Review: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, PS3, £37.99

First published in Computer game reviews

The Resident Evil series has so often sought to push the boundaries of survival horror gaming.

And, just when you feel it’s been backed into a dark, zombie-infested corner about to become a parody of itself, the franchise has shifted from third person fixed-camera classic to the more involved, incredible action from Resident Evil 4, and now a team-based shooter where you must tackle all that the Umbrella Corporations and its world wrongdoings may throw at you from the time of the initial outbreak in Raccoon City.

Cue a next-gen beauty of a shooter, where special ops soldiers and every brand of zombie from the first four titles must be dispatched as ruthlessly as possible, using a mixture of team-based tactics.

Following the single-player fun, take the battle online where an excellent multiplayer awaits, bringing the hi-def undead experience to a gore-filled climax.

A great new direction for Resident Evil fans to flock towards.

4/5
