How we rate the games?
If you are after horror, you have surely seen the film, known as Resident Evil. If you are scared from such things, you better not watch the video gameplay, but I tell you before we start, that this game is nothing compared to the older ones. The idea of the game is to remove the infected virus and save the world. It is not going to be simple, but it will surely be horror. The game was very disappointing, especially for those who have already played the older franchise. There are a lot of bugs and bad programming, that you sometimes might feel offended, because you cannot even move and the enemies keep kicking you.
The gameplay is alright, not good, not bad. Whatever you might come up to and think it was great, I don't really know, since there was nothing except the infected people cooler in the game. You shoot at their weak points and that's it, they will die in no time. It really depends though, which type of enemy you are attacking, because sometimes there are tougher enemies than expected. Even the film was a true disaster. Really weird, but at least had some cool stuff. Going back to the game, I assure you that this is the worst Resident Evil of all times and this is why I have personally pushed the review to a later date. Maybe it was the companies funds which made the game so bad, I don't actually know the real reason, but there is good new also: A new Resident Evil 6 is coming. This new one is going to be just like the older games, but this is what they say, so don't expect any new stuff.
The graphics are very good, there is nothing really wrong with that. I personally liked a lot the textures and pushed everything to high when making the review. Sometimes, I might lower stuff since it is important to have some cpu power in order to record the gameplay. If they made a bad gameplay and good graphics, than this is a clear sign that games are trending on to graphics, rather than giving an amazing gameplay. We gamers, really hope that will change in the near future with the release of some game titles. Even the graphics optimization was very good, since I didn't notice any slowdowns while recording, but normally you get more frame rates (FPS is the term for Frames Per Second or an idea of photos per second the graphics processing unit can produce) if you have a more powerful cpu and gpu in the same time. The models of the evil creatures, were good too and you would feel the same way if you have a look for yourself.
Optimization of the game was one of the worst things I have ever seen in a lot of time. If the boss of the level crashed you down, he will attack you again leaving no room of getting up again and going on and on to infinity until you are dead. The same thing might happen when you go near an enemy and that is amazingly stupid. I think that ruins the entire feel and gameplay of the whole game, giving lower points to the final optimization points. If you think about it, what would you do if you crashed below the boss and he kept attacking you with the same crash attack all the time? You would never recover from that and that is funny too, because you know you can't do anything to prevent this circumstance, in the same time intimidating you. I really do hope that the new Resident Evil won't be like this one because this was horrific in a very bad way.
Talking about the story, this one was not great neither. It was alright, but not that good as the old ones we used to play. I remember the old one on PlayStation 1, with that evil dog barking all the time and that was far better because you got scared at least, but not creatures with evil stuff, killing enemies, running like a freak so they won't kill you and you still could complete the game that way. All in all, this is a very bad game, no matter what you might think of.
Sound was ok, nothing bad. The scary moments and the voices were good enough, nothing to feel bad about. Don't expect miracles on this one though, since it is just sound from a crappy game and I am really uninstalling it in the time of writting. You can go and buy this game, but I absolutely recommend you not to do that, since this is extremely boring and has a lot of weird bugs during the game. One thing I forgot about, was when I was running and when I reached the door, I pressed E to open it, but the player just jumped onto the floor! Amazing, isn't it? I think there weren't any beta testers, since one 30 minute of play, made me find the worst bugs in the late video game industry. I really do hope this time, it will all turn around and the new one is really near to its release date.
Overall, the game was not cool. I didn't like it and uninstalled it, in the meantime being offended on why did I choose this game? It was so cool in the old days, but now it is the other way around. Don't take everything too seriously though, since you can find stuff which are interesting to you and I didn't pay attention, but you know that I am just saying those words for the sake of not making any mistake and hurting someones feelings about the franchise. Whatever you choose to do, have fun!
