Latest Resident Evil title flounders with critics

by | @AttackFanboy | on March 20, 2012

When Capcom announced that they would be spinning the Resident Evil franchise into a new direction with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, fans had high hopes for the squad based multiplayer-centric shooter.  With a development team in place that has produced popular online shooters in the past, it seemed like a sure fire hit.  Unfortunately, game critics haven’t been so kind to Capcom’s latest.

With aggregated reviews hovering only slightly above 50, this could be one of the biggest flops of 2012…so far.

Destructoid – 7.5/10 – “Raccoon City suffers from poor design”

Games Beat – 60/100 – “ORC is defective in ways I’ve never seen before”

Game Informer – 6/10 – “Slant Six has tainted the fabled town”

Xbox360 Acheivements – 58/100 “A limp and generic single player is aided by a multiplayer offering with a few good ideas”

EuroGamer – 4/10 – “Operation Raccoon City delivers the bare minimum in every category”

GamesRadar – 3/10 – “One of the worst Resident Evil games to date”
