In the end, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City isn’t the next real Resident Evil game (though its improved controls do bode well for that game). Instead, it’s a mostly solid third-person, cover-based shooter set in the same universe. Granted, it’s a little too Evil in spots for its own good, and not Evil enough in others, and certainly not as good as Left 4 Dead unless you don’t play well with others. But overall, it’s a fun spin-off.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City suffers from poor design and sometimes doesn't quite seem to "get" the point of the style it wishes to emulate, but that doesn't stop it from being a genuinely good time that should satisfy anybody looking for a hardcore romp. As a challenging rollercoaster ride through an iconic fictional catastrophe, Raccoon City provides hours of violent fun interspersed with some exasperated cries of aggravation. It should be noted that those looking strictly for survival horror, or even an experience on par with Resident Evil 4, will likely be disappointed with what this entry offers, as this is about as typical a shooter as the series has ever gotten.

Some diehard Resident Evil fans may be disappointed by Raccoon City for sapping the survival-horror soul out of the series. But the game’s satisfying blend of gunplay and teamwork, coupled with its cool references to past Resident Evil games, make revisiting the perilous streets of Raccoon City worth the trip. Even with its failings, Raccoon City keeps the action rolling along; just make sure you bring some buddies to help you slaughter all the undead

Umbrella may have filled Raccoon City with horrific creatures, but SlantSix has tainted the fabled town in its own way. It’s difficult recommending a return to Raccoon when you have to endure buggy AI, clunky gameplay, and terrible glitches like disappearing floors. Yes, on more than one occasion my friends and I had to ditch whole missions because we kept falling into an empty void. Not even online play is enough to of a reason to warrant checking out this botched experiment with the Resident Evil brand.

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.

The story is paper thin at best and none of the characters are overly engaging, so barring the odd sense of nostalgia from visiting a few time-honoured locations, there's not much here for ardent fans. Even the online sections feel unwieldy and amazingly unbalanced, so there is no saving grace. I could say That Resident Evil: ORC is better in co-op, but then so is any game, and there are certainly much better examples of the genre right now that offer a far deeper and more varied experience. This feels like an opportunity wasted, as the Wolfpack is likely to go out with a whimper rather than a roar.

Given the huge amount of potential the developers of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City had to work with, it’s disappointing how little of it was actually realized. On several occasions I was legitimately surprised by the mention of the name William Birkin or the familiar sound of picking up an herb, having long forgotten that this was supposed to be a Resident Evil game. The terrible AI, the lackluster locations and the complete lack of atmosphere or memorable characters destroy what could have been a brilliant offshoot. In the end, Operation Raccoon City is little more than a poor man’s SOCOM, and a destitute man’s Resident Evil.

Operation Raccoon City is the latest product of Capcom's experiment in working with western developers. Previous games like Bionic Commando, Dark Void and Dead Rising 2 are a mixed bag at best, but this is the poorest result yet, with a show-stopping franchise in the hands of a studio that's clearly not up to it. The brand on Operation Raccoon City guarantees it many sales - perhaps millions. And for every one of those buyers, the name Resident Evil will lose a little of its lustre.

Ultimately, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is everything I hoped it wouldn't be: a mediocre shooter hoping to be bolstered by the Resident Evil name. It takes what is arguably the series' best setting and wastes it, forcing players to plod through generic underground facilities and the occasional, oddly vacant street from one boring encounter to the next.

The intelligent use of horror, intensity, and most importantly, subtleness has gone. While this game is only a diversion until Resident Evil 6 arrives, Capcom have done an amazingly awful job. Resident Evil used to be the trendsetter, the series everyone looked up to, now its identity has been de-constructed in a major way. Let's hope November's numbered release can have a zombie-like effect, injecting the series with a hint of life.
