Having been suckered into paying to play Resident Evil games since around inception, I wanted to say how bad they were. Yes, even the originals.
I loved REmake. I got hooked on the pre-rendered static angles of the game. When the Dreamcast brought scrolling to the backgrounds with “Code Veronica” I was hooked.
Resident Evil 4 brought on a controversy where they entirely changed the camera angle. I tried beating the game normally and even with a cheat game save with unlimited ammo for a bunch of super guns, the game lasted for hours until my memory card broke. It’s a boring, boring, boring series.
Even when you mix it up with more action and more dynamic stuff… the original games were about running around and shooting or dodging zombies… it was difficult to score a head-shot on a zombie with how they angled the game. And if that’s not enough, you had to solve puzzles and backtrack like crazy. The areas would just bleed into your brain as you re-explored every zone more than once!
We all cheered with the addition of the Nemesis, didn’t we? A hulking, menacing guy with a rocket launcher who chanted the word “STARS!” Pfft!
I think the best of the games was the two Outbreak editions on PS2 because of each char’s unique skills and personality. I’m still annoyed it hasn’t been ported to PS3… but oh well.
I just stumbled my way through RE 6 and I can’t believe myself when I say “I really would like to play as Leon again…” then there’s a “BUT” and the but is… the game sucked! And now I’m clashing with the idea of a playable Sherry Birkin!?!?!
Maybe I will get back to re-purchasing Dead Rising 2 or getting the remake where you play as Frank West in DR2… I know I sold my 360 for a reason even after collecting a lot of games for it… pfft!
Some part of me is dreading playing that new game … mostly it’s me not wanting to buy something new to find out it is drek designed for a less seasoned game player.
