Capcom exhumes another festering slice of undead blasting fun - prepare to enter Raccoon City for more shambler-dodging action
- Eight new survivors, each with unique abilities that will help them to escape Raccoon City
- Play with traditional digital or 3D pad analog controls
- Multiple endings and outcomes promote repeated play
Capcom revisits Raccoon City for more brain-chewing thrills and spills. Abandoning series regulars S.T.A.R.S, the elite zombie slaying operatives, Outbreak instead concentrates on the stories of eight everyday survivors desperately trying to get out of town, flesh intact.
The Umbrella Corp continues to cause chaos with its genetic tampering, unleashing the T-Virus - a constantly mutating strain with devastating effects, depending on its host. Infecting humans and animals alike, the disease renders victims brain dead and brain hungry, with the living the dish du jour.
Taking sizeable bites out of the Forbidden Sirens and Silent Hills of the genre, with their predilection for non-linear storytelling, the latest Resi Evil switches between five different scenarios, each with their own set of challenges and puzzles.
Choose to play out the chapters as one of eight characters, and employ their special skills to get you out of the City - quickly. Among the stragglers hoping to survive, you'll find over-enthusiastic cop Kevin (a handy choice as he comes armed with a gun), ubiquitous 'plucky young Japanese student' Yoko Suzuki (replete with backpack for handling a larger inventory), pushy reporter and part time lock picker Alyssa Ashcroft, and humorously named (unintentionally, surely?) doctor George Hamilton.
Of course, how you play the game depends on which character you use. Certain circumstances will require a person with more strength or speed, and those 'unique skills' will undoubtedly come in handy, too.
Another change which is likely to please newcomers and longstanding fans alike is the added choice as to whether to control your character using your analog stick, or directional pad (if you're a purist). Either way, you'll be pleased to note that there's plenty of opportunities to shoot the semi-living hell out of zombies, and lots of 'em at that.
