would have liked a little more background on her takeover of Umbrella) but without her at all it makes it appear that Jill was the person in charge of Umbrella Prime (though it retains her being controlled by someone/thing thanks to the Scarab device).

3) There was a side plot that started about halfway through the story and only really popped up every few chapters until it took over as most of the final hundred pages. I have no issues with side plots but it involved a random group of people who went from Umbrella Prime to Catalina Island after stealing Jill's submarine. The characters kind of came out of nowhere and returned there by the end.

4) There was very brief section (around a paragraph) which implied that Jill and Leon were partners in S.T.A.R.S. before the Arklay incident but she seems to be the only one to remember that.

5) The one thing that I really did like (and would have enjoyed seeing in the movie) was Rain mutating after injecting herself with Las Plagas during the final battle.

6) The only encounter in the New York test zone was between Alice and a 'Rain' zombie, no Executioner battle.
