It's cool to play on the Gamecube, but nothing new here!

The Good

The cool thing about this game is, it really fills in the story from Resident Evil 2, and we all know what an excellent game that was. The one thing I really liked was the choose your own destiny type of scenario, at certain points in the game, two choices will come up, and you need to decide which you will go with, or it screws you over, but if you choose one of the choices, you will usually have to fight nemesis, or, run like a scared baby. Another cool thing with this Resident Evil is the gun powder mixing, you can combine a whole lot of varieties of gun powder and make yourself a whole lot of ammo, like me. I saved all the gun powder till the end of the game, and I mad so much magnum ammo, nothing had a chance. And this wouldn't be a Resident Evil without a bonus mini game in the form of Mercenaries: Operation Mad Jackal. In Mercenaries, you play as Carlos, Mikhail, or Nicholai, all ranging from easy to extremely hard(Nicholai). After choosing your character, you must go through Raccoon City with a bomb hidden somewhere on your person, taking out zombies in a chain of combos, and saving hostages. After accumulating points, you can buy weapons for the main game, such as an infinite assault rifle, an infinite rocket launcher, and infinite ammo. The last great thing about this game is the 180 turn mapped to the c stick, this is extremely helpful when fighting a whole horde of zombies, and you don't have the time to manually turn around.

The Bad

There isn't much not to like about his game, except for the fact that this is almost the same version as the Dreamcast Resident Evil 3, there are the same graphics, the same controls(except for the 180 degree turn mapped to the c stick), and the exact same game in general, no new rooms, no new enemies, not even a gallery mode. As much as I love the Resident Evil series, after the phenomenal Resident Evil remake, I think fans would have liked to see them do the same thing with this game, so, I guess what I'm trying to say is, sometimes sh... anyway, I really loved this game, but with the lack of new things all around, I can not recommend the buying of this game at the price it is set at. For anyone who wants to play this game, I suggest you buy either the Playstation or Dreamcast version, cause this is just not worth the price.

The Bottom Line

This is yet another great game in the Resident evil series, but, at the price they charge for this game, you could buy the Playstation or Dreamcast version at a third of the price.
