We love the Resident Evil series, and with Resident Evil 7 it brings us a massive 11 mainline games if you don’t include the REmakes, so what better way to kick off our first Top 10 of a particular games series?
This list will be the best MAINLINE games, that means no Survivor, and no WII/Portable efforts and no REmakes. So only OG Resident Evil and original version of Code: Veronica.
Also, as Resident Evill VII is not yet 2 years old we will not be including it in this list.
Go! Continue reading
Originally released as individual episodes over the course of a few months, sensible people will have just bought the box set disc and saved themselves effort and money.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed Revelations 1 as it felt like a proper Resident Evil. It also had a story that was relatively well written for a Crapcom game.
So will Capcom knock Revelations 2 out the park, or will it be an incoherent bag of wank like Resident Evil 6? Continue reading
Originally released on portable devices in 2012, Revelations got a proper full release on home consoles in 2013.
In a weird way, I quite enjoy being proven wrong about games. Capcom are responsible for over half of my personal top 50 games of all time, and this includes most Resident Evil games. However, none of Capcom’s games released after 2005 feature in my list. That isn’t to say EVERYTHING Capcom released since 2005 is crap, but a lot of it is. With specific regards to the Resident Evil series I won’t mince my words, Resident Evil 5 was crap, and Resident Evil 6 was an incoherent bag of wank, so jumping into a semi spin-off set between 5 and 6 I was not exactly expecting much.
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.
I love the Resident Evil series, but the only game I truly hate is The Umbrella Chronicles, so when I got the sequel, I was expecting a world of pain. Continue reading
Every now and again I come across a game that blows me away and I really enjoy it. Maybe my expectations were low for RE: Dead Aim, but I found the game way more fun than it had any right to be!
If TL/DL skip to conclusion.
