Décidément, la série des Resident Evil n'est pas chanceuse quand elle s'attaque au multijoueur. Si Operation Raccoon City part sur de bonnes intentions et dispose d'un système d'habiletés prometteur, la technique, la mise en scène et quelques aberrations de gameplay viennent mettre leurs gros sabots crottés sur le tapis du salon. Toutefois, les fans et les joueurs pas trop exigeants trouveront leur dose habituelle de zombies à trucider, surtout s'ils optent pour le mode Versus, déjà un poil plus digne d'intérêt sur le long terme.

Between the disappointment of the squandered potential and the frustration of the poor design and technical deficiencies, I can’t recommend buying Operation Raccoon City. However, I would suggest cautiously checking back in a month or two when the game has hopefully undergone some much-needed patchwork, a price drop, and the full Spec Ops content is made available. There’s a decent amount of enjoyment to be had, but Slant Six and Capcom didn’t take the time to package it properly, nor did they ensure all the important pieces were included.

A limp and generic single-player is aided by a multiplayer offering with a few good ideas, but on the whole Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City doesn’t feel like a game that will provide enough entertainment to justify you shelling out. In fact if you can't get enough buddies together to form a squad for both the campaign and versus arenas, then you're probably better off giving this game a wide berth like you would the T-virus. A real shame.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is going to be disappointing for many fans. It has taken one of the more popular timelines in the series and turned it into an inadequately designed shooter with none of the true qualities of a Resident Evil game. It just seems to lack the refinement and polish that the franchise is so known for and it destroys the Resident Evil mood as the poor A.I. in the single player, the lackluster locations, and the lack of atmosphere or any memorable characters dampens what could have been a great entry into the franchise. That being said, I did manage to have some fun with the multiplayer, particularly the adversarial, so there is indeed some good here. At the end of the day perhaps this title can satisfy a few die-hard fans of the series who can ignore its flaws, but Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is an average title that just can’t stand out against other, better third-person shooters available.

The result is a game that isn't very good. The core gameplay mechanics are dull, the atmosphere is unsure of what it's supposed to be, and the characters you play as, typically a strong element of Resident Evil games, lack any distinct personality beyond the abilities they come equipped with and the one-liners they throw out in combat. The potential is there, but the game is lacking, and in the end, it fails to be a Resident Evil title worth playing through.

I staden vel dei få som spelar spelet å ty til dei tradisjonelle fleirspelarmodusane som byr på litt moro. Å blande zombier inn i eit skytespel på denne måten fungerer veldig bra, og det kunne blitt supert om det berre låg eit mål og ei meining bak det heile. I staden får vi atter eit anonymt skytespel, med zombier på slep. Det er ikkje godt nok, men det er artig og særeige nok til at det held deg gåande ei stund lenger enn du trudde spelet var i stand til.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is barely worthy of it’s name. An awfully short campaign and bare bones online leaves you feeling cheated at the end. The game could have been great but with so many issues and a lack of modes coupled with the abysmally short story you will honestly question if you even want to buy RE6 in the future. Long gone are the days when Resident Evil spin-offs had the complexity or the storyline of Outbreak or the atmosphere and panic of the Survivor series. Instead we are presented with a lacklustre attempt to keep up with the times.

I can't recall ever having less fun playing survival horror than Operation Raccoon City. Capcom needs to stop running the Resident Evil name through the mud with garbage like this.
