I LOVE the Resident Evil series probably even more than the Final Fantasy series and when Resident Evil 5 came out I was so hyped it was ridiculous. I played that game and the best way to describe it would be to compare it with the Phantom Menace. A lot of people including me liked it, but it was a year or so later where the salt started.
Admittedly I am in the salty category, as when we reviewed it I wasn’t exactly complimentary. Basically it seemed OK at the time, but looking back it was very glitzy, but lacked any substance, and has way too much boulder punching to be taken seriously. It didn’t just jump the shark, it jumped the shark in a volcano.
I need to stop playing awful Light Gun Games. I am fairly sure I am the only person that likes On-Rails shooters, and I am now fairly sure I have played all the good ones.
In my Resident Evil: Survivor review, I said it was a 40% game as a Light Gun Shooter or 45% as a Resident Evil experience, but somehow added up to a decent enough gaming experience, and in the Dino Stalker Review I didn’t especially like it, but it was just about functional.
With that, we scrape the Resident Evil barrel and what is left of Light Gun Games barrel to see if we have an at least functional game.

If TL/DL skip to conclusion.
Resident Evil 5 is an odd one for me. It has a Metacritic score of 83, but I have never met somebody with a good thing to say about it. Even on Reddit nobody really defends 5 (but a lot will defend 6), so who is wrong? Everybody, or Metacritic. Continue reading
I previously reviewed Code Veronica X on the GameCube, and thought it was finally time to come and play the “proper” version of the game. Continue reading
This is the ORIGINAL release of a Game that not only spawned (to date) over 20 sequels, but currently has 3 remakes.
So, for a game to get 4 remakes, it must either be one of the best games ever, or a deeply flawed gem in need of a polish.
So what is it? Continue reading
