About Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

It is September 1998 and the action centers once more on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the U.S. Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella's actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four-player co-op in a battle against all the competing forces at play in Raccoon City.

Summary

Strictly a game to be played with friends, but even then Operation Racoon City will leave you wondering: why?

We like

  • Playing 4 player co-op with friends and different classes can be a blast
  • It makes us yearn for Resident Evil 6 even more

We dislike

While you can’t really blame Capcom for taking its popular franchise and trying to widen its appeal among Western gamers, spin-offs rarely work and the experiment certainly hasn’t paid off with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. In fact, this new cover-based shooter spin-off...
