Video game Raccoon City the dark side For the first time in the history of the Resident Evil saga, Operation Raccoon City does not offer the player to play as a hero seeking to shed light on a bizarre conspiracy that caused the appearance of mutants and zombies. It’s quite the opposite: embodying a member of a commando hired by the sinister Umbrella Corporation, will have to clean it to remove all traces of the involvement of the multinational in the “events” of Raccoon City.
This is 1998. The town of Raccoon City has been completely sealed off by the army after being contaminated by a deadly virus from a laboratory of Umbrella Corporation, which transforms the inhabitants into undead. With three teammates, the player will have the difficult task of removing documents and embarrassing witnesses, while the city is swarming with monsters and soldiers. Added to a strange mercenary named Nicholai, who seems to him, moving with no particular problem in the city
BETWEEN PURE ACTION AND HORROR
Operation Raccoon City has little in common with the first episodes of the saga, taking place yet in the same places. Away from both the oppressive survival horror first Resident Evil, this is not a result-oriented action-horror, as were episodes 4 and 5. Capcom is the title of a shooter team, much closer to a Left 4 Dead and its predecessors of the license Resident Evil.
Unfortunately, the comparison is not in favor of Operation Raccoon City. Chopped a rhythm, a lack of variety in the construction of levels and enemies too stereotypical make the title much less dynamic than Left 4 Dead. Despite the player the choice between six different characters to play, building and many unlockable weapons, levels follow each other without variety, served by a realization without fulfillment – Xbox 360, the game suffers from occasional slowdowns.
