For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...

With a precise targeting system and a behind the back few, even people who hated the controls of the previous games will like this. But new controls aren't all. There are zombies of course. But these aren't regular zombies. It seems as if they get the intelligence of the brains they've been eating. They will try to dodge your bullet shots, they will break through windows, they can run, they will do anything to try to kill you. The story line isn't to shabby either. You are Leon Kennedy from RE2 on a mission in a foreign country to find the president's daughter, but the town you visit as strange people in it, i.e. zombies. Along the way you will face amazing bosses. They will definatly put your skills to the test. There really isn't a bad thing I can say about this game. Maybe there could have been a better story...maybe. You will go through a lot in this game, and once you finish you will want to do it all over again.
