What a superb game this is! Resident Evil 2 is a must have game for all zombie fans old or new. It has a fantastic story along with hours of game play fun as you battle against masses of blood thirsty zombies who are out to kill you. The town is infested with monsters due to a virus outbreak and your job is to help survivors while destroying as many zombies as you can to move along.
I am not one to fault the Resident Evil series as I am a great fan of the stories that have been transferred from film to a fantastic series of games. Resident Evil Deadly Silence is just one in a long list of games that are full of zombie infested fun giving us ardent fans hours of horrific play time as you seek out and destroy the zombie masses that are trying to take over cities or towns all over the world. It has however been criticised by many players for being a rehash of the original Resident Evil game but that said fans will want to add it to their collection that’s for definite.
Resident Evil 4 has arrived at last so us zombie fans can rest easy in the knowledge that the wait is over. This edition is no let down either as it incorporates everything we have come to expect from Resident Evil and more. There is an abundance of blood curdling zombie fun that even the most ardent of fans will find frightening but this is what we want from a zombie barrage so there is no disappointment here.
Sometimes game producers just don’t listen to the fans when it comes to constructive criticism of a release or when suggestions of how games can be improved are made. Resident Evil Zero the first time around had certain features that were at least annoying but could have been resolved before this next release. Sadly this is not the case. What am I going on about? Well the painfully slow mechanism for the creaking doors as an example. You could go out for a stroll and come back in the time it takes for one to open. Slight exaggeration, I know but you get my drift. It is the same with other aspects but I won’t dwell on the negative as despite all this I found the game fun to play.
From Plants vs. Zombies to The Walking Dead, the undead are all the rage these days. After George Romero’s movies, it was the Resident Evil series that put the unwashed, rotting, previously dead masses front and center. Hipster jokes aside, Capcom seemed to know zombies were cool before they were and that spawned a line of games and movies. Due to no small part to Resident Evil 4’s success, Chris Redfield is back in what appears to be a title in the action genre in instead of the traditional survival horror fare. Sure, there are still plague-infested baddies to contend with but the trek through the sweltering desert is no scarier than plowing through the ravaged landscapes in Gears of War. Even Chris is starting to resemble Marcus Fenix. Really, just look at those arms.
