Resident Evil Outbreak

 

The Outbreak series to me had great potential. Potential it comepletely and utterly wasted. To begin this review I will use only the allocated text allowed in the game:

Thanks Thanks Go! Come on! Come on! Help!

I think you get the point.

What's disappointing is that the concept of having eight average civies try to survive the Racoon Outbreak is great, but grossly missused. The lack of any real storyline, the random jumps between areas, going from destroying half the city and zombie population to suddenly appearing underground in the labs from RE 2.

Sorry Capcom, not impressed. Not even a little.

I don't quite know how to explain this, but the game did also lack a "Resident Evilly" feel. Dpn't ask me, I just didn't get the vibes from it.

 

So, point tally-

+Potential

+Average people

-Wasted potential

- Grossly wasted potential

-Hello? Storyline?

-Go! Help! Come on!
