Not a bad game at all, would probably say I enjoyed the storyline aspect alot more than Resident Evil 6. The story is set around Resident Evil 2 and 3 which is in my opinion the best in the series. Not a big fan of the actual gameplay but be warned this is not a game for puzzles etc. The game is action orientated and there are a range of weapons and skills, no 180 degree turn is a little frustrating but it doesn't exactly spoil the game. Plenty of downloadable content (1st one is free) and is longer than most games. The graphics are very good but are by no means excellent, I did expect better from Capcom but then again it probably reflects the game style.

  Not a resi game....

This game was made so it can annoy people. What a let down. The graphics are good (thats why I gave 2 stars). The ai is horrible. The bosses catch you in a corner and then there's a invisible barrier that doesn't let you move. Humans need like 1000 bullets to die even though you shoot them in the head. Wait for resi 6

First let me tell you what is missing from this game.

Mercenary mode, 180 turn around button ( It annoying that you can't really turn around fast ), weapon customisation ( its VERY dark game that you're not allowed to add a simple FLASH LIGHT to your gun ) not a lot of hand guns, weapons really feels bad ( recoil and aiming ), you will usually see people playing with Advance SMG or Hammer sometimes Juggernaut ( USAS shotgun ) because they are the most effective in a game. This game lags and glitches really badly sometimes you are well away from another player only to be grabbed and killed seconds later... It seems players "see" differently. Campaign 7 missions... 3-4 h of gameplay. Even on Veteran there are missions you can just Rush in.

Another thing missing Puzzles and Interesting Boss Fights. Seriously it comes down to one thing : Shoot it. And there is way too much ammo. You will never need ammo. Boxes are to be found everywhere lol... Npc acts really dumb and don't expect much help from them. You can't really interact with environment ( pull levers so your teammate can cross over bridge ) This game is missing SO MUCH. Its not even scary. Multiplayer is just one big frustration if you can't get Assault class or Medic class then you will die a lot. Hero mode is just like Team deathmatch but characters are Beefed up... ( really hard to kill 2-3 clips or 20 knifes... lol ).

In theory it was a good idea but in the end its not worth it. Wait for the price to drop.

Now the good points, Veteran difficulty offers friendly fire lol... Classes are balanced ( except fro Spectre that doesn't do anything in campaign mode ) but multiplayer is unbalanced as hell... It's somehow fun to play even though there is so many flaws and fail ideas... don't know how to put it... but it's just fun to play 4 player co-op seeing them getting infected but then... you start to shoot sniper rife and you realize that it takes 2-3 headshots to kill military guys... sniper rifles are seriously under powered... Switching to side arm is just frustrating and boss fights are boring. It would be more fun if there were some tactics but no... just shoot it where it hurts. Thats it.

Resident Evil ORC is a hollow child from a Capcom ( shame on you ) family. It frustrate you and at the same time give you some fun. Its not worth 30-40 pounds for a glitched game and campaign that is way too short.... even some indie games offers longer campaigns LOL. Fin ~~

  Not quite a classic

First off I'm a massive Resident Evil fan and have been since the original release in the mid 90's.

There are lots of things wrong with this game, the AI is shockingly bad in the single player missions and the game is very short. ,some of the controls are a bit poor, most noticably no quick turn around.

But, with all that said I've became quite addicted to the online modes. Obviously we'll need to wait till Resident Evil 6 to get a better quality game with a Mercenaries mode but ORC is still a pretty good game, if you can forgive its faults.

  A good game!

No idea why this game has very bad reviews everywhere! Played it on PS3 and It's heaps of FUN which is what a lot of games lack nowadays. It's a spin off in a sense from the main Resi Evil games, It's all action/adventure not horror/puzzle. Great graphics, good gameplay, ammo and health readily available and variety of weapons with some character customization too. Similar to L4D in a sense, there are 4 of you in a group and work your way through familiar and new places in Raccoon City. Defo worth picking up if you enjoy Resi Evil and action/zombie games!

  Ultimate Game!!!!

This game is absolutely immense, you would be stupid NOT to buy it! I don't understand why people are giving it such bad reviews about it not being like the other Resident Evil games; it isn't supposed to be like the other Resident Evil games! The whole reason of CAPCOM bringing out Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is so that it's different and unique from the other games. Also, it is a PS3 version of Left 4 Dead which the PS3 has been needing ever since the first L4D game was released. This game is seriously the best Resident Evil game they have released yet, and I cannot wait to see what CAPCOM has up their sleeves for Resident Evil 6!

  Simple

| | See all JoshG91's reviews (1)

A simple game with a nice mixture of characters . The graphics are alright but the lack of customisation like resi5 had is slightly disapointing and the 'fear factor' of it is 0 . very short game but a nice way to get people back into the games before resi 6 is released.
